5 Simple Ways To Celebrate Earth Day 4/22/18

1. BYO Grocery Bags 
Making the effort to put reusable shopping bags in your car could start a new habit that would reduce the use of plastic bags. There are so many nifty bags that fold up to a tiny tiny size, making earth-friendly shopping easy and convenient. 

2. Recycle E-Waste
Slowly but surely, recycling has become available in just about every city and town. But what about the stuff that can't go in the recycling bin? The EPA and other agencies suggest that electronic waste (aka e-waste) is the fastest growing waste stream in the world. Chances are, you've got an outdated electronic appliance gathering dust somewhere in your house right now, and your neighbors probably do too. Make sure these gadgets end up properly recycled instead of taking up space or leaching toxins in a landfill.  *As a value added service, these items can be recycled into one of our rentals at a slight cost.

3. Go Paper-less 
Did you know that switching all of your bills to e-bill and online invoices can save millions of trees every single year? It's true! And it's not just the use of paper that's bad for the environment. There are the other consumables that go along with it, like ink. Production of ink uses fossil fuels, and most inks contain chemicals and other substances that are harmful to our environment. 

4. Stop drinking bottled water 
Even with recycling efforts, it is said that 6 out of 7 plastic bottles consumed in the US are sent somewhere far and out of sight. In turn, the chemicals from the bottles might get into soils and watersheds, making them toxic and hazardous. There is nothing healthier or you, your wallet, and the planet than filtered tap water in a reusable bottle. 

5. Get Outside 
Earth Day is about enjoying and taking care of the planet, so why spend it inside, glued to a screen? Go for a hike, take a nature walk with your kids, plan a picnic in the park, or a game of kickball with your buddies. Remember how great it feels to have the wind in your hair and the sun on your face! Reconnecting with nature is the best way to remind yourself why we’re fighting so hard to protect it.

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than with one of our residential friendly clean & green bins! They are great when tackling a home clean out, renovation project, or even a yard clean up. Whatever the project at hand is, you'll be happy to know that we recycle all materials at local transfer station facilities.

Is It Time To Throw It Out? 5 Questions To Ask Yourself

The accumulation of items in a home can build over the years. When you're ready to do a clean out of your home, these 5 questions will help you decide if it's time to get rid of an item.

Are You Paying To Store It? 

To create more space, we sometimes choose to organize our homes by saving unused items at local self storage facilities. Now is the time to evaluate if the rental for storing these items is cost effective. Storage rental vs. current value of an item can help you determine if it's time to throw it out. 

Is It Usable?

On occasion we put stuff aside that might be broken, for later repair. Often, too much time has passed that even the part needed to fix the item, is no longer available to do the actual repair. But, a good guideline to go by with broken items is if you have done without it for a year, you're less likely to miss it when thrown away. 

Have You Bought Another One? 

How many times have we gone to the grocery store and bought eggs only to notice that we already had them? The same can happen with household items. Take inventory! This is the perfect way to eliminate any extras you might have, making for a simple 
clear out and saving you money in the long run. 

What Condition Is It In?

Even if it's not broken, condition can be a factor in determining worth. Has it lost all value to where you can't even resell it? Maybe the condition of the item is even dangerous. Does it have a loose or damaged cord? It might still work, but it's safer to get rid of all items that may be faulty or unsafe. 

Do You Remember Why You Have It? 

It happens, we come across something stowed away in a garage, closet, attic, or even a drawer and don't know what it does or why we even have it. If it has been out of sight and you don't know its purpose, when you come across it while clearing out stuff, it should go.

Once you've gone through your home with these questions, Bin There Dump That has the perfect bin for every size clean out. Our smaller bins assist with jobs of odds and ends. There are also 15 yd and 20 yd bins that will accommodate bulkier items such as appliances and furniture. Just give us a call or contact us online, and our Dumpster Consultants can help you determine the perfect bin for your project.

Room By Room Clean Out Guide by Bin There Dump That

Christmas has come and gone and a new year is here! More often than not, at the end of the year, we wind up with more stuff. Now is the ideal time to clear space. Bin There Dump That is here to help you with a room by room clean out.

