Fall Cleaning May Be Better Than Spring Cleaning - 3 Reasons Why



Yard

Our yards, gardens, and landscaping transition for Winter by mostly dying off. This is the perfect time to clean it up. Clearing the dead vegetation, cut grass, and fallen leaves, will not only better the appearance of the home, but will also encourage healthy growth for Spring. And don’t forget the gutters! Any leaves stuck in the gutters could be disastrous for a home during Fall rains or Winter storms. Avoid roof leaks and erosion damage by removing all debris from the gutters. 

Such a clearing of the yard will add up in lawn bags. A dumpster will accommodate those many bags where they can be disposed of quickly instead of spread out for weeks using your local trash service. 

Now is also the time to tackle those low hanging branches or changing out mulch. With 5 different sizes of roll-off dumpsters, the perfect size is available for smaller or large jobs. 

Holidays

It’s the year to be the host for the holidays! First, get ready for the family by clearing out the garage for extra parking. Next, clear space for overnight guests by disposing of extra stuff that has turned the guest room into a junk room. 

And while you’re getting ready to be the best host for the holidays, bring down those decorations from the attic. Go through all, getting rid of non-working lights and broken items. Is it time for a new tree? Dispose of the old one in your bin. 



Back To School

With the kids back in school, bedrooms and playrooms can be tidied up and cleared out during Fall cleaning. Broken toys and old clothes can be thrown out, making the most of the child’s space. 

And they don’t stay little forever, so out with the old. This could mean toys and rooms they’ve outgrown. Cribs, toddler beds, and playhouses are common for changing out. 

Maybe they have gone off to college. Is it the time to have that home office or gym you’ve wanted? A dumpster rental will help clear out that space quickly for the redesign. Just make sure the guest room is ready for when they do come home to visit! 

Have one or all of these projects on the “To Do” list? Give us a call to get a dumpster perfect for your needs and schedule.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ROLL-OFF DUMPSTER RENTAL




Roll-off dumpsters are the easy solution for all sorts of projects. From yard cleanup and junk clean out to remodeling jobs and moves, dumpsters help the task get done quickly. With so many options, our bins are tailored to your project. So, what’s next? Ordering is simple and we can help you with all the questions you have, making your project even easier to accomplish! Here are a few of the frequently asked questions to help you get started. 

What Can We Include?


Very often we are asked if certain items can be included in the bins. Of course, hazardous materials such as oils, gasoline, or acids which include car batteries, are not allowed. Asbestos and medical waste are also not allowed. But if you have electronics, or what is referred to as e-waste, it CAN be included in your bin. Bin There Dump That also can take mattresses and grills, items that are not usually accepted by others. And as one of the very few operators that do take refrigerators, go ahead and add that too to your dumpster. We only ask that it be empty of food and loaded last by our convenient double doors in the rear of our bins. 

How Long Do We Have The Dumpster?

Our rentals include up to 10 days to help a project get done. We understand things may get in the way of project completion, such as weather or work schedules. Our 10 day rentals accommodate for such delays with more days included than other rental companies. The 10 day rental period can include 2 weekends for working individuals that turn into weekend DIY warriors. This length of time helps most of our customers with plenty of time, but you do have the option of extending the rental for a daily fee if more time is needed. 

What If We Need Another Dumpster? 

We will fit the best size dumpster for your project and budget. Sometimes though, another dumpster might be needed to finish the job. Even with the best intentions of matching your needs to the best size of dumpster, often more stuff is realized that you want to add to the bin. The ease of the process makes this happen a lot with the great feeling of a cleaned up area or home, so customers will find more stuff than they originally planned! We KNOW this freeing sense comes with our dumpsters, so if you need to order another bin, we can pick up the full one and replace with a new empty bin. The price will be the same as your first rental and include 10 more days! If the size you ordered the first time, may be too large for leftover items, let us know and we will fix you up with a smaller size. With 5 different sizes, we can help with small or larger projects. Give us a call today. Even if you are just curious about rental options, we are here to answer all of your questions.

