Tree Removal Dumpster Service

Homes in Southern Ontario have been around for decades, and in some cases even longer. The population began to expand in the 1930’s and 40’s and it has continued ever since all across the province from rural homes to suburbs.

All of these homes have one thing in common: trees. Trees were planted for a variety of reasons for everything from providing shade and beautifying their landscape, to offering privacy and green space. They were also used as a natural barrier for people who didn’t want to build a fence. Trees of every variety are a staple on our properties, and since these properties are getting older, so are the trees.

Many of our trees are getting to the point where they need to be removed. They are either becoming sick and dying, or simply being too big, and their root system is spreading into our basements and underground plumbing. This is a huge problem in suburban areas where trees were planted in new subdivisions in front of every house. Sure it looked nice at first, but that was 40 years ago. Now their roots are destroying our plumbing and these trees need to be removed.

They can also be a hassle with your neighbours and lower your property value. For example, you may have a tree in your backyard that has become too large for its space. You no longer have any sunlight during the day, and it is dangerously hanging over into your neighbours yard. Branches are constantly breaking off, wrecking the fence and falling into their garden. They would be understandably annoyed about this, so its best to simply get rid of it before it becomes a real danger.

Hiring a tree removal service is easy enough, however they are always busy during the spring and summer so you will want to book one early. You are also going to need a roll-off disposal dumpster to haul away the tree once the removal service has cut it into pieces. You can simply order a bin online, and you will want to choose a large one, because removing a tree creates a huge amount of material that needs to be taken away to a recycling centre.

You can pick a time to have it delivered so it coordinates with your removal service, and have it picked up at a convenient time when the job is finished, or it is full.

Once the tree is removed you will find that your property enjoys more sunshine, is more open, so you have a better view and it somehow feels more fresh. It also increases your property value and if your old tree was breaking your foundation or plumbing, you can now have a crew move in and begin repairs.

Disposal Bin For Gardening

Many homeowners in Southern Ontario have begun growing their own food. This is a great idea, and wonderful hobby because it not only reduces your monthly grocery bill, and allows us to enjoy organically grown food that we control, but it is also a great way to get outside, enjoy the spring and summer months and simply enjoy a fun hobby. You will have fun reading about growing tips online, meeting new people in forums dedicated to growing your own food and starting your garden and you can share your advice with others. Truly, it is a fun community and a great project to begin this year.

Creating a garden means that you will want to do your research, plan ahead and prepare yourself because even though it is a lot of fun, it is also a big job, even for a smaller garden. You will need to excavate a couple of feet of soil, which means you will probably encounter sentiment and rock, plus you will more than likely need to create a drainage solution and if you are creating an above ground garden you will also need to build the enclosure.

All of this means you will have a large amount of material that needs to be removed, and all of it will have to be disposed of at a waste management facility.

When you are planning your project, you would be advised to order a roll-off disposal bin online in advance, so you can choose a time on your start date for it to be delivered at a time that works best for you. Then it can be placed on any accessible hard surface near your garden so you can easily access it when you start digging.

When you order your dumpster bin online, you can choose from a number of different sizes to suit your needs and budget. Digging up sod and a couple of feet of soil creates a huge amount of material, rocks, stones and debris that needs to be removed, so you would be advised not to underestimate the scope of your project. Even a small garden creates a lot of waste to be removed so use your best judgement, and also feel free to get in contact and ask for a suggestion.

Once your project is completed, and everything is planted, all you have to do is wait for nature to do its thing, and pretty soon your garden will flourish with fresh organic food that you can enjoy all summer, and preserve as much as possible for the winter months. We recommend renting a 4 Yard Disposal Bin from Clean Er Up Bin Rentals for gardening purposes.

Replacing An HVAC System

Many older homes in Southern Ontario still have an old HVAC system in their home that is now in need of replacement. Residents are finding that their homes aren’t as warm as they should be during the winter, or as cool as they need them to be in the summer. Their energy bills are also far more expensive and their homes simply aren’t comfortable anymore. You shouldn’t need to wear an extra pair of socks in your own home just to watch a tv show in the winter.

Putting in a new HVAC system has many advantages. You will instantly see a drastic improvement on your energy bill, your home will be climate controlled, there are many great new smart thermostats that allow you to control the temperature in any room of your house, it will increase the value of your property and your quality of life will improve. Additionally, replacing your HVAC is more than likely a one-time renovation, and once it is done, you will never have to think about it again.

