Looking To Clean-up Storm Damage From Your Property?

As tempting as it is to start cleaning up storm debris right away, it's always a good idea to track the storm using real-time updates to ensure the threat is entirely gone. This includes using weather sites, TV and radio stations. We highly recommend using The National Weather Service to stay informed.

Whether you braved the storms by staying home, or evacuated to a safer location, post-storm clean-up is overwhelming to begin with. The disposal of debris from your damaged home feels daunting and you may find yourself clueless about where to begin.

Depending on the magnitude of storm damage, clean-ups can take ample time and trips to the landfill; we are here to help ease that burden.

We Help You Reclaim Your Space

When disaster strikes, homeowners usually face the brunt of nature's force. In the US, billions of dollars are allocated to storm clean-up projects. The cleanup process after a storm or hurricane is tough to navigate. You must proceed with caution, especially when there is water damage along with debris from fallen trees enmeshed in power lines around your house.

When you need a dumpster to help you restore your property and stop further destruction. Sourgum Waste is here to help. We are an expert in dumpster rental service with 4 generations of experience of guidance to help you with your waste disposal needs.

Precautions While Cleaning Out Storm Debris

Storms can be a totally unpredictable event that can cause extreme stress. The clean-up work depends on the severity of the storm and the consequent damage it caused. Before you start picking up the debris and tossing it in your dumpster, make sure you are following the right safety precautions:

1. Keep children and pets away from all the fallen debris, accumulated water and sharp objects.

2. Protect yourself with the right gear and supplies - a dumpster, hard-toed shoes, gloves, masks, etc.

3. Segregate toxic chemical waste from recyclables and call a professional to handle any toxic waste.

4. Do not consume tap water until it is professionally inspected.

5. Do not use the septic tank until it's been checked.

Types of Dumpster Rentals For Storm Clean-up

Some areas may be more badly hit than others after a storm. Most states in the US provide municipal trash collection services that pick up vegetative waste that includes tree branches and yard trimmings but they usually do not accept larger stumps or building material waste.

To alleviate some of your stress, Sourgum Waste offers three solutions:

1. Roll-off dumpster rentals
2. Dumpsters for construction and demolition
3. Dumpsters for yard waste

Roll-off Dumpster Rentals

Storm debris dumpster rentals for homeowners

The best advice is not to panic and to rent a roll-off dumpster as soon as the area is safe to do so to start undoing the damage caused by the elements. They are the best option to remove large amounts of unwanted debris.

Throw in all the non-hazardous waste in the container, which we will deliver to a convenient place for you. The dumpsters are rectangular, with an open top, a door for easy loading of debris, and wheels to make it easier to drop off and pick up from the location.

Roll-off dumpster rentals come in the following sizes and average associated weight limits:

SizeDimensionsWeight limit
10 Yard Dumpster13 ft long x 8 ft wide x 3.5 ft high2 Tons
15 Yard Dumpster16 ft long x 8 ft wide x 4 ft high2.5 Tons
20 Yard Dumpster22 ft long x 8 ft wide x 3.5 ft high3 Tons
30 Yard Dumpster22 ft long x 8 ft wide x 5 ft high4 Tons
40 Yard Dumpster22 ft long x 8 ft wide x 7 ft high5 Tons
*Actual dimensions may vary slightly. Weight limits vary by type of debris and location.

Dumpsters for construction and demolition

At their worst, storms do damage real estate properties and can leave large amounts of debris lying around. Construction dumpsters are specially built and priced to properly and efficiently dispose of these wall remnants, flooring, roofing and more materials commonly found in storm-hit areas. These dumpsters are even sturdier than regular ones and thus robust enough to dispose of heavy construction waste.

Dumpsters for yard waste

Heavy storms can sometimes leave big heaps of landscape debris in your yard, thus making movement difficult. For such needs, Sourgum Waste provides yard waste dumpsters that you can use to easily toss branches, shrubs and other vegetative waste. Yard debris dumpsters come with a door in the rear that makes loading easy.

We divert as much of this collected yard waste to recycling facilities that turn it to mulch which can eventually be used for growing vegetables, or as composites. Best of all, yard waste dumpsters usually come at a flat rate pricing so you know what you're going to pay. No last minute surprises.

What You Can And Cannot Throw in The Dumpster

As a rule of thumb, you can put most things in a dumpster, except for hazardous materials. These typically include:

* Asbestos
* Flammables
* Chemicals or pesticides
* Dry cell batteries, lead acid batteries
* Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs

To safely discard these materials without causing harm to people or the environment, residents can visit the United States Environmental Protection Agency to learn how to clean up harmful substances that would otherwise pollute land and water when improperly disposed of.
