Renting A Dumpster? Read This Then Fill Out The Form Below
Top 3 Considerations Before Choosing a Dumpster Size
There are three main concerns that should be considered when you’re deciding which size of dumpster is going to be the most efficient and affordable.
The Weight of Your Trash – Dumpsters are approved to hold only so much weight. Exceeding the weight limits can damage the garbage dumpster, make loading difficult to impossible and compromise safety. It can also lead to overage fees that increase the final cost. When you are unsure of the overall weight it’s always best to err on the side of caution and go bigger. Throwing out gravel, stone or construction materials? These materials might not take up much space, but they will quickly add up in weight.
The Space Available Onsite for a Rental Dumpster – Roll away dumpsters can be moved into place on any solid surface that is free of obstacles like trees and overhangs. Before delivery you’ll need to determine how much space is available for a trash container and which spot will make loading the easiest without getting in the way. Another thing to keep in mind is the city regulations that specify where a dumpster can’t be place. For example, most cities will not allow roll-off trash containers to be placed in the street, even if it’s in a parking area.
The Amount of Space Needed to Contain Trash – The height, length and width of the trash dumpster rental will add up to the total cubic yards of space that are available. Debris will need to fit completely within the waste dumpster and should not go over the top of the roll-off dumpster. If it does this could lead to additional fees.
