The city of Edmonton is particular about waste management. Just last March, the Edmonton Sun reported that the city has opened an Eco Station in Kennedale. These facilities are used by the city for getting rid of hazardous waste. The station also has a Reuse Area where people can pick up items that are still reusable. The launch of yet another Eco Station further proves just how committed the city is to environment protection and, at the same time, provide convenient ways for its residents to join the movement.
With the Kennedale Eco Station, the city now has four stations. Residents now have a better chance of finding a location that would be most convenient for them to take their hazardous wastes to. The other locations are: Coronation (Northwest), Ambleside (Southwest), and Strathcona (Central).
Some of the items classified as hazardous are leftover paint, batteries, and light bulbs. People can dispose of them for free in the Eco Station. These wastes can cause great harm to the environment if not disposed of well (i.e. together with non-hazardous waste in the garbage).
If you have a need to transfer hazardous waste—or any type of junk, for that matter—on a massive scale, you’d need some big containers to put them in; just any large container won’t do. There is the environmental and health safety to think about when dealing with wastes. Whether you’re cleaning out a garage, attic, or an industrial warehouse, you need specialized dumpsters for your Edmonton junk removal.
Picking the Right Size
The size of the dumpster you’ll be renting must be of adequate size for the project you’ll be doing, but it shouldn’t be too big, either. Edmonton dumpster rental services, such as those from Bins by Jo Ltd., present dumpsters of different sizes to cater to different projects. The dumpsters are not just for junk removal but also for transferring special materials in large quantities, like concrete, soil, or bricks. Ranging from 12 to 50 cubic yards, picking the right size might not be as easy as it seems.
Factors you need to consider are the amount of debris you’ll be dumping and the space where it will be delivered. It should be able to contain all your debris and fit in the destination. Keep in mind that dumpsters will be attached to a truck.
