What You Should Know About Dumpster Rental in the Des Moines

Trying to get rid of unwanted junk is a regular part of modern life. Whether you live in the Des Moines – or anywhere else in the world – it’s something most of us take for granted. Unfortunately, there are times when you can’t put all your junk or debris in your household trash bin.

It could be that your items are too big or maybe that there’s just too much to get rid of with the household trash. In those situations, it helps to have another way to get rid of the big stuff. And one way to do that is to hire a junk removal firm.

In fact, for some projects, the best waste removal solution is to rent a roll-off dumpster for your junk. When it comes to dumpster rental, the Des Moines has a great option.

Do You Need to Rent Your Own Dumpster?

Of course, a dumpster rental is certainly not your only option for disposing of unwanted stuff. In fact, there are usually two other ways to get rid of your junk aside from renting a dumpster. You can do it yourself or you can hire a full-service junk removal company to haul it for you.

While the last option may be the easiest way, it can potentially be quite expensive if you hire the wrong company to pick up your trash, debris or junk for disposal. However, using a full-service junk-removal company certainly can be a convenient option since you don’t have to move anything yourself.

Which is why doing it yourself is not always a feasible option. Hauling junk or excess debris yourself means having a suitable vehicle and also being able to load and unload it yourself. And, for many people, this is not a practical option.

Renting a Dumpster as a Third Option

There are some situations when a dumpster rental is perfect for getting rid of large amounts of waste and debris. Maybe you have a large amount of material being generated by landscaping, roof repairs, renovations, and large-scale clean outs. Regardless of the source, except for hazardous material, using a rented dumpster for your trash is a great way to go.

Deciding which option is better for you depends on your need. For dumpster rental, Des Moines prices typically depend on your location, the size of dumpster you need, how long you will need it, and the company you choose to rent from. In addition, consider the amount of waste, and whether will be accumulating over many days.

So, when do you actually need one?

Around the Peninsula, most homeowners think they only need a dumpster rental if they have an overwhelming amount of junk or debris. But using a rented dumpster can be cost-effective for even smaller amounts of junk. Especially if you rent a dumpster from Junk King.

A dumpster rental can be an ideal option if:

  • You expect to generate debris over time
  • You expect to have 12 cubic yards of waste or less

Hiring a junk removal service may be better if:

  • All your junk is going to be in one place and won’t accumulate further
  • You have significantly more than 12 cubic yards of waste

Renting a Dumpster in the Des Moines

A dumpster rental is often the best way to get rid of large amounts of waste over a period of a few days. You can fill the dumpster gradually as you work through your projects instead of making multiple trips to a landfill. And once you’re done, you simply have the company and come and pick up the dumpster.

Des Moines dumpster rentals are relatively simple. Typically, it will go like this:

  • Call a dumpster rental company
  • Arrange a date for the drop-off
  • Fill the dumpster with junk
  • Have it picked-up when you’re done

Tips for Dumpster Rental in The Des Moines

Items not Allowed in a Rental Dumpster

Dumpsters rented in the Des Moines are subject to state-wide regulations that prohibit specific materials. Make sure that the materials you need to dispose of are suitable for a dumpster.

  • Common household hazardous wastes include but are not limited to:
  • Antifreeze
  • Batteries
  • Drain cleaners
  • Electronic Wastes (TVs, computer monitors, cell phones, etc.)
  • Glue and Adhesives
  • Household cleaners
  • Oven cleaners
  • Paints
  • Pesticides
  • Pool Cleaners
  • Solvents
  • Used Oil
  • Waste containing Asbestos
  • Wastes containing Mercury (thermometers, fluorescent lights, etc.)

In addition to those wastes listed above, household products that are hazardous waste can be identified from warnings on the product label. If the label information reads:

  • Danger
  • Poison/Toxic means it can be poisonous when ingested (by eating or drinking), absorbed through skin, or inhaled (breathed) – even a little bit
  • Corrosive/Acid means it can eat or wear away at many materials including living tissue
  • Reactive/Explosive means it can be explosive or produce a deadly gas
  • Ignitable/Flammable means it can easily catch fire
  • Environmental Hazard
  • Caution/Warning
  • Pool chemicals

Always contact an experienced junk removal company for clarification if you are unsure about anything you want to place inside your rental dumpster.

