Replacing A Roof In Hamilton, Ontario

The roof of your home takes a beating during the winter in Hamilton, Ontario. Year in, and year out it gets covered with snow and ice, which then thaws and cracks, refreezes and repeats the cycle over and over every winter. This takes a huge toll on our shingles and sub-roof, until after a while we discover cracks and leaks.

Replacing your roof has many advantages. It is a great home renovation for the spring and summer months because workers can get their job done easily, quickly and safely compared to the winter when your roof is like a skating rink. A new roof will look great, add value to your home and it also has environmental benefits. Even if it isn’t leaking water just yet, you can be assured that your old roof is definitely leaking hot and cold air, which means a higher energy bill. Leaving your old roof unrepaired is like trying to insulate it with fishnet stockings. It’s not going to work, and you are better off simply getting it done sooner than later so you can lower your monthly energy bills and enjoy a more temperature controlled environment.

Tearing that old roof off means you are going to need to rent a disposal bin that can be rolled off a truck, and placed on your driveway so workers can easily access it from above. You will almost certainly need a large bin because even if you have a smaller bungalow sized home, removing a roof means a ton of unwanted material and debris that has to be safely removed and disposed of at a local recycling centre.

Depending on the size of your home, you can probably expect to require more than one truckload of material to be removed, so when you order your bin online, you can schedule pickups and deliveries at time that is convenient for you. This way your full dumpster bin can be picked up, cleaned out and replaced as quickly as possible so your crew can continue with their jobs and have your new roof done quickly and efficiently.

Replacing a roof can take anywhere from a couple of days to a week or more depending on the size of your home, and most people tend to have their roofs replaced during the spring and summer months. You will want to plan ahead and get a couple of quotes from roofing companies in advance of spring, and book your disposal bin as early as possible. This way you will have all of your ducks in line when the weather warms up and the hammers start to fly.

Decluttering Tips For Bin Rentals In Hamilton, Ontario

Spring is almost here and thousands of homeowners in Hamilton, Ontario are spending their spare time planning a weekend of cleaning out their homes and doing a deep spring-clean.

We love spring cleaning because it allows you to totally rediscover and reinvent your home. You suddenly find loads of untapped space in your closets, spare room, basement, garage, shed and kitchen. All of that space that way previously being used as storage space for unwanted stuff can now be remodeled into anything you want. The basement was full of old unwanted stuff? Now it can be turned into a home entertainment room, a home office, or a gym. Really, it can be anything of your choosing and it is like putting an addition on your home, that is totally free.

We have offered a few spring cleaning tips in other articles, and here are a few of our ideas on how to make decluttering your home a much easier.

Go Deep

We have all heard the term “Out of sight out of mind” right? It certainly applies to our homes and unwanted stuff that accumulated over the years. We kept all of these things in our storage areas because we thought we might need it one day, but we forgot why. Remember that massive old school big screen you put in the garage 10 years ago? Do you really think you will be using it again? Nope. You really won’t. The same goes for that couch the in laws asked you to store, but they forgot about and those golf clubs you kept despite only playing the game once every 5 years.

Go Even Deeper: Nooks And Crannies

When you are digging through your closets and deciding to toss out your pleated jeans and old bowling shoes, go deeper and check the shelves. You will find loads of brand new space in your bedroom and kitchen closets when you look up high and go through the shelves and drawers. If you think of it as square footage, it adds up quickly and you can repurpose that space to store things you actually want to keep and have easy access to when you need it. Plus it is also a great excuse to hit up the retailers and pick up a few things you have always wanted, but never felt you had space for.

Forgotten In Plain Sight

You have to give it up to Marie Kondo. She really knows what she is talking about. Her axiom of “if you don’t love it, get rid of it” are words to live by, and this especially applies to furniture.

Your floor space is filled with furniture that you navigate every day and never really think about very much. However, if you take a good honest look around at all of your furniture, artwork, accent pieces etc, ask yourself if you really love it. If the answer is no, then it’s time to get rid of it.

These are just a few ideas to help you inventory your next spring cleaning project. It will also help you decide on a dumpster bin size when you order with us online. However, we suggest that if you aren’t entirely sure of what size bin you need to order, then you should contact us and we will be happy to suggest the ideal bin size for your next project.

