Perhaps the easiest and most efficient way to ensure your site remains clean, and the waste is disposed of responsibly is renting a mixed waste dumpster bin or a clear fill bin. 

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:

  • Topsoil
  • Dirt
  • Brick
  • Gravel
  • Rubble
  • Sand
  • Cement
  • Concrete

Waste disposal companies typically charge lower fees for unmixed materials.

Mixed-Waste Bins

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:

  • Plastics
  • Glass
  • Metals
  • Cardboard
  • Contaminated soil
  • Fibreglass
  • 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.

Recycling Scrap Metal: Determining What’s Salvageable

What Is Scrap Metal Recycling?

Scrap metal recycling plays a critical role in protecting the environmental health of our community. It is a process that involves the recovery and processing of scrap metal from end-of-life products or structures, as well as from manufacturing scrap, so that it can be introduced as a raw material in the production of new goods, while offering a much lower carbon footprint and more efficient utilization of resources than new material.

By recycling your metal, you’re doing the following:

Protecting Landfills

Metal slows down the process by which other materials are broken down.

Reducing Your Dependence on Mining:

Metal recycling lowers the demand for mining, which helps protect the land from damaging environmental impacts.

Commonly-Recycled Metals

Many metals used in consumer products today can be recycled to create new products. A metal is considered desirable for recycling when it can be melted and re-formed without losing considerable strength and durability. Some of the most commonly-recycled metals today are aluminum, steel, copper, nickel, platinum, gallium, gold, and silver. The most frequently-recycled metal items include beverage cans, metal food containers, electronics, automobile components, and appliances.

Recycling Metal – The Process

Each scrap metal yard has its own process, but most work in this general order:

When metal is collected for recycling, it must be sorted by type before processing can begin. In some cases, larger pieces are cut into smaller components for ease of processing. They are also inspected for any radiation.

The metal is then cleaned and exposed to high temperatures in a furnace to create a molten metal solution, which is then tested for purity. Additional metals or gases can be added to change the purity of the metal solution or create alloys for manufacturing purposes. 

After purification, the metal is transported to cooling chambers to solidify for transport.

The molten metal is then poured out of the furnace. Metal may be formed into ingots, rods, billets, or slabs, depending upon its intended purpose. Alternatively, metals may be pulverized into a powder or transported in liquid form to a manufacturing facility, where they are used to create new components and products.

Recycled Metal In Daily Life

Recycled metal is very apparent in everyday life. It is very rare that you utilize metal that has not been recycled. Here are a few things we use that are composed of recycled metals: 


  • Automobiles
  • Aircraft
  • Appliances
  • Ductwork
  • Food packaging 
  • Roofing
  • Aluminum Foil

Metal recycling is an essential element of products we use everyday and is critical to protecting the environment.

Hoarding and Beginning the Clean-up Process

Imagine throwing away your most prized or valuable possession. This is the type of anxiety that a hoarder goes through on a daily basis, even when it comes to old or meaningless items and things others may view as junk. By definition, hoarding is the  compulsion to continually accumulate a variety of items that are often considered useless or worthless by others accompanied by an inability to discard the items without great distress. Hoarding can create unsanitary living conditions, not to mention the emotional strain on friends and family. Read on to learn more about the facts of hoarding and the clean-up process, including the benefits of a dumpster rental in Burlington, Mississauga, Oakville and Milton.

Dangers of Hoarding

Hoarding can be very dangerous to your health, mental state, and your home. Hoarding dangers can include: mold growth, bug infestations, structural damage, and tripping hazards. Hoarding has been known to also overwhelm the mind, cause stress, anxiety, and drain energy levels. Even minor hoarding problems can result in a diminished quality of life. A lack of functional living space is common among hoarders, who may also live in unhealthy or dangerous conditions due to improper waste disposal. Hoarders also cope with malfunctioning appliances and systems rather than allow qualified individuals into their home to fix a problem, which means they often live without heat or other necessary comforts. Social isolation, financial difficulties, and family or marital discord are also common among hoarders.

Symptoms and Behaviors

  • Inability to throw away possessions
  • Severe anxiety when attempting to discard items
  • Great difficulty categorizing or organizing possessions
  • Indecision about what to keep or where to put things
  • Distress, such as feeling overwhelmed or embarrassed by possessions
  • Suspicion of other people touching items
  • Obsessive thoughts and actions: fear of running out of an item or of needing it in the future; checking the trash for accidentally discarded objects
  • Functional impairments, including loss of living space, social isolation, family or marital discord, financial difficulties, health hazards

The Clean-Up Process

If you identify a friend or relative who may have a hoarding problem, a good idea is to act quickly to address the problem and help improve that persons’ quality of life. If your friend or relative accepts your help, rent a dumpster bin and begin the process of going through the junk. Respect your loved one’s wishes and don’t throw anything away without his permission. You will probably experience some pushback, so make sure you can extend your dumpster rental if necessary.

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.
