A 4x4 lag screwed to 2x3, with a welded heavy duty door hinge screwed to the top. Lifted and transported both garbage wheelers, one was 147#. Not fancy as some but works perfectly.

Your holding your phone sideways for pic taking. 

What is the purpose of the hinge?  How do you keep the container on the lifting piece?

Another advantage of country living.  Cats eat all the food scraps daily.  What is not recycled is burned and that is not very much, about a once a week deal.

The hinge is welded in a position to lif the can. I'll post a pic shortly.

 

And I'm not holding the camera sideways, I don't care which way I hold, for the last couple of months on this forum only, pictures are sideways.

On my Galaxy Note 4, I HAVE to hold it sideways for correct pix align. Must be correct way too, as other way goes bad. I'm used to it now, just automatic to turn it when doing any picture.  My can has a big rod or pipe thru the lift side that the truck/machine can grab and lift it to dump. So far no problem rolling on it's wheels, but might need something in future years. By then will have wheel-chair ramp to the porch and can drive the tractor up to it to hook on, heh!

I have bouts of severe sciatica, walking in a twist pulling the cans sometimes irritates it, plus it's a 200' walk, up hill both ways in the snow and -5°, every Thursday.
