When Is It Appropriate To Rent A Dumpster?
People rent a lot of things, such as cars, boats, airplanes and real estate. While a disposal unit might seem like the last thing anyone would want to rent, below are some common reasons why renting a dumpster is a good idea.
Home Renovation Or Remodeling
Anyone who has performed home renovation or remodeling knows that the process can result in a large accumulation of waste. A lot of items will be unneeded or unwanted, and standard trash cans won’t be sufficient to hold it all. A rented dumpster can be used for throwing away excess waste and household materials such as old furniture, clothes and toys, along with construction materials such as insulation, wood and metal.
Hosting A Large Party Or Gathering
Gatherings such as weddings, holiday celebrations and parties which involve hundreds of family members and friends will quickly lead to the accumulation of trash, due to the paper plates and plastic forks, napkins and plastic/glass bottles that will be used. It is best to rent a dumpster or two even if you have trash cans available on the premises, as they might not be sufficient to hold the waste.
Garage or Attic Cleaning
Those who have owned their homes for decades will often accumulate a lot of stuff, particularly if the property was passed down to them in the form of an inheritance. Thus, when the attic or garage is cleaned out you will quickly find yourself with a ton of stuff that you don’t want or need and you’ll need a place to put it. If you’re not interested in selling these items then the next best thing is a rented dumpster where they can be thrown in.
The Family Is Moving
If your family is relocating, there is a limit to the amount of things you can bring, and if you’ve been living in your current house for years, it will need to be cleaned out, and you will most likely find that you have a ton of stuff that you don’t want and don’t have the time to sell. Renting a dumpster is a great way to safely and securely dispose of these items so that they don’t become an eyesore for your neighbors.
Additional Advantages Of Dumpster Rentals
Perhaps the biggest advantage of renting a dumpster is the positive effect it has on the environment. The world already has too much pollution as it is, and throwing refuse in a dumpster is the best way to ensure that it gets to the right place, which is the landfill. Even better, renting a dumpster makes it easier for recycling companies to sort through the trash to find plastic, metals and wood that can be reprocessed and used. In fact, to assist them when renting a dumpster and throwing items away you can place them in specific labeled containers to make it easier to process.
