Have you ever rented a construction dumpster before? For many people the answer is no, but it may be essential if you’re about to embark on any kind of home improvement or renovation project. If you are looking at renting one for the first time, there are some common questions you’ll likely have. This article will help answer them.
First off, do you really need a dumpster? This is the biggest question people ask. While no one can decide for you, the truth in almost every project is that it will produce more waste and debris than you think it’s going to. Even simple, small projects will often produce more bags of waste than you can put in your regular garbage cans. And this waste is frequently not accepted by the garbage truck.
There are many kinds of construction waste that require special treatment for disposal. This is something your dumpster rental company can take care of for you. Just let them know the kind of waste you’ll be dealing with when you call them up and they will know what to do.
Secondly, how exactly does this work? Do you need to rent construction dumpsters or any other type? Construction Dumpsters are actually very simple. They are loaded onto the back of a flat-bed truck which will bring them to your home or job site. The truck will drop off the dumpster on the street or wherever you designate.
Some areas require permits to park a dumpster, and if that is the case in your area the dumpster rental company will know how to get one. Once the dumpster is delivered, you have it available to fill up over the course of your project. When you’re all done you just give the company another call, they come load the dumpster back onto the truck and they take it away. You never have to worry about it again.
The last question people have is about dumpster size. Dumpsters come in all different sizes based on volume. The standards are 10 yards, 20 yards, 30 yards and 40 yards. This means there is a size that’s right for any project. If you’re not sure what you need, let the company know on the phone and they can help you figure it out.
That’s every you need to know to rent a construction dumpster. Getting one will make your project easier and make sure you don’t have a mess to clean up when you’re done.
