Used hoppers from American Surplus are ideal for handling bulk products or waste. They are very useful at the end of assembly lines and are available in plastic or steel. They are also commonly referred to as used tilt hoppers, used steel trash hoppers or used utility hoppers. The steel trash hoppers have forklift pockets on the bottom for easy transport and dumping. Used Bulk Containers are long term, reusable containers made of durable plastic that fold and break down for easy storage when not in use. They typically feature a drop gate on the side for easy picking. Our used wire baskets are similar to the bulk containers but are constructed of wire mesh. They are lightweight and portable, and can be picked up and moved with a forklift. They have convenient drop gates as well and allow for the contents of the basket to be clearly visible. American Surplus also sells used IBC totes, or IBC tanks, that are reusable containers for liquid storage. The totes are reinforced with steel bars for protection and are able to be completely drained. However, because they are used, we strictly sell "Non-Food Grade" used ibc totes. We also sell used industrial hampers that are ideal for laundry or mail. They allow employees to move heavy loads very easily and are on casters. They come in two materials, vinyl or canvas, and a wide variety of sizes.
