Shop local for commercial dumpster rental and save money

So, why is our commercial dumpster rental service the best, most efficient you can get? Here are three reasons:

  • First, we keep our service area small. Many other commercial dumpster rental companies will offer service over a large area. But in the roll off dumpster business, it all comes down to the hauling. When other companies haul your waste over a longer distance, they pass on the extra fuel costs to you. When you rent from R&R, you’re renting from your neighbor, so the costs stay low.
  • Second, dealing directly with a local business like R&R containers eliminates the middleman. Many companies who sell commercial dumpster rental services don’t actually provide the service, they just act as brokers. Dealing directly with us will ensure you get the lowest price.
  • Third, because we will strive to place your container as close as possible to the clean up area. We also offer containers with side entry for loading of heavy debris. That way, your employees will save energy and time loading the container – which means more productivity, and more money in your pocket.

With R&R containers you can save money, boost productivity, and keep your dollars local, all at the same time. Give us a call today for a free quote! We can serve all your commercial dumpster rental needs.

R & R Container Service honoring our Military this Veterans Day

R & R Container Service honoring our Military this Veterans Day. We understand without the women and men who serve, we would not have the freedom we enjoy today.

R & R Container Service will honor our Military this Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a day for people to show their respects to those who have served. For one glorious day, please know that you are joined by so many around the world, who don’t spend their every waking moment living a military life, as you do. For one day, America bows their heads in awe of our veterans.

Originally, this holiday was called Armistice Day and was meant as a day of reflection for the heroism of those who died in the line of duty. On November 11th the Armistice was signed that ended World War I, thus giving the holiday it’s name, but in 1954, it was changed to Veterans Day in order to honor all veterans in all wars.

We see our brother veterans and young military members — our sons, daughters, grandchildren, husbands, wives and grandparents — and we can’t begin to image what they’ve been through in the name of our freedom. The depth of what they have witnessed is vast, and the appreciation we feel is deep.

Today, R & R Container takes the charge of Veterans Day to heart and is proud to honor America’s veterans for their service.

What are you doing this Veterans Day? Have you been taking advantage of the beautiful fall weather?

We think the answer is yes, because we have been extremely busy delivering and picking up roll-off containers during the month of October.

Our containers have been filled with construction debris, de-clutterings from basements, garages and attics, home improvement parts and tree trimmings. There definitely seems to be a lot happening in Acworth and the surrounding areas and we are grateful that you have chosen us to service all your hauling needs.

Have a blessed Veterans Day and for all who have served. Thank you!

I Speak for the Roll-off Container

I speak for the roll-off container to tell your where all your unwanted items and construction debris goes.

I Speak for the Roll-off Container

Have you ever wondered where all the things that you have tossed into your conveniently located roll-off container ended up? Most people don’t know, some probably don’t care and a few, who are still attached to items, might feel better about what I’m going to tell you. Of course, it depends on the city and the availability of recycling centers and landfills.

First, items can be recycled…

If it is an item that can’t be donated or reused and is made of recyclable materials it can be taken to a specific company. For example, if the roll-off container is filled with landscaping waste from a new home or from a storm clean up, many companies will take it to a place that will turn it into mulch to be re-sold. Or if the container is filled with old appliances or electronics, they can be hauled to stores who will properly dispose of the items after they have recycled any reusable parts.

Or taken to be reused to help someone in need…

Many roll-off container companies have liaisons with organizations such as the Salvation Army, Hospice, or Goodwill. Or maybe, you as a customer, have a personal preference? Let your container service know what you would like done with items you would like donated.

If you don’t have enough items to fill a roll-off container you can call these organizations directly to schedule a pick up. Remember, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Lastly, items are taken to a landfill…

Sometimes, there are no other options but to take a roll-off container to a dump or landfill. R & R Container Services is a licensed company which follows all the guidelines and rules by always disposing of items properly. Ask your roll-off container service about their “dumping policies”. If you find a company and there prices seem too good to be true chances are they might not be dumping on the “up and up”. You certainly wouldn’t want to get hit with extra fees or a penalty because your items were dumped illegally.

So, now you know what happens to items and debris that is tossed into a roll-off container and hauled away.
Since it does vary from one service to another, do your research, get reviews and recommendations so that you know you are hiring a reliable company.

How to keep your Roll-off Containers Bug Free

How to keep your Roll-off Containers Bug Free because no one likes creepy crawlies around their home or business.

Raccoon in roll-off container

Commercial dumpsters seem to be magnets for roaches, buzzing flies, maggots, and other bugs. A few insects can’t be helped, but when it turns into a down right infestation it can become a health hazard. And worse, when your roll-off container becomes a breeding ground for all sorts of creepy crawlies they can carry over to businesses and nearby homes.

Here’s how to keep your containers bug free and smelling better –

Set garbage rules. If food or other bug friendly items go into the dumpster make sure it is bagged tightly. Ask anyone else who is using the dumpster to do the same. In between scheduled pick-ups hose down the area around the container with antibacterial sprays. If your roll-off container is not being swapped out for a new container, periodically, use a pressure washer to keep goo from building up on both the inside and outside.

