Sooner or later, you’re likely to have a project requiring a dumpster rental service. This can be because the debris won’t fit into your bin for regular trash pickup, because there’s too much of it, or because you have items your standard service won’t take.
An affordable dumpster rental is more convenient and accessible than ever before, but you might not be sure which dumpster option is right for you. If you get a dumpster larger than needed, you’ll be paying for space you won’t use. On the other hand, if you get a dumpster that’s too small for the job, you might have to do a second rental, which will cost you more than if you’d gotten the right size in the first place.
Following are some tips for choosing the right dumpster for your project.
The dumpster size you need has a lot to do with the type of project. At Bin There Dump That, we have dumpsters with capacities of 10, 15, and 20 cubic yards. The 10-yard dumpsters are perfect for small renovations and up to medium-sized cleanouts, and the 20-yard dumpsters are suitable for major remodeling projects and more extensive cleanups. For perspective, it might help to know that the ten and 20-yard dumpsters hold 3 and 6 pickup trucks’ worth of debris, respectively.
Knowing what you have to dispose of can help you choose a suitable dumpster. For instance, if you’re replacing roofing shingles, you might be able to use a smaller size since the removed shingles and other debris stack up relatively flat. On the other hand, a basement cleanout might not generate a tremendous amount of waste, but items like old furniture might call for a larger bin. You’re not allowed to overfill a dumpster (nothing can be sticking out over the top). Another consideration is how much weight the dumpster is rated for upon pickup time.
Laws vary by state and locality, but typically, you cannot dispose of hazardous or flammable materials, refrigerators, tires, batteries, paints, and other items that may be dangerous or toxic. When inquiring about a rental, ask what’s not allowed in the bin and our team will let you know.
Be a savvy shopper and get more than one quote when considering your options. You’ll probably find most services in the same ballpark, but you may find outliers, if you find someone charging a lot more than the rest, they might be taking advantage but could also be offering more. On the other hand, a meager price might signal subpar service.
If in doubt, contact a trustworthy company with any questions you have. They’ll be happy to provide all the answers you need and recommend the right dumpster depending on what you’re doing and what type of trash and debris you’ll be generating.
