3 Tips To Maximize Ease Of Access With A Dumpster Rental

Renting a dumpster can provide incredible value when working on a major cleanup or extensive remodeling. Getting rid of furniture, building supplies, construction materials, and anything else you want to throw out in a short time frame is easy to do with a dumpster. Making your dumpster both quick and easy to access is a smart move that will improve your experience.

Drop-Off Location

Picking an ideal drop-off location is an important part of maximizing ease of access. A driveway in front of your house is the perfect place for a dumpster. You can access a dumpster in the driveway from the front door, garage, and backyard with relative ease. All these access points make it possible to pick the one with the least resistance when bringing things to throw away.

An ideal situation is to park your car on the street while using the rental. This will allow you to have the dumpster dropped off in the middle of the driveway. This way, you can easily access the dumpster whether you are coming from the left or right side of the backyard.

When the driveway is not an option, you want to pick the closest location on the street. Walking down the driveway to the street to toss things into a dumpster is still easy to do.

Dumpster Door

A great feature to get with your rental dumpster is a door. Opening a door allows you to step inside to throw things away without tossing them over the sides. Also, you will have an easier time organizing the debris and materials in the dumpster to fit in as much as possible.

Some dumpsters may come with a pull-out ramp that allows you to use a hand truck or furniture dolly to roll things into the dumpster. Even if a dumpster does not come with a ramp, you can make your own with wood slabs or thick metal sheets that you can safely walk on.

Side Height

While gaining access to the door is helpful, you will also benefit from picking a dumpster with short sides. Although shorter sides will reduce the total capacity of the dumpster, you will have an easier time getting things into the dumpster without physically straining. A viable solution is to rent a larger dumpster than you think you need to fit everything into a single dumpster.
