It Feels Spectacular to Clean!

It Feels Spectacular to Clean!

A lot of the time we focus on the work of cleaning. The how-to. Where to start, where to end. Who to invite.

Which spaces to clean …

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the details of the best tools to take down drywall, or the quickest way to remove old lumber, or places to take your recyclable goods.

We’ve even gotten distracted with a lot of information about how to get rid of items that are not safe to put in your dumpster.

But we have neglected to tell you just how good it feels to clean a space.

Cleaning liberates you

Finally cleaning a spot that has been tormenting you is a liberating feeling. Whether it is a garage that you haven’t been able to pull a car into, a room with an unsightly bulges in the drywall or ceiling, or a basement that has become a maze of shelves and broken objects, cleaning can help free your mind.

A clean space is a new space, and new spaces bring us new life.

Your mind races with possibilities. What can this place become? Only you hold the answer to that timeless mystery.

Interestingly, even as you were ignoring or pretending not to notice the space that needed cleaned, it weighed on you. When free time was available, you thought about the space and you wondered if you should be cleaning it.

So cleaning a space like this means that not only have you freed up actual space in your home, but you have also freed up mental space to take on big new projects.

Cleaning feels terrific

When you have cleaned a new space and transformed it into something new, the rush of adrenaline and endorphins through your bloodstream is a jolt like no other. Completing a major home project can make you feel an accomplishment similar to winning a sporting event, or achieving an accomplishment at work.

Those same powerful juices flow through your body as you sweep up the last debris from a major project and look at your work.

This new blank slate is a burst of energy.

Cleaning simply makes you feel great.

So rent a Big Daddy Dumpster for your special project and get to work with some home therapy today!

This Spring, Host a Neighborhood Clean-up

The snow has melted, the leaves are budding, and everyone in the neighborhood has fired up their lawnmowers and leaf blowers for another season of outdoor activity. You even see some new hardware on the block – Stan seems to have gotten a new push mower, and Michael’s apparently switched over to all electric tools.

Further up the street, Mrs. Cooper has plans to take out her trellis.

As you look at the clutter in your own garage, you realize that you might need a dumpster in order to get rid of all the crap you’ve accumulated over the years. The door you took out in the remodel? There’s no place for it in the house now, it is an orphan. That last 8 feet of quarter round? It’s now warped from being under the chicken wire. And the chicken wire? Bent and a little rusted from years of anticipation but no real duties.

Then a brilliant idea forms.

You could host a Neighborhood clean-up day

You’ve noticed that other people are in the same situation you are in. Their basements and garages are cluttered. (Well, not Trevor. Trevor’s is spotless, like everything else. But that’s how he deals with his own issues.) And they have projects they would like to do, but they just need a friendly shove in the right direction.

What if you announced a date, and got a few neighbors to go in on a dumpster for the neighborhood?

Suddenly you and your neighbors are sharing the cost of waste disposal, and providing a big push towards getting your neighborhood spruced up all at the same time.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Choose a date a month from now and circulate it through word of mouth or with a door flier
  • Ask people to let you know the things they hope to be able to throw away
  • Work with local re-use agencies like St. Vincent DePaul to set up a way to donate items that can still be used
  • Work with a Big Daddy Dumpster representative to determine the right size dumpster for whatever remains
  • Ask people to provide a contribution toward the dumpster.

When dividing the cost, don’t worry about precision and fair cost – you’ll never get the math to work out perfectly, and why would you want to? Instead, just ask people for what they think is fair. What you will find in the end is that you likely recover the full cost, and you have enough to buy food for a Saturday Evening cookout.

Rent a Dumpster Near Me

A common search phrase on Google is “rent a dumpster near me.” While this feels like it might be especially true this time of year, the search is relatively steady. It seems that people are always moving, renovating, cleaning out, or building.

 

We seem to always be generating the kind and amount of garbage that exceeds the capacity of our streetside containers.

 

So what is involved in renting a dumpster?

