Dumpster Bin Guide

So you have finally decided that your next project can’t or won’t wait, and you are putting the pieces together. You have found a contractor, pulled the necessary permits, planned your life accordingly and now you are here because you need a dumpster for all of the material that needs to be removed.

At this point you have decided to use Clean Er Up dumpster rentals because we’re awesome (yes, we really are and we thank you for your business), however you are trying to pick the correct sized bin for your project. You can call or email us and we will offer you a suggestion, or here is our simple breakdown of what we suggest for your next order.

CLEAN OUTS

Let’s say you are doing some decluttering like cleaning out the garage, basement or even the whole house. Depending on the room you are cleaning out, and how much stuff you have (most people tend to underestimate how much stuff they have accumulated over the years) you will almost certainly want one of our larger bins. You can choose from our 16 yard or 20 yard bins, and again depending on how much stuff you are throwing out, you can expect anywhere from 6-8 truckloads to be removed.

CONSTRUCTION

If you are planning a home renovation, addition or large scale construction project we strongly advise you to simply skip right over the smaller bins and order our 20 yard bin. Construction projects produce a massive amount of material and debris, and many of those pieces like wall framing are large pieces that won’t fit into a smaller bin, so it is best to go for the largest of our bins and expect roughly 12 truckloads to be removed.

ROOFING AND SHINGLES

Roofing and shingle replacement is fairly common in Southern Ontario because our winters tend to be rough on our homes, which means we usually need to replace our roofing every 20-25 years. These projects created a lot of debris so depending on the size of your roof, we suggest that you choose our 16 yard or 20 yard bins. They can handle all of the material easily and you can expect roughly 4-5 truckloads to be removed.

LANDSCAPING

Our clients are always amazed at how much material is removed during a landscaping project. Even a small project like simply re-sodding your lawn produces a massive amount of debris. For example, imagine rolling up all of your existing yard, plus a few layers of soil, rock and other sediment and then fitting it all into your garage. See what we mean? Therefore, we suggest that you order either our 4 yard or 10 yard dumpster for your project, and expect roughly 6-10 truckloads to be removed.

CONCRETE AND DRIVEWAY DISPOSAL

Are you digging up your old driveway or removing a large concrete slab, like a patio? If so you are going to need a 4 yard dumpster bin and expect anywhere from 6-8 truckloads to
