    Trash can hitch mount - images and video

    Trash can hitch mount. Is the entire weight of the bin supported by its crossbar? Is that OK?

    2:03 video:

    These are generally available in single or double hitch options. Another strategy is to link multiple bins in series; not sure if this is the best option.

    The cross bar is what is used by the compactor trucks to dump the bins so I would imagine it is designed for the weight. Obviously the bin being made of plastic you wouldn't want to fill it with dirt and try hauling it tat way but I am sure some have tried.
    My trash bin is a 4.5cu yard steel dumpster I could have gotten a 1 yard plastic bin but then I would have had to roll it out every trash day then roll it back. the cost difference was only 15 dollars different per month. so for 59.00 a month it is fine by me to provide folks who live a couple miles away a place they can dump their trash instead or burning it and possibly starting a fire
