Debunking Dumpster Myths
Top 5 Misconceptions About Dumpster Rental
Although they are incredibly convenient and rather easy to acquire, many people have some misconceptions about renting dumpsters and steer clear of the idea. Here are the top five misconceptions we commonly hear at Waste Solutions 123.
Myth No. 1: Renting a Dumpster Will Cost too Much
Reality: While price is always a factor, you’re probably going to pay for the waste regardless of the removal method. Whether you haul the waste to a landfill or you break down the waste until you can throw it in with the weekly garbage, you are paying somewhere along the line.
We at Waste Solutions 123 offer drop-off and retrieval services in the rental price. Plus, when you rent, you won’t have to spend time making multiple trips to a landfill, paying for gas, or paying for landfill offloading.
Myth No. 2: If I Rent a Dumpster, I Can Throw Anything Into It
Reality: All waste removal companies have guidelines about what and how much you can throw away in a dumpster. Certain products require special care, and you may incur additional fees if you overfill your dumpster beyond recommended guidelines. Always ask about restrictions on using the dumpster to receive the most economical price on every removal project.
Myth No. 3: Renting a Dumpster Is too Inconvenient
Reality: Taking several trips to your local landfill is inconvenient. In comparison, renting a dumpster is as easy as picking up the phone. You’ll need to know some basic information about the type and amount of waste you expect to remove and a payment method, and then we’ll do the rest. Your representative will help you through each step of the process, so you won’t experience any surprises in billing or delivery/pickup services.
Myth No. 4: The Size of the Dumpster Doesn’t Matter
Reality: Size is one of the most important factors in determining your waste removal needs. Retaining a dumpster with either too little or too much space can unnecessarily raise the cost. If you’re unsure about size, our team can help you make an educated decision based on the project, amount of waste, and type of waste.
Myth No. 5: Individuals Can’t Rent Dumpsters.
Reality: Individuals rent dumpsters all the time. While commercial projects are more common, homeowners may need to rent one for home improvement projects, yard cleanup, and storm damage cleanup. If you have a sizable amount of waste to remove, Waste Solutions 123 can help!
