How To Use Dumpster Rental Services Effectively

Junk removal is a dirty job by nature, but somebody has to do it. It's an industry that accounts for more than $10 billion in expenditures according to the United States Bureau of Labor. Renting out a dumpster is one of the more practical ways that you can handle junk removal of your own. Here are some strategies related to renting a dumpster and using it effectively. 

Survey your junk and dumpster needs

First, you need to assess your own junk removal needs as they apply to your dumpster rental. There are several different dumpsters that address the various kinds of waste that you accumulate. Residential dumpsters collect any sort of household waste, from papers and garbage to furniture and electronics. Commercial dumpsters collect various bits of waste that a business disposes of on a daily basis. Construction dumpsters take in old roof shingles, wood and drywall, tile, and other sorts of building materials. 

In addition to knowing what to include in the dumpster, you should learn what not to include. Dumpster companies will tell you not to include things like motor oil, fuel, and paint, which can be flammable and contaminating to the environment. Some 3 billion people worldwide are affected by the widespread ramifications of ground and water pollution, so do your part to not contribute to it. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also has several regulations for what kinds of pollution should not be included in a dumpster. Following these laws will also help you to avoid getting fined. 

Sign a dumpster rental contract that you find fair and affordable

Go over the paperwork for your dumpster rental so you know exactly what you're signing up for. On average, a weekly dumpster rental complete with pickup service and permits will cost you $530 on average and may cost as much as $1,400 depending on where you live. Dumpster rental professionals can also provide you with flexible daily, weekly, or long-term contracts. 

Protect the dumpster and keep it secure and free of pests

It is also your responsibility to keep the dumpster free of pests. This is both difficult and necessary if your dumpster is filled with garbage and food items. Make sure that you place the dumpster no less than 50 feet from your building. Termites cause about $2 billion in damages each year. If you keep a dumpster filled with wood debris too close to your building, you might be inviting some of those damages. 

Place your dumpster somewhere out of the reach of the public so that you don't have to deal with vandalism or dumpster divers. You can get an insurance policy with the rental to account for any such damages that were out of your hands. 

These tips will help you greatly with your dumpster rental. To learn more contact a company such as Keith Krupenny & Son Disposal Service Inc.
