When you rent a dumpster, your service provider ensures that you familiarize yourself with the set rules and regulations stating what should and should not be thrown in the type of dumpster you rent out. You also need to be aware of the local laws concerning dumpster usage that have been set to keep you and everyone safe.

Here is some of what you should consider when you are planning to rent out a dumpster.

Size Of Dumpster

Are you planning on renting a dumpster? Dumpsters come in different sizes and types designed to fit various disposal needs. Before you rent one, you need to consider the volume or capacity of your waste or trash that you want to dispose of. Overfilling your dumpster makes it unsafe for our drivers to tow it out of your location. Not all dumpsters are designed alike; some are made to accommodate household debris, while others are made to handle the heavier stuff like construction and demolition waste. 

If you are not sure about what size to take, you can request the dumpster company help you pick the right size for your workload so that you avoid the hefty fines that you could be charged for overfilling your dumpster. 

Type Of Waste

When renting out a dumpster, identify the type of waste you have for disposal. Is your waste non hazardous or hazardous? What kind of waste is allowed in the dumpster? Is construction waste like roofing shingles, siding, wood, or furniture allowed?  Does the dumpster service provider allow electronics and appliances to get thrown in the dumpster? If you are ripping out walls, floors, roof tiles, and other home renovation waste, you need to be sure that it is acceptable in the dumpster. 

Dumpster companies allow most of your trash to get thrown away in dumpsters, but you need to consult with the service provider for more information on what should and should not be thrown in the dumpster. You can find yourself paying hefty fines for throwing stuff that is unacceptable in the dumpster.

What To Avoid

Dumpster rental companies do not allow hazardous or flammable materials to be thrown into the dumpster. Lighting a fire in the dumpster is not permitted, and you could be fined if you start a fire in the dumpster. You need to know that you are not allowed to move the dumpster. Attempting to do so using improper means can damage the dumpster, and you will be asked to pay for the damages.
