When renting a dumpster in Hamilton you want to make sure that you’re getting the best dumpster for the best price. Fortunately, at Clean Er Up Bin Rentals we are completely transparent in our dumpster fees. You can look up any one of the dumpsters online and see how much they would cost by size and by number of days rented. That link is below. 

But there’s more that goes into dumpster rental fees than just a dumpster. What do you get for your money when you rent a dumpster in Hamilton, and what additional fees could there be?

What Do You Get For Your Dumpster Rental Fees?

When you rent a dumpster from Clean Er Up Bin Rental, it’s an all-inclusive package. Yes, we know that makes it sound like it’s a vacation with everything included, but when you’re doing a lot of heavy work and loading that dumpster it’s going to feel like a vacation when someone shows up to take all of it off your hands and leave you with a clean yard.

The dumpster rental fees include the delivery of the dumpster, the pick-up, the disposal (including landfill and recycling fees), and fuel charges. In other words, it’s the whole package. You pick how long you want to have it, then we come with the dumpster on our truck, deposit it in the driveway (or the relevant area where you’re working), you fill it up over the course of the several days you have it, then we pick it up, haul it away, and you’ll never have to worry about anything in it ever again.

Where Can You Find the Rental Fees?

The rental fees are on our website, which you can access here. When you get to the page, you can select the right size dumpster for your job, the number of days you’re going to need it, and the date you want it. The price will be right there in front of you—you don’t even need to talk to a salesperson. 

Each quote gives you the full price and gives you a weight limit. If you exceed that weight limit, then there is a prorated cost on top of the original price (and that prorated cost is also listed on the website, so everything is transparent). If you want to keep the dumpster an additional few days, there’s a cost listed there for that as well.

What Additional Fees Are There for Dumpster Rental?

There are additional fees for dumpster rentals for going over the allotted weight limit (which is clearly marked online), and the cost for keeping the dumpster for additional days, though there are a few more fees for rare circumstances. 

  • Typically, all our dumpsters include one ton (2000 lbs) of weight. Extra weight is $120 per ton, and that’s prorated (so if you only put in an extra half ton, you’ll only pay half that). 
  • If you need the bin for more than your rented days, the day extension fee is $20 per extra day
  • In the event that we come to pick up the dumpster and cannot get it (either because it is overfilled or is blocked by vehicles) there will be a dry-run charge of between $100 and $150.
  • As tires are not meant to be disposed of in the dumpsters, every tire in the bin will add a $10 Eco charge. 
  • In the event that you have disposed of restricted or hazardous materials in the bins, there will be a charge from a 3rd party cleanup crew plus a $450 markup.

The Best Way To Clean Up After A Wedding

The Best Way To Clean Up After A Wedding

Here in Southern Ontario the dark thick fog of the pandemic is finally beginning to lift, and hopes are high that we can return to our normal lives. It has been a rollercoaster of a year, but we’re almost there, and that means we can think about putting those tentative plans back on the calendar and making up for lost time.

One of those things that got put on the backburner for many people was their wedding. Those got shut down in a hurry, and couples scrambled to make new arrangements. It was frustrating, it caused a lot of anxiety and basically it sucked in every possible way.

This spring and summer many couples are planning outdoor weddings because they are a great way to move forward with their weddings, and walk the line of still being able to invite a full guest list to their event and still be safe. It is a great way to still have your special day, and with millions of great ways to have an outdoor wedding online, you can piece together a beautiful experience that is probably not only a lot nicer than simply hiring a venue, but also more original. You can make it all about you, and your tastes.

When you are planning your outdoor wedding, don’t forget to think about the practical stuff. Sure it’s easy to forget about the need for portable toilets when you really want to think about centrepieces, but your guests are really going to need those portapotties.

You will also need electricity, water, probably a trailer or two for the wedding parties to get ready and you will need to rent a roll-off disposal dumpster. Weddings create a massive amount of stuff that requires disposal and you can’t just leave it in a field.

You can rent one from us online and we will book a time to deliver to your event. We can place it discreetly away from the event on any hard flat surface, and when the show is over, we will haul everything away to a local waste management recycling centre. You won’t have to see it, think about it, and when you are long gone on your wedding night there won’t be a huge mess for the parents and friends to clean up.

The Best Bin Rentals For Large Property Cleanouts

Southern Ontario is a unique place because within 100 mile radius, you can experience just about every style of living. You can go from living in a dense heavily populated city in Toronto, to suburban living in Mississauga, Oakville, Brampton and the surrounding region, to smaller more intimate towns and even living on a farm. It is a great place filled with a diverse population that enjoys everything from condo living, to settling into life on a horse farm.

