Regular garbage collection is usually adequate for our weekly household trash needs. But periodically the volume or kind of trash we’re trying to get rid of is much more or outside the normal scope of the local trash collection service.

Dumpster rental

In these cases, employing a specialist trash hauler or even a same day dumpster rental service is an excellent option. These professionals have all the necessary equipment and also the know-how to deal with the collection and removal of anything from construction debris to old unwanted furniture. Calling them in to do the job for you will save time and a lot of hassle. You can clear space at home and have your excess trash and unwanted belongings taken away simply by making a phone call.

Estimating the amount of trash

Whatever the project you’re working on, be it general cleaning at home, remodeling, or construction, you have to pay attention to many aspects to finish the project effectively. The last thing you need on top of all that work is to worry about finding time at the end to haul away the trash and dispose of it effectively. Disposing of the trash by yourself involves plenty of physical work. It will cost you heavily in terms of money and time.

Making multiple trips to a junkyard or the local garbage dump is time-consuming, and you’ll then be faced with deep cleaning your vehicle after hauling away all the trash items. It’s much better and easier to simply get the right size of the dumpster delivered to your home; one that meets your trash disposal requirements. Check out the common dumpster sizes offered for hire in your neighborhood and try and estimate the size that would be enough for all the things you need to be removed.

Top tips for dumpster rental

  • Look closely at the cost and hire terms and ensure there aren’t any hidden charges.
  • Be prepared to eliminate any oils, gasoline, or chemicals, or any kind of flammable or toxic substances. Most dumpster companies do not allow such waste materials. This is a sensible precaution because these materials can potentially be very dangerous. Look for a specialist service provider for this type of waste.
  • Don’t procrastinate in getting a local dumpster rental service should your house be full of clutter, trash, or construction debris. A lot of trash and clutter generates even more filth as well as potential health risks. No one would like to live in this way, especially if you have children or pets.

Sell anything you can

Before you order your dumpster, try to get rid of any old unwanted household items you wish to sell. No point in just throwing them in the dumpster if you can make some cash from them. And, there’s no point in ordering a larger dumpster than you need. It will cost you more. Get organized! We all have something lurking within our own homes that we may not want anymore, but other people might find useful or even valuable. Old clothes, forgotten children’s toys, and mismatched dishware are always good things to start with. If you have sufficient time, check through your basement, attic, and garage for other forgotten items that are only gathering dust. You may be shocked at the number of things you kept around unintentionally.

Selling these items beforehand could also help cover some of the cost of the dumpster rental. You’ll also ensure that you order the right size of dumpster. You’ll probably get away with hiring a smaller one than if you didn’t sell some of your old things first. So it will be cheaper if you sell and reduce the number of things that need to go in the dumpster.
