Construction projects, cleanup projects, parties, or any other organization initiatives typically require some kind of dumpster rental. These rental services allow people to have industrial grade trash services without having to put forth the capital investment in large metal dumpsters.
Here is what you need to know about dumpster rentals if you think you may need the service.
What Are Dumpster Rental Services?
These are rental services that will bring a dumpster (usually a large one), to your home or business. The rental typically lasts for a set period of time such as a few days or weeks and the lessor can fill the dumpster with items like construction waste, trash, unwanted items, and pretty much anything they want.
Rentals can be large 75-yard dumpsters which are about as long as a large moving truck. They can also be smaller about the size of a typical dumpster you would see behind a store. Basically, the company brings the dumpster and leaves it. You fill it up with trash and then the company comes and takes it away.
How Much Do Dumpster Rentals Cost?
Dumpster rentals range in cost depending on the size of the dumpster and the length of time you rent it for. Large 75-yard dumpsters kept for a week or more can be several hundred dollars while smaller more traditional dumpsters may only cost a couple hundred dollars.
There are also less expensive canvas options that can hold 500 to 1000 pounds worth of trash but take up an area no larger than a small car. These can run you less than 100 dollars in some cases.
What Are Common Uses for Dumpster Rentals?
Like we mentioned earlier, you can rent a dumpster for any reason but people tend to get them for cleanup projects involving construction, remodeling, or cleaning out a home while moving. Contractors, for example, may throw out portions of a home that were demolished. People moving to a new home may be purging a lot of old stuff and use a dumpster for that purpose. Still, others may be cleaning out a home where items are no longer needed such as after a death in the family or if there was a hoarding situation.
Dumpster rentals are great on a lot of levels. Not only is it convenient to have someone haul your trash away but it is easy to have a lot of space to throw out anything you need to without worry.
