You might assume you missed the boat on tackling that home renovation project. It’s winter, after all. Time to settle in for a few months of good television, popcorn and your couch.
Winter is actually a great time to re-do your basement, remodel the bathroom, and (or) tear out that kitchen backsplash that’s been bugging you since 2003.
But can you rent a dumpster bin in the snowiest, blowiest season? You bet.
Here’s a look at a few things to keep in mind when it comes to winter dumpster rental:
Availability Is Good
A lot of people tackle messy home renovation projects in the nicer weather. That’s the busiest time for dumpster rental companies.
That means there’s greater availability in the winter months. You might even get a dumpster bin delivered the same day you call.
Slick Driveway? No Problem
At Bin There Dump That, we’re pros at bin placement, in any weather condition.
Our driveway protection system includes protective boards that rest on the driveway before the bin ever touches the ground. That means our bins are stable and sturdy, even on slippery driveways.
So don’t worry — you won't have to watch in horror as your bin careens down your driveway into the street.
It’s not going anywhere.
Grab The Shovel, Please
Our roll-off dumpster bins are residential friendly. That means they snug up close and conveniently next to your house, right in your driveway.
So if it snows a few inches before our arrival, please grab your 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 piling up inside.
Usually, any accumulated snow melts, and the water will pour out when the dumpster tilts for emptying.
But melted snow in your dumpster can make some items waterlogged. That means they’re heavier. You don’t want to pay any more than you have to, and you sure don’t want to pay to dispose of piled up snow.
Cancel Due To Weather? Not Likely
Rarely do we cancel a bin delivery due to bad weather.
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.
Be Safe Out There
If you’re 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 on a blustery day. If you’re carrying an old couch or an armload of drywall, it’s even more precarious.
- Shovel a path for yourself.
- Spread de-icer on your pavement.
- Walk with caution.
