Transfer Station Compactor Service

Stationary or Break Away Compactor
Stationary or breakaway compactors involve a ground-mounted compactor connected to a removable roll-off receiver container normally 40 to 42 cubic yards in size (smaller receiver containers are available) for collecting the waste material. This type of compactor is used when there are large volumes of dry, compactable materials being generated and there is not a space limitation issue on-site. The container is then picked-up by roll off truck once it is full. This type of compactor can be used for solid waste or recyclable materials. Please contact us if you would like to meet with a sales specialist regarding the use of a stationary or breakaway compactor.

Orlando Residential Roll-off Dumpster Rentals

Roll-off dumpster rental is an effective solution for many different waste removal scenarios. It’s ideal for one-time use at a construction site, for commercial waste transport during busier times of the year, or as part of your business’s regularly scheduled industrial waste removal. Roll-off dumpsters are great for clearing out excess waste from an outside site and for cleaning out a warehouse or residence full of trash and extra packaging materials.

Common uses for commercial roll-off containers include:

●     New construction and demolition projects

●     Kitchen or bathroom remodeling projects

●     Landscaping projects that produce yard waste

●     Commercial roofing projects and roof tear-offs

●     Warehouse clean-outs

●     Commercial junk removal

●     Clean-up after a storm or natural disaster

Construction projects generate a significant amount of waste creating logistical challenges for the contractor. We understand the last thing you need is ineffective waste disposal issues throwing your project off track. Let us be your dependable waste-removal partner so you can remain focused on more critical items. With various sizes to choose from, we offer roll-off dumpsters that can fit into tight spaces and accommodate projects of any scope and size.

The Importance of Recycling Batteries

Who knew that something so relatively small could be so powerful?!

Environmental Effects

While they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, all batteries have two elements in common: an electrolyte and a heavy metal, like mercury, lead, cadmium, or nickel. These metals are extremely harmful to the environment when not disposed of properly. Even if they are incinerated, many of these metals are still released into the air, causing contamination.

Recycling batteries saves natural resources, because plastic and metals from used batteries can be used to make new batteries and protects the environment by keeping heavy metals out of landfills and the air.

Purchasing rechargeable batteries is one of the best ways to help reduce the number of batteries in the waste system.  Think about how many electronics in your home run on batteries.  If you replaced four rechargeable batteries a month, by the end of the year, you would have made a shift that will be economical for you and helpful for the environment.  It’s a win/win!

Where to Recycle

Are you wondering where you might be able to recycle batteries? Chances are you pass by or frequent a few of places on your daily commute or weekend errands. Lowe’s, Best Buy and Batteries Plus are just a few places you can drop off batteries to be recycled.

Batteries are often accepted at household hazardous waste collection events hosted by cities and counties. There are also mail-back programs that allow you to return batteries for recycling through the mail.

The Recycling Guide invites you to see how many batteries you can round up around your house this month. Help spread awareness and make a move toward a better environment by invited friends and family to join in your efforts!  Share this information with your family and friends and help us create a more sustainable environment.

Tell us, did you learn something new about batteries?

If you’re interested in more information about batteries, check out the Recycle Guide source.

We Remove Old Carpet from the Curb – Call Today!

So you just spent the weekend cleaning out all your closets. You have four giant black garbage bags of clothes to get rid of. What is the best way to do that? Think before you make that decision, as it is estimated that textiles make up more than 5.2% of our landfills. Disposing incorrectly of your unnecessary or unwanted clothing, towels, sheets, curtains, rugs or pillows can directly impact our environment.

Tips for Recycling or Reusing Your Textile Items

  • You should start with 3 piles: Good, fair and poor condition items.
  • Good and fair condition items can be donated to thrift stores or charity and will benefit the consumer, as well as those charities the store represents. And you may get a tax write off for the donation.
  • Another idea is to organize a clothes swap. Gather friends of your same size and swap clothes! This way everyone wins because who doesn’t like new (to you) clothes!
  • One of the newest ideas to reusing clothes is the online sales website. There are many choices for selling your good condition used clothing. And you can make some money in the process! ThredUP or Poshmark are great options.
  • If you don’t feel like bothering with online sales, go to an old-fashioned brick and mortar consignment store and let them do the sales work for you.
  • Poor condition clothing should be recycled. Some clothing stores contain recycling bins or you can drop off your textiles to a recycling center. Once processed, the recycled material can be used for mattresses, car insulation, roofing felts, loudspeaker cones, panel linings furniture padding and more.

