According to the EPA, ever person can generate up to 4 pounds of garbage a day. If you were to hold onto that garbage for a year, that would mean a haul of 1,460 pounds of trash. Unless you’re a hoarding, you’re not going to have that much garbage. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t need to occasionally get rid of some bulky items. These would be all the things that can’t fit into your garbage can like sofas, chairs, appliances and construction waste. To get rid of that kind of rubbish you’ll either need to rent a dumpster or hire professionals for a junk pick up. Which is the better option?
In terms of the dumpster rental, you’ll have to contend with several restrictions. First, if you’re renting a larger container that will need to be placed on the street, then you’ll have to get a proper permit from the city. You’ll also have to block off at least 60 feet of clearance. That could include some of your neighbor’s parking. A dumpster rental requires a minimum term of three days. Most dumpster loads are weighed to determine the dumping fee. There could be a weight restriction with the particular company you choose for the rental. On the positive side, dumpsters can hold huge amounts of rubbish. Once loaded, the dumpsters will be retrieved and driven to the nearest landfill. You won’t have to worry about any of that garbage ever again.
