You’ve rolled up your sleeves. Your somewhat unreliable brother-in-law just pulled up — on time — ready to help. In just a few short hours, that cluttered basement of yours will be empty and unbelievably spacious.

10 Added Benefits You Might Not Expect From Your Dumpster Rental

Posted by John Ferracuti

Feb 28, 2015 5:07:00 PM

Consumers today are incredibly smart. So when a company says you’re getting something for free, you know darn well that “free” really isn’t all that free. Nine times out of 10, you’re either a) paying for it through the inflated cost of another service or b) it should be included in the product or service in the first place.

I’ll be honest, when it comes to the world of residential dumpster rental, you won’t find the word “free” casually thrown around. There are, however, some added benefits you might not expect from your rental experience. And while we can’t speak for all rental companies, we can speak from experience and on behalf of our Bin There Dump That local franchise operators.

Here are 10 added benefits you might not expect from a residential dumpster rental:

Home Renovation Ideas: What Should I Consider Before Removing A Wall?

Posted by John Ferracuti

Feb 25, 2015 8:28:00 AM

If you’re like me, it’s easy to get lost in all of those home renovation shows on HGTV and DIY Network. The kitchens are sleek and modern; the budgets are ridiculous; wall demolition looks unbelievably therapeutic; and the open floor plans are something on everyone’s must-have list.  

And while everyone doesn’t have the budget for an entirely new kitchen, it’s a safe bet there’s at least one wall standing in the way of you and that spacious, open floor plan you’ve always wanted. One interior wall that almost always gets the ax is the dividing wall between the kitchen and the dining room or family room. Another renovation trend is to remove the dividing wall between your bathroom and master bedroom.

By removing a wall, you’re creating an entirely new and flexible living space in your home, something most new home buyers are seeking these days.

Now that we’re in the thick of tax season — and on the heels of spring, too — this time of year serves as a good reminder of the benefits of decluttering. In today’s post, I’m talking about one benefit in particular — donating household goods to a qualified organization for a tax deduction.

And while it’s too late to donate items now for a tax deduction on your 2014 tax return, there’s no reason you have to wait until December to do the legwork. Get a jump on your 2015 return by following five simple steps:

Top 5 Winter Home Improvement Projects For Instant Impact

Posted by John Ferracuti

Feb 2, 2015 4:00:02 PM

In my opinion, winter can be the best time of the year to really get things done — on the inside of your home. Thanks to snow on the ground and chilly temperatures in the air, winter does a nice job putting our outdoor distractions — yard work, washing the car, golf — on hold for a few months.

So why not spend that time stuck in your house working on your house? Feel productive this winter, instead of trapped. Here are my five favorite winter home improvement projects that will immediately enhance the look and feel of your home — without breaking the bank or your back.

Why Should I Only Hire Licensed, Bonded and Insured Contractors?

“Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.”

It’s okay to not like Murphy’s Law. Honestly, I don’t know anyone who does. That’s because it makes us think about the worst case scenario. And no one ever really wants to think about worst case scenarios — especially when home renovations are involved. It just sounds costly and dangerous.

For some peace of mind, Bin There Dump That likes to inform our customers that we’re a licensed, bonded and insured dumpster rental company. And anytime you invite a skilled laborer onto your property — roofers, plumbers, electricians, etc. — it’s wise to hire only those that are licensed, bonded and insured, as well.

Dumpster Rental FAQ: What Is Considered Household Hazardous Waste?

Posted by John Ferracuti

Jan 15, 2015 7:00:00 AM

“Is there anything that can’t go into the dumpster?” and “What is considered household hazardous waste?” are two frequently asked questions many of our Bin There Dump That customers ask us.

For home renovations, spring cleaning and even failed yard sales, residential dumpster rental can be the best way to go when you have a lot of “stuff” to get rid of. And while drywall, scrap wood, that rusted out trampoline and those boxes full of newspapers from the 1980s will feel right at home in a Bin There Dump That bin, it’s important to know that household hazardous waste cannot go into the dumpster.

With that said, let me take this opportunity to explain what waste is considered hazardous — and what options you have to dispose of it.

The Top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Trends For 2015

Posted by John Ferracuti

Jan 7, 2015 5:01:13 PM

Generally speaking, the relationship we have with our bathrooms can be a bit rushed and, at times, inconvenient. When we’re home, it’s the kitchen, bedroom and family room that tend to get most of our attention. And that’s totally normal, but maybe not for much longer.

As many post-recession homeowners continue to invest in their homes rather than pack them up and look elsewhere, the bathroom is one room in the house getting some spa-like attention after all and topping remodel lists for 2015.
