Will I Need a Dumpster for My Cincinnati Junk Removal Project?

How much “stuff” do you have? For those who have called the same place home for many years, it’s all too easy to accumulate a huge amount of personal items, both important and unimportant. Eventually, you could reach a point where it’s time to simply say “enough is enough” and make the decision that it’s time for some things to go for good. In another situation, you could face the need to clear out a home after the passing of a loved one, or to tidy up after a home renovation. Do you need a dumpster to be able to take care of this process? There are a few things that go into making that decision. Let’s break them down.

Assessing the scope of your project with accuracy

Need a Dumpster Sometimes it is easy to know right away when a junk removal project you wish to undertake will generate a large amount of garbage. In the case of cleaning up a property after a renovation, it could be that you had to store the debris generated by the work somewhere else in the house, such as the garage, or elsewhere on the property. It could consist of everything from old, broken drywall and timber framing to paint, large plastic tarps, and more. There’s no need to engage in any estimation when you can see a giant pile of junk in plain sight.

Not every project is so straightforward. When you’ve only just decided it is time to let go of many old items, you may not know right away whether a dumpster is the right choice. After all, what if it turns out that you don’t have that much to discard after all? Go space by space and prepare the property for the removal process. This evaluation can be daunting, but breaking it up into smaller chunks and learning how to determine if you should keep something can make the process that much simpler.

During this process, it is a good idea to make a list of the items that may require special disposal. Your list might include old tires, broken electronic items, or certain types of hazardous waste. It will be important later when you need to choose a dumpster company. Once you’ve done a thorough examination of your home and gotten a first-hand look at how much needs to go, you can decide which disposal method will work best.

Do you really need a dumpster?

Answering the above question requires thinking about some other things first. You may not initially think that a dumpster is the right choice; after all, doesn’t it mean a hassle-filled process and an unsightly dumpster sitting in front of the property for a long period? Neither of these things are necessarily true. In fact, armed with a sense of what you need and what you plan to accomplish, neither are even true concerns. Renting a dumpster can be fast and easy, and when done in sync with your junk removal plans, can streamline the entire process.

Okay, what about those other things you should consider? First, ask yourself if you have any oversized, bulky, or otherwise very heavy items for disposal. Consider the previous example of a house where junk from a renovation and excess building materials have accumulated. That’s not going to be anything you can force into your normal trash can. Even large “contractor” style garbage bags may not be a good idea. Considering that drywall weighs roughly a pound and a half per square foot, it can add up to a hefty weight quickly. Even if you could place the junk inside garbage bags, they could be too heavy to move. If you face a situation like this, a dumpster rental is a smart move. The same goes for large objects.

Next, consider the potential impact of your project. Do you care if everything you throw away goes straight to a landfill, or would you prefer a “greener” approach to the process? Some dumpster companies will sort through the garbage you discard, only sending the most unusable objects to the landfill. The rest go on to recycling facilities. Instead of throwing things in the regular trash, you could choose this option instead.

the do you really need it checklist

As a final consideration, think about the convenience. A dumpster doesn’t just mean less time spent filling garbage bags and hauling heavy objects around. It also means less time spent on the project overall. With an on-site rental, you can spend less time thinking about the logistics of disposal and more time moving things straight from the house into the dumpster. Sound like what you need for a successful project?

Picking the right partner for a rental

So, you’ve decided that you do need a dumpster to execute the project you have in mind after all. What next? For most people, pricing will be the number one concern. This isn’t typically the sort of undertaking that pays for itself, so you’ll naturally want an option that’s cost-effective. Pricing models vary, but among the most helpful for homeowners is the usage-based model. Rather than paying a flat rate or by weight, both of which can prove to be more expensive if you have a lot to discard, you pay based on what percentage of the space in the dumpster you use. Consider how useful this can be, especially in a situation where you fill one dumpster and require another — but with that one, you only fill it up halfway. Instead of paying the entire rate again, you save money by only paying for the half you did use.

the complete summer cleaning guide

Remember the potentially hazardous waste you made a note of earlier? Now is the time to discuss disposal with the dumpster company you choose. Find out what is and is not allowable, then make alternative plans as necessary. For example, many auto supply stores and mechanics will accept used motor oil for disposal, while some brick-and-mortar electronics stores take lithium-ion rechargeable batteries for recycling. It’s important for both safety and environmental reasons not to discard these things with “regular” junk, so check with the provider for tips on how to proceed.