 

How much will you be throwing away?

Obviously, your first concern is the amount of garbage that you will be throwing away. With almost every home project it is self-evident that an extra trash can is not going to be enough to contain your waste.

 

By the time you’ve stripped wallpaper, taken out old drywall, thrown away old and now replaced plumbing or wiring, set a room up to be painted, and replaced furniture, you know your needs are great.

 

Most home renovations like this only require the smallest available dumpster.

 

But what if you’re redoing a whole floor, or a whole house? Or what if you’re doing new construction? Then you will need a larger dumpster, or a regular schedule for switching out dumpsters to keep your project moving.

 

What is “near me”?

The other important part of the calculation of renting a dumpster, and of this specific Google search, is the words “near me.”

 

Because we are used to running our own errands and tracking down our own supplies, many people who use Google to search for items, naturally add the words “near me” to every search as a habit. We might look for a “Home Depot near me” or to “buy a spud bar near me”  or “find a paint store near me.”

 

However, renting a dumpster is very different. You don’t have to go get it. You don’t have to empty it. You don’t have to take it back when you’re done.

 

The words “near me” in this search are helpful because they give you a range of local options, but they shouldn’t really affect your search too much. This is because the dumpster company you choose, like Big Daddy Dumpsters, will bring the dumpster to you.

 

And the transportation to and from your location will be covered in the standard cost, and will emptying it in the right landfill.

 

Sure, some dumpster companies will limit their work within a certain distance, but it is far further than you would think to drive for a good price on linoleum or a particular stone for your next project.

 

So the next time you ask Google “rent a dumpster near me,” remember that the terms are relative.

Spring Is Here! Organize a Life-Changing Garage Clean-out Day for Your Neighborhood

We have all been there. We have accumulated junk in our garage and basement for a couple of years, and we find ourselves at the awkward spot between too much to throw in the trash, but not enough to justify renting a dumpster.

 

Last year the solution was easy: you closed the door on the garage and ignored it for another year. Good for you – you found some time! But you did not solve the problem.

 

Well this year what if you try a different strategy?

 

This year, go together with your neighbors to organize a neighborhood clean-out day, and utilize the Big Daddy Dumpster three-day rental option. This will create a targeted, specific window of time for getting the work done, making it easier and more fun.

 

 

Garage clean-out challenges

There are lots of challenges involved in cleaning out your garage.

 

First, some of the things in your garage don’t belong in a dumpster. For instance, you should not put flammable liquids or biohazards in the dumpster, and you likely have a few gallons or more of these items in the back corner, over there beneath the shovels.

 

Second, some of the things you need to throw away are too heavy or too bulky to include in your regular trash. You can’t put that old lawnmower frame in the trash can. You need a little more space.

 

Third, some of the things you need to lift or move are pretty heavy.  that old door you removed in the basement remodel? You can probably move it yourself, but do you want to risk your back again?

 

These and other similar problems are solved by having a neighborhood garage clean out day.

 

 

A neighborhood garage clean-out day solves these problems

First, the problem of hazardous items.

 

It feels a little wasteful to carry one or two gallons of expired paint thinner and paint to the appropriate county drop-off location. But if you join together with your neighbors, suddenly you find that you have a small truckload. Now one person, or maybe two of you, are taking the trip for the whole neighborhood. Now you are building friendships, helping others out, and really building the spirit of community.

 

Second, bulky items. When you go together with your neighbors to split the expense of a dumpster, you help everyone dispose of all their bulky items at once.

 

Third, heavy items. Good news, everyone is working outside this weekend. And you neighbors who just lifted one heavy thing and threw it in the dumpster will be glad to help you with throwing something else in. That’s just the energy of a good, productive day.

 

Transform your community this summer with a three-day rental from Big Daddy Dumpsters for a neighborhood garage clean-out day!

A Big Spring Cleanout to Transform Your Life

The change of seasons from winter to spring can bring a huge boost to your mood. Extra sunlight, a little more heat, and days spent outside instead of trapped on the couch … it can feel transformative.

