We often hear people renting out dumpsters for mega cleaning or remodeling projects that produce yards and yards of waste. What we don’t hear often is people renting out dumpsters for smaller projects. This could be a one room remodeling project like a bathroom renovation or a cleaning session of an attic that has been collecting dust for a long time.
Smaller projects like these usually raise the question: should you choose a normal disposal service like your garbage company or should rent a dumpster? The answer really depends on a number of things.
Sometimes projects appear small but they can actually produce an unexpectedly large amount of waste. These projects might include cleaning up a store that hasn’t been touched for years. If you’re set on taking on such a project that may produce waste you can’t really clearly estimate, it’s best to stay on the safe side and rent a small sized dumpster instead of the normal bags.
The Type of Waste
The type of waste your project produces is also an important deciding factor of what disposal option you should ultimately choose. If your project will produce wastes like brick, wood and other founding material, bags really won’t have the capacity to accommodate them. Even if the actual waste produced is little, the type is an important thing to consider.
Weight of the Waste
One obvious problem with garbage disposal bags is that they are bags made of a thin material that just can’t bear too much weight. A dumpster rental, on the other hand, is an entire truck structure that can bear a great amount of weight. With disposal bags, there’s always the fear of the bag ripping and tearing because of the waste and that could be problematic for the environment.
Too much Hassle
No matter how small your project is, filling up and carrying disposal bags around is always much more of a hassle than a dumpster rental that the company eventually handles itself. If you’re not ready to put in some manual power and energy into your waste disposal project, it’s best to rent a dumpster.
