Installation: All models of enclosures use similar installation process

All enclosure uses similar squaring methods for models 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 cubic yard dumpsters, either all steel or ceramic laminate and 30 to 40 cubic yard compactor enclosures for setting up the posts and finding square.

Installation of enclosure for 30-40 cubic yard trash compactor

Basic measurements for layout:

  • The trash compactor enclosure will set on a pad size 204” x 324”
  • The enclosures are 192.645” x 312.36” measured from outside posts
  • Gate opening: measured from inside posts is 184.645”

Step 1: On the 204”x324” concrete pad

Step 2: Measure from corner to corner from the 188.645” x 308.036” square on a diagonal line which is 361.211” this proves square.

Step 3: At each corner place post on the intersecting line which will put the post on center.

Step 4: Repeat this on all four corners. Measurement from center to center on the post is 188.645” x 308.036. There are 10 posts with the large compactor enclosure. The measurement from center to center front gate view. Left hand side post 1 to post 2 105.999” post 2 to post 3 105.999” post 3 to post 4 96.039”. Note the two front gate posts can be distinguished by the hinges which should be closest to gate opening. The gate posts center to center measurement is 188.645”. Right hand side post 1 to post 2 is 105.999” post 2 to post 3 is 105.999” post 3 to post 4 is 55.468” post 4 to post 5 is 40.571”. Rear post from end post to center post is 94.323”.

Installation of enclosure for 10 cubic yard dumpster

  • General info: This installation is for the all steel dumpster enclosures. The enclosure will handle a 10 cubic yard dumpster
  • Review photos showing installation
  • Basic measurements for layout
  • The dumpster enclosure will set on a Pad size 130” x 130”
  • The enclosures are 120” x 120” measured from outside post
  • Measuring from center of post makes a square 116” x 116”
  • Gate opening; measured from inside posts is 112”

Step 1: On the 130” x 130” concrete pad snap string a square 116”x116” which is 7” from the side of the pad.

Step 2: Measure from corner to corner from the 116”x116” square on a diagonal line which is 164.049” this proves square.

Step 3: At each corner place post on the intersecting line which will put the post on center.

Step 4: Repeat this on all four corners. Note the two front gate posts can be distinguished by the hinges which should be closest to gate opening.

Step 5: Once post is placed on intersecting lines, measure between posts, measurement should be 112”.

Step 6: As post are in proper position drill holes’ in center of the slotted area, this allows adjustment room.

Step 7: Place concrete anchors in each drill hole and tighten within .25” of contact of base plate. This secures the post from falling over but loses enough to adjust the assemble.

Step 8: Assembly of lower rails, each rail has a cover that matches. The lower rail can easily be identified. It has large drainage openings which face towards the ground. Place cover on rail and put screws on the bottom screw area only. Once this has been achieved slide rail into bottom holes in each tube with the screw cover side is pointing in to the enclosure. Place bolts through the post and through the bottom rail. Once bolts are in place, place nuts and washers on assembly. Don’t tighten bolt until the entire enclosure is assembled.

Step 9: Assembly of middle rails, each rail has a cover that matches. The middle rail can easily be identified. It smaller then either bottom rail or top rail. Place cover on rail and put screws on both bottom screw area and top area. Once this has been achieved slide rail into middle holes in each tube with the screw cover side is pointing in to the enclosure. Place bolts through the post and through the middle rail. Once bolts are in place, place nuts and washers on assembly. Don’t tighten bolt until the entire enclosure is assembled.

Step 10: Assembly of top rails, each rail has a cover that matches. The top rail can easily be identified. It has slots openings which face towards the ground. Place cover on rail and put screws on the top screw area only. Once this has been achieved set top rail assembly aside, it will be used later.

Step 11: Place picket into bottom rail slot and press in, line up hole with hole in middle rail, put self-taping screw in and snug. Do not over tighten. Repeat this process until all pickets are in on one side of enclosure.

Step 12: Install top rail; the top of post has open slots to install top rail. Starting at one end gently slide picket end into top rail. Once you have all pickets installed into top rail, review before installing bolts or screws. If all pickets are installed into top rail, install post bolts on top rail. Do not tighten bolts.

Step 13: install picket self-tapping screws on bottom rail first, do not over tightened, just snug. Next install self-tapping screws on top rail for pickets.

Step 14: Repeat the process on the remaining two walls.

Step 15: At this point all the walls are assembled, place post end cap on by tapping lightly with rubber hammer or by hand.

Step 16: After all post caps have been installed tighten all the bolts on the post. Do not over tighten. If you tighten bolts before you place post caps on the post cap will not fit. The reason for this by design, the cap has a friction fit designed to get tight by tightening post bolts.

Step 17: Place gate hinge section on post pins. (side frame 7.2) Note: there is a ball bearing which must be placed in each hinge with light grease. After achieving hinge section installation repeat procedure to opposing hinge section.

Step 18: Place bottom frame #4 into side frame and install bolts. Place side frame 7.1 which has caine bolt support on it, to bottom frame and bolt it.

Step 19: assemble center frame to center frame cover using self-taping screw. Assemble using step 8. Once the center frame is assembled install the frame with screw side facing toward the inside of the enclosure. Bolt in place on both ends.

Step 20: Place picket into bottom rail slot and press in, line up hole with hole in middle rail, put self-taping screw in and snug. Do not over tighten. Repeat this process until all pickets are in place. Follow Steps 11 and 12. Tighten all bolts and adjust until level. If your unit comes with wheel support, it will act as self-leveling if the pad is level. Repeat the same process on opposing gate assembly.

Step 21: After both gates are installed and all bolts and concrete fasteners are tightened, line gates so they are square to the enclosure. Place a cane bolt in support and let it rest on the pad. With a construction pencil draw around the cane bolt. Repeat this on the opposing gate. Remove cane bolts and open gate. Using a .75 or large hammer bit drill, drill a hole 4" to 5” deep. Ream hole out to loosen tolerance. This will allow the cane bolt to easily enter the hole.
