What Is Littering?



WHAT IS LITTERING?


Littering is, in short, trash that has been disposed of improperly. It simply means throwing some debris on the ground or leaving it lying around at the wrong location. Litter can originate from several places such as construction debris, household, industries etc. Laziness also plays a part, when people don't want to take the time to find somewhere to dispose of their trash. 



Littering is DANGEROUS. All it takes is for some trash to end up on the road and it's an accident waiting to happen! If a small car runs over a large piece of debris or a car swerves to miss the trash on the road, it could cost someone their life!




It's ILLEGAL. You will be fined if caught littering.



It's UGLY



It's HARMFUL. Litter on the ground degrades natural areas, killing plants and animals.

HOW TO LOAD A DUMPSTER

HOW TO LOAD A DUMPSTER



Whether you are moving out of your home or completing a renovation project, having doors on your dumpster is extremely beneficial. Although some dumpster companies may offer single door bins, at Bin There Dump That all of our bins have DOUBLE doors. Double doors help with:

LARGE ITEMS. When you are moving out of your house, you will have large items that you are disposing of. Couches, book shelves, dressers etc. Having double doors on the dumpster help tremendously as you don't have to try and figure out how to get the larger items to fit in just a single door. 

ORGANIZATION. By having doors that make it possible to walk into the dumpster, it makes it much easier for you to organize your debris. By stacking items, you are maximizing your space ensuring that you get all the space you can out of your dumpster. 

NO THROWING OVER THE EDGE. You don't have to throw things over the side of the dumpster! When are you forced to throw heavy or bulky items over the side of a dumpster you may cause injury to your back.



____________________________________________________________________

LEVEL LOAD. Make sure that you do not overfill the bin. Per law we have to be able to secure the items before transporting and the load must be below the top of the container. We talk every step necessary to ensure we are doing our job safely.



Another helpful tip: Load the heavy, bulky items first. Getting the bigger items organized and in the bin helps you make sure you are leaving enough room in the bin for the smaller debris you have to dispose of.

Driveway Protection



DRIVEWAY PROTECTION

PLYWOOD

Bin There Dump That is the only company offering 100% driveway protection. That means OUR drivers lay down the wood before they place the dumpster onto your driveway, ensuring that there is no damage done to your property. With our company providing the wood and training our delivery experts on how to take care of your property we save you time AND money! If you use a dumpster company that does not care for your driveway,  you could be left with rust, cracked concrete, scratches etc. Although purchasing your own wood is an option, using BTDT saves you money by providing the protection! Time is valuable and we know you're busy. You do not have to worry about being present to place the wood out and make sure the driver uses it! With US, every customer gets 100% peace of mind knowing that their driveway is protected.


HOOK LIFT VS CABLE HOIST

When it comes to hook lift vs cable, hook lifts provide more accuracy in dumpster placement as well as maneuverability, where as the cable hoist invariably needs more horizontal open spaces to drop and load a container.  Deliveries and pick up are done quicker with a hook lift and do not require the driver to leave the truck, where as in a cable hoist the driver will need to leave the cab to latch the cable onto the front hook. The cable system can only offload from an elevated platform if it is the same height as the rails on the truck and the truck can back up to the platform. As for unloading on a flat elevated dock, cable hoists do not have that capability.



ROLLING



Along with our driveway protection, we also ensure that the dumpsters have no chance of rolling off of the plywood. By adding the stoppers onto the wood, it eliminates any risk of the dumpster rolling off of the protection. 





HOW IT WORKS
When the driver arrives at the job site they will exit the cab and place the boards on the driveway. After they ensure that the wood is in the exact location it needs to be, they will then lower the dumpster onto your driveway. The dumpster itself never actually touches your driveway as it rolls onto the wood. The stoppers on the wood prevent it from moving from the location it is placed.

14 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD RECYCLE


14 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD RECYCLE

TOILETS

Recycling facilities can use the porcelain and turn it into concrete for roads and other paved areas.

CIGARETTES
This may be the most surprising! The waste from cigarettes can be re-purposed! The cigarettes and packaging are separated and melted down, turning into hard plastic pellets used for a variety of things!

TOOTHBRUSH

The standard toothbrush cannot be tossed into your recycling bin. It's made of hard plastic and nylon bristles. But in an effort to change the fate of many toothbrushes, Colgate and Sam's Club have both partnered with TerraCycle to recycle them.

OLD GREETING CARDS
It seems so wrong to throw them away but you can't keep adding to the drawer full of old cards, can you? Now, you can get rid of them and feel good about doing it! St. Jude's Ranch for Children accepts both new and used greeting cards of all occasions. They can recycle the cards to create new ones to sell. The money raised from the new cards will go towards abused and neglected homeless children.

PHONES, LAPTOPS, ELECTRONICS

There are several options for recycling e-waste. You can donate it to a school or non-profit if it still works properly. There are also electronics recyclers that take old devices to separate and then reuse the materials inside. Or you can also return the device to the manufacturer!