One of the benefits of living on a large property like a farm, or larger piece of land is that you can simply enjoy your outdoors. You can create it in any way you choose, and since you are far away from your neighbors, your outdoor space becomes an extension of your home.

Now that more and more people are able to work from home, living outside of a city makes even more sense. Your home buying dollar goes further, and you get to spend spring, summer and fall on your large piece of property and enjoy nature. You can even build on it and create a completely detached home office, so when you need some privacy from the main house, you can retreat to an office and focus on your work.

One of the downsides of large properties is that over the years they become magnets of unwanted stuff. If you take a walk around any farm house or large property you will find endless amounts of stuff just laying around against fences or in fields. It can be anything too from old bicycle frames, broken equipment, long forgotten about pieces of fencing and leftover material from renovation projects. It is everywhere and unfortunately it is not only an eyesore, it impacts the value of your home.

Getting rid of all of these bits of stuff and debris is a great way to give your outdoors a spring cleaning.

Depending on how much unwanted junk you have on your property, you will probably need at least a weekend or two to get rid of it all. You will also need two more things. A few good friends to help you out that are willing to work for bbq and some cold pops, and a roll-off disposal dumpster bin.

Your stuff has to be taken to a local recycling centre and disposed of safely and according to the law. That means it all has to go into a dumpster and safely be removed. You can choose from 4 different sizes of roll-off bins, and have it placed on your property in a location that is central to where you are working. Then when it is full, it can be hauled away and returned if needed for another load.

Once everything is removed from your property you will now be able to enjoy it clean and free of rusty unwanted junk and enjoy a nice increase in your property value. It’s a great way to start the summer with a fresh start and look.

Ordering A Dumpster Bin During Bad Weather

Here in Southern Ontario, we have been experiencing some rather unpredictable summer weather over the last few years. The weather patterns are changing, and this has resulted in sudden storms, or high winds that seem to come out of nowhere and tear our property apart. They blow down trees, tear off roofs and scatter debris all over our property which then knocks out our power and generally causes us a few days of chaos, and some insurance headaches.

These weather events can be anywhere between a clean up hassle, to a huge life event. Very frequently they can knock a tree down which then ends up falling into a person’s dining room, or tearing a roof to sheds, all within a few minutes.

If your property has been hit by strong weather, and you have to have repairs done you are going to need to immediately order a roll-off disposal dumpster bin.

The clean up process has to start right away, so crews can get onto your property and begin repairs. For example, if your roof has been partially torn off, and you have tree branches and other debris all over your property, you will need to clean out an area for them to get their vehicles and workers in so they can tear off your old broken roof and replace it. All of this has to happen quickly and efficiently so having your dumpster bin already on site when they arrive will save you a lot of time and money. This way they can simply dispose of all of the broken debris quickly and get to work on the new roof.

Your bin can then be removed quickly and taken to a local waste management recycling station where it is emptied and returned quickly so it can be filled with another load. This will allow your workers the ability to do their jobs with almost no disruption to their job, and your home will return to normal as soon as possible.

These new weather patterns are becoming more frequent, and commonplace, so make sure you have an emergency plan in place, including phone numbers and contact information for crews so if your property is hit, you won’t have to wait days or more to have repairs done.

Community Cleanups In Southern Ontario

We love this.

Many communities in Southern Ontario have come together over the last few years and started participating in community cleanups.

A community cleanup is essentially what it sounds like and you think it is. Basically in many towns and cities, local communities organize a day or weekend to get together and clean up their parks, streets, wildlife areas, rivers, schools and apartments. It is a lot like a block party, but with tools, rakes, brooms and garbage bags. It’s a great way for neighbors to get together, and even meet each other with the common goal of spending a few hours tidying up their communities. For example, maybe the local park needs a lot of work. Some bratty kids have painted graffiti on the playground, there is trash and debris everywhere, many of the trees have dangerously overhanging branches that need to be removed, and the landscaping needs some attention.

So the neighbors put a plan together on their local Facebook group, everyone brings their tools, a few people set up some coolers and a BBQ area and then after a few hours, the park looks great and everyone has a good time. It’s an amazing way to spend a spring or summer day, and give a little back to your neighborhood.

If you are planning something similar, you are going to need a roll-off disposal dumpster bin to haul all of the unwanted material and debris away. We have 4 different bins that you can choose from and order one or more online to be delivered at a scheduled time. We will then deliver it and place it on any hard flat surface on our custom made wooden planks. Then when it is full, we will haul it away to a local waste management recycling centre so everything can be disposed of according to the law. We will return the bin quickly, and you can refill it with another load.

