The Benefits Of Renting A Dumpster For Residential Use

by Claude Walters

Are you ready to rid your home of old items that you no longer have a need for? Is your house in desperate need of de-cluttering? Are you preparing for a move and need to downsize your junk? If any of these apply to you, you can benefit greatly from a dumpster rental. A dumpster calls in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of multiple uses. Most people use the dumpster solely for actual garbage but there are other items that can be tossed in the dumpster without breaking the rules provided by the rental company.

Benefits of Hiring a Dumpster Rental

There are many benefits to renting a dumpster for residential uses.


The biggest convenient is getting rid of large amounts of trash at once. You don't have to have multiple bags sitting on the curb or worry about it all fitting inside your regular outdoor trash receptacles. People who live in rural areas and use town dumps will enjoy not having to travel back and forth until their trash haul is done.


The variety of sizes for dumpsters is a big advantage. You can choose the size depending on the specific use. For instance, home remodeling projects will have an easier cleaning process when all the trash and debris goes into a large dumpster that is removed at the end of the remodel. People who have limited space will benefit from the smaller dumpsters while still getting the benefit of having huge amounts of garbage taken away.


Another big pro to using a dumpster is that they are very sturdy and secure. It is almost impossible to knock them over unless you hit them with a vehicle or extremely large object. The tops of the bins lock shut, too. It is totally secure against animals who try to get into the trash, like raccoons or cats. Regular garbage bins topple over very easy and when animals get into those, you will have ripped up garbage all over your property. It's your responsibility to pick it up. Dumpsters completely eliminate that disgusting task.


Renting a dumpster is convenient and always a great idea for trash removal. However, make sure you pay attention to the list of prohibited items that the rental company has set. You can never throw away: batteries, mattresses, railroad ties, motor oil, treated wood, paints or wood stains, chemicals, or contaminated materials. Always double-check what you are tossing isn't on the list.
