Clean Er Up: Residential & Commercial Demolition

Spring and summer in Southern Ontario mean one thing: Construction season, and since the pandemic nightmare is now finally coming to an end, there are going to be more projects than ever during the next few years.


Many towns and cities in Southern Ontario are densely populated and as a result, when a new building or infrastructure project needs to be built, it frequently means that an existing structure needs to be demolished. For example, there may be an aging strip mall in a community that no longer attracts renters because the building is old and falling apart, so it makes their business look bad. That means that it is time to tear it down, and build a modern replacement which will attract higher paying renters. Out with the old, in with the new.


Demolishing a building or structure in Hamilton, Ontario is a fairly straightforward job, and there are 4 common methods to take a building down quickly so the area can be cleaned up and new work can begin. Admittedly, a couple of these methods are for larger buildings and structures, but they are the most popular, so here we go.


Blow It Up:


We have all seen those cool shows where an old Vegas hotel is due to be demolished and replaced, so the natural answer is to demolish it with a controlled implosion that destroys the building’s primary vertical supports, causing the building to collapse onto itself from the inside out. This might be a little over the top if you are simply planning on getting rid of an old shed, or garage, but it sure would be fun. Even if all of your neighbors call you a crazy hillbilly when you’re done.


High Reach Arm:


A high reach arm can reach up to 66 ft, and when it is fitted to an excavator with a demolition tool like cutting shears or jackhammer, it can make short work of concrete, brick and steel structures. Clean Er Up Demolition has all of the proper equipment to help make your residential & commercial demolition projects run smoothly.


A Wrecking Ball:


No, it’s not just a Miley Cyrus song. It is that huge 13,500 pound ball that is suspended on a cable from a crane or other heavy equipment. The ball is either dropped onto or swung into the structure, simply crushing the building with repeated blows, not unlike a bad relationship.


Selective Or Strip-Out Demolition:


This is a popular method of demolition because it is a green solution that allows a team to strip a building and recycle as much of the interior as possible. Copper wire for example is completely stripped and recycled. It helps keep the cost of the project down, and much of the material that is removed can be reused.


As with all demolition projects, you will need a roll-off disposal dumpster bin, and since it is going to be a big job regardless of the size of the structure, be sure to order one or more of the largest bins available.

Where Does All Of The Garbage Go To?

You eat food and throw away the wrapper, sneeze on a tissue and throw it away, tear off old roofs and then dispose of the roofing materials and at first you don’t think of it but then it hits you and you ask yourself, “Where does all of the garbage go to? Well you came to the right place to find that answer!

How Is Trash Collected In The First Place?

When it comes to construction projects, demolition and home renovations, temporary dumpster rentals are the right fit. There are 4 different types of temporary containers to help collect all of the disposal debris.

1. Lugger Bins

Lugger Bins are mainly used for demolition and scrap metal recycling services as it’s a lot easier to dispose the debris with an excavator or even with a bobcat skid steer. Lugger Bins are the least common out of the 4 and are rarely chosen.

 2. Hook Lift Bins

Hook Lift Bins are the most popular choice for house hold debris, gardening, roofing projects, and large home renovations. Clean Er Up Bin Rentals offers hook lift bins to customers throughout Southern Ontario and our trucks are able to get into alley ways where as other companies wouldn’t even dare! The best part about hook lift bins is the versatility that comes with them in the first place and they can be placed virtually anywhere on your property, even on slopes!

3. Roll Off Containers

Have you ever drove around and seen dumpsters at a city dump or even on construction site? Those are most likely going to be a roll off container due to the fact that they are mainly manufactured as 30 yard containers and 40 yard containers. The real benefits to roll off containers is that they can hold more weight in them due to the fact that on each truck that carries roll offs, has a cable attached to the truck which weighs way less. Roll off containers are used by the big boys in the waste management industry because they are the most popular for new development projects, huge demolition jobs and restaurant gut outs, which means more money for them!

4. Front Loading Dumpsters

There are several ways that trash is collected and it differs from industry to industry.  Shopping malls, restaurants, and fast food joints all have similar waste management dumpsters to help with the waste removal needs. These industries usually rely on Front Loading Dumpsters that you’ll find scattered throughout the premise in shopping malls or behind local restaurants/ fast food joints.On the inside of shopping malls mainly, you’ll find temporary garbage can rentals to which all the garbage is transported out in black garbage bags and placed inside of the front loading dumpster.

Where is the garbage taken to after disposal?

