How To Dispose Of Your Old Christmas Tree



HOW TO DISPOSE OF YOUR OLD CHRISTMAS TREE

When the most wonderful time of the year comes to an end you're left with plenty to dispose of. Wrapping paper, packaging from endless toys and cardboard boxes. Most of this debris can be easily discarded. But what do you do with that old Christmas tree?



The "Keep Georgia Beautiful" foundation has an annual recycling program offered across various counties in the state. Their event "Bring One For The Chipper" is a great way to dispose of your Christmas tree. Since the program has started an estimated 5.9 million trees have been recycled. Mulch from these trees has been used for playground, local government beautification projects and individual yards. To learn more about this event click on your county below.


Another popular way to get rid of those old trees is to sink them in local lakes and ponds. Christmas trees make great habitats for many species of fish. As woody plant tissue starts to decompose a whole new series of vegetation occurs (phytoplankton and various algaes). Zooplankton (AKA waterfleas) populate on this new vegetation attracting small insects, snails, crayfish etc who in turn attract the larger species we cherish. As the saying goes, "Find the bait and you'll find the fish."


Recycling is always the best option when it comes to your old Christmas trees. Giving back to the Earth that so graciously provided you with a tree is only fair. 


Click HERE to learn why burning your Christmas tree is never a safe option!

As always, if you have more than just an old tree to dispose of make sure you give Bin There Dump That Dumpster Rentals a call!

Can I Place A Dumpster On The Street In Paulding County?

What is allowed?

Renting a dumpster for medium to large home clean-outs and other projects is an excellent idea. We are very flexible about where we set our dumpsters, however we still must comply with city, county and state laws. If the driveway is large enough we can almost always place a dumpster on private driveways, and parking areas. Some cities or counties will allow dumpsters to be placed on a curb or in city streets either with or without a permit, however, there are some that do not allow dumpsters to be placed anywhere besides private property.

What is not allowed?  

Paulding County does not allow dumpsters to be placed on any public property or right away without obtaining a dumpster placement permit first. This is to keep its citizens safe. When dumpsters are placed on streets they can become a hazard by creating blind spots.  Keeping dumpsters on private property also helps to prevent unlawful dumping. Although unlawful dumping may not seem like an issue to the city it can become an issue to the person who has rented the dumpster. When there are restricted items in the dumpster the renter could be charged additional fees and may be forced to dispose of the item(s) separately.

Where can I find more information?

If you would like more information on where you may and may not set a dumpster you can always call your local County Marshal, or your local Public Works Website or Office. You can also access any and all city codes and ordinances on the Municipal Codes website. The code regarding residential dumpsters is Sec134-288. - Temporary residential dumpsters.

10 Best Tips for a Safe Home Renovation


10 Best Tips for a Safe Home Renovation


kitchen-demolition-project


Virtually any home renovation project requires some degree of demolition. Installing a new floor? You’ll have to remove that raggedy old carpeting. Installing pristine new gray shaker cabinets? You’ll have to remove some dated lemon yellow kitchen cabinets from the dawn of time first.

Demolition isn’t as easy as you might think. Many homeowners can dismiss this stage of their remodeling project as simple enough to not require any planning, then end up incredibly frustrated and over budget. We want your renovation to turn out better than that; with a bit of planning and know-how, the demo stage doesn’t have to be a tear jerker.


1. Think of Demolition As Its Own Self-Contained Project


Demolition can be time-consuming and downright exhausting if you’re handling it yourself in large part. Isolating it as its own endeavor makes it easier to confront any obstacles it may present and deal with them more easily. Put your literal or figurative hard hat on, and focus on demolition first. Then you can approach your renovation with fresh eyes.

2.  Make Dedicated Time for Demo

In order to not feel overwhelmed, avoid injury, and get through your demolition project as quickly as possible we recommend giving it dedicated time. Plan out “This (weekend / day / 4 hour time slot) is committed to demo.” Make sure that you don’t have any serious activity planned out after your stints in demolition; it’s a surefire way to have to break plans out of exhaustion! Additionally, you increase your safety and avoid risk when you don’t rush to complete for the day in order to make it to other plans.

3.  Seal Off Areas That Will Not be Demolished

Take it from us, plaster, sawdust, and drywall dust will hunt down any and all available openings while you work. Shutting doors in the hopes that that will efficiently seal off your work space from the rest of your home is a fool’s errand. You will need to tape down sheet plastic with blue tape or even go as far as using a zip-wall dust barrier. You’ll thank us when you aren’t finding significant collections of dust throughout your home weeks later.

