A dumpster is a vital tool for safe waste management, especially for projects that involve handling a lot of waste. Whether you are tearing down an old building or clearing out your garage, M&M Waste can help you find the right dumpster rental for your need. Dumpsters come in various sizes, styles, and shapes, ensuring that your waste management needs are met. When you rent a dumpster, it’s important to know the right way to load it for maximum space use and avoid the extra costs of renting another. Below are some of the ways you can maximize the use of your dumpster rental.
Know What’s Allowed And What Isn’t
It is important to familiarize yourself with the various types of dumpsters so that you can load them with only the acceptable waste. Most of the dumpsters provided by M&M Waste can handle various types of waste such as plaster, drywall, roofing shingles, and other types of construction trash.
However, it’s not advisable to load your dumpster rental with stains, paints, hazardous material like pesticides and cleaners, batteries, computer screens, and other electronic trash. It is advisable to consult the dumpster company before renting a dumpster to determine if the waste you intend to load complies with their regulations.
Load Up Evenly
Loading a dumpster is already hard enough without dealing with the potential risk of an injury. If you load the dumpster with heavy trash on one side, then it’s likely to become unstable and can easily topple over. The experts at M&M Waste recommend distributing heavy waste like bricks, appliances, and many others at the bottom of your dumpster rental.
Once you have piled the heavy waste at the bottom, the next step involves placing the lighter waste on top. Most people throw everything inside the dumpster, but taking time to sort the waste by size goes a long way in ensuring you get the most out of your dumpster rental.
Bag Lighter Items
Ensuring that garbage bags are on sight is important and allows you to bag light waste as you proceed with your project. If there are lighter items such as documents, clothing, and Styrofoam, it’s advisable to put them in a bag to prevent them from being blown away on a windy day. We recommend bagging because it frees up dumpster space, allowing you to maximize your dumpster rental. It would help if you considered loading a dumpster like a jigsaw puzzle to help you load it effectively.
Once you are done loading your dumpster rental, it needs to be hauled to another location. If you have filled it to the brim, it can hurt someone as it’s being towed to the recycling yard or disposal point. You should consult the professionals at M&M Waste to find out the downside of brimming a dumpster and avoid the extra cost of having to haul the dumpster yourself.
If you come up with a well-structured plan for your waste, it will make your project run smoothly once you rent a dumpster. Contact us today, and talk to our expert about finding the right dumpster for your needs.
