Determine the Size of the Container You Need
When establishing the size of the dumpster you will be using, you have to think about its dimensions, as well as its weight and volume. Debris such as rocks, concrete and dirt normally take up less space, but they are too heavy to fill a regular container. If you can’t be sure exactly of the size you need, tell the container company about your project and they may be able to give you some good advice on the matter.
Also, remember that, in many cases, containers of similar volumes will come in different sizes, so plan accordingly. The height of the container should still be accessible enough to allow you to lift heavy weights easily over the side.
Schedule Your Delivery
When determining when you want your new dumpster to be delivered, always keep in mind that the delivery alone may take up to 48 hours, so you will have to be precise about the exact period. If the space isn’t cleared by then and you still have work to do, you may have to extend the renting period to fit your needs. Also, if you’re pressed for time, you should calculate the time of arrival to be as soon as possible, preferably right after the renovation work is done.
Talk to the Authorities
Before starting to fill the dumpster with various waste materials, it is very important to call the authorities and find out exactly what you can and can’t place in it. Trash removal rules generally differ for each city, and the local authorities may fine you if you place unacceptable materials to be delivered to the landfill, such as hazardous chemicals or highly flammable items.
Follow Safety Procedures
The first safety precaution you should take before your container even arrives is to find a space on your yard where it can be placed without interfering with driveways, overhead wiring or septic tanks. Also, you will need to make sure that the path to the road is clear, so the disposal process can go as smoothly as possible, and that all the necessary safety precaution are taken to avoid injuries, especially when disposing of large chunks of concrete.
If you follow all these tips, you can easily dispose of your excess debris even after a larger renovation process and ensure that everything goes well. While these services are not always cheap, they are considered by many to be the least expensive household trash removal methods that can be used in such cases.
