When you have too much trash to handle, renting a dumpster is often the best route to go down, says Clean Junk Out’s Shunt Ovakyan.
Before hastily ordering one, however, you’ll need to think about a few things. How much trash will you have? If you’re cleaning out multiple rooms, you’re probably going to end up with quite a lot of stuff. Dumpsters don’t just come in one size so you need to figure this out before deciding which to get.
You also need to check that none of your waste will be classed as hazardous. According to Shunt, this can be anything from certain types of paint to electrical items. While there will be a dumpster company that accepts these kinds of things, check with staff before handing over your hard-earned cash.
When it comes to cost, there are a couple of things to consider. Some dumpster rental companies charge per weight while others charge based on volume. If you’re clearing out an outdoors space, you’ll probably want to go for a business that has the volume option as yard waste can be pretty heavy.
It’s clear that renting a dumpster is a vital move when clearing sections of your home. It’s hard enough sorting the waste. So why make extra work for yourself by taking responsibility for the removal too?
