If you are remodeling a home or cleaning out a rental property because tenants left a lot of their stuff in the home, renting a dumpster is usually the best way to quickly get rid of the garbage and other waste. However, there is a wide variety of sizes of dumpster rentals and it is crucial to be sure that you are choosing the right one. Therefore, you will usually be asked several questions when arranging for your temporary dumpster and you will be able to save a lot of time by being prepared with the right answers. 

Where Will The Dumpster Be Used?

This seems like a simple question that actually has several different answers. The first answer is obviously going to be your physical address and the second will be where it will be placed at that property. That is important because some areas require a permit if it will be placed on the street and you will usually need to provide the rental company with that permit before they can drop off your dumpster.

Is There Additional Space Around Where The Dumpster Will Go For Delivery And Pickup?

If the unit will be placed in the yard or on a driveway, you should also know that dropping off or picking up the dumpster requires several feet of clearance around it. The size of the unit and the policies of the company with whom you will be working will determine how many feet, but at least a few feet are usually necessary so that the truck can easily access the unit.

How Big Should The Dumpster Be?

The most common dumpsters available today vary from 10-40 cubic yards. If you accidentally underestimate the size you need and the company needs to pick up the filled one and provide a new one earlier than expected, you should expect to pay an extra fee. Therefore, you need to know how much garbage you will be disposing of.

For example, you will usually be able to get rid of the waste from remodeling a bathroom in a 10-cubic-yard dumpster. Otherwise, measure the appliances, walls, and anything else you will be removing to make an educated guess as to how big your dumpster should be.

In conclusion, renting a dumpster (from a local outlet such as Parks & Sons of Sun City, Inc.) to dispose of trash from a remodeling job or to clean out a rental property is a quick and efficient way to get the job done. By having all of the pertinent information about your needs for garbage disposal before making contact with the rental company, you will be able to save time and get the dumpster more quickly.
