Dumpster Rentals vs. DIY Garbage Disposal

If you
are planning a home clean out, renovation, or demolition project, one
often-overlooked thing you will have to plan for is waste disposal.
The two most popular choices are renting a dumpster or taking care of
it yourself. Here is what you can expect from each.
If You Do It Yourself…
  • You will need to
    have a permit at your local dump.
    can’t just show up at your local dump with a pickup truck full of
    garbage, you need to obtain a permit first. The process varies from
    town to town, but typically you will need to present valid vehicle
    registration, proof that you live in the area, and pay a fee.
  • You will have to
    make several trips which most likely include heavy lifting.
    you are doing a small project, plan on spending a good portion of
    your day loading up your truck, driving to the dump, unloading,
    driving home, and repeating the process. This not only takes up a
    lot of time, it can put you at risk of injury – especially to the
    lower back if heavy lifting is required.
  • You need to be aware
    of local dumping laws.
    are not a “one size fits all” solution for all of your garbage.
    Every landfill has certain rules and regulations which include
    prohibited items, designated dumping areas for different types of
    garbage, and weight limits for how much trash you can drop off in a
    day. It is up to you to know these rules to avoid getting in
If You Rent A Dumpster…

    Your rental dumpster
    will be dropped off in your driveway at a time which is convenient
    for you. As you accumulate waste, just throw it in the dumpster and
    someone will pick it up when it is full – it’s that easy!
  • Save time, energy,
    and gas.

4 Reasons You Should Rent a Dumpster for Your Next Home Project

is here and so is spring cleaning – do you have a project on the
horizon? If you are planning a home clean out or remodeling project,
one thing you will need to consider is waste disposal. Rental
dumpsters are an effective waste management solution and offer many
benefits to homeowners. Here are four reasons why you should rent a
dumpster for your next home project.
1. Your garbage cans
aren’t big enough.
you are renovating your house or cleaning it out, you are bound to
notice one thing – you have a lot of waste. If you quickly fill
your home’s garbage can and find yourself asking where to go from
here, renting a dumpster is a viable option.
2. Renting a dumpster is
When it
comes to waste disposal options, renting a dumpster is as easy as it
gets. All it takes is one phone call to your local dumpster rental
provider and they will drop off a storage container right in your
driveway. Fill it up with your garbage at your own pace and they will
come back to haul it away for you – it can’t get any more
convenient than that.
3. Save time, energy, and
If you
have massive amounts of garbage, disposing of it by yourself takes a
lot of work – renting a dumpster can save you both time and energy.
Even a small, 10-cubic yard rental dumpster can hold enough waste to
fill about three pickup truck beds. Avoid the hassle that comes with
loading a truck, driving to the dump, and unloading it several times;
rent a dumpster and let someone else do it for you.
4. You don’t need a
permit at your local landfill.
One of
the biggest perks of renting a dumpster is avoiding your local
landfill. In order to dispose of your garbage at your town’s dump,
you will need a permit. Obtaining a landfill permit takes time and
often money, plus you need to familiarize yourself with all of their
dumping rules and regulations.
