Whether you’re in the middle of a construction or demolition project, or you simply want to clean out your home or office, a dumpster rental is a great place to start. You can easily get rid of items that are no longer wanted or needed, without having to take them to the dump yourself. Dumpster rentals add many benefits to your project and can easily be set up and removed when you need them to. While they are a great addition to many projects, there are some common mistakes made that you want to avoid when renting dumpsters. 

Do Not Overfill the Dumpster Rental

When you rent a dumpster, you must be mindful not to fill it too full. This can add danger to the company when they are trying to load and haul your trash away. That can cause them not to remove the dumpster and you could incur more fines or have to empty the bin out. Be mindful of what you’re putting in the dumpster and how much can safely be hauled away at a time. This will help you to prevent issues when it’s time to remove the dumpster.

Be Cautious of Where You Place the Dumpster

If you’re working on a project in the city, then you may have to follow code about where the dumpster can be placed. Cities typically have strict regulations in place when it comes to where a dumpster can be placed if it’s on the street or in the alley. Be mindful of those regulations and ask before your company delivers the unit to your residence. However, if you’re working on a private piece of property, placement will be easier due to more flexibility.

Do Not Dump Hazardous Materials

Check with your dumpster rental company before throwing everything out to confirm what types of materials they can handle. Some companies can not handle hazardous materials, and in those cases, you will need a specialized removal system. For example, medical waste can not just be thrown into any dumpster down the street. It has to be handled a certain way. Double-check with your company to find out what type of items they can and cannot handle.
