    Questions to Ask When Renting a Dumpster

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you are planning a project that will generate lots of trash such as a renovation, home addition or roofing you are probably considering renting a dumpster.  If you aren't experienced in dumpster rentals there are a few questions that you need to ask to ensure you are getting a fair deal and will have a good experience.

    • To begin with, you are better off calling a "bin rental" company rather than a "junk removal" company if all you are looking for is a bin to throw your junk into.   A junk removal company may be more suitable if you are looking for assistance in loading up your junk but they tend to cost more.  “Junk removal” companies typically charge by the volume, whereas “bin rental” companies usually charge by the weight which is more accurate and better value. 
    • Ask how they charge for the weight of your trash.  If a company charges by the pound do the math, initially it may appear to be a good deal but compared to reputable companies that charge by the ton it’s actually much more expensive.
    • Be sure to get a firm commitment on when they will deliver and pick up your bin.  Choose a company with flexible and reliable pick-up and delivery.  Hiring a small company with a limited number of bins could lead to you waiting for a bin to be available, a definite inconvenience. 
    • Talk to an expert to determine what type of bin is right for your job.  There are many different shapes and sizes of dumpster bins and getting the right one can make your job much easier. 

    Budget Environmental in Hamilton Ontario has been in the business for more than 20 years.  Serving the Golden Horseshoe, Budget can deliver the same day for any order placed before noon.  Budget has more than 800 bins to choose from and a team of experts to guide you ensuring that you get the right bin for the job.  We have a full range of bins from mini-rolloffs and rolloffs to lugger bins.

    Below is the 2nd video that was compiled from hundreds of hours of footage of the demolition of Ivor Wynne stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.  Budget Environmental of Hamilton was given the responsibility of the task and the job was completed over the winter of 2012/2013.  Budget has been involved in the demolition industry since 1995 and as a proud member of the Hamilton community it was an honour to be part of this project involving one of Hamilton's most iconic locations.

    It's difficult to see the end of the Ivor Wynne era.  So many great memories from the 1972 Grey Cup victory by the hometown Ticats to Pigskin Pete, the Box J boys and the list could go on and on.  Ivor Wynne had it's own personality unlike any other venue anywhere.  That said, I'm sure once the new stadium is in place we'll all appreciate the improved facilities and amenities that come along with it.

    The stadium is uniquely located right in a neighbourhood without the mass parking that you typically see at a sports arena or stadium, and that's not changing.  When you drive in on game day you see locals renting out space on their lawns for parking.  Recently the city of Hamilton has been looking at tightening laws relating to parking on lawns.  Thankfully they've decided (for now at least) to give the area around the stadium exempt status so the lawn parking tradition will continue.  Just another piece of the character that makes up the Hamilton football experience.

    Permanent Front Lift Bins

    Last updated 1 year ago

    While assessing your business needs for waste disposal, consider the practical option of a permanent front lift bin.  If properly fitted, a front lift bin can save you thousands annually, and provide a clean, quick and convenient option for your waste disposal.

    First, look at the amount and type of waste you produce.  The cheapest service option may not be the best and most cost saving option.  Your business waste could be partly commodity, part waste.  Does your work place produce a large amount of cardboard, more then actual rubbish?  Cardboard is a commodity and should be treated as one.  It may be beneficial to have two bins, one larger bin for cardboard, and one smaller bin for rubbish.  In doing this you may be able to save dollars per month.  Yes, having two bins could be more cost effective then one.   Also, look at the volume of waste that you produce and determine the correct size and service frequency.  Getting a small bin serviced many times per month may not be as good of a deal as getting a large bin less frequently.  Always figure out the amount of dollars per yard you are paying, regardless of the frequency, and based on this formula, what is best for your location.

    Second, assess the need for a recycling bin.  This bin can be an effective way to cut down on the amount of rubbish you produce, and reduce the strain on landfills.   A recycling bin can take most of the materials that can be recycled, without separating them at your location.  No more keeping paper and cans separate.  Simply throw everything in one bin and we will take care of the separation. 

    What about contracts?  Should you be scared of them?  Contracts are a security for both you the customer and us the service provider.  You are guaranteed a price for the life of the contract.  We are guaranteed a customer for the life of a contract.  You have the peace of mind that your bill will be the same for the contract term.  No guessing every month.  Your contract, if done properly, will protect you from the unknown of the future.  Set it and forget it. 

    Finally, when choosing a company to be your service provider for front lift bins, be sure to ask what the final bill is per month.  Base charges are exactly that, base charges.  Check for fuel surcharges and additional environmental surcharges.  All these should be factored in before you sign up for a bin. 

    If you have any questions or are not sure if a front lift type permanent bin is the right option for you, give us a call.  We would be glad to walk you through and explain the different options you have to truly find the most cost effective to manage your businesses waste.  We are experts in roll off containers, dumpsters and bins of all types in Southern Ontario.
