    i agree those look better, but isn't it about the bottomline. plywood is cheap, then come apart to store easy.

    How much does something like that cost?

    The municipality I live in has those same boxes. Big pain in the a$$. They end up painting the every 2 or 3 years to keep looking nice. Very difficult to put on truck and take off. They like the simplicity of my 2x12's, and I have to dump less often, the box has to fit inside bed and not real tall.

    I'd say if you're willing to shell out the money than go for it. A little paint makes plywood look pretty good , and when we're done with cleanups we can disassemble the box and lean it against the wall.
