Renting a large dumpster that will likely take up a generous amount of space is always a tough decision to make. But sometimes, you really don’t have a choice. Huge projects or projects that make up tons and tons of waste call for large sized dumpsters. Despite knowing that a particular project is pretty extensive and will produce lots of waste, many people still debate on whether they really should rent a large sized dumpster or just a smaller size. After all, large is always more expensive.
Renting a large sized dumpster becomes a necessity in the following cases:
Obviously Extensive Projects
Some projects are so obviously extensive that considering a medium or a small sized dumpster shouldn’t even be an option. These projects include industrial construction projects, landscaping projects, swimming pool removal, demolition, major building renovation.
If you’re thinking that a medium sized dumpster will get the cleaning done for you – don’t. Save yourself the worry of overloading or renting a second dumpster and go with a large size instead.
If you can calculate the amount of debris or waste your job will produce, you can estimate the amount of cubic yards that will be required. Generally one ton of waste will take up two cubic yards of space in the dumpster. Most companies offer large sized dumpsters with a capacity of 30 to 40 cubic yards (the price will vary company to company). According to this space, you can make a decent estimate how much space your debris will take up and if a medium sized dumpster could be rented instead.
Things to Consider with Large Dumpster Rentals
There are some major drawbacks to large dumpsters that can sometimes make it impossible to rent them. The first and foremost obvious issue with large dumpster rentals is that they’re pretty expensive. If you don’t have the budget to rent a $500-dumpster, then maybe you need to think of other size options.
Other important considerations that limit renting them include the availability of large-sized dumpster rentals and the space the dumpster will take.
