Loading a container tips. 
Do not load over the maximum height of the container. The driver will either have to leave which will result in an additional charge. The driver will have to throw some of the waste out which will result in an additional charge.  
We know you want to get your money's worth. However, you cannot load waste above the height of the container. We set our pricing with volume and weight in mind. If you load the container above the height then you are negating our cost analysis.

Also, the tarp is designed to run right next to the side of the container (less than an inch,) so if waste is hanging over the side, then the container cannot be tarped. If the waste is over the maximum height of the container then the tarp will not completely cover the load. It will also damage/rip the tarp, which is a very unnecessary expense. Enjoy some of these NO NO photos.




Christmas season

Posted on December 9, 2019 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (1)

December is here.  Thanksgiving is over with, and the Christmas and New Year are coming.  This time of year is usually the least hectic for us, as everyone is focusing on the holidays rather than remodeling or cleaning.  Businesses usually don't schedule too many roll offs for December, as they don't want anymore expenses for the fiscal year.  



However, if you do need/want a waste container, then this is a good time to get one for a few reasons.

1. The schedule is not as hectic as normal.

2.  The container can usually be left on site for longer than the 2 week standard without rental fees.

3.  The ground is usually frozen, so the truck/container will not damage the grass/ground like the warmer months.

4.  Since the schedule is not as hectic, feel free to talk to the driver longer with all of your questions.  Remember... We don't hire rookies, so our drivers have years in the industry. 

5. Time/day can be pretty precise this time of year.


This time of year is to be focused on family, relaxing, and looking forward to start the new year.  If you feel the need to work, then feel free to contact us for a waste container.

Cooler temps

Cooler temperatures are here! This time of year is a good time to finish all of your projects before winter arrives.  Container availablilty is usually pretty good around this time, so the wait time should be small, if any.  If you need a container around Thanksgiving, however, you need to schedule sooner rather than later, as that time of year is usually pretty busy.

SUMMER IS COMING

Summer is coming! This is the most efficient time to order a rolloff container, as we no longer need to worry about flooding (hopefully!)


Depending on your needs, you can email us at [email protected] to inquire about a rolloff.  This is a good idea if your work schedule cannot allow you to call us during normal business hours.  We are usually pretty prompt on reponding to emails.

If it is during normal business hours, feel free to call or leave a message if no one answers.  We will get back with you as soon as we can.  

Spring!

Along with spring season, comes time for projects! Some helpful tips for this upcoming spring:

* Make sure you have your container date scheduled as soon as you can.

* Keep in mind that the weather affects us too. Torrential downpours create havoc at the landfills, so our trucks may not have fast turnarounds in poor weather.

* Not everyone can have the first slot of the day. Try a different time of day to have your container delivered.

* Make sure to check the area where you want the container to be placed. Our office staff and drivers will automatically check these things. Here are some things that we check for: overhead trees, underground lines, septic systems, the firmness of the ground, overhead power lines. Keep in mind, that although the container may find a nice spot, we need to ensure the truck can get out as well.
