Waste removal has become difficult to manage at your property. And whether it’s from a demolition or construction project, you’ve decided it’s time to rent a dumpster. With a bin rental, you can easily load debris and junk into the container; it’s efficient, cost-effective, and convenient.
Now that you’ve made up your mind, the next step is figuring out where to put the dumpster. Depending on the location of your job site, you may have a few placement options available to you, each with unique advantages and disadvantages.
A few common locations to store a dumpster include:
- At a job site
- Inside of a building
- Parked on the street
- In a driveway
How do you decide which location is best for your bin rental? Here are a few things to consider when you’re choosing the placement of your dumpster:
Do you need a permit?
Placing your bin on the street can be convenient, especially in residential areas. It saves you from damaging your yard or blocking the driveway. However, you will likely need a permit to place a bin on the street. In Winnipeg, you will need to obtain a Use of Street Permit.
When you rent a dumpster with Mr. Garbage, our street permit will cover it. That means you won’t have to pay any additional fees!
What size is the container?
If you’re renting a particularly large dumpster, you may need to store it on your driveway. Although this may cause damage to the pavement, it might be your only option to avoid blocking other areas.
To ensure you have enough space, we recommend measuring your driveway. Compare those measurements to the size of the bin rental to determine if it will fit.
You might be tempted to rent a smaller bin so that it fits in the driveway. But this could lead to another inconvenience: running out of room in the dumpster. Consider storing the bin elsewhere if your driveway is too small for the bin size you require.
Is the ground level?
If the bin is placed on an uneven surface, it might be more difficult to load waste materials into it. When you open the loading door, it may pose a safety hazard if the dumpster is unstable. Try to choose a location where the ground is firm and level. In addition, clear the area of any obstructions that could interfere with the placement or loading process.
Can it fit inside a building?
If you’re clearing out an interior space, you might want to place the dumpster inside of the building. This will save you from walking back and forth from the bin to the area you’re working.
Ideally, you’d like to have the bin placed within your warehouse. But loading the dumpster into a building may pose challenges of its own. You’ll need to ask the bin rental company if they’re willing to deliver it inside of a warehouse. Make sure that you have enough room for the vehicle and dumpster to fit.
