Before You Rent…
Renting a roll-off trash canister in Philly can be one of the best decisions you’ll make when it comes to your next big home project whether it’s a bathroom renovation, kitchen remodel, landscaping project, or anything else you can think of. A low-price rental provides a convenient spot to place all of your garbage as it’s being generated by your project rather than having to micromanage multiple piles of waste. If you take a few minutes to gather some information below before you commit to renting a junk canister, we think the whole process will be a lot easier for you at the end of the day! It could also save you a few bucks by knowing what you should expect to pay for and what you shouldn’t have to fork out some cash for.
Figure out what kind of materials you’ll be tossing.
Even if you just do a quick walk through of the room/location you’ll be remodeling it can give you a good idea about the size and amount of objects you’ll be throwing away. For kitchens, think about the appliances you need to get rid of. If you’re doing a room you want to knock some dry wall out of for an expansion, estimate the thickness of the wall; obviously thicker walls will generate more waste. One important thing to figure out is whether you have any hazardous materials in the location that may not be allowed to be disposed of traditionally. Some materials will require a special permit or procedure to safely dispose of and should be brought up to your waste management specialist to determine your best course of action and what effect it will have on the price.
The type of waste you’re throwing in a bin is also helpful. There are price differences on weight and volume of the trash when you take it to a recycling/processing facility which could end up affecting how much you’re quoted. This also provides enough information to estimate the size of the canister you’ll be renting: 10yd, 20yd, 30yd, 40yd, etc. as this also affects how much it’s going to affect the price for you at the end of the day. It’s typically better to rent a trash container slightly too large than too small as the number of loads being brought to the dump increases the price as well. The price difference between a 30 yard versus a 20 yard canister is likely less than having to take two separate trips with a single 20 yard bin and so on.
Preparing For Your Container Delivery
Having the area you’ll want the waste canister delivered to can help hurry along the process as well. These are massive blocks of metal you’ll be placing on your property and filling with tons of debris. We don’t recommend you place the canister on your driveway without a tarp in order to prevent scratching the cement/gravel. We also recommend placing some spacers on your grass should you decide to place the canister on plant life to avoid killing your grass or bushes. A few simple 2 by 4 pieces of wood spaced along the area will greatly help reduce the affected areas.
Another helpful tip is to leave enough space for the canister delivery driver to be able to back up to the trash container for picking it back up easily. The fewer turns and obstacles the driver has to make, the easier the whole process. Renting a waste canister really shouldn’t be more than a 10-15 minute long phone call or email to the rental company you decide to go with. They should be helpful, friendly and willing to explain the details we went over above in order to make you feel comfortable and confident in the rental company. They should also be able to answer any questions regarding any Philadelphia City building/construction permits you may need in order to begin your project. Typically these permits are in the $20 price range and are easy to apply for, but important to know ahead of time to avoid any holdups.
When looking for a trash container company to rent from, you have a lot of different options throughout Pennsylvania. What it comes down to is finding a company who will offer a good price, have experience, and know the requirements for waste disposal. Working with a company who knows the ins and outs of the local dumps, city ordinances, and permit requirements can save you a bundle of money by avoiding city fines and ensuring there won’t be any delays or holdups on your project. It’s in your best interest to get together a list of a few companies who can provide the dumpsters and giving them each a call for a price quote and just to feel them out. A 5 minute conversation where you ask a few pertinent questions to the sales representative will provide you a good indication of their level of professionalism and expertise. As there are plenty of companies in the area, there’s no need to rent from a company who doesn’t seem like they’re fit to handle the job you’re working on. It is common practice to call a few companies just to find the best price, as well.
Another important factor to consider when it comes to finding the right company is if they are environmentally friendly, a.k.a. “green” when it comes to disposal. Make sure the person you speak to over the phone is familiar with EPA regulations when it comes to disposing hazardous waste, otherwise they may simply dump toxic waste into landfills which is extremely bad for the environment. You should also make sure that your rental company is going to be sorting through your recyclable waste and making sure everything is sent to the proper facilities, rather than dumping everything into the landfill. The simple act of sorting your recyclables and sending them to a processing plant instead of sending it all to the landfill is responsible for a huge amount of household waste reduction. We are able to reuse a majority of the materials it takes to make common household trash items such as plastic bottles, cardboard, wood and so on. The ability to reuse these materials is key in a sustainable ecosystem and also reduces the materials we need to fabricate in the first place.
