An increasingly popular task that many homeowners are taking on is clearing out their home. Some homeowners are going with a fully minimalist lifestyle while others simply want to donate and get rid of items that are causing clutter in the home. Dumpster rentals are popular for helping with this task for various reasons including making the disposal of items easier. If you are considering this type of rental, here are some tips to keep in mind. 

Dumpster Placement and Delivery

The first tip for using a dumpster rental for clearing out your home deals with delivery and placement. The ideal option is to have the dumpster placed on your driveway. This gives it a stable foundation and keeps the dumpster out of the way of oncoming traffic. The issue with this is that you may not be able to remove and place the items in your dumpster rental easily if it is on the driveway. For this reason, you should consider the location of the home that will be the primary removal spot, such as a back door or side door. Keep in mind, dumpsters can damage the lawn and landscapes so make sure you consider that in the placement as well.

Types of Dumpsters

You may believe there is only one type of dumpster. The truth is, you can get dumpsters that are for a variety of disposable materials. For example, you may have very little debris and have more in the way of donation items like toys and clothes. For that circumstance, you will want a dumpster rental that is specifically for donations. The rental can then be emptied by the charity of choice and the rental then picked up by the rental company. Other options include recycling, hazardous waste disposal, and construction debris dumpsters. 

Walk-In Options

If you will have larger items such as furniture or large bags of items, then you may want to consider a walk-in option. Walk-in dumpster rentals have a door on the side of the dumpster itself. This allows you to walk items into the dumpster for removal. It can help reduce damage to items that may be donated and can make disposing of large items easier. You also reduce the chances of damage during disposal to other items and injury to yourself since you can avoid unsafe disposal practices.

When you are ready to start your home clearing out project, contact your local dumpster rental service. They can help you with the right size dumpster for your needs. They can also help with questions about delivery, setup, and removal when your project is done. If you have specific needs, such as possible hazardous waste removal or recycling removal, make sure to let the contractor know at the time of your consultation.
