Keep Your Trash Enclosed!

Most people think of trash as dirty and contaminated. It is true that not all trash is dirty, but you generally have enough dirty trash that you want to keep it away from other items, people, and surfaces. That's where garbage bins come in handy. They literally hold your trash. The best ones have secure lids, so they don't let odors out, and they don't let animals get in. Garbage bins are more complex than you might imagine, and new varieties are being created all the time. We have a lot to say about them. In fact, we have so much to say that we started this blog.


Things To Consider Before Renting A Commercial Dumpster

If you are in need of a commercial dumpster for your business, you will want to make sure that you are spending some time researching some of the things you will need to consider so you aren't disappointed or end up with a dumpster that isn't going to suit your needs. To help make sure that you are going to get the best dumpster for your commercial setup, you will want to check out the following things:

How Often You Need It Emptied

Some businesses will fill a dumpster a lot sooner than others, simply due to the type of business that they conduct. If you have a lot of garbage that is not able to be recycled, you will want to consider having the dumpster emptied every single week. This is especially important to do if you have to select a smaller dumpster because of a lack of space behind your building.

Ability To Lock It

Depending on where you live and the local laws, you might be required to keep your dumpster rental locked. You or an employee would have to unlock the lid or door to the dumpster in order to throw anything in. This is to prevent people from dumpster diving and potentially hurting themselves in the process. Being able to keep the dumpster lid or door locked also prevents animals, such as raccoons, from climbing inside looking for food and then potentially getting stuck in there. Make sure that you ask the dumpster rental company if the dumpster size you need is able to be locked and whether they provide the locks or if that is something you need to provide on your own.

The Contract

You want to know the details of the rental contract before you sign it. For example, are you agreeing to rent for a specific length of time or are you able to cancel the rental agreement whenever you see fit without paying a penalty? What are you responsible for in terms of maintaining the dumpster? Ask an attorney to read through the contract for you if you have a hard time understanding the fine print.

All you need to do now really is to contact some local commercial dumpster rental companies. Explain what your needs are, such as the size of the commercial roll-off dumpster needed, how long you need it for, and how often you might need it to be emptied. Compare the options that are available for you through the different companies and then make the decision on who you will hire. Do all of this soon so you can get your commercial dumpster in place.
