Here’s some frequently asked questions about your rental. Most of the following conditions are determined by the City of Regina transport, bylaw, and landfill policies. But if you have any doubts or questions please contact us and we’ll find you the solution or make our best efforts to accommodate.
Our starting rentals cover your first 7 days. When you are ready we must be notified for pickup. Unless otherwise quoted, your rental rate is $50 + GST per addional week. Monthly rates may be available. There are obviously no charges if pickup is delayed due to weather or landfill conditions.
For all-inclusive rentals we cover one load up to 3,300lbs (1.5 tons) for the 12 yard and 5,500lbs (2.5 tons) for the 24 yard. (More than any competitor.) Additional load weight will be charged at the city's current pro-rated fee of $85 per metric ton. Don't worry, we don't have penalties, markups, or fees on top of the city charges. You'll pay the exact same as if you took the extra stuff there yourself. Before loading ask us about cheaper recycling options for separate loads of shingles, drywall, concrete, dirt, rock, and wood.
The City of Regina restricts/penalizes hazardous materials, asbestos, freon, ballasts, bulbs, tires, untilled sod, unclean dirt, unclean concrete, 4+ mattresses, large logs, and mesh. See the city website for details. Loads in violation will be be returned or charged the City Landfill’s penalties. (Typically $250+ !)
Small brush & branches are fine at the landfill. But loads with large, mature trunks/branches greater than 2’ in diameter or length should be free from waste so they can be recycled at a much cheaper rate and avoid burial penalties at the city landfill.
Dirt is free at the landfill. To be free from landfill fees loads must be clean of non-dirt waste, hazardous contamination, rocks larger than a fist or sod. (If you have sod just rotor-till it into dirt.) Mixed/unclean loads will be charged at the landfill. (At least $85 per yard!) Loads must be level distribution and cannot exceed 6 yards/6 tons or we will not be able to physically pick up the bin weight. You will be responsible to remove overfill and may be charged $75 + GST if we have to abandon picking up your bin.
Concrete is free at the landfill. To be free from landfill fees loads must be clean of waste and rebar cannot protrude out greater than 2 feet. Mixed loads will be charged at the landfill. (At least $85 per yard!) Loads must be level distribution and cannot exceed 6 yards/6 tons or we will not be able to physically pick up the bin weight. You will be responsible to remove overfill and may be charged $75 + GST if we have to abandon picking up your bin.
You are responsible for where you select the bin placement and ground protection. Customer, City, emergency services, or landowner orders for relocation will be charged at $75 + GST. The same if we have to abandon delivery because the space wasn't ready. You are responsible to take precautions if you have concern for any potential ground damage from the 5 ton trucks & bins. Thick plywood usually does the trick for exposed aggregate, rubber, landscaping stones, or lawn care.
Loads must not exceed 6 tons or rim of bin for safe transportation. Rear doors must be able to fully close. You will be responsible to remove overfill and may be charged $75 + GST if we have to abandon picking up your bin.
Unless otherwise quoted, if you request your full bin to be replaced with an empty one you will be charged again and covered for a new 7 day rental period and landfill load.
