When you’re getting ready for a major home improvement project there are a million details to think about. What everyone wants to focus on, of course is how great the house will look when the project is one – that beautiful new dining room, that updated bathroom, that three-season porch you finally added on. These are the things that you keep you going as you get ready to rip apart your home. Other details may not be as easy to keep in mind – for example, who wants to think about garbage?
But garbage and waste will pile up quickly during any construction project. Even seemingly small projects, like re-carpeting a room, will produce a lot more debris and waste than you’d expect. This is no problem if you have a plan for how to get rid of it all, but if you don’t it can easily ruin the sense of satisfaction you get from a job well done. After all, that porch won’t be so picture perfect with a heap of rubble on the sidewalk. So should you get a rental dumpster?
Dumpster rental Washington DC can be very easy, and it comes with some advantages. The biggest and most obvious is that when you rent a dumpster you do not have to deal with waste removal yourself. All you have to do is get the debris into the container, call the company and they’ll take care of the rest. They deliver the dumpster to your door and they make it disappear afterward. Easy.
However, the advantages go deeper. If you were handling all that debris yourself, you’d have to know all the regulations around how to dispose of it. It sounds easy to throw everything in a pickup truck and take it to the dump, but what needs to be separated from what? Are you going to separate it during the project (and get your workers to do the same), or are you going to sort through the pile again in the truck? And are any of the materials considered hazardous to the environment? These are all things the dumpster rental company will handle for you if you rent one. Doing it yourself can be hard.
Whether or not you rent a dumpster for your project is completely up to you, but no matter what you choose you will need to dispose of your waste somehow. The easiest, fastest, and surest way is to rent from a professional.