Kitchen and Bathrooms

Some of the most popular gifts given are the least popular in garage sales. According to, the wonderful bath products you received in your stocking are the least likely to resell. Clearing out space in your bathroom for the new products is easy by tossing expired ones.

Reader’s Digest says the same goes in the kitchen. Those non-stick pots and pans are warned against in buying secondhand because of the coating. It’s safer to discard of these to create space for the new cookware.

Bedrooms and Closets

It is found that parents spend the most on their kids at Christmas, so it’s time to clear out the broken and heavily used toys in their bedrooms.

Also, the Huffington Post reported the average American throws out 65 lbs. of clothing each year. This is mainly due to ripped clothing, undergarments and worn out shoes not reselling well. One of your biggest space makers can be your closet when you go through your clothing. And don’t forget the linen closet! It’s a great time to get rid of old towels and bedding.

Garage and Attic

Storage space can fill up fast. Before stowing away the holiday decorations, go through all and dispose of items no longer working, like lighting strands. Have a deer that used to light up but can’t fit in your trash? Add that too!

Other items that are mentioned not to buy at garage sales, are certain items for infants. The car seat that you have stored in your attic or garage could be considered unsafe by today’s standards and you would do best by disposing of it with Bin There Dump That.

Let the specialists in bulky and difficult disposal items help you begin the year with a productive room by room clean out. We thank you for your business and look forward to anther year of tackling projects together!

What Size Bin Do I Need For My Project?

They say size matters.  And we agree! At least when it comes to the size of the Bin There Dump That dumpster rental needed to help you complete your next project.  Bin sizes are measured in cubic yards.  Whether you're doing a small clean up, or a major renovation, there is a bin for your job.  The various sizes include 4, 10, 15, and 20 yards.
And remember, with a Bin There Dump That rental you are not only provided with a clean, well maintained, extremely functional, residential friendly bin, but the peace of mind that your property won't be damaged thanks to our property protection guarantee. Our skilled operators place protective boards under every bin to ensure that your driveway is safe from any gouges or marks. We also sweep up once the job is done!

The only real challenge is to decide what size bin to get.  Here is some help:

4 Yard Bin

Small Projects For A 4 Yard Bin

The 4 yard bin is the perfect fit for small jobs such as clearing out last year's failed garden, leftover construction debris, or a small renovation. If a yard clean up is on your to-do list, this bin should be too!

10 Yard Bin 
Medium Projects For 10 & 15 Yard Bins 
The 10 yard bin is probably the most commonly requested bin. It can serve almost any household job (except perhaps a major renovation).  If you're clearing out a garage, or a basement, remodeling a small bathroom, removing some decking, or even getting a new roof, a mid-sized dumpster is likely a good fit for your project.

Large Projects For 15 & 20 Yard Bins 
Do you have a project that means business? Well we have the bin for you.  If you're adding an addition to your home, or clearing out grandma's attic, our larger bins might be the right fit for you. Or now that the kids are out of the house, and you're ready to downsize, it might be the perfect time to finally sort through those decades of toys, furniture, and other stuff you may no longer need.

Question of the week: Does my driveway have to be completely flat for placement?

While driveways are an obvious choice for where most residential roll-off dumpsters are placed, there are however, some places your dumpster rental should just not go. 

Sloped Surfaces

sloped surfaces can make roll-off dumpster rental use difficultIt’s all fine and dandy to put an empty bin on a slope, but things can change quickly once you start loading it up with junk. As the dumpster takes on more and more weight from whatever you’re tossing in it, the potential of the dumpster sliding or skating down a slope increases.
This is particularly important to keep in mind during winter, early spring, or late fall conditions when the threat of frost and freezing is present.
A lot of our roofing customers have experienced skating on a steep driveway. Think about all the roofing materials and scrap getting tossed into a dumpster rental from the roof — that slamming and compacting action onto the bin actually can cause it to skate right down into the street.

That said, sloped surfaces aren’t entirely off limits and getting a second opinion from your local Bin There Dump That franchise operator is a great idea. Thanks to our residentially-friendly roll-off dumpsters, our Delivery Experts are more than willing to work with your sloped driveway — positioning the dumpster in a secure and easily accessible location.
