One of the mainstays of the television crime drama is the back alley dumpster. How many times have you seen your favorite cop show where the detectives need to climb into a dumpster looking for clues? It’s almost as if every dumpster is some kind of magnet pulling in guns, knives, phones and purses. In extreme cases the bodies of victims have ended up in a dumpster. That’s because the very nature of a dumpster is one of “drive-by availability.” In other words, if you’ve got something in your car you want to get rid of and you see a dumpster you’re going to toss that object. Now imagine if you will that a dumpster is sitting in your driveway. Do you want that to be turned into a crime scene?
Obviously, that is a worst case scenario but it points out the biggest issue with renting a dumpster: you just don’t know what you’re going to attract. It might not be so bad if the dumpster could be dropped off in the morning and picked up in the afternoon. The problem is that most dumpster rental companies require you to keep that dumpster at least for 24 hours. Others require a minimum 3 day rental. Even if it only takes you a few hours to fill up that dumpster you’re still going to be stuck with all the potential problems.
Then there is the issue of placement to contend with. Although your front yard is your property the street in front of your house is not. If you place a dumpster there you might need a special permit especially if it is going to be blocking access to parking or become situated on a street cleaning day. Permits aren’t free, either. That will be an additional charge that could be tacked onto the rental fees.
The better alternative to renting a dumpster would be to hire Junk King Orange County. Junk King is part of a national franchise of junk removal specialists. When you hire Junk King OC you also hire the Junk King crew. These are the professional haulers who will carry out whatever items you want taken from your home or yards. That’s the other big difference with Junk King: You won’t have to do any of the heavy lifting. Instead, the Junk King crew will climb down the basement stairs or up into the attic. They’ll go into the garage or in the backyard. All you have to do is tell them what you want taken away and they’ll handle the rest. Junk King OC will also be in and out without any fuss. You schedule the appointment, they show up with their truck and the job is done. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
