Considerations for Residential Dumpster Rentals
When you’re renovating your home, you’ll need a way to dispose of all the waste. A residential dumpster rental is a great option, and redbox+ Dumpsters of Northeast Atlanta can help you choose the right size and type of dumpster for your needs.
What can you throw in a residential dumpster?
We can take most of the waste that comes from home improvement projects, including:
- Broken lumber + drywall
- Concrete, bricks and blocks
- Tiles + flooring
- Yard waste
- Construction debris
What can you not discard in your residential dumpster rental?
There are a few items that you can’t throw in a residential dumpster, including:
- Flammable items
- Toxic, hazardous or corrosive materials
- Paints (even cans)
- Motor oils
One good rule of thumb when it comes to household hazardous waste (paint, refrigerant, tires, etc.) is if YOU think it’s hazardous, it’s probably hazardous for us, too. Some municipalities and landfills have additional restrictions or charges for certain types of waste, so please contact your local redbox+ Dumpsters of Northeast Atlanta team to discuss what you are planning to put in the dumpster.
Estimating Residential Dumpster Size
Next, you’ll want to consider how big your home improvement project is and how much waste it’s going to generate. It’s usually easier to think of the amount of waste in terms of pickup truck loads.
Here’s a rough breakdown of dumpster size and capacity that may help:
- 10-Yard Dumpster = 3 Pickup Loads
- 15-Yard Dumpster = 4.5 Pickup Loads
- 20-Yard Dumpster = 6 Pickup Loads
- 30-Yard Dumpster = 9 Pickup Loads
- 40-Yard Dumpster = 12 Pickup Loads