When your neighborhood cleanup is done, and it is time for some BBQ and a few cold pops, your block will look great and you can probably expect a bit of a bump in your property value as well, and that’s something we can all come together and enjoy.

Cleaning Up All Of Your Organic Waste

Spring and summer in Southern Ontario are the perfect time to tackle that landscaping project and give your property a makeover. It will not only make your home more appealing, but it also increases the value of your home. Additionally, since we spend half our lives inside during the winter, we tend to move ourselves outside as much as possible during the warm months, so cleaning up your landscaping, maybe planting a new garden and fixing up your patio or deck is a great way to spend this season’s fixer up time.

Let’s say that you really don’t have a single project to tackle, but several small to medium sized ideas. For example, you have an old tree and some of those branches are dangerously hanging low near a fence and they need to come down. You may have a large hedge that needs pruning, the gardens need resoiling and planting, or maybe you’re even planning on growing some fresh veggies so you’re digging up a new garden. Plus the deck needs a new rail, and you want to replace the gutter on the house.

All of these are great, quick and easy ways to freshen up your property, and won’t cost a big load of cash.

When you decide to roll up your sleeves and tackle the backyard this year, you will want to rent a roll-off disposal dumpster. You may not think you will have much material to dispose of, but all of those projects add up quickly, and they create a massive amount of debris and unwanted material that has to be disposed of safely, and according to local and municipal laws.

You can order one of our roll-off disposal dumpster bins online, and we will deliver it to your home, and place it on any hard, flat surface on our custom made wooden planks, so it won’t leave a permanent mark. Then once it is filled, we will haul it to a local waste management recycling centre and return it if you still have more material that needs to go.

Then once the projects are all done, all you have to do is invite some family or friends over, fire up the BBQ and enjoy the rest of your summer.

The Benefits Of Installing A New Fence

Spring and summer in Southern Ontario means that we come out of our homes after months of being trapped inside like mole-people. This past year has been especially rough on all of us and we can’t wait to compete in our favorite summer sport: The summer bbq.

During the spring and summer, our backyards turn onto another room in our home. We spend our outside entertaining, working out, gardening or simply enjoying a good book under the warm Canadian sun. We love our backyards and we spend a lot of time, and money on them so they look great.

If you love your backyard like most of us do, you have spent a few dollars and many hours sprucing it up. However, if your fence is old, falling apart and generally in need of replacing, it is kind of like buying a brand new living room set and then putting it in a room with cracked and peeling stained wallpaper. If that is the case with your backyard, then maybe this is the season you make putting in a new fence your summer home renovation project.

A new fence has three key benefits, aside from simply looking good. A new fence locks in oxygen from trees and your lawn, which leads to a fresher smell and higher oxygen levels. It helps you breathe better, so if you have allergies, then a new fence will drastically improve the quality of your time that you spend outside.

It also increases the value of your property dramatically, so the moment your new fence is installed, and the work crew are pulling out of your driveway, you can expect a spike in the value of your home, which is especially great if you are planning on selling it in the near future.

It also has its privacy benefits because let’s face it, as the saying goes, fences make great neighbors.

When you remove your old fence, you will have a large amount of used and unwanted debris that will have to be taken to a local waste management recycling depot and disposed of according to the law. You can simply chop it up and burn it because of local bylaws, and you wouldn’t want to try it anyways, because your old fence has been treated with stain, paint and chemicals, so burning it would not only stank up the neighborhood, but potentially become a huge fire risk.

You can avoid all of that by hiring a roll-off disposal dumpster bin and have it placed in your driveway. That way your crew can simply tear down the old fence, and place everything safely into the bin and have it hauled away. This will help the project move forward quickly, and keep your costs down. Depending on the size of your fence, and if you have planned everything out, it should only take a day or two, so it is worth the small investment and have all of your material carted away in a dumpster bin.

Advantages Of Having A New Roof Installed

There are many things in life that are simply undeniable, whether we like them or not. For example, the song “Africa” by the band Toto is a stone jam, period. You may not like it, but it is.

Another undeniable fact is that here in Southern Ontario, the roofs on our homes are aging rapidly. That combined with our harsh winters and unpredictable summer weather that frequently includes high winds and sometimes hail the size of a chihuahua, our roofs take a beating.

You don’t have to wait for that one fateful day when a storm hits and the roof starts leaking to replace your roof. You can get ahead of any future problems that may come up and make it your spring or summer renovation project, and here are three great reasons why you should:

Great Curb Appeal:

An old roof looks…..well…..bad. It just does and it doesn’t do much for the look of your home, even if you love to landscape and have done a lot of work on your home making it attractive to guests. An old roof looks ratty, and it can also contain mould, unwanted guests like mice, rats and racoons and let’s face it, you are going to have to replace it sooner or later so why not do it sooner?

