Reasons For And Against Investing In A Dumpster Rental

Reasons For And Against Investing In A Dumpster Rental
A dumpster rental might be a great investment for your situation.

Have you ever driven past a house with a big dumpster outside and dreamed about renting one to quickly and easily get rid of your junk? That is the biggest reason most residential properties rent dumpsters: for one massive clean out.  And the truth is that a dumpster rental might be a great investment for your situation, but there are also many cases where a dumpster is not the best choice. Read on, and we will outline some examples.

Reasons For Dumpster Rental

There are some situations where renting a dumpster is an ideal choice. If you are about to start a major remodeling or demolition project, you will likely need a dumpster to get rid of the debris (most trash pickup won’t accept construction waste). If you’re moving, you will likely find there is a lot of stuff that has collected in your house that you don’t want to take with you. A dumpster is ideal for getting rid of any of those items that you can’t sell or give away.

Similarly, if you find yourself cleaning out a garage (even if you’re not moving), a dumpster can be useful in disposing of those old, broken, or otherwise unusable odds and ends. Similarly, any other house clean out can make use of a dumpster. If you’re doing spring cleaning or trying to make space for the family to visit or for a new child, having a dumpster makes it quick and easy to get rid of junk and make needed space.

Reasons Against Dumpster Rental

If your need for waste removal is not a one-time occurrence, a dumpster probably won’t fit your needs. Examples include businesses, restaurants, or offices that produce trash every day or nearly every day. In those cases, a trash collection service is a better option. Similarly, if you don’t have enough trash to fill a dumpster, it probably isn’t a good use of your money. The smallest dumpsters available still hold at least three pick-up trucks worth of trash. If you’re only going to fill it 1/3 full, you won’t get your money’s worth.

Similarly, if you only need to dispose of dirt, you should consider selling it instead. Many people and businesses can find a use for fill dirt, and many dumpster companies won’t accept it. Finally, if you have hazardous materials, a dumpster rental probably isn’t the right choice either. Many of these items are actually dangerous to dispose of in a landfill.  If you do decide to rent a dumpster, make sure you choose a company with all inclusive pricing so that there are not going to be hidden extra fees.
