Best Landscape Project Ideas

Nowadays you can find a huge variety of DIY yard projects on the web.  There is everything from an at-home cutting garden to porch decorating, Koi ponds, outdoor fire pits and cozy verandas.  What are your projects for this Spring? 

A good place to start is by cleaning up lawns and flower beds.  Like an artist, with a clean palette, the sky’s the limit with what you can build and create.  

If you are working on flower beds, check with your local nursery to see what types of flowers thrive in your area.  

Are you thinking about adding trees or shrubs?  Keep in mind the size of the area where you will be planting.  Make sure any trees or plants you select aren’t going to outgrow the space or take over existing plants.  

In addition to planting greenery, think about adding features such as pebble walkways, arbors, swings, a koi pond and rockscapes to really give that area a “wow” factor.

How a Roll-off Container Can Help

As long as you are not disposing of hazardous or dangerous materials, almost any yard waste can go into a roll-off container. 

Debris such as:

  • Topsoil
  • Plant material
  • Bricks
  • Gravel
  • Concrete
  • Cinder Blocks 
  • Wood
  • Rocks

Most roll-off container rental companies, such as R & R Container Services in Acworth, GA, will be happy to do a free consultation to discuss container sizes and what would work best for your needs. 

 Place the Container Close to Your Work Area

Most containers are safe for driveways and yards. Wood can be placed under the container for greater protection to asphalt and grass.  Show the driver where you will be working so that they can place the container in the most convenient spot.  

Keep in mind that if you will have the container for more than 24 hours, it shouldn’t be place on the street without getting a permit.  

No matter what type of project you take on this spring, your local roll-off container company can help you haul away landscape materials and debris.  What better time to spruce up your yard with a special area for parties or quiet time.

Serving Acworth, GA and surrounding areas, R & R Container Services provides prompt, consistent and professional services for waste management container delivery and pick-up. They are family owned and operated.  Call today for your free consultation at 770-975-9554.

 

Has Winter Weather Damaged Your Home?

Has Winter Weather Damaged Your Home?

Has winter weather damaged your home causing loose gutters, roof leaks, broken pipes and/or siding issues?  Here’s what to look for as Spring begins to blossom in beautiful Acworth, Georgia.  

Has winter weather damaged your home?  shingles on a roof missing and torn off.  

Loose Gutters

It only takes a little snow and freezing temperatures to form ice dams along the edge of your roof.  These dams can dislodge gutters and shingles.  Falling debris can crush gutters, sending  the flow of water under shingles instead of into the ground.  Carefully, examine your gutters for any damage to ensure they are working properly, especially as those Spring rains begin to fall. 

Roof leaks

Winter storms can damage a roof in different ways.  Hail and falling debris can damage shingles.  High winds can lift shingles or tear them right off of the roof. Heavy rains can cause water to pool, creating or worsening leaks.  Before a watermark begins to grow on your ceiling call a professional roofing company to give your roof a once over. 

Siding Damage

Severe cold weather, or extreme changes in temperature, can cause exterior paint to crack.  Water loves to find these tiny cracks and seep in between the siding and the paint.  Once this happens  the paint will begin to peel and mold will form.  Sealing the holes with water-proof paint stops further damage.  

Frozen pipes

When water freezes inside your pipes, the pipes expand and often crack.  The leak may be small at first but left untreated it will quickly grow until the pipe finally bursts, flooding your home.  If you have pipes that are exposed, wrapping them with heat tape will keep them from freezing. Shut off the water to any outside pipes that aren’t being used.  

If you do find you need to replace roofing, siding or flooring caused by winter storm damage, call your local roll-off container rental company.  They will be happy to provide you with the correct size roll-off container to meet your needs.

The Perfect Way to Haul Off Old Furniture

What About Local Waste Management Companies

Some cities still offer removal services for larger items. Unfortunately, if they serve a large area, you may have to wait an extended period of time for pick-up and typically, they will charge $75 per item. You may also want to check to see if there is a limit to how many items they will take per trip. 

Junk Removal Services

Junk removal companies are another option. They normally offer full-service and will dispose of items via recycling and donation centers.  Their prices are in the same ballpark as a roll-off container rental.  The plus side of a roll-off container rental is that you will have the container at your disposal for five to seven days.

Tips to Manage Holiday Waster

Tips To Manage Holiday Waste

Tips to manage holiday waste so that all the boxes, gift wrapping, food containers and unwanted presents don’t overflow your trash cans!

According to Stanford University, “Americans throw away 25% more trash during the Thanksgiving to New Year’s holiday period than any other time of year. The extra waste amounts to 25 million tons of garbage, or about 1 million extra tons per week!”

Below are a few tips to help minimize holiday waste.

Tip for Managing Holiday Waste

Who Has Trash Detail?

It may be “the most wonderful time of the year,” but it can also be the busiest time of the year.  By renting a roll-off container, you can take one thing off your “to-do” list. A roll-off container will eliminate overflowing trash cans and one or two extra trips to a transfer station.

If you don’t want to rent a roll-off container for the holiday season, consider the following:

Choose Intangible Gifts 

Instead of sending greeting cards through the mail, send them electronically.  Did you know gift cards work virtually as easily as non-perishable plastic cards?  And the wonderful thing about virtual gift cards is you know the receiver is getting the gift they will use that won’t end up in the trash pile.

Dig Out Reusable Items

I bet you have a huge array of items that you can repurpose or even up cycle.  Items like over-sized scarves, handkerchiefs, brown paper bags and maps make creative wrapping paper.  Paint or decorate Amazon boxes to reuse as gift boxes.  Plastic containers that held produce or cheese trays can be used as gift boxes and are great for disguising the true identity of a present.  

Give to Charity

Check with your local church to see if they are collecting items for a family who is struggling this year.  Tell your family everyone is getting one less present so that you can provide a needed gift for someone who is less fortunate.

Don’t let holiday trash overwhelm you! 

R & R Container Services has affordable prices based on your needs. Not enough refuse to fill their 12 cubic yard container? No worries. They will only charge you for the space that you use. For more information or an estimate call 770-975-9554.

Have a safe and happy holiday!

Here’s What They Will Tell You

  • Renting a roll-off container at this time of year won’t be a problem. It is during peak summer months, when everyone is taking advantage of the nice weather that R & R Container Services has trouble filling all the rentals requests.
  • Their containers are safe for pavements and yards and are residential friendly. That means they snug up close and conveniently to your house.
  • They will promptly pick up the container and dispose of the waste when you’re done using it – it’s just that simple!

  • They only charge you for only the space you use in the container.
