Renting A Dumpster To Manage The Waste From Your Construction Project

Managing the large amounts of waste that a construction project creates is a major responsibility when overseeing these projects. While disposing of debris from the construction project may seem like a minor project, there are some mistakes that individuals will often make.

Renting A Dumpster That Is Too Small

The size of the dumpster is one of the more important factors to consider when choosing a rental option for your construction project. Unfortunately, it is easy to underestimate the amount of waste that the construction project will create. To avoid this possibility, it is advisable to opt for a dumpster that is actually larger than the amount of waste that you expect to dispose of. This will potentially save you from the costs of having the dumpster emptied multiple times, which may greatly increase the rental costs.

Overloading One Side Of The Dumpster

When putting items into the construction dumpster, it is important to load them as evenly as possible. Placing too many heavy items to one side of the dumpster can make it more unstable. It may also make it more difficult for you to make full use of the dumpster's load capacity. By ensuring that your workers are informed about this need, it will be easier to avoid the need to potentially redistribute the items in the dumpster due to capacity or stability issues. Choosing a dumpster that is easy for individuals to place waste into it will help you avoid situations where workers overload one side due to it being more convenient to use.

Putting Prohibited Materials In The Dumpster

The type of waste that is produced by a construction project will need to follow special protocols during disposal. It is important to make sure that you are following the rules concerning the prohibited items. Disposing of hazardous or otherwise dangerous materials in these dumpsters can be a serious mistake that may leave you liable for damage. Luckily, you will not have to guess when it comes to these items as the construction dumpster rental service may provide a list of the materials that are not able to be placed in the dumpster. If you anticipate your project will have prohibited waste, you will need to find a suitable storage and disposal option. This is particularly common for asbestos removal projects or industrial renovations.
