Dumpsters To Discard Large Items

October 19, 2020

There may come a time in your life when you no longer require the use of a large item, such as an old furniture piece or a used mattress, and you need to get rid of it. The only problem is: how? You can't just set that stuff out with your weekly trash pick up.

Bulky waste items can be disposed of in 3 different ways.

  1. Donation: Donating your used items that you no longer need is a great way of both cleaning out your house as well as helping someone who may use such items.
  2. Recycling: This option is great for the environment, and your bulky waste items can be recycled through government authorities.
  3. Disposal: The most common option by far. Most individuals will call a company to come get the items that are no longer needed or wanted.

For Disposal, the best solution? Rent a roll off dumpster!

Whether you’re moving, getting new furniture, or simply decluttering, it can be hard to know how to dispose of large, unwanted items. Renting a roll-off dumpster can be a quick and efficient way of getting rid of large items. Below are some advantages of a roll-off dumpster.

● moving large, bulky items such as furniture, concrete debris, mattresses, couches, etc.
● great for all types of materials that need to be discarded
● available in multiple sizes so you can select one based on your project needs
● items can be loaded into the dumpster at your pace

The basic process of renting a roll-off dumpster is by contacting a company that offers such services. Prices will vary and depend upon the location (area of the country), the size of the dumpster being rented, and the estimated weight of the items being moved.

After you’ve selected what type of dumpster you want, the dumpster will be transported to your location, and you can move in the items inside of the dumpster as quickly or as slowly as you want. Once you’re done, the company comes and picks up the dumpster.

Roll-off dumpsters are great for mattresses, couches, wardrobes, chairs, and other sorts of furniture, as well as tile, flooring, shingles, drywall, or anything else you need to get rid of. There are several items that cannot go in a roll-off. See below for details.

Most individuals also question whether they can toss in a mattress with their regular trash, and the answer is maybe. Some trash companies will haul them for an extra fee, but some won’t haul them at all. Mattresses are large and heavy, and usually not accepted by some trash collection services.

The following items cannot go inside of a dumpster:
● Refrigerators
● Tires
● Air conditioners
● Paint cans & chemicals
● Household cleaners
● Propane tanks
● Adhesives
● Medical waste
● Oil & gasoline
● Contaminated soil
