Commercial dumpsters are the containers you usually find at parking lots, restaurants, construction sites or gas stations. They are generally parked on a permanent basis with regular pickups for the disposal of trash.
Whether you are a contractor or business owner, dumpster rentals can be one of the most viable solutions for efficient waste removal at your site. With Bargain Bins, you can enjoy our high-quality services at affordable prices. Our friendly staff is experienced to help steer you in the right direction while choosing dumpster type, placement, size and other logistical information. The most common commercial dumpsters are available in the following specifications:
- 12-15 yard dumpster: These are ideal for businesses who carry out small-scale renovations or remodels.
- 20 yard dumpster: These are suited for medium-scale construction, remodels, and larger landscaping projects.
Read on to find out how our dumpster rentals can be used by contractors:
Construction and demolition
At the outset, it is important for a contractor to determine certain aspects of the site before renting a commercial dumpster. These include the type of materials to be disposed of, the amount that will be collected, how long the construction/demolition will last and the like. Thus, planning these in advance can allow for the most efficient business decisions, including which dumpster rental services to hire and why. Afterall, managing a construction site is no child’s play with budgetary restraints, deadlines, safety standards and on-site operations to take care of – why not let experts such as Bargain Bins handle waste management?
As you may be aware, Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris is unlike regular waste. Neither can these heavy debris be tossed into a garbage bin nor are they collected by our friendly neighborhood garbage collectors. Thus, C&D debris such as concrete, bricks, plaster and drywall need to be collected and disposed of using large dumpsters that can keep your construction and demolition sites organized. Bargain Bins also offers quick pickup and delivery so your site stays clean.
As mentioned previously, choosing the right dumpster size is key in controlling costs. How can our various dumpsters can be used across projects:
- 12 yard dumpster: This is the smallest size and can fit approximately six pickup truck loads.
- 15 yard dumpster: When in doubt, it is recommended to rent a 15 yard dumpster that can hold approximately 7.5 pickup truck loads.
- 20 yard dumpster: Larger construction or renovation crews working on bigger projects prefer the 20 yard dumpster that can hold about 10 pickup trucks loads in a go.
Concrete and building debris
If you are a contractor or a construction site owner, you know how difficult it is to tear up concrete. Is it fair then that you should also worry about its disposal? In smaller projects such as tearing down a wall or larger ones such as demolitions, you need an efficient dumpster rental service that can help you remove the concrete, asphalt and other building materials from your premises. Generally there are two types of debris that can be collected in a concrete dumpster:
- Clean concrete: This concrete is devoid of excessive metals or other contaminants.
- Mixed heavy debris: This type of trash is a combination of concrete along with brick, block or asphalt.
15 to 20 yard dumpsters are ideal for driveway and slab removals, wall teardowns, residential or commercial renovations and demolitions. Again, refer to the legal weight restrictions when planning your project.
Dirt and rubble
Despite being organic and safe for the environment, dirt often cannot just be tossed into the garbage bins. Even dumping it in forests or parks can land you in trouble with the state or federal authorities, or other private property owners. Instead, it is recommended to rent a dumpster, which is ideal for soil compound removal or projects that involve yard debris. These can be useful for excavating or landscaping companies that tend to produce large amounts of dirt or rubble during their projects.
It is important to remember that dirt is denser than other construction debris, making it heavier as well. Determine the approximate weight of the dirt you will be hauling into the dumpster as the weight limit of a dumpster is a determining factor of the price. If you go above the weight limit, you may be liable to pay approximately $80 per ton extra. For peace of mind, though, contact the experts at Bargain Bins who can give you an accurate estimate on the amount of dirt accumulated in your project and the recommended dumpster size as well.
An important tip from Bargain Bins is to always evaluate the weight of the trash you will be putting in the dumpster. This is because landfills do not charge by volume but by weight, and you do not want to be caught off guard!
