A permanent dumpster containers is a great way to solve your waste removal problem. Sometimes, residential-sized pick up isn’t enough. This is usually the case for businesses and organizations. Residential garbage collection doesn’t offer the level of service a company needs. So how do you begin searching for the best permanent dumpster containers in Southeast Michigan?
How Much Waste Do You Need Collected?
A small mom and pop shop will most likely not produce as much waste as a large-scale company or industrial business. You should review the amount of waste your organization produces on a regular basis. Choose a container that can hold the average amount of waste your business produces with a little room to spare. That way, you have some padding without paying for the biggest dumpster (unless you really need it).
How Often Do You Need Your Dumpster Emptied?
Collection schedules should also be considered when getting a permanent dumpster. How often will your container be emptied? Some companies offer daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly collection schedules.
Weekly is better if you are a large business that plans to fill your dumpster quickly. Bi-weekly works well for mid-sized businesses that may not need weekly service. Monthly is best for small businesses that don’t plan to produce significant waste.
Do You Have a Dedicated Place to Put a Dumpster?
Keep in mind that you will have to have a safe, legal place to put the dumpster. This should be a spot that’s easy for employees to access, so they don’t have to travel far or around obstacles to throw out the trash. Also, consider the dumpster dimensions when working with limited storage space. Contact Priority Waste today to learn more about dumpsters for businesses.

If cardboard is recycled properly, we can save trees and reduce the use of landfill space.
On Earth Day, it is important to note how we can do a better job in our recycling endeavors. Many of us think we are doing our part to help the environment but there are important details that many do not follow that thwart these endeavors. Earth Day is a perfect time to educate the public on what we need to do differently to get the most out of our recycling efforts.
Cardboard is a no-brainer as a recycling choice to help the environment. Over half of cardboard collected is used to make new cardboard boxes with others used for cereal boxes, shoeboxes and the like.
In order to use cardboard for recycling, there are a few simple steps that need to be followed:
- remove shipping materials such as bubble wrap and packing peanuts
- take out any plastic bags
- do not put boxes that have food, grease or oils in them such as pizza boxes
Why Are Pizza Boxes Problematic?
Pizza boxes are one of the largest contaminators of cardboard recycling. Although, many pizza boxes are made from recycled cardboard themselves, they cannot be recycled again if there is food, oil or grease in the box. If you want to place your pizza box in your cardboard recycle bin, you must cut away all soiled portions of the box first.
Priority Waste offers commercial customers’ cardboard only recycling. Commercial Recycling Containers are available in the following sizes: 6 cubic yard dumpster or 8 cubic yard dumpster. Contact us to learn more or to reserve your container.
Happy Earth Day from Priority Waste!
We wish you a warm and joyous Easter holiday.
Many situations create a need for the temporary use of a dumpster. These are usually one-time jobs like new construction, a renovation, or cleaning out a home before a move. So how do you choose the best service for a temporary dumpster container in Michigan?
Figure Out Your Capacity Needs
The capacity you need will vary from one project to the next. Most waste management companies will list each available container size along with information on what type of job it can accommodate.
Priority Waste’s smallest size is a 10 yard dumpster that can hold up to 2 tons of debris. This is ideal for household cleanouts as well as small renovation projects. The 20 yard dumpster may be a better choice if you will also be throwing away things like carpeting from a large home. There are also 30 and 40 yard dumpsters that are great for large scale and commercial jobs.
Choose a Company You Can Trust
You should feel confident about the waste management company you choose. Look at customer feedback and see what your container includes. Will they deliver and pick up the dumpster? Are they flexible with scheduling? Do they offer same-day service? And, most importantly, are they reliable?
Make Sure You Have a Space for Your Dumpster
Once you have decided on container size, you should make sure you have room to place it. The service will need access to the delivery location. It must be big enough for the dimensions of the dumpster and leave room for the driver to maneuver in and out. If you are working with limited space, you can try a smaller dumpster size that is picked up, emptied, and redelivered. Contact Priority Waste to discuss your dumpster containers needs.