Executing your project with an eye towards success

Plan where you will want the dumpster to go ahead of time after deciding to book a rental. After placement, you may not have the opportunity to move the unit again until the company returns to pick it up again. Where is the place most convenient to your project? Some homeowners may opt for the driveway, while others may make way to allow for the drop-off in the backyard or another area. Wherever you ask for placement, take care not it does not create an obstruction.

With everything now in place, homeowners can proceed apace with their junk removal project. Rental rates typically include several days before any additional fees come into play. This way, you have plenty of time to finish the project and send that junk on its way. When all is said and done, the only thing left to do is tidy up the space and put things back in order.

New Call-to-action

There’s no need to let unwanted items, broken furniture, or discarded appliances accumulate around the house. With a fair pricing scheme such as those described above which scale to the amount of space you fill; a rental dumpster can streamline your junk cleanup project even if you only have a small amount of debris to clear. Whether you need a dumpster because you have a huge amount of junk to remove or because you’re looking for something to add convenience to the project, find a dumpster rental company that has the right flexibility and products to help you.

 

Spring! Time for a Yard Waste Dumpster Rental in Cincinnati

When we think of spring cleaning, we tend to think mostly of indoor projects. Cleaning out the garage. Decluttering the basement. Going through our closets and pulling out garments we don’t wear anymore. Cleaning up the dust, pet dander, and other debris that has built up on surfaces throughout the winter months. By all means, though, your spring cleaning routine should also include some attention to your yard. A yard waste dumpster rental can make it that much easier to execute springtime cleanup and landscaping projects for your yard.

Your Springtime Yard Cleanup Checklist

yard waste dumpster rentalEven a well-maintained yard can start looking pretty decrepit over the course of the winter. Between cold weather, snow, and melting snow, your yard might look brown, flooded, or generally in ill health. Of course, a lot of these issues will take care of themselves as the spring season moves forward. Your grass will start growing again, the trees will blossom, and the flowers will begin to bloom. In a month or two, your yard will look likely and beautiful again.

With all that said, the fact is that you can do a few things to get your yard back into shape sooner. Your springtime yard cleanup checklist might include steps like:

  • Raking up leaves: If there are trees in your yard, then there are probably still leaves strewn about from last fall. Your yard might also be littered with twigs and branches that broke off the trees under the weight of the snow. Raking up the debris and removing it will clean up your yard for a new season.

  • Prune trees, shrubs, hedges, or other plants: Even the most resilient plants can be damaged by heavy snow and bitter cold. Trimming damaged or dead branches from shrubs, trees, hedges, or other plants can make for a healthier growing season for those plants. In other cases, you might have to prune healthy plants that have become a bit overgrown in the past year. Evergreen trees, especially, tend to need some strategic pruning in the springtime.

 

New Call-to-action

  • Clean other litter out of the yard: Is there other litter that needs to be cleaned up before you can start work on your yard? If you have a dog, you might need to go around the yard cleaning up dog waste. There could also be pieces of garbage that have ended up in your yard some way or another. Collecting this junk should be one of your first steps in the spring.

  • Mow the lawn: Your lawn may or may not be very long at this point, depending on whether you mowed it in the fall and how much snow you had. However, giving the lawn a quick, low-cut mow early in the spring is a good idea. Mowing at this stage can help clean up some of the dead grass on the ground, making way for healthier growth in the months to come. An early spring mow can also help clean up snow mold if you have that issue.

  • Plant and landscape: What does your landscaping plan look like this year? Whether you are planning on building a new garden, planting a few trees, or simply dotting the yard with flowers, you should start the planting process early in the summer. Other landscaping tasks, such as mulching certain parts of the yard, should also happen now. Depending on the extent of your landscaping, you might need to do some extensive digging or sod removal. And don’t forget to shore up the more damaged-looking parts of your lawn with fresh seed!

Making a point of completing these tasks in April or May will ensure a green, glowing yard by June and July. You’ll have to set aside some time to do the work, but you’ll be thankful you did when the time comes for summer grilling or warm weather entertaining.

Make Your Yard Cleanup Easier with a Yard Waste Dumpster Rental

Most of the tasks discussed above result in a considerable amount of waste and debris. Piles or bags of leaves; excess dirt; clumps of discarded sod; sticks or twigs; etc. If you have a big yard, you might have a place near the back of the property where you can build a pile of firewood or start a compost pile. In many places, though—especially suburban areas where homes are close to one another—there might be no yard space to spare. Where do you put all that yard waste from your spring cleanup project?

