Anyone who has gone through a remodel or a massive cleanup can tell you the amount of refuse that is generated can be overwhelming. From kitchen remodels to basement clearing/cleaning to new landscaping – the tons of material can be a burden unless the right solutions is in place.
Some municipalities offer special spring-cleaning programs that give residents the option to bring their junk to the curb, but it can be too much of a burden for trash crews due to non-residents taking advantage of the program. Highland Park, for example, offers four spring-cleaning pickup days in April, but the city council is prepared to shut that program down in favor of a different one that would be more efficient.
Some fortunate residents, like those in Provo, Utah, can take advantage of free dumpsters placed throughout the city from the end of March to the beginning of May – perfect timing for spring cleaning. Not all items are acceptable though, including various landscaping materials, appliances, tires and concrete, which means these folks might still require the services of a dumpster rental company to get them through their spring-cleaning project.
The best approach to organizing spring-cleaning efforts is to begin planning while the snow is still deep
Dumpster rental makes spring cleaning projects easier
Upscale communities are more sensitive to refuse removal than others. These are communities known for their immaculate lawns and landscaping, and they do not take kindly to mounds and piles of spring cleaning materials on the curb. A more appropriate solution for this and other communities is a dumpster.
Many dumpster companies are taking notice that neighbors aren’t happy with just any old beat-up dumpster; they only want to see ones that are newly painted and not in the slightest bit an eyesore.
The best approach to organizing spring-cleaning efforts is to begin planning while the snow is still deep. Those with experience in large cleaning projects know how quickly it can get out of hand, which is why careful planning in advance can negate problems down the line. Large projects like entire garages and/or basement cleanings will definitely require a dumpster. Do your neighbors a favor and have the dumpster delivered and picked up within a week’s time or less.
Need some advice on how to handle your spring-cleaning? Consider these tips:
- Make calls or do research online about the dumpster rental options in your region. Make sure they offer clean dumpsters that won’t be an eyesore to your neighborhood.
- Remove every object in the room that is being deep cleaned. While this is time consuming, it allows you to take inventory of what you need and don’t need. Plus, it’s easier to arrange when you begin placing items back into the room.
- Have your dumpster positioned so that you can quickly and easily remove any junk that you want to go to the landfill.
- Once you have the room deep cleaned and perhaps installed new storage stations, clean everything that will be coming back into the room and store it in its appropriate area.
