How to Rent A Dumpster For A Bathroom Renovation

Renovation can be a daunting task. From demolition to reinstallation, there's lots of junk, and we're talking about the kind of junk that takes up space and stinks. You have a long-term project ahead, and you need to rent a dumpster that meets all your requirements. That's where this guide from M&M Waste comes in.

Typical Bathroom Renovation Debris

When you're doing bathroom renovations and fixtures, it can create a lot of debris you can't just throw away. Whether it's from demolishing walls, removing the toilet, or just trying to clean your bathtub, this can lead to some trash and junk you need help with. It's for this reason that you should consider renting a dumpster! Dumpsters are great for keeping your renovation area clean and safe while relieving any pressure you might have regarding throwing things away.

During a typical bathroom renovation, the debris created by your contractor will vary based on the scope of the renovation. However, there is one common denominator for all bathroom renovations: dust. Bathroom dust can be particularly hazardous; it contains mold and many other contaminants.

Demolishing a bathroom can generate large amounts of debris, including drywall, wood panels, and subflooring. If this material must be disposed of entirely during demolition, consider renting a larger dumpster that can accommodate more volume. However, plan to salvage certain materials from demolition (such as copper piping or old bathtubs). It may be optional to rent such a large dumpster to contain all debris generated during demolition.

When it comes to remodeling a bathroom, many different materials will need to be removed from the space before it can be appropriately renovated. Typical debris includes the following:

  • Carpet
  • Tile
  • Flooring
  • Bathtub/Shower
  • Sink/Fixtures
  • Plasterboard & Drywall
  • Wooden Flooring

Dumpster Location

One of the first things you should do when considering dumpsters for your Bathroom Renovation project is to determine where you want to place them. Ideally, this location should be close enough to the work area that workers can easily move materials from one place to another but far enough away from neighboring properties, so that noise and dust aren't an issue for those nearby.

Dumpster Rental Size Options

Once you have decided where to place your dumpsters, you will need to decide what container size you would like. Most Bathroom Renovation projects require at least two dumpsters: one for garbage and one for recyclable materials such as cardboard boxes and insulation. You may also want a third dumpster if many hazardous materials need disposal or if significant construction debris is left over after demolition.

The size of the dumpster depends on several factors, including the size of the bathroom, how many people need access to the bathroom during construction, and what materials will be used during construction. If only one person can access the bathroom at a time (and they don’t need too much space), then a small dumpster may suffice. If multiple people have access to it at once (which would allow them to carry more material out), then a larger dumpster would be needed. Below is a simple guide for what size you may need.

  • 6 Cubic Yards for a small half bathroom
  • 10 Cubic Yards for a larger bathroom or more than one bathroom
  • 13 Cubic Yards for two or three bathrooms
  • 16 Cubic Yards for more elaborate renovations of multiple bathrooms
  • 20 Cubic Yards for four or five bathrooms
