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.

Top 5 Questions Asked When Ordering a Dumpster

Top Questions Asked When Ordering a Dumpster 

We take many calls from Indianapolis homeowners that are renting a roll-off dumpster for the first time. With that comes a lot of common questions. Here's the top 5 questions that are asked when ordering a dumpster bin.



"Do you deliver to my area?"
We deliver dumpsters to Indianapolis and the surrounding areas of Avon, Brownsburg, Plainfield, Zionsville, Carmel, Fishers, and Greenwood. We also delivery to many other central Indiana communities. Please give us a call to verify if we serve your location or visit our service area page.

"How long can I keep the dumpster?"
Your rental agreement covers up to seven days. Should you wrap up your project prior to the seven days just let us know and we'll be happy to pick up the dumpster early.

"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.

"What are the sizes of your dumpsters?"
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. We also offer 10 and 15 yard dumpsters for projects such cleaning out a garage or basement.  Additional details of the size range can be found on our website.

Winter Prep To Do List

If you've got some extra time this holiday weekend, make sure that you've got your home ready for the Indiana winter weather that we have coming.



Cover your outdoor furniture and store the cushions in a dry area - Indiana winters can be tough on items left exposed to the weather. Make the most of your investment on by covering or moving outdoor items to areas with limited exposure to wind, snow, and ice.

Store away water hoses and shut off exterior faucets - Cycles of freezing and thawing water can damage hoses and faucets. It's best to complete this task earlier rather than later.

Check your batteries - Test your smoke alarms and make sure that you have a supply of batteries for flashlights in case of a winter storm.

Clear out space for coats, boots, and winter sports gear - If your closets and storage areas are overflowing it might be time for a dumpster rental. Check out our recent Donation vs Dumpster article for some help in determining what to donate and what to dispose of.

If you find that a dumpster rental might come in handy for your Indiana winter prep, give us a call at 317-590-1973. Or learn more about our dumpster options on our info page.

Proper Disposal Of Restricted Materials

Your rental agreement does prohibit placement of some items in the dumpster. Items that could be hazardous to people in contact with the bin, and/or the environment must be disposed of in a alternate manner. Many counties in the central Indiana area have established programs to help residents dispose of these items. Some programs are seasonal so it's best to familiarize yourself with disposal opportunities early in the year.

We recommend calling ahead to verify that they'll accept your items if it's not specifically listed on their site.



Marion County Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Sites

Boone County Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center

Hancock County Solid Waste Management District

Hendricks County Tox-Away Days

Johnson County Tox Box

Morgan County Solid Waste Management District

Shelby County Recycling District

If you have any questions about what items may or may not be placed in our dumpsters, please give us a call and let us know.

Donation vs Dumpster

If you're clearing out a home or basement you may have some items that you don't need but that still have some life left in them. If you'd prefer to not dispose of those items in your rented dumpster here's a few alternative options.

Charities - There are several national organizations that accept gently used furniture, household items, and clothing. If you prefer your donations to help people a little closer to home you may check with area churches and shelters that run programs helping people get back on their feet in the Indianapolis area.

Schools - Local schools may be able to use kids and young adult clothing for the nurses office and furniture items for their theater department. It's recommended to call and inquire about their needs prior to dropping off any items.

Scrap haulers - Your local town or city Facebook groups may have people that offer to come pick up some metal items for free or a small charge to cover their fuel. Once collected they break them down and sell the scrap metal.


We're always happy to help with any questions that you may have about our dumpster rentals. Feel free to give us a call or use our Contact Us page and we'll be in touch. You can also check out our handy dumpster rental guide for all the info you need about renting a roll off dumpster in the Indianapolis area.

4. Call us if you're done early - Our rental agreement allows for a seven day rental however we are happy to pick-up the dumpster earlier if you'd like. Prior to our arrival please ensure that it's a level load and no items are sticking up or out of the dumpster. The doors must be shut and secured. Also we'll need clear access to the dumpster. Make sure that you've moved any cars or equipment out of the way to allow a clear path for our truck.
