With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start planning for those big spring cleaning projects. Whether you’re decluttering your home, renovating a room or two, or just doing general spring cleaning, a dumpster rental can make the process much easier. Here are some tips to help you make the most out of your dumpster rental this spring.
1. Size Matters
Before you rent a dumpster, it’s important to consider your project’s size and the weight of the items you plan on disposing of. This will help you choose the right size dumpster for your needs. For example, if you are planning on getting rid of some furniture, or bigger home pieces, you need a dumpster that will fit all of it, as well as the team to load it.
2. Research Your Options
Make sure to research local dumpster rental companies to find the one that best meets your needs and budget. Be sure to inquire about any additional fees or services you may need, such as delivery and pickup. With Dumpster Mule, we offer same-day delivery and pick-up at your convenience. We are here to work with you to meet your needs and budget.
3. Prepare Your Space
Before the dumpster arrives, you’ll need to make sure you have ample space for it. If the dumpster is placed on the street, you’ll need to check with your local government to see if a permit is required. Our “Mules” are designed to fit nearly everywhere. While they can hold up to 8 truckloads of items, it can fit within just 1 parking spot! It has wheels, so you won’t have to worry about permanent placement or even damage to your property.
4. Get Organized
Before you start filling the dumpster, make sure you have a plan for sorting your items. This will help you be more efficient and ensure that you’re disposing of items the right way. Gather your items, and separate them into piles based on size and weight. This will play a part in how you load your dumpster.
5. Safety First
Make sure to wear proper safety gear when handling heavy items and disposing of hazardous materials. Most companies have their own rules and regulations to what you can and cannot put into the dumpster, so it is also important to look and see if you can rid all of your items in one dumpster.
6. Tie Up Loose Ends
When the dumpster is full, make sure to secure the lid or tarp it off to avoid a potential mess. With us, we have a convenient netting that will be placed and secured over your dumpster. This helps us keep your items secure until we reach the dumping grounds, and keep our streets clean.
Following these tips can make the most out of your dumpster rental this spring. Whether you’re decluttering your home, renovating a room or two, or just doing general spring cleaning, a dumpster rental can make the process much easier. So get organized, do your research, and enjoy a stress-free spring cleaning season!
