Rent a Dumpster for Your Massive 4th of July Party

You’ve rented the tents. You’ve ordered the ice cream. You’ve designated who will bring the ice, and who will bring firewood.

You have planned a birthday party for America that the country, and certainly your friends and family, will not soon forget.

You’re going to make a mess, and you don’t want to make dozens of extra trips hauling full garbage bags to the curb. Or worse, you don’t want all that mess sitting in your garage or back yard for days until garbage pickup day – a day that has been delayed because of the holiday.

You should rent a dumpster.

Why a dumpster is a better option

Sure, you could just buy a bunch of trash bags. After all, you will have help cleaning up. Aunts and uncles, friends and neighbors will all be willing to take a bag or two and walk around the area.

But then what?

Where will you put them? This is not ordinary trash.

After all, most of what made it a fabulous, unforgettable blowout party is also what will bring raccoons and cats, flies and bees, and all sorts of other critters to the pile of trash.

You will want to put those bags in a dumpster.

Designed to save you time and energy in just this sort of situation, a dumpster will also save you headaches and even greater mess.

If you tried to shove all those bags into your trash cans, you would run out of trash cans. Additionally, a lot of communities have limits on how much trash they will pick up at one location on trash day.

Worse yet, even if you could leave all those bags piled up on the curb, one night of neighborhood critters could create a massive mess as the critters attempt to open, eat, and drag those bags back home to their young ones. It could end up looking like a bomb went off, even after your efforts to clean everything up.

In this case, while renting a dumpster might incur a little extra expense, it more than makes up for it in making a more enjoyable party, and easier clean-up and a smaller trash hangover.

Pick the Right Sized Trash Bag for the Job

There are a mind-boggling number of different garbage bags on shelves today. Between various brands, bag types, applications, material, and sizes, one could be forgiven for simply grabbing a box and running to the next aisle hoping for the best.

There are more than a dozen different sizes of trash receptacles in homes. The most common types have many brands competing for their trash bag business. Here’s a guide to the types of cans you have at home, and which size trash bag fit them the best.

First, you need to know that the bags are measured in gallons, which can cause confusion. It helps if you imagine liquid poured into the bag, outside of the container, filling it completely. In reality, the bags don’t hold that much, and often would not stand up to holding that amount of liquid.

4 gallon trash bag

These small boutique trash cans are the workhouse of the home. Found in nearly every room, some people opt to not put any bags in them at all. However, a small 4-gallon bag will do nicely. It will keep your can clean and leave plenty of room to tie the bag shut before putting it out to the curb in your larger trash bin.

8 gallon trash bag

Commonly referred to as the kitchen trash bag, the 8-10 gallon bag can be found in every home. Big enough to hold food and refuse from a couple of days of cooking, it is also small enough for anyone to carry out to the trash bin – even your youngest helpers. And it fits comfortably under most kitchen sinks.

12-15 gallon trash bag

This work room or garage trash bag is perfect for hearty use. It can hold a lot of trash from several projects, or one big one. Watch out, though. When full, this bag can be a load to carry!

20 gallon trash bags and larger

Designed for heavier outdoor or industrial use, bags are made to fit receptacles of nearly every size. These can hold bags within a bag, and are often used as liners rather than trash bags. That is, they are used to keep the bin clean while other smaller trash bags are placed inside then dumped into garbage trucks or dumpsters.

Remember: bagging your garbage is a good choice for keeping your trash bins clean. Check with your community guidelines about which kinds of garbage bags are acceptable at your waste site.

Cut Through The Dumpster Clutter

Use this handy guide to determine the dumpster you need

1. Examine the work you need to do

Before you even pick up the phone, look closely at the work you need to do. Remind yourself of this important rule: a broken thing generally takes up more space in a trash can or dumpster than it would take up if you simply folded or collapsed it.

2. Clarify what size dumpster you need.

As you envision the amount of debris your project will generate, remember too that the dumpster is not only for demolition. It can be handy for construction too. Where will you place the wrapping for your supplies and leftover or waste materials? Think about how you might rent just one dumpster for the life of your project, and get it all taken away at once.

Review the 10 cubic yard, 15 cubic yard, and 20 cubic yard options at the Big Daddy Dumpsters dumpster sizing page to get a better picture of what you will need.

3. (If applicable) determine how many dumpsters it will take to haul away the whole job

Most home projects can be completed with only one dumpster. Professional contractors working on larger projects, however, will want to consider how much debris and waste their project will throw off in a given period of time. These contractors will want to consider how frequently they will trade a full dumpster for an empty one and work that into their order.

4. Review your project budget and determine haul-away allowances

One line of your budget for a large project should be dedicated to waste disposal. While many people live in a municipality with some waste provisions, many projects generate more than their neighborhood trash company will haul away at once. And no one wants to store their old waste on their property, ruining the visual effect of completing the project!

5. Call Big Daddy Dumpster

 

Once you have taken all of the steps above, you now have the answers you need to have an informed conversation with your Big Daddy Dumpster representative. Call them today with the parameters of your project: dates, dumpster size required, number of dumpsters needed, and then ask any other questions you have.

Our friendly and knowledgeable representatives will be glad to assist you today!

Christmas Time is a Great Time to Rent a Dumpster

When we think of Christmas we picture a warm hearth, family gathered together, and snow tufted up on our lawns and streets. Our family is nestled on a couch, watching TV, telling stories, and opening gifts.

Like those gifts, some of our families can be small, and some of them can be quite large. This means that your clean-up needs can vary.

If your Christmas gift to a loved one this year includes a remodel, renovation, or a large surprise for your family, you might consider renting a dumpster for Christmas or, more accurately, for your post-Christmas clean up.

