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.