Higher Resale Value:

A new roof instantly increases the value of your home. It is that simple.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency:

Putting on a new roof increases the capability of your HVAC system because not all shingles are created equally. Modern shingles reflect solar energy, which means that your home doesn’t heat up in the summer nearly as much, which puts a strain on your HVAC system. Your home will stay cooler and that directly translates into a lower monthly energy bill. Many modern shingles have an Energy Star rating, so do a good search and find some shingles that offer you the best value for your energy saving dollar.

When you hire a company to remove your old roof, you can expect a ton of material and debris that will need to be safely removed according to the law to a local waste management recycling facility, so you will need to rent a roll-off disposal dumpster bin. The bin can be placed on your driveway on wooden planks, so it will never leave a permanent mark, and workers can then simply tear your old roof up, and toss everything into the dumpster below. This will make the job go quickly, and keep costs down, which is something we call all agree on.

Putting In A Pool In 2021

Remember growing up, and there was a family in the neighborhood, or some relatives who had a pool? Their house was like a magnet for entertainment. Of course the kids loved it because they could swim and goof around, and the adults had a great time with all summer long bbq parties and plenty of cold drinks. Even the dog loved it and would get in on the action. Backyard pools are great, and here in Southern Ontario, where we love our few months of warm weather, backyard pools become the epicentre or our lives.

If you are planning on putting in a pool this year, you can expect more than a good time entertaining family and friends. Pools have very real benefits that homeowners enjoy all summer long.

Notably, a pool increases the value of your home, which is always a good thing. Additionally, you can create a really stunning pool that can be more than a simple hole in the ground, but is a part of the architectural landscaping design of your home.

Along with your swimming pool, you could include:

Water features
A fire pit
High-quality fencing
A modern deck or patio
Exterior lighting
A gazebo, pergola or cabana

It also has amazing health benefits because you get outside and ditch the electronics. Swimming is one of the best exercises and starting with a couple laps per day, while slowly increasing over time is a great way to manage weight, and enjoy overall better health. It may also inspire you to take up other exercise activities like yoga, riding a bike or hitting the weights.

Once you have hired your pool contractor, be sure to book your roll-off disposal dumpster bin in advance. You are going to need a large one, like a 20 yard bin because you will have actual tons of soil, stones and material to be removed. All of that debris can’t simply be dumped anywhere and will need to be taken to a waste management recycling centre and disposed of according to the law, so have your disposal bin plans in place before the guys and the Bobcat show up.

Pool installation doesn’t take all that long, and within a few days your family will be outside, away from the social media and enjoying the outside all summer long so have your plans together and get started. Summer is over in a blink of an eye and after the pandemic, we are going to all need some pool time this year.

The True Cost Of Clutter

Okay good people, hunker down because today we had our minds blown, and this article is probably one that many people can relate to, but never actually considered.

When we were thinking up new and interesting article ideas today, we wondered “how much is the actual cost of clutter in a home?”

Seemed like a fair question, so we considered to skip past the curb appeal, and value of the home if you are selling it, and instead focus on how much clutter costs per square foot in Southern Ontario, and then the more expensive GTA.

The average cost of a home by square foot in Southern Ontario is roughly $200 per square foot. In the GTA, which includes Toronto, Brampton, Mississauga, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and Halton Region, the average cost can be as much as $1083.

That. Blew. Our. Minds.

Just for the sake of example, let’s split those two numbers and say that the cost of a home in Hamilton-Wentworth Region, Peel, Niagara Region and Halton is somewhere in between at roughly $500-$600 per square foot. That means that for every square foot of space in your home that has unwanted clutter that you never use like furniture, sports equipment, old televisions sets, kids toys, boxes full of whatever, appliances and everything else under the sun, it is costing a homeowner at least $500 per square foot just to keep it.

If that isn’t enough reason to give the home a good spring and summer clean out, then we don’t know what is.

When you look at the true cost of clutter in home value and monetary terms, it really rings the bell. Why do we keep this stuff in our homes? We never use it, we don’t want it, and it takes up very valuable space. So what gives? Well the answer is probably that most people don’t know what to do with it.

The answer is you rent a roll-off disposal dumpster bin, and have it delivered to your home. Then you and a few friends can hump all of that unwanted stuff and toss it into the dumpster easily. When it is full we will haul it to the local waste management recycling centre, and return it quickly for another load. It may take a day, or even a weekend, but when you are finished you will not only have reclaimed your home, but you won’t be spending thousands of dollars keeping clutter in your home.
