Blue Box Dumpster Helps with Train Yard Clean Up

The office staff at Blue Box Rentals recently received a call from a train yard director in Berkeley Springs, WV. He was in need of a dumpster rental that would be the perfect size to handle the debris he wanted cleaned up in the yard and hauled away. The staff was happy to accommodate and quickly delivered the roll off to the yard. After a couple days, the work was done; the dumpster was taken to the landfill; and the train yard director was happy. Another satisfied Blue Box Rental customer! 🙂

Happy New Year 2016!

Everyone at Blue Box Rentals hopes and prays for a great start to 2016 and that everyone in the Hagerstown/Washington County, MD area has a happy new year. If your new year’s resolution includes anything that makes a BIG mess, Blue Box would love to help out and make your life a little easier during your planned project. Whether it is a construction project or a major spring cleaning that includes a large load to go to the local landfill/dump, we want to be a part of the planning. While you are thinking about how we can help you in 2016, enjoy some interesting facts about New Year’s Celebrations. The first New Year was celebrated 4,000 years by the ancient Babylonians. More vehicles are stolen on New Year’s Day than any other holiday. The top three places in the U.S. to celebrate New Year’s Eve are Las Vegas, Disney World and New York City. In Italy, people wear red underwear on New Year’s Day to bring good luck all year long. In Colombia, Cuba and Puerto Rico, some families stuff a large doll, which is called Mr. Old Year, with memories from the past year. They also dress him in clothes from the outgoing year. At midnight, he is set ablaze, thus burning away the bad memories. The traditional New Year’s song, “Auld Lang Syne,” means, “times gone by.”
