3 Things You Need To Know Before Getting A Residential Dumpster Rental

When you start tackling the clutter and junk in your house and yard, you'll probably find your big trash can fills up fast and you need another solution for getting rid of your junk. You might have a lot of little pieces of junk or just big pieces that won't fit in a garbage can. Plus, your city may not want you to fill up your can with certain kinds of trash or overload your curb with clutter.

The solution is a residential dumpster rental. You can put most kinds of household and yard junk in a residential dumpster, and the cost is usually pretty affordable, especially when you consider how convenient a dumpster is. Here's how renting a dumpster works.

1. Determine How Long To Keep The Dumpster

Some companies may rent by the week, while others might provide a dumpster overnight or over the weekend. Think about all the sorting and cleaning you need to do and figure out if you'll do it all in advance and stack your clutter aside so you can toss it all at once in a daily dumpster rental or if you want to toss as you go and keep the dumpster for a week or more.

2. Select The Size You Need

Choosing the right size for your dumpster might be tricky if you can't visualize how much clutter you'll have and you're not sure how much different dumpsters can hold. Compare prices, since bigger dumpsters cost more, and then get advice from the rental company if you need to.

It could be better to rent a dumpster that's larger than you need so you can be sure to get rid of everything at once than to rent one that's too small and have to rent a second dumpster.

3. Learn About The Regulations

A residential dumpster rental company usually has rules you have to follow, or you might be charged extra or the company may not pick up your dumpster until you've fixed the problem. Some things may not be allowed in the dumpster, and you'll want to know what those things are.

Also, it's important not to overload a dumpster because the dumpster will be driven down the highway. Everything has to be below the top of the dumpster or it may not be safe. You might need to take things out if the dumpster is too full. However, the way you stack things in the dumpster matters. You can get a lot more junk and clutter in if you maximize the space by stacking things properly.
