If you are starting a remodeling project at your home, retail space, or business location, the one thing you will be sure to generate a lot of is trash and debris. Both are a by-product of a remodeling job, and there is not always a way to reduce it. Dealing with the trash and debris from the job is an important detail that should be part of the planning process. Waiting until you have piled on the sidewalk is to the best way to deal with the trash.
Renting A Dumpster
One of the most cost-effective ways to deal with the trash and the debris from the tear out is to rent a dumpster or large roll-off container for a couple of weeks. Check with your local trash companies about getting a dumpster and what it involves. These containers are handled by large companies that specialize in dealing with commercial containers and services, but they are also very good at managing containers for jobs just like yours. Be sure to let them know what you will be putting in it when you are renting it, so they send the right kind of container to you.
Placement Of The Container
When you are having the container delivered, the driver may want to leave it on the curb but before you get to this point, you need to check local ordinances and HOA (homeowners association) rules if you live in a community that has one, about where it can be placed and how long it can be there. If it has to be in the driveway, for instances, then you need to let the company know that so they can get the driver to put it in the right place. Try and choose a place that is close enough to the house that it makes it easier to load trash and debris into. If you don't check, you could end up in a situation that requires getting the container moved or worse, a fine from the HOA for placing it where they don't want it.
Getting The Container Emptied
It is important to find out how often you can get the dumpster or container emptied. Some companies will do it weekly; others will have you call when it is full. It just depends on what the needs of the customer are, so be sure to discuss this with the disposal company. So you are clear on how this part works. Waiting around for a couple of weeks for them to empty a container that you were supposed to call to get emptied could be very frustrating and could slow the job down. Have the discussion when you rent the dumpster, and there will be no surprises along the way.
