June – Michael Vaden

Gotta Go Dumpster Service’s driver for the month of June is Michael Vaden. Michael is originally from Phoenix, Arizona. In 2013, Michael moved to Jeffersonville with his wife, Cerise. They have two boys, Dylan who is five and Derek who is three. Michael obtained his CDL Class A in 2014 and has been driving an array of commercial vehicles since then. He has been employed with Gotta Go Dumpster Service for almost a year. Before joining the team, Michael was previously employed by Rich Trucking, which was bought out by Gotta Go Dumpster Service in the summer of 2016. Before ultimately deciding to work with Gotta Go Dumpster Service, Michael was faced with many different opportunities. He decided to be a part of the Gotta Go team because it fit his needs as a driver and a family man. He is able to be home in the evenings and watch his kids grow up. Michael stated, “I like working for Gotta Go Dumpster Service because it is not just a monotonous driving job.” He is provided with the opportunity to drive a variety of vehicles and he has different job types that vary day to day. “I sure do love flatbeds,” Michael said.

Working with Gotta Go Dumpster Service, Michael feels valued as an employee because he is able to voice his concerns and opinions candidly and he knows that it will always be taken into consideration. He feels good about the work that he does because most of the stuff that he hauls gets recycled, which in turn is good for the Earth. Michael’s inspiration to succeed is to make it home each night by driving safely and efficiently. Michael describes Gotta Go Dumpster Service as being a laid-back, family-oriented company that strives for success. When faced with a challenge at work, he uses all of his experience and tools that he is given by the company to get the job done right the first time. He said, “If all else fails, call your dispatcher!”

Thanks for the hard work and dedication to Gotta Go, Michael. You are an asset to our team. Congratulations on winning the June employee of the Month.

Tips on Renting a Dumpster in New Albany, Indiana

The process: From quote to pickup

  1. How big of a dumpster do I need? You typically see dumpster sizes labeled as 10-yard, 15-yard, 20-yard, 30-yard, and 40-yard. These numbers can be confusing. So let us take a look at what the sizes actually represent.
    • Dumpsters are measured in cubic yards. Cubic yards are a measure of volume.
    • One cubic yard is 3’x3’x3′.
    • There are 27 cubic ft in a cubic yard.
    • A full size pickup truck bed can hold roughly 2.5 cubic yards of material.
    • So a 10 yard dumpster can hold 10 cubic yards, or roughly 4 pickup truck loads of material.
    • A 20 yard dumpster can hold 20 cubic yards of material or 8 pickup truck load, and so on.
    • Measure your area to get an idea of its size. Length x width x height.  In feet.
    • Take your measurement that you got from Length x Width x Height (in feet) and divide by 27. This will give you your cubic yards.
  2.  Think about the Weight. Each dumpster size also holds a specific amount of weight.  One of the only ways to charged extra from Gotta Go is by going over the weight limit for the dumpster size. So you must take weight into mind when ordering a dumpster. Let’s say you have concrete that measures out to be 10 cubic yards of material. You might think that this will fit in a 10-yard dumpster. But a 10 yard can only handle 1.5 tons of trash or debris. 10 yards of concrete would definitely be over that weight and you would be billed for every extra ton of weight over the initial 1.5 tons. So make sure your weight is figured in as well as size.
  3. Get a Quote for each size. Once you have figured out the size you need, you can either call us at 812-282-9886 or visit our dumpster quote form and submit it directly to us. The form gives us all the information we need to give you an accurate quote.
  4. Schedule a Delivery. If you approve of our prices, you can either setup a delivery by phone when you get a quote, or you can schedule a dumpster delivery through our online form. Please give us a few days notice so we can schedule you in.
  5. Call for Pickup. Dumpsters are rented on a 7 day period. So you have 7 days to fill your dumpster with no extra charges. If you keep your rental dumpster longer than 7 days, we charge $5 a day for every day after the initial 7 days. We do not automatically pickup your dumpster after 7 days, either. Please give us a call to schedule your pickup.

What can’t I throw in a dumpster?

Prohibited dumpster items

Renting a dumpster for your home or business is an easy process. You call us, we deliver the dumpster you ordered, you fill it up with items you no longer want and we pick it up. BAM! It is that easy. Your space is now clear and all your discarded items have gone to trash heaven.

However, trash heaven is a part of our environment and we have to respect it by keeping potentially harmful items from being discarded of improperly in landfills. This is why dumpster companies and sanitation services do not allow harmful items to be thrown away in their trash bins. These items need to be disposed of properly, complying with state and federal laws.

