AS 4123 – The Australian Standard

 

Having set a quality benchmark in Australian waste management, SULO Australia approached Standards Australia to establish a national standard for the manufacture and use of MGBs.

From this approach AS4123 was created, providing the Australian waste and recycling industry with a clear standard that calls for independent third party product certification to guarantee product quality.

AS 4123 consists of several sections covering critical areas of an MGBs design and functionality;

  • Two wheel containers with a capacity up to 400 L for lifting devices' Dimensions and design
  • Four wheel containers with a capacity from 500 L to 1200L with flat lid(s), for trunnion and/or lifting devices' Dimensions and design
  • Four wheel containers with a capacity from 770 L to 1300 L with dome lid(s), for trunnion and/or lifting devices' Dimensions and design
  • Four wheel containers with a capacity from 750 L to 1700 L with flat lid(s), for wide trunnion or BG and/or wide comb lifting devices' Dimensions and design
  • Performance requirements and test methods
  • Health, safety and environment
  • Colours, markings and designation requirements

SULO two and four wheel MGBs are consistently tested in our NATA accredited testing facility to meet the performace requirements defined by the standard.