Place your roll-off container at least 50 feet away from buildings or doorways. Trim any overhanging branches that would make it easy for critters to go dumpster diving. Make sure there are no boxes or other debris piled up around the dumpster that could be a breeding ground for bugs.

Don’t let the trash in your container spill over. Keep it well contained inside the dumpster. Flies just love to breed in rotting garbage. Place a friendly sign on the container to keep people from using your dumpster for their household trash. Try to keep the lid and sliding doors closed.

There are many safe insecticides on the market today that you can spray around the roll-off container to keep the bugs at bay and not harm pets or the environment.

Having a roll-off container onsite makes waste management much easier, but it does require a little attention. As new insect and vermin viruses are discovered, many roll-off container renters taking bug control more seriously. Following these simple tips, can maintain any size container and reduce the risk of too many creepy crawlies.

Plus, your container area will look better and not stink to high-heaven in the dog days of summer.

As a seller in Acworth Ga, your best ace-in-the-hole is curb appeal. One of the first things a buyer will see is the outside of your house or property. Make the first impression count so that house hunters want to continue their tour.

If your property is already on the market but you’re not getting the traffic you’d like or if you’re just listing your home and want to stand out from other options in your area, think about these exterior home updates to help attract more potential buyers and improve the resale value of your property.

The Yard

Unless you are in the middle of the city, you will have some type of landscaping or yard. Remember, more than 90% of people looking to buy a home do an online search, viewing pictures of the property. If your house is beautifully landscaped, tidy and eye catching you will definitely rate a second glance.
House paint

The color of your house can make or break a sale. If you want to add value to your home think about a fresh coat of paint. A new paint job can cost around a $1000.00 but the return on the investment is usually about 90%. If this is not in your budget, rent a pressure washer and spend a weekend washing off any mold or dirt and touching up the paint, especially the paint around the window sills and doors.

The front door

The door to your home says a lot about the state of the property. A good quality front door will stand out in pictures as well as appeal to any buyers doing a drive-by. If it’s in your budget to replace your front door invest in fiberglass or wood. Either option has a high-end look and feel and will help boost the home’s resale. Or if you’re looking for a less expensive fix, replace the hardware and put on a new coat of paint. Do a search to find the current year’s trending colors.

Windows

If your windows are single-paned, have broken seals or broken panes you might want to update to the latest model. Newer windows are now designed to be energy efficient which can save homeowners money in the long run and add resale value to the property. Potential buyers will jump all over that!

Overall clean up

Lastly, if you have an old swing set, a broken riding mower, a rusting grill or other clutter around the house or yard, clean it up. It’ll make the yard look bigger. Add some bright colored flowers and a fresh coat of paint to the mailbox and buyers will be streaming through your house ohing and ahing.

Once you are done sprucing up the property to get it ready for sale call R & R Container Service to haul away the old windows, the yard debris and anything else unwanted so that your house can put it best foot forward.

Procrastination

Procrastination – the action of delaying or postponing something.

Dropping off a roll off container

Lately, it seems like I’m busy all the time but at the end of the day, I’m still not caught up. It’s aggravating to say the least. I feel like I have this little gremlin sitting on my shoulder snickering at my lack of accomplishment. But surely this is not from procrastination – I’m always doing something!! Or maybe, procrastination isn’t delaying doing something it’s not doing what I think I should be doing – that was an, aha, moment.

Have you heard the expression “Procrastination via alternative productivity”? It’s when you do something to keep from doing something else that you don’t want to do.

Is it time to tackle the mess in the garage? I’ll check emails instead.

Dreading cleaning out the storage locker? I’ll go organize my clothes.

Tedious project at work? The dog needs to go for a walk.

Old magazines and newspapers piling up? I’ll start my grocery list.

You get the picture?

The result? I do a lot of little things that maybe aren’t as important as some of other things. And now it’s the end of the day and I feel frustrated with my lack of productivity. I haven’t even made a dent in one of the projects. I can’t enjoy my evening and I lay in bed worrying about how I’m going to get this project completed.

Then a little voice pops up and says, “But you organized your clothes”. And my gremlin snickers and I know I have once again procrastinated via alternative productivity.

So, how do I change this habit? I’ve started making lists and prioritizing projects. No matter how much I might not want to clean out the garage, if that is first on my list then that is what gets done before anything else. I try not to think about how much I don’t want to do the chore. Instead, I note how nice it will be to have the room to park my car in the garage on rainy days or when the weather turns cold.

When the chore is completed. I pat myself on the back and say that wasn’t so bad and go on to the next item on the list. After all, if I’m willing to work, I might as well be productive and snicker at my gremlin.

And don’t put off tackling the garage, attic or basement because you hate hauling stuff to the dump. Call R & R Container Service at 770-975-9554 for all your hauling needs. They are a professional company with friendly staff who are more than willing to work with you and your clutter!
