When you plan your construction or home renovation project, you might be wondering how to handle construction waste removal. Many people have never rented a dumpster before, and if that’s you then you might wonder whether it’s overkill.
Are dumpsters only used for large construction companies? Will it be a pain to try to have it delivered and set up? How much will it cost? There are lots of questions people have about getting dumpsters for their projects, so here are the answers to a few of the most common.
First off, how does it work? This is what most people start off by asking. Renting a dumpster might seem intimidating if you’ve never done it before. After all it is a big piece of equipment. But the type you’ll be renting is called a roll off dumpster, and they are designed to be easy and user-friendly.
As the name implies, this kind of bin can be rolled on and off of a big truck. The truck will bring it all the way to your house or build site and drop it off for you. This can generally be scheduled any way you like. Likewise, when the project is finished the truck will come back and load it up and take it away. There is nothing you need to do after booking the drop off and pick up times—no drive top the dump, no difficult machinery to operate. Just show the driver where you want your receptacle dropped off and it will be done.
Secondly, how much will it cost? People worry that this is going to set them back significantly. It seems like something only a large business would rent. However, there are a variety of sizes of dumpsters, some meant for small home projects, and they are priced accordingly.
Roll off dumpsters are priced according to the volume of waste and debris they can hold, which is measured in cubic years. Standard sizes include a 10, 20, 30 and 40 yard option. 10 or 20 yards is enough for many smaller home projects and the prices are very competitive.
One thing is for sure: dumpsters are a sure fire way to reduce your stress, cleanup time and mess for your upcoming home renovation or construction project. When you provide your contractors with easy construction waste removal they will make use of it and your site will be cleaner from beginning to end.
