When Do I Need a Dumpster at Home?

From home demolition to large at-home projects, sometimes it’s too much for your residential garbage to handle. If you find yourself in such a situation, dumpster rental is a time- and cost-effective solution instead of hauling companies or paying additional curbside fees. Today, we will go over some of the common reasons you might need a dumpster, as well as best practices to get the most out of them while avoiding problems or additional expenses. Let’s dive right in.

Getting a Dumpster Before a Move or Downsizing

If you’re planning to move—especially to a small house, condo, or retirement home—it can mean you’re suddenly generating a lot of rubbish. There’s always more stuff, from furniture to household products to literal trash, than we think there is. A dumpster allows you to quickly and safely move this rubbish out of your home, making the process of getting your home ready to sell a lot easier and what you’re keeping ready to move!

Rubbish Removal a Cleanout, Renovation or Demolition Project

It’s always exciting to get started on a new home project. Whether it’s finally emptying out a spare room or completely redoing the bathroom, renting a dumpster saves you many headaches. Much of what is generated in these types of projects can’t be thrown away in curbside service and will save you time and problems. Unlike a junk removal service, you can work at your own pace and don’t have to worry giving house access to strangers. And having the ability discard anytime you want means keeping workspaces and hallways clear.

Best Practices for Using a Dumpster

So, what can you do to make the most of your dumpster rental? Here are some best practices to make loading it the easiest, as well as things to avoid if you want to prevent additional fees or fines.

  • Prep Your Space for a Dumpster: You’ll want to make sure there’s space for your dumpster on level ground that can be accessed by a truck.
  • Know How to Deal with Big Items: Our dumpsters have one large door on the back of the container, allowing easy access to walk in larger items. We also offer separate bulk item pickup!
  • Know What Can’t Go in a Dumpster: While dumpsters can hold more, anything that can’t go to the dump can’t go in these. This includes hazardous waste, yard debris, and any other solid waste bans in your state.
  • Avoid Overfilling and Plan Your Time: Dumpsters should be loaded level full and not have any materials exceeding the top. Extended dumpster rental will incur additional fees, so plan your time wisely.
