With all the beautiful red, yellow, and orange leaves falling to the ground at this time of year, some serious cleanup is in order. Whether you are finishing off a home improvement project from the summer or need somewhere to put all those extra leaves, renting a roll off dumpster can help you take care of it all. To help get your fall cleaning checklist started, we’ve put together a list of ways you can put one of our Cali Carting roll off dumpsters to use!

Landscaping

If your summer renovation is taking a little bit longer than expected, you may want to think about renting a curbside dumpster. Available in a variety of sizes, our dumpsters are perfect for projects of every scale. With a few exceptions, discard everything from wood debris and old furniture to daily waste and garbage. Renting a roll off dumpster provides you with the means to dispose of and store all of your leftover scraps, with the peace of mind that they will be properly taken care of.

Fallen branches and other natural debris can build up as the season progresses. Making the preemptive decision to remove loose or dead branches may be beneficial in the long run, but takes up space in the meantime. Renting a roll off dumpster will provide you with the space to dispose of debris from large-scale landscaping projects such as this.

Neighborhood Clean Up

Leaves and other debris tend to pile up on street corners and in front of entrances, as well as in the actual street. Take advantage of the opportunity to give your neighborhood some much-needed attention on a larger scale. Round up your neighbors and organize a little fall clean up. Recruiting neighbors will help reduce the cost and workload normally associated with tidying up the block. When your fall cleanup efforts extend beyond your property, your entire neighborhood will experience the benefits. Coming together as a community after a destructive event such as a storm can also result in a more efficient cleanup effort.

Unbeatable Services

Seasonal demands for dumpster rentals fluctuate throughout the year. With the majority of home renovation and landscaping projects occurring in warmer months, dumpster availability tends to go up by the time fall rolls around. Providing quality service all year long, our dumpster rental service is prepared to assist you with your waste disposal in any weather condition or time of year.

Decluttering

Part of moving into a new home or apartment involves decluttering your current space to free up room in your new one. Whether your lease is up at the end of the year or end of the month, renting a dumpster may be the right move for you. For those who are sticking around for another year or few years, renting a dumpster can be a great motivator to clean out your home. Has your garage become a repository for junk you’ve practically forgotten about? Discarding large furniture or upholstered bedding may require specific guidelines for proper disposal. Don’t take the chance of getting a ticket for improper disposal, bring in a dumpster and make your move much easier.

4 Effective Waste Management Strategies

October 12th, 2018 by rosario

Accumulating waste, from trash to recyclables, is easy, but how much do you know about where the waste should go once it has been created? Waste management strategies are how the waste we create is collected, transported, and disposed of. The strategy you choose for your own waste management depends on your personal needs, and Cali Carting offers a number of effective waste management options to easily get the job done. Read on to learn more about the services we can offer you!

Municipal Trash Collection

Part of waste management includes waste collection, and this step allows waste to be transferred from its original location to the location of its treatment. Municipal trash collection ensures that the waste you create will be taken from your home to wherever it needs to end up. It also allows you to be assured that your recyclable materials will be handled properly and brought to the correct place. Cali Carting proudly serves 200,000 residents in New Jersey, and the members of our management team are certified by the Solid Waste Association of North America.

Dumpster Rentals

Following instances when a large amount of waste is created (for example, a construction project or home renovation), the waste management strategy utilized needs to be suited to the situation. Such a volume of trash can often be taken care of with a dumpster, able to collect and dispose of a large variety of waste types. Dumpsters are capable of handling demolition debris, contaminated dirt, household waste and construction debris, and recyclable materials, including concrete, asphalt, cardboard, scrap metal, wood, and much more. Dumpsters are such an effective waste management strategy because they are convenient, easy to use, and can help manage waste for businesses and residences alike.

Compactors

For those facing a high volume of trash or recyclable materials, a compactor will be the most effective management strategy. Compactors are available in a variety of sizes and sturdiness levels, as they allow for waste and recyclable materials to be managed, stored, and disposed of in whatever way is most applicable. Compactors are effective and beneficial for businesses because they eliminate the need for multiple trash containers, and allow for waste to be disposed of properly.

