“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.

“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.

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.

Remember when you first moved into your home and it was empty? A blank canvas full of possibilities. Then came the clutter. And your blank canvas — a clutter free home — became more crowded and cramped with each passing year. Where did all that space go?

Did you know, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, 32 percent of people with two-car garages are only able to park one car inside due to clutter? And the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) says 80 percent of what we keep we never actually use.

Posted by John Ferracuti

Nov 13, 2014 8:00:00 AM

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.
