Waste management can be a concern for both households and organizations. For businesses that generate a lot of waste, rental dumpsters are a must-have.

Fortunately, there is a wide range of rental dumpster services available. Generally, municipal corporations do the cleanup for urban centers, small non-profit cooperatives help out smaller towns, and professional waste handling companies manage waste management for industries. 

When choosing a dumpster rental service, consider the costs and quality of service. After all, you don’t want to select a cheaper company that delays deliveries and pick-ups. 

Here are a few other factors to consider when selecting a dumpster rental service:

What Type Of Waste Do You Have?

The first step is determining what type of waste you’ll most likely produce. Do you need a dumpster service for a restaurant, household, scrap yard, or something else? This can tell you what type of waste you’ll generate – metal scrap, food waste, paper, plastic, garden waste, etc. Depending on your waste, the dumpster rental service will tell you how to segregate those unwanted items. Avoid mixing hazardous materials like glass shards with your other waste. The rental service might charge you extra to sort the waste. Additionally, if you mainly produce food waste, the rental service will need to collect the waste sooner since the smell can worsen quickly. 

Where Is The Company Located?

When renting from dumpster providers, ensure you rent from a company near where you want the dumpster to be placed. This way, you can avoid hefty transport costs. You can find a nearby dumpster service by Googling “dumpster rental service near me.”

What Is Their Dumpster Variety?

Once you’ve determined what type of waste you want to dispose of, you need to choose an appropriate dumpster. Large organizations might generate around 1 ton of garbage per day, while a small restaurant might only produce 100 pounds of waste.

For residential homes, ensure you select a dumpster that’ll fit on your driveway or in your yard. If you’re planning to renovate your home, you’ll probably need a larger dumpster to accommodate the construction debris. However, some residential HOA’s might not allow such oversized dumpsters, so ensure you do your research before renting one. 

What Are Their Costs?

It can be challenging to figure out how dumpster rental companies will charge you – is the price based on the rental length, the weight of the rubbish, or the actual size of the dumpster?

Additionally, some dumpster rental companies charge you a flat rate that’s paid upfront. And while flat rates might seem more attractive, they’re only affordable if you only need to rent the dumpster for a one-off project. Generally, dumpster rental services will charge you depending on the rental period and dumpster size. You might have to pay additional fees if your dumpster is too heavy. Ensure you ask the company you choose to disclose any factors that could lead to additional costs (weight, toxic waste, and more). This way, you aren’t bombarded with many hidden fees when it’s time to pay.
