You’ve got a big project coming up and you’re not quite sure of the size and scope of everything involved in it just yet. However, you know for sure there will be waste removal involved and you want it to be taken care of without delay and without having the dumpster hauled off over and over again as this can cause delays. So, what size dumpster will work best for your residential or commercial project?
First, let’s take a look at some basic things you need to know about renting a dumpster:
- Prohibited waste – if your project involves removal of tires, automotive fluids, paint, e-waste (cell phones, computers, televisions), batteries and anything considered hazardous waste – it does not belong in a dumpster.
- Don’t go over your weight allowance. Each dumpster size holds a specific amount of waste. Going over can lead to fines/penalties.
- Know how long you’ll need it on the job site.
- Know what type of debris you’ll be clearing out. Some debris can’t be mixed.
