Dumpster Enclosures
Hide What’s Inside!

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 options below.

Project Spotlight
Custom designed enclosure.

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

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. PlankWall is engineered to last for years of worry free maintenance.

Adding cutouts or decorative elements to your enclosure or gates is as much about design as it is function. A cutout can provide visual interest to a wall section or gate and also create a view port for security purposes, or ventilation for enclosed equipment. Our team loves the unique ideas that architects and designers have come up with. Share your idea with our team, we’re up for the challenge.