PRESCRIPTIONS
The safest way to recycle medications is through the drug store you received it from. Many pharmacies have mail-back programs at their stores where you can drop off your prescription drugs.

MAKE UP CONTAINERS

After you've gotten down to the last drop of your foundation, don't just toss the container into the trash. Many cosmetic companies offer a discount if you bring in your empty makeup containers.


SHAMPOO BOTTLES


Most shampoo, conditioner, and body wash containers can be recycled along with your plastic water bottles. Don't forget to rinse out the bottles before tossing into the recycling bin.

LIGHTS
When it's time for the Holidays you may be ready to start taking out your decor and lights. But there may be a few strands that have burned out, which you only discovered after untangling them all.
Instead of chucking them in the trash, there are programs that recycle them and pay you in return.


LIGHTLY USED BRAS
According to RedBook Magazine, the average woman owns 9 bras but only uses 6 of them. You can donate your lightly used bra to a local organization to distribute to women who can't afford them. 

COOKING OIL
As odd as it seems to recycle oil, the damage that oil can do to your plumbing makes it totally worth it! To start collecting oil for recycling simply designate a container for the used oil. You can take it to a local recycling center or even your fire department!


OLD GLASSES
You can give someone the gift of good vision! Several organizations will accept your old prescription glasses to help those with the same prescription as you to see better when they cannot afford their glasses!


ALUMINUM FOIL
If you clean your aluminum foil after using it you can take it to your local recycling center. Make sure it is not contaminated with food or oil.

Who is Saint Valentine?

WHAT IS VALENTINE'S DAY?

Every February 14th gifts, flowers, cards and candies are exchanged between loved ones all in celebration of Saint Valentine. But who is mystifying Saint?

THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND

The Catholic church recognizes at least two saints by the name of Valentine. One legend contends that he was a priest, during the third century in Rome. During this time, Emperor Claudis II decided that men with no wife and children at home made better soldiers and outlawed marriage for young men. St. Valentine realizing the injustice of this new law, continued to perform marriages for the young lovers in secret. Once his actions were discovered, Claudis ordered St. Valentine be put to death.

Another story suggest that Valentine may have been put to death for helping Christians escape stringent prisons in Rome. According to one legend, Valentine sent the first valentine greeting himself after falling in love with his jailer's daughter. Before his death, Valentine wrote her a letter and signed it "From your Valentine", a phrase that is still used today. This truth behind this legend is murky, but it emphasizes the meaning of Valentine's Day-LOVE.


Whoever the Saint is behind this holiday, make sure you take the time on February 14th to let your spouse, parents, children or friends know that they are appreciated and loved


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


MARTIN LUTHER KING JR DAY


January 15, 1929 in Atlanta GA, Mrs. Alberta Williams King gave birth to a baby boy, Martin Luther King Jr. Growing up, Dr. King sang in the choir at his family's church. At the age of 6, Dr. King befriended a white child but they were separated as they started school. King suffered from depression through much of his life. In his adolescent years, he initially felt resentment against other races due to the "racial humiliation" that he, his family, and his neighbors often had to endure in the segregated South. At age 12, after the death of his grandmother, King blamed himself and jumped out of a second-story window, thankfully surviving. 



In High School, at Booker T Washington High, he came known for his distinguished public speaking ability. He joined the schools debate team. In 1942, King became the youngest assistant manager of a newspaper delivery station for the Atlanta Journal. During his JR year, he won first prize in an oratorical contest. The respective Morehouse College announced during Kings' JR year that they would accept any student who could pass their entrance exam. At the young age of 15, King passed the exam and entered Morehouse.

At 18, the summer before his last year at Morehouse, Dr. King decided to enter the ministry. Graduating at 19, with a BA in sociology, he then enrolled in Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, PA. At Crozer, King was elected president of the student body. In his third year he became romantically involved with the white daughter of an immigrant woman who worked as a cook in the cafeteria. King planned to marry her but was advised against it by friends. They convinced King to break off the relationship because "an interracial marriage would provoke animosity from both blacks and whites, potentially damaging his chances of ever pastoring a church in the South." A friend of Kings stated that his feelings for this woman always lingered and that "he never recovered".  He graduated in 1951. 


In 1953, Dr. King married Coretta Scott on the lawn of her parents home in Alabama. They had 4 children together

In 1955, The Montgomery Bus Boycott, a civil-rights protest, African Americans refused to ride the city buses in Montgomery, AL to protest the seating segregation. In 1956, the protest proved successful when the Supreme Court decided that the segregation laws on buses were unconstitutional. 


Dr. King, as the chief spokesperson, was fundamental in the success of the Civil Rights Movement. It ended the segregation of African Americans in the South and other parts of the USA. As head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, King rose to national prominence. He promoted nonviolent tactics, such as the massive March on Washington. In 1964 Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize

Tragically, the life of this influential man was stolen by assassination in 1968.  President Ronald Reagan signed Martin Luther King Jr Day into law in 1983. 


Martin Luther King Jr Day is an American Federal Holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. The Holiday is observed on the third Monday of  January each year, falling close to Dr. King's birthday, January 15th.
