3 Crucial Considerations When Renting Dumpsters For Renovation Projects

Posted on

Are you nearly finished with your plans for an upcoming renovation project? Have you figured out yet what you're going to do with all of the leftover construction waste that will be the result of this project? A lot of people keep pushing this sort of thing to the back of their mind where it winds up forgotten until the actual renovation begins. Once the project begins, it can feel even more overwhelming to deal with the mess that is being generated by the construction work. By getting ahead of things now, you'll be able to ensure that you aren't overwhelmed by this when the actual project starts. Renting a dumpster is going to be the easiest and most simple way to get rid of the waste, but there are a few considerations first. These include the following.

Scope of project: If you're just renovating one room then you're going to need less waste disposal abilities than if you were to be renovating your entire home. If you're just updating a bathroom, you're not going to need one of the gigantic dumpsters to cart the waste away. On the other hand, if you're going to be doing several rooms, then a small dumpster simply won't cut it. If you're using a contractor but they're not directly arranging for waste disposal, ask them what size dumpster they expect will be needed for the job.

Materials to be disposed of: Different companies have different allowances in regard to what they will and will not allow in their dumpsters. For instance, some may rent you a dumpster that is entirely for "green" waste—tree trimmings, lawn clippings, etc. Others might have special procedures available in the event that asbestos is found and still others may not want any sort of construction waste at all. Find out ahead of time what is and is not allowed so that you're using the right dumpster for your needs.

Length of project: Depending on where you rent one from, dumpsters may be rented for just a few days, a couple of weeks, or even on a semi-permanent basis. Before renting any dumpster, make sure that you know how long the rental period is for and what happens if you need to extend it for any reason. For instance, if your renovation project is expected to last two or three weeks, a rental period of one month should be sufficient in most cases. But if there are project delays, you'll most likely want to keep the dumpster on your property for at least a little more time in order to fully dispose of the waste.
