It seems that trash and waste can often accumulate around the home and yard. And when you are handling any home remodeling or spring yard clean-up, there will be a great amount of waste you need to dispose of. Here are some tips to help you successfully rent a dumpster bin for your next household and yard waste disposal and clean-up project.
Check Into Disposal Regulations
When you rent a dumpster, some regulations will allow you to only put some items into the dumpster. Check with your dumpster rental provider about any prohibited items so you don't accidentally dispose of them into your rented dumpster. For example, most construction waste, concrete, shingles, drywall, and carpeting are allowed in a dumpster. And also most appliances and electronics, such as your home computer, laptop, or television are allowed in a dumpster.
There are some dumpster rentals available that help you recycle materials you are disposing of, but this is only when all the contents of your dumpster will include recyclable materials. For example, if you are removing an old concrete slab and disposing of it into the dumpster, you may be able to recycle the concrete. Or if you are cleaning up your yard and will fill the dumpster with leaves, branches, twigs, and vegetation, which are all organic debris, check with your dumpster rental company about any recycling programs available.
Select the Capacity
Another important detail with your dumpster rental is the size of the dumpster you will need to rent. You will need to rent a dumpster that will fit all your project's waste into the bin without having to make a trip to the landfill in the middle of your work. If you don't order the bin in a large enough size capacity, you will need to request a pickup in the middle of your project and have to wait for the disposal and to receive an empty dumpster delivered again. For this reason, be sure you calculate the size of the dumpster you will need to accommodate all your waste, refuse, and trash with your clean-up or demolition project.
Talk to your waste disposal professional about ordering the right size. They can help you estimate your waste removal needs based on your project. For example, if you are removing the old roofing materials from a home, based on the size of the home and the roof's surface area, they can help you calculate how much waste it will create and the right-sized dumpster. The dumpsters usually come in yardage capacities, such as 15-yards, 20-yards, and 40-yards.
