As your local solution for cost-effective, fast, and easy trash removal, we want to make sure that your experience with us is the best that it can be. To make that happen, we’ve created a list of helpful tips to help you while our roll-away dumpsters are on your property. If you pay attention to these tips, you’ll have a faster, better time removing your junk and trash.
About the container
Sometimes, it seems self-explanatory, the things that we do that make the container easier or harder to work with. But it’s really not, at all. There is a list of things that you can do to make your time with our container better. It is easier to keep these tips in mind when placing and filling your container, as well as when picking your container.
Do not overload the container. We need room to be able to dump the contents for you. When that overhead air is filled, our machines cannot fit above the container to lift it. If you think you’ll fill your container, we recommend getting a bigger size to start or ordering another container. They could even be placed side by side or have one taken away before the other.
Containers must be put on a flat surface. This seems like an obvious tip, but in reality, it makes a huge difference depending on what you are disposing of. Remember, our containers are mean to be lifted and poured out at our site. This means that if there is liquid inside of the dumpster and you step into the dumpster to retrieve your aunt’s favorite lamp, you may find yourself going down hard onto the floor of the container.
About the family
We’re all about family here at Box Brothers (if you haven’t noticed on our website). And that means that your family’s safety is always on our minds. Here are a few tips to help you navigate your family life while our container is in it.
Keep all children away from the container at all times. We know it’s hard to wrangle kids every moment of every day, but while our container is with you—you need to keep it away from the children in your life. The containers can be exciting and can draw a lot of questions and attention from young people. However, they need to be taught not to go near it. What happens if they are in it while things are being thrown in from the side?
Consider designating a person for filling the dumpster. Let’s face it; some people are better at utilizing space than others. Since you (should) fill the dumpster front to back, sometimes that requires a person to go inside to push trash back (to the front). Designating one person to do this is a safe way to keep control of the situation if things begin to pile up and people begin to forget where each other are.
About the waste
We’d like to say that anything and everything can go into our dumpsters, but that’s not the case. We follow guidelines to ensure that the trash we remove from your property can be properly disposed of. This means that if there is anything inside of the container that should not be thrown in the dump, you should consider other options.
Do not throw away eWaste, hazardous chemicals, or materials. All of these things cannot be properly disposed of by our facility. EWaste, like televisions or computers, have their own disposal facilities, and keeping them out of the environment is the most helpful for everyone. This also goes for hazardous chemicals and hazardous materials. When they are improperly disposed of, they can destroy the environment and kill wildlife.
Break down the big stuff. It’s the best way to ensure that you get the most bang for your buck with our containers. Fitting more in means removing more of it faster for you. If you break down the big stuff, you can get more into the container. Plus, it can be particularly fun to do with the right tools. Just make sure to wear protection when you’re swinging that hammer.
