Dumpster rentals are a good way to remove a large quantity of refuse from a property. It’s important to prepare for the arrival of your dumpster. Make sure you cover the following before your scheduled delivery date.
Know the Dumpster’s Space Requirements
Dumpsters with different capacities will have different dimensions. While the size of the unit itself is important, it’s not the only thing to consider. You will also need room for the truck to pull in and offload.
Know Your Area’s Rules & Regulations
This step is important if you are renting a dumpster in a city, town, or an area that requires street parking. Your area may have rules about where you can place a dumpster. Make sure you are operating within the confines of the law and local codes.
Make Sure the Dumpster Site Is Free of Obstacles
Now that you know the amount of space required, you can make sure that your chosen spot is free of obstacles. That includes structures that might lean in nearby like walls, fences, and mailboxes. Also, verify that no vehicles will be parked in the area. You may need to check with your neighbors if you will be parking your dumpster on the street.
Check for Overhead Clearance
Overhead clearance should also be considered. Trucks may need to lift the unit up before placing it on the ground. That means there cannot be power lines, trees, overhangs, or other structures too low to the site. Contact Priority Waste to learn more about dumpster rentals and placement requirements.
