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 (416) 460-2862 or email us at, we’re happy to help!
