7 Reasons Why Renting a Dumpster for Your Residence Is a Great Idea!

We are always looking to upgrade and renovate our homes. However, whether your home improvement project is a big or small job, it requires debris removal. Even the most minor projects produce enough waste build-up that the removal process can be stressful.

Where will you find a place to put all the debris left over from the home improvement job?

If your home improvement involves any gutting or tear-down portion of the work, renting a dumpster is something you should think about!

Contrary to popular belief, dumpster rentals are not only used for large-scale home improvement projects!

What is a dumpster rental service?

A dumpster rental service is when a company drops off a dumpster in different sizes based on the order and job to be used on-site at your residence. Then after the rental is complete, the dumpster is removed, and everything inside is thrown away for you.

Renting a dumpster is most commonly used when there are massive projects done in homes such as remodels, cleaning out an attic or basement, additions being put on a home, extensive landscaping projects, or when damage has been done to the home like flooding. However, dumpsters can also be used for smaller projects such as cleaning out a home before or after moving.

Sometimes people think renting a dumpster can be a lot of work and often challenging. IT ISN’T!

Once you learn the benefits of renting a dumpster removal service for your property, you will change your point of view, and your home improvement projects will go a lot easier.

Benefits of Renting a Dumpster for your Residence

We know it sounds crazy, but there are multiple benefits to renting a dumpster for any home improvement project. Here are just a few:


There are always many different types of materials with home improvement projects, small or large. All those materials need to be sorted and placed somewhere unless you have a dumpster.

Toss it and forget it is the theme of having a dumpster delivered to your driveway. For any project you have, simply chuck your junk, and let us take care of the rest!

One Spot, One Opportunity

With a dumpster, you do not have to worry about making piles for wood or glass as the project goes further. There is no reason for sorting out all the different waste and materials for the project. There is simply one spot for (almost) everything to go – the dumpster!

Safety Concerns

Any project can be dangerous. With most improvement projects, you are working with glass, wires, wood, and other objects that can be dangerous. There is a considerable risk of injury on these types of projects. There is a liability for all the risk of injury for both the contractors and you!

However, having a dumpster lowers the risk of injury for anyone that has to be working on site. In addition, with everything going into one place for waste, there is less clutter, allowing more workspace to avoid danger and injury.

Getting Your Money’s Worth

There can be time crunches in some improvement jobs – after all, time is money. But, believe it or not, renting a dumpster creates better productivity with the project at hand.

When the contractors do not have to worry about waste and debris disposal, they can focus more on the project. In addition, since the dumpster is conveniently located in just a designated area, they can finish the work swiftly with an improved workspace, fewer things to move around, and less time wasted on taking the waste offsite.

As a result, your improvement project will be completed on time, every time! Getting everything done on time takes away all the stress from time-sensitive projects.

Saving Some Dough

Did you know that the more waste you have, the more it costs?

While that seems obvious, it isn’t often considered when doing a home improvement project. You can end up spending exorbitant amounts in hiring multiple people to do the same job renting a dumpster can do.

With a dumpster, everything you put in is removed for you once the project is complete. This saves you a ton of money, and it causes less stress because the waste doesn’t stay on your property.

The Friendly Dumpster

Renting a dumpster for the removal of waste is eco-friendly. When you have a dumpster being used, you create a one-trip removal that eliminates a large number of carbon emissions.


When you rent a dumpster, there is absolutely nothing to worry about! The dumpster company follows the waste disposal laws and regulations – this way, you don’t have to be concerned about the process or where the waste will go. It is out-of-sight and out-of-mind.

With all these benefits, it is safe to say that renting a dumpster is even better than you could imagine. So now, what do YOU need to do when it comes to dumpster rentals?

Putting the “U” in Dumpster Renting

There are specific things you should think about when renting a dumpster. One of the most important things is to be aware that there are multiple-size dumpsters to rent – and your project will determine what size will work best.

When you call to inquire about a dumpster rental, be ready to provide some information about the project, and overall guesstimation on size (one room, two rooms, etc.). An estimation of the project will help determine the size of the dumpster.

An even BETTER option is to have the company come and evaluate the job on-site to provide information and ideas as you work together to come up with the best solution!
