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.

3 Ways to Dispose of 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.

Slow Down to Get Around Program

There has recently been legislation signed into law to help protect New Jersey’s sanitation workers. This bill is in response to a 2013 motor vehicle death of Freehold resident Michael Massey, while working as a sanitation worker. Sanitation work can be a dangerous environment because you are constantly competing for space on the road so that you can effectively do your job. The law will require all motorists to make a lane change or reduce their speed in the presence of a sanitation vehicle, so that similar incidents will never happen again. It is an extremely dangerous situation when motorists aren’t paying attention to sanitation workers getting on and off a truck.

What is Slow Down to Get Around?

Almost everyone has been in a situation where you are stuck behind a garbage truck and you’re in a hurry to get somewhere. Most of you have also in that situation got angry and impatient with the sanitation workers in front of you. You try to pull around the garbage truck quickly and when you do so, you are endangering not only the workers, but also yourself. There is a good chance you could hit or clip the garbage collector who is emptying a cart or walking back to the truck. What you need to keep in mind that the garbage collector is just doing his or her job and is someone’s spouse, someone’s friend and someone’s sibling. It is not worth risking someone’s life to get to where you need to go a few minutes earlier.

How to Help Sanitation Workers

Mostly every person is taught and knows how to slow down and wait for school buses, drive slowly in construction zones, and move over for emergency vehicles. It is ironic how everyone knows how to do this, but they are not taught or don’t know how to do so for garbage trucks. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the solid waste industry are now making efforts to educate all drivers to help prevent accidents, injuries and deaths in garbage collectors. Below are some simple ways to help NOISH in their efforts to prevent any future accidents:

·      Slow Down Your Car

When an approaching garbage truck is making its rounds, you should slow down your vehicle. You should even stop if it is necessary to allow the workers to do their jobs. The more cautious you are with your speed around garbage trucks the safer the situation will be.

·      Keep a Look Out For Workers

Before you think about passing the garbage truck, you need to look all around for workers to locate them. Before you can slowly move around the truck you need to keep an eye out for workers.

·      Check For Opposite Traffic

There is always a possibility of traffic coming from the opposite direction when you are trying to pass around a garbage truck. Before you go around you should slowly check that no one would be coming the other way so that no accident is caused.

·      Do Not Distract Yourself

When you are driving near a garbage truck, you should not do anything distracting. You should not text, talk on the phone, change your GPS or change the radio station while you are passing by the truck, or driving in general for that matter.
