The Common Bin Rental Mistakes & How To Avoid Them

Bin rental services are a waste disposal solution for a number of different construction projects. Whether it’s the renovation of old houses or the demolition of new ones, you need to simplify your overall process to ensure that you can complete your project on time and with as little hassle as possible. That’s where bin rental services come in.

Dumpster bins are a time-saving, hassle-free way to remove waste and debris following a renovation or some form of construction. However, there are a few mistakes associated with using a dumpster bin rental which can impact the effectiveness of having a dumpster bin on site. If you like to know more, contact us at Disposal Queen, we are available 24/7 to assist you or help you with any type of bin rental and recycling services.

Not Enough Space to Place Your Construction Dumpster

Disposable bin rental services often make the mistake of not providing enough space for bins to be placed. It’s a common misconception that any container will fit into any space. In reality, it’s essential to measure the location of the dumpster prior to placing an order; it may block traffic and pedestrians on your city street or sidewalk. This may cause you to have schedule delays to have the dumpster placed in a more suitable location which can mean money out of your pocket and time lost.

Unfortunately, the wrong location can lead to fines being levied against you by your local government, as well as a denial of future projects for a bin rental. When selecting a bin company for your dumpster needs, make sure that the dumpster is placed in an area where it will not infringe on the rights of others.

It is important to find a location to place your construction dumpster that the truck can easily access. It may not sound like a big deal, but it can make a significant difference in the efficiency of your job. You want to make sure the truck is able to drop off and pick up the dumpster without any issues. That way, you can avoid one or two trips that would only lengthen your project time.

How To Avoid Restricted Materials

Some restrictions also come in the form of not being able to put certain items into your disposal bin. Before tossing an item into it, make sure that it is not categorized as a restricted item. Some things, such as batteries, can corrode the containers inside the disposal bins if they go unseen. The corrosion can lead to many other problems that can cause injury or harm to you or anyone who might be using the disposal later on. If you are unsure about an item, call the Disposal Queen office for more information and directions on how to properly dispose of it.

When disposing of sensitive materials like light bulbs, batteries, or electronics, make sure that you keep these out of the disposal bin. They can be broken down into metal pieces, which could damage your disposal unit.

Disposing of waste materials such as general construction/renovation trash, household items such as air conditioners, paint cans, hot water tanks, asbestos, electronics, and hazardous materials requires special handling. The critical takeaway is that you should always be aware of what you are throwing away and check the guidelines set by your local municipality to ensure that the items you intend to throw away are accepted at the selected site.

The Underestimated Importance of A Bin Size

Underestimating the size of the bin you need for a job can be tempting, seeing as how it gives you more cash upfront. Unfortunately, this is often done, at least in part by overestimating how much waste will be generated by the job you are doing or underestimating the amount of space available to store your bin on site.
