What Size Of Dumpster Do I Need?


 

The most difficult decision about a home project or cleanout is not WHETHER you need a dumpster, it is what SIZE is needed. Bin There Dump That has several sizes to facilitate your projects.

 

Home Cleanout

 

There are many times a dumpster can be used for cleaning out your home. From garage and attic clearing to moving, a dumpster quickly clears out space. When needing to dispose of items that your normal trash service can’t handle, call Bin There Dump That for a perfect sized dumpster. We will suggest a few different sizes to make sure you get the right size for your project. Starting at the 10 yd, suggested for a single car garage cleanout, and up to the 14 yd and 20 yd that will accommodate several rooms and furniture.

 

Home Cleanup

 

The cleanup of a home is different from a cleanout. This typically means leftover junk from a tenant or previous homeowner and yard debris, such as tree limbs. Our larger bins, such as the 14 yard and 20 yard will help tremendously when faced with large tree limbs and other items in the yard or shed. Because your city or town will more than likely not take bulk trash conveniently or even at all, Bin There Dump That is the perfect solution in cleaning up the outside of your home.

 

Renovation/Remodeling

 

Your home is an investment and maintaining its highest value is important. Renovation and/or remodeling may be needed in order to keep your home at its best! Some renovation examples are replacing windows or worn out flooring and outdated systems such as air conditioning. Remodeling can be updating the kitchen or bathroom. Bin There Dump That specializes in dumpsters for home use. Not only do we have a 6 yard for a bathroom remodel, we have a 10 yard for a kitchen remodel and our larger sizes for renovations that go beyond one room. AND, with our 100% board protection, you can be assured that the dumpster will not damage your driveway.

 

Roof

 

Most of our customers and contractors calling for 20 yard bins are pleasantly surprised when our Dumpster Consultant tells them we can handle most of their roof jobs with a 10 yard or 14 yard bin. These compact bins that are Residential Friendly, can be snug up to the home for a quick roof replacement, allowing for shingles to be tossed right in the dumpster. And, as an added protection, we will sweep for nails when picking up the dumpster.

 

Concrete/Dirt/Brick

 

The other heavy materials besides shingles, are dirt, rock, concrete, and brick. Bin There Dump That’s fleet of dumpsters includes smaller dumpster sizes, such as the 6 yd for these type of jobs. Our smaller sizes can be filled to the top with this material, while allowing our Residential Friendly trucks to lift the contents. Bin There Dump That knows there are many different types of projects from big to small cleanouts, and small to heavy loads, that’s why we have several different dumpster sizes to choose for your project. Give us a call and we will help you with the perfect size.

The 5 Day Declutter Challenge



Let’s face it, with the change of the season comes the desire or need to clean, organize, declutter, and even change the look of our homes. The holiday season is right around the corner, the time for family gatherings and celebrations. Before that time arrives, do our 5 Day Declutter Challenge!

 

Day One - Planning

 

First, things first. Have a plan. Will you be needing someone to assist in moving furniture or have you been storing items for a family member or friend? Once you have them scheduled for their help, give Bin There Dump That a call to schedule your dumpster. The dumpster can be there at the beginning of your challenge to help it go smoothly. Next, will you be donating any items? Will those organizations pick up or will you need to drop off? Today is also the day you will need to purchase any organization materials, such as storage containers.  

 

Day Two - Closets and Bathrooms

 

Start small. Well, relatively speaking. Your smallest areas may be your most disguised. Closets and bathroom cabinets can hide a lot of clutter. Day Two should be dedicated to these areas.

 

Bathrooms are pretty simple when it comes to decluttering. The goal with bathrooms is to rid them of any expired items and all broken/unusable items. Closets are usually more involved. Closets can get so packed that you will need to pull out stuff to get to the other items. That is a sure sign decluttering needs to be done. With closets, you will need to decide what items will still need storing away and what items it is time to throw out or donate. A good standard with clothing is... if the clothing does not fit anymore, is in need of repair/soiled, or you have not worn in 2 years, it is time to donate or throw away. Other items in closets can be sorted along those standards with keepsakes in safe storage, unusable items in the dumpster, and forgotten items that are no longer used, donated. 

 

Day Three - Bedrooms

 

Bedrooms will be much easier once you have tackled the closets. With bedrooms, other storage places, such as dressers and nightstands can be done on Day Three. Have trash bags ready to quickly collect old and unwanted items for disposing in the dumpster. And don’t forget under the bed! That old laptop that is out of date can be finally thrown away because Bin There Dump That will take all e-waste. Once these areas are cleared, decide if any decoration or furniture needs to be removed. Just 2 more days in the challenge and you will be done!

 

Day Four - Attic and Garage

 

Day Four is for the attic and garage. Both these places can end up being a storage place for items that are in need of repair or donation. Now is the time to dispose of that broken weed eater and lawn chair. And depending on the time of year, it could be a good time to go through seasonal items that you use annually.

 

Day Five - Kitchen and Living Areas

 

The final day of your Declutter Challenge is the kitchen and other living areas. Again, the challenge with clutter is deciding whether it is worth keeping. Do you have an extra coffee maker that is in a cabinet, two blenders? These decisions whether to store away for future use or to clear out space is a personal one. Maybe you have cleared out space elsewhere during the challenge. Or maybe it is time to finally let it go. It will be such a relief when all the lids match their containers once again!

 


And why not take advantage of your Declutter Challenge by disposing of old shower curtains, bedding, pillows, and drapes. Often these can collect harmful dust. Replacing at this time will bring a new look and healthier home.

 

You’re done! In just 5 days. Glad we could help!

Help! My Garage Is Full Of Stuff, What Do I Do?


 

Most Americans that own homes with garages use that space for storage and park outside of them. It is estimated that only 20-30% of garages are used for vehicles. With the average garage being a double, this is around 450 square feet of space that is occupied by ‘stuff’ that is not used daily. While it is easy and convenient to use the garage, eventually the space can become unsafe. And while some items must be stored in a garage, now is the time to go through the items that are continuously being overlooked and piling up.

 

First Step

 

Call Bin There Dump That and we will bring out a dumpster that will be placed in your driveway. The dumpster sits on a board system so the driveway is fully protected. Also, the dumpster has double doors that open to your garage, making it a breeze to walk in heavy items or toss others. Having your dumpster there from Day 1 will help the sorting and the entire project go much quicker.   

 

Step Two

 

The toughest part of cleaning out a garage is deciding what stays and what goes. It is easy to accumulate items year over year which makes it difficult to go through. Sorting these items is the next step in clearing out your garage space. There are three groups you can use to help sort through the clutter. First, is the item something you will use in the future? Is the item broken? Could the item be used by someone else? With these answers, you can decide if you want to place in the keep group, toss group, or donate group. 

 


Once you have established which items go to which group, you can start to clear out the garage. The roll-off dumpster just outside the garage will be handy in clearing out the stuff you will be throwing away. Once you have cleared out the items you need to toss, collect the donations for giving away.

 

Final Step

 

Finally, after disposing of unusable and broken debris in the dumpster and giving away donated items, the goal is to organize your garage for the stuff you are keeping. A clear garage is a safer garage. It is time to install shelving and hooks to store items up off the ground, leaving the area safe for walking and perfect for parking. Before finishing up, do a final walk-through of items to make sure everything is visible and organized. If you pack it away, you will most likely forget about it. Take advantage of the Bin There Dump Dump That dumpster to eliminate future clutter.

Comparing Dumpster Rental Companies


 You have decided it’s time to clean out the attic or do a kitchen remodel. You will have debris to dispose of and know the quickest way is to rent a roll-off dumpster, but you have never rented a dumpster before. Where to start? 

 

LOCAL, LOCAL, LOCAL

 

Finding the right dumpster company is your first step in accomplishing your project. Not all are the same. From location to dumpster size, dumpster companies can vary. First, is the dumpster company local and in your area? A local dumpster company can facilitate your project faster than an out-of-state broker. The local company will know the area and you will be able to discuss your project with them.

 

The advantages of a local company don’t stop there. A local company is not a 3rd party and will charge only for the dumpster rental service. A 3rd party, that is out-of-state, will charge extra for hiring a local dumpster company to fulfill the order. If you have never ordered a dumpster, your first question is to ask if they are local. When searching for dumpster rental companies online, check to see if their office is a true location. Many times, you will see a dumpster company on the road while driving. These are the companies to remember to call.

 

Dumpster Design

 

Just as dumpster companies are different, so are dumpster designs. You want to consider your project and site before ordering a dumpster. Will the dumpster need to be on a driveway? Will the contents be heavier material, such as concrete or shingles? Will there be bulky items, such as furniture?

 

Roll-off dumpsters come in many sizes AND shapes. Bin There Dump That dumpsters range from small to large and accommodate small concrete removal to home cleanouts. Our bins are shaped at 90 degree angles, utilizing every bit of the dumpster, while other dumpsters taper down, becoming smaller at the bottom. Especially with larger items, a 90 degree angle is best with optimizing space.

 

Dumpster Services

 

Finally, what services are offered to make the dumpster rental the quickest and safest for your project? In addition to a company helping you with your project by knowing the best size dumpster, you should be assured it will be there when you need it. Ask what is the availability of their dumpsters and what is the process when picking up. Do they offer same-day or next-day delivery?