Inspire others to reuse or recycle their old clothing and textiles! Post a photo of your efforts to FaceBook or Twitter using #RecyleGuide and keep our landfills free of these items!

We offer Trash Collection and Bulk Item Removal in Amarillo Texas

Reducing Costs by Reducing Garbage Volume
Most businesses have waste management costs, which can be defrayed by recycling all possible materials. What is left is everyday commercial trash that must be sent to landfills. Improving garbage management with the use of trash compactors and balers can reduce the unavoidable costs of refuse or rubbish disposal.

Cost-Saving Strategies for Solid Waste Management
Reducing volume and weight are the key factors to reducing handling, storage, and pickup costs for commercial trash and garbage. Some of the ways to maximize resources with a garbage compactor include:

Reducing volume of waste by 50-90%, resulting in a tightly packed result.
Less frequent pickups required due to the reduced volume and efficient storage, resulting in lower transport costs.
Freeing up facility space previously used to store un-compacted garbage.
Better sanitation due to the densely compacted form which will not spill, spread out, or be exposed to the air.
Better use of employee time by eliminating multiple trips to the dumpster with bulky loads of garbage.
Improving the environmentally friendly reputation of your business by recycling all possible materials and compacting the rest to reduce your carbon footprint.
Equipment Used for Industrial or Commercial Garbage Management
Developing an integrated solid waste management plan will involve adding additional equipment. With the cost savings and recycling recovery possible, this investment offers immediate and substantial returns.

Every business is unique, and our solid waste consultants have the expertise to help you create the perfect system. These solutions are easy to implement, convenient to use, and available in the right size for your space and application.

An Industrial Garbage Compactor uses a metal ram to crush waste into tight blocks. For specialized uses, it can be equipped with chutes, hoppers, ground feeders, or other options. Our powerful and innovative waste management and recycling solutions can be rented, leased, or financed, so there is no need to keep working with an antiquated and unsanitary system that wastes valuable resources.

Winter Trash & Recycle Collection Tips

With winter comes snow storms, freezing rain, high winds, ice, and poor road conditions.

Trash and recycling collection is a service that persists all year long, and the conditions that come with winter often affect our ability to collect. While we try to provide outstanding reliable service to our customers regardless of weather or road conditions, there are some situations we cannot avoid.

We have some of the most helpful winter tips listed here.

Clear your collection spot. If your container is stuck in the snow or ice, we will be unable to service it, or the container may be damaged when picked up. Please be sure to shovel or plow and use salt or sand around your container to prevent freezing.

If you have curbside service, shovel a spot at the curb or place your container or bags in your plowed/shoveled driveway. Do not place your containers or bags in the street. This creates a hazard for the snow plows.

Don’t set your container on uneven packed snow or ice. Your container may tip and spill or fall into the roadway.

Keep your containers visible. If your container is hidden by a snow pile or blends in with the snow, our drivers may not see the container. Remove snow piles from near your container, and consider using black bags or plastic garbage totes during the winter to make them stand out against the snow, especially in the dark hours of the morning.

Make sure to shovel in front of and under your container. Many of our drivers have to push and pull these containers by hand. If there is snow/ice buildup in front of or under your container, they may be unable to service your container.

If you have an enclosure clear a path for your gates to open completely so the containers can be serviced. Use salt or ice melt, to keep your pin holes clear of ice and to keep your dumpster path clear.

Make sure your lid is closed. If your lid is open, rain and snow will accumulate in your container. When the weather is below freezing, this may cause the contents in your container to freeze. Many of our customers are picked up by an automated side loading truck (ASL) and the driver will not know there is contents frozen in the container. If your lid is damaged and prevents you from keeping the water out, please call us to request it be repaired. If you do not have a plastic garbage container and would like one, please let us know.

If your trash freezes in your container you may have to roll it into an enclosed building to thaw, or use salt or ice melt to free the debris. We are unable to swap containers out for frozen contents.

Our hours of service may fluctuate. Our drivers start at 5 a.m, even in the winter. We ask you to set your container out the night before, or by 5 a.m. so you do not get missed. However, leave your containers out until at least 7 p.m.. During the winter our drivers may take longer to collect your refuse. If your trash or recycling has not been collected by the morning after your service day, please call us.

We are not the street department. In many cities, the trash and recycling service is partnered with the street department. We are a private hauler and do not have any connection to plowing.

