Renting A Dumpster For Renovation Projects


When you own a home, there are times when you may want to do major renovation work to it. You typically would hire a company to come in and do the work for you. They will often not include in their pricing a way for you to get rid of the debris that will be produced by the renovation. If they do include this, they will take care of renting a dumpster for it. If it is not included, you will need to rent a dumpster to get rid of the debris. There are some things you need to know before you rent a dumpster for this type of debris removal. 

Contacting A Rental Company For Debris Removal 

When you are getting rid of renovation debris, the company you contact to rent a dumpster from will need to know this. Construction debris is disposed of differently than other types of debris. There are certain rules and regulations regarding the removal of construction debris and you should make sure the rental company knows what you will be getting rid of. Some companies will not take this type of job because the rules are too strict and they have difficulty getting rid of this material. Look on the internet under dumpster rental Chicago to find a company that will be able to help you. They can give you an estimate for the price of the rental and also how long you will be able to rent it for. Most rentals will be based on a weeks time and if you need it longer they will adjust the price. 

How Much Material Is Allowed In A Dumpster 

When you contact the company you will be renting from, they will ask you an approximate amount of debris you will have. Depending on what your answer is, they will send the dumpster that is sized for that amount. They will also let you know how high the debris can be loaded inside the dumpster. If you go over the amount of debris or higher than they have allowed, they may ask you to remove some of it before they can take the dumpster away. Each load will go by weight and if you exceed the allowable weight, they will add this to the charge they have given you. If you have rented the dumpster for renovation materials, they will not allow any other type of debris to be placed in the dumpster. Since they are following rules that each town has put in place for debris, they will not be able to dispose of any other type of material that is inside a dumpster. 

Renting a dumpster is relatively easy and they can often drop one off at your home within a day or two. When it has been filled to capacity, they will return to remove it from your home. Most contractors will have a dumpster filled within a couple of days so that the company can remove it before they begin their other work.
