What Size Dumpster Should I Get?




Bin There Dump That, in the OKC Metro, has 5 different sized dumpsters available. The 4 yard, 6 yard, 10 yard, 14 yard, and 20 yard dumpsters are perfect for small to large jobs. 

Smaller Dumpsters

Our roll-off dumpsters come in many different sizes. They are categorized by volume capacity. The 4 yard will hold 4 cubic yards of debris. To help visualize 4 cubic yards, there are other ways to measure. Many times, a 4 yard bin is used for small jobs that have debris that can be put in a wheelbarrow and then dumped in the dumpster. Some of this debris includes dirt, concrete, and tile from floors and showers. Depending on the size of wheelbarrow, the 4 yard dumpster can hold 36 to 56 wheelbarrows full of debris. If it is a 2 cubic yard wheelbarrow, then you can fit 56 full loads into a 4 yard dumpster. If a larger 3 cubic yard wheelbarrow is used, then the loads decrease to 36. 

As with the 4 yard dumpster, the 6 yard bin has a small footprint, not taking up much space, and is perfect for smaller jobs or heavy materials. The 6 yard is available for dirt, concrete, and brick disposal, as well as small renovations such as a bathroom remodel. 

Midsize Dumpster

Our midsize 10 yard bin is a nice step up in dumpster size for its many possible uses. This dumpster is 10 feet long, 7 feet wide, and 4 feet high. As with all Bin There Dump That bins, it is small enough to fit in a parking spot. But this bin with its 90 degree construction, is versatile for many projects. This bin is popular for small cleanouts, such as a single car garage cleanout. It is also used before and after moves, giving plenty of room for boxes, packing material, and those smaller household items. 


The 10 yard dumpster is the perfect size for kitchen remodels or small deck teardowns. The 10 yard bin can also be used for roof jobs, depending on the amount of shingles. This is typically a single layer roof of a smaller home, or around 25 squares of asphalt shingles. If there are more squares, you will need a 14 yard bin or a combination of bins. 

Larger Dumpsters 

Larger roof jobs need a larger bin for more shingles. The 14 yard bin can accommodate around 35 squares of shingles. We can help you with your roof job, providing the best size or even a combination of sizes, to get the job done quickly. Let us know the amount of squares, how many layers, or square footage of the structure, and we will help you with the most cost effective choice. 

The 14 yd bin is also good with larger cleanouts, such as several rooms. It is also a popular choice for remodels and renovations. If you are removing carpet in several rooms to replace with wood, a 14 yard dumpster is good for several, average sized rooms. 


If you have a larger renovation, such as the whole home, or if you need to replace carpet in a larger home of 3000 square feet or more, Bin There Dump That has a 20 yard dumpster. Our largest bin is used for double garage cleanouts, furniture disposal, and perfect for remodeling projects. 

It can be difficult to decide which bin to rent, but whether you have rented before, or never have rented a dumpster, Bin There Dump That can help you with the perfect size.

Renting A Dumpster To Sell Your Home Faster




Rarely do we stay in one home for our lifetime. More often, we change homes several times along the way, moving closer to jobs, buying bigger homes for a growing family, and building that dream home. When this transition involves the selling of your home, a roll-off dumpster rental will help the home to sell faster. 

Rent a Dumpster to Clear Out Clutter

It doesn’t take long to acquire a bunch of stuff, especially when you are a homeowner. Even if the stay was a short term one, home ownership comes with many needs...items to make repairs, items to fill space, items that are used for decoration. Unfortunately, without realizing and quicker than we plan, these items turn into clutter. And one of the first things your Realtor will tell you is to clear the clutter so potential buyers can imagine their life in your home. 

This clearing of clutter will help your home sell faster. But, the task seems overwhelming. Where to start? What to do? First, you must identify your clutter. There are different types, read about them here


Once you have identified the different types of clutter, call Bin There Dump That OKC to schedule your dumpster. The quick ordering process (ordering online link under ordering process) and fast delivery will help you prepare your home to be on the market. 

