The many ways a Load-n-Lift rental can help you this spring.

Load-n-Lift is a Trenton based company that specialises in rubbish removal and provides a valuable service for individual homeowners, independent contractors, and small businesses alike. Although dumpster or bin rentals may seem like an unlikely asset, several ways having a convenient and reliable rubbish removal service can make your project much more manageable.

  • Construction, Maintenance, and Renovation

 Spring is a popular time to start home renovation projects or repair damage that may have occurred in the past, and Load-n-Lift’s year-round service is always ready to accommodate your needs. Having an onsite dumpster makes all home construction projects simpler, providing a secure method to dispose of debris from re-shingling and roofing repairs, drywall, kitchen and bathroom tiling and scraps, and many other kinds of construction debris. Load-n-Lift bins and dumpsters can also be used for smaller projects such as spring cleaning and getting rid of large or heavy objects.

  • Personal Lawn and Garden Care

High-quality soil and mulch are essential parts of a gardener’s toolkit. They can help prevent erosion, aid in water retention, and inhibit weed growth from improving the overall health of a lawn or garden. However, sometimes a gardener needs to store mulch or soil to use later. Load-n-Lift offers bin rentals of varying size, so you can be sure to find one to accommodate your needs. Aspiring and veteran gardeners alike often find these containers perfect for storing mulch or soil safely and conveniently.

  • Landscaping      

Whenever you are doing landscaping work, whether on your own home or as a contractor, there are almost always materials to haul away.Onsite disposal can make the process faster and cleaner for the homeowner. For a contractor, this offers a unique way to minimise costs like gas and time spent travelling back and forth from a job site to a dumpsite. Load-n-Lift offers bins with a ground level entry for easy access and uses a special hydraulic lifting system that eliminates the risk of dragging the bin, thus preventing a lawn from being damaged.

  • Events, Functions, and Parties

Any significant function or gathering is sure to create waste, and Load-n-Lift bins are the perfect way of ensuring that waste is disposed of quickly and tidily.  Load-n-Lift trucks can carefully manoeuvre into tight areas that others cannot, and thus are ideal for your next event.

Load-n-Lift’s friendly and accommodating staff are happy to help you with your next project, no matter the size.

How to prep for a Load N Lift bin

When it comes to Load N Lift bins, one of the most common questions we get is how to prep for the bin to arrive. So, we thought it was about time to tackle this question head-on and put pen to paper. Thus, here is how to prep for a Load N Lift bin!

Remember, you need to walk to the bin

When it comes to where to drop the bin off, we are often dealing with tight residential areas. If you are looking to utilise a bin, take some to consider where the work is being done, and where you are going to be able to haul the debris. For instance, if you are doing work on the east side of the home, it would not make much sense to put the bin on the west side of the property, as that is merely adding additional work to dump the debris. Instead, plan and make sure that the bin is dropped in the ideal location for your project.

Leave some space around the bin

Although we can work in tight spaces, it might be worth a thought to consider leaving some space around the bin. You will have to work in the area and having access to all four sides might be beneficial in moving forward.

Clear the space

Load N Lift bins are delivered by a large truck that will need some room to work. Although our drivers are some of the best in the business, we need the space that the bin will be dropped off at clear of any debris or other things. If we are dropping it on your driveway, please ensure that there are no vehicles blocking the way and provide our drivers with a bit of space to move around. Ideally, if you could remove cars from the driveway for the drop-off, it would undoubtedly make our lives a little easier!

Lawn or Driveway?

Naturally, this will depend on your specific situation, but for the team at Load N Lift, it does not matter. Load N Lift bins are bulky metal bins and can leave some damage if left for a long time to a lawn. If you are planning a long-term project, the driveway might be better, but if you are doing work in the winter, then either the lawn or the driveway will do. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our team, and we can provide some guidance for you.

If you are considering a Load N Lift bin, why not call the team at Load N Lift and inquiry. We have been providing our community with mobile bins for years and are here to answer any questions you may have!

Winter Bin Rental Tips


When you are looking to rent a bin in the winter, there are always a few things that you have to consider. We want to make sure that your home and your property is safe during the process, and no matter the size of the bin you are renting, the team at Load N Lift is here for you! Here are just a few of our top tips to remember when you are working with a Load N Lift bin during the winter here in Ontario.

Clear a Space

Before your bin arrives, it is essential that you clear the driveway to create some space for the bin to be dropped off. You want to consider making the space clear of both ice and snow, and creating either walkway to and from, or clearing the surrounding space to create a safe work environment for anyone filling the bin. If it does snow, make sure to shovel and toss down some salt to give you some grip for when you are tossing stuff in your Load N Life bin.

