Posted by Luke Hancock

May 29, 2020 9:00:00 AM

You’ve rolled up your sleeves. Your somewhat unreliable brother-in-law just pulled up — on time — ready to help. In just a few short hours, that cluttered basement of yours will be empty and unbelievably spacious.

But you know what would really help? Getting your dumpster as close as possible to the door you’ll be going in and out of the most this morning. Luckily, roll-off dumpsters like those from Bin There Dump That can — and have — fit just about anywhere.

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. Here’s a closer look at five spots around your home that you might want to think twice about before placing the dumpster.

How Long Can I Keep My Dumpster Rental?

Posted by Luke Hancock

Apr 28, 2020 6:29:00 AM

There are many different jobs and reasons to rent a dumpster or waste disposal bin at your home. Maybe you’re in the midst of a home renovation project, like a bathroom or kitchen. You might be cleaning out your garage, storage area or basement. You could be replacing or fixing your roof.

Homeowners often get a bin rental when they are decluttering before moving out of a home or even renting one when moving into a new home (my sister was left with this predicament)

Maybe you just love how that big metal box in your driveway accents those pine trees on either side of the front door! (Just kidding.)

Whatever the reason, the dumpster should be there in your driveway for as long as you need it – but not longer than you want it! Let’s face it: Once the job is complete, don’t you really just want that thing gone?

Need Ideas For An Empty Basement? We've Got 22 Of Them

Posted by Luke Hancock

Apr 24, 2020 1:56:00 PM

Let’s cut the pretense and just call the basement by its real name: dumping ground.

Every piece of junk and clutter we think we might need someday but we’re not quite sure what to do with ends up in the basement.

Cast-off kitchen appliances you keep in case of emergency. Those curtains that might be perfect for some window, someday. Old comic books. The dog sweater from Aunt Edna.

Clean. It. Out.

We know. We can sense your shudder from here. But it has to be done. Next up: The fun part. Once you have that nice open space, the possibilities are endless.

6 Unexpected Dumpster Rental Costs

Posted by Luke Hancock

Apr 1, 2020 5:10:00 PM

Caveat emptor (buyer beware). Read the fine print. Hidden fees.

Even the most savvy shoppers sometimes get caught by unexpected charges on their bill.

There’s nothing wrong with a company making a profit — that’s what they’re in business for. We don’t think anyone would (or could) dispute that. The question becomes how businesses go about turning that profit.

Have you ever listened to a commercial on the radio and then at the end a guy comes on and reads a disclaimer, which in the last three seconds has more words in it than the rest of the commercial did in the first 27 seconds? What is it they’re trying to hide? It’s the same concept that turns a $129 hotel room into one that really costs $159 a night.

Many companies hide charges from their customers springing fees on them after the fact. Companies might push them off as the “cost of doing business,” which while technically true, creates ill will with customers.

When it comes to bin rental costs, there are so many variables to consider. Among those costs in dumpster rental prices include:

  • Length of the rental
  • Cost to dispose waste at a local dumping facility
  • Where you live
  • What trash you decide to throw into the bin

Bin There Dump That has no hidden fees. Though our franchise operators do charge some of the dumpster rental fees described below, they are communicated ahead of time.

Here are six dumpster rental costs customers might not expect — but will definitely know about before they begin their dumpster rental.
