Many people are unsure as to whether they require a dumpster or not.
Even though dumpster rentals are not cheap, yet they are hassle-free and tend to be very helpful when you are renovating your house or your business space. You do produce a lot of waste every day and if you feel like your space generates a lot of waste which might not be contained in a regular sized bin, then you should maybe consider renting a dumpster.
Factors to Consider Before Renting a Dumpster
There are a few factors that you need to think bout before you rent a dumpster. The important considerations are:
- Type of waste
- State or municipal requirements
- Segregation options
The size of your dumpster is an important consideration because dumpsters come in different sizes and you should rent one that either fits in the alley next to your shop or your house driveway. You should also consider the manner in which you want to sort your waste.
While some dumpsters have built-in segregation, others are open containers wherein you can use your own plastic containers to segregate. Consider the type of waste that you want to dispose off. For instance, dry waste has to be segregated from wet waste. Respective State rules in Missouri regarding waste segregation that limit the usage of the dumpster also needs to be considered. For instance, dumpster regulations in some cities require that you obtain a permit before placing your rented dumpster on a public alley.
Determining the Size of the Dumpster
Consider the size of the dumpster before renting one. Our company offers roll-off containers of various sizes that are suitable for different types of construction projects. The size of the dumpster depends on the amount of waste that you will be generating.
For instance, if you generate 30 yards of trash, you will need a dumpster that is roughly around 30 ft x8 ft x 6 ft high. If you are unsure about the amount of waste that you will create, ask our support staff to recommend a correct size of the dumpster, while keeping the waste amount in mind. The rental costs depend upon the size of the dumpster. Thus, you need to be sure about the size of the dumpster so as to pay the proper costs, and so that you do not have to pay excess or add-on charges.
