3 Things To Consider When Renting A Dumpster

Whether it's a small home improvement project or a full-scale renovation, chances are you will need some help when dealing with the waste produced. Demolition often means needing to get rid of drywall, lumber, and even large appliances. Dragging all of this off to the dump may not even be a possibility or a good use of time. Renting a dumpster is a great way to get rid of the debris during any sort of home improvement project. For those who are considering renting a construction dumpster during a home improvement project, here are three things to consider.

The Size Of The Dumpster

The first thing that anyone who is renovating any part of their home should consider is the size of the renovation. Large full-home renovations will often require renting either a very large dumpster or more than one dumpster. Smaller renovations often require smaller dumpster rentals. It's not one size fits all. The most common sizes for construction dumpsters are 10 yard, 20 yard, and 30 yard dumpsters. For large renovations, 30 yard dumpsters are often the best option.

Where The Dumpster Will Be Placed

Another thing to consider when renting a dumpster is where it will be placed during the project. In some cases, there may not be much room for the dumpster. Those who have small yards, driveways, or limited street space should measure carefully before renting a dumpster. Permits are also often required by many local governments before a dumpster can be used in certain areas. The type of waste being disposed of is also a factor when renting a dumpster. If hazardous materials are being handled, special dumpsters or haul-off procedures may be needed.

How Much It Will Cost

Another thing to consider when renting a construction dumpster is the overall cost. On average it costs between $291 and $524 to rent a dumpster with pick-up fees costing between $129 and $179.  A small daily fee, usually between $5 and $10, may be added on if the dumpster is being renting for more than just a few days. Dumping fees are also something that must be paid. These fees vary from state to state. However, dumping a ton of waste often costs around $100 or more at most dumps. Hazardous waste disposal can cost even more.

Renting a dumpster is a great way to deal with the debris produced by a home renovation project. When renting a dumpster it's important to consider the size of the dumpster and where it will be placed. Renting a dumpster also costs a few hundred dollars in most cases. It's also important to consider dumping fees and other costs associated with dumpster rental. Contact a service, like Michael's Rolloff Solutions, for more help.

Looking For Garbage Removal

After trying to figure out what to do about my junky yard, I finally realized that junk removal was the answer I was looking for. I began talking with different sanitation companies to figure out what to do, and I was able to completely change companies from what I was working with before. They offered a dumpster rental that would work well for what I needed, so I rented it and had it delivered to my property. Within a few days I had the place clean, and it was really nice to know that things were sorted out. Read more about garbage removal on my blog.
