We Did It Once Again! Thanks Ange's List!

Bin There Dump That Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award
Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

Bin There Dump That has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the dumpster rental service companies in San Antonio were able to do it.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

“We pride ourselves on going above the call of duty to provide outstanding customer service, especially in the industry of trash, where it’s least expected.”

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”

###

Angie's List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie's List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

Spring Break is Around the Corner!

Say Goodbye to old equipment and Hello to new equipment!

                       
                                                          Goodbye 4 yard bins...........
Say Hello to our new 6 yard bins!

The 6 yard bin will be able to accommodate larger loads of concrete, dirt, brick, rock, sand, asphalt, etc. at the same starting rate of $285.00 plus sales tax that includes up to 1 ton of disposal weight, the delivery, removal and up to 7 days of rental.

Keep in mind if the debris is clean 
concrete, dirt, brick, rock, sand, asphalt, etc., we will not have to weigh it on the scale.

                                       
 
  
         We are ending this year with a new truck fleet!
                

In addition to our F-550 trucks, we are bringing in an M2 Freightliner truck to better assist with our heavier loads, including our new 6 yard bins that will hold more dense materials. 

Please keep in mind, a larger truck cannot fit in tighter spaces like our F-550's can, alleys and tight single lane driveways can be an issue for this heavy duty truck, along with front and back yards.
 
 
                      Don't Forget

                                                 
              WE OFFER 14 YARD HAULING TRAILERS!

                                 

in October 2016, we added hydraulic hauling trailers to our fleet to better serve you in different aspects of your business! They are great for street placement (since they will have wheels, usually a permit is not required), great for roofing projects, avoiding low overhead wires or trees, and can be delivered in franchised areas. 

The trailers are 14 cubic yards, starting at $335 for up to 10 days of rental. Once inventory increases, we will be able to provide you with up to 30 days of rental. We will need a 48 hour notice for scheduling as they will be delivered by a different truck than the Ford 550’s that deliver the dumpsters. We will provide blocks and chalks with every trailer for safety and of course sweep up under the trailer before we leave.

As a friendly reminder our operating hours are Monday thru Friday from 7am to 6pm and Saturday from 8am to 12 pm; closed on Sundays. We do offer after hours delivery and removals at an additional cost if ever needed.

Tips and tricks for Garage Organization

The garage seems to be the one place in our homes that we tend to allow to get a little chaotic. It becomes somewhat of a storage unit for all of our wants, needs, and sentimental items that we just can’t let go of. It can become an intimidating thought to even consider taking a day to clean it out. With everything that’s out there, it’s got to take more than a day right? Possibly not! With these few tips and tricks to cleaning out and organizing your garage, it can hopefully be done in just a day and you’ll be able to reclaim the area for the car that you’ve been wanting to park in there for some time now!

First of all, you’re going to want to pull everything out from the garage to be able to determine what you have and where it will all go. This also gives you a clean slate to help you decide how you will set up your garage to suit your needs. Next, go through everything that you’ve just pulled out and ask yourself what you want to keep, sell, donate, or just throw away. When making these decisions you can ask yourself questions like the following:
-        - Do I need this?
-        - Am I going to be using this anytime in the near future?
-        - Is it outdated and is it time to upgrade?
-        - Does this still work?
-        - Would this be more beneficial to someone else?
Once you’ve answered all your questions and have the piles of keep and toss, rent a dumpster! Calling the day before you clean out your garage to schedule your dumpster is best. This way, you have the dumpster at your ready and can toss as you go. It also helps to get everything you no longer want or need gone faster. You don’t have to haul it away yourself or have it sitting on your curb waiting to get picked up by the city.

Now that you have all you want separated ready to go back in the garage, give the garage a nice spruce. Sweep the floors, get all the dust out, maybe a little spray down with the hose to really give it a shine, and fix anything that might need a repair.

Lastly, it’s time to organize! Going vertical is best when storing items in a garage to get the most use out of the space you have, especially if it’s a smaller one car unit. For smaller tools such as, drill bits, screwdrivers, wrenches, you could put up magnetic strips to house them on the walls freeing up any drawer space you might have for other items. Also consider saving little jars. You can screw them to the bottom of a shelf and use them as holders for nails and screws. For boxes of trash bags, you could re-purpose a paper towel holder to take the roll out of the box and hang it on the wall. Easy access and you don’t have to worry about having yet another box in the garage. Dedicating a small space next to the door or entry to the house can also help keep clutter from occurring. Hang a coat, backpack, umbrella rack next to the door and have a little shoe rack to prevent shoes from tracking in mud or dirt and becoming misplaced. Wire baskets are great for getting the little items off the floor and they are stackable on the wall to really utilize all usable space.


Using these simple tips and tricks can really turn a garage from a disaster zone to an accessible little storage unit!

One way we determine the cost of a rental is based on the debris type of what is being disposed. The different types of debris go to different landfills, all of which have their own pricing. When ordering your bin, you want to make sure that you are ordering it for the right type of debris. Easiest way to do this would be to explain to the sales representative or office staff member what exactly the project is that you are doing and what the disposal will contain. If it so happens that the type of debris is different than what was agreed on upon arrival to remove your bin, there will be a fee accessed for having to take the bin to a different landfill.
There are three different types of debris that we accept. One is construction debris. Examples of this debris would be anything that it takes to build a house such as, toilets, sheet rock, kitchen counters, dry wall, siding, etc. Another type is household or mixed debris. This covers things that you would find in a household trash can or items in a garage. The last debris type would be quarry debris. This one consists of items such as rock, cement, dirt, sand, etc. Each one of these debris types has a designated landfill.
Ways to prevent having a debris difference fee accessed and charged would be to tarp your bin, keep a close eye on your bin, and make sure that you state to your sales rep or the office staff exactly what you intend to dispose of. Tarping your bin can prevent the incident of a neighbor throwing their trash freely in your bin. The tarps can be purchased at places like Wal-Mart which has been the least expensive we have personally seen so far, or a hardware store like Home Depot. Keeping a close eye on your bin can also prevent items from being thrown in with all else you are disposing of. Keep the lights on outside and inside to make people think you are home. Post a sign that they are being videoed taped and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I you have any more questions, feel free to speak to a sales representative or our office staff for more details 210-441-2121.

Don't Let the Rain Affect Your Bin Rental

Due to Landfills charging by the weight of debris, BTDT San Antonio would like to give a few suggestions to help keep the rainwater from being soaked up by the debris in our customers bins and help prevent overweight fees:

  1. If you're ordering a bin and are aware of the rain chances, ask your sales representative to add to your order a couple of extra boards under the bin so it will sit at a slant to allow the water to seep out the back doors. Pleases be aware that anything mixed with the water can pour out onto your driveway and may cause staining or damages.
  2. Tarps are another good preventative for rainwater and from the possibility of others dumping their trash into your bin. Our dimensions can be found on our website, or you can call or email the sales representative at any time to get assistance with them. We recommend, when buying a tarp, to buy one a couple of feet larger than the bin and buying one with grommets. The least expensive tarp that we have personally shopped for was at our local Wal-Mart; other possibilities of finding tarps may be at your local hardware stores.
  3. There is debris that is considered very porous and will absorb the rainwater causing the bin to be even heavier than it would be if the debris were dry. Some of the debris considered porous are carpet, mattresses, clothing, paper, sheet rock, etc. Covering the bin with a tarp would be the best suggestion for debris of this sort because the items are so porous, tilting the bin would not make a difference since the rainwater is being absorbed.
BTDT San Antonio is here to help our customers in any way we possibly can. Do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions or concerns at 210-441-2121.
