5 Most Common Homeowners' Dumpster Rental Mistakes

Dumpster rentals are an excellent option for removing rubbish, debris, and other waste materials, especially during construction projects or significant cleanouts. However, dumpster rentals can be a little confusing to the inexperienced or those unfamiliar with how dumpsters work in general. Knowing how to avoid common mistakes with a dumpster rental is essential for making the most of your rental from M&M Waste.

You're saving time and money when you rent a dumpster for your home or business. But homeowners make common mistakes when renting a dumpster. It may seem simple, but the wrong choice of the dumpster size, placement of the dumpster, and poor packing can lead to extra costs and headaches. Here’s how to avoid these common mistakes.

Choosing the Wrong Size Dumpster

One of the most common mistakes homeowners make when renting a dumpster is choosing an incorrect size. While selecting a smaller dumpster may seem common sense if you only need to dispose of construction debris or more oversized items such as furniture, this isn’t always necessary or cost-effective. M&M Waste offers bin rentals that can be placed on your property and picked up when they fill up with trash!

Poor Placement of the Dumpster

When selecting where to place your rented dumpster, remember that it should be placed somewhere accessible for pickup and delivery by the garbage removal company. If you set it too far from your house or business, they may not be able to reach it easily — meaning they won't be able to pick it up or deliver another one when it's time for disposal.

Packing the Dumpster Inefficiently

When packing up your belongings for a move or just cleaning out clutter, it can be tempting to pack everything into one large box or bag and throw them into the dumpster. However, this is not efficient and will cost more in terms of time and money. Instead, try packing smaller boxes for each room and then label them appropriately so that when you need something out of storage, you know exactly where it is at all times.

Tossing Forbidden Materials

When renting a dumpster, you must be mindful of what you can and cannot toss into the container. Some items, such as oil and paint cans, are prohibited due to their toxic nature. If you throw these items into the dumpster, it could result in an additional fee being charged to you due to contamination of the waste material. For this reason, it is best to check with your dumpster rental company before tossing anything into the bin to know what is allowed and not allowed in terms of waste removal materials.

Disregarding Fill Limits

When you rent a dumpster, you don't want to overfill it with waste because this can cause damage to the container. In some cases, the weight limit might be exceeded, which could result in an additional fee when it comes to disposal. You should always follow the instructions provided by your dumpster rental company and never exceed the weight limit specified by them.
