Dumpster Enclosures

A growing number of communities across the United States are adopting zoning regulations that involve community appearance standards that place demands on screening all the site equipment, loading docks, outside storage and trash disposal. At the heart of the matter are dumpster and mechanical equipment enclosures. These enclosures are being brought into the building envelope in regards to matching the design and quality of the building materials.

PalmSHIELD is here to help. Our architectural solid screens and louvered enclosures are designed to contribute to your overall property’s appearance. Not intended to be fencing but to be a solid surface architectural structure that matches the quality and appearance of your building exterior finish. Your dumpster enclosure or mechanical equipment screen should be a design element and not an eye sore.

Based on industry waste management standards and working with architects for the last twenty years, we have designed a series of standard enclosures for dumpster containment. Fortunately, the waste management industry has standardized their commercial dumpsters. Based on these standard dumpsters, PalmSHIELD has provided standard enclosures for single, double and triple dumpsters.
