Many of us know the feeling of having to drag garbage out to the curb on an ice cold garbage day in January. Many would say it’s too much to handle, especially in Canadian winter climates. Unfortunately, the need to toss garbage and debris doesn’t end just because winter arrived. But there are ways to handle your needs for winter junk removal.
Create Room for Your Bin Rental
Most garbage removal companies are operational all year round, which means they can deliver the appropriate rental bin whenever you most need it. In order to accommodate the bin, there are some things you need to do prior to bin drop-off. First, clear out all possible impediments to the safe delivery of a disposal bin from your driveway or yard where the bin is to go. Remove cars, other small garbage bins and any items that could get in the way. Shovel all snow and ice. Clear out all the room required to safely maneuver yourself for safe disposal of junk into the bin.
Prep the Area
Winter in Southern Ontario usually means ice and snow. Icy buildup on various materialed walkways and other areas that may be travelled during the process of filling your bin must be tended to. Purchase environmentally friendly melting agents to deal with the ice. If required, buy a bale of hay and use it to cover the path too and from the bin. You can never be too safe when carrying large, awkward junk, construction debris and garbage to your bin.
Cover Your Bin!
Snow in the winter isn’t too much of a surprise. If you’re renting a bin, you should make sure to cover it during a snowfall. If you’re renting from National Bins for more than one day, you don’t want your bin full of snow rather than garbage. Take the necessary precautions to ensure you can maximize the space within the garbage bin.
Don’t underestimate how cold it is. Moist skin and frozen metal don’t mix; keep that in mind. And anything damp will probably freeze in sub-zero temperatures, so be sure to protect yourself when loading your metal bin. Wear proper safety gloves to protect your hands.
