Avoid These Mistakes When renting a Dumpster in Port Charlotte, FL

#1 Dumpster Placement

Port Charlotte Dumpster Rental

The placement of the dumpster rental Port Charlotte FL is important.  Remember, you are going to be putting things into the dumpster so you don't want it too far away.  And, placing it at the end of the driveway makes it hard to see oncoming traffic and pedestrians when you are wanting to leave your driveway.  Our residential dumpsters are really nice as they are made to fit in the driveway with ease. We even put down protection for your driveway with each dumpster placement.  However, once placed you cannot move them easily. So, take some time and figure out a good placement. 

Be sure not to block yourself in when you have us place the dumpster as well.  And, the end of the dumpster does have a door. This door will swing open to allow you to place big and bulky items that are hard to get over the top.  You need to leave enough room for the door to swing open to allow you to get inside.

# 2 Avoid Hazardous Materials

There are certain things you cannot put into a dumpster or you will get additional costs.  The dumpster is a big bin that can fit all kinds of things in it. However, there are certain things that cannot be placed in our dumpsters. These are things such as:

        • propane tanks
        • batteries
        • fluorescent light bulbs
        • ammunition
        • leftover paint, paint cans, spray paint, paint thinners, varnish, and stains.
        • tires
        • motor oil and all car fluids
        • cleaning chemicals
        • aerosol cans
        • pesticides or all gardening fluids should be avoided

If you are not sure, it's probably best to not put it in the dumpster.  And, you certainly can always give us a call and ask. Check out our FAQ for any further information regarding what can  and can't be placed in our Tin Tipper Dumpsters.

#3 Avoid Slopes

When placing your dumpster rental in Port Charlotte FL you should look at the landscape of your driveway.  If you have a hefty slope, it might be wise to choose somewhere that doesn't. 

This doesn't take a genius to figure out.  If the bin in on a steep incline and you put a bunch of heavy things in it, it's going to slide.  Sliding out of control bins are dangerous and should be avoided. If you are not sure, just ask. We have worked with many clients and driveway hills.   There are some things that certainly can be done to level this off a bit.  

Be sure to keep it on your property and not in City Streets.  However, if you need to use the street, the bin can be there with prior authorization from Charlotte County or City of Punta Gorda.

How to remove rust spots from pavers

By dumpsterrentalswfl | August 12, 2019
Removing rust spots from a paver driveway! Stubborn rust stains on driveways can be quite the headache. My name is Kevin and I am the owner of Tin Tipper Dumpster Rental. We are a busy dumpster rental company that mainly services residential home in cape coral. We stay on top of our dumpster by preventing rust spots on our customers driveway, however sometimes an unforeseen rust stain pops up. While it is in our rental agreement that this isn't our responsibility, I take our customer service very seriously. I always try to assure that when our customers are done with the dumpster rental, we have given them the WOW factor. As I write this tutorial on remove rust stains, Tin Tipper is currently at a 5.0 review rating on Google My Business! I am writing this after having to take care of a customer due to a heavy stain caused by one of our new dumpster that had a pin hole in the front. Evapo-Rust from Nothern Tool I happened to be at Northern Tool and saw this product call Evapo-Rust. While this product is highly rated for tool and other metal item rut removal, it did not work on the paver driveway. I used this product straight out of the bottle and poured it onto the rust stain, I also used a metal brush to penetrate the product into the pavers. The end result from this product after 3 applications was only about a 30% rust removal. This bottle cost just under $10. This is our go to process for rust removal on paver driveway. Here is what you will need to remove the rust stain completely off of the driveway, all of these items can be purchased from Home Depot : Hard Bristle brush Bucket Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser CLR Calcium, Lime and Rust Remover Garden Hose with plenty of H2O! My first attempt at this I figured I would just blast the stain away with a pressure washer. The rust stains on the pavers weren't phased at all by that attempt. Leave it stored away and follow this next few steps. I went to Home Depot to purchase some oxalic acid, however no one in my area sold just the powder concentrate. This product is however available online : Click here to see the oxalic acid powder product.  Mix the bar keeper powder approximately 1 cup to 1 gallon of warm water. Grab the brush and really scrub the product into the pavers and the heavy concentration of rust areas. I also spread powder directly from the container over the harder areas. this may take several coats for optimal rust removal. Remember that pavers and concrete are extremely porous, chances are the rust spots are really work themselves into the area.  As you can see from the picture above the driveway is starting to look normal however rust spots are still visible and the end product is not truly acceptable. Rust removing product CLR : Calcium, Lime, and Rust Remover This product has been my go to end product for rust stains and spots on concrete and paver driveways. A 28oz bottle of this chemical will however set you back around $22. Due to price of this chemical, I like to remove as much as possible with Bar Keeper, which is a $2 product. Here is how I have found this product to work best for me. I do not dilute the product and pour it directly onto the heavy rust stained areas. The instruction on the product inform you that you should rinse off the liquid after 2 minutes. This in my opinion is way to short of a period and doesnt allow the chemical to penetrate the rust spots that have worked there way into the porous pavers. I usually leave the chemical on the rust stains for at least 20 minutes to 35 minutes. I will also lightly scrub the CLR product throughout the area to ensure complete rust stain coverage. While I did not take a video of this process, take a look at the following YouTube video.  Rust Stain / Spots are complete gone! This clean up took me just over an hour. In my opinion, I will do whatever it takes to keep my dumpster rental customer completly satisfied with our service. Below you will see the finished product which is a completely removed rust stain!
