Having a dumpster on your property can help you efficiently remove junk and debris from projects such as renovations, buildouts, and decluttering. If you have never explored dumpster rentals but need one for an upcoming job, you may have a few questions. Here are answers and basic facts to consider.
The FAQ of Dumpster Rentals
What Can Be Tossed in a Dumpster?
For most dumpster rental companies, general waste is acceptable in the bin. This means household items, construction debris, concrete, soil, and landscaping remnants like stumps, twigs, and brush. Furniture can also be included (except for mattresses) as well as clean debris, like wood, plaster, and tiles.
Is Anything Prohibited?
Chemicals, food, and electronics, such as computer equipment and televisions, cannot be placed in a dumpster rental. Appliances, asbestos, batteries, paints, and solvents are also prohibited and must follow your area’s rules for safe disposal or recycling. Finally, bricks and concrete covered in dirt, mattresses, insulation material, gas bottles, cleaners, and anything else that can be considered hazardous to the environment are not allowed. As most of these items are prohibited please discuss these items with your dumpster consultant on how to dispose of them properly.
How Far in Advance Do You Need to Rent a Dumpster?
Most dumpster rental places require at least 24-hours notice to secure a bin, but it is always best to give as much notice as possible. Be conscious of weekends; some companies do not offer weekend deliveries. Also, if you want a dumpster for Monday, try to give one or two days’ notice the week before, not including Saturday and Sunday, to ensure a timely delivery.
How Do You Determine the Dumpster Size Needed?
Different projects require different size dumpsters. Keep in mind that dumpsters cannot be overfilled and must remain flush with the top so that debris is safely inside during transport. Dumpsters are typically measured in cubic yards, which means one cubic yard is equal to one yard long by one yard wide and one yard high. If you aren’t sure what you need, contact your dumpster rental customer service representative for help or look online for diagrams of what will fit in each size.
Will the Driveway Get Ruined by the Dumpster?
Many homeowners are concerned that dumpsters will tear up driveway paving. Some companies will lay down boards before setting a bin in place. Ask what your rental company will do to keep your property safe.
