Renting a dumpster should be easy and convenient. It’s a simple way to get rid of large amounts of waste that you can’t put out with your regular trash pick-up. But some people make mistakes that can make the process more difficult than it should be. 

At Sweitzer Waste, we want to make the dumpster rental process as efficient as possible. We’re here to answer your questions so you don’t make costly and timely mistakes.

Mistakes to Avoid When Renting a Dumpster

If you need to rent a dumpster in the future, here are four mistakes you should avoid:

Renting from the Wrong Company

Choosing the wrong dumpster rental company can lead to many other problems down the road. You may end up paying more than you have to and may not be able to get the size dumpster you need. 

Some companies may try to persuade you to rent a dumpster that is too big for your needs, resulting in high costs. At Sweitzer Waste Removal, we help our customers choose the correct size dumpster to suit their needs. If you’re unsure of the size you need, one of our friendly customer service members can guide you along the way.

Putting Your Dumpster in the Wrong Place

You want to choose a location on your property that is convenient and safe. Placing your dumpster in the wrong area can make it difficult for you to throw your debris and difficult to pick up. It’s best to choose a location that is hard and flat as well as away from any doors or windows. You also want to avoid blocking any walkways.

Overfilling Your Dumpster

Overfilling your dumpster is dangerous and can end up costing you more money. It can also lead to pollution and can lead to health problems if decomposed particles get into the air. An overflowing dumpster can also attract rats and other rodents to your property. The best rule is to not exceed the fill line on the dumpster. This will ensure safe and efficient dumpster use and removal.

Putting Hazardous Materials Inside

You don’t want to put any hazardous waste inside your dumpster. This is not only dangerous for you and those who are handling your dumpster, but it also puts the environment at risk.

At Sweitzer Waste Removal, these are the items that are not allowed in our dumpsters:

  • Hazardous or medical waste
  • Vehicle or tractor batteries
  • Gasoline
  • Diesel Fuel
  • Oil
  • Paint
  • Tires

If you have other items you want to put in a dumpster and are not sure if they are accepted, you should always ask first rather than just throwing them in.
