It’s often said that the garage of your home is where unfinished projects go to die. It also serves as a storage space for all those things in your home that you don’t really need, but can’t bring yourself to throw away. If your garage isn’t used to house your car, it’s probably housing old toys, piles of old books or magazines, broken tools, half baked workshop projects and more. With spring just around the corner, there is no better time to purge your junk with a weekend garage cleanout project. Keeping the size of the planned cleanup in mind, a dumpster rental may come in handy to help you get the job done.
Most Texas city waste collection teams will only pick up a certain amount of trash from the curb, which means that you will need to make other arrangements for large items, oddly shaped items, or, large volumes. The best bet would be to look into a residential dumpster rental for your weekend clean up needs. This way, all you have to do is toss your undesirables in the dumpster, and call for a pick up at the end of your project.
What Size Dumpster Rental Do I Need?
Residential dumpster rentals are available in a variety of sizes. Choosing one that is too small will result in the need for multiple trips and choosing one that’s too big will just be a waste of money you could have saved for other work around your home.
Most residential dumpsters are able to hold anywhere from 10 cubic yards to 30 cubic yards of debris. To put it into perspective, a 6 cubic yard dumpster rental will allow you to load up to 3,000 pounds of junk. This is equal to roughly 3 pick trucks full of unwanted items. This is the perfect size for small garage clean outs or single car garage clean outs. The larger space or the more junk you have, the larger the dumpster you will need. Prior to hiring a rental dumpster, evaluate your space and your anticipated amount of items you plan to have hauled away.
Things NOT To Put In The Dumpster
While most junk can be tossed into the dumpster for direct disposal, there are a few items that should be kept aside for proper disposal. Toxic components such as paints, solvents, batteries and other chemicals should never be placed in a dumpster or regular trash can. These all contain harmful toxins that can create an environmental hazard if they leak out in the landfill.
