Yard Leaf Clean-Up
Yard leaf and pine needle clean-up, especially in the fall and winter, can be a tedious process. Therefore, to make yard maintenance an easier process, clear up the dead leaves regularly, so you are not bogged down with hours of clean-up in one day. Follow this simple rule: when you look out into your yard and see more than half of it covered with leaves, don’t wait any longer. Clean it up immediately to avoid hours of raking in the future.
So, what are the most efficient ways to rid your yard of dead leaves?
Use your mower with a bag attached to collect all the leaves in a quick and effective fashion, saving you loads of time.
Another excellent tool to use is a leaf blower, especially if you do not have a lawn mower of your own. Use it to direct the leaves around and gather them in neat piles that are easier to clean up in one go. They can then be transferred to the dumpster bin for disposal. Out of sight, out of mind!
Finally, and if you are up for a workout, use your trusted rake and clear your yard manually.
Keep in mind that a thorough clean-up of your yard is only completed when it is not strewn with crunchy leaves.
Green Waste Disposal
Green waste clean-up consists of all organic matter that is found in your yard and produced from gardening or landscaping activities. These include:
- Mowed grass
- Trimmed bushes or hedges
- Twigs, branches and other parts of the trees
- Mud and soil
- Flowers, plants and leaves
Most homeowners are of the opinion that they do not need a dumpster bin for their yard clean-up or landscaping projects as these may be too large for their disposal needs. However, dumpster rental businesses such as Bargain Bins provide a wide range of dumpster sizes to fit any project. Bargain Bins offers dumpster bins in the sizes 3 yards, 12 yards, 15 yards and 20 yards. Thus, according to your clean-up project, residential or commercial, choose the size that suits your needs. If you need more information before making a decision, you can consult the experts at Bargain Bins who can help understand your needs and recommend the right dumpster bin for your project.
Clearing Your Yard of Debris
After a thorough yard clean-up, there are several methods to clear your premises of the debris produced. Read on to find out more:
Haul It To The Landfill
Municipalities and private composting businesses encourage citizens to drop off their yard debris for proper disposal and recycling. However, this can be a cumbersome process as you will be spending time, effort and resources especially if you do not have your own pick-up, trailer, or vehicle large enough to hold the yard debris.
Schedule a Pick-Up
For larger landscaping activities such as tree-cutting, it may be useful to have a dumpster bin at your premises that can collect the waste. This is also useful as you are not responsible to haul the debris to the landfill as it will be carried away for you by the dumpster bin rental company.
In addition to the one-time pick-up service, there is also the option to schedule regular pick-ups, especially if you have a scheduled yard clean-up every few months. In this regard, Bargain Bins can place a dumpster bin of the size of your choice and pick it up a week later giving you time to fill it over several days. Bargain Bins will then haul the yard debris away for disposal, saving you a lot of time and gas. Even more, you won’t have to dirty up your vehicle!
Burning The Yard Waste
In areas that may not have access to dumpster bin rental companies or composting facilities, home and business owners have the option to burn the yard waste, especially wood, sticks and twigs that are used extensively as firewood. However, it is important to be familiar with local laws before going down this road. This may not be allowed in your area of Colorado Springs, particularly when the fire danger is high.
Benefits of Using a Dumpster Bin for Yard Clean-Up
One of the foremost advantages of renting a dumpster bin for your landscaping or yard clean-up project is that you do not have to separate the waste before disposal. All your landscaping debris can be tossed into a rental dumpster bin. Bargain Bins provides you with this list of yard debris that can be stored for disposal in its bins:
- Patio or deck furniture
- Grill (excluding the gas tank)
However, according to local laws and regulations, the only materials that must not be disposed of in the dumpster are hazardous or dangerous substances such as batteries, chemicals, paint, electronics and the like. The disposal of these materials must be carried out as per the regulations of the state or county you reside in.
Another benefit of using a dumpster bin for your yard clean-up is that you do not have to break down or bag any of the debris such as branches, twigs or shrubs. But with a dumpster bin, there are no hassles – just toss them in and you are good to go!
When you have a dumpster bin at your premises, you do not have to worry about clutter or debris strewn across your yard. All your trash is stored away, giving you a cleaner, more orderly space to work in. And what’s more – this also avoids accidents such as tripping or falling, allowing you to execute your project in a safer and more efficient manner.
Clean Out Other Clutter
In the process of a yard clean-up, you will be tempted to throw out broken, unwanted patio or outdoor furniture. Thankfully, if you have a dumpster bin at your premises, you can dispose of these bulky items conveniently.
Complete Your Clean-Up at Your Own Pace
When you rent a dumpster bin from Bargain Bins, it will be at your premises for a week. This gives you the peace of mind and flexibility to complete your yard clean-up at your own pace, without having to hurry.
