4 Do's & Don'ts When Preparing for Dumpster Delivery, Kerrville, Texas

Whether you have a renovation project on the horizon or simply want to declutter your home, dumpster rentals will make it easy to remove construction materials and unwanted items from your property. However, while the provider will take care of both delivery and pick-up, there are ways to prepare for the container’s arrival. The guide below offers advice for how to make the process as smooth as possible.


Create enough space.

Decide where you want your dumpster rental to sit. Ideally, it should be close enough to your project that tossing items is convenient. However, you might have to sacrifice this in favor of an area with more space, both for the roll-off container and for its delivery vehicle to navigate. Repark your cars if necessary.

Coordinate a delivery date.

Set up a delivery date and time with your dumpster rental company, and try to be home when they arrive. This will ensure that your roll-off container winds up in the proper place and makes troubleshooting any issues much easier.


Forget your landscaping.

Discard the wrong items.

As a general rule, you may use a dumpster to safely discard most household items. Feel free to fill them with demolition materials, such as flooring, roofing, siding, and lumber. However, you should avoid putting electronic devices, wet paint, and asbestos into these containers, as these may harm the environment and result in a fee from the rental company.
