Depot containers

Steel containers for clever waste disposal and recycling collection

Whether glass, paper, leather, vinyl or plastic, residual waste or electrical scrap, our depot containers made of galvanized steel panels can simultaneously collect up to three different materials in one container. A self-closing flap has been integrated to the openings to protect against fire emergence and water ingress.

Benefit from the highly economical solutions and rapid and easy emptying with efficient single-person operation, using the proven SSI SCHAEFER system.

Single-chamber and multi-chamber system

Our single-chamber system collects one type of waste in the depot container. This is highly recommended at locations involving large quantities of a single type of waste. In contrast, the multi-chamber system cleanly separates the waste types. Partitions divide the container into two or three chambers and in addition, the modular base system enables partitions to be retrofitted at any time.


Rapid, simple, safe, and cost-effective

Benefit from up to a 66% performance improvement when using depot container systems from SSI SCHAEFER in comparison to other depot containers! For you this means that SSI SCHAEFER depot containers can be emptied 20 times per hour in comparison to 12 times per hour for standard depot containers.

Our sound insulation also exceeds the standards. Defined by the German Federal Environmental Agency, the noise emissions when glass bottles are thrown into our containers is below the Class 1 noise limit. . That is why our system is rated as “low noise”. We achieve this by fitting the containers with an elastic flap cover made of rubber, foam coatings on all side walls and floor, a sound absorption method in the roof section and a plastic-covered fall arrester.

In addition, SSI SCHAEFER’s proven Grumbach system guarantees additional noise reduction on removal trucks during the intervening process. The optimum insertion depth of the container ensures that it is emptied quietly and near to the ground.
