3 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Renting a Dumpster from a Roll Off Dumpster Service

Getting a roll-off dumpster rental isn’t something you do every day. So, if you think you need a dumpster rental it might be a good idea to take a step back and ask yourself the following 3 questions before moving forward.

Do You Need a Roll Off Dumpster Rental?

The answer to this question depends on several variables. How much stuff do you need to get rid of? Can you sell, donate or recycle any of it? Are there any other ways to dispose of the refuse you are talking about here? For example, if you have a bunch of yard waste, can you compost it?

After you go through the junk you planned on getting rid of so far, is there still enough to justify getting a dumpster rental?

What Size of Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Do You Need?

This is a tricky question for some people but our article: How to Figure Out What Roll Off Dumpster Size to Get can definitely help you answer this question. The bottom line here is if you need to get rid of more than what you could load in the back of a pick-up truck bed, then you probably need to rent a roll off dumpster, or at the very least a dumpster-in-a-bag.

Get all of the junk you want to dispose out in the open so you can get a good image of how much is there, and then you should be able to estimate the size of the dumpster you need.

Why Do You Want a Roll Off Dumpster Rental?

Why you need a roll off dumpster is probably the most important question to answer because it will have an impact on what type of dumpster you will need. If you are disposing of old concrete from jackhammering an old patio, you need to have a heavy-duty construction waste dumpster. If you are trying to get rid of yard waste, you may be able to pack it all in a dumpster-in-a-bag.

The most important thing about getting a dumpster rental is to be honest about these reasons. If you you are throwing out a bunch of old furniture when you really planned on dumping the concrete waste in there. The dumpster rental company might not be able to haul it away because it is too heavy (in the case of 30 and 40-yard dumpster sizes). This is why only 10 and 20-yard dumpster rentals are used for heavier loads such as concrete, masonry, stone, and dirt.

You should also make sure that you get the dumpster size you need so you don’t have to “mix the loads.” Load mixing is what happens if you rent a dumpster to get rid of that old furniture, but then decide to throw in some garden waste and household trash. The load is now contaminated because it cannot be unloaded efficiently. Different types of loads have different disposal destinations, so the dumpster rental company needs to know what is being picked up so they can quote the rental accurately. If you fail to do this, you will be hit with additional fees for not following the dumpster rental guidelines.
