Have you ever driven by a fancy event space and noticed the catering crew tossing trash bags into a big waste management dumpster? Or maybe there’s a huge mansion in your neighborhood that’s being renovated and you always see the dumpster carrying away building materials?
Either way, dumpsters probably stand out in your mind as an expensive option reserved exclusively for the uber-wealthy, long-term construction sites, or crazy after-party cleanup. While that may have been true at one point, that’s not the case in today’s market.
Here’s what homeowners need to know about the benefits of dumpster rental:
1. You’ve Got Options.
Dumpsters aren’t just one size fits all! This waste cleanup solution is ideal for anyone with an important job to get done—from homeowners with an attic that needs decluttering to a home renovation that needs fast turnaround. Dumpsters are ideal for homeowners because they come in different sizes for different purposes, and they can fit easily on a patio, driveway, or right in front of your curb without too much hullaballoo.
Explore your size options – start by assessing the kind of project you need to get done and getting an estimate on the cubic trash you need to toss.
2. No Fuss Dumpsters.
One of the most common concerns homeowners express about dumpster rental has to do with the inconvenience factor. If you have never rented a dumpster before, you don’t have any experience with how the process works, how much of a headache you might be signing on for, or if all the trouble will be worthwhile. Totally reasonable and valid concern!
Dumpster rental is actually very simple. That’s why it’s good to do your research and break this entire process down into baby steps:
- The rental company handles delivery to and from your house, so once you place the order you can sit back and wait for the arrival. There’s no terrifying ride down the freeway with a dumpster hooked to the back of your smart car.
- Once the dumpster is at your property, you can fill it up within the allotted time of rental, and even hire additional help from a work crew if you have big, heavy, or dangerous materials.
- Once the dumpster is filled and your rental window is up, a trained crew will return to haul the dumpster away to appropriate waste disposal facilities.
3. “Weight” a Minute.
So where does your money go? And how can you keep the rental price low? It’s a common misconception that extending the rental window (total number of days) also increases the total cost of the rental, when in reality most of the rental cost goes to covering the disposal process.
Typically, you have a week before extra day charges will be added to your bill. This breaks down to mean that your dumpster is weighed after leaving your property and your price is determined from that number. So if you want to keep costs low, try to sort out another option for heavier materials and keep your timeline under a week.