4.  Get an Accurate Picture of Your Layout

Before you get cracking away at tearing down, you need to have an excellent grasp of what exists behind your walls. A whole host of dangers could lurk there if you swing your sledgehammer unaware: electrical wire, gas lines, water pipes, even asbestos. Making a small exploratory hole after finding a stud lets you investigate carefully with a flashlight. Always assume the worst to avoid injury.

5.  Shut Off Your Power

We hope that it goes without saying, but it merits mentioning anyway: shut your power off before you commence demolition. If you absolutely need external light, use an extension cord from a separate area of the home and use a utility light. You can find a variety of cheap work lights online.

6.  Keep It Clean

Depending on the extent of your demolition, you’ll end up with a varying amount of waste. While you may be totally exhausted after a period of demo, limiting the debris after each session can dramatically improve the quality of the job and your peace of mind. Re-approaching the demo each new work session with a (relatively) clean work space can mean a world of difference.

7.  Use A Rental Dumpster

A demolition and remodel project of any sizable magnitude is going to have a tremendous amount of waste and debris. Renting or even purchasing a convenient rolloff dumpster is worth every cent. They can save you from countless voyages out to your local landfill and they can be very space economical.

8.  Use the Right Tools for the Job

Demolition is no different than any other aspect of a home remodel project: using the right tools saves you headache and reduces needless time waste. Make sure that you have the correct tools on hand: sledge hammer, large crowbar, a pry bar, and a claw hammer are the short list.

9.  Wear a Dust Mask

Tear down of walls, counter tops and tearing up floors can kick up a tremendous amount of dust. A throwaway dust mask minimizes health risks and allows you to work unimpeded. If hazards like asbestos or lead-based paint exist, you should consider a HEPA respirator instead. Safety first!

10.  Lace Those Boots

Wear your boots--we can’t emphasize it enough. Ignoring the more obvious dangers of nails or broken glass, even errant splinters sharp and strong enough to pierce thinner shoes could abound during your demo. You should also consider picking up a nice set of coveralls if you don’t have any clothes you can spare possibly sullying beyond recovery.

Common Concerns

Common Concerns for Dumpster Placement

Will my slopped driveway be an issue?


We often hear the statement: "My driveway is sloped. Is that going to be problem?".  The quick answer is most likely not; we have never had a driveway we could not put a rental dumpster on due to the incline or decline.  . The slope of the driveway needs to be parallel with the dumpster.  Perpendicular angles can cause the dumpster to lean and tip.  As long as the slope is about the same, there shouldn't be an issue.


 Placing a dumpster on a driveway that is sloped with a flat spot can propose a bigger issue than it being placed on the slope.  When there is a change in the slope the hook on the truck will not line up properly with the dumpster.

Although, the picture does not do any justice, this driveway was very steep but had enough room at the top to place it without any issues.

Can the dumpster be set on my slanted driveway?



How Do I Get A Dumpster?

National Flag Day

National Flag Day

How did this day come to be?

June 14th is National Flag day. This day commemorates the day we adopted the flag we know and love today with 13 red and white stripes, and 50 stars set in a sea of blue. This day is believed to have been the idea of  a school teacher that had her students celebrate “Flag Birthday” on June 14th, 1885 to celebrate the flags 108th birthday. However, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an act of congress designating June 14th and National Flag Day. To learn more about Flag Day, click HERE.

Our flags meaning.

Our flag is not only a symbol for our country, but its very design contains memories from our past. Our flag has 7 red stripes and 6 white stripes that represent the 13 original colonies, and 50 white stars representing the 50 states the the Union.

Even the colors of the Flag are symbolic to what or Country and Flag stand for; the color red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue symbolizes justice, perseverance, and vigilance. When combined these aspects have become an international symbol of freedom and justice. To learn more about the colors of our Flag, click HERE.

Why have we started this?

At Bin There Dump That Dumpster Rentals of Atlanta we have noticed an unsettling amount of American flags being improperly disposed of. As a Veteran owned business we find this to be particularly upsetting and have decided to do something about it!  In honor of National Flag Day, Bin There Dump That has decided to help prevent our country's flag from entering landfills by partnering with The American Legion to properly retire our honorable flag. We are asking all of our customers to set their old flags in an easily accessible location for our Delivery Experts to grab. We will then ensure the old flags are respectfully retired. Per the US Flag Code, Title 4, Section 8(K): “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”

Thank You.

