When you are commuting to work or out walking the dog, you may have noticed a large trash container sitting in front of a home that is going through renovation. They are slightly different than your typical dumpster that sits in an alley behind a store or restaurant; instead, they are designed to handle a variety of waste material.
The process of requesting one of these is fairly simple: you call up a trash container rental company who will then bring it to your location and either set it down in your driveway or near the curb. From there, you can fill it up with all your rubbish. When you have either maxed out its available capacity or are done using it, you only have to give the rental company a call and they will come to take it away.
When You Should Rent a Trash Container
While there is a wide swath of situations where renting a trash container is applicable, we will run down some of the more common times where this makes a lot of sense.
For those of you who live a do-it-yourself life and plan on tearing down the roofing, siding, walls, and windows from your house, then it would be in your best interests to rent a trash container. All that waste needs a place to go, so having an efficient way to dispose of it all can be really helpful!
Another case is when you are doing a yard project. The weather in Texas can do a number on our yards, especially if your property has plenty of trees, shrubs, bushes, and more. Whether you are dealing with yard waste or old play equipment your child has outgrown, a trash container is a great option. It’s important to note your town or city’s trash hauling service won’t take care of this type of rubbish unless you want to pay a pretty penny.
Lastly, trash containers are perfect for when you are planning on moving and need to get rid of a lot of junk you don’t plan on taking with you. From dressers and bookshelves to old mattresses and tables, the right container can handle it all. This makes total sense when you have nowhere else to toss these items (and your friends or relatives aren’t willing to take them off your hands).
What You Will Be Expected to Pay for a Trash Container
Trash containers vary based on the rental company you decide to go with. Typically speaking, you will tend to see most of them have containers that are able to hold 20 cubic yards or 30 cubic yards of waste material.
While the prices can range depending on who you go with, you can always contact the company directly in order to request a quote. They’ll have different sizes for you to choose from so you may want to figure out ahead of time how large a project you’re going to be dealing with. If you aren’t sure, the rental company will usually know which one will be best for you.
Before you rent a trash container, there are a few matters you want to keep in mind so you’re prepared for its arrival. For one thing, make sure that the driveway or street in front of your home is clear. After all, the last thing you want to do is be forced to walk a long distance just to dump your rubbish. You may have to give up your parking space for the trash container. Finally, as trash containers tend to be on the tall side, you may need to find a step stool or something similar to easily dispose of any waste.
By keeping all this information in mind, you may discover that trash containers can be a great solution for all your major home or yard work! Do you have any recommendations or questions regarding the use of trash containers around the home? Please share them in the comments section below!
