Dumpster rentals bring a great deal of ease and convenience to a project. From home cleanouts to commercial demolitions, having a dumpster on site helps to clear away debris more quickly, providing a cleaner and safer work environment, and helping you work faster. In order to get the most out of your roll-off dumpster, there are a few things you should be aware of before you start. Here are some vital tips for renting trash dumpsters.

Plan Ahead

Unfortunately, you can’t expect to call your dumpster rental company and assume you’ll have your dumpster delivered the next day. You might get lucky, but you need to remember that we only have a certain number of bins on hand, and oftentimes they are all already at other locations. We may not have the size you need when you need it. It is, therefore, essential to plan ahead. Know more or less what your requirements are well in advance and make your booking at least a week before you need the dumpster. The earlier you book, the better.

Choose Container Size Wisely

There are several different dumpster sizes to choose from. At Bargain Bins, we have four sizes, ranging from 3 cubic yards to 20 cubic yards. You don’t want to order a dumpster that is too small and find yourself running out of space before your project even gets to the halfway mark. By the same token, you also don’t want to order a 20-yard dumpster if you will only be throwing out 10 cubic yards of trash. If you are not sure what size you will need, tell us what you plan to throw out and we can help you decide. Don’t waste time, space or money by renting the wrong size dumpster.

Prepare a Location for the Rental Container

It is never a good idea to be haphazard in choosing where your container will be placed. You should choose a position that is ideally placed for convenience and maximum available space. The site should be level and free of any debris and obstructions. It should also not block any traffic routes for vehicles, personnel, or equipment. Also, ensure that the area has decent drainage, and that there are no low overhanging branches or power lines in the vicinity.

Stick to the rules concerning what can go into your dumpster

You can dispose of almost anything in your dumpster, but there are some limitations. When you are planning a dumpster rental, be sure to look at the material guidelines and check that the things you will be throwing out are included in the list of acceptable materials.
