Burns expertly provides two primary ways to recover and recycle the waste from your job site:
Burns offers an array of containers and dumpsters in 10, 20 & 30 cubic yard sizes. We can even fulfill unique job requirements, whether you have extraordinary volume needs or difficult site conditions. We also have a selection of smaller containers on dollies, which allow for the use of containers in very tight conditions, where a standard dumpster might not be viable. Consult with us and we will custom-fit a solution for you. Call 215-324-6377 x214 for details.
Our two LEED APs on staff can guide you on earth-friendly disposal practices and provide you with Material Recovery reports upon request. Call 215-324-6377 x208 for details.
No matter what container service you choose, you must prep your site appropriately and comply with permitting requirements.
The City of Philadelphia requires the property owner to have an Equipment Placement application, which enables the holder to place the container on the street or pavement. This permit is necessary because containers will often block the public right-of-way. The property owner is also responsible for keeping the dumpster covered when not in use, keeping the surrounding area clean and remedying odor issues.
Wood planks must be placed under the wheel of the container to prevent damage to driveway or paved surfaces. Placing containers on grass or soft surfaces will cause damage to those surfaces. As the customer, you are ultimately responsible for the placement and removal of the dumpster and any damage incurred during the normal scope of work.
