Arranging junk removal can be challenging, especially when you have a lot of it that needs to be disposed of. Here are some tips to help you get started with your junk removal journey.
Set a Date and Rent Your Dumpster Ahead of Time
“Better late than never” does not apply here. You have to make sure you rent your dumpster way ahead of time to ensure that you have one when you need it. Bargain Bins is often booking out several weeks in advance, so don’t wait until Friday expecting to get a dumpster delivered on Monday! Set a date for when you will be renting the dumpster so that you don’t have to worry about that when the time comes.
Use Space Wisely
There are many ways you can save space in your dumpster:
- Flatten boxes and bottles.
- Put items into each other.
- Compact bulky items or take them apart if you can.
Using your dumpster space wisely allows you to put more junk into it. Just be mindful of the weight limit. If you are unsure of what size dumpster you might need, give Bargain Bins a call to discuss. Renting a second dumpster is more expensive than renting a larger one the first time. Also, condensing your items can potentially save you some money in additional dumpster rentals.
Throw Away All Of Your Items at Once
Instead of renting two dumpsters, which will cost you a lot more, the money-saving option is to rent a larger dumpster and get rid of everything at once. Plan your loading of the dumpster so that you make the best use of the space available.
Make Sure What the Acceptable Items are Beforehand
There are certain things, like chemicals and paint that haven’t dried up that you can’t throw into dumpsters. The EPA regulates hazardous waste, and it’s always better to ask the specialists at Bargain Bins what isn’t allowed in dumpsters, as they know best. Keep in mind that violating EPA regulations will result in additional fees.
Here are a couple of things you can’t throw in a dumpster:
- Light bulbs and batteries.
- Electronics and tires.
- Paints and solvents.
- Oil and gas.
Plan Your Timeframe Wisely
A good tip to get your disposal project started and completed is to put it on your calendar and confirm your dumpster reservation. Get everything together that you want to throw away to save yourself time from having to scramble to gather everything under a time crunch after the dumpster is delivered. . If all your junk is together, it’s a much more efficient process to throw it into the dumpster. It’s also easier to plan how to fill the dumpster efficiently and make the best use of the space.
