Amazing Solar Powered Homes

One of the first things that I did when I moved into my new home was start looking into my options for solar power. I’m a big believer in reducing dependence on natural resources that are unsustainable, and one of the best ways to do that is by using natural resources that are sustainable, like sunlight. I was thrilled to have my own home that I could customize with solar power. I found that there were all kinds of options for solar power besides those big clunky solar panels. I eventually settled on solar shingles for my roof, and I’m looking into solar powered windows, too. I started this blog to share more information about solar trends with people who are as interested in sustainable energy as I am. I hope to help you understand how contractors can help with these large projects!

Need More Space For Cleanup? Helpful Tips For Renting A Waste Container For Your Home Improvement Project

If you've decided that it's time to tackle a big home improvement project, don't forget about the garbage. Home improvement projects can generate a lot of trash. If you're not prepared, you could be stuck with mounds of trash building up in your yard, which means you'll also be paying the dump fees once you find a truck to haul everything away. Or, you could simply rent a waste container for your yard. Renting a waste container will give you the space you need to toss your trash, keep your yard clear, and reduce the landfill costs. If you're going to rent a waste container, here's some information that will help you through the process.

Understand the Total Cost

If this will be your first time renting a waste container, you'll need to familiarize yourself with the total cost. There are several fees associated with the rental of waste containers. First, there's the base rental fee for the waste container you've chosen. Next, there's the cost to drop off and pick up the waste container. Finally, there's the actual cost to dump your waste at the local landfill. Knowing the total costs will help you budget for your project.

Know What You're Renting

When it comes to renting a waste container for your home improvement project, you'll need to know what you're renting. There are several different types of waste containers available. There's the basic curbside trash receptacle that's used for weekly residential trash. Next, there are the dumpsters that are available for weekly and monthly rental. They're larger than your curbside trash receptacles and are excellent for small home improvement projects and home cleanup projects. Finally, there are the large roll-off waste containers. These containers are delivered on a flatbed truck and are useful for much larger projects.

Contact the City About Permits

If you're going to be renting a basic dumpster for your project, you shouldn't need a permit for it, especially if it will be placed in your yard. However, if you'll be renting a roll-off waste container, and you plan on placing it either on or near the street, you'll need to contact the city about permits. In some cases, the city may require you to obtain a permit before you'll be allowed to place a roll-off waste container on your property.

Allow Space for Pick-Up

With ordinary dumpsters, the trash company will come out and empty it about once a week. However, if you're going to be renting a roll-off waste container, the entire container will be removed from your property when it's filled, and then it will be replaced with an empty one. If the driver is unable to access your container, it might not be removed, which means you'll be stuck with a filled container. Not only that, but you may be required to pay a fine for the extra trip that will be required. To avoid problems, always make sure that the area around your waste container has adequate space for pickup.

For more information and options for waste removal, contact a company that rents out waste containers, like Ground Effects Hauling Inc.
