Before you take delivery of your bin, do you best to clear a space on your driveway so that there is a flat area where the bin can be deposited during the rental period.  Remove and ice or snow and ensure there will be walking and working access around the bin so that you can safely fill it.

Colder temperatures bring with snow and ice, which can be slippery and hard to gain traction on when you walk or drive on affected areas. If these slippery areas are near your bin rental, you will want to clear any snow and salt the area to ensure no one slips as they load the bin.

Cold temperatures can also make it difficult to access the entryway into a rented bin, requiring more force to open it. Cover latches and fasteners to protect them from the cold. You might want to warm them if possible before use. Cold metal can be hard to handle.

Use gloves when handling a metal bin to avoid coming into contact with frozen steel. Injuries can occur if you expose bare skin to frozen metal.
