How to Maximize Space in Your Roll-Off Dumpster
Whatever you need it for, Mile High Roll-Off Waste Systems in Denver offers our strategies for how to maximize space in your roll-off dumpster. A roll-off dumpster is a great way to get rid of debris from a project, remodel or demolition but if you don’t utilize the space in your dumpster well you won’t get as much out of the money you put into it.
So let’s talk about strategies that will come in handy in a couple of different cases. Two common uses for roll-off dumpsters are getting rid of construction debris or cleaning out a house. So let’s look at what to do in each of these cases and how to maximize space in your roll-off dumpster.
Construction Debris Strategy
Construction debris usually consists of things like sheets of plywood or sheetrock, 2x4s, broken tiles, shingles and possibly a few larger items like cabinets or bathroom fixtures like tubs or sinks. Just throwing these items haphazardly into a roll-off container will leave large unused gaps and is not the best way to make the most of the available space inside the dumpster.
When it comes to how to maximize space in your roll-off dumpster, it is best to start with a plan. Be aware of the large items that you need to put in the container and keep them in mind as you begin loading. Depending on what you’ve got, those large items may need to go in first, or it might work better to load them later on but at least have a plan for where they will fit best.
If you have large sheets of something, like plywood or siding, that can be a good place to start. Lay the sheets along the bottom of the roll-off dumpster, and you’ll see that they hardly take up any space. Next 2×4’ or anything else that is long and straight should go in (stacked neatly of course). As you load, you will inevitably start to see pockets of unused space developing, that’s where you can toss small pieces of debris to fill in every possible space.
House Cleanout Strategy
The idea is similar to what we’ve already described above, but the type of items are quite different. In-house cleanouts, you are often dealing with a lot more large, strangely shaped objects like furniture or exercise equipment. Like with construction debris, the best strategy is to make a plan before you start putting anything in the dumpster. While you’re making your plan figure out what items can be broken down into smaller pieces that can be used to fill in the pockets that inevitably appear during the loading process.