When you replace your HVAC you can be certain about one more thing. Removing the old one is going to mean that you are going to have to rent a roll-off dumpster bin. An old HVAC means you are going to have a huge amount of material that needs to be removed. Additionally, that decades old system has years of old debris and material in it that has to be disposed of safely and according to the law. It is a big project, and you are going to need a large bin placed near your home in the driveway so workers can easily access it.

Ordering a disposal bin is easy. You can simply order the bin of your choosing online, and schedule a time to have it delivered. Depending on the size of your home, you will probably need more than one truckload to be removed because HVAC material will take up a lot of space in the bin, so you can schedule pickups when the bin is full. That way the material can be dropped off at the local waste management recycling centre, and return quickly so your workers have as little downtime as possible.

This spring and summer is a great time to replace your HVAC, and many contractors tend to book their season far in advance, so be sure to get your planning done early and book your dumpster bin in advance so your project happens on time and on budget.

Replacing A Driveway

Our driveways rarely get any love or respect. In fact, aside from shoveling them in the winter, and the kids using them as a chalkboard during summer break, our driveways are usually the last thing we think about, which is wrong because they are quite literally the very first thing our guests see when they arrive at our homes.

You take a great deal of pride in your home, and you want it to look its very best. You can have a beautifully manicured lawn, wonderfully curated garden and the fascia of your home can be power washed and spotless so that guests are instantly impressed with your home. However, if your driveway looks like somebody has been parking a tank on it and then using it for target practice, it will stand out like a sore thumb. You may as well have a rusted out 1979 Camaro on blocks on your lawn, because it will have the same effect on your curb appeal, and the value of your home.

Thankfully driveway renovations are a great and relatively inexpensive way to beautify your home, while adding value to your property. Spring and summer are a great time to replace your old and worn out driveway, and a professional company can usually have the job done in a few days, depending on if they are simply tearing out your old pavement and replacing it or creating something more intricate, like interlocking bricks.

Regardless of the type of makeover you are doing to your driveway, you are going to require a roll-off disposal bin so you can manage all the material and waste that will be created. Also be assured, there will be a lot of it.

Replacing a driveway means you will need to rent a dumpster bin, and you will most certainly want a big one. Driveway replacements create a massive amount of heavy, dirty waste material that needs to be hauled away to a local recycling centre so it can be disposed of legally.

You can order a bin online, and choose a time that is convenient for deliveries and pickups. You can also expect more than one truckload to be removed, so you can schedule those ahead of time as well, which will greatly reduce any downtime on the job, and help your project run smoothly and on budget.

What Can Go Inside Of A Disposal Bin Rental?

With spring around the corner in Southern Ontario, and summer right behind it, construction companies and homeowners are gearing up for their next home renovation, landscaping project, large scale decluttering and construction job. All of these projects mean that you will require a roll-off dumpster bin, and you can order one of our 4 bin sizes online. When you place your order we will schedule delivery and pickup times that are convenient for your schedule, and place your dumpster bin on your property on a hard flat surface that is easily accessible for your crew.

If this is your first project and you have never used a disposal bin rental service before, you probably have a few questions. Questions are great, and we love helping our clients. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is what items are allowed in a roll-off dumpster bin, and what can’t be placed in our bins.

Here is what you can place in our disposal bins:

• Wood – fencing, decking, firewood, old lumber.
• Construction materials – debris, drywall, tiling, wallboard, Sheetrock.

Selling Your Home In Toronto, Ontario

Here in Toronto, Ontario, home sales are booming like Alex Van Halens bass drum and many people are cashing in on the windfall and selling their homes.

If you are planning on selling your home this summer, then you will want to get a head start on preparing it for sale, and that means you are going to have to roll up your sleeves and begin the decluttering and staging process.

Every real estate agent and home sales television show will tell you that you simply cannot avoid a home clean out if you want to get the maximum dollar for your home. Nothing turns off prospective buyers more than viewing a cluttered, lived in home that is filled with old memories, furniture and other people’s belongings. Buyers want a clean space, so they can envision their design ideas and their belongings in the home. It should look like a showroom, not the morning after a New Year’s Eve party.

The inside of your home isn’t the only place you will want to declutter. You will want to completely clean out your garage. It should be spotless and not filled with old winter tires, boxes, rusty old bicycles and bits of old unwanted appliances and furniture you don’t want but never got around to throwing up.

