Renting A Dumpster For Your Landscape Projects

Como Disposal - Monday, March 25, 2019
As the temperatures rise, so will the urge to get outdoors. Are you itching to get in the yard and clean up after a long winter?

How you dispose of your landscaping debris will depend on the size of the job. Yard waste bags are ideal if you are doing a basic clean up, but they can only hold so much. If your project involves a lot of debris, then you may want to rent a dumpster to make your cleanup much easier. It can be placed in a convenient location, so you aren’t left with piles of waste on your lawn.

Dumpsters come in various sizes, so assess your project and determine the size you will need. If you aren’t sure, contact the dumpster rental company and they can assist you.

Projects may include:
Tearing out an old brick patio, pathway, wood deck or driveway
Clearing brush and other debris
Creating new flower beds
Clearing downed trees and overgrown bushes
Garden shed removal

You can use the bin to dispose of:
Old decking, fencing and lumber
Garden debris: leaves, branches, trees, hedge clippings, sod, dirt etc.
Lawn clippings
Gravel, bricks, concrete
Old patio furniture
Note: you can not put liquid waste or hazardous materials in the bin.

If you will be getting a roll-off bin, there should be at least a 16-foot-wide access to the bin site to accommodate the truck and its mechanics. If it's going on the street, make sure you have the proper city permits. No vehicles should be parked near the bin site at a time you are expecting a placement, exchange, or pickup. If the bin is being placed on a driveway or other asphalt that is in good condition, you may want to place large pieces of plywood where the bin is to be located to avoid damage.

Make this the year that you tackle your overgrown backyard and create a spectacular oasis that you can enjoy all summer.

Always discuss the debris or waste you are wanting to dispose of with your dumpster rental company first. They’ll guide you to what’s allowed and what isn't. Call Como Excavation, Demolition and Disposal at 888-749-1335 or email us at, we’re happy to help!

Spring Cleaning Tips - Benefits of Renting a Dumpster

Como Disposal - Wednesday, March 13, 2019
With temperatures warming up, many of us get the Spring-cleaning bug. For some it is a simple surface clean but if you are like me, you might be ready to purge your house of too much clutter. Here are a few tips on how to make this task easier.

1. Make a Plan 

Deciding to get rid of things we have accumulated over the years can seem overwhelming but if you have a plan it can be easier. Tackle one room at a time to make the task less daunting.

2. Get in a Zone

It is essential for me to get in a zone to tackle my spring cleaning as efficiently as possible. I set out all the cleaning products I will need, have garbage bags and boxes ready and put on my favourite playlist to keep my spirits up!

3. Get Rid of Clutter

Try to remove every item from the room. It is a time-consuming process, but you can take inventory of what you want to keep and what you want to dispose of. Once emptied, it is easy to do a thorough dusting and vacuuming. Place the items you want to keep back in the room and dispose of the ones you want to get rid of. If you haven’t used an item in a year, do you really need it? Consider donating your gently used items to your local shelter.

4. Rent a Dumpster

Large projects like cleaning out the garage or attic will definitely require a dumpster. Dumpster rentals are a hassle-free way to dispose of your unwanted items. You will be able to throw away large furniture, carpets, appliances, mattresses etc. without having to wait for your towns big trash day pick-up. By renting a dumpster you can fill it with your junk and then have it hauled away at your convenience. Have your dumpster positioned so that you can quickly and easily fill it.

Getting your Spring cleaning done early will allow you to enjoy the warmer weather and the upcoming fun Summer months. When you are finished you will feel that a huge weight (of stuff!) has been lifted from you.