The solution you need is a yard waste dumpster rental. From leaves and grass clippings to sticks, logs, and stumps, virtually any landscaping waste can go in a yard waste dumpster. You can fill the dumpster as you work, getting yard waste out of the way so you can move on to other parts of the project more quickly. Best of all, when you finish the job, your junk removal company will come and haul the dumpster away. You won’t have to worry about finding a place on your property to pile up yard waste because it will all be gone in just a matter of days.

Finding the Right Dumpster Rental

As you shop for a dumpster rental for yard waste disposal, remember that not all dumpster rental businesses provide this service. Dumpster rentals are often meant more for the interior cleanouts mentioned above, like garages and basements. Some dumpster rental companies don’t offer yard waste or require you to rent a specific type of bin for yard waste.

While no dumpster rental company will let you mix yard waste with standard household junk like electronic waste or old, unwanted childhood toys, some businesses are a bit more flexible than others. For instance, it’s not a bad idea to look for a dumpster rental company that lets you throw shingles, plasterboard, or other outdoor building materials into the yard waste bin. Many homeowners pair landscaping projects with improvements to the outside of their homes. In such cases, it can be nice to have one bin where you can deposit everything.

As for other areas of focus, try to find a dumpster rental company that offers eco-friendly service and fair pricing. Especially for yard waste dumpsters, it’s smart to look for rental companies that price their bins according to the amount of space you use. Many dumpster rental businesses have pricing structures that bill in “flat rates,” based on the size of the dumpster you rent. The problem is that predicting what dumpster size you need is not easy. How many cubic yards of debris are waiting in your yard to be cleaned up? It’s hard to know for sure until you are dumping clubs of dirt, piles or leaves, or pieces of wood into the bin.

Don’t let the unpredictability of your yard waste removal project cost you extra money. You don’t want to rent a yard waste dumpster that is too big, because you’ll end up paying for space you don’t use. Instead, choose a dumpster rental company that bills according to how much dumpster space you actually use. That way, you will be getting your money’s worth without sacrificing quality of service.

the do you really need it checklist

A yard cleanup is a smart step in any spring cleaning project. However, the fact is that most people don’t have the means of hauling yard waste away from their property. Taking bags of unwanted junk from your house and loading them into the trunk of your car is one thing; doing the same with bags of dirty yard waste is another. With a yard waste dumpster rental, you’ll never have to worry about the logistics of a yard cleanup again.

A Beginner’s Guide to the Cincinnati Garbage Dumpster

Many people who live in Cincinnati lead active lives and enjoy a host of different activities each season. Some of those undertakings are leisurely, while others are of a more practical nature. For every garden or block party, there’s landscaping or remodeling to complete, which means that the residents of Cincinnati often find themselves in need of practical junk removal  strategies. There are several ways to dispose of unwanted trash or other waste materials when you have items that the regular garbage collectors can’t take. We’ll use this article to examine one of the most popular options for many area members: the prospect of renting a garbage dumpster for a predetermined period.

Garbage DumpsterThere are several ways in which renting a waste container can provide you with greater convenience than other options. Dumpster rental often proves to be one of the most stress-free and cost-effective methods of junk disposal available anywhere in the Cincinnati area, because it puts more control in the hands of the individual than many other options allow. Consider the following: you might be able to transport junk to the landfill by yourself if you have your vehicle, but even if you have a pickup truck you’ll need to make several trips to deal with the material from even small household projects. Conversely, you could hire a full-service junk removal company to clean up your site for you, but then you’ll need to make yourself available to let them onto your property, which could interrupt professional responsibilities and other commitments. However, renting a dumpster of your own allows you to avoid any of these logistical problems.

That’s not to say that renting a dumpster doesn’t come with specific considerations though, so to make things easier we’re going to give you a brief overview of what we think everyone should know before they rent a dumpster in Cincinnati for the first time. Keep reading to see how you can make cleaning up after your next project a smoother experience.

Garbage Dumpster Bin Placement and Why it Matters

One thing you should be aware of when you decide to rent a dumpster in Cincinnati is the place where it will ultimately take up space during the rental. Many first-time renters do not understand that a dumpster cannot occupy a public right of way area. Public right of way areas are defined as land designated for transportation, and they typically include all streets, sidewalks, and paths. For that reason, you won’t be able to keep your rental garbage dumpster on the curb outside your property, unless you apply for a permit and pay the required fees. You’ll probably have to have it placed on the property itself, which means you’ll need to be a little strategic.

