Deciding the Size of Dumpster Rental you need
When preparing to make a request for a dumpster rental you should understand the size you may need & this is depending on what material you need to add in the dumpster. Typically when there is any dirt or soil you will need a 20 yd dumpster or smaller as we rarely to never allow the dirt and soil in our 25 yd and 30 yd dumpster rentals because of the weight issues. Dirt & soil make our larger dumpsters too heavy to haul so we ask that you choose a 10 to 15 yard dumpster when you have alot of loose soil or dirt that will be added into it. Also whenever you are undecided on what size of dumpster rental you may need we are always available to help you choose the perfect size dumpster for your job or home project.
Preparing for Arrival of your Dumpster Rental
It is important that the delivery driver has easy access to your location and that it isn't blocked when the dumpster rental is being delivered. One thing to keep in mind is that if you plan on having the dumpster placed on the street it may be necessary to get a permit from your neighborhood or city to make sure you don't receive a ticket or citation for the dumpster rental placement.
Make sure that if the dumpster is going to be placed on your property that you don't pick an area with soft ground as the weight added to the dumpster will cause it to sink in. Also if the surface is not sturdy enough the roll off dumpster can cause damage to it as it gets filled. Even if you are having the canister placed on your asphalt or concrete driveway it is a good idea to have some plywood available to place under the roll off containers wheels to help prevent any damage to your driveway.
Once you start loading up the dumpster it is recommended that you don't try and fill it up to the brim. We recommend that you not fill up the dumpster rental more than 80% of the way full & not to go higher than the dumpster walls. As the driver will need to cover the canister as they transported to the landfill.
