We’re all spending much more time at home these days. Perhaps you’ve been doing some cleaning and realize you have a lot of stuff in your basement, attic, or garage that you don’t use and want to get rid of.
If that’s the case, renting a dumpster is a great idea for you. No matter where you live in the Toronto area, we can help you with a dumpster rental.
Dumpster rentals are both easy and convenient. We’ll deliver one to your driveway, lawn or street; all you have to do is fill it, and you’re set to go. That being said, there are still a few steps you should take before your rental bin arrives:
You will be able to dispose of your waste faster if you choose a central location for the bin to be placed. You won’t have to spend as much time lugging waste if it’s easy to access from anywhere on your property.
You need to have available at least a 8-foot wide space for us to place your bin properly. If you do not have a driveway or other space large enough on your property, we can place it on your lawn or on the street.
If you want the dumpster bin placed on the street, you must ensure that you have the necessary street occupation permit. If you do have a driveway or other area on your property we can use, we will put wooden planks (free of charge) underneath the dumpster bin to help protect your driveway.
Before we arrive to drop off your dumpster, it’s important to ensure that the location you want us to place it is clear and accessible.
If we’re putting the bin in your driveway, find a location to park your cars temporarily. You don’t want us to drop off your dumpster and suddenly realize that it is blocking one of your cars. Also, clear anything else from the driveway like bikes and toys.
If we’re placing the bin on the road in front of your place, try to find a way to reserve the spot so no one parks in it. If your street allows street parking, talk to your neighbours in advance to let them know where you expect the rental dumpster to be put and how long it will be there. It’s important to note that even if your street allows street parking, you still require a street occupation permit.
Do as much prep work as you can ahead of time. Organize your waste by type, as you may need more than one dumpster depending on the kind of garbage you have. As well, put the waste as close as you can to where the dumpster location will be.
There are two benefits to having your waste organized ahead of time:
While we accept many different types of waste—everything from fridges to gravel—there are certain types of hazardous waste we don’t take. For example, we don’t accept things like paint, solvents, gas tanks, and oil.
Once you have all of your waste ready, take a good look through to make sure that only acceptable materials are in your waste pile. Hazardous materials must be disposed of properly at your local landfill.
We know it’s not always easy to declutter, so we want to help make the disposal process as simple as possible. Just follow the following four steps:
Now you know the four main steps to take before your rental dumpster arrives:
