Are you planning to check off items on your to-do list this winter? Whether you are cleaning out the attic, organizing the garage or cleaning the backyard, it is smart to rent a disposal bin or dumpster to minimize the mess around your home.
Reasons to Rent a Disposal Bin
It allows for a flexible schedule. There are times when clean-up projects finish sooner than you expected. This means you can keep the disposal bin for as long as you have it rented and use it for other home improvement tasks.
You have control over what gets tossed out. When you clean out a basement or garage, you need time to sort out items into what is kept, thrown away or donated. Having a disposal bin can provide control over this part of the clean-up process.
It is more cost-effective than a removal service. Junk removal services often charge a flat fee. This makes sense for hauling away a small number of items. Beyond that, the cost starts to add up. One cost-effective solution is to choose a disposal bin in the size that accommodates your needs.
Safety Tips for Using a Disposal Bin in Winter
Cover it with a tarp. Make it a priority to protect your dumpster from the winter elements so that moisture does not build up and wreak havoc on the belongings inside the bin.
Keep the path around the disposal bin clear. Make sure the path to your dumpster is clear from ice and snow, especially before a storm hits your neighborhood. Items that go into the bin can have exposed nails and sharp ends, and walking on slippery ground can cause injuries.
Wear appropriate clothing. Keep yourself out of harm’s way by wearing appropriate clothing such as gloves and a jacket while you are outside in cold weather. Carrying heavy items can lead to sweating, which can be dangerous in freezing temperatures.
