3 Important Tips When Renting Construction Dumpsters For Residential Use

If you're doing a lot of renovating around the house, such as roof work, you'll need a place for scrap materials. That's what construction dumpsters are for. They are large and extremely sturdy. If you're looking to rent one out, these tips can ensure the process is smooth.

Assess Available Space

Before you have one of these large dumpsters shipped to your property, you first need to think about how much space is available for one. Only then will you have a better idea of what dumpster size to get.

Probably the best place to put these construction dumpsters is right in front of your driveway. You'll need to gather its dimensions, making sure you get the length and width. Height dimensions are also critical if there are trees that hang over the driveway. If you don't have a driveway, then you'll need to take measurements of any available space on the side of your property. 

See What Can Be Thrown Away

Normally when you think of dumpsters, you think of piles of trash and various objects inside. With a construction dumpster, however, you're limited on what can be placed inside. This 'prohibited items list' varies from company to company, so you'll always want to check ahead and see exactly what can be thrown away.

Most of these rental companies will not allow any types of chemicals, food, beverages, fertilizer, gasoline, oil, anti-freeze, and many other contaminants. You'll want to obey the rental company's rules too, because if you don't, they could enforce a hefty fine.

Opt for a Roll-Off Dumpster

Now, there are many great construction dumpsters you can rent out today. However, roll-off dumpsters are superior to other models for these residential purposes -- for many reasons. For one, they make throwing away trash extremely easy. Once you've placed all desired materials inside, all you have to do now is contact the rental company. They'll quickly load the dumpster onto their heavy-duty truck and take it away.

Roll-off dumpsters also have ends that open up completely, which prevents you from having to go over the top of the dumpster with larger items. You can thus prevent significant injuries during these trash removal tasks. There are so many roll-off dumpster sizes to select from as well.

Construction dumpsters rentals are extremely important when you have a lot of trash or scrap materials to dispose of at home. As long as you prepare for these dumpsters being on your property and select the right type, this whole experience will be a pleasant one.
