It is also the preferred bin size for residential landscape work. It is low to the ground which makes it easily accessible from any side and is perfect for jobs that require you to dump material into the bin using a wheelbarrow.

What happens if I fill the bin and need another?

Sometimes your project requires several disposal bins to complete. This is something 1-833-GET-BINS is asked about routinely and is what we refer to as an exchange or swap out. After your first bin rental order, all your order details are easy accessible in our self managed client portal, from there you can request pick-up, exchange or swap-out; also view your invoices and weight tickets. You are also welcome to call / text or email an exchange. When an exchange or swap-out is requested, we usually send out an empty bin to the location and pick up the loaded bin at the same time. We will assume you want the empty bin placed in the same location unless otherwise requested.

Can I place the disposal bin rental on the lawn?

All disposal bins are to be placed on a flat level surface for the safety of all users.

We prefer not to place bins on the lawn or grass, but if a customer approves of this, we will fulfil their request. Please note that we will not be responsible for any damage to the lawn or any curbs that are needed for access.

Do I need to be home for the bin delivery?

You are not required to be home when the bin is being delivered. Your dedicated driver will send you an “on the way” text or message, and you will receive a delivered notification once the disposal bin is delivered. Our drivers have your instructions for bin placement on our driver app.

Will the disposal bin leave rust marks on the driveway?

It’s a common problem with the larger roll-off style trucks & disposal bins or older bins that have not been well maintained. Our disposal bins are super clean and are freshly painted every 2 years or as needed. They are rust proofed so the bottoms will not leave rust stains on your driveway.
