Winter Dumpster Rentals - 6 Things You Should Expect

Think it's too late for tackling those home clean out or renovation projects?

Not so fast! 

Winter is actually a great time to re-do your kitchen, remodel the bathroom, and (or) clean out that clutter-filled basement. Start the New Year off right with a fresh look and a clean slate! Just think of how many holiday calories you could burn off while simultaneously losing excess baggage around the house.  

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when it comes to a winter dumpster rental:

Great Availability

A lot of people tackle their projects in the summer when the weather is nice and motivation is at its peak. But, that's also the busiest time for dumpster rental companies.

That means there's greater availability come the winter months. Chances of getting a dumpster delivered to perfectly match your schedule or even the same day you call, are at their highest!

Slick or Icy Driveway?

At Bin There Dump That, we're pros at bin placement, in almost any weather condition.
Our driveway protection guarantee includes protective boards that are carefully placed on the driveway before the bin ever touches the ground. This provides a stable and sturdy foundation for our bins, even on slippery driveways.  

Grab The Shovel, Please 

Our bins are residential friendly. This means that they can be placed conveniently close to your house or snug next to where your project is located. 
So if it snows a few inches before our arrival, please grab a shovel and clear a space for the bin. 

Fill Your Dumpster With Debris, Not Snow 

If it starts snowing heavily while the dumpster is in your driveway, you might want to toss a tarp over the top to keep the snow from adding up inside.
Usually, any accumulated snow will melt, and the water will pour out when the dumpster tilts for emptying.
But melted snow in your dumpster can make some items waterlogged and heavy. You don't want to pay more than you have to, and neither do we. 

Cancellations Due To Weather? Not Likely 

Rarely do we cancel a bin delivery due to bad weather. 
Our trucks are not only residential friendly, but well equipped for the elements.

Back in December, 2013, a massive ice storm devastated greater Toronto. Utility poles and tree branches collapsed under the weight of the thick ice accumulation. More than 300,000 homes were without power. Trees toppled onto houses all over the city. Ice covered everything.
There was a huge need for dumpsters to help in the cleanup of fallen branches, damaged roofing and siding. Bin There Dump That operators answered the calls, despite the storm. 

Clean up with Caution

If you are planning on toting items out to your driveway this winter to toss in the dumpster, be careful out there. It's tricky enough navigating a slick driveway empty handed. If you're carrying an old couch or an armload of items, it's even trickier. 

Make sure you have a clear path shoveled out for yourself. Spread some de-icer on your pavement to help melt down any slick surfaces. And lastly, be cautious when walking. We want all of our customers to have a safe and stress-free experience with us! 

Time To Tackle That Winter Project? Reserve A Bin!  

Bin There Dump That operators are happy to deliver a residential friendly bin right to your driveway, even in lousy weather. The bin will sit, safely and securely, even on a slick driveway. You might even get it the same day you call.
