If you are taking on a home improvement project, you may produce more waste than can be accommodated by a standard trash can. You may consider renting a rolloff dumpster to accommodate the extra trash. Before you go through with a rental, you will need to consider a few things: size, permits, impact and whether a dumpster is the best choice for your project.
What is the right size dumpster for my project?
If you are simply cleaning up your garden or cleaning out a living room, chances are a huge dumpster will be way too big for your project. You’ll be paying more for space you will not need. Dumpsters are measured by their cubic yardage. For example, our 12×8 rolloff holds 10 cubic feet. When considering dumpster size, try to visualize the space your waste will take up so you don’t spend money you do not need to on a dumpster. You also need to make sure you will not overfill your dumpster because your dumpster company will not be able to pick it up if it is overflowing.
What is the environmental impact of my project?
Americans produce up to 400 million tons of waste each year, most of which ends up in landfills, where the greenhouse gas emitted from anything decomposing is released into the atmosphere or into waterways. While getting the waste out of your home may be your biggest concern, you should also take the environmental impact of your project into consideration. Recycle any materials you can, and make sure your dumpster rental company follow proper recycling procedures.
Can I throw out my trash in a dumpster?
Like regular trash, rental dumpsters have restrictions on what you can throw out. Paint, batteries and many chemicals will not be accepted in most dumpsters, and you will need to contact a town representative to find out how to dispose of your hazardous waste. If you are getting rid of anything that may have asbestos or could be flammable, make sure you can dispose of the materials properly. You should also make sure you have enough room to place the dumpster flat and fill out the proper permits.