Landscaping Tips For Hamilton Disposal Bin Rentals

You can pull off a landscaping project on just about any budget ranging from digging up a few new spaces for gardens, to putting in a new pool, a deck or some architectural landscaping. No matter the size or scope of your project, a landscaping project during the spring or summer is a great way to clean up your property and do some upgrading.

When you are planning your next landscaping project, you will need to decide on what sized dumpster bin you will need to rent for the job. Landscaping projects always create a massive amount of debris, unwanted material and dirt to be removed, so we suggest you speak to one of our professional team members about the size and scope of your project and then choose from one of our 4 bin sizes which you can easily order online.

If you have questions regarding what you can and cannot dispose of in one of our roll-off dumpster bins, you can use the bin to dispose of:

• Old decking, fencing and lumber

• Lawn clippings

• Old patio furniture

You cannot use disposal bins for any hazardous material like solvents, old paint, motor oils etc.

When we deliver your roll-off disposal bin, we will need to place it on a hard surface that is roughly 16 feet wide, like a driveway or concrete pad. We also place our bins on custom-made wooden planks, so they never leave a lasting impression on your property. If you want to place your bin on the street, then make sure there are no vehicles parked in the space you want us to drop it off, and be sure to check with the city regarding any permits that you may need to keep it there. By-laws in Hamilton, Ontario vary from town to town, so make sure you are following the local laws.

The temperatures are rising in Hamilton, Ontario, and residents are busy finalizing their plans for this year’s landscaping project. Having your roll-off disposal bin plans sorted out in advance is a great way to make sure your next project is completed on schedule and goes as smoothly as possible, because as much as you may enjoy getting out in the sun and rolling up your sleeves, we’re certain you want to get that pool finished so you can spend the rest of the summer enjoy relaxing weekends in the sun.

Saving Tips For Cheap Bin Rentals In Toronto

At the time of this writing, it is February here in Toronto, Ontario and the coldest day of the year (so far). There is a fresh pot of strong black coffee to the right of this laptop, and a warm flannel is keeping the remaining chill off. Suffice to say, the last thing most people are doing today is spring cleaning their home.

However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be starting to plan ahead.

Spring is almost here, and that means homeowners across Toronto, Ontario are beginning to plan their next home renovation, landscaping, construction or spring cleaning project. They are putting the pieces together, coming up with a plan and calculating the cost of their next home improvement project.

If you are planning a spring cleaning project, you will almost certainly require one of our dumpster bins to haul away all of your unwanted stuff.

When you rent one of our dumpster bins, you are able to choose from one of our 4 available sizes and order online. If you are unsure about which size you need, then we suggest you contact us and we will offer you our best suggestion. Once it is ordered and a delivery time is scheduled, all you have to do is prepare all of your unwanted stuff for removal.

This is one great way to save on the cost, and effort of a spring cleaning.

Here are a few more great tips to save on your costs and labour during your decluttering:

Curbside It

If you have old and unwanted stuff that could use a new home, you can always curbside it. For example, if you have an old china cabinet that simply doesn’t go with your other furniture, but somebody else might love it, then you can place a free ad on a marketplace website and make it available for other people to pick up for free. It’s a great way to pay it forward, and it is one less thing you have to toss into our bin.

Yard Sale

Before you toss your stuff in our bin, why not make a few extra bucks and have a yard sale? You would be amazed at home many people want that bread maker you have only used once. A yard sale is a perfect way to thin out how much stuff you are getting rid of, and you can use the cash for some new pieces for your home. It’s win-win.

Spring cleaning your home doesn’t have to be a huge chore, and renting a dumpster bin makes life much easier because you won’t have to deal with disposing of all of your unwanted stuff by yourself.
Then once your project is all done, you can sit back and enjoy your fresh, clean home and look forward to summer.

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

Planning A New Patio For The Spring In Burlington, Ontario? We Have You Covered.

In the film Field of Dreams Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner hears a strange whisper that says “If you build it, they will come.”

Hey thanks stranger and your disembodied voice, but what am I supposed to build?

