Protecting Your Driveway From Dumpster Damage

Are you finally getting that new kitchen you’ve been wanting? Is it finally time to spruce up your master bedroom? No matter what kind of project you are working on, it’s going to create a lot of waste. Meaning, you’ll most likely need to rent a dumpster from a dumpster company such as M&M Waste!

Dumpster rentals are an easy and efficient way to dispose of and remove any large amount of waste you produce from anything you are doing in your home, especially a home renovation. But, having a dumpster rental in your driveway isn’t as easy as you may think. Dumpsters are large and very heavy, and if they are not put onto your driveway properly, it can cause some serious damage to your driveway, creating more issues for you in the long run.

If you are planning to do some home renovation projects in the near future and you need to rent a dumpster from M&M Waste, here are our team’s top tips for protecting your driveway from dumpster damage…

4 Ways To Protect Your Driveway from Dumpster Damage

  • Cover the area with wood

One of the easiest things you can do for your driveway when putting a dumpster rental on it covering the area you are placing it with wood or some other material. Determine where you are putting your dumpster rental, and make sure you have enough wood to cover the area, while also making sure the wood you put down is level with the ground and with the other planks.

  • Distribute the weight evenly

When putting waste into your dumpster rental, make sure not to place everything in one section of it. Evenly distribute your waste throughout the dumpster so one spot isn’t heavier than the other, causing it to affect your driveway. If there is more pressure in one certain area, you may notice an intent on your driveway when M&M Waste comes and picks up your dumpster rental.

  • Check the dumpster for holes

One of the first things you should do when you rent a dumpster is checking it for holes. Depending on what kind of waste you are throwing into it, chemicals or liquids can leak out of any holes your dumpster rental may have, causing your driveway to soften up in that one spot. Make sure to fill or cover all holes so you don’t even have to worry about this.

  • Put it on flat land

M&M Waste is going to deliver your dumpster to you, so when they come to drop it off, make sure they put it in an area that is level and flat. This way, the weight of the dumpster will be evenly dispersed and you won’t have any weird indentations when the dumpster is removed.
