Tips on How to Keep Water Out of Your Rental Bin

During the spring months, an influx of spring cleaning and construction projects are expected in the Kitchener and Waterloo areas. We happily supply residential, commercial and contractor clients with the perfect bin size for their project. However, what is also common during these spring months is frequent rain showers and damper weather. The team here at National Bins wants to offer you some tips on keeping water out of your rental bin to save you time and money from extra weight.

Plan for the Weather 

Be proactive and check in with the weather reports when planning the days or week for your garbage removal in Kitchener or Waterloo. Avoid stormy or rainy days, most dumpster bin rental companies will be flexible with changing the days, and it will be worth it in the long run. Trying to empty a rain-filled bin will take extra time or costs. 

Rent a Cover

Consider looking for a company that provides bin covers or tarps. Although this may increase the overall project budget, it will save you time and money in the long run, as the extra rainwater will increase the bin weight upon return.

Use Boards or a DIY Cover

Your rental company does not provide covers or lids? No problem. Seek out some plastic tarps from your neighbour or use some wood boards to cover the bin rental if it begins raining. You do not always need a custom dumpster cover to ensure rain stays out of the container. 

We understand how weather can cause inconvenience when planning a garbage removal or construction project. The team here at National Bins is always here to offer free advice and recommendations for you and your project.
