Waste Removal for General Contractors

dumpster bin

General contractors are responsible for managing and building a project designed by someone else. They oversee important renovation and building projects; she or he manages and hires subcontractors and other labor in construction projects. The GC acts as the supervisor of the entire project. It’s a lot of work- if you’re a general contractor, you’re in luck because Mr. Waste has you covered on the waste removal part of the project. Follow our general contractor’s guide to waste removal to make your job easier!

Packing Your Bin

There are various types of materials you may need to throw out when carrying out a contracting project, this is why a mixed waste bin is a suitable option although clean fill bins may also be used. These bins are sturdy, and can carry a lot, but there are limits, you want to avoid putting too many heavy materials inside your dumpster rental. A bin can be loaded to the top rail, although there needs to be enough space to cover the bin with a tarp upon removal. Despite being built to handle very heavy loads, an overload of items is feasible. 

Hazardous Materials

You want to check and double check to make sure no hazardous materials are being thrown into your bin. Here is a list of items that are not accepted in Mr. Waste dumpster bins:

  • propane tanks
  • ammunition
  • leftover paint, paint cans and paint thinner, stains and varnish
  • household cleaning products
  • batteries
  • fluorescent light bulbs
  • tires, motor oil, gasoline and antifreeze
  • aerosol cans
  • pesticides and fertilizers
  • pharmaceuticals and bio-medical waste

Common materials that are accepted in dumpster rental bins are:


  • concrete blocks
  • wood
  • roofing shingles
  • plastic
  • metal
  • drywall
  • asphalt
  • brick
  • stone
  • ceramic

As well as:

other construction and building materials and demolition materials

  • other non-hazardous materials of any kind

Bin Sizes

Most contracting projects are larger, and deal with the disposal of heavier materials. It’s probably a good idea to look at the larger bins we offer. The 30 or 40 yard bins are our largest, and may be ideal. They are commonly used for large demolitions, large construction sites, large home cleanups and remodelling.

When renting a Mr. Waste bin, waste removal is one less thing to worry about when running a construction project. We make things clear and concise. We’ll carefully drop the bin off onto your driveway, placing wooden planks under the bin to avoid damage to your driveway and when you’re done using it, we’ll take it off your hands.

When is the best time to renovate?

At Mr. Waste, customer satisfaction is important to us. That’s why we’d like to suggest something that may not follow popular opinions, but surprisingly works in the world of construction, renovation and managing it all.

The popular belief is that the best time to tackle a home renovation project would be during the spring or summer, but this isn’t always the case. Depending on exactly what kind of renovation you’re planning to do, doing it during the winter can be far more beneficial for you than any other time of year.

Like any other business, prices for construction rise as the demand for work rises. Prices for demolition, junk removal, bin rental, and other parts of construction tend to go up in the summer when there are a lot of people who want those services rather than during the winter when there isn’t as much of a demand on the Southern Ontarian market. 

This is specifically because most people think that the spring and summer are the best or only time to renovate although, winter renovation can come with huge savings. Here are only a few of the reasons winter is a great time to do home renovation:

  • Timelines are more likely to be met. Because there are fewer jobs to be done, construction companies will have no excuses for not being on schedule with their work.
  • Major appliances are often on sale. Take advantage of holiday sales to upgrade your appliances at a price.
  • Contractors will negotiate in the winter. In the winter, construction companies are much more likely to give you a deal due to a decrease in demand for work.
  • Manufacture materials will be cheaper. Just as prices go down for the labour that goes into construction in the winter, prices will go down on the materials too due to decreased demand.

If you need any demolition or junk removal or bin rental services, contact us at Mr. Waste Inc. today. We work with all types of waste removal projects including residential, contracting, and industrial and provide a dependable rental service for all types of dumpsters and bins, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you need more information about how we can help you with your renovation project.


Whether you are an office complex, hotel, store, restaurant, or institutional building, you know that you generate your fair share of waste every day. If you are looking for more economically efficient and eco-friendly ways to reduce and manage waste, then you need a waste reduction/prevention program in place for your commercial business.

If you’re a business in Burlington, Milton, Oakville, or Mississauga, the task of reducing waste and keeping your commercial property clean is easy when you team up with Mr. Waste.

Developing a Waste Program for Your Business
There are many beneficial reasons for establishing an efficient waste disposal plan for your business including; clean recycling, eliminating health hazards, and saving money.

When developing your waste management plan, here is what your business needs to consider:

1. Recycling: A recycling program helps your business reduce waste and remove excess materials from the property all at once. You can purchase a recycling bin(s) from a disposal service so that you can dispose of everything from plastics to office paper to boxboards. Recycling will dramatically reduce the amounts of general waste your property disposes of on a daily basis.

2. Establish a Waste Prevention Program: When you find your business is producing excess waste and it’s becoming a headache, then it is time to develop a waste prevention program. Your program requires three components to be effective: reduce, reuse, donate. Identify what products your company can reuse in some way, and reduce waste generated by changing how you manufacture, produce, or even package your company’s products. Implement recycling rules that are mandatory for all staff to ensure this program is successful.

3. Get a Dumpster: One of the best ways to manage waste is to have Mr. Waste deliver a commercial rental dumpster bin, and pick it up once it’s full. You can rent everything from heavy-duty to front-load dumpsters, from 6 yards to 18 yards long, to position at your facility and schedule private pickups at your convenience.

  • Tracking waste for your company helps you monitor the progress of your waste disposal program, and identifies where your waste management could continue to improve.
