Renting a dumpster is the perfect way to make waste disposal simple. Even so, first-time renters will have a lot of questions when it comes to dumpsters. The tips below will help you make intelligent decisions as far as waste disposal is concerned.
- Find the right service for you.
There are different types of dumpster services but generally, your two choices are permanent and temporary. Choose the right one and you’re all set. Choose the temporary service if you only need it for a one-time job, such as home improvement or for cleaning up after a big party or celebration. But if you require regular trash collection for your company or business, select permanent dumpster rentals.
You’ll also have to select the ideal trash collection plan. Choose according to the size or amount of the trash that you want to dispose of. A weekly collection service is ideal for big businesses. The idea is to get the dumpster collected when it fills. If you think you can’t fill the dumpster weekly, then collecting the dumpster every other week will suffice. It’s also possible to get the dumpster collected monthly if that’s how long it takes before it gets full.
- 2.Choose the ideal dumpster size.
Regardless of the type of service you choose, it’s important to select the right dumpster size. To choose right, answer these questions: How big is the project? Are you remodeling or cleaning the entire house or is it just some areas? Are you producing more trash than an average business? You will get a good idea of which one to get once you answered these questions. Talk to a professional service provider to get assistance if you’re unsure.
3. Find a reputable company.
There are many indications of a trustworthy business and you must consider them all when choosing a dumpster company. The first consideration is, of course, if they are prompt in addressing your concerns. They should also answer all your questions, and understand their pricing scheme, while you’re at it. They must clearly explain to you the conditions of the lease so you don’t have to end up paying for extra charges and penalties.
4. Do you have enough space for the dumpster?
Find out which dumpster suits your space. Know the size of the dumpster that you’re getting and make sure that it will fit your property. Ensure that the delivery truck has at least 50 feet space allowance. Also, ensure a height clearance of about 14 feet. Make sure that the vertical space is free from power lines and tree branches.
- 5.Fill the dumpster smartly.
Make the most use of the dumpster. Fill it as you go along. Keep items from sticking to the edges or leaning on the sides. To put in heavy or large objects, use the door out front. There are things that are not permitted to be disposed of in a dumpster. Know about it and adhere to it. Some of the things that you should not throw in a dumpster are food waste, flammable substances, health waste, and toxic substances.