Most trash is picked up by several companies that have a contract with the city for certain areas in regards to trash collection. These types of services are scheduled weekly and vary depending on the weather conditions.


1. Transfer Stations

Waste transfer stations generate between 5000- 110,000 tons of waste every year and are responsible for making sure the cities waste collection is running smoothly. Transfer Stations offer considerable benefits for homeowners and waste collection owner/operators alike in regards to the time it takes for disposal compared with waiting for long line ups at the traditional landfills. The benefits include, shorter lineups, closer proximity to home, increased fuel savings, less traffic congested at landfills/roads, and reduced air pollution.

2. Recycling Centers

Yes that is correct, recycling centers play a huge roll in the economy of garbage collection. There are several facilities located near transfer stations that help with recycling products such as cardboard, plastics, wood and many more. Recycling Centers are a key success to keeping more garbage piling up at the landfills. The biggest recycling businesses located in major cities would be metal recycling as metal can recycled infinitely over and over again.

3. Landfill

“Where the garbage goes to die” ,eventually when all of the garbage has been sorted through, this is where the remainder of the garbage ends up. Landfills are the last process in the waste management industry with todays technology as we’re headed towards incinerators along with renewable energy. Eventually landfills will cease to exist in the near future but for now they are a holding place for everyone’s garbage. Throughout Canada there are 2400 active landfills with Keele Valley Landfill being the largest.



Dumpster Rental Expectation vs. Reality

Dumpster Rental Expectation vs. Reality

Whether you’ve got a do-it-yourself (DIY) home renovation project on your hands or an eye toward a new patio, you’re probably wondering what you’re supposed to do with all the associated debris.

Maybe you’re considering hauling it all yourself, or maybe you’re considering renting a dumpster.

In this blog, we answer all of your biggest Ontario rental questions, as well as breaking down some common myths along the way.

Read on to learn about Ontario dumpster rental expectations vs. reality.

Do I Need a Dumpster for My Project?

Expectation: No! There’s no way my project can generate enough debris that I would need a dumpster. And if I do, my contractor will rent it for me.

Reality: We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but if you’re undertaking any sort of major renovation or construction project, you’re going to want to rent a dumpster.

Hauling your own debris is costly, timely, and exhausting. Ask your contractor if they would prefer that you rent a dumpster rather than relying on them to manage the process. You want your renovation project to be as seamless as possible, so supplying all of the tools your contractor needs can make the job that much easier for all parties involved.

Is Renting a Dumpster Insanely Expensive?

Expectation: Dumpsters are huge repositories found on construction sites and are reserved exclusively for professionals. There’s no way I can afford a dumpster for my small project.

Reality: Ontario dumpster rental isn’t expensive. Depending on size, you can score a three-day dumpster rental for as little as $290.

Speaking of size, here are some common measurements, uses, and associated pricing to help you determine which dumpster is right for your project.

4 Yard

Small but mighty, this dumpster is perfect for sand, concrete, soil, topsoil, sod, and rip-rap. Starting at $290 for a three-day rental, you can’t go wrong with this option.

10 Yard

Perfect for smaller renovation projects, this dumpster can haul debris from small roof replacement, small porch replacement, and many other projects. For $290 for three days, this dumpster is perfect for that room reno you’ve been dreaming of.

16 Yard

Perfect for your larger projects, this dumpster can handle large house cleanouts, as well as large roofing projects. Starting at just $350 for seven days, there’s no reason to put off that roof replacement any longer.

20 Yard

The biggest, baddest dumpster of them all is made to haul the most debris from any residential project or complete household cleanout. At just $400 for ten days, this big boy is a big deal.

Is Renting a Dumpster Complicated?

Expectation: Renting a dumpster is hard. I have to shop around, compare prices, and make sure I’ve found the right size for my project.

Reality: Dumpster rental in Ontario doesn’t have to be complicated.

Will renting a Dumpster ruin my driveway?

Expectation: I’ll have to deal with cracks in my driveway, as well as residual dirt and rust after the dumpster is hauled away!

Reality: We offload our dumpster neatly and efficiently, putting a board between your driveway and the dumpster. Our dumpsters are well maintained, meaning they won’t be an eyesore and you won’t have to worry about dirt or rust.

Heads up, in the summertime when the heat index increases it can cause asphalt to become softer than usual. That will sometimes result in indentations in your driveway. In the winter this isn’t an issue so keep that in mind! (This impacts asphalt only – concrete is immune!).
