If you are going to be doing a demolition project or heavy renovations, then roll off dumpster rentals may be something that you are considering. They are often used for jobs that require a lot of material to be taken away, and depending on the material inside the dumpster, they may go to a landfill or to a recycle depot.
Why You Should Rent A Roll Off Dumpster
If you have a big job ahead of you, then it is almost impossible not to rent a roll off dumpster. It offers you a place to throw away material at your leisure, and because the company will drop it off and pick it up, you don’t have to exert effort into the removal of your material.
In addition, most companies will clean up around the dumpster before they take it away completely, leaving you with even less work. For example, if there are nails left over from a roofing job or small pieces of material that fell out of the bin, the company will usually sweep it up and take it away to leave your driveway clean.
Protect Your Driveway First
Roll off dumpsters have to be placed on a hard surface. The wheels can easily sink into a soft surface, such as dirt, making it impossible to get the container back on the track.
If your driveway is in good condition, and you have no plywood available to put under the roll off bin, then you run the risk of ending up with a scratched or damaged driveway. The wheels on roll off containers usually are made of metal, and that can easy scratch or ruin a concrete or asphalt surface.
If the rental company does not provide you with some sort of base to protect your driveway then make sure that you inquire what they will put their container down on and have it in place before they bring the container.
You May Need A Permit
Depending on where you live and where you need the roll of dumpster, you may need a permit to have it delivered. If you are doing a project at your home, then most places will not require a permit; however, if you are doing a project off your private property, it may be required. In addition, the company may require a permit. It is important to check your local rules regarding roll off dumpster rentals.
