Frequently asked questions

 

WHICH BIN DO I NEED AND WHAT ITEMS CAN GO INSIDE THE BIN?

5 yard bins for concrete, dirt, asphalt and bricks.

5, 10, 12, 15, 20 and 40 yard bins can be used for any type of garbage (except dirt, concrete, bricks): renovations, demolitions, shingles, junk, furniture, wood, appliances, carpets, mattress, tires (please call our office for tire disposal).

 

WHAT ITEMS ARE NOT PERMITTED?

Propane tanks, fire extinguishers, all hazardous materials. Please note that propane tanks and fire extinguishers should never be disposed with garbage, they are very dangerous even if they are empty. Call the municipality that you live in – they offer a day when you can bring these items in.

 

HOW DO I LOAD THE BIN?

The bin should not be loaded higher than the rim (drivers will not pick up the bin if it is unsafe for them to carry it on the roads). The waste should be even throughout the bin.

 

HOW DO I PAY?

We accept all major credit cards, cheque or cash. Credit card number is given when bin is ordered, cheque and cash is given to the driver (we do require a deposit on each bin that is ordered). Once the bin is picked up we will determine the weight, if we owe you a refund on the deposit that was originally paid, a cheque with an invoice will be mailed out to you.

 

HOW DO WE DETERMINE THE WEIGHT?

Once the bin is picked up, the driver will take the waste to a dump station that uses a scale to weigh the total amount in the bin. This is done by the truck going into the loading station. The weight plus the weight of the bin equals the total gross weight. The tare weight is the deducted to give you a total net weight. A slip is then given which states the final weight of contents inside the bin.

 

WHAT IS YOUR DELIVERY TIME?

We can usually deliver the same day. Pickups are either the same day or next day.
