Bring on the green

Bring on the green!
                You don’t have to have a pot of gold to rent a dumpster or find a leprechaun to see the green. Our distinctive green bins are residential friendly with different sizes to fit your projects need. Spring is the time to get things done, whether it’s planning a move, yard cleanup, or just cleaning out the clutter in your home.
                For a lot of people tackling a cleanout project can be a stressful undertaking. But it is doesn’t have to be, just use these easy guidelines to help you get started on your clean out project.

If it isn’t used toss it- I seem to collect recipe magazines but then never use them since it’s much easier to lookup recipes online. Toss out those magazines, newspapers, junk mail, or other papers that have been sitting in piles forever. Clean out your junk and makeup drawers, often there is expired makeup and odds and ends that get tossed in those drawers. Get rid of small appliances that aren’t used and furniture that has become tattered. Spice cabinets and food pantries can become over crowded with expired spices and food. If you come across a pantry item that you just don’t use or like that is still good make a trip to your local food bank.

Get out your dusting gear- Start from the top and work your way down, a telescoping duster or long vacuum hose can become your best friend for reaching dust and cobwebs on the walls and baseboards. Use a sticky roller for a quick cleanup of lampshades and furniture. Wash curtains if the fabric allows or toss them in the drawer on air fluff for a few minutes. The kitchen can be super tricky to clean since grease tends to collect in unnoticed areas. Grab some dryer towels and use them wipe the top of cupboards, fans, hood vents or other areas where grease and dirt collect. The dryer towels will remove the grease easily followed by a multi-surface cleaner and your surfaces will sparkle!

These simple tips can help cleaning up a breeze, if you need a bin to help haul off your junk please give us call at Bin There Dump That Ogden and we would be happy to assist you in finding the bin right for your projects needs.

Spring Clean Up

Spring Clean Up!

When the weather warms up we find ourselves wanting to start on all the projects we put off during the chilly winter months. Decluttering your house is a wonderful way to start your spring to do lists. I always like to have a plan before starting a project, so my time is spent wisely. One of my weak areas is getting rid of stuff. I find it takes the most time and I keep stuff that just ends up staying tucked away until I next year when I start decluttering all over again. That’s why it’s important to have a set of guidelines to help get rid of stuff easily.
Here is the list I use during my cleanup process:
Why did I get it? Do I even use this item anymore, does it serve a purpose other than collecting dust?
Will I ever use it again? This one can be tricky because here is where I will start wasting time going through stuff and imaging the ways I can use. But chances are if it has sat around for a year without me using it or even thinking about it then it is really time for it to go.
Is it in good working shape? We’ve all done it, a lamp or radio gets broken, so we set aside to be repaired. Time passes, and the dust collects and there it sits. If this is the case, then it is probably wise to just throw it out.

Now that you’ve gone through the list and have a huge pile of items to get rid of it’s time to call Bin There Dump That Ogden to assist with the removal. We have bins of numerous sizes to help with any size job. The smaller bins are good for clearing out the odds and ends we collect. Our bigger bins are ideal for hauling away appliances, furniture and any large bulky item. Give us a call and we’d be happy to help you decide on the bin that’s perfect for you.