It follows that you will also want to give your property a good clean up with some simple landscaping. If that old shed is filled with yard junk and is beginning to show its age, then it’s time to tear it down and replace it with a flower bed. New buyers will want to view your outdoor property the same way as the inside: as a showroom where they picture themselves sitting outside and entertaining their friends, and not thinking about how they have to tear down an old basketball hoop or get rid of a broken fire pit.

Spring is almost here, and it is a perfect time to get started on these projects so your home is ready for sale in a few months. You can get started inside while the weather is still warming up, and work your way outside when the ground has thawed to tear down that shed and plant some new flowers.

All of this decluttering is going to mean that you will require a roll-off disposal bin, and we have 4 sizes to choose from. Depending on the size of your home, and how much stuff you want to get rid of, you will more than likely need one of our larger 16 yard or 20 yard bins. We can place it anywhere on your property that has a flat hard surface, and we will schedule deliveries and pickups at your convenience when it is full.

Springtime Dumpster Rentals In Mississauga, Ontario

Springtime (and even early summer) in Mississauga, Ontario and the GTA always means at least one thing:

Weather.

Sure, winter may be over, and we are all enjoying being outside getting some exercise, working on our properties and enjoying some much-needed patio time with our family and friends. Springtime is great, and after being stuck inside all winter, we all love it and come alive again.

It also means that we can expect some very unpredictable weather that always catches by surprise and wreaks havoc on our property.

Every year we will experience sudden downpours of rain that knock out power, flood our streets and properties and generally cause sudden chaos everywhere. When it happens it is usually with little or no warning and then it ends as quickly as it began.

The same is true with our sudden high-powered wind storms, where on a seemingly sunny and uneventful day the wind will begin to whip itself up and what starts off feeling like a refreshing breeze, suddenly turns into a wall of 100 kph wind that tears trees and power lines down, rips roofs from their homes, knocks over small structures and spreads loads of debris everywhere. In some cases, we may even experience tornados.

These weather events happen every year and are inevitable. Chances are you have had to clean up after one already and you know how much damage they cause every year.

If your property is hit and suffers damage from a severe weather event, then you are going to clean it up. There is only so much a municipality can or will do, so for example if a tree has fallen on your property then chances are you are going to have to call some friends, break out the chainsaws and get rid of it yourself.

You are going to want to clean everything up as quickly as possible, and the very best way to do that is to rent one of our dumpster bins. We can place it anywhere central on your property so you can easily access it and then simply dispose of all the debris into the bin, and we will take it away. You can also use the opportunity to do some yard work and get rid of that old shed that took a beating during the storm, or tear down an old deck and build a new one.

These weather events happen a few times a year, and they always cause some level of damage and that means you should always have some kind of action plan holstered and ready to deploy. For example, if your home is hit by high winds and your roof is torn up, then you should have the contact information of a reputable roofing company ready to call. You will also need a dumpster bin delivered right away, and you can call us right away when you need us, and we will deliver a bin to your home right away so you don’t have to wait to begin your clean up.

Dumpster Bin Rentals For Bathroom Renovations

Most people view winter (especially during Covid) as the most boring time of the year. Here in Southern Ontario, we are stuck inside during the winter months, while it snows and all we can really do outdoors is shovel snow and clean off our cars. Basically, it is a good time to catch up on your binge tv watching, but other than that there isn’t very much to do.

Unless of course you have used the winter months to save a few dollars and plan a spring time renovation for your home. If you are one of these clever people, then you love winter.

Spring and summer renovations are commonplace here in Ontario because renovations are a perfect way to reinvent your home, and increase the value of your property. So, depending on your budget, you can generally use the spring as an ideal time to get at least something done on your home or yard. Bathroom renovations are a great way to give a heavily trafficked room in your home a makeover, on any sized budget.

Most people love to entertain during spring and summer, and although the party may be outside, most of your guests will eventually end up inside using your bathroom once or twice.

Bathroom renovations can be completed quickly and depending on your budget, you are really only limited by your imagination. You can simply change the colour of your bathroom, and upgrade the fixtures like the sink and bathtub, or you can tear the whole room out and do a complete remodel.

Any renovation project means you will have a ton of debris and unwanted material to dispose of, so you will need to think about your waste management plan. You can’t leave all of that material out on your yard for the one day a month the city picks up large items. You will need to rent a disposal dumpster bin.

