Tips For Renting A Construction Dumpster

Construction & Contractors Blog

When you take on a remodeling project, it is easy to get caught up in details such as whether to use quartz or granite countertops. Something that you can easily overlook is what to do with the debris that is generated while you are doing your project. If you just throw old fridges, drywall, and other junk out in your yard, it can kill your grass and create an eyesore that neighbors may complain about. Thus, you need a better option. And this is where renting a construction dumpster comes into play. 

Sizes

The first thing to know is that there are different sizes of dumpsters, and bigger is not always better. Renting a bigger dumpster will cost you more money, and if you don't end up using all of the space, then you're just wasting your money. Even a 20-yard dumpster can handle tons of waste. On the other hand, if you rent a small dumpster and end up filling it up, then you will need to call the waste disposal company to pick up the full dumpster and drop off a new one. Thus, you need to get a solid estimate of how much waste you will generate so you can make sure you get the right size of dumpster.

One Man's Waste Is Another Man's Restricted Waste

When you rent a construction dumpster, you may think that any waste you generate is fine to throw into your dumpster, but this is not necessarily true. Some waste management companies will have regulations on what type of garbage you can throw in their dumpsters. For example, you should not throw hazardous waste such as fluorescent lightbulbs, paint, stain, batteries, or oils into your dumpster. If you do throw restricted waste into your dumpster, you may have to pay a fine. Thus, you will need to check with the waste disposal company you rent from to see what restrictions you have, and then make sure that you abide by them. 

The experience of renting a dumpster should be as simple as calling a disposal management company and making arrangements. The company will drop it off at your house, where it will stay until you are done with it. Then you call the company to have them pick it up. If you do a little bit of research before you make the call to rent a dumpster, you should be able to avoid headaches.
