What Are You Getting a Dumpster Rental For?

What are you getting a dumpster rental for?–Is the most important question you can ask yourself when getting a roll-off dumpster rental. And you have to be honest with yourself and the roll-off dumpster company you rent from to avoid additional charges or getting the wrong sized dumpster for the job.

You will not fool the dumpster rental company if you mix in a little yard waste with your construction waste because they remove everything out of the dumpster that you put in there, so they will know if you have contaminated the load with different types of garbage.

Construction Waste

When renting a dumpster to eliminate construction waste, you need to know what materials you are throwing out for two reasons.

  • Weight– Some construction waste, such as brick, concrete, and asphalt shingles, take up little space in the dumpster but are extremely heavy. For this reason, you shouldn’t rent larger dumpsters such as 30- or 40-yard dumpsters to get rid of large quantities of it because the waste management company will not be able to lift dumpsters that have a significant amount of these materials in them.
  • Hazardous Waste– A lot of construction waste can be considered hazardous because it is generated from painting, sealing, staining, or caulking (to name a few). This waste needs to be dealt with differently than other forms of construction waste.

Hazardous Waste

The dumpster rental company must deal with hazardous waste differently, depending on what it is, and there are some limitations on what they can take and how they have to deal with it. There are extra costs for the waste management company for handling waste, and you have to pay a premium to get rid of it.

Adding hazardous waste to a dumpster “contaminates” a load of standard waste, so they should be kept separate. If you have questions about dealing with hazardous waste, contact your dumpster rental company before getting a rental quote.

Electronic Waste

Most dumpster rental companies allow electronic waste to be included with “regular” kinds of household waste. But always check with them to avoid any unnecessary penalties or rental fees.

Always Be Honest

As long as you are upfront and transparent with your dumpster rental company, you will get a fair quote for disposing of the waste within it. They will know if you try to throw out something other than what you mentioned when getting a quote for the dumpster rental. Sometimes things come up in the middle of a clean-up or renovation project, and you may be afraid of contaminating a load, give your rental company a call and ask for advice on how to proceed. They’ll be happy to answer your questions and advise you on the best way to deal with the situation.