Recycling Services

Going green should apply to all areas of life, especially when it comes to waste management and recycling. Businesses often face a large amount of waste each day or week, and through the use of commercial recycling route services, sustainable materials can avoid the landfill and be reused for another purpose in the future. This is one of the best ways to reduce waste in a productive way. Materials that can be recycled include cardboard, paper, glass, plastic, aluminum, batteries, and more. Ensuring that recyclable waste is disposed of in an eco-friendly way is both beneficial to the environment and cost-effective, so there is no reason to not work towards going green with waste management when possible.

Waste Management Services in New Jersey

Since 1983, Cali Carting has been providing consistent commercial, industrial, and residential waste and recycling services throughout New Jersey. We offer all of the services listed above, and it is our pleasure to assist both commercial and residential customers with their waste management needs. We are a family owned and operated company focused on putting our customers first, so you can receive personalized service focused on a waste management strategy most effective for you.

7 Perks of Renting a Roll Off Dumpster

September 19th, 2018 by rosario

roll-off-dumpster-cali-carting

Whether you are tearing down walls to create space or remodeling the interior, home renovations can be a messy project and require plenty of planning to properly execute. If not handled correctly, generated waste can potentially impede the renovation process or become a safety risk. At Cali Carting, we feel it is in your best interest to be aware of the reasons behind using a roll off dumpster for your next project. That is why we have put together a list of the seven perks of renting a roll off dumpster with us.

Property Protection

If you’re piling debris at the curb or on the project site, no matter how careful you and your employees are, there’s likely to be some damage. With a dumpster, that’s not an issue. Simply bring all the debris to the container and store it there until the project is done.

Workplace Safety

There are few things less safe than exposed piles of debris. When you opt to use a roll off dumpster, you won’t have to worry about the danger of storing sharp, jagged or heavy debris. Whichever dumpster size you choose, Cali Carting provides a solidly constructed dumpster to keep it all contained until it’s hauled away. No broken glass, rusty nails or wood splinters to worry about. These roll-off style containers collect all kinds of waste, from construction materials, household appliances, furniture, metal, and just about anything else.

Reduced Risk of Litigation

With a safer job site, the risk of expensive lawsuits for your company should decrease. This can save you untold amounts in future legal bills. A single container will help avoid dangers to your workers and protects pedestrians who pass by the site.

Efficiency

With a dumpster on site, you can devote your efforts to getting the job done. Having one designated place to discard all waste materials instead of piling it up in smaller containers can actually make your workers more efficient. It eliminates the time and energy associated with waste disposal since the decision is made for them. When the job is done, the waste will be automatically taken care of and removed.

Versatility

While there are some guidelines as to what can be discarded in a dumpster– daily waste, broken appliances, old furniture, and large chunks of debris are all fair game. From construction materials to miscellaneous waste, garbage can quickly build up on a job site. With a dumpster, you now have one place to hold it.

Peace of Mind

Another dumpster rental benefit you might not have expected is the added peace of mind it can bring. Finished the job? We will take it from there. Roll off dumpsters allow you to avoid taking several smaller trips throughout the construction project. With more than 100 years of commercial waste recycling experience, Cali Carting has the industry knowledge needed to dispose of your waste in an environmentally sound manner – according to all regulations and laws.

Eco-Friendly

Although not the first thought when seeing a roll off dumpster, disposing of waste in bulk can have environmental benefits. Since more waste can be picked up and disposed of in one trip, the reduction of CO2 emissions reduces your company’s carbon footprint. Whether it is construction debris or your construction workers’ lunch, no durable waste bags are needed for removal.

Cali Carting Roll Off Dumpsters

With all those things, we hope you have a clearer idea of the benefits you get from renting a roll off dumpster. If you are planning to rent a dumpster for an upcoming project, leave it to the experts at Cali Carting. For more information about the services we provide, give us a call at (201) 991-5400. The next time you find yourself renovating your home, you know who to call.

