Most homes include one or possibly two large garage cans that are regularly emptied by the city or a waste management company. But sometimes, those garbage bags just are not big enough to hold all of your trash as well as everything else that you need to throw away. If you need to dispose of a lot of things, a dumpster rental may be the ideal solution. There are many situations where renting a dumpster can makes things easier, such as:
Selling your House
If you have lived in your home for several years and are getting ready to sell it, consider renting a dumpster before you put your house on the market. You want your home to look as clean and clutter-free as possible in order to appeal to potential buyers, and having a dumpster on site for a couple of days can make it incredibly easy to get rid of old junk that you have in the attic or basement, or belongings that you just don’t need anymore.
Doing a Renovation Project
Renovations can add a lot of value to your home, but the process can be incredibly messy. Don’t make the mistake of doing a demolition and leaving the old materials in a pile in your backyard. After your renovation is finished, you probably won’t want to load everything up and haul it to the dump. In order to simplify the process, arrange to rent a dumpster before your home improvement project starts.
Major Yard Clean Up
A major backyard cleanup can create a lot of waste and debris, and you will need a place to dispose of it. If you’re having your yard completely cleaned up, including weed removal and tree trimming, you may require a dumpster for all of the debris. Before renting a dumpster, make sure the waste management company can accept yard waste, and ask if all trimmings and debris needs to be bagged before being placed in the dumpster.
Cleaning Out the Home of a Deceased Loved One
If you are the executor of someone’s estate, the time may come where you will be responsible for cleaning out his or her house after he or she dies. This can be a long, complicated process. You will need to go through every room, closet, and drawer and then decide which items should be kept and what should be trashed. Having a dumpster onsite can make the cleaning out process much faster, and you can get rid of junk easily so you can concentrate on the items that need to be kept.