Some situations where we may be unable to service your route:
Roads too icy to traverse. Our trucks are much larger than a car or pickup. Even if you are able to travel down a road, there isn’t a guarantee we will be able to. Garbage trucks have very little traction on icy roads and can be very dangerous to all involved. For the safety of our drivers and other drivers, we may have to declare a road too icy for us to traverse

Extreme frigid temperatures or reduced visibility. We may have to start our routes at a later time in the day, or post-pone it for the following day for extreme frigid temperatures or if there is not enough visibility to safely drive.

Lack of a turn around. If our trucks are unable to turn around due to an unplowed area, they may be unable to service your container. If this happens you may have to bring your container to the closest plowed roadway until our trucks are able to safely service your home or business.

Unplowed roads. When snow storms happen municipalities are usually the first streets plowed. We may attempt to service a home or business prior to it being plowed.

HHW is derived from municipal solid waste (MSW) with the exception of used oil which is excluded from the category of MSW. Examples of recycling include processing HHW components into new products after they have been diverted from the waste stream.

At the end of the day the waste is covered with soil or special fabric cover (unless specifically exempted by state regulators.) Once the lined area is completely full, it is covered with an engineer-designed cap. Regulations mandate the periodic testing of ground water, leachate levels and gas emissions. Landfills are accounted for a separate line of business within the WM organization. Different types of landfills include MSW, C&D, Asbestos Monofil, Ash Monofil, Special Waste and Hazardous Waste.

Trash and Recycling Pick-up in Alameda CA

A recipe for recycling
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), food waste makes up more than 24% of landfill waste in the United States. But it doesn’t have to. Instead of feeding landfills and creating methane and carbon dioxide, you can use food waste to create biogas—which supports renewable energy—or you can compost it. By recycling food waste, you protect the environment, help sustain farms, and feed communities.

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle! Atlanta, GA

Happy America Recycles Day – November 15

There is no better time than today to start recycling! According to America Recycles Day, 75,496 people have signed the #BeRecycled pledge. If you sign the pledge, here is what you will be committing to do:

  • Learn – I will find out what materials are collected for recycling in my community.
  • Act – Within the next month, I will reduce the amount of waste I produce, I will recycle more, and I will buy products made with recycled content.
  • Share – In the next month, I will encourage one family member to take the #BeRecycled pledge.

Recycling starts with an awareness of how you personally impact our environment. There are 3 main ways to recycle: reduce, reuse, recycle. Reducing the amount of items you waste, reusing the items you can, and recycling those items you can’t reuse.

The Recycle Guide | America Recycles Day 2018

Reduce

As you consider ways to reduce, think about your shopping habits. What do you buy that you don’t need or that you could borrow or share with someone? Purchase products that can be recycled or reused. Instead of buying a cabinet full of cleaning products, buy all-purpose cleaners to cut down on bottles and glass container waste. Choose items with less packaging. Contact all of your creditors to go to paperless billing. This can also save you money and storage space. Go through your home and donate any items you are not using – this will benefit others and you as you will have less clutter.

Hazardous waste has become a big problem for our environment. Check out How to Recycle for ways to reduce the amount of hazardous waste you create.

Reuse

Repurposing or reusing is a great way to clean up our environment. This decision can save you money as well as you won’t have to spend on buying new items.

Reusing or Repurposing Ideas

  • Plastic Grocery Bags – reuse these to carry items after you use them for your groceries or use them as small trashcan liners. Many people use them to clean out the cat litter or to clean up after the dog rather than purchasing bags.
  • Reclaimed Wood – the reclaimed wood industry has gotten a boost in the last few years as so many of us are using it for decorating. If you aren’t particularly artsy, advertise your used wood online and you may find a buyer!
  • Cardboard and Newspaper – can be used to line an animal cage or for packaging items for shipping.
  • Blankets and Towels – many pet shelters and zoos are looking for these items. Homeless shelters and other charities are always happy to take them.
  • Egg Cartons – you can use these to separate beads, screws, nails, or any other small items. You can also use them as seed starters to grow plants.
  • Old Cell Phones, Computers, Tablets and Household Appliances – donate these to The Salvation Army or Goodwill as they may be able to repair or use them for parts.

For more ideas on repurposing your unwanted items, have a look at Mother Earth News.

Recycle

Recycling has a direct impact on cleaning up our environment. Just by following a few simple rules, you can change the entire future of our world!

Helpful Hints for Recycling

  • Keep a recycling bin nearby and make sure that everyone in your household or work area is aware of where it is located
  • Check with your local recycling collection centers to make sure you understand what may need to be separated in to different bins
  • Buy recyclable products whenever possible
  • Purchase products made from recycled materials to support the effort and cut waste
  • Use grass clippings in compost to spread under your bushes and trees to provide extra nutrients
  • Make recycling a natural part of your every day life and it will become a good habit

Learning Resources

If you’re a teacher looking for resources to help your students or a parent trying to teach your kids about recycling, The Recycle Guide has the best free resources and links. The How to Recycle section, Recycling in Schools and Recycling Activities are perfect places to start.

