Storm Water Management with Dumpster Lids

by Valley Box Company on Thu, Jul 14, 2016

It’s never too early to start planning for the rainy season and you can begin by making sure your business meets storm water compliance at local, state, and federal levels. Under the statewide Industrial General Storm Water Permit (IGP), waste materials and trash must be contained in tightly lidded dumpsters to prevent rainwater from collecting inside and leaking from the bottom, which introduces pollutants such as oils, grease and garbage to storm water runoff. Local and federal regulations require an effective Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) as well. Fortunately, Valley Box has you covered at all levels. 


Valley Box has developed a new solution for storm water dumpster lids that features a unique design that complies with all storm water exposure regulations. Valley Box has also created these dumpster lids with you, the end user, in mind to deliver a dependable, cost-effective, easy to operate, lightweight product unlike any other on the market.

Valley Box storm water dumpster lids are proudly made in the USA and can be shipped within North America. Once received, the lids may be installed/removed with forklift in a matter of minutes. Here’s how it works: using your forklift, enter tines into the forklift pockets, lift lid off dumpster, lower and set aside, dispose of trash as usual. After, use forklift to lift the lid back on top of the dumpster. That’s it. Quick, easy, you're done! Watch this video to see them in action
