Common Misconceptions About Dumpster Rental

Top 5 Common Misconceptions About Dumpster Rental

While renting a dumpster is a pretty simple process, many people believe otherwise. Renting a dumpster is a convenient way  to get rid of all of your unwanted waste, project debris, and any other junk you’re ready to toss. Below are the top five common misconceptions we hear at Dumpster Rental Inc, and the truth behind them.

1. Renting a Dumpster Is Expensive

Reality: Although renting a dumpster could get expensive, if you do it correctly it will actually end up saving you money. If you have to pay for the waste disposal, regardless of the removal method, then why not rent a dumpster, saving you both time and money since you won’t have to haul it to your local landfill on your own. You can either break up the waste little by little until you can throw it in with your weekly garbage, or you can save yourself the hassle and rent a dumpster.

At Dumpster Rental Inc our dumpster prices include our dumpster cost, the drop off and delivery fee, and include a certain amount of weight for your disposal. So rather then spending time taking multiple trips to a landfill, paying for gas, or paying for landfill offloading, call us at Dumpster Rental Inc!

2. I Can Throw Anything Into My Dumpster Rental

Reality: Each dumpster rental company will have a set of guidelines about what, and how much you can throw into a dumpster. Certain types of debris and waste require special care, and you may receive additional fees if you overfill your dumpster beyond the recommended guidelines and provided weight limit. There are also no hazardous materials allowed in the dumpster along with, tires, mattresses, box springs, household appliances, and paint cans.

3. Renting a Dumpster Is Inconvenient

Reality: Think about this, you have to take time to drive (possibly multiple trips) to your local landfill, spending time, money, and gas. Doesn’t that sound inconvenient? Now think about this, all you need to do to rent a dumpster, is to pick up the phone. You’ll just need to know some basic information about your project, what type of waste you’re removing, how much of it, and when you need the dumpster delivered, then we do the rest. At Dumpster Rental Inc our project managers will help guide you through the rental process step by step, so you won’t experience any surprises later on in regards to billing, delivery, and pick up services.

4. The Size of the Dumpster Doesn’t Matter

Reality: Size is one of the absolute most important factors when determining your waste removal needs. If you rent a dumpster that’s either too little or too big, it could end up costing you. If you’re not sure about what size you need, don’t worry! Our project managers will ask you some information about your project and help you make an educated decision based on your needs. Keep in mind it’s always good to know the volume of the waste you’re throwing away to some degree, for example if you’re throwing away old junk from your house, and your house has four bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and garage, I’d go with a 30 or 40 yard.

5. Only Construction Related People Can Rent Dumpsters

Reality: Normal non-construction related people rent dumpsters all the time! While commercial projects are most common in the dumpster industry, homeowners, business owners, and everyday regular people can rent a dumpster for their home improvement, yard cleanup, storm damage, and general household waste removal projects. If you have a large amount of waste that you need to dispose of, Dumpster Rental Inc can help!
