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.
