Construction Dumpster Rental - Do You Need One?
Any job will create debris, whether from cleaning out an old space or adding a new wing to the house. Depending on the size of the job and the estimated amount of work, it can be tempting to just go ahead and rent a dumpster in Ottumwa.
This can be a costly mistake, however, as several variables need to be considered before agreeing to rent a dumpster.
Start with estimating the length of time needed to complete the project and how much debris could be generated during that time frame. A larger project with a lot of debris, such as stripping a roof or emptying out a garage, are good examples of dumpster-ready projects.
But smaller projects might not require the use of any dumpster, particularly if the potential renter owns a truck large enough to transport the debris to a landfill or disposal drop-off point. If the estimated debris won’t fill even a small dumpster, the renter can bypass that option in favor of doing it themselves.
If the renter does not have a truck, they might be able to dispose of small amounts of debris in the garbage. Care needs to be taken about this option, however. Although local governments often provide waste disposal services, very few of them will haul away construction debris.
Other than very small projects, renting a dumpster can be the best option for construction projects. Always check with local governments about waste disposal services, especially about construction debris. Setting debris out for garbage removal could potentially result in fines, which can be bypassed by renting a dumpster.