How to Keep Pests Out of Your Dumpster Rental

August 27th, 2018 by rosario

Whether you’re demolishing a house or just trying to clear out some space, a dumpster rental can be a great way to dispose of everything you don’t need. Large enough to store all of your waste, and sturdy enough to withstand blows from thrown concrete and metal, you’ve decided that you need a dumpster. The only problem is, now that you have it, you just can’t seem to keep pests out. You might encounter something as small as maggots or as large as black bears, and for both your convenience and your safety, here are some ways to keep any and all pests out of your dumpster.

Covering Your Dumpster

While larger pests like raccoons and bears will often find a way around or through a cover, covering your dumpster rental can be a great way to keep smaller pests out. Putting a tarp or other large materials over the top of the dumpster and securing it will likely keep any pests such as maggots, mosquitoes, flies, or other small nuisances away from your dumpster rental. Just make sure you remember to take your tarp off by the time your Cali Carting worker comes to haul away your dumpster.

Keeping Food Waste Out of Your Dumpster

Putting food waste in your rental dumpster is a sure way to attract different kinds of pests. Not only will the food begin to rot and smell terrible, it will quickly attract flies, leading to maggots and other infestations. Aside from insects and tiny pests, food waste is the best way to attract raccoons. These notoriously crafty thieves have been known to sneak into the smallest places to steal food, but an open dumpster with food waste in it is essentially an all-you-can-eat raccoon buffet. New Jersey is also home to a large population of black bears, who have been known to wander into town and help themselves to any food waste left in the open. If you want to avoid encountering a black bear in your driveway, keeping food waste out of your dumpster rental is the best first step.

Keeping Your Dumpster on Concrete

While it’s not always possible, keeping your dumpster rental on concrete or pavement is far more ideal than keeping it on grass. If you place your dumpster on grass, you’re giving pests the opportunity to create nests underneath, especially since the dumpster is often time placed on top of their already existing home. When the dumpster is on a driveway or concrete slab, pests don’t have the opportunity to create nests underneath, hopefully keeping your dumpster insect and rodent free.

Using Repellents on Your Dumpster

When disposing of waste that you know will attract pests, repellent may be a good option. A mixture of ammonia and water has been known to deter insects and flies, but should be handled carefully, as ammonia can be dangerous to people and the landscape around your project site or home. Bear, raccoon, and other larger pest repellents can typically be purchased at your local hardware or lawn care store. When using repellents, it’s always important to read the directions carefully and handle with care, but this could be you best or only option to truly keep pests away from your rental dumpster.

Dumpster Rentals in New Jersey

Pests can be a nuisance, but what shouldn’t be a nuisance is finding a quick and easy way to rent a dumpster for your next big project. Cali Carting has been providing New Jersey with reliable and convenient dumpster rental services for over 25 years. With dumpsters of all different sizes and for all different jobs, Cali Carting proudly serves the entire Garden State.

4 Ways to Make Your Summer Party Eco-Friendly

June 28th, 2018 by rosario

 

A group of people with wine in their hands.

What are some of the first things that you associate with the summer? For many people, summer is the best time for throwing parties and spending time with family, friends, and neighbors. From barbeques and pool parties to birthday and graduation bashes, parties are a summer staple, but they often result in quite a bit of garbage. Every choice that we make affects the environment, and there are a number of quick and easy steps that anyone can take to make their summer party more beneficial to the planet.

1. Keep Invitations Virtual

Receiving mail is always fun, but invitations are far more eco-friendly when they are sent via email rather than on paper. There are a number of websites that you can use to create an exciting virtual invitation (Evite and Paperless Post are both great options), and these can be emailed to all of your guests in an instant. Another benefit of virtual invitations is that they are interactive, allowing you to track your RSVPs, contact your guests easily, and provide more information about your party. If you’d rather not send out invitations via email, try Facebook! Creating an event page allows you to reach your guests through social media, and can help spread the word about your party.

