When to Rent a Dumpster
Dumpsters can be rented for just about any reason. Some of the top reasons to rent a short-term dumpster include the following.
New Construction or Additions
Construction creates a ton of waste that all needs to be removed from the property. Whether it’s an entirely new building or an add-on to the home, renting a dumpster to control and remove waste is a good idea.
Renovations can create a lot of waste between packaging for new items and the disposal of anything being removed or replaced. Using dumpster rentals provides the opportunity to get everything out of the house quickly and have it all removed when the project is done.
When the landscaping needs an overhaul, rent a dumpster to make the job easier. The dumpster can hold all of the landscaping debris that’s being removed as well as waste like pots or pallets from anything new that will be planted.
Time to declutter and work on minimizing belongings? Renting a dumpster service makes this easy. Anything that’s no longer needed can be tossed in the dumpster to be removed from the property.
Ready to Move
The more belongings someone has, the more expensive it will be to move. Plus, a lot of things may just not be needed any longer. Using a dumpster allows the homeowner to get rid of anything they don’t want anymore, reducing the cost of the move.
At least yearly, it may be a good idea to do a neighborhood cleanup. This can involve tossing anything that’s not needed, restoring the landscaping, and more. Have a dumpster in place for everyone to toss things they no longer need, keeping it from becoming an eyesore.
How Long to Rent a Dumpster
Dumpsters can be short-term or long-term rentals, depending on the situation. Businesses, for instance, will often opt for a long-term rental. With this, the dumpster is emptied regularly and ready for use again but does stay in place as long as it’s needed. For smaller or one-off projects, roll-off dumpster rentals are a better idea. The dumpster is delivered to the location and left in place. When it’s done, usually after a week or two, the dumpster is picked up and removed from the property with all of the waste. This makes it easy to get rid of a lot of waste quickly, and the rental period can depend on the project.
What Size to Rent?
Before looking for a dumpster rental near me, it’s important to consider the different sizes available. For roll-off dumpsters, sizes generally range from 10 yards to 40 yards. For smaller projects, a 10-yard dumpster may be sufficient. It holds around the same amount as four pickup loads. For the biggest projects, like major renovations, a 40-yard dumpster may be a better idea as it holds about the same amount as 16 pickup loads. A representative can discuss the project at hand and make a suggestion for the right size to rent for those who may be unsure what will work best in their situation.
Some Items are Restricted
Almost anything can be put in the dumpster, but it is important to know that some items are restricted. Car batteries, food waste, some lightbulbs, hot water tanks, inks and resins, household cleaners, paint, and tires are some of the items that cannot be placed in the dumpster. Another method of junk removal is needed to handle these types of items. Along with this, hazardous waste cannot be placed in a dumpster. Hazardous waste includes flammable or ignitable waste, corrosive waste, reactive waste, toxic waste, and anything that’s biohazardous or infectious.
Permits or Permission for a Dumpster
In many locations, if the roll off dumpster will be placed on a city or county-owned street, a permit is needed. These are usually simple to apply for and receive. If the dumpster is to be placed on private property, a permit may not be needed. It is a good idea to check with local officials before renting in case a permit is needed. If the dumpster is rented by a homeowner who lives in a neighborhood with a homeowners association, permission from the HOA may be required before the dumpster is rented. Obviously HOA's are very motivated when it comes to junk removal. Check the HOA governing documents or ask an HOA representative to find out if permission is needed before renting the dumpster to avoid potential fines.
The Cost of Dumpster Rentals
Before a project begins, the dumpster rental prices may be a concern. Prices can vary based on the type of dumpster and the amount of time it is needed. Dumpsters can also be more expensive to rent if they are emptied and replaced regularly. It is a good idea to get a quote before renting a dumpster to understand the price. Be aware that placing prohibited items in the dumpster can lead to additional costs at the end of the rental. A representative can provide a quote or information on additional costs that can be incurred during the rental.
If you’re planning a large project like a renovation or neighborhood cleanup, handling the waste created may be difficult to do without help.
