Bin There, Dump That solves haul-off problems

By Pamela A. Keene 
You can’t help but smile to yourself at the name of the company: Bin There, Dump That, a waste disposal company that specializes in roll-off dumpsters for residential service. The firm’s bright lime-green containers can solve problems from collecting move-out garbage to providing a repository for home-remodeling construction debris. 
Kevin and Jessica Stearns opened the East Metro Atlanta Area franchise of the national company about 20 months ago to serve northeast Georgia, including Hall and Forsyth counties and areas around Lake Lanier.
“Whether you’re cleaning out your garage or basement, remodeling a kitchen or bathroom  or just need a dumpster for a project, we can be there on the same day, as long as you call before 2 p.m.,” Stearns said. “And we show up with clean, nice dumpsters in a variety of sizes.” 
Dumpsters from 4- to 20-yards are typically placed in a driveway. The company puts protective boards beneath the dumpster to protect the concrete from breakage or cracking. Once the client has finished with the dumpster, the company hauls all the contents to the landfill. Staff from Bin There, Dump That even cleans up the site.
“We’ve seen some pretty nice stuff that people are getting rid of, including furniture, workout equipment and other things,” Stearns said. “But, as is our policy, everything that our clients put into the dumpsters is taken to the landfill.”
Stearns said the company focuses on customer service. The firm has a fleet of seven trucks and 100 dumpsters. The company has approximately 15 employees, including drivers, service people, office and sales staff. 
He said customers range from remodeling contractors to homeowners. “We have a number of roofing contractors and property management companies that use our services,” he said. “Our trucks are smaller, lighter and more maneuverable ... . And with same-day delivery and pick-up, we can help you get the job done.” 
Giving back to the community 
Each quarter Bin There, Dump That selects a charity to support This summer it provided dumpsters for the Lake Lanier Association’s 30th annual Shore Sweep. It has also donated 200 backpacks to children in Gwinnett County Schools and contributed to a homeless shelter that houses women with children. 
“Jessica and I actively seek out worthy charity partners,” he said. “It’s really important that we give back to the community. After all, we live here, and we do business here.” 
Kevin and Jessica are New York natives who most recently lived in Kenai, Alaska, where he was a roughneck on a drill rig. She’s a former licensed professional counselor. 
When they moved to Georgia, they decided to affiliate with Bin There, Dump That after his brother in Douglasville opened a Bin There, Dump That franchise in Douglasville.
The company has more than 100 locations across North America. For more info: Dumpsters can be booked from the home page.