2. Reuse Your Decorations

Using items you already own when you’re decorating can lead to a ton of waste reduction. For example, try using the same birthday banner every year, rather than buying a new one each year and then throwing it away. If you do end up buying something that you’re only going to need once, give it away rather than tossing it. If your party extends into the night, use candles for light rather than light bulbs. This aids in both reducing your electricity usage and creating a more intimate and cozy atmosphere.

3. Choose Cloth Over Plastic

To continue the trend of reusing your party supplies, check out your local thrift store for linens that can be washed and used over and over again. Things like tablecloths and napkins are a huge source of waste, and you’ll feel much better about your party if when it ends, it has barely produced any garbage. You could even share these items with friends and family, and encourage the use of washable party linens rather than disposable ones.

4. Avoid Disposable Items

The most clear sources of party-produced waste are the ever-common disposable plates, cups, and cutlery. According to the EPA, more than 780,000 tons of plastic and styrofoam cups are discarded annually, and if people stopped using them for their summer parties, that number would be sure to drop. If you don’t want to take out your entire personal cutlery set every time you throw a party, consider investing in a second set, possibly from a secondhand store. If you use the same set of plates, cups, and utensils every time you throw a party, you will be contributing a lot less waste to the countrywide total. Your guests will also be able to avoid the aggravation of flimsy paper plates and plastic knives.

Make Your Life Greener

There are so many small changes you can make while planning your party that will lead you to the greenest possible result. Although the focus here has been on making your summer celebrations more eco-friendly, pulling green techniques into your everyday life will be even more beneficial to the planet. Cali Carting is a full service solid waste and recycling company located in Kearny, NJ, and we would love to work with you to help you plan and achieve your sustainability goals. We strive to deliver the most environmentally friendly assistance possible.

4 Things to Know About New Jersey Recycling Laws

April 5th, 2018 by rosario

Get to Know the Recycling Laws Better and Simplify the Recycling Process

One thing is for certain: Recycling laws in the state of New Jersey are not the easiest to understand. That being said, there’s virtually no way to get around them—In the garden state, it is required by law that every resident and business recycles the mandatory, qualified items, which are determined by certain recycling areas, county legislation and a few statewide laws. Although the act of recycling betters the environment and reduces waste disposal costs, it can still be frustrating to navigate the tedious recycling laws and tasks in the state of NJ.

1.    Solid Waste Regulations and Recycling Permits in NJ

Every state varies when it comes to defining recyclable materials. Living in NJ means that recycling exists under—and must adhere to—solid waste regulations. Some have an issue with this, since the whole point of recycling is to reuse appropriate materials. Nevertheless, it is important for those who wish to obtain an NJ recycling permit to familiarize themselves with solid waste regulations, which are not the easiest to grasp.

2.    Four Categories of New Jersey Recyclable Materials

Due to the fact that there are so many different types of recyclable materials, the state of NJ has divided each type into a separate category—these include Class A, Class B, Class C and Class D. Recyclable materials in Class A consist of the traditional recyclable materials that are commonly recycled nationwide, including paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and even metal. Approval by the NJDEP is not required to recycle Class A materials. Class B contains construction and demolition materials, such as concrete, leaves and asphalt. Compost is the main material in the the Class C recyclable materials category—this type is usually laid out to compost over a period of time. Class D recyclable materials is full of miscellaneous items like batteries, consumer electronics and oil-based finishes.

3.    NJ Recycling Exemption and Approval

Believe it or not, NJ recycling exemption is free of charge. It only requires an application with some paperwork. Recycling approval costs are another story, though, when it comes to recycling laws in New Jersey. Recycling approval costs can be broken down into a variety of separate charges, including consulting costs, application feeds, annual fees and ongoing fees.

