CLEAN UP OPTIONS AT YOUR HOME

Borden Big Boxes

Cleaning up after a garage sale or doing some spring cleaning? We have options to ease your efforts. Whether it be a large amount of trash or a smaller amount, we can accommodate it.

Borden Big Boxes are available for all of your home clean-out and construction needs. We have several sizes to meet your needs and ease your efforts. Consider how much room in a container that you may need. A full size pickup truck is approximately 2 cubic yards. How many pickup truck loads of waste do you have to dispose of?

Big Boxes are available in 2, 4 and 6 cubic yards.

Please speak to a Customer Support representative to help you determine the appropriate size container for your special project. (574) 293-5001 ext. 570

Rolloff Containers

If you are dealing with a larger project such as a remodel or a complete clean out, a rolloff container will suit your needs. We offer a number of sizes to fit your project. Talk with a Customer Support representative to help you select the most effective size.

EVENT BOXES

Event boxes are a great way to collect trash or recycling at a special event. Boxes are constructed of corrugated cardboard and hold approximately 30 gallons. Each box comes with 2 liners so bags can be switched out for multiple use.

For a larger event, event boxes will complement a larger disposal option such as a temporary Borden Big Box or a rolloff container. Collect waste and recycling in each event box and place bags into the larger container.

Whether the event is a graduation or a corporate gathering, event boxes will provide an esthetic waste or recycling collection solution. Consult a Customer Support representative at (800) 634–4626 ext. 570 for service options.
