Summer in Southern Ontario is when we come alive, and ever since the pandemic hit us like a tidal wave our homes have increasingly become our refuge. However, global plague aside, we love summer because that is the time when we are able to get our hands dirty and really dig into those projects that we have been planning all winter long.

Homeowners in Southern Ontario love their properties, and we use them for everything in the summer from firing up the bbq, entertaining friends and family, hanging out on our patios or putting in a swimming pool. Summers are great, and we love spending them in our backyards.

Many of our customers are planning landscaping projects this summer, like they do every year. Summer is when the hammers start flying, and people are able to tear up the earth for fresh new landscaping, removing and renovating outdoor architecture, replacing their driveways, putting on a new patio or deck (in many cases removing an old one), digging a pool and the list goes on.

If this is your first time planning a landscaping project, then you probably have a to-do list. You will have contacted a few landscaping companies or specialist companies depending on your projects like driveways, patios, pools etc, received some quotes, pulled the permits and are gearing up for that exciting summer project that will breathe new life (and add value) to your home.

Since you are here on the Clean Er Up website and reading this article, then you have already had the foresight to plan ahead and think about what size of a dumpster bin you will need to remove all of that material. Here is our advice on what size dumpster to choose, and how we break it down:

It probably goes without saying that the size of the dumpster you will require is directly proportional to the amount, size and weight of the material to be removed combined with how many truckloads it will take to remove everything. For example, you know how much garbage fits into an average sized bag, and you know how much weight they can handle before you need to split the weight into two bags. The same is naturally true of a dumpster bin. For example if you are simply clearing old and tearing down an old shed, then you will probably be fine with our 4 yard or 10 yard bins. A shed is relatively small and light, but it is broken down into big pieces, so the bin size will depend on the size of the shed.

If you are preparing for a large scale project, like putting in a pool or removing an old patio and replacing it with a new one then you can simply skip ahead and order one of our larger 16 yard or 20 yard bins, and expect several truckloads to remove everything.

Projects of these scales create a massive amount of material. So much so that homeowners are always surprised at home much there is to be removed, so you don’t want to underestimate the amount of material we will be hauling away.
