News and trends about dumpster rentals, POD-like storage containers, and construction waste recycling around Appleton, Green Bay, and Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Most people are pretty unfamiliar with the restoration industry unless they or someone they know have been affected by things like fire, flood, mold, or storm damage and needed to rent a dumpster. Restoration companies work primarily with insurance companies, providing on-call assistance to those in need. There’s always work to be done regardless of the time of year, however “busy season” for this industry is typically the winter months, (when water pipes have the tendency to burst and fires start due to portable heaters.) As we all know, the weather in Northeast Wisconsin can be incredibly unpredictable, which causes a challenge when coordinating restoration efforts… And for us, the waste disposal!

There are a number of national franchises that you probably recognize by name in the restoration industry, but what you might not know is that many of them are privately owned. For example, Service Master is known for their residential and commercial cleaning and disaster recovery efforts. They have franchises located internationally and nationally (in all 50 states). ServiceMaster Specialty Restoration Services of Appleton/Green Bay is one of a group of seven or so that responds to national disasters. Regardless of what or where the need is, President Todd Frank is always ready on a moment’s notice to send personnel and equipment and get right down to work.
Some companies choose to specialize in certain aspects of restoration, (like water extraction, demolition, or fire cleanup efforts,) while others do it all. Regardless of the type of damage, many restoration jobs involve removing the property’s contents first, separating our the salvageable materials, and disposing/recycling the damaged items. This typically requires two different types of containers: construction dumpsters for waste management and portable storage containers for temporary storage.
City Disposal partners with many restoration companies in Northeast Wisconsin, providing the appropriate types, sizes, and numbers of temporary storage and waste containers for the job. Recently, our partners have been very pleased with our Logo Container program. (A Logo Container is a standard 20- or 30-yard shipping container branded with our partner’s company logo, contact information, and corporate colors... Essentially it’s a portable billboard!)
