Roll-off Container Rentals vs. Dumpster Bags

Roll-off Container Rentals vs. Dumpster Bags

Roll-off container rentals vs. dumpster bags to help with remodeling projects and/or house decluttering.  Even the smallest project can produce a huge pile of trash.  For instance, a small bathroom can produce up to a 150 lbs. per square foot of debris.  That can add up quickly. So, what is the best option?

Roll-off Container Rentals vs. Dumpster Bags

  • Haul the stuff yourself to the dump (this could get expensive and time consuming)
  • Purchase a dumpster bag
  • Rent a roll-off container

Most people are familiar with roll-off containers but less so with dumpster bags.  A dumpster bag is a portable, small collapsible container that you can use to dispose of a variety of materials. Bags can be purchased from home improvement stores or online retailers.  Once the dumpster bag is filled, a waste management company will need to be contacted to pick up and dispose of it.  Note, pick up service for bags isn’t available in all municipalities.  Before you purchase a dumpster bag, call your local waste management to confirm curbside service. 

To Bag or Not to Bag

  • A dumpster bag is only good for three cubic yards or less of debris. It is about a 600-gallon container and roughly eight by four by 2.5 feet high.
  • The maximum weight is around 3,000 pounds, so if your project involves heavy materials like rock, sand or bricks, after one cubic yard you will be at your weight limit.  
  • Dumpster bags are nowhere near as sturdy as a metal roll-off container.
  • Dumpster bags are reusable.
  • Dumpster bags are convenient for small jobs.

To Roll-off Container or Not to Roll-off Container

  • Roll-off containers come in different sizes. They start as small as 10 cubic yards and go all the way up to 40 cubic yards.
  • Roll-off containers are delivered to your door and picked up when you are finished.
  • Roll-off containers are designed to be easy on driveways and lawns.

Where Can Christmas Trees Go?

Where Can Christmas Trees Go?

Where can Christmas trees go after the presents have been unwrapped, all the cookies and cakes eaten and New Year’s Eve celebrated? Getting ready for the holidays is a wonderful time of the year for giving, presents, turkeys, hams and grandma’s cookies.   And though every home celebrates the season differently, for most, the main household centerpieces is the Christmas tree.  25 to 30 million live trees are sold every year.  Where do they all go when the holiday season ends?

Where Can Christmas Trees Go?

There are many options for disposing both live and artificial trees.  Check out the options below.

Real Christmas Trees

Pick up Service

In many urban and suburban areas, Christmas trees are collected from curbside during the first 2 weeks in January. Be sure to remove all wires, tinsel, decorations, lights, nails and stands.   If your area does not offer this service, many free and local drop-off recycling centers will take your Christmas tree.


Anywhere in Georgia! Bring One for the Chipper, the state’s annual Christmas tree recycling program, invites Georgia residents to bring their trees to local drop-off centers on January 4, 2020 from 9 am to 4 pm.  At many locations, Boy Scouts are on hand to help you quickly unload the tree.


Many farms and zoos will take donated trees for their animals to use as food and playthings.

Artificial Christmas Trees


Pick Up Service

Though artificial trees can’t be recycled, you can still leave them curbside, if your area offers this service, or be take it to a local drop-off center.


Many organizations such as hospitals and retirement homes will gladly take artificial trees for donations.  Other organizations like Good Will, Salvation Army and Church Thrift Stores will also accept artificial trees in good condition.

Be Crafty

Reusing an artificial tree each year will save you time and money.  When the tree starts to look worn, use various parts to create centerpieces, mantel decorations or wreaths.

We hope these suggestions come to mind when the Christmas season ends and it’s time to pack up the decorations. But until then, everyone at R & R Container wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

How to Make Your Small Home Feel Big

How to Make a Small Home Feel Big

How to make a small home feel big with these inventive ideas and organizational tricks.  When space is limited, it’s time to get resourceful, think big and utilize all the square footage that you can.  Follow the tips below to make your home spacious and comfortable.

How to make your small home feel big

In the living room

  • Before you buy a big bulky chair or block table, look at furniture with exposed legs and no arms. They will give the room a more open feel.
  • Avoid huge storage pieces and opt for built in shelves or floating bookcases. This will free up floor space.  Also, furniture such as benches or ottoman’s that have built in storage space are a good option.
  • Paint the walls a neutral color to keep it bright and airy. Add mirrors, especially if the windows are small or non-existent.
  • Be savvy and mount the TV on the wall. Entertainment centers are for huge basements and family rooms.  Not for small homes or apartment.

How to make a small home feel big

In the kitchen

  • Try to keep the countertops decluttered. Add floating shelves to help with small appliances or magnetic strips to hang utensils.
  • Similar to your living room, use light colors to help reflect light and make your kitchen appear larger.
  • Stay with light colored kitchen chairs and stools that aren’t bulky or oversized.

In the bathroom

  • Floating vanities or pedestal sinks will free up floor space. Baskets make great options for towels and linens.  Add a shelf or rack over the toilet to hold toiletries and such.
  • Medicine cabinets with a mirror will work two-fold. The mirror will help reflect light to make the room appear larger and hold toiletries.  Other mirrors of odd shapes like diamond, star or oval will help as well.
  • Change out the bathroom door for a pocket door. Pocket doors are way cooler.

How to make a small home feel big

In the bedroom

  • Chose a headboard that has shelves for books and built in reading lamps.
  • Toss out the nightstand and build floating shelves around the bed. Nab a lobster pot or old crate, turn it upright.  Now you have a place to store a basket or more books if you are a book junky.
  • Light colored gauzy curtains will show off your windows and let in a lot of natural light.
  • Keep your closets and drawers de-cluttered. Remember this rule – if you haven’t worn it or used it in six months toss it out!

