Hide what’s inside with Covrit (cover-it)
Dumpster Enclosures

Whether it’s retail, municipal, commercial, or multi-family residential, your building needs a dumpster. Traditionally, you might have used CMU with some type of gate, “because that’s what we’ve always done” (the most expensive words in business). Time for a change.

Covrit Dumpster Enclosures are elegant (even though we know what they’re concealing), durable, and made to order. Check out your design options below.

Project Spotlight

This is one of our favorite projects. Look how it turned out!

This ground screen, along with enclosures for a generator, HVAC unit, and three dumpsters were custom designed to coordinate with the look of a new senior living facility in Strongsville, OH. It’s no accident that these enclosures enhance their surroundings. We color-matched the posts, frames, and vented aluminum stiffeners to the color of the exterior trim. The Plankwall in Brownstone provides a seamless complement to the surrounding landscape and building facade.

We like this project so much, our manufacturing team has a photo of it posted at their workspace!

The purpose of a Dumpster Enclosure is to hide or contain trash from sight. Care should be taken to ensure you have adequate room on all sides of the dumpster as well as enough height to conceal the top of container. Use the table below as a guide to selecting the best size enclosure.

Note: For multiple unit enclosure, multiply the length times the number of units.

Dumpster Enclosure Wall Styles


Look closely. Touch it. Tap on it. Those might be odd recommendations for a dumpster enclosure, but this PlankWall material feels and looks like wood-grain without the up-keep of real wood. That means resistance to stains, mold, and mildew. No maintenance. PlankWall is engineered to last and enhances any building design.
