What You Need To Know Before Ordering A Dumpster

What You Need To Know Before Ordering A Dumpster 150 150 Dumpster It Now!

Are you getting ready to start a big home project, moving, or just need to do major cleaning? A dumpster service is the most convenient and economical way to remove a large amount of debris in a short time.

Roll-off dumpster service is the best choice for a large amount of waste generated during a remodel project, cleanout, and yard cleanup. When you’re ready to call for the service in Greenville, NC, here are a few things to consider.

What Size Dumpster Should I Order?

The first and most important item to consider is the size of the dumpster you will need. Decide if you need one or more dumpsters for your project.

For most home projects, 10-yard or 15-yard dumpster containers work perfectly. These sturdy steel dumpsters are ideal for DYI projects, remodeling a room, cleaning out a garage or attic, yard cleanup, and more.

These containers are a good size to fit most standard driveways or residential areas with no issues. You can order one or as many roll-off dumpsters as you need with Dumpster It Now.

Where Should The Dumpster Be Placed?

Finding a good spot for the dumpster is important. Decide the best location for the dumpster to be placed. The delivery driver will look at the area and make a suggestion for the best place to set the dumpster.

Depending on how big your preferred dumpster is, make sure that nothing is blocking the space like cars, trash cans, construction debris, or other household items. Doing this will easily accommodate your on-time dumpster drop-off without any problem.

Can You Put Any Waste In The Dumpster?

Waste disposal does have rules wherever you live in the US. Make sure to follow the guidelines of what your dumpster service allows in its dumpsters. Each county and state has its own specific rules, so it’s wise to research what is allowed and not allowed. Items allowed are:

  • General waste and trash
  • Construction debris
  • Furniture
  • Yard waste 

But across the board, absolutely no hazardous materials are ever allowed in any landfill. How do you know what materials are considered hazardous? 

You may find this helpful when trying to figure out if something is hazardous. If you answer yes to any of the following five questions, do not place the items in a dumpster:

  • Is the waste material flammable?
  • Can the waste materials cause rusting or decomposition?
  • Is the waste material explosive?
  • Is the waste material poisonous?
  • Does the trash contain any medical waste products?

If you have hazardous waste, such materials listed here need to be disposed of properly. Your local county or state websites can help you find locations to discard these types of refuse safely.

What Can Be Thrown Away In A Dumpster?

When you need to order a dumpster for a remodel, garage cleanouts, attic cleanouts, yard cleanup, etc, you may wonder, what exactly is allowed to be disposed of in one? That’s a good and very important question to ask.

Some people may think that everything and anything can be thrown away in a dumpster. But the truth is there are some things that are against the law to dispose of in a landfill. This is due to safety and health hazards certain items can cause.

First, we will go over all acceptable items you can put in a dumpster. Then, we will go over what is not allowed to be disposed of in a roll-off dumpster according to waste management rules.

Items Allowed To Be Disposed Of In A Dumpster

Items NOT Allowed To Be Disposed of In A Dumpster

Appliances / “White Goods”

North Carolina law prohibits the dumping of appliances. You cannot dispose of washers, dryers, refrigerators, microwaves, ovens, ranges, water heaters, freezers, unit air conditioners in a dumpster.

Hazardous Materials

Wet paints, stains, lacquers, and paint thinners are not allowed. Empty paint cans can be disposed of or recycled at PaintCare locations. Use the PaintCare Site Locator to find a place to drop off your leftover paint.

Asbestos, pesticides, motor oil and other automotive fluids, propane tanks, household cleaners, ink and resins, and medical waste should never be put in a dumpster.

Car Batteries & Tires

Do not put car batteries or tires in a dumpster.

The good news is there are various ways to properly dispose of scrap tires and batteries. Most auto parts stores or tire dealerships have recycling programs. It’s best to call and inquire about the details.

Another option includes finding a local recycler who will then convert old tires into asphalt or rubber mulch.

Miscellaneous items NOT to be put in a dumpster:
        • Discarded televisions
        • Fluorescent lights

6 Reasons to Use A Dumpster Service

6 Reasons to Use A Dumpster Service 150 150 Dumpster It Now!

Home and property owners in Greenville, NC find that a dependable & affordable dumpster service comes in handy for many reasons.

Dumpster rental is ideal for many projects. When it comes to home improvements or home maintenance the accumulation of garbage and debris happens quickly. Are you asking yourself, “Do I really need to rent a dumpster for this project?” Here are 6 reasons why you should rent a dumpster.

1. Moving

It’s amazing how quickly we accumulate “stuff”. Even if you’ve only lived in your home for a few short years, we don’t realize how much we have until we have to pack it all up to move. You’ll quickly start asking yourself, “Do we really need this? I didn’t even know we still had it!” If you are moving into a much different space you may even decide to throw out old and worn-out furniture, broken lawn furniture or equipment, old toys, nasty dog houses, and the list goes on.