Dumpsters Are Great For Repairs

The Bin There Dump That dumpster can then also be used for any debris leftover from repairs. Maintaining a home comes with the responsibility of repairing that home and its parts. Some repairs need immediate attention, such as broken plumbing. Other repairs will need attention to sell your home faster. That window that wasn’t sealed properly and resulted in condensation between panes will need replacing. And those broken fence pickets should be repaired. Some repairs may even be required because of newer regulations. Your Realtor will help to identify parts of the home not in compliance. 

Renting a Dumpster Can Help Prepare For Next Home

Finally, your roll-off dumpster can be used for discarding items you don’t want to take with you to the new home. You used the bin to help your home sell faster, now it’s time to move into your next home FAST! 

If you are downsizing, a dumpster is perfect for getting rid of the extra furniture and knick knacks. And if you aren’t downsizing, a new home might be the time for a new style. The bedding and small items, such as area rugs, will need updating for the new home. 


From preparing for selling to moving out, a dumpster will help speed up the process.

Christmas Destinations In Oklahoma




Do you have the tradition of watching ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ this time of year? Did you know the film was shot during a heat wave? It’s one of the most iconic Christmas films, yet the snow was not even real. We often have the same situation in Oklahoma with no snow during the holidays. But, Oklahoma does magically transform into a winter wonderland each year at Christmas time with beautiful decorations and winter activities. Here are some close destinations you can visit in our state this holiday season. Your Christmas town is just a short drive away! 

Guthrie

Just north of Edmond is the historical gem of Guthrie where the preservation of an era is unmatched. From the town’s American Craftsman and Victorian style homes to the date-stamped downtown buildings, this town is a welcomed break from the everyday sights of the OKC metro. 

This month, make the short trip for Guthrie’s Territorial Christmas. One weekend is set for the tour of decorated homes and both weekends will include the famous Victorian walks, where the residents are in period costume. The strolls downtown also include live scenes in shop windows. Event scheduling can be found here https://www.guthriesterritorialchristmas.com/

Claremore

December 7th is the day to visit Claremore for their Christmas celebrations. Enjoy a parade in downtown from 5:30 to 7:00, then experience Will’s Country Christmas at Will Roger’s birthplace ranch. 

And don’t forget to shop for the people in your life with the unique selections in the quaint downtown shops. 

Kingfisher

Just a 40 minute drive, Kingfisher is northwest of the OKC metro. This town boasts one of the most popular light displays for visitors. The free event can be visited every night through December 24. A night can be made of walking through over 60 light displays and 200 lit trees. Grab a hot chocolate and a bite from a food truck to take along with you on your stroll. Then take a photo on the swinging bridge while keeping an out for Santa who is known to make appearances! 

Oklahoma City Metro

And don’t forget the metro areas for Christmas fun. The OKC downtown is always a favorite with snow tubing and the Devon ice rink. Edmond has beautiful twinkling displays at Mitch Park, as well right next to the Bin There Dump That office at 3000 N. Kelly a beautiful walk-thru display has been created by Northwest Lawn Maintenance. And Yukon’s drive-through display brings visitors from all over.

How To Increase Your Rental Income After Making These Improvements




Owning rental property can be a rewarding experience by helping people when they are not ready to buy their own home. And the smartest investments can produce significant income! There will come a point however, when your property needs improvement to stay competitive with the higher rental rates. Try these small improvements to increase the monthly rate on your rental property. 

Curb Appeal

Attract those potential renters by improving the outside appearance! Your best renters are the ones who care about the property’s appearance and what shape it’s in. If you purchased an older property or have owned for many years, the landscaping will benefit from a small overhaul.

The best thing about improving the landscaping is you can do so with a current tenant and there is no loss of income. Once you and your tenant agree on a convenient time for the least disturbance, rent one of our smaller bins to help with your debris. Include in your dumpster...old mulch, any dead or crowded bushes, and overgrown tree branches. 