Another tip is to create rooms that are multifunctional.  Let the laundry area also be the “mud room”.  A small kitchen counter can be a prep area or computer work space.  It just takes is a little organization, and you can easily make your small home feel bigger.

When you are ready to de-clutter call R & R Container Services.  They will be happy to provide a roll-off container to your doorstep.  They have big containers for big jobs and small containers for small jobs! Call today 770-975-9554

Best Fall Projects in Acworth, Georgia

Best Fall Projects in Acworth, Georgia

Best fall projects in Acworth, Georgia to start before winter.  Now that the summer heat isn’t keeping you indoors, it’s time to head outside to make repairs and get ready for the upcoming colder months.

Best Fall Projects

Georgia winters are fickle.  On Tuesday it’s warm, on Thursday it’s cool and by Saturday the temps are in the 20’s only to be back in the 60’s two days later.  Extreme weather changes are hard on roofs, outside paint, decking and plumbing systems.

Let’s start at the top and work our way down.

The Roof

Now is the time to check the roof for leaks and cracks.  You’ll want to fix any leaks before the first freezing rains or snowfall.  We recommend two things, first hiring a professional and qualified crew that can assess and fix your leaky roof quickly and safely.  Secondly, we recommend renting a roll-off container to haul away old shingles and roofing materials.

Exterior Paint

The warm days of fall in Acworth, Georgia offer enough time to paint the outside of your home long before Old Man Winter comes knocking.  A new paint job will help preserve the exterior.  Just avoid painting on days when the temperature will dip below 45 degrees.  Covering existing walls with siding can help save money down the road.  Think of it as an added layer of insulation and improve the value of the home.

The Deck

Decks are a major gathering place in the summer.  We celebrate birthdays, graduations, host book clubs, luncheons, dinners, barbeques and enjoy family-time under the eaves of the patio.  So, before winter strikes take the time to prepare the deck so that it doesn’t get damaged during freezing rains and snowfalls.  Start by power washing the deck to remove dirt, moss, mold and tannin-bleed.  Replace any rotten or lose boards and seal or stain the deck by applying two to three coats.  Come spring all the deck will need is a good washing.

The plumbing

To prevent frozen or burst pipes we recommend that you winterize exterior hoses and plumbing as well as the sprinkler system and outside faucets.  Also, insulating plumbing lines will help save money on your power bills.  Non-insulated pipes are a major cause of power use.  Follow the plumbing pipes to locate all lines outside or in unheated areas such as basements and garages.   Home improvement stores can recommend insulation or call a professional plumbing company for a complete assessment.

Roll-off Containers

For all your home improvements, fall projects and renovations call today to reserve or rent your roll-off container.  R & R Container Services will be more than happy to answer any questions.   Their affordable prices are based on your needs. Not enough refuse to fill a 12 cubic yard container? Don’t worry. They will charge you for only the space you use. Call R & R Container Services for more information at 770-975-9822.




Roll-off Containers for Summer Storm Clean Up

Roll-off Containers for Summer Storm Clean Up

Roll-off containers for summer storm clean up because let’s face it; hailstorms, windstorms, rainstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes have all touched Georgia in last few years.

Roll-off Containers for Summer Storm Clean Up

Summertime storms work differently than those driven by dynamic jet-stream-driven systems, and it can be very, very difficult to see the severity on radar because they aren’t spinning or causing long-term strong winds that are more easily tracked like Spring and Fall storms.

Plus, a storm does not have to be ‘severe’ to bring strong winds that can uproot trees, heavy rain that can bring flash flooding, and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning.  Any storm has the potential to cause damage to your property.

The Roof

High winds can loosen, lift or strip off roof shingles.  Hail can pit or bruise roof shingles.  Gutters can become clogged from leaves and asphalt granules or be completely ripped off.

The Windows

Hail can shatter windowpanes.  Be mindful of broken glass.  Pieces of flying debris can make small holes or cracks in windowpanes, letting in the weather and letting out the cold air from your already hard-working A/C unit.

Water Damage

Water damage is probably the number one issue with storms.  Check attic crawlspaces and basements for standing water.

Look for water stains on your walls or ceilings that can be caused by even the smallest leak.

Cleaning up outside

Be mindful of downed powerlines and trees when you first venture outside. Keep safety in mind as you begin clean-up.

Before you begin picking up debris take pictures so that you have documentation for insurance claims.

Children and pets should be kept away from flood waters.  Flood waters can contain chemicals, dangerous material hidden just below the surface and snakes!

If you find chemical containers, place them in separate bags so that they don’t mix.

Use safety glasses, work gloves, heavy-duty trash bags, a respirator mask and waterproof work boots to tackle messy jobs.

Call your local roll-off container company to have a dumpster delivered to your door.

Items you can put in the roll-off container:

  • Tree limbs and branches
  • Shingles
  • Drywall
  • Gutters
  • Glass
  • Fencing
  • Doors

Items you can’t put in the roll-off container:

  • Wet paint
  • Items considered to be hazardous waste- pesticides, gas, oil, mineral spirits, etc.
  • Electronics
  • Tires
  • Some appliances


A roll-off container will become your new best friend during storm clean up.

Since 1999, R & R Container Service has provided our residential, commercial, and industrial customers with superior, professional, and friendly roll off containers and waste management services. Call to schedule your container at 770-975-9554.