4.    Three Main Ways to Begin Recycling in NJ

Those who are trying to obtain a recycling license, permit or approval in New Jersey can begin recycling the right way by following various types of paths. The NJ recycling exemptions are for specific types of recycling centers and smaller projects. There are also NJ general recycling approvals, which are given to those who want to truly be in the recycling business—no doubt about it. These New Jersey general recycling approvals last for 5 years and can be renewed, altered or sold. Limited recycling approvals are only valid for Class B recyclable materials in NJ and were mainly created for one-time-deal activities. Although this process is easier than most of the others, it still takes up to four months to receive limited approval in the state of NJ.

Trust Cali Carting Inc. to Manage NJ Recycling Areas and Laws

Understanding the NJ recycling laws and recycling areas can be tough. When an individual or business has handled all of that and the process is said and done, contacting a reliable NJ full-service solid and waste company is a smart choice to make, so that they can help out with picking up and sorting through all the recyclable materials for you. Cali Carting Inc., located in Kearny, NJ, provides route services in NJ that involve waste and recycling pickup for NJ businesses with the options of front load, rear load and curbside pickup.

Spruce Up Your Community This Spring Cleaning Season

March 19th, 2018 by rosario

 

How to Help Clean Up Your Community this Spring

A clean community free of garbage and waste provides your town with the positive reputation of being a great place to live. The town’s collaborative efforts from both residents and municipal services all add to the heartwarming ambiance that all neighborhoods strive to achieve. Even though yearlong maintenance should be performed and enforced on a regular basis, the first clear weather of spring is a common indication that it’s time to get started on the biggest yearly clean up. The goal not only lies within tidying up your own home, but all around the entire community as well. Through collective action and support, here’s how you can spruce up your community this spring cleaning season!

Join a Town Clean-Up Campaign

One of the best ways to stay involved in your community is to participate in a town clean up campaign. With this type of neighborhood initiative you can focus your efforts on making your town as clean as can be. Unfortunately, garbage and other waste products aren’t always disposed correctly. Waste can get thrown and strewed about in a number of ways, however the cause does not matter in comparison to what must be done. Participating residents will travel throughout the town’s parks, roads, or any designated area to begin their cleanup service. The town may provide a dumpster rental to dispose of the waste you’ve collected during your gracious work. These town gathering go-green activities and initiatives are typically based on volunteering, but it’s quite a rewarding experience to be a part of. Join your friends, family and neighbors to take pride in your town by personally assisting in making it a better place to live.

Keep a Watchful Eye

Aside from keeping an eye out for garbage that didn’t make its way to the proper waste bin, it’s also important to note the town’s infrastructure and occurrences. During your daily travels getting to work, be mindful of any issues you see on the exterior of properties or town owned land. If anything significant is noticed act fast and notify the town or property owner immediately. The following list will describe examples of scenarios to be mindful in assuring the safety and overall cleanliness of your municipality.

  • Condition of Sidewalks
  • Conditions of Other Pavements & Roads
  • Needed Landscape Maintenance
  • Scenarios of Incorrect Waste Disposal
  • Dumpster Enclosures in Need of Being Sealed Off
  • Poor Water Drainage

Outsource To a Waste Management Provider

A beneficial option for town municipalities to utilize is outsourcing their waste management. Opting for these services will allow for a dedicated provider to offer daily route services for efficient disposal of trash and recycling collections for local municipalities. Investing in the services of experienced waste removal and recycling professionals will relieve the concern of garbage buildup and continue to help your town ambitiously lead the way in environmental green initiatives. An outsourced waste management provider will assume your goals as their very own and service your neighborhood with compassionate dedication.

Municipal Waste Management Services in New Jersey

Maintaining the cleanliness of your neighborhood is insurmountably important to current residents, businesses and visitors alike. It’s these large bargaining points that drive people to visit, live in and judge the town they call home or are passing through. Waste-free surroundings will drive visitation rates while assisting with the town’s business altogether – a clean landscape makes way for the assumption of spotless interiors with residents and business owners who show that they care. If your town is searching for ways to improve their waste management, contact the professionals at Cali Carting to get the job done right. Our comprehensive waste management services will keep your town tidied and spruced up for any occasion – even if it’s just enjoying another average day.