One of the most responsible places you can arrange to have your dumpster placed is in your driveway. Putting the bin in your drive will allow your rental company easy access to the drop-off point, which will make it easier for them to deliver your dumpster in the first place. It will also make it easier for them to collect your dumpster again once the rental period is over. It is essential for your rental company to be able to access your dumpster once your rental period has ended. If they cannot access it, they may have to wait until they can do so, which can result in the renter being charged a late fee or for additional time. The easiest way to make sure you don’t have to deal with these issues is to rent a dumpster that fits comfortably in your driveway without taking up all the space in it. That way, you’ll still be able to use your driveway during the rental period without worrying about blocking access to the container.

Materials You Can Put in Cincinnati Dumpsters

Deciding where to place your dumpster is not the only consideration you must undertake when you choose to rent a garbage dumpster in the Cincinnati area. You will also have to make sure that you only fill your bin with appropriate materials. You may find certain restrictions on what you can or cannot put in dumpsters depending on the rental company that you choose. At Junk King, we try to make the process of filling easier by providing easily accessible information on what you’re can put in your skip once you have rented it. We offer dumpsters capable of handling most leftover materials from renovations and home improvement projects and even provide extra services aimed at helping renters deal with heavy or otherwise challenging materials such as concrete.

How to Fill Your Rental Container

Once you have decided on where to put your dumpster and what you plan on putting inside, you should learn about how to organize your materials so that you can fill it adequately. Many people just throw their unwanted material into the container without a second thought, but this can waste space and even create hazards. Instead, it is best to make sure that all loose materials going into your dumpster are as organized as possible. You might want to consider bagging leaves or lawn clippings and tying bundles of scrap materials together so that you can arrange it conveniently and responsibly.

Different Pricing Models

The way you pack your rental dumpster might even allow you to save money, depending on the dumpster rental company that you select. Not all companies price their rentals according to the same criteria; you could be charged based on the weight of your full unit, the size of the container, the length of time you need it for, or a combination of those factors. At Junk King, we try to simplify the process in a way that provides customers with an incentive to fill their containers responsibly. We offer a pricing model based on the amount of space that our customers use when they rent our dumpsters so that they can enjoy lower costs by conscientiously packing the units. Not only does this encourage users to wrap their materials in safe ways and place them correctly in the containers, but it also makes it easier for us to sort those items at our facility and dispose of them in the greenest way possible.

Choosing a Rental Company

Ultimately, the decision you make when choosing a dumpster rental company will be yours alone, but it can be much easier when you consider some of the factors listed above. You’ll want to be sure that your dumpster is small enough to occupy your driveway unless you have secured a permit from the city before you begin working. You’ll also want to make sure that you have thought about what you’ll be putting in your container so that you can find a company offering appropriate receptacles. Then, you’ll want to arrange everything you need to organize the contents ahead of time, especially if you’re renting from us and want to save money on your container. Our dumpsters are a driveway-friendly 12 cubic yards in volume, so you should have no trouble finding an appropriate place for them on your property during your rental.

Renting a garbage dumpster remains one of Cincinnati’s best ways to deal with the unwanted material during a cleanup, whether you’ve just hosted a public event or undertaken a personal project.

Renting a dumpster for personal use is a lot simpler than you might think. As your dumpster rental company in Cincinnati, Junk King takes care of everything but filling the container. Just tell our friendly customer service team when you’d like the dumpster to be dropped off and picked up, and we’ll be there when you need us.

Here are the basic steps of renting a dumpster:

  • Call or book online to schedule an appointment

Tips for How to Fill a Rented DumpsterRenting a Dumpster

Here are some tips to keep in mind when you start filling the dumpster:

  • For heavy items, we recommend using the side door so you don’t have to hoist them high in the air.

  • Try to break down bulky items that take up a lot of space (e.g. removing table legs or breaking lumber in half).

  • Loose construction debris weighs a lot. Dirt, bricks, concrete, tiles, and roofing should only fill the MINI about one-third full.

  • Avoid letting any junk stick out over the top of the container. You will need to remove them or break them down, or we may need to charge an overflow fee.

What Are the Costs of Renting a Dumpster?

Why pay for empty space in a dumpster? Junk King lets you pay per use! We offer lower prices for partly filled containers. When renting a dumpster from our Cincinnati competitors, they’ll charge you a maximum rate even if you only use half the box.

Junk King’s pay per use dumpster pricing makes renting a dumpster more affordable for small projects. The JK MINI can handle sizable amounts of construction debris, but it’s also the easy and convenient solution for spring cleaning and junk removal.

