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.

Do You Really Know What Junk Is In Your Denver Home?

The Denver Union Station is getting a makeover. Developers are going to maintain the historic charm of the building but there’s going to be some new neighbors rolling in. Plans are for 22,000 square feet of the ground-floor area to be split up into 10 retail stores and restaurants. There’s also going to be a remodeled 12,000 square foot lobby area and 40,000 square feet outdoor plaza. On the upper levels will be office for Amtrak and a 110 room hotel. Quite the overhaul. The good news is that the developers intend to keep the station open for business while all this work is going on.

What would you do to give your home a makeover? The “extreme” version would be tearing it all down and rebuilding from the ground up. But that’s not practical. The most common types of remodeling jobs in the Denver area are the addition of a bathroom or expansion of the kitchen. Both are crucial areas which can not only improve the quality of life but also bump up the resale value of the home. Often, you don’t really have to engage in a major remodeling project to spruce up your home. You could accomplish that task with two simple ideas: A new paint job and getting rid of all your junk.

Painting the rooms in your home is an opportunity to reflect your personality. You can stick with the basic white walls if that is your preference but why not think outside of the color box? A trip to your local paint store could open up the world of possibilities. Depending on the circumstances, it wouldn’t be hard to paint a room with furniture in it. Just push everything into the center of the room and cover it with a plastic tarp then tackle the walls. Focus on a room a day and you could have the entire place done in a week.

Naturally, before taking on a project like that you should really take care of the junk issue. If you’ve got too much junk cluttering up your home that no amount of fresh paint or remodeling will excuse that. A piece of junk is clearly defined as an item which you have no intention of ever using because it’s broken or simply no practical. Getting rid of that junk is the kind of project you should be working with Junk King Denver on.

These are the junk removal experts in Denver. With one scheduled appointment, you can clear you home of all those oversized items or piece of e-waste that you’ve been holding onto for no good reason. When you’re ready to talk about your junk, Junk King is the only call to make!

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 Basement Junk Removal

As far as precipitation goes we’ve had a very dry time around Denver in the last couple of months. All of that changed with the welcome and very wet relief of a batch of thunderstorms which recently rolled through the area. Over at the Denver International Airport there was an impressive 1.41” of rain dumped down in a single storm cycle. Measuring out on a ruler finds that 1.41” doesn’t seem very deep but it can quickly add up especially if your basement is downhill of all that rain. Many local residents woke up to find themselves ankle deep in water in their basements. That’s not something anyone wants to wake up to! If you should happen to find yourself on the receiving end of that kind of flooding you might want to reach out the Junk King Denver to help with what will certainly be a lot of basement junk removal.

It’s hard to bring stuff back to life after it has been swamped in a flood. We might be able to save photos by scanning them into the computer and applying a little Photoshop magic. But when it comes to things like clothes, furniture or anything else that might have gotten soaked in a basement flood then you’ll have to chalk it up to a complete loss. And if you had carpets in the basement then forget it: they’ll be goners. All of that mess can be gathered up by the Junk King Denver crew and carted off on the back of one of their expansive trucks.

Denver Junk Removal Prices

There is a real mess at the Pennsylvania Mine and it’s not getting any cleaner. Despite its title, this mine is located in the sprawling Colorado Mountainside just outside of Denver. The mine has long been abandoned but the damage from leaks lingers on. The problem is that no one is rushing to clean up the site for fear of lawsuits. You read that right: lawsuits. It turns out there are some “good Samaritan” groups who are happy to step in and do what they can to stem the tide of toxins but according to the EPA, those groups could end up being sued for the costs of the entire cleanup. That’s a little bit like charging you to clean an entire city block if you just pick up one gum wrapper to throw it away.

Fortunately, Colorado’s two Senators are working diligently with the EPA to get a waiver for a group like Trout Unlimited permission to do some voluntary clean-up. Inspectors have filed their official reports so everybody knows what a problem this is. The hope is that common sense will prevail and the clean-up can begin in earnest.

When it comes to your own clean-up project count yourself lucky that you don’t have to go through so much red tape. Your best course of action is also the easiest: all you have to do is call Junk King Denver.
