Renting a dumpster is an efficient and convenient way to dispose of waste materials, garbage, and junk. Whether at home or on the job, a dumpster offers a whole host of benefits. They help to increase productivity, promote safe working conditions, remove safety hazards, and are highly affordable.
In this blog post, the expert team at D.B.L. Disposal Services will highlight everything you need to know about renting a dumpster. These include the different sizes to choose from, restrictions on rubbish, loading a dumpster, and more. Let's get started.
1. THERE ARE DIFFERENT SIZES
Every project is different, be it a small residential renovation or a large-scale commercial job. The good news is that there are different sizes of dumpsters to match every project.
Here at D.B.L. Disposal Services, we have 5 different sizes of roll-off bins, ranging from 12 cubic yards right up to 40 cubic yards. Other sizes include 16, 20, and 30 cubic yards. As an example, a 16 cubic yard dumpster is 12 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 5 feet in height.
2. NOT EVERY MATERIAL IS ALLOWED
We provide dumpsters for a host of different materials, including but not limited to general garbage, roofing, wood, concrete, cardboard, drywall, metal, yard waste, shake roofing, and land clearing debris.
However, there are certain materials that are not allowed in a dumpster. These include materials such as asbestos, chemicals, paint, oil, gas tanks, toxins, explosives, solvents, and oil drums. If you aren't sure about a particular material, feel free to ask our team for expert advice.
3. YOU DON’T NEED TO BE AT HOME FOR DELIVERY
This is also true with collection. We're able to deliver and collect the dumpster at a time that is convenient to you; you don't have to be at home. All you need to do is provide instructions when you book one of our dumpsters, such as where exactly you want it placed, and our team will take care of the rest.
4. YOUR PROPERTY IS PROTECTED BY INSURANCE
All of our equipment, trucks, and staff are fully licensed and insured. This means you don't have to worry that your property could be damaged during either the delivery or collection of your rental dumpster. We are happy to present our liability insurance upon request.
5. THERE IS A RIGHT WAY TO LOAD A DUMPSTER
There is also a wrong way, too. Take some time to plan the loading of your dumpster so that you maximize the available space. It's also important to level out the rubbish and ensure that you don't go above the dumpster's walls, as this will make both collection and transport safer and easier.