Estate Sale Preparation




As we age, we are presented with life changes. Parents that once were caregivers, are requiring care themselves or have unfortunately passed away. This is a very difficult time filled with emotion. Being prepared for taking care of an estate will help ease the stress of the situation.

Selling Items

Although there will be very treasured mementos that will be kept, other items can be sold. There are a few ways to sell unneeded household items of an estate. If you have time to devote, a garage sale can be a way of selling the items that still have value to someone. Home decor, lawn equipment, and small appliances are great sellers in a garage sale, as well as furniture. A garage sale will take time though, from sorting and organizing through cleaning up after the sale, it can be a full time job. 
Check out awesome tips to having a successful garage sale HERE!

When you have less time, an estate sale, organized by a company, is a good option. These companies know the values of items and what will sell. Their experience and staff will also help to get the most money while providing a professional experience. 

Donation To Charity

Donating estate contents to charitable organizations can be done instead of a garage or estate sale. This is a good idea with smaller homes and is usually a quick process. 

A charitable organization can be a personal choice, such as a church designated by your loved ones or a charity that has convenient drop-off locations. Slightly worn clothes and shoes, while not doing well in garage and estate sales, are very valuable items to charities, especially the ones who help homeless individuals or struggling families. 

Roll-Off Dumpster Rental 

When the other options have been planned, a roll-off dumpster will be the best idea to clean up the rest of the estate. Donating to charity helps the less fortunate, while garage and estate sales help to recover needed expenses, but there will be items that don’t sell and items that are in such condition, they can’t be donated. These can be disposed of easily in a dumpster. And because a rental includes 10 days, you will have the time to thoroughly go through the estate’s items, such as pockets, under drawers and mattresses. 

Finally, in the case where a home will need to be sold, a roll-off dumpster helps with preparation. Old flooring, such as tile or carpet can be disposed of in a dumpster, easily helping the home to get on the market. A dumpster can be scheduled after a sale to accomplish clearing out and cleaning up at the same time, taking full advantage of the rental.

To Haul Or Not To Haul....That Is The Question




You have a remodel project or you’re wanting to clean up your home inside and out. The job is too large for your trash cans. What to do next, rent a roll off dumpster or haul the materials yourself to the local landfill? Consider the following when deciding which would be best for your project. To haul or not to haul...that is the question! 

Materials

Taking care of your project by collecting the debris and piling onto a trailer or into a truck bed might be an option for you, but some landfills do not allow all materials you might want to get rid of. Before opting for hauling it yourself, make sure your local dump accepts all materials you want to include. Some items a city landfill might not take are shingles, dirt, rock, brick, and appliances. This could result in you hauling different materials to different locations for proper disposal. Bin There Dump That accepts ALL of these materials, making it easier for you. 


Cost

It is important to determine the cost of hauling vs a roll off dumpster rental when deciding which route to go with your project. 

The dump that you decide to use for disposal of materials may charge an amount per pound of weight or it may charge a fee up to a certain weight, then money for each pound of debris over that amount. Another method used is charging by each load. The exact charge of your disposal fee will not be known until you are at the landfill and they weigh the load. 

Bin There Dump That will include the dump fee with your rental, making costs known upfront. This assists budget planning for any project. 

Convenience

Besides multiple loads of debris adding up with disposal fees, fuel will also be used. Along with the costs, is the time spent. One 10 yd dumpster rental could equal up to 4 pickup loads, saving you multiple trips to the landfill. And if the closest dump isn’t actually close, the cost of transporting it yourself will be much more than with a roll off dumpster. 
 
The convenience of a roll off dumpster also includes no interruption of the project due to having to haul off and empty truck or trailer before starting again. 

Depending on your project size, and transportation options available, a roll off dumpster can be the smartest decision with cost and convenience. Call us today to price your project!

