Renting construction dumpsters for construction debris is very common, and if you are renovating your home, it is often the best way to keep the mess under control. A dumpster placed on the property at the start of the project can stay there until it is full and will make a huge difference for a homeowner or DIYer working on the house themselves.
Dumpster rentals can offer many different solutions when removing a lot of old building materials from your home. Homeowners that do not have a truck to haul the debris away can take advantage of a dumpster and have the dumpster rental service empty it as often as necessary to keep the area around the house looking decent.
In some neighborhoods, you need permission from your HOA to have the dumpster on the property, but most associations prefer the dumpster to a pile of sheetrock and lumber on the front lawn.
The dumpster rental company can work with you to pick a spot for the dumpster that is convenient for you to fill and allows the truck driver to come and pick it up when needed. If you are using a smaller container, you may need a weekly pickup, but most companies will work with you to ensure they can meet your pickup needs.
Dumpster rentals typically come in multiple container sizes and styles. For homeowners that are removing a lot of large items from the home, a larger dumpster may be necessary. However, in some situations, the space you have for the dumpster is limited, so selecting one that still allows you to use the driveway, move things in and out as needed, and can provide enough for a weekend's worth of remodeling may be enough space.
If you are working on a project that will take several months to complete, ask the dumpster rental company about a flat fee for the container to help reduce the cost. Some companies will charge you one set fee, then a service fee when they empty the dumpster for you.
Often the rental company will allow a set number of pickups over the rental term and then apply a fee to additional service. So asking about the cost and extended rental discounts is an excellent way to make the dumpster rental more affordable.
When renting dumpsters for construction projects, it is essential to ask about any material restrictions the rental service may have. Often roofing, paint, and chemicals are not allowed in standard debris dumpsters, so it is essential to ask about it to avoid fines from the dumpster service.
