Things to Consider When Renting a Dumpster

When you have a large cleanup project, renting a dumpster is a necessity. Whether it’s construction, renovation or getting rid of everything that doesn’t “spark joy,” dumpsters make it convenient to get rid of a lot of waste all at once. However, your rental can run into some snags if you don’t plan ahead. If you’ve been considering renting a dumpster for your large waste removal project in Nashville, TN, read on to find out how to make the process as smooth as possible—then call Griffin Waste Services for affordable and reliable dumpster rental.

Deciding on the size

When choosing a dumpster size, bear in mind that most will not only come with a maximum volume capacity, but also maximum weights—and if you go over, most companies will charge you extra. If you’re getting rid of heavy construction materials, remember that rocks, drywall and other materials will be a lot heavier than getting rid of waterlogged old furniture and clothes from your shed.

Let your dumpster provider know the size and scope of your project, and they’ll be able to help you estimate the best size to pick.

Picking a location

Of course, you’ll need to figure out where to place the dumpster on your property. It needs to be an obstruction-free area, including overhanging trees and branches—we recommend leaving about 22 feet or more above the dumpster to ensure easy pickup. Consider how you’ll get into your home and garage, and how you’re going to get the waste out of your home and into the dumpster.

Finally, your driver will probably need to execute a three-point turn to pick up the dumpster from your property, so make sure there’s enough room to guarantee safe dumpster container removal in Nashville, TN.

Getting an estimate

When you call your dumpster rental company, talk to them about the estimated size, schedule and location—but also tell them what kind of project you’re doing. This will help them decide whether your dumpster size and location are appropriate, and they’ll be able to caution you about things that can’t be disposed of in the dumpster.

Permits and other considerations

Finally, you should call your city and see if you will need a permit to have the dumpster placed on your property or on the street. Some towns enforce time and location limits, so you’ll need to know exactly what is required of you in order to avoid hefty fines and other consequences.

Following these easy tips will make your dumpster rental quick, easy and hassle free.
