As a country, we generate a lot of trash. In 2013, we generated over 250 million tons of trash. Construction projects are actually accountable for as much as 40% of all the waste produced in the United States. If you’re working a temporary job — a more small-scale job, say — and don’t know where all the trash will go, you should consider looking into a dumpster rental service. Onsite dumpster rental is perfect if you only need a dumpster for a few weeks, not long term, and can save you the headache of carting it away piecemeal. Planning a dumpster rental into your budget when you’re getting ready to start a new project is a smart idea. We’ll tell you about what kinds of dumpsters are available for consideration and some of the benefits of using a dumpster rental service instead of purchasing a dumpster.
What Kind of Dumpsters Are Available?
Common dumpster rental sizes are a ten-cubic yard, a twenty-cubic yard, a thirty-cubic yard, and a forty-cubic yard dumpster, depending on how much stuff you’re planning on getting rid of. The smallest size is ideal for getting rid of brick and tile, or for smaller home remodel projects. The largest size is meant for bigger home remodeling projects, any bulky items, or major landscaping projects, among other tasks.
Most dumpster rentals are roll-off dumpsters, which means they’re open top dumpsters that have a rectangular shape and have wheels that are used to roll the dumpster into place (usually off of a special roll-off truck). This makes them easy to pick up, drop off, and otherwise transport, compared to traditional dumpsters, that need a garbage truck to lift them.
What are Some of the Benefits of Using a Dumpster Rental Service?
Dumpster rental services are fairly ubiquitous and surely have a presence in your area. In some cases, you might even be able to order one online and have it delivered right to your worksite. A rental service also helps streamline things. You’ll likely have a single point of contact and bundled billing. If you need an additional type of service (like picking up and disposing of the trash), they might be able to cover that too.
Rental services also tend to be flexible, carrying a wide assortment of dumpsters to rent, so that no matter how small or large your project, they have what you need. Ideally, they also offer the right kind of support for those who work in construction and have flexible scheduling, depending on what’s required from the job.
You can also depend on them to deliver the dumpster (and remove it) when they say they will and not have to worry about when everything will be removed. That’s one less thing to keep track of on your end. And, should any problems arise, there are customer service personnel on hand to turn to, which means you don’t have to spend that time troubleshooting or problem solving.
How Can I Find a Dumpster Rental Service?
If you’re looking to rent a dumpster, an online search will likely turn up what you’re looking for. And, of course, your contacts in the construction industry might be able to offer suggestions, or you may have heard of a company through word of mouth. The best way to find a reliable service is through referrals, so don’t hesitate to ask around if you’re starting from square one.
Local can often tend to be better as well, because they’ll be in the same time zone and have boots on the ground, so to speak, if you need someone onsite. However, thanks to the Internet, your options can range far outside your local area, so don’t be afraid to comparison shop, ask for quotes, and investigate all your options.
Find an easy solution to your trash removal problem with the help of a dumpster rental service! With great customer service, a variety of options, and good flexibility, this is one thing you can check off your list.
