This Is How We Fill Up A Rented Dumpster In Denver

Getting ready to use a rented dumpster? We’ve got some tips for safely and efficiently filling a dumpster so you can get more bang for your buck and have an easygoing experience. Junk King Denver has you covered with affordable prices, flexible scheduling, and award-winning customer service.

Rented DumpsterHere in Denver, we see lots of folks using their rented dumpster for home cleaning and renovation. Some people get inspired by tiny house living and want to ditch all the clutter. Other people use a rented dumpster for business purposes like emptying a rental property or small office.

Whatever reason you have for needing a dumpster rental here in the Mile High City, you can get it done with a Junk King MINI dumpster and these best practices:

1. Pick a Convenient Location for Loading

Think about where the debris will be coming from and how heavy the stuff is. The closer you can put the rented dumpster to your work zone, the faster and easier the project will be.

Denver does not require permits to have a rented dumpster on your own property. If a permit is required to place your dumpster on the street or sidewalk, Junk King takes care of the permit process.

2. Avoid Pockets of Empty Space

Make efficient use of the space to save money and prevent overflow. What you don’t want is dead space around furniture or bulky items where you don’t have small debris filling in the space. Consider dismantling some larger items. If some debris can get crushed easily, place it on the bottom and let heavier stuff sit on top of it.

3. Start Loading at the Back of the Dumpster

Rather than filling your rented dumpster from the bottom up, it can actually work better to start loading at the back of the dumpster (away from the loading door). This lets you stack debris more carefully and efficiently.

Don’t just toss everything in and let it fall wherever it lands. That’s very inefficient and may even be dangerous.

4. Try to Spread Around the Weight

Ideally, the weight should be consistent from side to side, front to back. When we haul away your rented dumpster, it can be very difficult to drive the truck if a ton of weight is sitting in one area. If you’ve ever driven an unevenly loaded moving truck, you know what we mean.

It’s also safer for you while loading the rented dumpster if the weight gets loaded evenly. You don’t want a crushed foot from something falling over while you are walking in and out of the container.

5. Know the Weight Limits for Construction Debris

With the helpful advice from Junk King’s experts, it can be easy to stay under the weight limit and avoid overage charges. The main concern is that dense materials—dirt and construction debris—weigh more than household junk, per the same volume. Random trash from cleaning out an attic is less likely to reach the 2,000 pound limit than a dumpster full of roofing tiles.

That’s why we advise you to fill the MINI no more than 1/3 full of construction debris or dirt. If you’re unsure or have a mix of items, just ask what we recommend!

6. Don’t Leave Objects Sticking Out Above the Top

Regardless of weight, you can’t leave things jutting out of the container. To transport a rented dumpster to trash and recycling facilities, it needs to have everything below the fill line. Carefully break down long objects and place larger items toward the bottom. If you leave smaller debris to go on top, you can jostle it around so everything rests inside the rented dumpster neatly.

7. Use Your Rented Dumpster for Recycling

Junk King Denver recycles tons of stuff as part of our commitment to Going Green. Besides metal, glass, and plastics, our team sorts other recyclables like dirt, lumber, cardboard, electronics, and stuff you wouldn’t think of like bicycles and toilets. Note that some special recycling fees may be passed on to the consumer if the recycling center charges their own fees.

Denver Debris Removal

In our homes, we are constantly reminded to keep our plumbing pipes clear. Actually, we’re reminded of that fact whenever those pipes become clogged! Typically, most homeowners don’t do a lot of maintenance on their plumbing until it is too late. Then it’s an emergency call to the plumber and a huge bill. A little preventive upkeep can go a long way towards avoiding those nasty backups. That’s why the city of Denver has been sending cameras down into the sewers. They are attempting to inspect every inch of the massive sewer system and the best way to do that is with a snaking robot camera. As it turns out, this was a good call because recently those cameras stumbled upon two exceptionally large blockages that were on the verge of jamming up sewage and dumping it out into the Sand Creek greenway.

When you consider that the wastewater produced by 1.7 million metro Denver residents has reached 130 million gallons a day that flow through 3,500 miles of tunnels then you can see the need to keep those sewer lines free of debris. Truth be told, that concept of a “debris free” existence is something we should all embrace. What kind of debris do you have around your home and property? Is it time to finally get rid of it all? If the answers are “a lot” and “yes” then your next call should be to Junk King Denver.

Ever since Junk King set up shop in Denver they’ve been helping residents and business owners clear out the clutter in their lives. How can they help you? Think about all those items in your home that are too bulky to throw out in the weekly garbage. Or what about all that e-waste that you know needs to be properly disposed of? Those are the kinds of junk removal projects that Junk King Denver has excelled at. Their crews will arrive at your home on the designated pickup day with a truck big enough to haul off whatever you’ve got to get rid of. Those crews will climb down the basement or go up to the attic to remove junk items. If you’ve got stuff out in the backyard like yard waste they’ll be happy to cart all of that off as well. Basically, if you want something tossed out Junk King Denver is your best friend.

