Are you renting a dumpster to store outside your home for a move, spring cleaning endeavor, or home renovation project? If so, then there are a number of things that you should know. Continue reading for some helpful residential dumpster rental tips.
The Best And Worst Places For Your Rented Dumpster
Choosing where to put your dumpster can be tricky. Be sure that you have it dropped off completely on your property—i.e. not in the street and not on your neighbor’s land—and check to see whether you will be violating any neighborhood ordinances or municipal laws by having it placed in front of your property. If possible, avoid having the dumpster placed on your lawn, as the patch of grass your rented dumpster sits on won’t be in great shape by the time you have your dumpster removed.
The Do’s And Don’ts Of Maintaining Your Dumpster Rental
- Do try to keep your rented dumpster clean.
- Do cover the dumpster with a tarp if you are worried about rain or snow making a mess.
- Don’t attempt to move the dumpster on your own.
Early Morning And Late-Night Dumpster Runs
Try to avoid tossing anything in your dumpster before sunrise or long after sunset, as the noise made when trash hits the dumpster walls or floor could disturb your neighbors. Respect for your neighbors should be one of your top priorities in using your rented dumpster, so avoid disposing of anything that may cause your neighborhood to stink.
Restrictions On Waste Materials
Hazardous chemicals, car batteries, propane, asbestos, paint, and other liquids should not be placed in your dumpster. These materials can’t be recycled or left to settle in a landfill.
If your rented dumpster does not have a fill line, then be careful not to load it too full. Trash should never be so high that it can spill over any of the dumpster’s sides.
