Do's & Don'ts of Picking Roll-Off Dumpster Rentals, Franklin, Connecticut

Many home projects, such as remodeling, create a lot of debris that can clutter your property. Roll-off dumpster rentals are a wise option for debris removal for projects that are expected to produce enough waste that can’t be reasonably handled on your own. Here are some tips on what you should and shouldn’t do when renting a roll-off dumpster for your next project.


Assess the project.

Roll-off dumpsters come in a variety of different sizes, depending on how much debris your project is expected to produce. Assess the scope of your project in advance, so you ensure you’re renting a roll-off dumpster that is large enough to accommodate your needs. Larger renovations or furniture removal will require a large container, whereas smaller projects such as yard cleanup may only need a small dumpster.

Rent a container early.

Rent a container early to ensure that you have the right size dumpster for your project. Dumpster rental companies have a limited supply of dumpsters, and planning ahead will ensure that you have a dumpster on-site when you start your project. Generally, call for roll-off dumpster rentals at least a week in advance.


Fill the dumpster to the brim.

Roll-Off Dumpster RentalsRemoval services have height and weight limits when it comes to removing your dumpster. Don’t fill your dumpster to the brim before scheduling a pickup. Instead, when your trash is nearing capacity, call the removal service to pick up the container right away to make space for more debris.

Put certain materials in the container.

Cities and towns often have strict regulations on what is allowed to be thrown in dumpsters. Avoid throwing debris and materials that contain harmful or flammable chemicals such as motor oil, propane tanks, or car batteries. Some districts also put restrictions on items such as mattresses or car tires that are encouraged to be recycled instead of thrown away. Your dumpster rental company will tell you what items they’ll accept and deny.
