Easter

WHAT IS EASTER?
Easter is a holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the Christian religion. According to the New Testament of the Bible, the event occurred three days after Jesus was crucified by the Romans and died in or around 30 A.D. The holiday concludes "The Passion of The Christ", a series of events and holidays that begin with lent. Lent is a 40-day period of fasting, sacrifice and prayer. The 40 day period ends with Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Although this holiday is of high religious significance in the Christian faith, several traditions associated with Easter date back to pagan times. 

WHEN IS EASTER?
Easter 2019 is April 21. However, every year the holiday falls on a different day.  Easter Sunday is a holiday, among others, that is considered a "movable feast". Easter always falls on a Sunday between March 22nd and April 25th.


GOOD FRIDAY
The resurrection of Jesus is essentially the foundation of the Christian religion. According to the New Testament, Jesus was arrested by the Romans because he claimed to be the "Son of God". The arrest was motivated by Romans viewing Jesus as a threat to their empire. Jesus was sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate. This day is recognized as "Good Friday" as His resurrection three days later proved that He was the Son of God.


PASSOVER
Passover is a Jewish holiday, often associated with Easter. Their connection is seen in The Last Supper, which occurred the night before Jesus was arrested and persecuted. The Last Supper was essentially a feat. The New Testament identifies the bread as Hid body and the wine as Hid blood. These rituals would one day symbolize the sacrifice that the Son of God was about to make in His death, becoming the basic ritual for the Holy Communion.

EASTER EGGS
 Egg decorating may have become a tradition on the celebration of Easter in a nod to the religious significance of Easter, Jesus' resurrection or "re-birth".


EASTER BUNNY
The exact origins of the Easter Bunny are unknown, however, some believe it arrived in America with immigrants from Germany in the 1700s. Rabbits are, in many cultures, known as enthusiastic pro creators, so the arrival of baby bunnies in springtime became associated with birth and renewal, another link to the resurrection of Jesus. 

EASTER DINNER
The historical Easter dinner-LAMB. Lamb was often used as a sacrifice animal in Jewish traditions and it frequently served during Passover. The phrase "Lamb of God" is used to refer to Jesus and the sacrificial nature of his death.

China bans imports, what now?


CHINA BANS IMPORTS

Materials such as plastics, paper, and glass are usually set aside for recycling and shipped to overseas dumping grounds. However, last year China put a ban on the import of the items intended for reuse. So as citizens continue to sort their trash, what happens to the recyclable materials?

Since China has placed the ban last year, most of the materials that would usually go to those dumping grounds have been transported to Chester City, PA, where they use a Covanta incinerator to burn the materials. This new situation presents the risk of an increase of toxic pollution. Concerns for the health of the citizens of Chester City are growing, as experts say that burning plastic will create a new fog of dioxins that will worsen what is already an alarming health situation. Nearly 4 out of 10 children in Chester have asthma. The risk for ovarian cancer in Chester is 64% higher than the rest of the state and lung cancer risks are 24% higher. 

The debris is being shipped to Chester City from as far as New York City and North Carolina. The burning of this trash releases nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxides, and particulate matter (tiny fragments of debris that when inhaled can cause an array of problems).

“There are higher than normal rates of heart disease, stroke, and asthma in Chester, which are all endpoints for poor air,” said Marilyn Howarth, a public health expert at the University of Pennsylvania.  She states that as it is difficult to link any single case of cancer, heart disease, or asthma directly to a source, the emissions from Covanta contain known carcinogens so they absolutely increase the risk of cancer. 

Covanta says that pollution controls, such as scrubbers in smokestacks, will prevent the toxins from being emitted. They also argue that burning the materials is a better option than simply letting in pile up in landfills.

The Environmental Protection Agency is trying to come out with solutions to the dilemma. It's proving to be difficult as our country generates more than 250 million tons of waste a year, until recently China would take about 40% of that.


Since the ban has been issued from China, they haven't accepted 2 dozen different recycling materials, such as plastic, and mixed papers-unless they meet strict rules around contamination. The imported recycling has to be clean and unmixed-a standard that is too difficult for most cities in the US. 


We can all agree that the entire recycling system in the US will need to be overhauled to avoid environmental damage.

SPRING CLEANING

WHAT IS IT?
spring clean·ing

Dictionary result for spring cleaning

/spriNG ˈklēniNG/
noun
BRITISH
  1. 1.
    a thorough cleaning of a house or room, typically undertaken in spring.
verb

Spring has been linked to renewal and rebirth for a long time. The changing of weather, from cold and dreadful to bright and sunny presents many opportunities to start fresh. What better place to begin than at home?

While some people may dread the task of giving their house a good scrub down, there are a few health benefits to busting out the broom!

WHY SHOULD YOU DO IT?

1. Cleaning helps you breathe better.
It may not just be the pollen that comes with Spring that is responsible for your seasonal allergies. Dust and pet dander are big disruptors for people who are prone to allergies. Clutters home tend to gather a lot of these in the cold months of winter. Say goodbye to clutter and say hello to feeling better!

2. Cleaning reduces stress.
The old saying you've probably heard a hundred times, "A cluttered home means a cluttered mind." It's an old belief that our outer environment is often a reflection of our inner, mental state. This being the case, a clean home should enable to you relax and think more clearly! Studies have shown that doing housework for as little as 20 minutes can reduce your stress by up to 20%! 

3. Cleaning is a workout.
The more you clean your home the more exercise you are getting! On average 30 minutes of vacuuming can burn up to 111 calories! If you are feeling sluggish, 20 minutes of low intensity exercise (such as cleaning the house) three times a week can increase your overall energy levels and reduce your fatigue! (by up to 65%!)

4. A clean bedroom equals a good nights sleep.
Your momma knew what she was talking about when she asked you to make your bed every morning. A bedroom poll conducted by The National Sleep Foundation found that 75% of those polled sleep better on a clean sheet with a fresh scent. If you're having trouble catching Zzzz's, try tidying up your room and throwing those sheets in the wash!

As always, remember to use Bin There Dump That for all your dumpster needs!

Saint Patrick's Day!


SAINT PATRICK'S DAY

Saint Patrick's Day is a religious/cultural celebration held on March 17 every year, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick. He is known as the patron Saint of Ireland.

This day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century. The holiday is observed by the Catholic church, Anglican Communion (Especially the Church of Ireland), Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. This day celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish and commemorates Saint Patrick. The day is usually celebrated with parties and parades, the color green and shamrocks. Christians who attend the church service and follow the Lenten restrictions have the ban of certain foods and alcohol lifted for the day. 

Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated in the Republic or Ireland and Northern Ireland. The holiday has stretched all the way around the world, too! The Saint is celebrated in the United Kingdom, Canada, USA, Brazil, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand! it is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival! 

Who was Saint Patrick?

Patrick was a 5th century Roman-British Christian Bishop & missionary in Ireland. Most of what is known about the Saint comes from the Declaration, which was written by Patrick himself. He was born in the 4th century into a wealthy family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather a priest. According to his writings, he was kidnapped at age 16 and made to be a slave in Gaelic Ireland. He said that he spent 6 years as a slave until he escaped, as a direction from God, fleeing to the coast where a ship was waiting to take him home. After returning home, Patrick announced during his captivity he had found God, and he then became a priest. 

HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY!

As always, go GREEN when it comes to your dumpster needs!

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. 


Help keep our world clean!

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!