What can go in your Christmas dumpster?

There are lots of things that can go in your Christmas dumpster.

First, if your new gift involves removing old or outmoded electronics, like a TV or a bar in the basement TV room, almost everything from that work can go in there.

  • The old TV (though you can investigate how to recycle or resell it)
  • Wood planks and pressboard
  • Your old refrigerator
  • Drywall
  • Lathe (if your old house still has it)
  • Broken or decrepit concrete

Or. more traditionally, you can use it to collect yours and your neighbors’ christmas trees when the season ends. Many homeowner associations don’t allow these to be dumped on the tree lawn, and some trash contractors won’t pick them up.

One homeowner recently used the event of a Thanksgiving trip away from home to renovate the stairs in front of the house. A Big Daddy Dumpster is the perfect solution for allowing the workers to haul away the junked concrete, supporting boards, old railing, and other trash generated from the work.

If you are using the occasion of holiday travel to get invasive work done, like stairs, or a bathroom or kitchen, a large dumpster can take the guesswork out of cleanup.

One phone call makes cleaning up and hauling away debris simple for your crew, and allows you to come home to a finished project.

Best yet, there are fewer headaches along the way, because our experienced Big Daddy Dumpster crew can manage all of the details for you. Not sure when you need it delivered, or where you want it to go? Unsure of how to schedule the pick up or the dumpster?

Let Big Daddy Dumpster handle the details by working directly with your contractor.

Why Trash Pandas Hate Big Daddy Dumpsters

Recently our office was been getting a lot of complaints that were hard for us to understand. Literally hard to understand. The messages were a series of squeaks and growls. They were sometimes very short, and other times they filled our entire answering machine queue.

After weeks of this, we knew we had to get to the bottom of the phenomenon, so we took a tape to a local animal expert at the Cincinnati Zoo.

As she reviewed the tape, she created a list of possible suspects, and had it narrowed down to three or four finalists. Finally she asked, “What does your company do again?”

When we explained that we provided the area’s strongest and most reliable dumpsters for residential or industrial purposes, she nodded knowingly.

“You have yourself some angry raccoons.”

Raccoons are trash pandas

Typically raccoons don’t care much about what you call them. Some people call them trash bandits because of the markings on their faces that make them look like they have tied a mask over their eyes.

Other people just call them vermin, because they can congregate around people and even thrive living off our waste products. These people assert that the movie “Over the Hedge” is a documentary, and that it accurately portrays the fact that it is nearly impossible to defeat a raccoon’s effort to get into your trash.

It was certainly a loving fan of raccoons that first called them “trash pandas.” For unlike other trash-eating animals like possums and rats, the markings and long fur on raccoons makes them appear cuddly and approachable, and in many ways like a small panda.

But why were the trash pandas pranking our office?

 

Of course, even though the specialist we contacted was able to identify the sounds as coming from raccoons, no one actually “speaks” raccoonese. Not even at the zoo.

We thought we would be left to speculate until recently Big Daddy Dumpsters actually hired a raccoon to appear in our ads. After a long day of shooting … err, he prefers if we say filming … our commercials, he opened up at the charcuterie table.

“Have you ever tried climbing into a Big Daddy Dumpster?” He didn’t wait for an answer before he continued. “Imagine if you were less than a foot tall. It’s impossible. You can’t eat like that. You can’t LIVE like that.”

So there you have it, raccoons hate Big Daddy Dumpsters because they are critter-proof.

I Need a Big Dumpster

Do you ever say to yourself, “I need a big dumpster?”

Maybe you’re looking at a large mess you have to clean up, or you are planning a construction or development project that is going to make more trash than your curbside service can handle.

If you need a big dumpster, you should turn to the bid daddy of dumpsters: Big Daddy Dumpsters.

Our smallest dumpsters are big dumpsters

At Big Daddy Dumpster, we start at “big dumpster” and go up from there.

Our smallest dumpster is a “10-yard” dumpster. And it’s a big dumpster. Really big.

Measuring 8 feet wide and 12 feet long and 3 feet deep, the 10-yard dumpster holds 10 cubic yards of debris or other approved waste.

That’s enough for a household project like a basement cleanout or renovation, or drywall work in the attic.

Many home owners who take on projects around the house find this the perfect size for their project. And with new, convenient 3-day rentals, this is perfect for the 3-day weekend patio teardown and rebuild in your future.

Our medium dumpsters are big dumpsters

Also, our medium dumpsters are pretty big dumpsters too.

Measuring 8 feet wide and 14 feet long and 4 feet deep, the 15-yard dumpster holds 15 cubic yards of whatever you need hauled away from your worksite.

Perfect for medium-sized projects that involve contractors or multiple workers, the medium dumpster can be placed in a convenient location and left for longer periods of time, depending on the scope of the work to be done.

Are you redoing your roof? Do you have a multi-room project on tap? This is the perfect solution for your big dumpster needs.

Our big dumpsters are big daddy dumpsters

Our big dumpsters are not for the casual work-around-the-house sort of handyman or woman.

Instead, the biggest dumpsters are when you have a major project in front of you. Are you flipping a broken down house and need to gut the whole thing? Are you in charge of a construction site that is throwing off construction waste every work day for weeks at a time?

You need a serious, big daddy dumpster.

Measuring 8 feet wide and 14 feet long and 5.5 feet deep, the 20-yard dumpster swallows an amazing 20 cubic yards of refuse.

Set up a schedule to have it regularly replaced as you build a skyscraper or a stadium.

We can handle any job, no matter how big.

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!
