Two of Your Concerns about Renting a Dumpster Addressed

Sam Gomez

There are few things that you can do that will generate more trash than a major construction or renovation project. To accommodate these loads of trash, you will need to invest in renting a dumpster. If you have never needed to do this in the past, you may need some questions answered to avoid problems that can negatively impact your experience with these services. In particular, the following couple of questions are routinely asked 

Is It Legal To Keep Your Dumpster on the Street?

Keeping a large dumpster on your property during renovation and construction projects may not always be a suitable option. This is particularly true for those that have elaborate landscaping or limited space on their property. When this is the case, you may have no other choice but to place the dumpster on the street. 

To legally keep a dumpster on the street, you will need to purchase a permit from the local government. Also, you will need comply with requirements that mandate clearly marking the dumpster for passing traffic. This is usually done with the use of bright reflective cones or signs. Failure to comply with these rules can result in expensive fines and civil liabilities if your dumpster causes an accident. 

How Do You Properly Load a Dumpster?

The way that a dumpster is loaded with waste is an important aspect that people often overlook. However, if you make the mistake of improperly loading a dumpster, the rental company will be unable to legally remove it from your property. When waste is improperly loaded into a dumpster, the weight will not be evenly distributed, which can cause the dumpster to be unstable during transport. 

Minimizing this risk properly is as simple as making sure that you keep the level of trash in the dumpster as even as possible until it is filled. Also, you must make sure that debris do not go past the fill line. If the dumpster is overfilled, the extra debris will have to be removed before the rental company will be able to transport the dumpster. 

Dumpster rentals are a necessary part of most construction and renovation projects, but many homeowners lack the experience needed to understand what renting these dumpsters will be like. By understanding the importance of getting a permit to have a dumpster on the street and how to properly load a it, you will be much better prepared to ensure that your dumpster rental goes as smoothly as possible.
