5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Rental Dumpster

Dumpsters come in all shapes and sizes, which can make it hard to find the right one for your needs the first time through. The best way to start narrowing down the field to a strong selection is to establish your own budget, schedule, and requirements first. Once you have your key parameters set, you can start focusing on some of these key considerations that should guide your dumpster rental decisions.

1. Type of Waste

Not all dumpster and waste removal services handle all types of materials. That’s why you should start your search for services by carefully considering the type of materials you are dealing with. There are many types of hazardous materials that have special handling and disposal requirements, ranging from things like asbestos-based insulation to lightbulbs to lubricants and aerosols.

2. Volume of Material

The next thing you need to consider is the amount of material slated for disposal. You probably won’t get the estimate perfectly right, but you should try to get a good idea of the volume required. It’s usually best to err on the side of caution and get a bigger dumpster or a disposal schedule to accommodate the volume demands.

3. Duration of Project

There’s a big logistical difference between moving a lot of material in a few days or a little bit over a period of weeks or months, even if it’s the same amount of total work. Again, it’s usually better to be cautious when in doubt and leave yourself more room than you think you need. Many dumpster services also offer options for extending or changing service as needed.

4. Accessibility and Size

Accessibility can be a big issue in some properties, especially in urban environments where space is at a premium. The ability to safely place the dumpster without conflicting with local laws or community regulations is another important consideration when choosing a solution. Be sure to do your research about restrictions on placing dumpsters on your property.

5. Environmental Impact

Dumpsters also need to be placed in a way that preserves environmental safety. This includes ensuring that the container will keep all hazardous materials inside to avoid contamination of local soil and water. It should also be placed to avoid impacting stormwater management infrastructure, including downspouts and sewer grates.