Because spring and summer is the busy season for home renovations, it is also the busiest time of year for roll-off dumpster bin rentals. That means you should book your dumpster bin early. You can order online and choose from any number of bin sizes to suit your project. Pickups and deliveries can be easily scheduled, and when the bin is full it will be hauled to the nearest recycling centre and returned so you can keep your project moving seamlessly.

A successful renovation means having everything run smoothly and on time, so pre-planning your disposal bin needs early, is a great way to save time and make sure your project runs as smoothly as possible.

What Can and What Cannot Go Into a Dumpster in Hamilton CA

We know that when you get a bin from Clean Er Up you’re doing it because you’ve got a big mess to clean up. Maybe you’re doing a home renovation and have a lot of old broken tile and drywall you want to get rid of. Maybe you’re doing new construction and you just have so much trash from the process. Or maybe you’re taking on a beast of a yard and will be pulling out stumps. All of this is just the kind of thing that a dumpster in Hamilton CA is for.

But what isn’t allowed in a Hamilton dumpster rental? What products, substances, and chemicals are meant to be disposed of somewhere else?

Here is your comprehensive guide to what can and cannot go into a dumpster in Hamilton CA.

What Can Go Into a Dumpster in Hamilton CA?

This is the easy part, because SO MUCH can go into a dumpster, and we know you’ve been dying to get rid of it. 

General Trash

If you’ve got a question, check the section below, but typically anything that you throw into your trash bin every week can be thrown into a dumpster. There are exceptions for things like glues and adhesives–those should go in your regular trash, not the dumpster–so be sure to read on. But as a rule of thumb, anything you’d toss in the bin under your sink is good to toss in the dumpster.

Furniture

No problems here. It all can go. Couches, tables, chairs.

Appliances

Appliances can go in the dumpster, BUT there are a couple hitches. While you can throw out your washer and dryer, your microwave, your oven and your trash compactor, you will need to make sure that your refrigerator or AC units are free of any freon. (If you don’t know how to remove freon from one of these devices, contact an appliance or HVAC repair specialist and they’ll take care of it for you.)

Electronics

While you can throw away any electronic device in a dumpster, there is a question of how much you can throw away. If you’re just cleaning out a house and getting rid of some TVs and a couple computers, then you’re fine. But if you’re doing a major overhaul of an office space and getting rid of a lot of electronics, you may need to recycle them as e-waste. There are dedicated e-waste recycling companies in Hamilton CA that you can contact who will come to you and pick up old electronics.

Yard Waste

We’ll take any yard waste you can throw at us. If it’s organic, it can go in the dumpster.

Construction Debris

This includes a whole host of things, including bricks, asphalt, stone, shingles, drywall, wood, siding, tile, carpet, and most anything else from a construction site. However, if you are getting rid of a particularly large amount of stone and concrete, please contact us to make sure that it’s not too heavy for our dumpsters.

Other

The list of what can go in a dumpster can go on and on, but things like toys, books, paper, filing cabinets, non-organic trash are all good in the dumpster.

What Can’t Go In a Dumpster in Hamilton CA?

While there’s a lot that can go in a dumpster, there’s a lot that can’t. Here are the items that shouldn’t go in, and suggestions about where else you should dispose of them.

Adhesives

It may seem odd that you can’t throw glue and epoxy away in a dumpster, while you can easily put it in the regular trash. But this is because we don’t want any of the adhesives leaking and gluing things to the inside of the dumpsters. They can be very difficult to remove.

Batteries

Car batteries contain harmful chemicals and should be disposed of either at a recycling center or an auto shop. Lithium batteries, like those found in laptops, should be recycled with an e-waste recycler. Regular alkaline batteries, however, can go in the dumpster.

Corrosive Waste

Corrosive wastes are either acids or bases that can cause severe burns and erode metal. This includes bleach, oven cleaner, and rust remover. They should be taken to the Household Hazardous Waste Center.

Cleaners or Solvents

Cleaners or solvents–even household cleaners–shouldn’t be put into dumpsters. Typically, small amounts can be poured down drains and then you are free to put the empty bottles in the dumpster.

Fluorescent Light Bulbs

Fluorescent light bulbs contain mercury, which is highly toxic and must be recycled. 

