The Environmental Benefits Of Proper Waste Management How Dumpster Rentals Can Help – Pack Mule Dumpster Rentals

The-Environmental-Benefits-of-Proper-Waste-Management-How-Dumpster-Rentals-Can-Help-

In our day-to-day lives, the creation of waste is a certainty. In the home, it can build up over time to the point where getting rid of it requires a dumpster rental. In fact, the average American family creates 6,570 pounds of trash per year. Commercial projects involving construction often produce a significant amount of debris as well. Hiring a dumpster rental company to take care of your trash removal needs can alleviate the stress often accompanying these projects. We know that getting rid of trash and waste can be time-consuming. At Pack Mule, we help you take the guesswork out of where to properly dispose of your trash, junk, or whatever it may be.

Believe it or not, your home most likely contains a significant amount of what’s considered to be hazardous waste. The removal of such waste on commercial construction sites is essential as well. Construction projects often have trash and waste that can be categorized as dangerous or non-recyclable. Non-Recyclable waste, such as construction rubble, can be efficiently disposed of in a dumpster.

When improperly handled, hazardous waste can have disastrous effects on the environment. The EPA strongly recommends not pouring dangerous waste found in your home or commercial site down the drain, in storm sewers, or in the ground. 

Below are a few examples of hazardous waste. For a more comprehensive list, be sure to visit your state’s environmental protection agency’s website.

Common Household Hazardous Waste Materials

  • Paint (oil-based)/ Paint thinners
  • Ammonia/ Bleach/Chlorine
  • Fluorescent light bulbs
  • Computers and Computer Components
  • Motor Oil
  • Household Cleaners
  • Compressed gas tanks

Common Commercial Hazardous Waste Materials

  • Construction rubble
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Industrial Chemicals
  • Pesticides
  • Solvents
  • Retail Packaging
  • Demolition Waste

Did you know that proper waste management also significantly benefits the environment? It’s true! When hazardous materials are not correctly disposed of, they can contribute to the creation of water, soil, and air pollution. When water, soil, and air are contaminated with improperly handled waste, it endangers the well-being of water, marine life, and you. According to this report by the Ohio EPA, “In 2020, Ohio generated approximately 28.89 million tons of solid and excluded waste. This equates to a per capita generation rate of 13.53 pounds per person per day.” Proper waste management is crucial due to the sheer amount produced per day.

So what exactly does renting a dumpster do to positively impact the environment?

  • ● Protects Wildlife– A dumpster can help ensure hazardous materials go to the right place to be safely processed and prevents them from ending up in areas they shouldn’t be, such as waterways or illegal dumping grounds inhabited by wildlife.
  • ● Shrinks Carbon Footprint- Having a dumpster at your location saves you from the possibility of making multiple trips to the dump, often in a truck, and cuts down on CO2 emissions that create greenhouse gasses and ultimately harm the environment. So not only is it eco-friendly, but it’s also a convenient time-saver!
  • ● Prevents Waste Burning– Not only does burning trash release dangerous toxins into the air, but it can also put your home at risk for fire damage. This Ohio EPA article can fully explain the dangers of burning waste. When you rent a dumpster to get rid of your trash, you eliminate the possibility of it being burned.

Look No Further!! These guys went ABOVE and BEYOND when my family needed a dumpster quickly and on short notice. We were in town only for few days to help close my late Aunt and Uncles Estate and didn’t realize how much there was to dispose of and these guys REALLY came through for us. Their kindness, professionalism, and understanding made the daunting and emotional task of clearing out the house that was once full of love and memories a little easier. You can’t go wrong with choosing them.

I can’t say enough nice thing’s about this company. I completely underestimated the amount of time and dumpster space we’d need. They were very accommodating and went above and beyond to help us out when all of their dumpsters were booked before we were finished. They have the best rates and their customer service puts them far above the competition.

Rented a small dumpster from Pack Mule and I was very pleased. Because of the weekend rental, my 3 days turned into more at no additional cost to me. They were professional and friendly and we are planning to rent from them again very soon. Definitely can't beat their prices!

This company went above and beyond to answer all my questions and deliver high quality service! The gentleman who came out with the dumpster was so helpful in assisting me and had the job done in such a short amount of time! So grateful for quality service over quantity. The rates are so reasonable and the service is the best I've seen in years from any company. I cannot recommend Pack Mule to enough people!

Ordered a dumpster for my mom’s house in Springboro to help with clearing out a lot of odds and ends. Pack Mule was the cheapest option and their online scheduling made it easy to setup. The dumpster appeared relatively new and was in great shape. Dropped off and picked up as expected. Would recommend them.