Since each dumpster company has their own rules and regulations for what they will and will not take, ask your dumpster company before you rent to learn what materials they will not accept.

Generally speaking, it is common that the following items won’t be accepted by your dumpster company:

  • Heavy items
  • Chemicals
  • Batteries
  • Computers, Monitors and TVs
  • Paints and solvents
  • 55 Gallon Drums
  • Appliances
  • Pesticides
  • Oil and Oil Filters
  • Tires
  • Propane tanks
  • Railroad ties
  • Toxic, flammable or Hazardous materials

Let’s take a look at why these items aren’t allowed to be dumped in your dumpster.

Heavy items

Heavy items ARE allowed. We just want customers to be aware that a dumpster rental is based on weight. If you exceed the weight limit for the size dumpster you rented, you will be charged for the extra weight. Most customers believe they can fill the dumpster up as much as they want as long as all the trash fits in the dumpster.

For example, our 30-yard roll off dumpster can be filled with up to 4 tons of trash and debris. Even though 4 tons is a lot of weight, adding large pieces of concrete or asphalt from a driveway removal will make you reach your 4-ton limit in no time. Even though the dumpster is only halfway full, you could already be at your 4-ton limit. Be mindful of the weight you are acquiring in the dumpster as you load it to avoid an overweight charge.

Chemicals

Some chemicals that can’t be thrown away include pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, solvents and strong cleaners. These items are not allowed to be placed in your rental dumpster or in your curbside garbage collection due to the potential contamination at the landfill and contact with employees. These chemicals should always be handled with extreme care to keep your family and environment safe.

Also known as Hazardous Household Materials, these can typically be dropped off at a local recycling facility. To find out where you can drop off your items, visit search.earth911.com.

Batteries

Whether you are trying to get rid of a car battery or just a box full of D batteries, they can not be placed in a dumpster or your local curbside trash collection. This is because they still contain large amounts of cadmium, mercury, and lead inside of them. Properly disposing of batteries is import to protect our environment.

The good news is, most large automotive batteries can be sold to recycling companies for money. Simply find a local recycling center that takes them and drop your battery off.

Small batteries can be recycled at places like Best Buy and other local electronics stores. Or visit recyclenation.com to find a store near you.

Electronic waste or eWaste

TVs, computers and other electronics are not allowed in dumpsters. This is due to the large amounts of nickel, cadmium, and mercury present in electronic devices. The great news is that there are many safe places where you can dispose of your electronic waste for free. Your county government should have a list of drop off places. To search for your local drop off place, visit search.earth911.com

Paints and solvents

Oil based paints, thinners, varnish, strippers and stains can not be placed in dumpsters. These items have to be disposed of properly to prevent them from contaminating landfills and possibly water supplies. Again, your local government should have a drop off point for these items.

Not all paints are hazardous. A water-based paint can be left open to dry out. For large amounts of water-based paints, stir in an absorbent such as kitty litter, sand or sawdust to help speed up the drying process.

Appliances

Refrigerators and freezers can not be thrown into dumpsters. They contain refrigerants, oils and other products that, by federal law, must be recovered. The best option for refrigerators and freezers is to recycle them. They contain a lot of steel and other materials that can be recycled for money. Instead of spending money to get rid of them, recycle them at your local recycling center and make money.

Tires

Tires are always a sore subject. They are not allowed in roll off dumpsters or in curbside trash pickup and most people do not know where or how to dispose of them. Tires do not belong in a landfill and should be dropped off at your counties designated area. Nowadays, tires are recycled into mulch and other rubber products. Visit search.earth911.com to find out where your county drop-off point is.

Oil and Automotive fluids

Automobiles require several different fluids to keep them running at peak performance. However, most of these fluids need to be disposed of in the proper manner. From Antifreeze to transmission fluid to power steering fluid, find your counties designated drop-off point and make sure they are properly disposed of. No oils or automotive fluids are allowed in dumpsters.

Not being able to throw away everything into your dumpster can be annoying, but there are usually dedicated places in every county to recycle these restricted items. If there are any items not on this list that you are concerned about throwing into your rented dumpster, contact the dumpster company and they will be able to further assist you on their procedures.

Renting a dumpster comes with a great deal of responsibility, so please be sure to take care of your environment by properly disposing of items safely and properly. Remember to recycle any item that you can to keep it out of the landfill and help our environment.