Protect the bin

Once the bin has been delivered, you should look to protect the various parts of the bin from the cold. This means covering the latches and fasteners if that is the style you have chosen, and you may want to warm them up before you use the mechanisms. Plus, be prepared to deal with cold metal, and it will undoubtedly be cold, especially in sub-zero temperatures!

Cover the bin

No matter if you have filled the bin, or have just started the project, you should look to cover the bin with a tarp. This will allow you to avoid having excess snow or ice build-up in the bin and ensures that your bin will be in good shape moving forward. A tarp and a rope should be enough, and make sure to tighten and secure the tarp in case the wind starts to pick up!

Use Gloves

If you are working outside for any significant amount of time, especially with a Load N Lift bin, then you should look to utilise gloves. Gloves will not only help protect you from the elements, but it will also help limit the effects of the cold steel on your hands, especially on child days. We want to avoid injuries, and injuries can certainly occur if you expose bare skin to frozen metal.

Winter bin rentals are always a good idea, but you have to prep your space and yourself for working in the elements. If you are interested in a winter bin rental contact the team at Load N Lift today and see how our bins can help with your next big project!

Four ways to enjoy your garden longer

We all have had a long hard winter, and spring and summer are meant for you to enjoy your garden for as long as possible. However, for many of us, this means that we need to do some work during the year to maintain and monitor how the plants are doing! In this blog, we are going to look at five ways that will ensure that you can enjoy your garden for just a little bit longer this season.

Watering

It might seem like a simple thing, but you would be surprised at how many people underwater, or overwater their plants! You can tell if you are overwatering If you plant soil is soaked, or if you notice mould or moss growing on the container. If you are underwatering, you will see rock hard soil and wilted flowers. Proper watering will go a long way to ensuring your garden lasts!

Mulch

Laying down a layer of mulch does wonders for a garden, and proper mulching can help ensure your garden will last. Mulch helps with the following things:

Improves soil retention

Regulates soil temperature

Prevents soil erosion from wind and rain

Reduces weed growth

Mulch can be made up of practically any organic material, and store-bought mulch is also a great option if you do not want to make your own.

Maintenance

When you consider the real key to enjoying your garden longer, it comes down to maintenance. This means that a successful garden will have routine weeding and natural controls for the prevention of weeds. As well, you will need to feed your soil with manure and mulch monthly to encourage new growth and strengthening of old growth. Finally, you will need to learn to disinfect your tools before starting work to prevent soil transfer, and other biomasses infecting different parts of your garden.

Rent a bin from Load N Lift

Whether it is your first mulch of the season, or need a bigger green bin during maintenance, Load N Lift makes it easy to ensure your garden lasts. With our simple to use bins, you will be able to secure mulch, or dirt safely, and when you are ready, our truck can take the load away, that simple.

The five keys to getting your grass back to normal

With the last remnants of winter starting to melt away, the time is right for you to start looking at your grass. You might notice some patches or even some bare spots, and if that is so, you need to start looking at reseeding options. In this blog, we are going to look at the five keys to get your grass back to normal!

1. Rake

When you are looking to reseed, one of the best things you can do is to start anew. This is why we always suggest raking any dead grass, leaves or debris off of the area you are looking to reseed. This will give your lawn the ability to get much-needed sunlight and moisture to spur on growing.

2. Rent a Load N Lift Bin

If you are starting to wonder where you are going to put the compost and new topsoil for your reseeding mission, skip the tarp on the driveway and rent a Load N Lift Bin. With easy access and accessible storage, the bins at Load N Lift are ideal for helping clients with reseeding.

3. Level your compost

As grass seed needs some help to grow, compost is the ideal base layer when laying seed. Spread 2 to 3 inches of compost, or 5-7 cm, of compost over the area, and smooth with a back of a rake. You want to ensure that the entire area is covered and level with the surrounding soil.

4. Mix the seed with equal parts sand

One of the keys to growing grass on the Canadian Shield is sand. It might be surprising, but equal parts of sand and seed will do wonders on your reseeding project. The moisture from the sand will help speed up the germination process of the seeds and will help keep the seeds in place during windy days. Make sure to buy wetter sand, as playground sand or other coarse sands are not great for this job.

5. Keep the area moist, but not wet

Finally, it would help if you kept the area that you are trying to grow moist, but not soggy. Grass seed needs to be germinated regularly, but not so much that they drown. The rule of thumb is to run a fine spray of water two or three times during the day, and that should be enough to spur on growth.

Growing grass is an art, and to help you become a master, the team at Load N Lift here to help you with your outside chores. Call our team today, and find out how a Load N Lift can help your next project!
