Even if you make an effort to limit the amount of trash and waste that your household or business creates, accumulating junk is almost an inevitability at some point in time. With many regions around the country approaching a serious landfill capacity crisis, reducing the amount of junk we send out to the curb is certainly an important part of developing a green lifestyle. Separating our organic wastes, making an effort to recycle, and donating used items instead of sending them to the dump are just a few of the things everyone can do to limit their “waste footprint.” However, even the most environmentally conscious person may at some time or another find themselves completely overwhelmed with an enormous amount of junk that needs to be disposed of.
Whether you are going through a deep clean of your living space, are planning to upgrade the office furniture in the business you own, or are helping an elderly relative downsize into a smaller apartment, renting a dumpster is often the easiest and most convenient way to help you deal with your junk buildup. Junk King of Worcester, MA is the regional leader in professional junk removal services. Besides offering regular junk removal services, we also offer full-service dumpster rental. Below, we offer our top four tips for what you need to know when renting a dumpster.
Tip #1: Choose a Dumpster Rental When You Need Time to Go Through Your “Stuff”
If you already know exactly what you need to get rid of, then renting a dumpster might not be the best option for you. For example, if you have an older couch that was torn apart by your pet, but don’t have a pickup truck that allows you to haul it off to the nearest donation facility, then a regular junk removal service is most likely the best way to get rid of that item. With Junk King of Worcester´s regular junk removal service, you simply have to pick a date and a two-hour window, and our junk removal professional will call you 15 minutes before arrival. We offer free, on-site price estimates, and can often take away your junk the day you call us.
If, however, you are planning on getting rid of several items that are cluttering your home or business, then renting a dumpster is probably the best option. We have flexible time tables for our dumpster rentals, meaning that you can rent a dumpster for one day to two weeks, depending on your needs. This flexible time will allow you to take the necessary time to go through your older items and patiently determine what stays and what needs to go.
Tip #2: Determine the Correct Size for Your Dumpster Container
Dumpsters come in several different sizes and are classified by the number of cubic yards of waste that they can hold. For example, the typical measurements for a 10 cubic yard dumpster are 14 feet long, 7.5 feet wide and 3.5 feet high. It can hold up to 10 cubic yards of debris in volume, which is about 50-70 33-gallon trash bags. In comparison, the typical size of a 4 cubic yard dumpster is just 6 feet long, 4.5 feet wide and 4 feet high.
The best size dumpster for your needs will be determined by the approximate amount of junk that you need to get rid of, and the available space that you have to place your dumpster. Junk King´s customer service representatives can help you determine the best size dumpster for your needs. You can text us an image of the junk you want to get rid of at 1-737-888-5865 and we can recommend the most adequate sized dumpster for that amount of junk.
Tip #3: Take the Time to Determine the Ideal Placement and Location for Your Dumpster Rental
Our junk removal professionals will install your rental dumpster wherever you determine is the best and most ideal location. Placing the dumpster at the end of your driveway might seem to be the most obvious location. However, it is important to think about how you are going to move your heavy, bulky junk from your home out to the dumpster location. Also, by placing your dumpster rental next to a public street, you might also find that neighbors or other people passing by will conveniently “use” your dumpster for their own trash removal needs. Lastly, some neighborhoods or homeowner´s associations may actually have ordinances that prohibit placing dumpsters on or near public streets. Again, our customer service representatives are more than happy to help you determine the best location for your dumpster rental so that getting rid of your excess junk is easy, efficient, and lawful.
Tip #4: Think about Where Your Junk is Going to End Up
Just because you are throwing things into the dumpster doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t feel a sense of responsibility for where that junk eventually ends up. Moving beyond that “out of sight, out of mind mentality” is important if we are going to effectively deal with the environmental and ecological crises we face. By renting a dumpster from Junk King of Worcester, you can rest assured that up to 60 percent of the junk that we take away will either be recycled, sent to donation centers, repurposed, or upcycled.
Tom Indge, the proud owner of Junk King Worcester, believes that junk removal services can play an important role in helping to deal with the environmental issues we face. “My father was always re-purposing and recycling when I was growing up; he was into being green before it was popular,” Indge says. Keeping the planet clean has always been a goal for him, and Junk King of Worcester goes the extra mile to ensure that all the junk we pick up, whether from dumpster rentals or regular junk pick up services, stays out of area landfills.
After years of working in the junk removal industry, our team has developed a huge network of relationships with donation facilities, thrift stores, and recycling operations where we can give your junk an opportunity to be reused, recycled, or repurposed. We know that furniture, appliances, hot tubs, and other bulky junk items take up a lot of space in the local landfill, and we also know that there are hundreds of families and other businesses that would be happy to renovate and put these items to use.
