A mini dumpster is becoming a popular option in dumpster rentals for a number of reasons. The compact size, easy manageability and lower costs all make a small sized dumpster a popular option. Depending on your dumpster rental company, a mini dumpster can come in around 10-12 cubic yards which is a generous amount of waste for a simple project. Larger residential or commercial projects such as deconstruction, office renovation and roof replacement might need larger dumpsters of over 20 cubic yards.
Consider a mini dumpster for your waste disposal needs if you have a small project such as seasonal cleaning or a one room renovation in mind. Here are a few reasons why mini dumpsters are so popular among buyers.
They Require Less Space
Space is always an issue with dumpsters and when you’re renting a large sized dumpster, it becomes a huge problem. To make use of dumpster, you need to have space and room in your parking lot for the dumpster to park and the company to safely drive the loaded dumpster away. If you rent a large sized dumpster and find out you don’t have enough room to park it, you might not be allowed to use the dumpster at all.
Easier on the Wallet
When it comes to the overall cost of the dumpster whether loaded or empty, size matters. A large sized dumpster will naturally be more costly than a mini dumpster. If you want to be more economically efficient, a smaller size is the best option for you.
Every dumpster company has a different pricing system though. Not every company will charge you more for a large sized dumpster and might calculate the final cost according to the waste loaded in the dumpster. Talk to your dumpster rental company to confirm their pricing system before making a choice.
In the end, the type of project ultimately determines the size of dumpster you need. If the project is simple, go for a mini dumpster with practical cubic yards – it will be cheaper and easier to manage for everyone.

Winters bring with them a drop in temperature, tons of snow and warm clothes. Your lifestyle has to completely reverse in the chilly weather and the way you use your dumpster in the winter season is no exception either. It’s true that using a dumpster rental in the winter season is comparatively more tedious than renting out a dumpster in the clear summer season but you can still manage to make the most out of your rented dumpster even in these cold months.
Keep the Snow Away
If you live in an area where there’s a lot of snow then you need to make sure the snow is hauled and plowed from the place you intend to park your rented dumpster. Snow can be a major hindrance is loading and driving the dumpster away. Make sure you keep the area free of snow where your rented dumpster is parked to make dumping and hauling it away a lot more convenient for everyone.
Use Rock Salt to De-ice
Snow, even after melting or being plowed, makes the ground slippery and poses a serious health hazard for you when you’re working with your rented dumpster. De-ice the ground or floor with rock salt to make sure there is not threat of slippage.
When you’re working with a rented dumpster, you’re basically working in the chilly cold weather outside. Make sure you’re properly covered and have layers of warm clothes on. Use gloves when loading the dump in the dumpster as well.
Protect the Dumpster
Just like your, the dumpster can also suffer from cold weather damage. Protect your rented dumpster from the snow by covering it with its lid at night or use a tarp to cover it if the dumpster doesn’t come with a lid. The excess snow could make the dumpster heavier and increase the cost of the dumpster rental. The melted snow could also cause dump to slip out posing a threat to the environment and the people around it.

One of the top reasons why a dumpster is rented is when homeowners decide to move and shift their house. The amount of garbage produced during the moving process and the quantity of useless items lying around catching dust in the house is more than anyone anticipates. Maybe you’re keeping that old teddy bear your grandma gave you on you 3rd birthday because it had an emotional connection to it or maybe you’re just a collecting junkie and love to keep old things around.
Either way, you’re taking more than what you need to your new house.
Start afresh and clean in your new home by getting rid of all the mess and unnecessary clutter. If you’re not sure how to handle the mess, check out these top ways to get rid of items before moving:
Conduct a Yard or Garage Sale
A yard sale will not only help you give away items that you don’t need but help you make a small amount of profit as well. Although not as popular as they once were, these sales do drive a lot of traffic and there’s a chance someone in your neighborhood would want to use that old couch you’ve put on sale at half its original price.
Sell Them Online
Online websites can help you sell used items and also make profits for you maybe even better than a yard sale would.
Donate it to Charity
An even better way to get rid of your household items before moving is to donate them to charity. This way those in need will have items they might never get the chance to buy. For donation you must make sure that the items you’re donating meet the required standard of quality.
Gift Them to Someone
If you have an item that you think will find a new home at a friend’s or family’s place, then you can always give it to them as a gift.
If you have an item that is impossible to give away, your best choice is to dump it in the dumpster. Rent a dumpster from a reputable dumpster rental company to assist you in your moving process.

Christmas is over and the holiday season is drawing to a close. That means once the holiday fever subsides and once the guests leave your place, you’ll be left to clean gift papers, glitter, Christmas tree debris and a lot of other mess. If you’re lucky enough to have a huge Christmas family reunion, you might not be so lucky in the cleaning department. The amount of waste produced during the holiday season makes a big percentage of waste produced throughout the year in the United States.
If you’re struggling with managing your holiday waste, check out these tips that might help you out:
Not everyone gets to celebrate Christmas like you do. There are a lot of people around you longing for Christmas presents and gifts from their loved ones. Think about donating things that you know you won’t need in this holiday season to organizations and centers that deserve them and can make use of them.
Recycle the Waste
Not sure what to do with all the paper lying on the floor in the lounge? Instead of dumping it in the bin or your dumpster, drop them off to a recycling center around you that accepts colored papers. Do remember that not all recycling centers will accept gift wrapping paper; in fact, few do. Similarly, tissue paper cannot be recycled either. Glass and aluminum can also be recycled so if you have any holiday waste made up of those materials, your best option is to recycle them.
Reuse if Possible
Unless your Christmas decorations like Christmas balls, bows and wreaths are in a terrible condition, you can always keep them safe and reuse them next year. This will help you save money and reduce the amount of waste that you need to manage.
Rent a Dumpster
If the waste produced in your home during the holiday season is too much to handle for you then simply rent a dumpster to get rid of all the waste in one go.

