I know you’ve you’ve thought about it. I have too. You see that dumpster parked outside your neighbor’s house, it gets to be late at night, and you think, “I could take a few things out there…”
But dumpster mooching is a bad idea. It’s not just inconvenient, it is downright un-neighborly, and it’s not going to endear you to anyone who lives nearby.
There are a few reasons for this. The first is cost. Dumpster container rental is based on the amount of stuff that needs to be removed. Usually it’s based on volume. Dumpsters come in different sizes: ten yards, twenty yards, thirty and forty yards.
The larger the dumpster, the higher the cost. That means it’s in your neighbor’s interest to get the smallest dumpster possible to fit the debris from their project. They may not have much wiggle room to play with. If you go out there and take up a few cubic feet with your own stuff, they may find themselves out of space in a hurry. And there’s no free refills.
Then there’s the weight factor. These dumpsters are delivered and retrieved on trucks. Obviously, a truck can only carry so much weight, and the metal container itself is already quite hefty. That means there is a weight limit on every dumpster container rental and it is strictly enforced.
It’s funny, for some reason when people are sneaking rubbish into someone else’s dumpster they never choose something light. It’s never old newspapers, always gravel or bricks or something like that. But if you put your neighbor over their weight limit they may have to rent a whole second dumpster – and they may want you to pay for it.
The funny thing about dumpster sneaking is that it’s not even that expensive to rent a dumpster of your own anymore. Dumpster rental Durham has become very affordable. Instead of saving that rubbish for a late night raid across the fence, just give a call and get a dumpster rental of your very own.
You can choose when it will be delivered, what size you need, and when it will be picked up. The company can guide you through any regulations there might be on the type of waste you’re talking about. Of course, you might want to rent a dumpster one size bigger than you need – you know your neighbors are going to come over and do a little mooching of their own!