After you clean up the yard and landscaping, look over the home for wood or siding that needs to be replaced. Oklahoma storms can damage these parts of the property. Also, a metal mailbox and guttering can sustain damage from hail. Add the dented mailbox and guttering to the same dumpster, maximizing your bin rental. 

On The Inside

Rental property owners know higher rents come from desirable properties that are in demand. Small updates can make properties as desirable as competing properties that are newer. 

One improvement should be updating the floor surfaces. Renters are wanting ease in care and function-friendly. The popular choices are wood or wood-like laminates and also tile. Carpet may be the cheaper expense upfront, but choosing a more durable flooring will not require replacement with every new tenant, making it an investment. Also, wood and tile floors are more present than ever in new builds and renters will pay more for this upgrade. 

When upgrading or replacing flooring, rent a roll-off dumpster to dispose of the old carpet and padding. If the baseboards are going to be replaced to match new floor’s height and style, add the old wood to the dumpster also. We have the perfect size bin to accommodate both the flooring and baseboards. 


Finally, if your property is up to date with required maintenance and repair, it is the perfect tine to invest in updating the items in the home that will ‘date’ its appearance. Replacing old cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms will improve the appearance of your rental. New cabinets, drawers, and flooring will refresh the entire home. Our larger bin will then be the perfect choice to handle disposal of all the old flooring, baseboards, and cabinets. 

Because these inside updates have to be done between renters, a dumpster will help the update go smoothly with the quickest disposal of old materials and packaging. The goal is to update as quickly as possible, moving the next tenants in and once again collecting rent. 

When you are ready to increase your rental rate by improving your property, Bin There Dump That will help you with your dumpster needs.

Dumpster Rental Vs. Removal Service




There are many situations when what we need to get rid of will not fit in our trash bins. We accumulate ‘stuff’ throughout the years that can fill closets, attics, and the garage. We use ‘stuff’ until it cannot be used anymore and is just taking up space. We also improve our home by investing in remodeling and repairs. All of these situations result in debris that needs to be disposed. There are a couple of options to consider for quick disposal, dumpster rental or removal service. Let’s discuss both services and which best meets your needs for your project! 

Cost of Dumpster Rental Vs. Removal Service

Everyone likes a good deal! Knowing there are options for getting rid of trash will have people comparing the price of each service. A lesser quote will be attractive, but it is important that the total be compared instead. A dumpster rental service will quote a price for the rental, delivery, pick up, tax, and disposal fees. When inquiring a quote for a removal service, make sure to have removal service visit and quote the price BEFORE doing the work. Most removal services calculate a price by how many employees they use to do the job, their hourly rate, and how many loads will need to be disposed. How many loads will depend on how smart they pack the items. Because of this, a price given on a website or quoted over the phone should be backed up by an in-person quote. 

Time of Service

Both dumpster rental and a removal service will have the debris moved quickly. If you have not collected the items to be removed and moved them to a central location, you will have to be available to direct a removal service to each item. This time will add up with hourly rates. Our dumpster rental includes 10 days to collect those items onyour schedule and at your pace. 

Deciding By Project

The best deciding factor may be the type of job, or what needs to be removed. If you have one appliance that cannot be repaired, a removal service could be the best option with price. Junk removal services may be best with the single, large items such as the removal of hot tubs or pianos.  When there are many items from cleaning out storage areas, or debris from remodeling, a dumpster rental will be more cost effective. 

Liability

After evaluating the type of job and comparing cost of each service, liability must be considered. Because the debris is on your property, ask for the removal service to provide current insurance that fully covers their employees. 

If you have the type of project that will benefit with the convenience of a dumpster roll-off rental, insist that the dumpster rollers and front be placed on protective boards, preventing any scratching on a driveway. 

Both removal service and dumpster rental are options when you are unable to fit in your weekly trash or do not have a vehicle to haul. Your best option can be decided with a little preparation in comparing those options. When comparing, give us a call. We have 5 different sizes of dumpsters and we will help you find the perfect size for your project.
