When running a construction project, you always want to have a dumpster on hand. Having a dumpster on hand will help keep the construction site clean and will allow you to clean up each day instead of having to dedicate a full day to cleaning at the end of the project. When it comes to construction dumpster rental, there are various sizes of dumpsters you could rent.
The smallest dumpster you can rent is a six-yard dumpster. This size dumpster is so small that it probably is not big enough for even a small construction job. A six-yard dumpster is more useful for someone cleaning out a very small space or someone who is doing a little landscaping and has a few things to get rid of.
The next smallest size is a ten-yard dumpster. A ten-yard dumpster works for something like a very small remodeling job, such as remodeling a small bathroom or kitchen. A ten-yard dumpster is the right size for a garage clean-out.
A fifteen-yard dumpster is one of the most common sizes of dumpster that companies rent out. A fifteen-yard dumpster is large enough for most projects. If you are tearing an old roof from a house, a fifteen-yard dumpster should be able to handle the waste generated by re-roofing up to a 2,000-square-foot house. A fifteen-yard dumpster works for remodeling a larger kitchen, or a multi-room space such as a bedroom and bathroom remodel or a multi-bathroom remodel.
Twenty-yard dumpsters are just a little bit bigger than a fifteen-yard dumpster, but that extra space can really make a different. Twenty-yard dumpsters are great for bigger roofing projects for homes that are over 2,000 square feet in space. This size of space is just right for most medium-sized construction projects that you could undertake.
A thirty-yard dumpster is oftentimes the largest dumpster offered by most dumpster rental companies. A thirty-yard dumpster will accommodate just about anything. If you are not just doing small remodeling projects, but you are building an entire home or building or remodeling an entire home, this is the dumpster you want to go with.
When renting a dumpster, remember that you can have the dumpster taken away, dumped and returned, so if you are not sure on the size you need, you can do with one of the mid-size dumpsters, and arrange to have it picked up and emptied throughout the project. This can be a good idea if you don't have a ton of space as well.
These days, there are so many new inventions and weird components to machines and appliances. It's hard to know what's safe to keep, recycle, or throw away when something is all used up. For example, I didn't know until a few months ago what to do with old ink cartridges, used computers, or antique printers. I finally called my local recycling center and asked for a list of things that can be recycled. They even told me about this weeklong event they hold every year where they set up recycling pickup stations for large items so you don't have to drive all the way to the center.
