3 Tips to Avoid Throwing Your Money Away
Dumpster rentals can be a real lifesaver. Maybe you need to clean up before a big move so you can get your deposit back. Perhaps you work in construction and need refuse hauled away so your crew can get the job done. Whether you have a goal or want to free your life of unwanted baggage, there are ways to do it without throwing your money away.
- Rental Tip 1: Size Matters When It Comes to Dumpsters
Size matters when it comes to dumpster rentals. You may be tempted to look for the biggest container you can find. Before you finalize your reservation, make sure you really need all that space. Priority Waste’s smaller containers can hold a lot of refuse – including furniture and other larger items. Rent what you need and cut down on the cost of your clean out.
- Rental Tip 2: Reliability Can Save You Lots of Money
Dumpster dimensions are only part of the equation when choosing a waste management company for your rental. You also need someone who is reliable. Imagine what would happen if you are planning construction work or a move and you need the job done by a certain time. What happens if the dumpster isn’t there on time? You could lose money by missing deadlines.
- Rental Tip 3: Pack Properly & Throw Away More Garbage
Get a better value out of your dumpster rental by packing the container properly. Break down anything that you can, then start loading bulky items. Materials that can compress, like cardboard or foam, can be laid along the bottom first. Fill in any gaps with smaller debris, so you have a solid base, and then work your way up.

No matter what industry you are in, information is a valuable resource. The more you know about your operation, the better equipped you will be to find ways to improve it. Priority Waste offers audits that could provide the insight you need to increase efficiency and profitability.
Make Sure You Meet All Legal Requirements for Waste Disposal
Every area has a set of legal requirements when it comes to how businesses dispose of waste. An audit will provide you the information needed to compare your current operation to the regulations set forth by local laws to avoid expensive fines.
Find Ways to Save Money by Reducing Waste Production
A waste audit can reveal where you are producing the most waste so that you can find ways to reduce it. It will also provide insight that could help you more efficiently manage refuse across all departments or production stages.
Determine What Works and What Doesn’t with Your Current Program
Your waste audit will gather data that can show you where your current management program is successful or failing. You can identify weak and strong areas and adjust as needed. Find out what you’re doing right or how you can improve methods that are lacking.
Uncover Missed Opportunities to Reuse and Recycle
There may be materials that your business is throwing away daily that could be repurposed and reused. A waste audit will help highlight these materials and show you how to get more use out of them. Not only does it reduce waste production, but could cut down on other expenses like the purchase of new packing materials.

Earlier this year, Michigan governor Rick Snyder released his proposal to clean up the environment. This change would implement a trash tax to help fund the project. Residents and waste management services should pay attention because this could be big news that will affect pricing and improve the environment.
Snyder announced on January 30th that the efforts could raise $79 million each year. The money would go toward redeveloping polluted spaces, removing contaminants, environmental cleanup, and reducing nutrients found in Lake Erie.
If it goes through, the tax will come with a state surcharge on landfill waste. Costs would go from .36 cents to $4.75 per ton. According to Snyder, the proposal is a “comprehensive approach to cleaning up contaminated sites while addressing best practices for managing waste and recycling efforts.”
According to the governor’s office, the average Michigan household would see an increase of $4.75 annually for their regular trash collection services.
Another issue comes from Canadian garbage that is sent to landfills in Michigan because of the low surcharges, which was as little as 21 cents. Total garbage shipped in from Canada amounted to around 18% of Michigan’s solid waste in 2016. All other U.S. states totaled only 5.5%.
While there is some cost involved, it’s a noble effort to preserve and reclaim Michigan’s natural beauty. Priority Waste continues to offer dumpster rentals and recycling programs with the environment in mind. Contact us today to learn more about our eco-friendly services.
