There is about 21 square feet of storage space in the average American home, and if you don’t have a storage unit that can be used up fast. And even then, storage units don’t have infinite space either, eventually, something has to go.
But depending on the sheer amount of possessions you have, you might have to get rental dumpsters to deal with all the belongings you’re throwing out. Rental dumpsters can be used for a variety of reasons, from cleaning to renovation, and should be perfect for any large project.
When You Need One
How do you know if you need a rental dumpster, however? There are a few situations that qualify for one, and a few that don’t. Here are some examples:
If you can’t park in your garage because of all the stuff that you have inside, it might be best to figure out what’s junk and what’s not. Rental dumpsters are perfect for this scenario because they’re big and have a lot of space to throw junk in.
This can also apply to moving, as you might not need a lot of the items you’re taking with you. If this includes furniture, having a large dumpster to toss stuff in can certainly help.
Another very common reason to get a rental dumpster is when you’re renovating your home. You create a lot of waste material when you’re remodeling, and you need a place to put it. A rental dumpster is a great, affordable, option instead of cluttering the back of a truck or your yard.
If you’re cutting down trees, tearing up bushes, or removing large amounts of rocks and foliage, a rental dumpster would be a good investment. You can deposit all the materials directly into the dumpster itself.
When You Don’t Need One
Some instances where a dumpster rental is not necessary can include:
Permanent Waste Removal
If you need a large amount of waste removed daily, weekly, or on any regular basis, then a dumpster rental may not be the best choice for you. This generally applies to locations like restaurants or similar industries.
Small Amount of Trash
If you only have a small amount of waste then a dumpster rental is not for you. The smallest one can hold as much as three pick-up trucks, and if you have less than that, it’s not necessary to rent one.
You should not dispose of hazardous materials in a temporary dumpster rental. These can pose a threat to the environment when left in landfills, and so they should go to a specialized facility. Contact your city to figure out where to dispose of these materials.
Those are some situation in which a dumpster rental could apply, and some in which they do not. Look at your needs and figure out what applies to you. If you need a dumpster for your project, home, or business, then contact us. We’ll be glad to assist you.
