Tips for Temporary Dumpster Rental


Maybe you’re planning a house renovation. Or, you’re getting ready to move, and you feel like you’re drowning in junk. Either way, you need a bin rental solution and fast

If you require ongoing waste removal, a regularly-scheduled dumpster rental is more cost-effective. But if you need a one-time solution, opt for a temporary rental. It’s a great solution for homeowners with a big project ahead of them. 

Is it your first time renting a dumpster? You might not know how to prepare for your delivery. Make your upcoming waste removal project painless with these tips:


Load The Dumpster Efficiently 

Loading a dumpster is like playing a game of Jenga: it’s all about how you stack it. You want to stack your items as efficiently as possible to make the most of your storage space. If the bin is overflowing with junk, you might have to pay an additional fee. 


Clear Enough Space

Picture this: you’ve just ordered a 40-yard bin rental delivery to your house. Once it’s in your driveway, you realize that you don’t have nearly enough space for it. Where on earth are you going to put it?

Avoid this awkward situation by measuring the size of your driveway (or the planned location for it) beforehand. Use these measurements to find out which bin will fit. 

While you’re preparing space for the dumpster, consider how accessible it will be. If the dumpster is parked against a wall, with the swinging door in a corner, you’ll have a hard time loading materials into it. Don’t make more work for yourself by storing the dumpster in an awkward spot.


Choosing A Size

It doesn’t make sense to rent a dumpster that’s too large; you’ll be paying more for space you don’t use. But if you rent one that’s too small, you’ll be dealing with an even greater inconvenience: an excess of junk that won’t fit in your bin. 

If you’re cleaning up after a major construction or demolition project, a 40-yard dumpster might be best. But if you’re just doing a move-out clean, you can probably use a smaller size, like a 15 or 25-yard bin. 

Need help selecting a bin size? If possible, try to store all of your waste materials in one place; this makes it easier to estimate the total volume. But if that’s not an option, you can give us a call at Mr. Garbage; we’ll be happy to help you out. 


Separate Hazardous Materials

Not everything belongs in a dumpster. Any chemicals or contaminated materials should be stored separately. Things like oil, flammable materials, and batteries should be dropped off at a designated location—not put in with your regular garbage collection. 

Since we’re committed to environmentally friendly cleaning solutions, we also offer recycling services. You can trust that we’ll do our part to separate recyclable materials. 


With a dumpster, you won’t need to worry about the cleanup. These temporary rental bins make it easy to stay on top of garbage. We hope these above tips will help you prepare for the big day.
