Merging Personal Space With School And Work Life In Your Indianapolis Home



Merging Personal Space With School And Work Life In Your Indianapolis Home

With recent changes to how we accomplish the things that we need to do each day a new home office or school space may now be on your mind. When planning a new space geared towards productivity consider the following:

1. Who will use the space? Elementary and middle school students will likely do better in areas where a parent can keep an eye on them and ensure that they're staying on task while they navigate virtual learning. A small desk in a common area of the house may best serve their needs.

For teens, college students, and adults a bigger space with room for larger laptop, notebooks, and work related files and papers is necessary.

2. Do you have an area that could serve a dual purpose? 

An office space in a guest room could work for someone that thrives in peace and quiet.

A coat closet located close to a family room can be converted in to a study nook for children and then easily converted back to storage space.

Multipurpose furniture such bookshelves with desk attachments and coffee tables with storage space can offer temporary work space for those navigating an in-person/virtual split schedule. A small console table can work as a desk combined with a smaller kitchen chair until each is ready to return to their original use once work and learning is solely in-person again.

3. What is the lighting and temperature like? A well lit and climate controlled space is necessary regardless of the age of the person using it. Consider natural lighting that may need to be controlled with curtains or blinds. Add a space heater for areas that may be drafty or a small table fan for areas that need improved air flow.

4. What storage items do you already own that could be put to use in a new way? Ensuring that your new productive space doesn't turn in to a cluttered mess is important. Take a look around the house to see what items you already own that can have a new life in your new space. Baskets work great for storing school supplies. Beach totes can be put to use to store books and electronics. Serving trays can corral paperwork and keep desktops from looking disheveled.

The goal at the end of each work/school day should be an area that is clean and tidy and ready for use the next day.

If you find yourself needing to complete a home clean out before creating your ideal work space, give us a call at Bin There Dump That! We can be reached by phone or text at 317-590-1973 to answer any questions that you may have about ordering a dumpster in the Indianapolis area.

Can I Get A Dumpster in Indianapolis If I Don't Have A Driveway



One of the joys of owning a historic home in Indianapolis is the charm and character of both the home and the community. Unfortunately many historic homes and neighborhoods, such as Lockerbie Square and Woodruff Place, lack traditional driveways. You may be wondering what are your dumpster options if you aren't living in suburbia with spacious driveways?

Some historic areas have alleyways that our residential friendly trucks can navigate to place a bin on a parking area on the rear of the property. We do need a certain amount of clearance so it's best to give us a call to discuss your access options. We may even request that you text over a few photos of the alley and property to evaluate if we'll be able to deliver a bin for you. We never want to say no just based on the address without checking first to see if we can make it work for you.

Another option is called a Live Load. Our driver will arrive with the dumpster, off-load it in a safe spot, and then you have 15 minutes to load the bin. You'll probably need some fast moving friends or helpers in order to make sure you get everything in to the dumpster within the allotted time.

If you don't have anywhere to place a dumpster on your property you can contact your local permit office to see if you can be granted a permit to place the dumpster on the street. Approval is often based on local ordinances, traffic, and any safety issues that a bin would present such as blocking a hydrant, obstructing a traffic sign, etc. We recommend allowing ample time to contact the appropriate office and request a permit if you need to go that route.

 Give us a call today to discuss your unique dumpster needs!

Holiday Home Prep

A great way to head in to the holidays and the new year is with a clean and organized home. Make the most of these upcoming weeks and let us help with one of our clean and green dumpsters delivered right to your Indianapolis area home.

Once your dumpster has been delivered simply place your unwanted items in the bin, we even have easy open doors on the end so you can carry items in. Then we'll pick up the bin and take care of disposal.


Make space for your guests - Empty out that bedroom that's become a collecting spot for old furniture, broken toys, and old clothes. Your guests will need a quiet spot to rest, a place for their clothes and personal items, and a storage spot for their luggage. 

Create room for organization - Closets, basements, and attics aren't useful if they're packed and overflowing. Make your storage spaces work for you by cleaning them out and donating or disposing of unused items.

Dispose of unused or broken holiday decor - If your artificial tree is on its last leg, or you've been saving ornaments and lights that have seen better days, it's the perfect time to clean those out. Resist the urge to pack them away to deal with another year. Once your holiday celebrations are over you can toss that dried out live tree and any garlands or wreaths into the dumpster.

Ready to place your dumpster order? Give us a call at 317-590-1973 or visit our Contact Us page to get in touch.

"Do your dumpsters have doors?"
Yes! Each of our residential friendly dumpsters have easy open doors on the end of the dumpster. Those doors make loading heavy and bulky items a breeze.

"I don't know what size of dumpster to rent. Can you help?"
We would be happy to discuss your project with you to help you determine the perfect size dumpster for your specific project needs. If you're between sizes we generally recommend renting the larger size in order to ensure that you have space for all of your items.

A good place to start when thinking about what size of dumpster to rent is what are the dimensions of the largest items that you need to dispose of. A couch or a mattress consumes a large amount of space quickly. Check out the next question for additional information about the dumpster sizes that we carry.

We offer four sizes of dumpsters to meet the needs of a range of projects. Our 6 yard dumpster is designed for masonry waste, while our 20 yard dumpster is great for cleaning out a house prior to a move.
