Paterson Truckers Invent Dumpster Diaper

PATERSON, N.J. — Paterson business owner Kevin Goldstein knew he had a problem with leaking dumpsters and found his solution in a garment more commonly associated with babies.

“Having a long history in the waste management related business of demolition, our trucks haul demolition debris from job sites, traversing hundreds of miles of roadways on a daily basis," Goldstein said. "Over the years, our office would receive countless telephone calls from irate drivers who would complain that the particles of debris escaping from the tailgates of our trucks had struck their vehicles cracking their windshields and chipping their paint."

Enter the Dumpster Diaper ; a tarping system shaped to specifically cover and wrap around the rear lower tailgate portion of a truck and attaches to the with a series of magnets sewn into the edges. The "diaper" prevents debris from leaking out of dumpsters which can cause damage to trailing vehicles.

Goldstein and his partners made a makeshift tarp with magnets and attached it to one of their trucks. The complaints stopped immediately.

Now the Dumpster Diaper is patented and shipping nationwide.

"Because ours is an organization oriented in responsibility, we regularly found ourselves reimbursing many windshield replacements and filing too many insurance claims to count," Goldstein said. "As a result of the high volume and extensive costs associated with these occurrences, we knew there had to be a better way.”
