What is a Rental Dumpster, and Why do You Need One?
The average person in the US produces hundreds of pounds of waste annually. Fortunately, a lot of that is small household trash and garbage that a weekly collection service can pick up. But what about when there is too much stuff? Or is the stuff just too big to take out by yourself? What if no one takes the thing you need to get rid of?
Dumpster rentals are one answer to your removal needs. They operate by a removal company dropping off the dumpster on your property or street. The dumpster is left there for a few days, then is collected by the company again. The removers calculate your costs, and if you agree to the price, your junk is gone.
The most preferred self-removal choice in the nation is the dumpster rental. It comes with a laundry list of benefits, including some specific to Junk King:
- Additional time to sort: dumpster rentals are the best way to take your time during removal. For hard choices, extra time is necessary. Items that give you doubt about if to throw them away or not should have longer consideration time.
- A compact solution: Junk King’s MINI dumpster is one of the smallest removal solutions on the market—but don’t let its size fool you; these dumpsters can handle over three tons of junk and debris.
- Complete privacy: let’s face it, no one wants strangers in their home. Dumpster rentals ensure that you maintain complete privacy until the transactions are finished. Further, Junk King is unique because you can order contactless removals through our self-service option.

Why You Need to Use A Rental Dumpster for Your Next Home Remodel
Contractors Don’t Typically Arrange for Cleanup
Contractors should be good at what they do—which might include not accounting for cleanup services; realistically speaking, it’s not part of their responsibilities. Instead, the onus is on the property owner to arrange for cleanup. A rental dumpster takes the stress out of every remodeling cleanup since the dumpster can sit for multiple days as the new modeling is completed. Further, ordering a full-service option from professional services can remove your waste in as little as two hours. Still, the other side of that is anything left over will have to be removed by yourself unless you call us again.
There Will be Left Over Materials
If you’re looking to add completely new elements to your home, anticipate there may be leftover materials. This isn’t a bad problem since extra paint, carpeting, flooring, shingles, and other home improvement stuff can be handy. This is especially the case for homes with pets or children. That said, there is a point where one should remove extra materials for everyone’s safety and sanity.
Dumpsters Will Take Almost Anything
Junk King will take anything except for hazardous waste—varnish, motor oil, and herbicides. Household wastes like plastics, cardboard, e-waste, and food waste can be taken by our trucks; what makes us unique is our ability to take more than the average removal company. Resident services are also unreliable for remodeling assistance since they consist of smaller loads.
Rental Dumpsters Can Keep Others Safe
One of the most important aspects of any remodeling project is how you will keep everyone safe. Contractors will be insured, but what about pets, kids, or nosy neighbors walking through the construction zone? Rental dumpsters will allow contractors to throw all the used or old materials they don’t need. This will also keep all these materials off the ground, saving the grass from rusty nails or wood splinters.
What is the Best Way to Make Sure I Rent the Right Size Dumpster?
Traditional Dumpsters Vs. Smaller Options
What comes to mind when you think about a traditional-style dumpster? Probably a giant steel container coated in bird poop and mystery stains. These are too big to fit anywhere but the street too, so if you got one, all the neighbors knew; Deborah even upped her nasty morning glares as a symbol of disapproval for your “new eyesore.”
We don’t like Deborah, but we like the ideals of the traditional dumpster; what they lacked in grace, they made up for in utility, and sometimes that came at a steep cost too. There are better options these days—dumpsters can be small enough to fit in a standard residential driveway while also being heavy-duty. The Junk King MINI can carry multiple appliances, fit in your driveway, and still be big enough to fit more junk in.
Size Matters When It Affects Cost Calculations
Traditional dumpsters were always filled and then weighed or whole-cost. Weighing the junk was always a problem for people removing heavy items like appliances; the heavy junk would eat up the cost margin fairly quickly. Some junk removal companies today still calculate their rates using this method—Waste Management’s Bagster, for example. On the other side, traditional dumpsters that calculated their cost by “selling the space inside the dumpster” also hurt clients’ bank accounts.
Selling the interior space of the dumpster allows companies to say you are paying for the entire interior, regardless of if the space is being used. What this means for the client is that you are losing money unless the whole dumpster is filled. Subsequently, property owners will try to fill all the space to avoid this loss, and often they end up catching fees on the other side: overload.
When Junk King was founded in 2005, when we learned about these problems in the industry, naturally, the only logical solution was to create our pricing plan, to eliminate the unnecessary costs incurred by traditional dumpsters and pricing models. To that end, Junk King still has this new model, which saves our clients hundreds; with Junk King, you only pay for the space you use. That means heavy items aren’t a worry, there’s no pressure to fill the space or lose money, and it’s pretty hard to get overloaded.
Pick the Dumpster that Fits Your Needs
Picking the dumpster that fits your needs may seem obvious, but we can complicate the message behind it needlessly. You should only choose to work with a rental dumpster if it does what you need. This can mean ordering a smaller dumpster for a smaller amount of removal space or looking at budget-friendly solutions in your area. At the same time, it’s important to consider if the dumpster you get can handle your junk. For example, the Bagster may be a budget-friendly option, but that doesn’t matter if you can’t remove your grandmother’s refrigerator with it.
What are the Acceptable Materials to Put into Your Rental Dumpsters?
What Kind of Items Do We Accept?
Junk King will remove and dispose of anything except hazardous wastes. Hazardous wastes include automotive fluids like motor oil, cleaning products, varnishes, herbicides, and pesticides. Professionals must take hazardous wastes like these to the local Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) facility.
For everything else—Junk King is there. Our professionals take all manners of household waste and trash, debris, furniture, and just about anything else you can reasonably own. What’s even better is that Junk King is recognized as the Greenest Junk Removal Service in North America. This distinction comes from our 60%+ recycling, reusing, or donating out of every haul.
