A big project calls for a well thought-out plan. The plan includes not only how you intend to undertake the actual process of the project but also how you intend to manage the post-project cleanup. If you’re ready to start on that big house or workplace project, consider using a dumpster rental service like PAW Materials provides to adequately manage your waste and debris.
Normal trash cans or pick-up trucks aren’t as spacious or convenient as a dumpster. With trash cans, your biggest limitation is the space. Say you’re doing your bathroom renovations; you can’t simply dump the tiles and other materials in the municipal bins. Pickup trucks are also another option for junk removal but they can cost you a lot more and become quite a hassle especially if your project is extensive.
Advantages of Renting a Roll Off Container
A rental unit not only has the right space to accommodate all kinds of project wastes but they are also a lot more convenient in many ways. Here are some important benefits of renting a dumpster for your waste removal needs:
1. Safe, Efficient and Less Tedious: Our units are the safest option to discard your waste. If you’re dealing with sharp materials like roof replacement debris, normal trash bags can tear and cause health and environmental hazards. Containers also get the job done much more efficiently and you don’t have to worry about stacking up countless trash bags or bins to get rid of the waste. This makes rented dumpsters a much less tedious option as well.
2. Cost-Efficient: The initial price of a rental might seem overwhelming but it does save you money in the long run. They can also bring down labor costs.
3. Time-Saving: Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of renting one for your project is time efficiency. Instead of making multiple trips to the dump, all your waste can be disposed quickly in one load. Companies like PAW Materials can leave the unit onsite at your home or place of business to give you as much time as you need to load the container. Quality and professional companies provide quick turnaround, hauling multiple loads every day.

A dumpster rental can be the hero for your waste problem but it can’t always save the day. These units are rented out every day by homeowners and commercial building owners for several big projects that are anticipated to produce a tremendous amount of waste. While dumpsters can take up majority of your waste, junk removal companies do have certain limitations with their dumpster rental services.
Here’s a complete guide into what our company accepts and what can be safely dumped in the roll off container:
#1: Construction material: Heavy construction materials like bricks, concrete and pavers can be safely disposed of. Concrete structures, barrier walls, vaults and drains can also be dumped as can the rectangular concrete masonry unit (CMU) block.
#2: Roofing material: Roof replacement projects create a lot of debris. This includes sharp objects like nails and screws as well as heavy items like asphalt, asphalt grindings and shingles. A 43-yard container can be used to conveniently clear roofing project debris from your property even without professional involvement of your roofer.
#3: Tiles: All kinds of tiles (roof, floor and wall) are accepted.
#4: Granite: All kinds of granite (countertops, toilets and sinks) are accepted.
#5: Flora and Fauna: Spring or backyard cleaning almost always involves stripping branches, bushes and cutting down overgrown trees. The units that PAW Materials provides can be used to get rid of all of the natural debris. Stumps, wood chips, brush, sod and scrapings can all be disposed of.
#6: Soil and Dirt: Dirt and soil are the most common types of waste produced in many projects. They are heavy and can take a lot of space but dumping them is completely legal and accepted. Similarly, you can rent a unit to get rid of clay, compost, mulch and rocks.
#7: Metals: Certain kinds of metals can be thrown away: Steel and rebar are two examples.
Make sure you also know what kinds of material you cannot throw into the unit when you rent it. If you are unsure, please see our website in more detail or call PAW Materials with any questions.

The number of dumpster rental services in Wesley Chapel are numerous but choosing the right company for your waste removal needs will help you get the most benefit out of your rented unit. Plan ahead to make your home or office cleaning project a success. Choose the correct container size for the job and get a good estimate on your service price.
Sizes of Dumpsters in Wesley Chapel
The standard sizes in Florida are almost the same across the state. This includes three different sizes, starting from a 20 yard to a 43 yard. The cost will vary and the largest naturally costs more than the smallest.
But size isn’t the only thing that can affect the ultimate price you will expect to pay. Other factors like the type of waste, the debris amount and your location all play crucial factors in determining the cost that PAW Materials might be charging for your rental. While, we like to keep things simple for you, there are always extenuating factors that must be taken into consideration.
In most cases, expect to spend anywhere from between $300 to $1000. This range is not specific and can seriously vary depending upon the factors. Heavy materials such as concrete and roof shingles bring up the price of the rental while household junk and dirt cost less.
PAW Materials will ask a number of questions in advance to ensure we quote out the right price and have a good plan of action to best accommodate your specific needs.
Like most cities, you will need a secure permit to rent and park a dumpster in your locality IF you are working on a commercial project. Visit the local Wesley Chapel County or Public Works to get more information in this regard and get a proper permitting before renting a container from any company. Failure to obtain a permit and still renting a dumpster can lead to legal consequences.
You should also double check with your local company about what kind of waste can be thrown into the dumpster since not all types of junk are allowed.

It’s true that different dumpster rental companies offer different sizes but most of them do have a standard range of sizes available. Some companies might offer sizes smaller than the set three-size range of roll off containers and some might offer sizes larger or in between. Choosing the right size and dimensions of the dumpster for your project is important to make sure your job is completed properly and at the best price.
For temporary projects that require a dumpster to be rented for a few days, there are four standard sizes used by most junk removal companies.
· 10 cubic yards: The 10-yard dumpster is usually the smallest option offered. It measures 14 x 7.5 x 3.5 ft and can accommodate a weight of around 2-3 tons. For small projects like a room cleaning or remodeling, this unit could be your best choice. PAW Materials does NOT carry this size container.
· 20 cubic yards: This unit measures 22 x 7.5 x 4.5 ft and has a weight limit of 3 tons. For larger projects like renovations in the home and office, this medium sized unit can help.
· 30 cubic yards: The 30-yard dumpster has dimensions 22 ft x 7.5 ft x 6 ft. The major difference between the 20, 30 and 43 yard containers are the height and the weight limit; in the 30-yard case, the weight limit is 3.5 – 5 tons.
· 40 cubic yards: The largest size, 40 cubic yards, measures 22 x 7.5 x 8 ft. This dumpster can hold around 3.5 to 5 tons of waste and is ideal for projects like deconstruction and roof replacement.
Apart from these sizes, there are other variations. Some companies offer a middle 15 yard size and large sizes like 43 yards. Talk to your dumpster rental company serving Wesley Chapel to get the exact details of the sizes and dimensions they offer for their dumpster rental services.
Word of caution: make sure you have a permit and space available in your property to park your chosen size unit.
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!
