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.
