A Few Reasons To Rent A Roll-Off Dumpster

Posted on

You probably have a large trash can, or a few of them, that your trash collection service empties on a regular basis. However, there are bound to be times when they are not enough. When you know that you are going to have a trash issue, call your service provider ahead of time and arrange to have a roll-off dumpster delivered on a temporary or permanent basis. Here are a few situations that could benefit from having more trash receptacles.

Construction or Remodeling

When you are going to be adding on to your home, or tearing things out for a remodeling project, having a roll-off dumpster is a necessity. You do not want to have construction materials scattered about your home or yard, creating a safety hazard. Construction workers are not likely to fit large pieces into the average trash bin, but they may toss them into a large dumpster. In addition, there may be some construction materials that should not be tossed into the regular trash. Items like paints, solvents and glues need to be put in a separate bin to keep them from going into a landfill. Ask for a special dumpster to handle these hazardous materials.


When your family is going to be moving to a new home, having a roll-off dumpster delivered to your current home a month beforehand can be a big help. As you start to pack things up for the move, you will find a lot of things that you no longer want or need. Instead of carting them to the new place and cluttering things up, just toss them in the dumpster. This will save you time and money on the move itself when you have less to put into the moving truck. You may want to have the dumpster moved to the new location too. This way, as you unpack all of your belongings, you have a place to put all the empty boxes.


If you notice that many households in your neighborhood have separate recycling bins, why not group together and have one large dumpster you can all use. You can decide which type of recycling bins you need and have them placed around the neighborhood. Everyone can chip in for the fees. This may encourage those who are not currently recycling to join in on the effort to help save the earth.

Roll-off dumpsters are available in many different sizes. If you only want one to take care of all the trash after the holidays, or after a special party or event, ask for a small one to be dropped off. However, if you have a large landscaping project planned, ask for a larger one. Of course, you can always ask for extra pick up days too. The important thing is to keep your trash contained so it can be easily picked up.
