A Better Way to Manage Waste


The Molok® Deep Collection™ system is a visually attractive line of multi-purpose, multi-facility waste containers that are cleaner, safer, and more cost-effective than dumpsters, wheeled carts, conditioned rooms, and other legacy alternatives — while requiring a fraction of the real estate to store and service.

Every model in the Deep Collection™ lineup stores waste in a cylindrical well, the larger proportion of which is hidden underground, with only a customizable low-profile frame topped by a secure, easily accessible, self-closing lid visible above ground. This approach, pioneered by Molok in 1991 and proven in more than 45 countries in the decades since, naturally compacts waste and keeps it cool — controlling odors and substantially reducing collection frequency while eliminating the need for dedicated waste pads and expensive protective enclosures.

Plus, as Molok® containers are emptied by crane, by hand, or by pump, there’s no need for long access laneways — a major reason why a Molok Deep Collection™ station requires less than 10% of the surface area needed by forklifted dumpsters.

Collectively, these attributes mean that you can ‘plant’ Molok® containers practically anywhere you need them — in high-traffic areas, integrated into landscaping, behind obstacles, where space is tight, etc. — for flexibility, convenience, and service that alternatives just can’t match.

The Molok® Difference

Molok® Deep Collection™ containers have a long list of attributes that collectively make them unique in the world of waste storage and collection, including:

semiUnderground example with model

Low-Profile Appearance

The majority of the container is underground and out of sight, while the user lid remains at a convenient height.


Natural Compaction

The vertical well naturally compacts non-liquid waste, typically reducing its volume by 30% to 60%

keeps the user lid and
visible surfaces clean

The Future of Waste Collection, Today

We’re proud to offer a complete and highly configurable line of attractive
semi-underground containers for a wide range of waste streams
and installation environments.

Container Models

Our lineup includes general-purpose models and waste stream-specific options,
and provides capacity options from 500 to 5,000 litres (0.65 to 6.5 cubic yards).

Lifting Systems

The larger, crane-lifted models use stream-specific lifting liners to contain the waste
as it’s lifted out of the well and carried to the collection vehicle’s hopper.

Framing & Signage

Thanks to a wide variety of framing options — including a range of colors and materials, plus support for customizable wraps — waste management has never looked so good!


With a number of container models, the main well is topped with a lid designed to be safe and secure, yet easy to use. Four main lid types are available, to meet the specific needs of each installation.
