How a Rental Bin Can Help Your Landscaping Project

Posted By On August 01 2020
Benefits of a rental bin for you landscaping project

Rental bins can be an asset to any landscaping job. These bins can safely take care of any messes, no matter the scale of the project. To maximize your landscaping project, you’ll want to hire a company with insurance to protect all areas. At Scarborough Disposal, we offer flexible rental periods to accommodate your project schedule and always make sure we deliver bins on time.

Landscaping Project Ideas

By tidying up your yard and making it look more aesthetically pleasing, you can add some curb appeal to sell your home in the future. There are many project ideas to choose from, so be sure to take the time to plan, look through blogs and magazines for inspiration, and get your yard prepared for when it comes time to start the project.

First, you’ll want to get rid of any items on the lawn like leaves or debris, which is where your rental bin comes in handy. Once everything is cleared off, you have more space to let your imagination run wild and create a project that will suit your home.

Many people add colourful flowers and shrubs to brighten their backyard. You can head to a local nursery for advice and see what plants would complement your project. It’s also essential to consider how much maintenance they require and how fast or large they will grow, and if that would be ideal for your home.

Another project idea that many people undertake is installing a deck or pathways. You can add items like pebbles, a firepit, a patio, or whatever suits your decor or home style.

What types of bins can you use?

Once you have decided on what project you want to pursue, you’ll want to ensure your yard is ready to go by cleaning up the lawn and disposing of all the unnecessary materials. Many landscaping projects generally require three types of bins. Here is some more information about these bin types and what kinds of projects they are suitable for:

Clean Fill Dumpsters

Clean fill dumpsters have a flat rate and are the most commonly used disposal bin for landscapers. They are ideal for disposing of soil, concrete, asphalt, and more.

Solid Waste Dumpsters

If you are undertaking a landscaping project that involves wood, yard waste, and drywall, then a solid waste dumpster would work well for your project. One thing to note is that these items do not allow hazardous materials like chemicals, paint cans, and propane tanks.

Commercial Roll-Off Bins

Commercial roll-off bins are perfect for more significant landscaping projects. They allow the same waste as residential solid waste dumpsters, as previously mentioned.

What size bins do you need?

To best prepare for renting a disposal bin, you will want to walk around your yard and get a sense of what needs to be tossed out. That way, you’ll know what size bin will be adequate for your needs.

A general rule of thumb is that 4 and 6-yard bins are appropriate for landscaping projects. If you have a 9-yard bin full of soil, then a truck will not lift one that large.

Where should you place your bin?

The placement of your bin all depends on where the work is being done. You will want your bin closest to the action to make less of a mess and so that it is not an obstacle. For instance, if you rent a bin for longer than a day, you won’t want to keep it located on the sidewalk or your street. If you have no other option, then you can obtain a permit from the city.

A reliable waste management and bin rental company like Scarborough Disposal will place the dumpster in the most convenient location for you. You can put all your efforts into the project itself and not wear yourself out running back and forth for long distances to the bin each time. It is also essential to put wood underneath the bins so that your driveway or yard won’t become damaged.
