If you’re like any of a few million people stuck at home during the pandemic, you’re probably thinking about getting at some of those home projects that have been on the back burner for a while. Basement and garage cleaning, light remodeling, and general junk removal are great ways to occupy time during these cooped up days, and if you’re lucky enough to have a few extra pairs of hands sitting around the house as well, it might be a rare opportunity to really make a dent in that to-do list.
One of the things every home project needs is a solution for the waste that is generated when tackling a cleanup or remodeling job. Certainly, what can be recycled should be, whether to local Habitat for Humanity stores or thrift stores, and even the old “free curb alert” post can clear out a lot of things you’re ready to part with. But at the end of the day, any deep clean is going to generate garbage and you need to have a plan in advance for what to do with it.
A lot of industrious folks might figure they will just borrow a pickup truck and make trips to the local landfill or waste handling facility. But when you really stop and think about it, there is a better way. Rent a roll-off dumpster.
Many people think that roll-off dumpsters are just for contractors doing big construction jobs. After all, you see huge metal dumpsters on every construction site you drive past, overflowing with extra lumber, wire, insulation and whatever else clutters up a big job site.
But Redbox+ rents dumpsters as small as 20 yards, which is about six pickup trucks full of waste and the perfect size for a lot of home projects. Also, if you are bringing in help for your home project, you can rent a dumpster with a portable toiled attached, preventing an endless parade of dirty shoes into the ground floor restroom.
Even if you don’t expect to have six full pickup loads full of trash, a dumpster rental makes life ever so much easier. Look at it like this: Rather than finding a pickup truck to borrow and a waste-handling facility to bring loads to, and then driving through the city with garbage blowing out of the back of the truck six times, a rental dumpster is infinitely more simple. With one phone call, a rental dumpster appears and is parked exactly where you specify. When you are finished, another phone call gets it picked up. You don’t have to figure out where the waste handling facility is and drop off (and pay for) each load, which can often mean having to sort waste into appropriate areas of the dumping area yourself. Not only is that a headache, but also time is money and the amount of time you save having a waste management company deal with your trash is worth every penny you spend.
So when you’re ready for that home project, call your local Redbox+ provider. It will be the fastest and easiest way to check those long-awaited home projects off of your to-do list.