A barn?

A zeppelin?

A statue of Gord Downey?

If you live in Burlington,Ontario then you already know the answer, and it isn’t a cornfield. It’s a patio.

Canadians love patios. It doesn’t matter what city or province you live in, we have a universal love of our patios, and we take a huge amount of pride in them.

Our patios are an extension of our homes that tend to only get used and enjoyed in the string and summer. That is probably what makes them so special to us. When springtime arrives, and we thaw ourselves out, we are able to go outside after months of being stuck indoors like stacked cord wood, we can finally get outside with our friends and family and enjoy the warmth of the sun with a cold drink and bbq.

Most homeowners who are planning a new patio, or who are tearing out an old one and replacing it tend to do it as soon as spring arrives. You can always hear the saws and hammers on the first nice day of spring as homeowners everywhere waste zero time getting to work on their patio. We only have a couple of months to enjoy them, so we want them done right away.

Building a patio is a great way to open up the living space of your home, and increase your property value. Additionally, even if you are doing it as a DIY project, they aren’t terribly difficult to execute if you have some previous construction skills. You can find full scale plans online with detailed lists of all the tools and materials you will need to buy or rent, and step-by-step instructions that will guide you through the process. You will just need a weekend with good weather, a few buddies who know how to swing a hammer, use a skill saw, an auger and can pour some concrete. Sounds easy enough right?

One thing that is frequently overlooked is the amount of unwanted material and debris from a patio project, especially if you are tearing down an existing one and replacing it.

Construction and home renovation experts always put dumpster bins at the top of their to-do list because they allow their workers to do their jobs in a clean, uncluttered and safe workplace. This greatly helps the job run more smoothly, and for it to be completed on time.

One of the most common things we hear from even seasoned DIYers is they underestimated how much debris and material is created by a patio project. For first timers, it always greatly exceeds their expectations. We suggest that when you are in the planning stages of your patio project this season, you contact us with details about your project and we will help you choose from one of our 4 bin sizes which you can then order online. We schedule deliveries and pickups, so we can drop it off and remove it at a time that is most convenient for you. This will help your project run as seamlessly as possible, and be completed on budget so you can get to what is important, enjoying your new space with your buddies and family who helped you build it.

What Not To Do When Renting A Dumpster

What Not To Do When Renting A Dumpster

Winter is almost over for Canadians and we at Clean Er Up Bin Rentals know you want to get your project completed. Whether it’s a household cleanout, renovation or an end of tenancy cleaning, it’s understandable to get as much done as possible considering how cold it is outside. With temperatures sometimes reaching as low as -30°C, it’s tempting to over heap contents into a dumpster. I mean hey, who wants to be outside in the cold weather, but work has to get done regardless and we’re here to help guide you through the process of what NOT to do when renting a dumpster so you don’t have to work twice!

Over heaping Dumpsters

First and foremost, over heaping isn’t good for our driver’s safety and it’s not good for when they have to tarp the bin. Going past the Fill Line carries a fine of $200 as the driver has to stop the normal flow of work and has to start taking debris out of the bin that is poking out. It’s also illegal for dumpster rental companies to haul any containers that have debris sticking out. Along with the fact of tarping, it’s already time consuming to put a tarp onto a dumpster by yourself never mind having to first take out debris and then starting to put the tarp on. Can you imagine having to do that to every bin you come across? It would be a nightmare. Also, when one our drivers comes to pick up your dumpster rental and the dumpster is over heaping, it slows down our order flow as the driver has several orders to fulfill and slowing down isn’t fun for anyone involved. One of our goals at Clean Er Up Bin Rentals is to always be on time for pick up and drop off for all customers involved so everyone has a great experience.

