Renting a Dumpster vs. Hauling Your Own Waste

Every person with garbage piles ends up debating over whether they should get a dumpster rental or move everything themselves. Here’s what you need to know renting a dumpster or hauling your own waste.

Is the Landfill Close?

When debating the right approach to getting rid of all your garbage, you run into a few problems, such as distance from a landfill if you wanted to do it yourself or how long you can keep a dumpster if you decided to lease.

Regardless of your choice, if you think about doing the dumping yourself, you might want to figure out where the closest dumping zone is before making your final decision.

There are a few other things you need to know about, and that’s if you own them or know someone you can acquire them from a truck and trailer.

Truck and Trailer

A truck and trailer come in handy when you want to try out hauling stuff on your own for a change. However, before you start filling up the car and trailer, you need to determine how much can fit in there before it overfills, as you don’t want it to overflow.

So, when you are working with your truck and trailer, start organizing the piles first and then neatly stack them into the bed of the truck and trailer. After that, you have a clear idea of how much you can hold without worrying about overage fees.

Additionally, you need to consider mileage allowances. This allowance determines how far you can go with your rental before accruing extra fees.

Renting a Dumpster

Sometimes you need a little extra help in sorting through the rubbish and giving you a layout of pre-determined amounts you can place into the dumpsters.

For instance, the company you get a 12-yard dumpster rental from already has information on how much you can place inside and how long it’s available for leasing.

It’s essential to know your options and be informed of how much you can store into a container and what sort of fees you can expect in case you go over on miles or weight.

The Decision Is Yours

Some don’t mind hauling their own waste, but others prefer the extra advantage of having a service do a quick drop-off and pick up.

As you make your decision, ensure that you stick within your budget and ask companies questions to compare the best choice for you. Also, check how far you’ll be if you need to tow stuff on your own.

Choosing between renting a dumpster and towing your own messes all comes down to how many team members you have behind you to do the moving, and whether you don’t mind spending a little more for a dumpster rental.