It is this transformative nature of spring that also prompts us to do a big spring cleaning around the house. A big clean out will transform your life when it gets rids of more than a year’s worth of clutter and trash.

A major spring cleaning weekend is an intense and quick way to roll up your sleeves and tackle the months of clutter that have been holding you back this winter.

Plan it out

Before you get going on your project, you will want to have a plan. Ask yourself these important questions:

  • Do I want to tackle the whole house? Or just a single floor? Or will one room be enough?
  • Who will I have available to help me and what will we need – a truck? A dumpster?
  • What cleaning supplies will I need, and do I have them?
    • Bucket
    • Sponges and mop
    • Towels
    • Puddy knife
    • Cleaning liquids
    • Gloves
    • Trash bags
  • How much time will it take to get the results I want?

Budget

You will want to consider your budget for this work. What can your budget afford, and how much better will it make you feel?

$50 – a few friends, supplies you already have, and a couple pizzas and beer at the end of the day.

$150 – for the new homeowner who has a lot to get rid of and few supplies, but who still wants pizza and beer for the crew

$500 – for when the cleaning will merge into something a bit more, like painting or remodeling

>$500 – remodeling with a lot of removal, including dumpster rental, and enough sponges for multiple people to be working on the same thing at once

Inventory

Take inventory of the things to be sold and then sell them using Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, or freecycle depending on what they are and the likely taker.

Remember, everything you sell is something you don’t have to take to the curb or throw in your dumpsters.

Finally, if you can’t sell a decent and working item, you can donate it to St. Vincent DePaul or other local charity. Letting those items have a second life feels good too.

Start

The important thing is to start early and enthusiastically on the appointed day. Nothing gets you moving like already being on the move!

Plan out the process based on the space available. Are you cleaning everything out in one sink? Clean that room last – no sense cleaning it twice!

Want an early win? Start with the easiest room and mark it finished as quickly as possible.

Rent A Dumpster Near Me

You or your company has a big project coming up. Maybe it’s a remodel or a demolition. Maybe it’s a building project.

You need a dumpster. Where to look?

Of course you can start with searching the big names in dumpster rentals.

1-800-Got-Junk?

1-800-Got-Junk is a national leader in dumpster and bag rental. They are able to be everywhere because they are a company that sells their brand as a franchise. Local owner-operators pay to use their branding and get their references, then do the work under their “Got Junk?” branding.

The Got Junk? brand received a lot of national attention for their involvement with the popular series Hoarders. In that series, psychologists and waste removal companies teamed up with family members to  address serious hoarding in the home of a loved one. the show Android a popular run, earning the got Junk brand a lot of publicity. while the company can supply labor, it cannot apply the kind of mental help that is necessary to get someone over clinical hoarding.

Hopefully that’s not what you need for your project!

You can click here to go to their website.

Waste Management

One of the nation’s largest dumpster and waste removal companies, their familiar green and yellow W & M logo can be seen almost everywhere in the United States. If you have ever seen a large green dumpster outside of a construction site, it was likely theirs.

Their national model seems attractive, but the moving company Move.org recently rated them 4 stars (out of 5) because of their “middle-of-the-road customer reviews.”

As is common with many dumpster rental companies, they are focused on providing you the last part of the puzzle – junk removal. You will need to apply the elbow grease to get the work done and get the debris out to the dumpster yourself.

Common Costs Added to A Dumpster Rental

When you buy any product or service it is not unusual to have additional costs added at the end.

However, most people don’t usually rent a dumpster. so those extra costs might surprise you if you aren’t prepared.

In the best-case scenario the company you rent from offers a single price that includes everything.

However that company takes on multiple costs in the process Falling Away what remains of your project.

Here are some common costs you might see added to your dumpster rental.

