Introduced at WASTECON 2013, the Bear Cart is a high-performance residential cart specifically designed to ensure that waste and recyclables remain protected from prowling animals and outdoor elements.
The 96-gallon Bear Cart’s features include a solid, threaded steel lid hinge bar, a rear handle with steel supports, reinforced back lid plates, a one-piece bite plate that acts as a latch shield to prevent tampering by animals, and a cart body protected by a continuous z-bar steel wrap and channelled corners. The Bear Cart is also work glove-compatible, offers easy handling, and provides excellent balance between stability and maneuverability. It is available with any standard cart body colour and is UV-stabilized. Hot stamping and the industry's largest in-mold labels will allow customers to display their company or city logos, serial numbers, as well as unique waste/recycling program instructions.
In addition, the new carts are RFID compatible. The addition of Cascade Cart Solutions’ Xtreme Tags will allow customers to assign each cart to a specific location, generating key data such as community waste or recycling participation rates. Finally, Bear Cart’s can be shipped in stacks of six, with fully assembled lids.
