In this article, we will discuss trash bin rentals and how to go about renting garbage bins when a situation arises.
A trash bin rental is the perfect solution when you’re cleaning out a home, remodeling, or doing something else that will result in large amounts of waste in a relatively short amount of time. For example, you may consider a dumpster rental when you’re getting ready to move because you’ll likely be amazed at how much trash you’ll be ready to throw away. Yard projects provide another scenario in which you might need to consider a trash bin rental. You can read our article about “Four Jobs that Make Renting Garbage Bins a Necessity” to get more information when you should rent garbage bins.
Whatever the reason, there are a few things you should keep in mind when it comes to renting a trash bin:
- Size matters. There is nothing worse than renting a bin and then discovering that it just isn’t big enough to take all junk you need to get rid of. On the other hand, there’s no reason to pay extra for a bin that is too large for what you need. Most companies that offer trash bin rentals will have several different sizes to choose from. They may be able to offer you some advice on which size to get, based on the type of job you are doing.
- Location, location, location. When renting a garbage bin for your home and yard, it’s easy to overlook the fact that you’ll need ample space for it, often because it isn’t a permanent fixture. Some cities may have laws that don’t allow trash bins to be placed on the road in front of your house. Also if you position the bin too far away from the doorway, then you’re spending excess time and energy transporting the junk to the bin and will just create more work for yourself. Think carefully about location when it comes to getting a trash bin rental.
- Make alternate parking plans. Sometimes it might be necessary to place the bin in your parking space. If this happens, you need to have an alternate place to park. It is best to plan ahead by scoping out your options. If your neighbors already have their usual spots, then take a few minutes and figure out where you can park without bothering them.
- Consider height. You might need to make a stepstool available to throw things into the bin. Some of these large bins are so tall that shorter people have a difficult time reaching up to toss things in. Just remember to ask about the height of the bin when you’re renting it.
Many garbage companies offer trash bin rentals, same day garbage removal, and complete junk removal services to make getting rid of your garbage easy and hassle-free. Mini Millennium provides trash bin rental and waste disposal in Toronto area. They offer residential, commercial, and industrial bins for all projects.