The way Junk King works is simple: You’ll call for an appointment with a supervisor to assess the amount of trash you want taken away. This is important because you’re going to be charged by the amount of space your trash takes up on the truck. There will be no extra dumping fees, labor costs or “heavy item” charges. It’s all direct and to the point. Once you agree on that price the removal day will be scheduled. You’ll be amazed at how quickly Junk King can carry out all that clutter. Before you know you’ll be free of debris with plenty of open space all thanks to Junk King Denver.

Denver Patio Furniture Disposal

This summer a unique new rental business has popped up in New York. For a $100 folks can rent a backyard. This particular backyard is really an abandoned lot squeezed between two buildings that a pair of savvy entrepreneurs made a deal for. The “landlords” spruced up the yard with a couple of BBQ grills, coolers, lawn chairs and hula hoops. When they first advertised the yard they were swamped with 1,000 requests from potential renters. Apparently, folks in New York are starved for what most Denver residents already enjoy: an idyllic backyard. What kind of shape is your backyard in? Have you made the most of it during the summer? It’s not too late to give your yard a make-over.

Backyards evolved over the lifetime of a house. With young kids, that backyard becomes a place of adventure and fun all safely enclosed within the confines of a fence. This might mean assorted play sets, sand boxes and tree houses filling up the yard. As the kids grow older the need for a playground shifts into the need for a place where the teens can hang out or mom and dad can unwind after another hard day of work. Gone are the play sets and in their place would be cozy patio furniture. For folks who want to get their grill on there could be sections of a backyard devoted to an outdoor kitchen. Forget the old school grill on a set of wheels. Today’s serious grillers build a cooking station from the ground up complete with sink, countertops and storage areas.

Naturally, an area like that requires an inviting dining zone. Many memorable meals have been served in Denver backyards all throughout the warm months. But if your patio furniture isn’t as “inviting” as it should be then perhaps it’s time for replacements. Actually, this is probably the best time to go shopping for patio furniture. As the stores gear up for the fall, they want to move out their summer stock. You’ll find plenty of bargains to be had. After picking out your new furniture and scheduling a delivery you’ll have to make arrangements to get rid of the old stuff. That can be accomplished with a single call to Junk King Denver.

Junk King is the Denver based local business who specializes in all kinds of junk removal. Most folks call on Junk King to help remove the clutter from their garages, basements or attics but Junk King Denver is quite adept at back and front yard junk removal as well. Not only can Junk King help you get rid of your old patio furniture but they’ll also take away all the yard waste, piles of dirt, piece of broken concrete and wood you want removed. With one appointment from the Junk King you can return your yards to former glory and begin a new chapter in outdoor entertaining. What else is a backyard for?

Denver Moving and Junk Hauling

If you’re planning on moving to the Denver area, you’re going to need to know some things that the locals already are familiar with. First up, Denver is a great town. But it’s also a high town situated at around 5,280 feet about sea level. This might take some adjusting especially if you’re used to lower levels and like to work out. You might want to take it easy until you get used to the air pressure. Once you do get acclimated, you’ll be happy to note that Denver has been ranked as one of the slimmest cities in the state. That’s probably thanks in no small part to the 20,000 acres of national parks, 205 city parks and dozens of fitness centers. You just can’t help but get into shape when you live in Denver.

There’s always a great workout with a move. Even if you’re just going across town there’s still lots of packing, box shuffling and back and forth you’ll be involved in which can burn off the calories. Getting ready for that move means figuring out what you’re going to be bringing with you to the new place. This would be a golden opportunity to finally get rid of all that junk you’ve been hanging on to. In other words, do you really want to start out a new home with old junk?

Naturally, when you begin to pack up your life you’re going to find plenty of items you’ll want to toss out but what about all that stuff you can’t throw away because they’re too big? That sounds like a job for Junk King Denver.

Junk King are professional junk haulers who can be a big help with the move before your move. That move would be the move away from a life full of junk? Too much moving? With Junk King Denver you won’t have to worry about actual moving as much as pointing. That would be pointing to the stuff you want taken away. The Junk King crew will handle the rest.

Often folks like to have a yard sale before they move as a way of getting rid of this junk. Sadly, that involves a lot of extra moving you shouldn’t be bothered with. What kind of extra moving? Taking all of your stuff down to the driveway or front yard. And if you don’t sell your junk then you’ll be moving it right back where it came from. You can skip all those extra steps by simply letting Junk King take your junk away once and for all. It’s also a good idea to get rid of this junk because it’s going to save you money on the big move. And Junk King won’t be charging by the hour like your movers will. They charge by the amount of truck space you’ll take up. Make a fresh start in Denver the right way without junk.
