Dumper Rental Tips


Tips for making your dumpster rental a breeze:

Plan ahead when possible:

Try and give several days notice when planning your dumpster drop. This ensures you’ll be able to get a container out as soon as you’re ready for your project.


Figure out where you’ll want your roll off container set:

Most times this will be in your driveway, close to the house. There are things to look out for though, such as low hanging trees or basketball goals that could impede the driver’s ability to place your container. If you need your container placed off of a concrete surface, be sure to check the forecast for the duration of your project to make sure placing or picking up the container won’t be an issue due to wet conditions.


Load your container efficiently:

By taking time to load larger items carefully, you can ensure you get the most out of your dumpster rental. There are other things you can do, such as breaking down large items with a sledgehammer or reciprocating saw / Sawzall®.


Dispose of hazardous items properly:

Placing hazardous waste such as appliances with Freon, paint cans or tires in a dumpster is not only a bad policy, it will end up costing you money. These items are either not accepted at most landfill facilities, or they will incur additional charges that are the responsibility of the customer. If you have hazardous waste to be disposed of, give us a call and we can assist you in disposing of it properly.



If you have items that are able to be recycled, such as appliances without Freon, electronics, etc. Place them at either the front or rear of the container so they can be easily sorted for recycling.

  1. Hello, this is Doug from US Logo Companies. Glad to be back! Visit https://uslogo.net, enjoy!
  2. It's great to learn more about dumpster recycling. I like how you mentioned that it's smart to load the container as efficiently as possible. That makes sense, especially since some pieces of garbage fit better in certain places. When we remodel our kitchen, I'll remember this.
  3. I do like that you dedicate a part of the article to reminding people to think carefully about where they want the dumpster to be dropped off. After all, it's not like you'll be able to move a heavy metal dumpster until the company comes to pick it back up. You want to make sure that the dumpster is in an unobtrusive place, but that you can still reach it easily while you're working.
  4. My husband and I are going to be doing a huge remodel of our home, and we need somewhere to put all of the demolition and other construction waste. I thought it was a good idea to break down large items so that you get the most out of the dumpster. We just need to find out where to rent a dumpster.
  5. I'm glad you mentioned breaking larger things into smaller pieces, so you can fit more into the dumpster. I have been looking for a dumpster, and I didn't know if it would fit my larger pieces. I can see how breaking them down, so they can all fit, would be a good idea.
  6. I'm glad that you mentioned that hazardous wastes items should be disposed of properly, and that many landfill facilities do not accept these items. As far as I know, it's very important that these items are handled with the proper care, especially if they are dangerous. It seems worthwhile to go through the waste to make sure everything is organized to prevent any kind of damage or danger. After all, you'll want to make sure that professionals are dealing with the hazardous materials.
  7. I completely agree with your tip about loading your container efficiently. When my husband and I were undergoing our own home renovation, we maximized the space of the dumpster we rented by breaking down all of our large items. The next time we seek out a dumpster, we'll be sure separate recyclable items so they can be easily sorted later on.