Food Waste

Yes, we said that we’ll take anything organic, and we won’t mind if you empty the fridge into the dumpster. However, if it’s a large amount of food waste (if you’re cleaning out inventory at a grocery store or something similar) then that can attract unwanted animals. We recommend either throwing this in the regular trash or sending it to a composting center.

Fuels or Oils

Fuel like gasoline or kerosene, oil, propane tanks, or other combustible and flammable items should not be put in a dumpster. This also includes matches and flares, rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover and other ignitable wastes. Contact the Hamilton fire department about where these items can be dropped off.

Hot Water Heaters

Hot water heaters can contain harmful gases and should not be damaged by throwing it in a dumpster (or throwing something on top of it). If you’re getting rid of a hot water heater, we recommend transporting it carefully to a landfill

Biohazardous Waste

Biohazardous wastes contain things that are potentially infectious. This can include blood, animal waste, animal body parts and bodily fluids. It also includes sharps such as needles, glass vials and blades.

Medication

Medications should not be thrown in the trash or put into the water supply (don’t flush them down the toilet). They can be disposed of at the local pharmacy.

Paint or Lacquer

Paint, paint thinner, wood stain, and lacquers cannot go into a dumpster. They should be taken to the Household Hazardous Waste Center.

Printer Ink or Resin

While the ink of a single printer isn’t a problem, if you’re getting rid of a large quantity of ink it should be done through a recycling center. Any amount of resin should be taken to a recycling center.

Railroad Ties and Telephone Poles

Railroad ties and telephone poles are treated with harmful chemicals and are not permitted in most landfills. Some recycling companies will still take them.

Reactive Wastes

Reactive wastes are materials which are unstable under pressure or heat. This includes propane tanks, oxygen tanks, aerosol cans, ammunition and fertilizer. These should be taken to the Household Hazardous Waste Center.

Tires

Tires cannot be thrown in a dumpster as most landfills do not accept them. They can be recycled at an auto shop or tire store, however.

Toxic Wastes

This includes anything that may be dangerous if exposed to the body, inhaled, or swallowed. This includes antifreeze and pesticide. They should be taken to the Household Hazardous Waste Center.

Conclusion

As mentioned above. Most construction, yard or day-to-day trash materials are fine to throw in your dumpster rental. Outside of that, please consult our guide, call us, or contact your local Household Hazardous Waste Center.

Downsizing Your Home

Real Estate prices in St. Catharines, Ontario have gone through the roof in recent years, leaving many residents with a decision on whether they want to stay in their home, or cash out and downsize into a smaller home. Many baby boomers who now live in large empty nests that are becoming more difficult to maintain are choosing to downsize and that means they have a lot of stuff that needs to go before they can sell and move.

These homes are literally packed to the rooftop with stuff that has been accumulated over a lifetime. Most of it has long been forgotten about. Out of sight, out of mind, and now it all has to be sorted through, and tossed out.

All of this stuff means you are going to want one of our larger dumpster bins like our 16 yard or 20 yard, and you will probably require a few truckloads to dispose of everything. You can choose from any of our 4 bin sizes and order online. We will deliver a dumpster bin to you at a convenient time, and arrange pick-ups at a similar time of your choosing.

When it is time to clean out your home and ready it for sale, you will have a lot of stuff that is easy to say goodbye to like large furniture, carpets, appliances, mattresses and just about everything in the garage. However, you are also going to have to make some choices on what you can take with you and what will actually fit into your new, smaller home.

Here are a few easy tips for deciding what stays and what goes:

1) Ask family to help. You don’t want to throw away something that somebody in your family has an attachment to, so have them help out and inventory everything. One quick tip that follows; make sure that if somebody wants to keep an item, they take it with them. You don’t want to be stuck storing something in your new home.

2) Have a sale. Once you have decided on what stays and what goes, have yourself a yard sale. You can also post all of your items on marketplace websites. You may even have some buried treasure among the things to go. You may not want that old pool table anymore, but somebody else will want it, and they will happily pay for it.

3) Once everything has been picked through and sold, you will still have a lot of stuff left to get rid of. You can donate a lot of it to local charities who would love to have it. Items like old clothes, sporting equipment, furniture, appliances and everything that still has some life in it. Many charities will also come and pick everything up as well.

Downsizing your home is a great way to take advantage of real estate prices, and stay close to family in a home that is easier to manage, so when you decide to make the move, simply contact us, and we will work with you and remove all of your unwanted stuff safely and quickly.
