Tips for How to Properly Fill a Dumpster
Properly Fill Dumpster
When it comes to how to properly fill a dumpster Waste Solutions 123 can provide you with a few quick tips on how to load your roll of container. First you need to consider a few things, you may think that there is no way of properly filling a dumpster, which may be true, however there are ways to optimize the space within your dumpster, so that by filling it ‘properly’ you get the most out of it!
Each one of our dumpsters is labeled with “maximum fill” line. This is an imaginary line that runs along all four of the top rails of each container. State law prohibits us from transporting waste above the level of the top rail on the container all the way around. This poses a potential threat to other drivers traveling on roadways directly behind us in the path of travel. For obvious reasons, if something were to fall out or fly off of the dumpster load while going down the road, someone could possibly get hurt extremely bad and that is not something we want to happen.
In addition to not filling over the “maximum fill” line, properly filling a dumpster takes place inside the actual dumpster itself. By opening up our rear doors you are able to step inside and properly stack waste materials. This ensures you use the cubic yard volume to its maximum capacity.
By breaking down large items such as cabinets and countertops, you gain more volume taking the hollow and bulky aspects out of the materials.
Finally, to properly fill a dumpster, you need to make sure not to place any hazardous materials into the container. Again, all state and federal laws prohibit us from transporting hazardous materials. In addition to that, local transfer stations and recycling centers do not accept hazardous materials therefore you may face an additional fee.