How Recycling Creates New Job Opportunities

March 19th, 2018 by rosario

 

Recycling wasn’t always popular. Fortunately, for both the planet and the economy, recycling has become the new normal. In 2018, nearly every single business, household and state-owned property contains a recycling service of some kind. Recycling companies are popping up all over the nation as well. As the need for recycling increases every single day, so does the need for employees to fulfill the growing demands that the recycling industry requires.

Recycling Requires a Lot of Labor

Believe it or not, it takes a large amount of manpower to treat and process used or waste materials so that they can be suitable for reuse. Unlike typical waste management and trash handling, recycling is broken down into multiple steps and therefore requires more labor than the average trash pick-up process. Since the recycling industry is so complex and has a lot of moving parts, recycling job opportunities are always opening up as various recycling companies and organizations create new roles to fill.

There are Multiple Types of Recycling Employees

Although it can vary depending on the area or materials being recycled, the recycling process typically begins with a set of drivers who collect the recyclable materials from homes in residential areas, construction sites, businesses, demolition centers and designated drop-off sections. Once the drivers have completed the pick up, they must drop off the materials to the employees who work at a recycling center—their main job is to sort through and separate the materials, which requires a lot of hands-on work. Other recycling job opportunities include day-to-day recycling facility operation, recycling sales and logistics support.

Recycling Training Services Are Increasing

Since there are so many recycling job opportunities, there has been an intense need for training material to accommodate those men and women who want to become certified recycling professionals. Even though prospective recycling employees can receive training from an accredited college or university, many recycling companies are offering recycling training services—which create more jobs in and of itself. As recycling training services multiply in number, so do the new workers in the recycling field. Upon completion of recycling training, students will be awarded a certificate that makes it possible to work some of the many jobs that are offered.

There’s Consistent Growth in the Recycling Industry

As the government becomes more and more involved with recycling, getting the country on the same page, the members put more of a focus on the recycling industry and job creation. Studies have also shown that the waste management industry doesn’t require nearly as many employees as recycling industry jobs do, especially since more people have jumped on board with recycling their paper, plastic and cardboard within the past few years. Generally, it takes a much larger team to control and manage the day-to-day operations of a successful recycling process, which means that there is always going to be growth in the recycling industry and plenty of recycling job opportunities to aspire to. The fact that the recycling industry also pays their employees a higher rate than the waste management industry also makes it a better option for people who are seeking jobs in the field.

Contact a Reliable Recycling Company for Quality Recycling Services

Cali Carting Inc. is a full-service solid waste and recycling company serving the New Jersey area. The employees who work at Cali Carting Inc. are a prime example of why so many people desire to become apart of the growing industry, especially since the company provides a variety of different recycling services that require multiple people to get the job done.

Dumpster Rentals For Your 2017 Fall Home Maintenance

September 21st, 2017 by rosario

As summer comes to an end and fall begins to take shape, especially in the Northeast, it is a popular time for homeowners to take on home remodeling and maintenance projects. Cooler weather is the perfect time for you to tackle these projects that you may have forgot to do or pushed off during the summer. Whether it’s an exterior project or an interior project, you will need a dumpster rental for all of your waste. Below we talk about the most common fall remodeling and fall maintenance projects for which you will need a dumpster.

Roof Repair and Patching

The weather in the summer, including high heat, severe winds and thunderstorms, can do a number to the roof of your home. Due to this, it can cause concern for your roof and attic, and may require some roof repair and/or patching. You need to address these problems in the fall because if you don’t, fall and winter weather can cause serious damage to your roof and home. Make sure that when you repair and patch your roof that you are renting the proper dumpster size for your project.