Proper ways to Dispose of Paint & Oil

While adding color to your home or business can certainly give it a facelift, we should all consider the environmental impact of the paint. From indoor painting to outdoor painting to furniture refinishing, there are different types of paint you can choose from. Paint is often considered a hazardous material and can be harmful to people, animals and the environment. So choosing wisely is important.

Tips for Environmentally Safe Paint Disposal

  • Properly dispose of leftover water-based paint. You should never pour paint or any paint-related products down your household drain. Paint should be packaged correctly in a sealed container and then picked up or delivered to a hazardous material waste center.
  • Latex and oil-based paints should be dried up using a paint hardener or cat litter. Latex paints can then be recycled and oil-based paints should be taken to your nearest hazardous waste location.
  • Make sure if you don’t use all of the paint, you save it for another project or donate it to a church, school or a local theatre to use. This will avoid more waste.
  • Allow your almost empty cans to air out and dry up before sealing them.
  • Choose paints made with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) – these are better for the environment. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are organic chemical compounds whose composition makes it possible for them to evaporate under normal indoor atmospheric conditions of temperature and pressure.”
  • Always ensure proper ventilation when using any type of paint.

What about Motor Oil?

Another item that is a concern environmentally is motor oil. Many of us like to save a little money by changing our own oil and oil filter. This is great as long as you take care to dispose the used oil and filter properly. Motor oil can pollute our water and isn’t safe for anyone to ingest.

Tips for Environmentally Safe Oil & Oil Filter Disposal

  • Used motor oil should never be poured on the ground, in any water source, in a storm drain or put in the garbage.
  • Do not mix motor oil with any other items.
  • Once you transfer your used motor oil to a leak-proof container, you can dispose of it at your local Advance Auto PartsAutoZone, or Wal-Mart Super Center Tire and Lube Center. Often these stores only accept a maximum of 3 gallons of oil.
  • When disposing of a used oil filter, do the following: punch an air hole in the dome end of the filter and in the anti-drain back valve (if present), located at the flat end of the filter. Leave the oil to drain from both ends of the filter for several hours each. Pour this oil in with the rest of the used motor oil for recycling.

  • Recycling and trash crews begin collecting at 7:00 am.  We recommend that trash be set out between 6 – 7 a.m., on day of service, to reduce littering that results when animals get into trash bags overnight.  Please note, routes do change for time of day weekly, due to several factors, so all residents must have trash and recycling at curb by 7:00 am on day of service.  A return in service will not be granted for those “not-out” when trucks go by initially.  
  • If a holiday falls during the week, trash and recycling collection takes place on the day following the holiday, and collection for the remaining days of the week also takes place one day later than usual. Friday trash is collected on Saturday during such weeks.
  • Who’s Eligible? Single-family homes, duplexes, and apartments or other housing units in buildings that contain six or fewer units get weekly residential trash collection and weekly curbside recycling service.

  • Trash tags: We pick up two bags per week per eligible household without tags.

  • The City will hold two, one week-long, no-tag (“trash amnesty”) events per year.  Typically held the week after the 4th of July holiday and the Christmas holiday.  Watch for advertised dates.  
  • How to store and put out your trash: Use these useful tips.

Residents should set their recyclables out every week. The recycle bin signals the recycling truck to stop. (Eligible households are single-family residences and apartments of six or fewer units). The frequently asked questions page answers more than a dozen questions about the program and recycling in general.

Prior to recycling, please remove food and rinse containers. Don’t contaminate!  Also, do not place your trash bag on top of your recycling bins.  If you do, your trash may be mistaken for bad recycling and/or your recycling will be violated for plastic bags or for bagging your recycling.

Yard Waste Collection

We help our communities stay environmentally sustainable by disposing of yard waste such as tree stumps, weeds and grass clippings in a safe and responsible manner.

We offer on-demand bulk waste pickup services for various household items such as: major appliances, furniture and mattresses. Please contact your local city or county for proper disposal procedures of electronic items.

Household Hazardous Waste Collection Options

Some household items such as insecticides, cleaners, paints and motor oil contain solvents and metals that can harm the environment and are classified as Hazardous Household Waste. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals can also increase the risk of adverse health effects and may lead to liver, kidney, heart, lung and skin diseases.
