FAQs

1. What size are your bins

We have 3 different bin sizes:

14 cubic yard bin approx. 14'L  x  8' W  x  4' D
20 cubic yard bin approx. 20'L  x  8' W  x  4' D
40 cubic yard bin approx. 20'L  x  8' W  x  8' D


2. What can I put in the bin?

It is probably easier to first state what cannot go into the bin. Please, no tires, paint, oil, liquid waste or hazardous waste. Also, no cylinders (propane) or aerosol cans.

Otherwise, we accept renovation and construction material, roofing, wood, furniture and other household waste, appliances, yard waste and generally any solid non-hazardous waste.  Clean concrete can be placed in a "concrete only" bin.  Call for further clarification.


3. How long can I keep the bin?

You have use of the bin for up to 5 days. Please call when done to arrange for pick-up. Same day pick up can sometimes be arranged if required. Depending on how busy we are, there is usually some flexibility if you need the bin for more than 5 days.


4. How much does it cost?

Generally, the cost of the bin depends on the type of material you are putting into the bin and the location we are sending the bin to.  Please contact us and  we will be pleased to give you a quote on the spot by telephone or e-mail.