Dry Run

This one really isn’t fun at all as a dry run can be confusing for both parties involved. A Dry Run charge occurs when an order is scheduled out and when it comes time to fulfill that order it is either

A- Cancelled by the customer

Or

B- A random occurrence stops the driver from being able to fulfill the order (car blocking access to the dumpster bin)

Before you call for a pickup please make sure the driver has access to the bin so the driver doesn’t have to either call you or the office to find out what’s going on with the pickup. When an order is scheduled to be fulfilled, the driver is going to be there on time to remove the bin but when the bin cannot be removed a Dry Run Fee is charged at a rate of $100

Hazardous Material/Spill/Batteries

When filling up your dumpster rental, the first thing that comes to mind is to just throw out all of your “garbage” that’s been sitting around for a long time. Make sure you read our Terms of Lease to have an understand what can or can’t go inside the dumpster not only for your safety but for the safety of the economy and our drivers. Certain material is considered hazardous to the environment and should not be disposed of inside our dumpster rentals. We’re trying to help the earth by bringing your garbage directly to a recycling plant so they can sort through the recyclables and any hazardous material slows down the process of recycling. When going through your chosen debris to throw out, please don’t throw any paint inside the bins as the paint will stain the inside of the bins and a fee of $450 will be charged so we can have the bin re-painted and cleaned by a 3rd party company. Paint spills are really unfortunate for us as a company and for your driveway so be sure to be careful with what you put inside the bin rental or the paint contents could end up spilling on your driveway! Last but not least is batteries. Batteries tend to leak out heavy metals and is not good for the recycling facility to handle as it contaminates the good high quality recyclable material making it not so recyclable anymore.

As you can see, we care about our customers and want the best for everyone so please be fair to our bins and we will always deliver the exceptional service you trust in at Clean Er Up Bin Rentals. If you have any questions or concerns about what can or can’t go inside one of our dumpster rentals feel free to email us at the bottom of the website or give us a call.

Landscaping Bin Rentals In Ancaster, Ontario

Springtime is landscaping time here in Ancaster, Ontario, and homeowners all across the region are currently planning their spring landscaping project.

Let’s begin by saying that “landscaping project” is a very broad term that can mean many things. It can mean putting on a new deck, or tearing out an old one and replacing it, or putting in a pool, creating stone or concrete outdoor architecture, digging new gardens, re-sodding your lawn or even trench excavations. You could probably even include repaving your driveway on that list.

While all of these projects may vary in size and scope, we can tell you from years of experience that every landscape project means an absolutely huge amount of dirt, rocks, stones, concrete and other debris to be removed. We cannot stress enough how much dirt we will have to haul away for something like putting in a new pool.

For example, consider the measurements of your new pool, then consider that it will be anywhere from 10ft-18ft deep. Now think about all of that soil, bedrock and loose debris in your living room. It won’t fit. In fact, it probably won’t fit in your entire main floor.

Since you simply cannot take that amount of dirt and dispose of it on your property like Andy Dufresne spreading around some concrete wall in The Shawshank Redemption, you are going to need our largest 20 yard dumpster bin, and you can probably expect us to haul away roughly 6 truckloads of soil.

The same can be said about a smaller project like creating a new garden and re-sodding your lawn. These are very common spring landscaping projects that create a massive amount of dirt and debris to be removed. To once again use the living room analogy, think of your entire lawn in your living room. It won’t fit, so again, you will want our 20 yard dumpster bin and can expect at least 4 truckloads to be removed.

We offer these examples as a helpful guide so you know what to expect when you hire us to provide a dumpster bin for your next project.

Landscaping projects are very common among homeowners in Ancaster, Ontario, but they aren’t something we tend to do every year, so they aren’t something we are immediately familiar with and the logistics involved with them.

A successful project is one that is carried out as seamlessly as possible and on budget. If you are tearing down an old, worn out deck and replacing it, you will have many moving parts to consider. You will have workers doing their jobs, materials being delivered, people coming and going and of course, a lot of material and debris to be removed.

We suggest that if you are planning a landscaping project this spring, that you get in contact with us and tell us the details. That way we can offer you our very best advice on what size bin you will require, how many truckloads you can expect and have a better idea of the cost and scheduling of your deliveries and pickups. This will help make for an easier and seamless project that will help keep you on time and on budget.

Garbage Bin Rental in Hamilton, Ontario

For any construction or home improvement project, there’s always a junk problem. 

Whether you’re ripping stuff out, working with a new construction or you just have a lot of junk that needs to make its way to the local recycling or disposal center, garbage bin rental in Hamilton can help keep your worksite manageable and also take care of the tricky aspect of seeing all that junk off.