 

Also, ask how they will protect your driveway. Bin There Dump That will provide COMPLETE board protection with every dumpster, at no extra charge, 100% of the time. These boards will make it to where the rollers do not make contact with the concrete and fully protect your investment. Avoid costly damage by hiring a dumpster company who cares about your home and/or business.

 

All dumpster companies are not the same.


Knowing what to ask or where to turn will help you with your first-time dumpster rental. Call Bin There Dump That and we will be happy to discuss your project needs.

Dumpster Projects For May


 

May is a busy time. Besides school ending for the year for many, a bunch of moves take place at this time. In fact, 80% of moves happen between April and September, with June and July being peak time. That means along with Spring, major projects arise. A dumpster rental can help facilitate those projects, making them run smoothly and end quickly. 

 

Selling The Home/Moving

 

May is a popular month for selling homes. Moving is easier when the kids are out of school. This month is used for preparing the home to be placed on the market. With a roll-off dumpster, a quick clearing of unused clutter can be easily accomplished by discarding the items in the bin. The bins have double rear doors that create a walk-in environment that aids in heavy items being placed into the dumpster. From furniture to appliances and e-waste, a dumpster can rid the broken and unusable items and make the home appear at its best for potential buyers. And with our board protection system, the dumpster will not make contact with the driveway, fully protecting the concrete from any scratches. This will keep your home at its top value.

 


Once the home sells and it’s time to move, a dumpster will be your best friend in discarding boxes and the items that you have decided not to keep. Roll-off dumpsters help with bulky items that cannot fit in the city’s utility cart and the large amounts that cannot be hauled away quickly.

 

Yard Maintenance/Spring Cleaning

 

Even if you do not have a move planned in the near future, Spring is the perfect time to declutter and get the yard ready for the summer months. May brings warmer weather but it also brings storms. Now is the time to clean out your garage so vehicles can be parked inside to protect them from costly damage. The old treadmill that no longer works, the old boxes of clothes that never sold in the garage sale can be thrown into the dumpster.


While you have the dumpster for Spring cleaning of the home and garage/attic, take advantage by utilizing it for yard debris and improving your landscaping. Any leaves and old mulch can be cleared out of the yard and gutters during May cleanup. Also, add the grass clippings from that first Spring mow.

 

Neighborhood Cleanup/Garage Sales

 

May is also a good time to hold garage sales and neighborhood cleanups. Bins can be rented through the HOA and shared by homeowners. With a neighborhood rental, that one item that keeps getting missed can be added to the neighborhood’s roll-off dumpster. Plus, after a neighborhood-wide garage sale, leftover unsold items can be thrown away, completing the job.

 

And neighborhood common areas can be quickly cleaned up over a weekend with volunteers and a dumpster. Fallen tree branches, broken park equipment, and trash can be thrown out to be ready for summer use.

 

Take advantage of the warmer weather and call Bin There Dump That today for your dumpster rental.

A Clean Attic Is A Safe Attic


 

An attic is a convenient location for storage of unused items. This is a space that however, goes often unnoticed. The attic can be used for storage, but it also contains vital materials and parts that aid in the function of your home. Keeping your attic organized will reduce hazards and increase the efficiency of your home.

 

Increasing Safety And Efficiency

 

The convenience of an attic is having a storage area without having to rent out a spot, off site. Many items, such as keepsakes and unused furniture are stored out of the way in the attic, freeing up valuable living space. It is important to maintain your attic space for the transfer and storage of these items. A good rule of thumb is to keep a clear walking path and to make sure items do not block the attic entry. With ease of access, maintaining the safety of your attic will be easier. And it is always best to distribute storage evenly so that your attic floor can withstand the weight.

 

Reducing Fire Risk

 

Whenever you want to store items, or you need to access the attic for maintenance, you should take a look around or hire a professional to check the electrical wiring. Animals may access the attic and chew on wires. This hazard can cause a fire. To reduce this danger, a thorough check of your attic should occur every few months. Another risk for fire can be leaks from the roof. Leaks may only go as far as your attic but that rain can also be an electrical hazard.

 

Maintaining Your Investment

 

Your attic can store vital equipment/materials for the functioning of your home. This equipment and material should be clear of any junk. When removing the extra items, be sure to check the equipment for operation. Also, check the insulation every year to notice areas that need more coverage for lower energy consumption.

 

And it is also important to store items not only safely, but smartly. Keepsakes should be transferred from any cardboard boxes and stored away in rubber or plastic bins. Keepsakes will be further protected from the elements in bins rather than cardboard boxes that can get damaged from pests and the elements.

 

Spring is a great time to clean the attic out and organize it for safety! Give Bin There Dump That a call and we will help you with the perfect size for your job.
