Dumpster Rental Mistakes to Avoid at All Costs

Renting a dumpster makes a lot of sense whether you are working on a professional building project or your own; a rental dumpster can also be very useful for homeowners who are doing some serious cleaning up or moving. Once you realize how much easier a rental dumpster will make things, you will wonder why you never rented one before when you were working on other similar jobs. Of course, like everything else that has to do with your project, you have to make sure that you go about renting a dumpster properly to avoid any hassles or problems. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who jump right into a dumpster rental in Austin without first considering a few important things and end up making mistakes that cost them either time or money. Keep reading for a few tips about avoiding mistakes with dumpster rental.

Be Careful What You Put in There

You can put almost anything that you want in a rented dumpster to get it out of the way and ready for the landfill; but “almost” means that there are certain things that you are not allowed to put in there such as hazardous materials and that includes gasoline, cleaning chemicals, and more. Make sure to ask the dumpster rental company about restrictions so you avoid problems and possible fines; they should have a list of things to avoid putting in their dumpsters ready to either give you physically or email to you since they should inform every single customer of this.

Avoid Damage to Your Property

Before you rent a dumpster, make sure to decide where on your property or the property that you happen to be working on you will place it. Where a rental dumpster goes is very important in order to avoid any possible damage and to avoid blocking access to vehicles and heavy equipment. The dumpster itself should not cause any damage at all but workers going to and from the dumpster can cause damage to your landscape or other sensitive areas of your property so make sure you consider that when deciding where to place it. Also, the spot that you eventually chose for the rental dumpster should be flat. Imagine that dumpster being on a sloped piece of land that happens to get very wet when it suddenly rains and somehow sliding down and hitting something!

Avoid Problems with the Neighbors

Whether you are working on your own property or someone else’s, you will certainly want to consider the neighbors as much as possible by keeping the noise you make as low as possible so you might want to keep the rental dumpster away from their property, especially if you are going to be dumping stuff in there that will smell. You would not want to upset the neighbors unnecessarily and have to deal with more problems than you already have.
