Clean Fill Bins Vs. Mixed Waste Bins
Clean Fill Bins
Clean fill refers to construction waste materials that can be reused or recycled in other construction projects. The term “clean” implies that the material is eco-friendly and free of any toxic substances that may adversely affect the health of humans and animals, or contaminate the environment where they’re disposed of.
Clean fill also:
- Has not been mixed with any waste
- Has not been subject to any known spill of petroleum products or release of chemical contaminants, including reactive, radioactive, combustible, corrosive, and zoo toxic materials
- Has not been treated to remediate any contamination
Construction materials accepted for clean fill disposal include:
Waste disposal companies typically charge lower fees for unmixed materials.
Non-clean fill refers to construction and demolition waste that is insoluble in water and of a nonhazardous nature, but cannot be used or recycled in subsequent construction projects. Non-clean fill materials may include:
- Contaminated soil
- Hazardous household waste – appliances, electronics, etc
Choosing a Size for a Landscaping Project
An important aspect of choosing a dumpster is to remember that you can’t fill it to the point where material is overflowing. Dumpsters can only be filled to the point where the material is filled to the top of the dumpster walls. Usually, a tarp is put over top of the bin in order to transport it so it’s important to avoid overfilling. This is why it’s important to get the right size for your project. There are many sizes available that range from 6 yards to 40 yards. A 6 yard dumpster can hold 6 cubic yards of material, and likewise, a 40 yard one can hold 40 cubic yards. For a larger landscaping project, we recommend a dumpster size of 20 or 30 depending on how large and what you’re planning on putting into the dumpster.
Transporting Your Rental Dumpster Bin
If you schedule a rental dumpster bin, you won’t have to worry about transporting it either. In fact, it is actually delivered by a truck that is specially designed to carry it. It’s outfitted with hydraulic equipment that can easily lift and lower the dumpster, even when it’s filled with thousands of pounds of debris. You also won’t need to worry about your driveway enduring any damage, our professionals are mindful and cautious.