2. Home Renovations

Discount Dumpster rentalsWhen it comes to home renovating and remodeling, let’s face it your gonna have a mess. Pulling up old carpet and padding may reveal subfloor issues and consequently, the need for areas to be replaced. What about updating kitchen cabinets? Pulling out old cabinetry, backsplashes, and old countertops also means you will be removing much drywall and other building material. Having a dumpster to toss as you demo will make your job a lot easier with faster clean up.

3. Seasonal Cleaning

Do you ever find that your small spring or fall cleaning project snowballs into a full house purge? And actually, that’s a great idea! Go through your home, each room, closet, cabinet, attic, basement, crawl space, and storage shed once or twice a year. If you don’t think you’ll fill it, coordinate a date with a neighbor, and split the cost.

4. Landscaping & Yard Clearing

Yard clean up and landscaping are big projects. The chore of pulling out overgrown bushes, shrubs, and cutting down trees will quickly turn into tons of debris to remove from your property. You’ll find it the easiest and cleanest way to dispose of the yard waste.

5. Roof & Home Siding Replacement

Removing and replacing a roof or siding adds up to hundreds of pounds of waste. You may find that trim work may need to also be removed and replaced. Having a dumpster onsite will keep the worksite around your home safe by getting rid of all sharp objects including nails, sharp metal flashing, and other building materials.

6. Garage Cleanout

Has your garage become a final resting place for the junk you’ve practically forgotten about? Garages often become the place where all the stuff you’re not sure what to do with ends up. Have your piles kept you from being able to park in your garage? It’s time to go through the stuff, rent an affordable dumpster, and take your garage back.

Attic and Garage Clean Outs

Attic and Garage Clean Outs 2121 1414 Dumpster It Now!

Spring is here and it’s a great time to get the garage, attic, or shed cleaned out and organized.

More of us in the Greenville, NC area are finding ourselves either without work or working from home. To keep from being overwhelmed with sudden changes that affect our whole way of life, it’s good to keep busy with constructive things. And with the kids home with us in, we may be looking for things to keep the whole family active and off the couch.

Tips On Organizing The Clutter

Before tackling projects, big or small, think about what you would like to accomplish and the purpose.  Is this cleanout to:

  1.  Clear out the garage to be able to pull in the car(s)
  2. Clear a space to work in, exercise in, or relax in
  3. Declutter for an upcoming move
  4. Simplify and pair down things
  5. Just moved in and realized you should have gotten rid of more before the move

Next, prioritize what needs to be done first. Remember that it doesn’t have to be done all in one day. In areas where clutter has been piled up for months or years will take time to go through.

Give each person a job or task. Assign according to who can do the job best. You can also have each person go through the things they know are their own.

The Decluttering Process

  • Designate bins for “things to keep”. Label each bin with each person’s name or what will go in it.
  • Have plenty of large garbage bags and/or cardboard boxes for recycling.
  • Designate other cardboard boxes or bags for things to donate.
  • Once sorted remove everything from the area.
  • Do a thorough cleaning of the space.
  • It’s a perfect time to paint the walls or floors. You’ll be more likely to keep it tidy.
  • Assemble or hang shelving or storage solution items.
  • Bring your “keep” items back, in labeled clear storage containers along with all other items.

Why Order Dumpster When You Remodel

Why Order Dumpster When You Remodel 6000 4000 Dumpster It Now!

Home remodeling is exciting and about making your home beautiful and more functional. Sometimes even newly built homes have no character or have wasted space. Home remodeling and revisions have become a craze in the United States due to endless home improvement shows, magazines, and online home improvement stores. Options are virtually endless no matter your style or need.

Most cannot afford a high-end custom-built home. So, more are inclined to look for a house in a good area with great bones but may need some work or one that is just in need of some cosmetic character and updates.

Why Is A Budget Important to a Home Remodeling Project?

Successful projects always start with a lot of planning. Before starting a home remodeling project, come up with your budget. Why? For a few good reasons.

  1.  A budget helps you stay within your means to pay for the project from start to finish.
  2.  Contractors base their bids or estimates based on your budget. They don’t want a project that a homeowner cannot possibly afford.
  3. Are you a do-it-yourselfer? A budget allows you to establish your priorities in selecting materials and finishes.

Do not forget to budget for surprises. You cannot forsee issues, but it’s necessary to expect some. It’s wise to have that safety net just in case.

Why Should I Budget In A Dumpster Service?

Don’t catch yourself in the middle of demolition day and think, know how do I get rid of all this debris? Regular residential trash services do not allow you to throw your house/construction debris in recepticles for regular trash pickup service. The amount of debris a remodeling project produces can add up to a few tons.

Your home remodeling budget should include a dumpster rental service. All debris, as long it is not toxic, can be thrown in the dumpster as your project continues. Because a dumpster makes it easy to keep the area outside of the home neat and debris free, your neighbors will be happy not to see a huge mess at the curb.
