The birds are chirping, the sun is hanging around longer, and the days are getting warmer, that means that spring is on the horizon. Spring means spring cleaning for many people and there is no better way to tackle large projects in your home than renting a dumpster. Renting a dumpster allows you to do a significant amount of work quickly and efficiently and to safely dispose of your debris. When renting a dumpster for your home projects, you should be prepared. How should you prepare for a home dumpster rental?
How you Should Prepare for a Home Dumpster Rental
Renting a dumpster for your Ohio or Florida home is an efficient way to get rid of waste around your household. Before your dumpster is delivered you should prepare for the home dumpster rental.
Make Space and a Clear Path: Plan where you will have your dumpster placed. Try to choose a central spot so you can quickly dispose of waste from different rooms and locations.
Create a clear path to work along and haul junk by. It may be beneficial to remove built in objects around your home that may get in the way, if there will be a lot of trips back and forth to the dumpster.
Choose the Right Dumpster Size: There are numerous dumpster sizes. Before you rent a dumpster, know what size dumpster is right for your project. You don’t want to get your project underway and fill the dumpster without finishing. It is typically best to select a larger container than you think you may need.
You can talk to the dumpster rental company, prior to renting a dumpster, to get advice on what size dumpster they think will be best suited for your project.
Create a Plan for Filling the Dumpster: Dumpsters have a limited amount of space, so when you are renting a dumpster, be sure to think ahead about the best way to use the space.
Come up with a plan for how you are going to fill the dumpster and make sure that all people, who will be hauling to the dumpster, are aware of the plan. You may wish to keep all debris toward the back to start, filling it first and then working toward the front of the dumpster. By having a plan, you will not have to continuously rearrange things in the dumpster to create space.
Plan for Time: Dumpster rentals usually are for a limited time period. Before your dumpster arrives, you should have a well-defined plan and strategy for what you want and need to accomplish during the rental period.
Organize your schedule and set some deadlines for yourself for what sections of the job you want finished by specified times. This will allow you to make the most out of your dumpster rental time and to likely be able to complete all the work before your rental time is up.
Be Aware of and Avoid Prohibited Items: All dumpster rentals have a list of prohibited items that must be avoided from being disposed of in the dumpster. Be familiar with the prohibited items for your dumpster and adhere to the rental company’s policies.
Common items prohibited from being thrown out, include: paint, motor oil, electronics, batteries, prescription drugs, certain light bulbs, lawn chemicals, fireworks, tires, asbestos, and gasoline. Be sure you read your dumpster rental guidelines for items you can not get rid of in your dumpster, so you are not in violation of your rental contract.