The Bin There Dump That team we salutes our men and women in the armed forces and veterans. We understand the sacrifices you have made for our Country and want to honor you by properly caring for the flag you have fought to defend. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Give us a call at (404)-692-2838 or email us at ATL@BinThereDumpThat.com today to start your dumpster rental. You can also submit a order online at www.atlantadumpsterrentals.net or www.mariettadumpsterrental.net We are eagerly waiting to serve you!

Can I Put A Dumpster On The Street In Peachtree City?



How to legally place a dumpster on public property or Street in Peachtree City.

What are the laws? 

Rental dumpsters may be placed on the cart path, or public property if the citizen renting the dumpster obtains an encroachment permit from the city of Peachtree prior to renting. Dumpsters may not be placed on city streets, however they may be placed on cart paths, right-of-ways, and occasionally sidewalks with a permit. Dumpsters (or any obstruction) may NOT be left over night without prior permission from the Peachtree City Code Enforcement Department. Ordinance code 70-3 is most commonly used for residents and addresses rental dumpsters and various obstructions placed in Rights-of-way, sidewalks, and carts; especially obstructions left over night. Contractors and Roofers should see ordinance code 18-10 for details about what would be considered an unsafe work site in regards to disposal of debris and rental dumpsters. For full ordinance code can be found on the Municipal Code Website.

The Code Enforcement Department of Peachtree city can be contacted through Email at codeenforcement@peachtree-city.org or by phone at (770)-487-5731. 

What is an Encroachment permit?

An Encroachment permit is a legal document obtained from the city that allows one to temporarily utilizes public space under the guidance of the permit. This permit helps keep the city looking nice by assigning the holder responsible for repairing and paying for any damages done to city property by the rental dumpster or various equipment.

How do I obtain a permit?

Peachtree City has two different Encroachment permits, the first is used for Right-Of-Ways and sidewalks, the second is used for Cart Paths.  Both of these permits (as well as others) can be found on the Peachtree City home website under Engineering. These forms and permits are free and can, usually, be obtained on a same-day basis.  

Will my Dumpster damage public property?

How To Dispose Of Paint In Less Than 5 Steps!


How To Dispose Of Paint In Less Than 5 Steps!

We are no different, everybody loves the look of a freshly painted house.  However, a common question that is asked when someone is renting a dumpster is, “May I put my wet paint, or paint cans in the bin as well?”  The answer to that question is yes and no. If the paint is 100% dry it can be put directly into the dumpster.  Wet paint has to be dried out and if you do not love watching paint dry, we have some tips to help speed up the process. Our tips are fairly easy and there is couple of ways of doing it.


Recommended Disposal Method 

The most common way is to simply mix the wet paint with cement and let it dry (this tip is for disposing of 1 gallon of paint, recipe can me adjusted to handle as much as needed). To do this you will need a plastic 5 gal. bucket with a lid, bagged cement, and a sturdy stir stick. Start by pouring the wet paint into the plastic bucket, then add the dry cement mix to the bucket. Use the sturdy stick to thoroughly mix the paint and cement mixture to a thick milkshake texture. Once you have made finished mixing set the bucket of cement paint and the empty paint can out to dry. It is that simple!

Sand, kitty litter, or saw dust can be used in lieu of cement.  The only down fall to using those materials is that is will take much longer to cure!

Most Cost Effective Way To Dispose Of Paint 

Another way is to simply let it dry out.  This will be difficult to do if it is left in the can, but you can spread it out on a cardboard box, plywood, or even a section of old carpet, increasing the surface area of the paint will make it dry faster. So, whip out the can opener and paint brushes to spend a few minutes painting the items you are disposing of anyway. 


Most Environmentally Friendly Disposal

The best and most environmentally friendly way is to recycle it.  The down fall is it can get a little pricey and may be hard to find locations that will accept wet paint.  You can call your local transfer station, county landfill, or sanitation department to see if they offer paint recycling or disposal.

If you are feeling philanthropic there are some charities that will accept paint for their use, some of these organizations would be Boy Scouts; they tend to run on a limited budget therefore most troops may take your paint. Some other options would be Habitat for Humanity, which takes in reusable construction and painting materials to build houses for those in need and Global Paint for Charity (located here in Atlanta), this program takes in leftover paint for volunteers to use on houses of the elderly, veterans, and widows so that they may keep their properties looking nice without out having to pay painter fees; they also ship the paint over seas and to cities in United States.

If you rent a dumpster from us, Bin There Dump That Dumpster Rentals of Atlanta,  you are allowed to dispose of paint using the cement or drying method.  We can reached at 404-692-2838, atl@bintheredumpthat.com, or online www.AtlantaDumpsterRentals.net.
