    However, if it’s your first time renting a dumpster bin, you may wonder where to start, what to consider or how to rent a garbage bin. In this post, we share some of the essential things to know before renting a dumpster. We also share our top tips to rent a bin. Let’s get started.


    Before you schedule your dumpster, it’s important to pick up the right spot for your bin. Remember, you are renting a dumpster to make things easy and convenient. So you want to place it in a spot that will improve efficiency whilst reducing problems with pick-up and delivery and accidents.

    When choosing a spot for your bin, check for obstructions or overhanging wires that can affect safe delivery and pick-up. As a general rule of thumb, make sure there’s a free space of at least 22 feet above the garbage bin. This way, you can avoid any unintended costs owing to complicated delivery and pick-up.

    It’s equally important to ensure you have enough space to access your property and remove the debris. Another aspect to consider is to ensure the delivery driver can make a 3-point U-turn when delivering and picking up your rental garbage bin.

    If you intend to place the rental bin on the street, you must get in touch with your local council to check whether you will need a permit to do so. You must find out if there are any regulations about how long you can place the dumpster on the street.

    So, you should take into consideration next points:

    • Pick up the right spot for your bin;
    • Make sure there’s a free space of at least 22 feet above the garbage bin;
    • Clarify whether you need to obtain additional permission to place the bin outside.

    Size Does Matter

    Size Does Matter

    When renting a garbage bin, size is an important aspect to consider. The size of the garbage bin has a direct bearing on the costs – the bigger the bin, the higher the cost.

    You don’t want to end up with a dumpster that’s too small for your needs. You may end up hiring a second dumpster later on or sending the bin back, delaying your project and adding to the costs.

    At the same time, you also want to avoid overweight problems. Your dumpster rental company may charge you if you dump more weight than covered by the size. Consider getting a dumpster that’s at least one size bigger than the one you are considering for your needs.

    Having said that, the size of the dumpster depends on the type of garbage you will be dumping.

    • Some materials like scrap metal, carpet and drywall can fill up the dumpster quickly.
    • On the other hand, items such as concrete, bricks, dirt, rocks and cement can add weight to the garbage bin.

    Gta Bins is your dumpster rental company in Toronto. We can help you choose the right size based on what you want to dump.  With us you can rent small 4 or 8 -yard bins, medium 10 or 12-yard bins and large 14 or 20-yard junk bins.

    Know What You Can and Can't Dispose of in the Bin

    <span>Know What You Can</span> and Can't Dispose of in the Bin

    Most garbage rental companies restrict the use of their bins for dumping mixed materials. Materials such as gravel and fill should not be mixed with other materials.

    You must also note that there are certain items you cannot dump owing to their hazardous nature.

    These materials include:

    • herbicides;
    • pesticides;
    • paint;
    • dead animals;
    • radioactive materials;
    • propane tanks;
    • asbestos;
    • motor oil;
    • sealed cylinders and barrels;
    • solvents;
    • flammable liquids;
    • fluorescent tubes and batteries.

    Dumping these hazardous materials is against the law.

    If you are thinking of rentibg a bin for garbage to dump hazardous waste, check with your provider if that’s legal and whether they accept such waste.

    When renting a dumpster, the biggest thing to keep in mind is to work with a reliable and reputed dumpster rental company. In your search for a dumpster rental service, don’t ask “where can I rent a junk bin?” This strategy will lead you astray and you may end up choosing the cheapest quote or the first quote you receive.

    Another important aspect to consider when choosing a dumpster rental provider is their disposal methods. Are they proficient at handling waste? Are they known to dispose of waste responsibly and safely? Check what their past customers have to say about their service and experience.