Clean Out Your Gutters

It is important to make sure your gutters and downspouts are completely clean before the fall weather begins. Leaves and rainy fall weather can clog them easily if they are not completely clean before the fall. You don’t want your gutters or downspouts to be clogged because it can cause serious damage to your home. This is a project you should do in conjunction with repairing your roof, so it also will require the same dumpster for your project.

Door and Window Remodeling

A dumpster is definitely required when it comes to any home remodeling project, especially to the exterior of your home. For the fall and winter seasons, you may want to consider upgrading your windows and doors. If you decide to change your windows, consider double-paned windows because they are energy-efficient and can withstand colder temperatures.

Siding Replacement Project

The siding on your home can take a beating throughout the year, especially during the thunderstorm-heavy summer season. You should consider replacing your siding in the fall, so that it is in top shape before a brutal winter hits. Making sure the exterior of your home is in good condition for the colder fall and winter seasons is extremely important for the safety of your home.

Kitchen or Bathroom Remodeling

Contrary to popular belief, fall also is a great time for interior home remodeling, especially to rooms like your kitchen and your bathroom. Fall is the last season of the year in which you can really get some home remodeling done. Both of these remodeling projects also will require a dumpster rental. The nature of your project will determine which dumpster size to choose.

Deck Repairs

Lastly, the final fall renovation project that’ll require a dumpster is making repairs and changes to your outdoor deck. Whether you need a new deck, make changes to it, repair it or completely re-stain it, you should get a dumpster for your project. This is a smart move to make in the fall, so that your deck is completely repaired for next spring and summer.

Dumpster Rentals in New Jersey

In New Jersey, no company offers better dumpster rental services than Cali Carting in Kearny.

3 Ways to Dispose of Renovation Waste

August 30th, 2017 by rosario

renovation waste

Renovations can be a hassle. Not only do you have to think about the design and materials needed, but you also probably have to adjust to a new sense of living while construction is happening. The last thing you want to worry about is how to dispose of the leftover material or furniture from the renovation. Here are a few ways you can get rid of all the scrap from your renovation project and begin to enjoy your renovated space clear of debris.

1. Donate Your Renovation Waste

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. That creaky chair in the kitchen might be someone else’s blessing. That old table with the chips in it could be the exact rustic look your neighbor is going for. There is no telling what your old materials could mean to someone else after you complete your renovation.

If the items you are looking to get rid of are still in good condition then there are plenty of drop-off centers to choose from. Check out your local area for organizations and the rules regarding the donation process.

It is important to remember as your renovation progresses that keeping these old items in good condition could be essential to the ability to donate them. So, make sure as things are moved and replaced that you are cautious on how they are handled.

2. Dispose Renovation Waste Yourself

Sometimes things only get done right if you do it yourself. Not to mention you could save a bunch of money doing it this way. All you have to do is find out where the nearest landfill is and take your waste there. But be aware that you can’t just dump everything in one place, landfills usually have certain sections for specific items.

It is important that everything is sorted ahead of time. Large pieces of furniture and scrap are usually in the same area and smaller debris tend to be placed sporadically in other areas. Just contact the landfill to get the information on the rules and regulations. A large truck will also be needed to cart over all your waste. If this seems like too much work, check option three!

3. Leave it to the Professionals

The most important thing to do when dealing with a waste removal company is to be completely clear on everything you want gone so that nothing gets left behind. That may seem like an obvious notion but it is easy to forget certain things and it happens more often than you might think.

You could go with your local dumpster service but sometimes it pays to go with a company that specializes in waste removal. While you can use your usual service they will usually charge you a fat fee for the larger bulk whereas you can get a better deal with a specialized service. In either case, give the company a call and let them know how much waste you have and what specific parcels need to be disposed of.

Renting roll-off trash bins is also a popular thing to do. Usually around 10-40 yards, these massive containers can hold a large amount of renovation waste. These bins are very large so check to make sure your property can contain it before you rent one. If your property isn’t big enough you can always contact your town/city and ask for a permit to put the trash bin in the street while you load the waste.
