What Is Labor Day?


Labor Day was created in the late 19th century by the labor movement and became a federal holiday in 1894.

At the height of the Industrial Revolution, the average United States citizen was working 12 hour days and seven day weeks in order to survive. Children as young as 5 had to work in mills, factories, and mine, despite restrictions. The children earned merely a fraction of what the adults would earn. The workers, particularly the very poor, faced extremely dangerous work situations, with no access to fresh air, clean facilities, and breaks. Around this time, in the late 18th century, labor unions grew more prominent and vocal. The began organizing rallies and would help workers form strikes to protest the poor conditions and the awful hours and pay workers would receive. Unfortunately, many of these events turned violent, including the infamous Haymarket Riot of 1886, which cost several Chicago policemen their lives. On September 5th, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, holding the very first Labor Day parade in United States History.

Today, many of us celebrate with a day of relaxation. Parades, parties, BBQs and more. However you celebrate, thank you for your hard work and enjoy your labor day!

How To Load a Level Dumpster

HOW TO LOAD A LEVEL DUMPSTER

  (HINT: It's not like that!)

WHAT IS A LEVEL LOAD?

It's pretty self explanatory. It's a load-that's level. Meaning there is nothing that goes over the top of a bin. Example, don't place a 8 ft tall basketball goal standing up in the dumpster!

WHY IS A LEVEL LOAD IMPORTANT?
1. SAFETY. When you are driving down the highway behind a truck with a full dumpster on it you do not want things flying off hitting your car! It could cause damage to cars but more importantly, it could cause wrecks. 

Also, if anything flies out of the bin and onto the road, a car could run over the debris also causing wrecks.

2. LOW HANGING WIRES. If there are items over the top of a dumpster that has to drive under low hanging wires, it could cause damage and be dangerous. 


LAW REGARDING LEVEL DUMPSTERS
Public Safety Commission, Hopper, GA. 404-559-6613.

Securing Loads on Vehicles No vehicle shall be driven or moved on any public road unless such vehicle is constructed or loaded or covered so as to prevent any of its load from dropping, escaping, or shifting in such a manner as to create a safety hazard; however, this code section shall not prohibit the necessary spreading of any substance in public road maintenance or construction operations. No person shall operate, or load for operation, on any public road any vehicle with any load unless said load and any covering thereon is securely fastened so as to prevent said covering or load from becoming loose, detached or in any manner becoming a hazard to other users of the public road. Nothing in this code section nor any regulations based thereon, shall conflict with federal, or Georgia Public Service Commission, or Georgia Board of Public Safety regulations applying to the securing of loads on motor vehicles. The provisions of subsection (b) of this Code section and regulations based thereon shall not apply to vehicles carrying silage from field to storage and storage to feedlot or vehicles or equipment carrying unginned cotton. 40-6-254 Transport of unsecured load; penalty No person shall operate any motor vehicle with a load on or in such vehicle unless the load on or in such vehicle is adequately secured to prevent the dropping or shifting of such load onto the roadway in such a manner as to create a safety hazard.? Any person who operates a vehicle in violation of this Code section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

In short, it's against the law to travel with a dumpster that has no tarp.

OUR EQUIPMENT
Bin There Dump That provides tarps! All you have to do is keep your load level and we handle the rest!

Landfills and transfer stations will not allow a truck with an uncovered bin to dump at their facility. 

HOW DO WE ENSURE A LEVEL LOAD
When we come yp pick up our dumpster, we inspect the contents, make sure the doors are able to close and securely locked and make sure it is a level load. 

We look for anything above the rim of the bin. If possible, we adjust the debris to try and make it all fit without having to remove any items. 
If the bin is considered unsafe to travel with, we must leave the bin so it can be offloaded. 

HOW TO PREVENT GOING OVER THE RIM

Plan your load. Make sure you order the proper size dumpster. 

Use the double doors to help place the large, bulky items on the bottom. Small items last, Organize the load. Do not load over the rim!
