Three Reasons Why Renting A Dumpster Might Be Right For You

You've likely seen one of the popular hoarding reality shows on television. They always have at least one dumpster sitting there waiting for the reluctant hoarder to start depositing their pile of excess. But you don't have to be officially declared a hoarder to take advantage of rental dumpsters. Renting a dumpster can be the perfect solution for several situations.

You're Having A Party

Whether it's a backyard wedding, a graduation party, or a neighborhood block party, chances are good that you will generate a lot of garbage. Many communities allow their residents to only put out two bags of garbage for pickup each week. Other communities make you buy garbage bags from them, which can add up quickly, and you may still be assessed a surcharge if you go over your bag limit. Empty takeout containers, beer and soda boxes, paper plates, plastic utensils, drinking cups, decorations, and wrapping paper can all quickly add up to a lot of garbage.

You've Experienced A Severe Storm

Bad thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods can all cause havoc to a home. For example, if a storm rolled through, dropping torrential rain, and your home experienced flooding as a result, you need to get the ruined stuff out as quickly as possible. Many times, all the carpeting will need to be pulled up; the paneling or drywall removed; and upholstered furniture, mattresses, box springs, and area rugs all thrown out. You will likely have stray items that ended up resting in your yard as well. Renting a dumpster will allow you to get everything out and disposed of right away.

You're Doing A Do-It-Yourself Remodeling Project

When you hire a contractor to do a job around your house for you, they are responsible for removing all the old building materials and hauling them off. If you're doing the renovating yourself, you're going to need to go somewhere with the stuff. The garbage man won't take it. If you own a trailer, you could load it up, secure everything so it doesn't come loose, and make repeated trips to the dump. However, this certainly won't save you time, and it most likely won't save you any money, either.

When you call to rent a dumpster, make sure you have an idea of where you want to put it. Some municipalities may require you to get a permit, especially if it will be curbside rather than in your driveway. You will also need to have a good idea of the kinds of things you will be disposing of so the dumpster representative gives you what you need. Companies like Faztec Industries can answer any questions you might have.

Dumpster Rental and Clean-Out Tips

When I inherited my grandmother's house, I had no idea that there were so many things stored in her attic, basement, and garage. The only way that I could clear everything out was to rent a large dumpster and a storage unit. Many things I kept and put into storage, but there was a lot of clutter that I just needed to dispose of. The dumpster rental was such a great way to go, but it took a little bit of planning. I didn't know there were so many different sizes and styles of dumpsters. Once the project was finished, I decided to create this site to help others choose the right dumpster for their cleanup tasks.
