About Toter

Toter® introduced its first product in the 1960s: an automated cart system for curbside garbage collection. Since then, Toter has been recognized as the leading manufacturer of two-wheeled carts for curbside automated waste, recycling and organics collection by cities, private waste haulers and recyclers. Today, Toter is the top-selling cart brand for the curbside collection of waste, recycling, and organics, and manufactures organics carts, caster carts, stationary containers, front-load containers, tilt trucks, cart lifters, and more for a variety of markets. In 2007, Toter joined the Wastequip family, the leading North American manufacturer of waste handling and recycling equipment.

The Patented Process That Makes a Toter® Cart a Toter Cart.

Toter's engineers and designers developed—and patented—a revolutionary breakthrough in rotational molding known as Advanced Rotational Molding. It’s how we were able to create the world's toughest carts.

Advanced Rotational Molding™ eliminates built-in stress, weakness and brittleness associated with injection molded products. In addition, Toter’s use of linear medium density polyethylene (MDPE) is specifically engineered for toughness and high-impact resistance. In contrast, injection-molded carts are made with high density polyethylene (HDPE), which is rigid, brittle and offers poor impact resistance. 

  • Superior toughness and durability
  • Single-piece product design – no seams
  • Consistent wall thickness
  • Stress-free, zero-pressure product 
  • Unique design and structural capabilities like Rugged Rim, sealed stop bar journals, and granite finish 
  • UV stable
  • Custom colors
  • Corrosion- and chemical-resistant 
  • Ability to mold in graphics

Green. No Matter What Color You Choose.

In addition to outperforming every other cart on the market, Toter® carts contribute to sustainability initiatives.

Reduced Material Consumption

Compared to other carts, each 96-gallon Toter cart is manufactured with up to five fewer pounds of plastic.

Longest Service Life

Toter offers a 15- to 20+ year active service life, compared to a 10-year service life for injection-molded carts. Toter carts are manufactured with a stress-free, Advanced Rotational Molding™ process using medium density polyethylene (MDPE), giving Toter carts a superior strength-to-weight ratio when compared to injection-molded carts containing high density polyethylene (and high residual stress). Longer service life essentially eliminates early cart replacement, reducing material consumption by at least 50%.

Recycled Content

Toter carts are manufactured with up to 50% recycled content.


Toter carts are fully recyclable. In fact, Toter recycles used carts into new carts every single day.

Reduced Fuel Costs & Lower Emissions

With a 0.2% warranty claim rate—the industry’s lowest, by the way—Toter carts are virtually maintenance-free. Toter’s lower annual failure rate reduces the number of repairs and replacement trips. And because Toter carts nest, service providers can deliver up to three times more carts per trip.
