Considerations for Residential Dumpster Rentals
Before diving head-first into the DIY demo, you’ll want to determine the right roll-off dumpster for the job. A good first step for selecting a residential dumpster rental is to know what exactly you’ll be tossing out and confirm those materials can be discarded into a roll-off dumpster.
What can you throw in a residential dumpster?
Home improvement projects involve getting rid of a lot of different items and materials. At redbox+ Dumpsters of South Chicago & NW IN, we can take most of that waste, including, but not limited to:
- Broken lumber + drywall
- Concrete, bricks and blocks
- Tiles + flooring
- Yard waste
- Construction debris
What can you not discard in your residential dumpster rental?
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 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:
- 20-Yard Dumpster = 6 Pickup Loads
- 30-Yard Dumpster = 9 Pickup Loads
- 40-Yard Dumpster = 12 Pickup Loads
