Dumpster Rental FAQ: Do You Accept Straight Loads Of Material?

Posted by Luke Hancock

Oct 21, 2015 10:01:10 AM

The average dumpster load is like an archeological dig. You never know what's in there. Old rugs. Scrap wood. Uncle Elmer’s bottle cap collection.

But sometimes, you have a huge load of one thing.

Dirt from your extensive landscaping project. The concrete chunks you j-j-j-jackhammered out from your old patio. Shingles from a roofing re-do.

That's called a straight load, also known as clean fill.

We know — calling a bin full of dirt “clean” seems like a misnomer. But in dumpster lingo, clean means you know exactly what you're getting. No rusty nails mixed in with the concrete. No pieces of wood in the load of roofing shingles.

Bin There Dump That operators are happy to take your straight loads of material. But there are a few things you should know about this dumpster rental FAQ.

You’re bound to have questions about renting a dumpster, especially if you’re doing it for the first time. One of the top ones we get asked is what all is required to have a dumpster at your home. The answer to that depends on a few things.

If you want to put the dumpster on your yard or driveway, you won’t need a permit. However, if you want the operator to leave it on the sidewalk, street or a public alley, you will need to apply for a permit with your city’s Public Works Department.

When you want to put a roll-off dumpster in the public right-of-way, here’s what you’ll need to know about acquiring a permit.

10 Added Benefits You Might Not Expect From Your Dumpster Rental

Posted by Luke Hancock

Feb 28, 2015 4:19:00 PM

Consumers today are incredibly smart. So when a company says you’re getting something for free, you know darn well that “free” really isn’t all that free. Nine times out of 10, you’re either a) paying for it through the inflated cost of another service or b) it should be included in the product or service in the first place.

I’ll be honest, when it comes to the world of residential dumpster rental, you won’t find the word “free” casually thrown around. There are, however, some added benefits you might not expect from your rental experience. And while we can’t speak for all rental companies, we can speak from experience and on behalf of our Bin There Dump That local franchise operators.

Why Should I Only Hire Licensed, Bonded and Insured Contractors?

Posted by Luke Hancock

Jan 23, 2015 4:22:00 PM

“Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.”

It’s okay to not like Murphy’s Law. Honestly, I don’t know anyone who does. That’s because it makes us think about the worst case scenario. And no one ever really wants to think about worst case scenarios — especially when home renovations are involved. It just sounds costly and dangerous.

For some peace of mind, Bin There Dump That likes to inform our customers that we’re a licensed, bonded and insured dumpster rental company. And anytime you invite a skilled laborer onto your property — roofers, plumbers, electricians, etc. — it’s wise to hire only those that are licensed, bonded and insured, as well.
