What Materials are Banned?

The party and/or property owner contracting the bin is responsible and liable to ensure no banned or hazardous materials are present in the bin and are fully liable for any/all costs and surcharges related to the infraction including, but not limited to separation costs, reloading charges, penalties, bylaw infractions, HAZMAT costs etc. We needed to say that to make our lawyers happy.

How Much Room Is Need To Place A Dumpster?
In addition to the disposal bin & truck length, it takes more room to place a bin in the bins “roll-off” the rear of the truck. This requires an additional 30 feet to 50 feet to place or approximately 4 car lengths.
Can The Bin Be Placed Where I Want It?
Most of the time we can accommodate bin placement requests. Our drivers do have the final discretion on bin placement as safety and ensuring no property damage occurs is a priority for us. Factors such as the turning radius of the truck, length and height of the needed area to offload the bin do impact placement. Truck Rails need to rise about 20 feet so low hanging power lines, tree branches, car ports, or garages can also impede.
Can The Bin Damage Property?
Yes, it is possible. Placing a bin on a level hard surface significantly minimizes/negates potential damage. Disposal Bins have large rollers on the rear that allow them to roll off the truck onto the ground. Bins weigh 3 tons and the trucks much more. Bins can sink on lawns that appear dry. Asphalt driveways in the summer can have divots left in them from the weight of the bin. We can place wood down for the bin rails to sit on. Often this reduces the risk of damage to driveways. We kindly note we will not assume liability for damaged sidewalks, driveways and other property within and beyond the curb line (our lawyers made us say that).
How High Can The Bin Be Filled?
The material in the Bin must be loaded with even weight distribution and not exceed the Bin height. Bins, by law, must be tarped to safely transport them. Materials may be removed, or bin pickup refused if the load cannot be transported safely. In either case, a fee will apply to offload material or return for a pick up once the bin is loaded properly.
Can I Move The Bin?
No. For safety and insurance reasons as well as to negate potential damage to the bin or property only Bin There can move a Bin. For a reasonable fee, we will move the bin if it is required. Any damage that is not normal wear and tear will be the responsibility of the client.
