A Landscaper’s Guide to Waste Removal

A Landscaper’s Guide to Waste Removal

Landscapers often need to dispose of large quantities of landscape materials such as soil, grass, trees & tree debris, brick, clay, asphalt, stone, and concrete. We know the importance of keeping your site clean and safe, which is why we’ve come up with a simple guide to the removal of waste from your landscaping site!

If you are managing a landscaping company, it’s crucial to know the most efficient way to get the job done. Typically, most people will rent or borrow a truck to take care of the debris and waste if they don’t have their own truck, followed by back and forth trips to a landfill.

Now, there are other factors you must consider while choosing this option, such as if there are any dumps within close proximity to you or where to rent a truck from. Fuel, truck rental and insurance are also fees you may find yourself paying.

Perhaps the easiest and most efficient way to ensure your site remains clean, and the waste is disposed of responsibly, is renting a mixed waste dumpster bin or a clear fill bin.

Mixed Waste Bins Vs. Clean Fill Bins

A mixed waste bin is your traditional rental dumpster bin. Any material is accepted in a mixed waste bin, as long as it follows general guidelines and does not contain any hazardous materials. On the other hand, a clean fill bin is a bin that contains only one of either soil/sod, gravel, broken up concrete, block, asphalt, or bricks. If any other material is found in the bin, it will be considered a solid load. When carrying out a landscaping job, you may find yourself making use of clean fill bins.

Choosing a Size for a Landscaping Project

An important aspect of choosing a dumpster is to remember that you can’t fill it to the point where the material is overflowing. Dumpsters can only be filled to the point where the material is filled to the top of the dumpster walls. Usually, a tarp is put over top of the bin in order to transport it so it’s important to avoid overfilling. This is why it’s important to get the right size for your project. There are many sizes available that range from 4 yards to 40 yards. A 4-yard dumpster can hold 4 cubic yards of clean-fill and likewise, a 40-yard one can hold 40 cubic yards. For a larger landscaping project, we recommend a dumpster size of 20 or 30 yards depending on how large and what you’re planning on putting into the dumpster.

Transporting Your Rental Dumpster Bin

If you schedule a rental dumpster bin, you won’t have to worry about transporting it either. In fact, it is delivered by a truck that is specially designed to carry it. It’s outfitted with hydraulic equipment that can easily lift and lower the dumpster, even when it’s filled with thousands of pounds of debris. You also won’t need to worry about your driveway enduring any damage, our professionals are mindful and cautious.
