Hazardous Waste

Dumpsters are used for many garbage items. Contractors like to have a dumpster onsite for old building materials and unusable belongings on the job site. However, dumpsters cannot be used for hazardous waste. Avoid placing hazardous items in a dumpster, including:

  • Car Batteries
  • Cans of Paint
  • Antifreeze
  • Cleaning Solvent 
  • Pesticides
  • Lye
  • Pool Chemicals

No Space

Do you want a dumpster rental for a big clean-up job and expect to squeeze it into your driveway? It might be possible for a dumpster to fit in your space, but it would be a mistake to guess. Get in touch with the dumpster rental company to determine the exact measurements required for a dumpster. 

Once you have the measurements, take measurements of your space to ensure that the dumpster will fit. Estimating your available space measurements could be a significant mistake you want to avoid.

Wrong Size

You may have rented a smaller dumpster because you thought you had less garbage. Then you get halfway through the job to find your dumpster packed to the brim. Getting the wrong size dumpster can be a major inconvenience! 

Instead of guessing or going for the cheapest option, tell the rental company about your project. They’ve rented a lot of dumpsters and can help you to determine the perfect size for your situation. Trust the professionals!

Not Enough Time

Everyone wants to get projects done quickly. While that desire is understandable, renting your dumpster for too short a period is a problem. You need to be realistic and give yourself some breathing room. 

Life happens, and sometimes things don’t go to plan. You may get sick and be unable to work on your project for a week. There may be more work than you had imagined, and you may need to catch up. Save your dumpster by renting it for the appropriate amount of time.
