3 Ways to Save Money on Your Bin Rental

To reduce costs for your bin rental while clearing out the same amount of space in your home, consider the following tips:

1. Donate Items First

One of the easiest and most effective ways to save money on your bin rental is to look at the items you wish to dispose of and determine if any of them can be donated. If any items can be donated, contact local thrift stores, charities, friends, or family members to see if they would be willing to take them. This will allow you to clear up space in your home without overloading your bin or accidentally placing prohibited items in it. In addition to donatable items, look for items that can be recycled and dispose of them properly as placing these items in your bin can result in additional fees.

2. Do not Place Prohibited Items in Your Bin

While it may be more convenient to place every item in your bin, this can quickly become expensive if you are disposing of prohibited items. Examples of prohibited materials include hazardous waste, oil, fuel, chemicals, batteries, and electronic products. Should you need to dispose of any of these items, there are distinct processes and facilities for each type. A junk removal professional can also assist you by providing this information if needed.

3. Have a Plan in Place

Before loading your bin, you should create a plan of action. This will ensure that your bin is efficiently loaded and organized, significantly reducing the risk of overfilling it. For example, you can ensure that any heavy items are easily accessible prior to delivery of the bin. These items can then be neatly placed and organized in the bin, allowing you to fit more in it. One of the biggest advantages of a detailed plan is that it will keep you on track, helping you avoid any potential late fees or daily costs.
