As much as many people enjoy the end of winter, some people dread Spring because of all the cleaning they have to do. Spring cleaning usually means dusting and wiping down everything in the house. If you need to clean out your garage or attic, that will take even more time. Disposing of your trash and junk can be a complex process.
You can schedule a particular pickup with the city, but you need to have everything out the night before. All of your garbage needs to be in bags or cans. You can’t set that out if you have any debris from a home remodeling project.
Getting everything to a landfill is another option, but it’s not the easiest thing to do. You need the right vehicle, and you also have to spend time loading everything up and then driving to the landfill.
If you want to get rid of a lot of stuff quickly, renting a dumpster is the way. Just put everything you want to get rid of outside your front door, and the Dumpster will be there waiting for you. This includes construction debris.
Use a Large Dumpster for Small Project
You might have missed the idea of renting a dumpster because you assumed that you would get a large metal bin, like the ones you see in alleys outside of businesses.
However, renting a dumpster at your home can make Spring cleaning smoother. Most rental companies offer a variety of sizes, including some as small as 6 yards. This means even if you don’t have a lot to get rid of, you can still benefit from having a dumpster. And don’t worry that you’re overpaying for one too big for your needs – most rental companies will adjust the price if the size you choose is too large or small.
But even if you don’t think you have enough stuff to fill up a dumpster.
Get Rid of Unwanted Furniture
You might have planned on just getting rid of the clutter you have around the house. Yet, why not take advantage of having a dumpster on-site and get rid of an old mattress or broken furniture? These might have been items you would have disposed of if you were hauling trash to the dump, but now make sense to get rid of.
Check your Backyard for Trash Too
Having a dumpster is helpful because it allows you to dispose of many materials. It includes broken branches, shrubs, leaves, lawn furniture, and even a picnic table.
Things you can’t Dispose of in Dumpster.
Dumpsters are convenient, but there are some things you cannot put in them. It includes most liquids, like paint and solvents. You can get rid of an old grill, but you can’t throw in the propane tanks.
Old appliances can be thrown away, except for air conditioners and refrigerators. Lawnmowers can also be disposed of, but you must first empty all the gas and oil.
When renting a dumpster, always let the company know what you will be getting rid of. Only a few items are not allowed in dumpsters, but it is essential to be aware of them.
Don’t wait for Spring.
If you don’t want to clean your house in the Spring, why not do it now? You often have less work to do in the winter, like shoveling the driveway and scraping ice off your car.
You can get a dumpster delivered now to take care of all the clutter quickly. With newer dumpsters, it’s easy to toss everything in, even when it’s cold outside.
You need to keep in mind a few things when renting a dumpster for your spring cleaning project. Ensure that you don’t put too much weight on the Dumpster, or you could be charged extra. You should also clear where you want the Dumpster to be placed and ensure the driver can quickly get to it. Renting a dumpster is a great way to speed up your spring cleaning project!