Common Dumpster Rental Costs

Taxes

Taxes are the most predictable cost with any purchase. and your locality these may include a sales tax and perhaps a service or Usage Tax. Even for companies that claim to provide one low price, the tax will be added as a separate final cost. They want to remind you that Uncle Sam, and not the company, is getting that money.

Distance Fees

Depending on the location of your project and the distance between your dumpster rental company and that project, you may be charged a distance fee. You should be informed of this upfront and it should not be a surprise that shows up on your bill later. The company must haul the dumpster to and from your location, and to the dump or landfill, so there are multiple considerations in assessing these fees.

Hazardous Materials Fees

A common pass-along fee that dumpster companies charge depends entirely on the type of materials you are placing in your dumpster. Every municipality has its own rules and costs for disposing of certain types of materials. For instance, some materials might have to go to a separate location that is further away, or that might require additional sorting. These items include concrete.

Insurance Coverage or Damage Protection

Another common expense that sometimes is billed separately is insurance coverage or damage protection. The insurance protects you in the case of something going wrong with the dumpster. This should generally be included in the price, but some companies will offer that to you as an additional cost. This may be required to be an additional cost, so the insurer knows that you have been informed and can collect the money directly.

The damage protection shields the dumpster company from liability in case there are deep scrapes or gouges when the dumpster is delivered or removed, or if other damage happens on the property that needs to be repaired.

Excess Weight

Even if everything goes as planned, a “one-price” company might surprise you with a final upcharge for excessive weight.  although your company May advertise their dumpsters on the basis of size, they typically are build at the junkyard based on weight. If you exceed the anticipated weight many companies will pass that charge on to you. You can ask as you rent if that could happen to you.

Typically companies take all of these things  into consideration when they are renting a dumpster to you. Being prepared and asking these questions upfront helps make sure there are no surprise additional costs to your project.

Your Big Daddy Dumpster Rental Experience

When it comes time to move a parent into an assisted living facility, someone must be deputized to handle the house and belongings. Often it is the person who lives the closest. Unfortunately, this person has become the de facto caretaker already, and the pain of loss and transition can make the moving experience emotionally challenging.

 

It is frustrating how little stuff a person gets to move with them into assisted living.

 

Even a cherished bed is going to be left behind for a safer, lower bed in the residences. Often people can keep their familiar dresser or a few small individual furniture pieces.

 

The scale of the work to clean the house out can become overwhelming.

 

There is furniture, clothing, old memories. Some of it you will keep and sort through, of course, but a lot of it needs to be thrown out.

 

The realtor won’t be any help. She will provide a tight timeline, and probably telling you that the only thing that sells slower than an empty house is one with outdated furniture and that “lived in” feel.

 

You might even need to take out carpets too. This could prove to be a huge job.

 

 

The right sized dumpster for the job

 

First, analyze which things might be useful at a thrift store, and how you could get it there. Your local St. Vincent DePaul will likely be helpful, agreeing to come pick up some items for a minimal fee. They might even sent over a couple of workers big enough to do most of the work themselves.

 

But you might still be left with a lot of stuff.

 

This is where renting a dumpster from Big Daddy Dumpsters come in handy.

 

You may have never rented one yourself, but the concept makes sense.

 

Go to their site to get some guidance on what size dumpster you needed.

 

For residential purposes they offer a 10 yard and 15 yard option. The 15 yarder might be large, but you don’t want to run the risk that the slightly smaller (10 yard) version won’t hold it all.

 

You will be amazed at how simple it is. The employee who answers the phone will be very accommodating, and help you work out a time to drop off and pick up the dumpster.

 

Now you have a timeline for your work that makes the realtor, your parent, and your siblings happy.

 

 

A Family Reunion of Sorts

Transitioning a loved one into a smaller, more supportive place is a hard time emotionally. But the whole process doesn’t have to be hard.

 

Spend a day with family sharing memories, tearing up carpets, and putting old furniture and useless items in a dumpster. It’s therapeutic.

 

Big Daddy Dumpsters can make their part easy. One phone call to set it up, and you can concentrate on everything else.