Time Periods for Rental Dumpsters

Many dumpster rental companies charge you for the length of time that you rent their unit, so it is critical that you make sure to check beforehand. Other companies, such as Junk King, only charge for the amount of space used in the dumpster for a set period of time. This can prove to be more cost-effective for many The Des Moines residents.

Rental Dumpster Placement

Rental dumpsters can be a convenient way to take care of your waste disposal project, but you have some logistics to consider. Dumpsters will typically be placed on your property, or possibly on the curb outside your home. However, some localities require a permit to have it on a city street or other public right of way areas, so should always check first.

Try to have it placed where it will be easily accessible for you and for the rental company, in your driveway or even a yard, if possible.

Sizes of Rental Dumpsters

Dumpsters come in several standard sizes and most people have seen the large, commercial, 40 or 20 cubic yard capacity containers. However, unless you really need a large dumpster for a commercial project, you won’t want one that big.

The good news is that Junk King Des Moines offers the dumpster which is a driveway-friendly, 12-cubic yard capacity container that only takes up an 8 by 12 foot space on your driveway or in your yard. And a 12-cubic yard dumpster can still comfortably hold all the junk tossed out from your garage or basement, or the piles of debris from your garden or home renovation project.

Dumpster Rental Costs in The Des Moines

Most dumpster rental companies start with a flat fee and then add in other costs. But your Peninsula Junk King only charges you for the dumpster space you use so this can be the most cost-effective approach for many The Des Moines customers.

In fact, if you do have a smaller project, the Junk King dumpster can save you money. But, because the dumpster holds up to 12 cubic yards, it is great for everything from major cleaning projects to minor home renovations.

Renting a Dumpster

When renting a dumpster, think about the type of company you want to work with as well as looking at their fee structure. Some charge by the day, others by the weight when it’s picked up, and others by the amount of space in the dumpster that was used. Most people find the last option to be the most cost effective.

As we have pointed out, dumpster rental companies use a few different pricing models, but most simply charge by the weight. Junk King likes to keep things transparent in our terms and conditions, however. We only charge you for the amount of dumpster space you use, and our prices include the delivery and pick-up, and any standard disposal and recycling services.

Here is some helpful dumpster terminology:

  • Load size: The Junk King dumpster holds up to 12 cubic yards of junk loaded by hand. You are only charged based on how many cubic yards you fill.
  • Bedload: For loose debris such as dirt, rocks, tiles, shingles, bricks, or chunks of broken concrete, a dumpster 1/3 full (or 4 cubic yards) is equivalent to a large truck bedload.
  • Daily rates: Our standard pricing includes up to 3 days of rental, after which a fee of $30/day will be added.

There May be Some Additional Standard Fees

The cost for a dumpster rental is the same regardless of what kind of waste you have, but there are a few exceptions. For example, there can be mandatory fees at the recycling center or landfill for special waste so, like all Des Moines dumpster services, Junk King must add on these costs. Examples would be electronics such as televisions and computers or bulky items like mattresses.

Plan Ahead

Plan on breaking down boxes or dismantling large, bulky items, if possible. This will minimize the space taken up in your dumpster.  Separate the stuff you want to get rid of and set aside the items you want to keep ahead of time. By being organized with your cleaning project before you rent your dumpster, you can avoid having to rent it for an extra day or two.

Save Money

There are a few ways to save money on your dumpster rental even before you book it. One is by choosing a company with the right fee structure. Also, you can avoid dumping materials that will result in extra fees or taking too long to finish the task and going past the end of your rental period.

Be Convenient

Make sure the dumpster can be placed in an easy-to-reach location. This way it can be dropped off and picked up quickly and easily. That’s another great reason to consider a dumpster from Junk King. They fit easily in driveways without blocking garage access, damaging your driveway, or causing pick-up problems.
