How high can I fill my dumpster?

You can fill your dumpster as high as you like, provided that you really do not load it higher than the sides of the container. Overfilling the dumpster could cause the waste or debris to slide off as the dumpster is loaded onto the truck or as the truck is driving. Overloaded or heavy dumpsters are just not safe, and firms don't carry unsafe loads in order to protect motorists and passengers on the road.

In some places, dumpster loads must be tarped for security. If your load is too high, it will not be able to be tarped so you will have to remove a number of the debris before it can be hauled away. This may lead to additional charges if it requires you to keep the dumpster for a longer duration of time. Don't forget to maintain your load no higher than the sides of the dumpster, and you'll be fine.

Determining where to place your dumpster can have a big impact regarding how fast you finish projects. The most effective option is to choose a place that's near the worksite.

Does my waste get recycled?

When you rent a short-term dumpster, your aim is to fill it up and have the waste hauled away. But if you'd like your waste recycled, you may have to really go about it in a slightly different way. Waste in the majority of temporary dumpsters is not recycled because the containers are so big and carry so much material.

If you are interested in recycling any waste from your job, check into getting smaller containers. Many dumpster rental businesses in Athens have a broad variety of containers available, including those for recycling. All these are normally smaller than temporary dumpsters; they're the size of regular trash bins and smaller.

If you need to recycle, learn whether the company you are working with uses single stream recycling (you usually do not need to sort the stuff) or in case you will need to organize the recyclable material into different containers (aluminum cans, cardboard, plastics, etc.) This can make a difference in the variety of containers you should rent.

Building Dumpster Rental in Athens - Do You Need One?

Although local governments often provide waste disposal services, not many of them are going to haul away construction debris. That makes it important for people to rent dumpsters to allow them to dispose of waste during construction jobs.

The most common exception to this rule is when you have a truck that's large enough to transport all construction debris to a landfill or landfill drop off point. In case you're working on a tiny bathroom remodeling project, for instance, you might find that you can fit all the debris in a truck bed.

Other than quite small jobs, it's recommended that you rent a dumpster in Athens for construction jobs.
