Talking About Welding Equipment and Techniques

Hi there. I’m Nina. Welcome to my website about welding. The process of welding together metal takes a lot more than a hot iron and some metal wire. There are many different machines and practices people use to carefully and skillfully weld together metal. With the right techniques, you can create truly beautiful welds that hold up to the test of time. The strong metal welds are often stronger than the two metal pieces they join together. I would like to use this site to talk about the different types of welding equipment, techniques and safety gear used for this exciting industry. Thanks for visiting.

5 Tips for Renting a Dumpster for a Neighborhood Cleanup

by Matias Keranen

If you are arranging a neighborhood cleanup, one of the items you will need to arrange is adequate dumpster rentals. While renting is relatively simple, there are several things that you should keep in mind when planning your dumpster rental. Following these tips will help ensure that everyone feels included in your neighborhood cleanup and that you have adequate dumpsters for your entire project. 

Have a Single Contact Person in Charge of Dumpster Rental 

As soon as you know that you will need a dumpster rental for your neighborhood cleanup, you should designate a single individual to contact dumpster rental companies. This way the individual will be able to compare quotes efficiently and will be able to arrange the drop-off and pick-up of the dumpster. On the day of the cleanup, you should make sure that the person in charge of the dumpster rental is near the dumpster at all times. They should be able to help inform people of how to properly load the dumpster and which dumpster specific items belong in. 

Consider a Walk-In Dumpster 

If you are renting a large dumpster for your cleanup, you should consider a walk-in dumpster. Walk-in dumpsters may be accessible to more people in your community. Young children, people with physical disabilities, and the elderly may not be able to loft garbage bags into a standard dumpster. However, they might be able to walk into a walk-in dumpster and place their trash. If you cannot get a walk-in dumpster, consider assigning a few strong "throwers" to stay near the dumpster and help people lift their trash bags into the dumpsters. 

Additionally, walk-in dumpsters make the amount of trash you have collected more easily visible to community members. As community members see the dumpster fill up they may feel a sense of pride in their efforts.

Be Generous In Your Space Estimate 

It is easy to underestimate the amount of trash you have in your neighborhood. You should keep in mind that you are only allowed to fill dumpsters to the fill line. If you have too much trash, you may have to order a second pick-up or an emergency dumpster. To prevent these emergency situations, consider ordering an extra dumpster or a size larger than you think you will need. If you are unsure of what size you will need, you should consult one or two rental companies to get advice. 

Let People Know Ahead of Time if You Will Accept Personal Items 

When people hear that you are hosting a community cleanup they may assume that they can utilize the community dumpsters to get rid of their own trash or large furniture items that they no longer want. If you plan to accept these personal items, you should try to get a list of items ahead of time so you know how much dumpster space you will need. Otherwise, you may want to make it known that the dumpsters are only for community trash and not for personal items. You should make this known ahead of time, either at a community meeting or by posting the information on fliers. 

Order Different Containers to Separate Trash 

You should order at least two dumpsters, one for trash and the other for recyclable materials. However, you may want to order a third dumpster for items that are allowed in dumpsters but cost extra for disposal. This generally includes tires, mattresses and appliances. By separating out these items, you can have them disposed of properly without having to pay extra fees for all of your dumpsters. You should also separate out batteries and electronics and arrange a separate disposal for them.
