Construction sites generate a lot of trash. Most of the material that is used on the site is wrapped or packaged in something that ends up in the trash. How you chose to dispose of that trash may be different from job to job, but you have to find a way to get it off the site. You might consider finding a construction dumpster for rent for your site. Here are some benefits to renting a container.
Easy Disposal of Waste Material
No matter what the material is, if it is waste, it needs to leave the job site. A construction dumpster can make it easy to remove discarded or damaged material as well as removing the trash that comes with unwrapping things like insulation rolls. While you could load a truck and haul it to the dump, doing that means losing a worker for a while, and if the landfill is not nearby, it can cost more in the long run.
Keep the Site Looking Neat and Clean
While it is still a construction site, if the site is clean and organized, people will be happier about seeing it in their neighborhood. The site does not have to be perfect, but if there are papers and trash floating around the site--or worse, into people's yards--you may become very unpopular with the natives very quickly. If you have a container on the site, make sure it gets dumped when it is full, or you will still have debris blowing around.
You might be thinking, "How do I save money by spending it?" The truth is, the municipality you are building in can require you to haul trash and other debris away at your own expense any time they like. With a dumpster on-site, all you need to do is call and have it dumped if they give you a hard time about it. Try and negotiate a deal with the dumpster rental company to include some pickups with your rental cost. They may not want to do that, but it does not hurt to ask when you are setting up the rental agreement.
Finding the Right Rental Company
If you have a company that you use regularly on your job sites, there is no reason to change. If you don't have a company that you use, finding one close to your site is a good idea because they can respond faster if you need a quick pickup. Shop around and get a fair price for the service, and don't be afraid to tell the company their competitor is cheaper. They might be willing to match or beat the competition's rate.Share
