Dumpster Rental Pricing Factors

If you are planning a renovation project or clean out for your New York home, chances are good that you will need a dumpster to properly dispose of your waste. Instead of spending several thousands of dollars on purchasing one, it makes much more sense to rent. If you are in the process of searching for a dumpster rental provider and gathering quotes, you may notice price disparities between different companies. In order to understand why dumpster rental prices can vary so much, it is important to understand what factors are involved in determining a rental price. These factors are:

  • Dumpster Size. This is the most obvious factor that impacts the price of your dumpster rental. The bigger the dumpster you need, the more money it is going to cost you.
  • Location. Your location also plays a role in determining how much you will pay when you rent your next dumpster. There are a few reasons for this; firstly, transporting a dumpster is not free for the company. The further they have to drive, the more it will cost them, and the more it will cost you. Your proximity to the nearest disposal site will also be taken into consideration, as well as the different fees that these sites charge to unload your waste.
  • Duration of Rental. The average length of a dumpster rental is between 7-10 days. Usually, each company will have a specify how long their rental period is; if you want to rent it for a longer period of time, you will have to pay extra (usually per day).
  • Other Fees. Not all materials all created equally, especially when it comes to dumpster rentals. Certain items, such as household appliances, electronics, mattresses, and car tires require special treatment in order to be properly disposed. Most companies will not accept these items unless you pay an additional fee.
At 1-866-We-Junk-It, we provide Long Island and New York City home- and business-owners with reasonable dumpster rental rates for their residential and commercial projects. To get a free quote for your next project and receive a $25 discount off your rental, call us today at 1-866-935-8654.

Things That Can’t Go in Your Rental Dumpster

If you
are planning a home renovation or large clean out project, chances
are you will need to rent a dumpster for your waste disposal needs.
While many people imagine dumpsters to be a large metal box that you
can throw anything in, that is not the case. There are certain items
which cannot be thrown in your rental dumpster, such as:

  • Toxic Waste. This
    is a broad category and can cover many items such as asbestos,
    batteries, fluorescent lights, and items which contain mercury such
    as thermometers. All of these items are dangerous to the environment
    and must be properly disposed of.
  • Hazardous Materials.
    This includes electronics and appliances such as televisions,
    computers, and refrigerators. It also includes pesticides and other
    types of poisons.
  • Medical Waste.
    Medical waste cannot be thrown
    in the dumpster because it presents a hazard to both people and
    wildlife. If a person was to come in contact with a used needle for
    example, they may have to be heavily medicated for weeks to prevent
  • Paints &
    If you are cleaning
    out a garage, shed, attic, or basement, you may come across old cans
    of paint and be tempted to throw them away – don’t do it. Paint
    contains harmful chemicals that have been known to contaminate water
list is not exhaustive. If you are unsure about whether or not an
item can go in your rental dumpster, ask one of our experts by
calling 1-866-935-8654. For more than 15 years, 1-866-We-Junk-It has

Dumpster Loading Tips

loaded properly, rental dumpsters can hold a lot of waste and be a
completely safe process. However, poor loading technique can not only
present potential safety hazards, it can waste valuable space and
even force you into renting a second dumpster. Use these tips to make
renting your next dumpster as smooth as possible.

  • Keep
    the path from the worksite to the dumpster as short as possible and
    clear of tripping hazards.
  • Avoid
    loading the dumpster above the indicated maximum fill line.
  • Load
    the dumpster evenly to distribute weight and prevent tipping.
  • Always
    wear proper safety equipment: gloves, boots, and a form of eye
  • Try
    to make the debris inside the dumpster as compact as possible. Large
    gaps or empty spaces can cause items to dangerously shift when the
    dumpster is picked up.
  • Do
    not get in the dumpster and jump on debris in an attempt to compact
  • Break
    things down before throwing them away to make an efficient use of
  • Do
    not throw debris in the dumpster if someone is inside of it.

4 Tips for Cleaning Out Your Home

year, thousands of homeowners make a resolution to get rid of the
clutter in their homes. If spring cleaning will be coming early for
you in 2015, use these tips to make your home clean-out as efficient
as possible.

Use the one year rule.
deciding what should stay in your house and what should go, follow
the one year rule. The rule is simple: if you haven’t used something
in a year, get rid of it. Be honest with yourself, if you haven’t
used an item in a full 365 days, what are the chances you will ever
use it again? Is the small chance you will one day need it worth the
space that it is taking up in your home? The answer is no, so throw
it away and forget about it.
Take baby steps.
out one room can feel overwhelming, let alone your entire house. If
the clutter is too much for you, break your house down into small
portions. Focus on one room at a time, and then break the individual
rooms into smaller pieces. For example, if you are cleaning a
bedroom, first focus on the closet, then under the bed, then the
dresser, etc. Just work piece by piece until the entire room is
sorted and cleaned, then move on to the next one. Before you know it,
your house will be as clean as it was the day you moved in!
When in doubt, throw it
you ever heard the rule of clothes shopping that states, “if you
don’t absolutely love it in the store, don’t buy it because you won’t
wear it”? This rule is similar to that, but it applies to cleaning
out your home. When sorting through all of your possessions, is
inevitable that you will pick something up and not know whether to
put it in the “keep” pile or the trash can. If you are not
absolutely positive that you will use the item again, odds are good
that you probably won’t, so toss it out or donate it to charity.