Here’s a simple rundown of the costs of renting a dumpster from Junk King:

  • $168 minimum

  • $248+ for 1/2 MINI

  • $328-$348 for full MINI

  • $30 service fee per day after the first 3 days of rental

  • $0.05 per pound for junk weighing more than 1 ton

  • For construction debris (dirt, bricks, stone) over 4 cubic yards, $20 per extra cubic yard

  • See our MINI terms and conditions for more details in plain language!

What Items Are Not Allowed?

We accept everything except hazardous waste. Junk King understands that you need to be able to dump pretty much whatever waste you have.

Renting a dumpster from a company with a big list of prohibited items makes the whole process a lot less convenient. If you’re shopping around for dumpster rentals in Cincinnati, make sure that you choose a provider who accepts the type of waste you have.

The only items that you can’t throw in a dumpster from Junk King are hazardous materials such as gas, ammo, paint, and fuels.

Where Does My Junk Go?

Did you know that Junk King is the greenest junk removal company in the USA? Renting a dumpster from us means sending the majority of your stuff to recycling or donation.

Junk King Cincinnati donates items to local organizations including the Building Value, New Life Furniture, and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Debris and materials that are recyclable all get sent to nearby facilities — including glass, metal, asphalt, lumber, textiles, and more. We send all the non-reusable items to be responsibly disposed of in Cincinnati area waste facilities. Rest assured that Junk King is committed to eco-friendly choices that you can feel good about when renting a dumpster from us!

Cincinnati Home Cleanouts

If you were asked, “What did you do over the summer?” hopefully you have an answer full of vacations and family fun. If you’re one of the many health inspectors working in the Greater Cincinnati region then you’ve had a very busy summer indeed. A recent review of 5,000 eateries found upwards of 33,000 violations. These violations have included everything from minor issues with grease traps to major vermin infestations. In extreme cases, the restaurants were shut down for a thorough cleaning. Not sure how clean your favorite restaurant might be? The records of those violations are on line but because of the various districts reporting in the standards aren’t always the same.

“Our goal is to have uniformity across the state in how the inspections are conducted and in how the reports are written,” Jamie Higley, the department’s food program administrator, told a local news outlet. “The public is going to be viewing these records and for the public to be able to read those records and be able to understand them is important.”

What about your kitchen? Could your home pass inspection? Sure, most of us aren’t serving up dinners for the masses but that doesn’t mean we have to neglect cleaning up our homes. Scrubbing, wiping, dusting and moping are easy. You just have to schedule the time to dedicate to the chores and then buckle down. A cleanup issue that isn’t so easy to accomplish is getting rid of big pieces of junk. At least, it wasn’t easy until Junk King Cincinnati opened for businesses. Now with one call to these professional junk haulers you can have all your unwanted stuff carted away in a single trip.

When it comes to hauling junk, the only limit that Junk King has is with certain hazardous materials. Even then they’ll be able to help you find the proper way to dispose of them. As for everything else, if it can fit on the back of the Junk King truck it can be taken away. That means just about anything you’re itching to get rid of can be gone.

Spring Cleaning Tips in Cincinnati

Have you thrown open your windows yet to let in the fresh air? It might not be time just yet but within a few weeks we should be ready to welcome spring. A terrific idea for bringing in the freshness is with a little greenery. Believe it or not, live plants can go a long way towards keeping the air in your home fresh. Houseplants like Spider plants, English Ivy, rubber plants and peace lilies make the best natural air filters.

If you really want to freshen up your interiors you might consider giving your rooms a fresh coat of paint. Paint manufacturers have gotten in to the eco-friendly act by designing paints that reduce Volatile Organic Compounds. These are the chemicals that form vapors at room temperature. Some older paints have these compounds in high numbers. Look for new paint with non-VOC chemicals.

This spring you could save a few trees by forgoing the paper towels and instead opt for reusable lint free dust clothes. You can even use an old T-shirt that is destined for the trash or newspapers. This makes you a proactive recycler. One aspect of spring cleaning that you should really be embracing is tossing out all the junk you’ve been collecting over the years. The debate of what is junk and what isn’t has raged in households for generations. If you want a classic definition used by professional organizers than junk is anything that you haven’t used in six months or don’t plan to use for the next six months. That includes any old furniture you’ve put in storage, appliances you’ve replaced, computers you’ve upgraded or stacks of magazines or newspapers you’ve either read or have no intention of reading. It is easy to figure out what stuff of yours is ready for the junk heap. And it’s easy to get rid of all that stuff when you hire Junk King Cincinnati.
