If you have a renovation project planned for the next few weekends or an upcoming vacation week, consider renting a dumpster so it will be ready for the debris you create. A rented dumpster is the ideal way to get rid of construction debris and other junk you may need to eliminate as you work on your project. Here are some reasons renting a dumpster is the most convenient way to dispose of construction trash and junk.
You May Not Be Allowed To Use Residential Cans
Your residential garbage collector may not allow you to throw construction debris in your curbside trash. The debris you generate from a renovation project could be too large in both weight and volume to place at your curb anyway. If you can't get rid of your debris through your weekly pickup service, then you have to take the trash to the dump yourself, or use the convenience of a rented dumpster.
You Can Keep A Dumpster For Several Days
You can usually rent a dumpster by the week, but you may even want to rent it by the month if allowed by local codes. This gives you a place to throw your debris so it doesn't clutter your home and create a safety hazard. Since you'll have access to the dumpster for several days, you can work at your own pace over the weekends or after work and have a place for your debris when you need it.
You May Not Have To Sort Your Trash
Policies vary, so understand what you can mix together in your dumpster. The dumpster rental service may sort and recycle what they can once they pick up the dumpster so you don't have to waste time separating metal from other trash. Plus, you may not even know what can be recycled and what can't.
You Can Save Multiple Trips To The Dump
The alternative to a dumpster rental is to load all the debris in your truck and haul it to the dump. Since a pickup holds a fraction of debris as a dumpster, you'll have to make multiple trips. If you don't have a truck, you'll have to bug your friends about borrowing theirs.
If you take your own debris to the dump, you still have to pay disposal fees and gas, so you may find it is worth the extra cost to have a dumpster delivered to your home so you can enjoy the convenience of having a way to dispose of trash without hauling it to the dump yourself.
