There are no stupid questions. (OK, we know that’s not true. Anyone who’s spent any time on the Internet knows there are plenty of stupid questions out there.)

Asking the right questions, though, can help consumers save money and aggravation. And at Bin There Dump That, we encourage anyone interested in renting a dumpster bin to ask a lot of questions.

Many people haven’t rented a dumpster before and might not even know what questions to ask. It’s our belief that the more you know, the more likely you’ll be to rent from one of our franchise operators.

With those two thoughts in mind, we offer share some questions you might want to ask before you make your final decision.

7 Tips For Staying Sane During Your Major Home Renovation

Posted by John Ferracuti

Nov 7, 2014 8:00:00 AM

A home renovation can be one of the most rewarding and frustrating experiences any family can go through. Combining work, school, pets and kids with dirt, noise, workers and rooms that can’t be used — and you’ve got a recipe for family discord, stress and even temporary mental breakdowns.

Our best advice: Visit an all-inclusive resort for the duration of the project. All right, that might get a bit expensive. If you don’t have a wealthy relative willing to share a wing of his or her mansion, then you’re going to need to figure out how to live in a construction zone. It won’t be easy, but with the right attitude and well-thought-out strategies, you can make the experience more pleasant.

Oct 30, 2014 8:00:00 AM

For all our technology and knowledge, life is filled with mysteries. Are we alone in the universe? Can pigs pull a hamstring? Is there another word for thesaurus? And perhaps the greatest mystery of all: What happens to the stuff you throw into your rental dumpster bin after it leaves your property?

For many customers, the old adage “out of sight, out of mind” applies when it comes to the stuff they deposit into a Bin There Done That dumpster bin. Once they rid their homes of material they no longer want or need, they simply don’t care where it goes.

But some like to know where the bits and pieces of their lives end up. However, like many things in life, the answer is a bit more complicated than it might seem on the surface.

The kids are gone, off to college where they can gain an education, get a great high-paying job and take care of you in your old age. In the meantime, you’ve got some work to do. The nest is empty.

If this were a movie script, the argument would be over turning their vacant bedrooms into a sewing room, an exercise space or a place to meditate on the meaning of life. But before that debate can be settled, the rooms have to be cleaned. We’re not talking about running a vacuum, and it’s far more than just the bedrooms that need work.

What Is Minimalist Living? How Do You Achieve It?

Posted by John Ferracuti

Sep 25, 2014 3:13:21 PM

Comedian George Carlin did a hilarious routine about “stuff.” In it, Carlin suggests “your house is a place to keep your stuff…while you go out and get more stuff.”

That’s a pretty apt description for many. Our homes are filled with beautiful furniture, amazing artwork, appliances, knickknacks, electronics, books and a variety of other tchotchkes.

For many these things enrich their lives. For others, they create clutter. For that latter group, the backlash against consumerism has led some to make a 180-degree turn and live a more austere lifestyle. Those seriously opposed to collecting stuff have adopted an approach known as minimalism.
