Reasons to rent a roll off dumpster over the green bag
There are many reasons to rent a roll off dumpster over a green bag. Safety is the first consideration. The sides of the roll off bin are sturdier and higher than the floppy sides of a green bag even if the green bag is manufactured from a strong woven material.
Financially you spend more with a green bag. First, you must buy the bag, then you must arrange for pick-up at an additional fee. With a roll off dumpster from Bargain Bins, the flat fee includes rental, delivery and pick-up. The delivery and pick-up date for the roll off dumpster is at your convenience.
A green bag must be left 12 feet off the curb. A roll off dumpster can stand on your driveway or anywhere else on the property that is convenient. Because the roll off dumpster is closer to your home, the distance you must carry the discarded material is shorter. With a green bag, you must walk back and forth, all the way to the curb. If you have a large property, this can be very inconvenient.
When considering green bag vs dumpster, you must also factor in their pick-up. For a green bag to be collected, at least 18 feet of vertical clearance is needed for the truck and crane. A Bargain Bins roll off dumpster has driveway-friendly wheels that make pulling it onto the pick-up truck quick and safe.
Why would you want to leave a dumpster bag close to the curb of your property for a long time? It looks unattractive when the discarded materials bulge out at the sides. A roll off dumpster with its sturdy sides looks neat and can be kept much closer to your home.
If the green bag must be left 12 feet off the curb, it might be on your lawn. When left standing there for a prolonged period, the green bag will damage your grass. Bargain Bins roll off dumpsters have driveway-friendly rubber wheels and can stand for the whole seven-day rental period without damaging your driveway.
