Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Roll-Off Dumpster

If you’re planning a home renovation, cleaning out your garage, or tackling any other major project that’s going to generate a lot of junk or waste, then a roll-off dumpster is a must. That’s because roll-off dumpsters are large, open-topped containers that can be delivered to your property and used for disposing of all kinds of junk and waste.

But if you’ve never rented a roll-off dumpster before, then you might not be sure how to get the most out of it — and make sure that you get all of your unwanted junk hauled away. Hauling Solutions is here to provide tips to help our North Carolina residents get the most of our their junk removal.

Calendar scheduling

Plan Ahead

We know that you might not be able to predict when you’re going to need a roll-off dumpster — but if you can, it’s always best to plan ahead. That’s because if you wait until the last minute, you might not be able to get the size of dumpster that you need. Or, even if you are able to get the size, there might not be any dumpsters available during the time frame you need it!

So, if you know that you have a big project coming up in the near future, give us a call at Hauling Solutions and we’ll make sure to deliver the roll-off dumpster to your property ahead of time so it’s there when you need it.

Know What Can (and Can’t) Go in the Dumpster

When you’re filling up your roll-off dumpster, it’s important to know what junk can (and cannot) be disposed of.. That’s because there are some items that should never go in a dumpster, as they can be hazardous or dangerous.

Some items that cannot go in a roll-off dumpster include:

  • Paint
  • Chemicals
  • Oil
  • Asbestos
  • Tires

If you’re not sure if an item can go in the dumpster, then give us a call at Hauling Solutions and we’ll be happy to help.

Choose the Right Size

When it comes to roll-off dumpsters, they are available in a variety of sizes. If you choose a dumpster that is too small, you may find yourself filling it up before you’re done. On the other hand, if you choose a dumpster that is too large, you may end up paying for space that you don’t need.

To determine the right size dumpster for your needs, you’ll need to know how much waste you’re expecting to generate. A good rule of thumb is to choose a dumpster that’s about half the size of a standard pickup truck. Hauling Solutions also offers free quotes for your project to ensure that you’re getting the right dumpster the first time around!

Load the Dumpster Properly

Another important factor to consider is how you load the dumpster. If you’re not careful, you could end up damaging the dumpster or injuring yourself. When loading your roll-off dumpster, make sure you:

  • Life heavy items carefully to avoid injury
  • Place lighter items on top of heavier items
  • Don’t overload the dumpster (this can damage the dumpster or make it difficult to haul away)

If you’re not sure what the rules are, be sure to ask your rental company.
