Tips to Follow When Using a Rental Dumpster

Renting a dumpster can be a great idea if you have a lot of items to dispose of. It can save you time and potentially money when compared with throwing away the items on your own. However, there are certain things you have to keep in mind if you want to prevent any problems from arising.

Choose an Ideal Location

The company you rent from may have an idea about where the ideal dumpster location would be, as they’ll need enough room for their truck to safely maneuver. Putting a dumpster too close to your house could put your home at risk of damage.

You have some responsibilities to take care of, too. Clear the space and make sure nothing will be in the truck’s way or in your way when you’re walking to the dumpster. In addition, you may need move a few things around. For example, you might need to park your vehicles in a different location if the dumpster will be blocking your garage.

Don’t Overfill the Dumpster

Loading too many items in your dumpster can create a dangerous situation. If it’s filled over capacity, items could easily slide out, even if the dumpster is stationery. When the company comes back to remove the dumpster, there’s an even greater chance that items will fall out during the transport process, and this can create a major safety hazard. For this reason, a company might not pick up your dumpster and/or you may be charged an additional fee if it’s filled too high.

Be Careful When Loading Your Dumpster

Items that go in dumpsters can include things with sharp corners and jagged edges. This is why you’ll need to wear protective gear when putting things in your dumpster. Heavy-duty gloves can be useful, as can protective eyewear. Also, you’ll want to protect your legs and feet just in case something falls. It would be smart to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes when you’re taking things to the dumpster.

Be Careful Who Has Access to the Dumpster

A final tip is to be mindful of who goes near a dumpster. A dumpster filled with bulky items may look like a fun climbing structure, but of course, the opposite is true. Children and pets should be kept away from the dumpster so they don’t accidentally touch something dangerous. They also need to stay clear of the dumpster when you’re throwing trash into it because items may fall on the ground in the process.

Renting a dumpster can be a strategic move that helps you with your clean-up project. You’ll need to pay attention to a few things in order to use your dumpster without any issues. Call A&A Recycling if you’d like more information about residential dumpster rentals in San Jose, CA.