See our last article about household items that cannot be recycled.
We’re slowly becoming aware of how important recycling is to our environment. Recycling your old items and waste can conserve energy and natural resources and make the world a much greener place and it starts from your home. It’s great that you’re taking your trash to the recycling center to get it properly disposed but there are certain items in the house that are pretty common but can’t actually be recycled.
Check out our list of common household items that can’t be recycled so that the next time you drive to the recycling center, you know exactly what not to drop off!
Plastic Shopping Bags
These plastic bags are poison to the environment. They can’t be recycled and their incineration produces a lot of harmful gases and chemicals that can damage not only the health of the environment but of humans too. Plastic grocery bags should be dropped off at a local grocery store nearby instead of in the municipal trash bins or the recycling center.
Colored paper of any kind (chart, card, crepe etc.) contains dyes that easily run and can ruin the recycling machinery. Therefore, most recycling centers do not accept colored papers. Reuse the papers of possible instead of throwing them in the bin.
Greasy Pizza Boxes
Any box or material with food sticking on it like pizza boxes cannot be recycled. The grease from these materials can damage recycling machinery so keeping these boxes away from the bin and the recycling center will save time for everyone. Other greasy substances that cannot be recycled include paper plates, plastic coffee cups, used napkins and towels etc.
The newer lights like LEDs and other energy-efficient products can be recycled easily but incandescent light bulbs struggle with the recycling process. Some centers might actually accept these light bulbs but most of them do not.
Styrofoam is found in every home but it’s pretty useless once the package it came in is opened and the item is removed. These foam balls or polystyrene balls are not recyclable but the good news is that some centers do accept Styrofoam now in the United States.
Head on to your nearest recycling center to confirm which household products they accept and which ones they don’t!

Check out our last about what to do when planning to rent a dumpster.
If you are planning for a construction project at your home in Wesley Chapel or New Port Richey, You want to do as much planning as possible with regards to where you are going to dump all of your debris.
It should be your goal to make the process as simple as possible and you might want to consider renting a dumpster for a home cleanup project or a remodeling project.
You probably have a number of questions as to what kind of dumpster size you should consider based on the project you were working on. There are a number of things to consider especially when you are redoing a roof as part of your project. All of that debris will take up substantial space and you want to make sure you size your dumpster accordingly. Typically, a 1500 square-foot roof will require a dumpster under 20 yards. Homes on the larger size over 2500 ft.² will require a 30 yard dumpster. If you happen to be doing a commercial project, then you will definitely want to go with the largest dumpster available which is 43 yards in size.
See our different dumpster container sizes here.
The key is to ensure that you measure your roof before you rent your dumpster to ensure you’re getting the right container for the job. The last thing you want to do is have a dumpster that is too small and you will require the dumpster rental company to make multiple trips which will increase your cost of the rental.
The best solution is to get a rolloff dumpster or container which would be delivered to your home or place of business, giving you the flexibility to fill it at your convenience based on the predetermined schedule with the company you were renting from.
The cost of a dumpster rental will range between $300 and $550 depending on the size of the container you require.

The question you are probably asking is if you should just take all of your debris to the dump or rent a rolloff dumpster.
The best answer to that question will determine how much debris you have and what type of vehicle you currently operate to haul junk yourself.
If you are in a situation where you do not have a pick up truck and a trailer to haul debris to the dump, you might be better off renting a dumpster for your home cleanup project.
The benefit of renting a dumpster is that it will be delivered to your place of business or your home and you can keep it as long as you need to complete your project. That being said, if your project takes longer than what you anticipated, you will not have to worry about being charged extra based on having an arrangement in place with dumpster rental company in advance.
Obviously, if you are operating on a tight budget, maybe you can borrow a truck and trailer from a friend and save yourself substantially by hauling to the dump yourself. The thing to remember is that your expense will be gas and time going to the dump. You have to factor this into your costs when evaluating against getting a dumpster rental.
We are obviously biased about dumpsters because we know they are convenient and will save you a ton of time and give you plenty of space to fill your debris without worrying about making any unnecessary trips.
The best advantage of using a dumpster is convenience and keeping things as simple as possible. The notion of having the company deliver the dumpster to your location and leaving it there until you are done is absolutely the easiest way to go. Sure, the cost might be just a bit higher but in the long run you will save both your time and any frustration of not having to travel to the dump.

However, when doing so look for the ones that have some records that show that they are capable of doing so in the past or some records that show that they have the resources that can cater to your needs. A team of experts that can guide you to renting the dumpster of the right type of the type of waste products your cleaning up project shall be generating is useful. In many areas, there are strict norms and regulations on the kind of waste that you can dump in dumpsters with usual closed top rollers.
