Spring is just around the corner, and with it, spring cleaning. If you’ve been considering spring cleaning your basement, attic, garage, or storage shed over the winter, you aren’t alone.
Chances are that you have been making mental lists in your head, what items you would like to remove, which ones stay, which items you will give away or donate, and then the difficult question- what will you do with the remaining items?
It’s the last part that gives many people the most trouble. How are you supposed to get rid of that old worn-out sofa, a broken rocking chair no one wants, or that stack of 8-track tapes you somehow collected that has been gathering dust for years?
If you’ve considered renting a dumpster but wondered what your neighbors might think if it needs to sit in the driveway or other public location, imagine how thrilled they will be seeing your old junk piled up in the front yard while you make trips to the dump? A dumpster keeps everything neat and clean looking. If you have a homeowners association, be sure to check with the list of rules to see if you are allowed to have a dumpster in front of your home or if they have rules regarding the length of time a dumpster can be parked at your home.
There is plenty of good news, however. Today, we want to show you 5 ways that renting a dumpster can help you do some major spring cleaning with very little risk and just a bit of cash.
Advantage #1- Cost Saving
If you only have a few small items to dispose of, then renting a dumpster probably isn’t for you. For many people, however, cleaning out a basement, garage, attic, shed, or downsizing means that over the years, perhaps even decades, worth of unwanted items or plain old junk would take dozens of trips to the junkyard to remove it yourself. That is, if you have an SUV or pickup that can take that broken-down sofa! Dumpster rentals will end up saving you hours of time, gas, wear and tear, as well as headaches.
Advantage #2-You Can Toss (nearly) Anything into the Dumpster
This means no figuring out how you are going to load that broken dining room set into your Prius! If it’s not hazardous materials (we will provide you with a list of hazardous items that you cannot put in the dumpster) virtually anything can go into it! Everything from broken appliances to sectional sofa units! If you are unsure if something is hazardous waste and it’s not on the list, give us a call. You will know in just a minute if you can dump it or if you must dispose of it elsewhere. We will even help by finding out where and when you can ditch the hazardous waste in your basement or garage safely and legally.
Advantage #3- No Need to Make Multiple Trips
Show a few pictures or give a good description of the items in your home that you wish to put in the dumpster, and we will help you determine the correct size. However, if the job becomes bigger than you anticipated, no problem! Give us a call and we will either exchange the full dumpster for an empty one!
Advantage #4- Super Convenient
Tackling that basement or garage is going to be a daunting task as it is, right? When you add how many weekends you will need to spend making multiple trips to the dump, and you will see your weekend plans for the summer slipping away from you! Renting a dumpster means we will deliver it to your location, you toss your unwanted items into the bin, and we remove the dumpster for you. It doesn’t get much easier than this!
Advantage #5- Environmentally Friendly
You might be wondering how this could be, but let’s look at this for a moment. You won’t have to worry about trash being blown into the street or neighbors yards, you won’t be burning a great deal of fossil fuels making multiple trips to the city dump, you can close the lid, preventing wildlife (or dumpster divers) from possibly becoming injured or killed, and you know that nothing in the dumpster is considered hazardous waste, so you aren’t polluting the environment with these items.
