If you believe that you are going to have the need for a dumpster rental in the near future for a construction or cleanup project, you are going to want to learn as much as you can about the use of dumpsters. This way, you will be able to get the most out of your rental without ending up with any fees or penalties. To help you with that, you will want to read through these points:
You Cannot Just Put Anything You Want In There
While it might feel as though a dumpster should be a free for all for disposing of garbage or random things you can no longer make use of. However, this is not the case. Just like you have some restrictions on the type of things that you can put into your regular garbage cans, there are going to be some restrictions on what can be placed in the dumpster. This is usually because of environmental laws that are in place. For example, you might not be allowed to place old tires in the dumpster. Instead, they need to be taken to a recycling center. You may also not be allowed to place anything in the dumpster that still has coolant in it, as the coolant can leak out of the unit and then go into the soil and local water supply. If you put something in the dumpster that is on the list that they give you regarding the prohibited items, you might end up with a fine or even another bill in the mail.
You May Need A Second Dumpster
If you are not careful to select a dumpster size that is big enough for all of your disposal needs, then you might have to call the dumpster company to have them come out with a second one for you. They can then haul away the one that you have already filled up. Of course, you will have to pay for the delivery of a second dumpster, so it might be better for you to get a slightly larger dumpster than you first suspect you will need, just in case.
Now that you are more aware of what you can expect from your rented dumpster, it is time to go ahead and call to make your reservation. It is important to make sure that you are calling as well in advance as you can because certain times of the year can end up being busier than others and the size of the dumpster you need could end up already in use by someone else if you wait too long to call.
