If you are undertaking a home renovation or cleaning up after a burst pipe or natural disaster, we want you to know the ABC’s of dumpster rental. It’s likely that you will be accumulating a lot of waste in the process which your normal curbside pickup services won’t remove. In that case, renting a roll off dumpster from us here at Mile High Roll-Off Waste Systems can be a great option for proper disposal. So, before you rent, take a look at the tips and information we provide here.
Being aware of a few things beforehand can greatly ease or prevent any unnecessary stress during the waste disposal process. Since waste disposal is not necessarily on anyone’s list of fun things to do, we think you probably would appreciate any easing or stress prevention that is possible.
The first thing to be aware of is permits. It is generally unnecessary to get a permit to have a temporary dumpster on your property. However, this is not true in all cases and you should make sure to investigate your situation beforehand.
For example, there may be rules to follow or permissions you need to get. This is particularly the case if there is a chance the dumpster will be located on public or shared land. Get those details worked out beforehand to save yourself a headache later of somebody getting upset with you.
Also, be sure to check the covenants for your neighborhood. Some communities require you to seek permission from your homeowner’s association (HOA) before setting a big dumpster in your yard.
Generally, dumpster rental companies will charge you for the amount of time you plan to use the container. To save yourself money, and maybe even to avoid conflict with your neighbors, you should try to rent the container for the least amount of time possible. Plan to have it dropped off when you have time to get the work done.
Just because you rent a dumpster doesn’t mean you can throw anything you want into it. Talk to one of our disposal experts and we will explain what you can and can’t put into the dumpster. If there is anything that you’re unsure of, don’t hesitate to ask for clarifications. Many cities have regulations on certain kinds of paints, light bulbs, chemicals, batteries, and more so you should be aware of what is in place in your area to avoid any unnecessary fines or other problems.
