Both first-time dumpster renters and those who are already familiar with the process can benefit from the following tips:

  • Do some research: Before reserving a dumpster from anyone, it’s a good idea to read customer reviews online and conduct some research. Feedback from past customers can paint you a good picture of the dumpster rental company you might have in mind (work ethic, customer service skills, pricing, etc.).
  • Know before you call: The last thing you want to do is start a remodeling or cleanup project without having a dumpster on site. Make plans well ahead of your start date to have a dumpster dropped off. It will be helpful to the dumpster rental company if you know when you need the dumpster delivered, and how long you’ll likely need to use it. Writing this information down before you call ensures a smooth rental process.
  • Consider what you are tossing: Some dumpster rental companies might have restrictions on what you can throw away in their dumpsters. While some may offer a single option, others might rent out different types of bins for different varieties of debris. With this in mind, try to know the types of unwanted materials you need to toss before reserving a dumpster.
  • Not everything can be dumped: Most dumpster rental companies allow customers to toss all sorts of materials into their dumpsters. However, they or your county might not allow certain things to be disposed of this manner. For instance, hazardous waste items such as motor oil, other automotive fluids, paint, batteries and pesticides are often prohibited. To be absolutely sure you’re not breaking any rules, ask the dumpster rental company for a full list of what you can and cannot put in your dumpster.
  • Find a safe spot to store it: You will know ahead of time the size, dimension and weight of your chosen dumpster before it gets dropped off. Take these factors into account, as you want the dumpster to fit comfortably on your driveway, lawn, sidewalk or street without damaging it.
  • Place for convenience: Once you know where your dumpster will sit, the next step is to figure out the right spot for easy filling. A pro tip is to get your dumpster as close to your house or building as possible so you can toss materials out a window or from the rooftop directly into the unit. Proper and convenient placement also saves you time and energy, as it prevents the need to carry bulky items too far.