Just call us and tell us how much junk you have or what size container you’d like and we’ll show up with a dumpster bin at your Hamilton worksite, ready for immediate loading. Once you’ve filled your dumpster, let us know and we’ll return and haul it all away.

How do you price your bins?

All our garbage bin rentals in Hamilton are priced according to the number of days a rental is needed and the loaded bin weight after you’ve filled it with your junk. Bin rentals are reserved for 1, 3, 7, 10 and 14 days. If you need to rent a dumpster in Hamilton, Ontario for more than two weeks, please contact us.

Clean fill bins are not charged by weight, only the number of rental days.

What size bins do you rent?

Currently, we’ve standardized on four main bin types. Our smallest bin rental in Hamilton, Ontario is a 4 yard bin (12′ long, 5′ wide, 2′ high), but we also have 10 yard bins (12′ long, 5′ wide, 5′ high), 16 yard bins (12′ long, 6′ wide, 5′ high) and 20 yard bins (12′ long, 8′ wide, 6′ high).

Multiple garbage bins can be rented if one isn’t enough, or we can also remove a bin and return it if you have a continuing junk removal need.

How can I determine the dumpster size I need?

While those that have rented a dumpster or two before may be able to estimate the dumpster size they’ll need before starting, dumpster selection itself is more art than science. Each job is different, and a 10 yard dumpster bin rental in Hamilton may be perfect for one job but inadequate for another. 

However, we can say that smaller garage or attic cleanout jobs should be fine with a 4 or 10 yard bin. Larger 16 and 20 yard bins are better for renovation projects, while the largest bins are typically reserved for commercial projects.

If you have any doubts as to the dumpster size you need, contact us and we’ll help you obtain the right sized dumpster for the job.

How should I load my dumpster rental?

Like any loading project, we recommend loading our dumpsters with the heaviest and largest items first so that weight can be spread out evenly throughout the garbage bin. Smaller and lighter junk should be placed on top, but be careful not to overload the dumpster. No material should be hanging over the sides or peeking out the top. 

We won’t be able to remove a garbage bin rental in Hamilton if it’s not safe for the trek to the recycling center.

Where do you take all the junk?

All the contents of our dumpster bin rentals in Hamilton are taken to Recycle City in Hamilton, Ontario. They take care of all the sorting, recycling and disposal, and we take the empty bin back to headquarters to get it ready for another rental.

With the convenience of online ordering (as well as phone orders), Clean Er Up Bin Rentals is the best place to order a garbage bin rental in Hamilton today. Call us or book online now.

A Bin for All Projects

There are many reasons that people need large garbage bins. Our garbage bins, which come in four sizes (4 yard, 10 yard, 16 yard, and 20 yard), are heavy-duty and sturdy enough for as much abuse as you can dish out. 

Whether you’re renovating a house and doing extensive demolition that will all need to be hauled away, or whether you’re cleaning up an unkempt yard and need to cut down a few trees and dig out some stumps, these bins will hold whatever you can throw at them. Our customers use them when cleaning out old houses, when tearing off a roof, when ripping up a lawn, and sometimes when they simply need to empty a particularly messy garage that’s gotten out of control. 

Anywhere in Burlington, Ontario, where you need to haul something to the dump and don’t know how to do it, just call us. You’ll just have to load the garbage bin, which we’ll drop off in your driveway or yard, and then you fill it as high and deep as you’d like, and we’ll haul it away.

The garbage bins are priced based on size and the number of days that they’re at your property. There are also fees associated with overloading the bin in terms of weight.

Yard and Driveway Protection, and Clean Up

Don’t worry about our garbage bins messing up and damaging your property. When we come to drop off the bin, we don’t merely drop it onto the driveway: we properly protect the driveway with lumber so that the heavy bin will not dig into the cement or asphalt. Our bins move on that lumber on rollers so that there is never a sharp point digging into your drive. We clean up the lumber, take the bin, and we’re on our way, leaving you with a newly emptied house or yard.

The bins are taken to Recycle City, in Hamilton, Ontario, and from there they sort through everything in the bin to dispose, recycle, or mulch the contents.
