Roll Off Dumpster Rental Tips
Are you planning on renting a roll-off dumpster?
If so, you need some tips on how to rent one.
This article will show you what to keep in mind when renting a roll-off dumpster for any project.
Tip #1: Consider the dumpster size.
First of all, pay attention to the size of the dumpster you will be renting for your project.
A good rule of thumb is that if the debris fits into a plastic garbage bag, it can fit into your roll-off dumpster.
If you need more information on how big the dumpster is, you may ask a dumpster rental company like Precision Disposal for quotes and estimates on dumpster sizes and prices.
Tip #2: Know what is allowed to be put in the dumpster.
Secondly, be sure to find out what kinds of things are not allowed in a roll-off dumpster.
For example, hazardous waste or chemicals cannot be placed in a roll-off dumpster.
If you put them in anyways and they break during transport to your site, they can leak onto other items and it may cause an environmental hazard which requires expensive disposal methods after cleanup.
The following most common things not allowed in a dumpster include electronics or appliances.
However, electronic devices can be recycled with various organizations, so call around to find out where you can take old household items for proper disposal.
Also, remember that damp debris should never go into a container of any kind, whether a dumpster or garbage bin.
Wet materials have a tendency to cause terrible odors and attract pests such as rats from nearby sources which will make your work site messy and smelly. Damp materials also can damage other materials being kept near them if they begin to mold.
Tip #3: Separate different kinds of waste.
Separating materials for recycling is the next thing you should do when renting a roll-off dumpster for any project.
Separating glass, steel, aluminum, paper, and plastic can be done by cutting them down to small sizes until they are all the same size to make it easy for sorting later on.
Receptacles are usually provided at places where you rent your dumpster service, so keep the different types of recyclable materials in separate bins/bags until you get them into their proper disposal locations.
Tip #4: Follow what kind of debris can go into each container.
Finally, be sure to pay attention to any instructions on what kind of debris should go into different containers.
For example, if you are clearing a house from an estate sale and it is filled with furniture which needs to be disposed of, keep in mind that most dumpster rental services do not allow for dumping furniture because the items may contain fluids or other contaminants.
These will leak out when tossed in a roll-off container. In these kinds of circumstances, you may need to call around to find a company that does rubbish removal instead of dumpster rental so they can deal with disposing of unwanted household items such as furniture and appliances.
