When it comes to the basics of renting a dumpster, there are a few things to consider. Primarily, you need to think about what goes in it, what doesn’t, if you have a secure place for your roll-off and what size fits your requirements. Let’s take a closer look.
- When should you rent a dumpster?
Rental dumpsters are useful to have when undertaking DIY projects around the home that will generate large amounts of debris and household waste. Home renovations, renovations and clean-outs can leave you with old and broken furniture, appliances, wood, metal or bricks that need disposal. Landscaping projects may require the removal of trees, gravel or other organic material. Moving homes, especially downsizing, can also reveal a lot of unwanted clothes, toys, and housewares. A rental dumpster can be incredibly helpful in all of these scenarios.
- What cannot be put in a rental dumpster?
Certain materials are unsuitable for disposal in a rental dumpster. These include:
- Electronics, such as computers, TVs, and cell phones
- Fuels such as diesel, oils, propane tanks, gas equipment
- Chemicals, such as poisons, pesticides, and paints (dry is fine)
- Batteries, tires, freon and asbestos
- Where should I put the rental dumpster?
To make it easy to move heavy debris into your rental dumpster, you’ll want to place it as near to the work site as possible. Usually, this means in your driveway or yard. However, the roll-off dumpster must be placed on a hard surface, as it may sink into or cause damage to a soft lawn. If this is not feasible, your next option is to keep your dumpster on the street which will require a permit first – so please make sure you have things situated before we deliver your roll-off rental.
- How big are rental dumpsters?
To keep things simple and streamlined, we offer two sizes of rental dumpsters suitable for most projects. The small provides 12 cubic yards at 4′ high x 7′ wide x 12′ long. Our large roll-off is 30 cubic yards, or 6′ high x 7′ wide x 22′ long.