The BEST Tips For Easy Dumpster Rental



There are many reasons to rent a roll-off dumpster from small cleanups and remodels, to new construction. Whether there is a need because of moving or just to dispose of unused items, a dumpster makes each project go more smoothly. These are the tips for making the rental go smoothly as well.

 Research Company Reviews
 
Dumpster rental companies, like most businesses, are rated and reviewed on many online sites. These reviews can be found during Google searches, on trusted service sharing sites such as Angie’s List, and even on social media sites like Facebook.

First, go beyond the rating and read the reviews. It’s important to see what customers shared about the experience. Next, visit other review sites to make sure there is consistency. Does the Google rating mirror the Facebook rating? 

If you don’t have friends or family with recommendations, online reviews can be a terrific resource for information and peace of mind! 

Ask What The Price Includes

No one appreciates unwelcome surprises. The goal is to make your project easy! When ordering, ask if delivery, pick up, and taxes are included. What is the dump fee? Is it included in the rate or is it extra? How many days are included? Knowing what you have as contents will also help to determine an upfront rate with no surprises later. 
 
Know What Is Allowed

By discussing your dumpster needs with the company, you will learn what is allowed and what isn’t allowed to dump. Of course, hazardous materials are not allowed. But ask if you have any concerns about what you want to dispose. You might be surprised what IS allowed, like e-waste! 

Dumpsters are the convenient way to get rid of unwanted junk, building materials, etc. The dumpsters are taken to city dumps and must be transported safely as to not hurt any other motorists. It is important to discuss this process with the company, avoiding any unsafe overfills. 

Plan Dumpster Location

 And there is nothing easier than keeping on schedule by arriving to a bin at your home or job site, all ready to go! Plan this easily with knowing the perfect spot for your dumpster. Will you need it by the garage or even more specifically, a particular side of the driveway? Are there gate codes to your neighborhood or is there a carport? Mentioning these during your ordering will help the delivery expert in placing your bin perfectly.

4 Times A Dumpster Is A Great Idea For A Neighborhood




Many subdivisions hold neighborhood-wide events. These events range from entertainment to beautification. Homeowners come together as neighbors or with a neighborhood association to fully appreciate their community. Each of these events benefit from the use of dumpsters.

Neighborhood Garage Sales

More and more subdivisions are holding neighborhood garage sales. These have turned into helpful ‘once or twice a year’ cleanouts for homeowners. Of course the goal is to get rid of the items that are difficult to dispose of without compensation, but there is ALWAYS something left over that didn’t sell. A roll-off dumpster placed in a common area is a perfect way for homeowners to toss those leftovers quickly.

Common Areas

Care for a subdivision’s common areas is the responsibility of homeowners once the developer leaves. This is often organized by a neighborhood or homeowner’s association. The common areas include entrance, greenbelts, walkways, and sometimes parks and ponds. Flowers, trees, grass, and fencing are just some of the things that require upkeep. Your neighborhood might ask for volunteers to plant annual flowers or do tree trimming to keep dues low for all. This annual or semi annual occasion will be completed faster with a rental dumpster for debris. For more ease, several smaller bins in different locations will be convenient for larger neighborhoods with several common areas.





Big Trash Day

Many of our Oklahoma cities offer Big Trash Pick Up once a year. However, there are towns that do not include this service. Neighborhood associations could take this opportunity of sharing the cost of a dumpster when big trash collection isn’t an option. This is something that could be scheduled alongside the common area maintenance, making the most use of the dumpsters.

Events

Neighborhood events aren’t always upkeep. Celebrations, such as holidays or the change of season, bring about reasons to gather around the park or pond with other homeowners and families. Egg hunts, picnics, and firework shows are just a few events that bring neighbors together. These type of events produce a large amount of debris that is too much for a few homeowners’ trash cans. Having a small bin for disposing trash keeps unwanted litter from blowing around. Also the dumpster can be picked up quickly to avoid unwanted pests.

All of these neighborhood events can be fun and stress-free when you leave the trash to us!
