4 Tips To Help You Effectively Load Up Your Dumpster

When you rent a dumpster, you need to be careful about how you load up the dumpster. Most dumpster rental companies have rules concerning what you can put in your dumpster and how you can load it up, which is why you need to have a game plan for not just what you want to put in your dumpster, but how you plan on loading your dumpster up.

Know What You Can Put in Your Dumpster

First, you need to know what you can put in your dumpster. What may or may not go in your dumpster can vary from one dumpster rental company to another, although in general, you can't put highly flammable liquids, explosives, or anything poisonous into your dumpster. Some dumpster rental companies have even more stringent rules, so be sure to get a list of prohibited items so you know what you need to keep out of your dumpster.

Place Bulk Items on the Bottom

Next, you need to think carefully about how you place bulky items into your dumpster. Placing these items in the bottom of your dumpster is usually a good idea. When you place these items on the bottom of your dumpster, you can then fill in the space around the bulky items with smaller items, allowing you to make the most of the space.

Don't Overfill Your Dumpster

Finally, you need to make sure you don't overfill your dumpster. In most states, your dumpster rental company can't move the dumpster from your property if there is debris that is spilling out of the container. That is why you need to make sure you don't overfill your dumpster. It is better to rent a second dumpster than it is to overfill your dumpsters. If your dumpster is getting close to full, you need to stop putting stuff into it. It is better to rent another dumpster than to pay the fines you will need to deal with if you overflow a dumpster.

Spread Out the Weight

As you fill up your dumpster, you need to think about the company that will be transporting your dumpster later. They can't safely transport a dumpster that is leaning to one side because all the weight is focused on one side of the dumpster. You need to spread the weight evenly around as you load items into your dumpster.

When you rent a dumpster, you need to be responsible with how you fill the dumpster. Keep prohibited items out of the dumpster. Put bulky items on the bottom of the dumpster and spread out the weight evenly throughout the dumpster. Never overfill the dumpster; that could cost you. Talk to your dumpster rental company to get more guidance and guidelines on how to properly fill your dumpster.
