Benefits of using the Bin Butler

Reduce injuries and WCB costs

We all expect the on-site custodian to move heavy containers without a thought of how heavy they are and about how easy it is for them to pull a muscle or slip and injure themselves, causing thousands of dollars in WCB costs. Now, have them safely and easily move the bins with the electric Bin Butler.

Minimize potential damage to buildings and vehicles, minimizing your insurance costs and claims

The Bin Butler ensures your on-site custodian has full control of the bins at all times to minimize any damage and lower your claims costs.

Save money

By using the Bin Butler, rather than contracting a 3rd party to move containers to the curb for servicing by your hauler, you will save money. You also reduce the time the bins are away from the waste and recycling room, minimizing inconveniences for residents and minimizing clean-up.


  • The Bin Butler is manufactured in Canada and almost all the parts are sourced from other North American manufacturers, which employs people here in North America.
  • Our electric tugs can be rebuilt (when the time comes in the future) as all the parts are available. If you consider buying a foreign-made tug, ask first if you can obtain parts to rebuild the transaxle or replace any broken part. Chances are, if you buy a foreign-made tug, you can’t get parts and you will have no option other than to buy another new tug.
