Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store. Check out this website to find articles that might help you to keep your business cleaner.

Preparing Your Site For A Roll-Off Dumpster Arrival

by Lee Porter

The more prepared you are for a dumpster roll-off, the easier that the process will be. The first thing you should do is contact the dumpster roll-off service to find out if there are any ways you can make the process easier. However, there are several common things you can usually do. 

Communicate with the Roll-Off Company

A roll-off dumpster rental involves contacting a dumpster roll-off company by phone. Bring up the location where you would like the roll-off dumpster to be placed. The dumpster roll-off company will help you determine if that location is viable. For example, it may be more difficult to place a dumpster in your backyard.

Beware of Certain Locations

Certain locations are not recommended for a roll-off dumpster. For example, a roll-off dumpster right roll down a steep hill. If you will be placing the dumpster on the side of a city street, you might need to obtain a dumpster permit first. Also, the truck might become stuck if it tries to place a roll-off dumpster on a soft or sandy surface. The best location for a dumpster is a flat, hard, and level surface. This can include your driveway, a parking lot, or a hard-packed surface of dirt. 

Clear Away Obstacles

Move all objects out of the way that might interfere with the dumpster delivery. For example, you will want to move any cars, garbage, kids' toys, or debris. Make sure that the area where the dumpster will be delivered is free from electrical wires or tree branches. 

Use Plywood

If you are concerned about the ground underneath the dumpster becoming damaged, you will want to lay down plywood to protect the area. The plywood will be sacrificial because it will be damaged by the dumpster being placed on top of it, so keep this in mind. 

Mark the Area

Mark the area where you want the dumpster delivered so that it's easier for the dumpster delivery service to do its job. This can be done with the plywood, and you can also lay tape and use stakes to make the drop-off area easier to see.

Make sure the lawn or curb does not have any obstacles. Talk to your neighbors so they know where the dumpster will go so that they won't accidentally block it. For example, they might park vehicles in a location that could block the dumpster. But with the right communication, you can avoid these issues.
