Dumpster Rental Tips For A Successful And Efficient Cleanup

Posted on: 17 November 2021

Waste cleanup, demolition of structures, and other types of disposal and removal projects in your home and around your yard are essential to keep your property in a good and clean condition. Excess trash and debris on your property promote pest infestations and can pose a liability risk of injury to you and anyone visiting your property, so a good disposal plan is always recommended when you need to clean up. The following provides you with some tips to help you rent a dumpster for your waste removal project.

Evaluate Your Waste

Before you rent a dumpster, it is beneficial to evaluate what type of waste you will be disposing of so you can choose the best fit in disposal services. A waste audit from your disposal service company is a great way to do this, as they can recommend the right size of dumpster and the appropriate disposal services for the type of waste you need to dispose of. 

There are several types of waste you may be dealing with at your property, such as construction waste, demolition waste, concrete and asphalt pavement waste, hazardous materials, and recyclable materials. If, for example, you are demoing a concrete slab and an old outdoor shed, you can find better options to dispose of the concrete waste materials and materials from the outbuilding, such as aluminum, wood, or glass windows that are still intact. You may be able to dispose of the concrete with a concrete recycling company, where the concrete can be reused in new concrete mixtures or used in construction as a fill product.

You should also look at whether you need to dispose of old appliances, as some of them can be recycled or reused or should be properly disposed of so they don't harm the environment. Refrigerators and some other equipment can contain Freon, which is illegal to dump into a landfill, so you need to contact your dumpster service professional for recommendations for proper disposal.

Look For the Best Dumpster Option

You can rent a dumpster in one of many different sizes, which are based on the dumpster rental company and their availability. So if you are planning a cleanup project for the weekend or a full week of home renovations, be sure to schedule it as soon as you know your project's dates. And look to rent the appropriately sized unit for your needs. 

You can find a dumpster rental that has a side access hatch to easily fill it for maximum space utilization. Ask about a dumpster rental's weight limits and if you will be only charged for the amount of waste you load into it. Or you can rent a medium-sized dumpster and have it emptied and returned back to your property for continued use.
