2 Questions To Ask Before Renting A Dumpster For Your Home Improvement Project

If you are getting ready for a major renovation project on your house, you may have decided that it would be easier to rent a dumpster to deal with all of the scrap and old building materials. However, if you have never done this before, you may not quite know where to begin. If so, start by asking the following questions when contacting the rental service.

1.  What Size Dumpster Should You Rent?

One of the first things that you should inquire about before renting a dumpster is about the size. Knowing the size of the dumpster that you need helps you in two ways.

First, you want to have the correct size to hold the amount of junk and debris you will be throwing away. If you get a dumpster that is too small, you will end up having to haul it away for dumping mid-project, which will interrupt your workflow as well as cost you money.

Second, you need to know which dumpster you will be renting so that you have its physical dimensions. This will help you plan exactly where it will fit on your property so that you can clear the spot before it arrives.

If you are unsure as to what size you should rent, explain your project to the rental service. They can help you estimate the amount of refuse you will have based on the number and size of the rooms as well as the renovation you will be making.

2.  What Items Can and Cannot Be Thrown into the Dumpster?

The next question has to do with what the rental service allows you to throw into the dumpster. You should ask what items are restricted, especially if you are planning to use flammable liquids or may have old paint cans to throw out.

Restricted items depend on your state's laws and the rules of the rental service. Ask the service for a list of restricted items so that you not only know not to put them in the dumpster but can also plan for placing everything in a separate container. If you are unsure of what to do with your oils, flammable materials, or other restricted items, the service may be able to direct you to the proper facility. 

Asking the above questions before renting a dumpster can help you better prepare for its arrival and help make your home improvement project go more smoothly.

Understanding Home Sanitation

Do you remember the last time you really started to think about creating a cleaner home? I started thinking more seriously about how to make things better a few years back, and it occurred to me that I really needed to toss some things out. We started going through our place room by room to see what we could live without, and it was incredible to see just how much our efforts helped. Within a few days, we had completely cleaned the place up, and I was really amazed to experienced the difference it made. This website is here to help people to understand and perfect home sanitation and garbage removal.
