Why Should I Rent a Dumpster?

Thinking of taking action and hiring a dumpster rental service for some extra waste you have sitting around? Here are some of the top reasons why you might need to rent a dumpster:

Landscaping Jobs

If you want to clear out your yard and redesign your outdoor space, you might need a dumpster to help you out. Dumpster rentals are perfect for small-scale garden clean-ups or large-scale commercial landscaping jobs.

For Moving

When moving out of your old space, there is probably a lot of junk to get rid of. You can get a dumpster delivered to your doorstep and clear out your space efficiently and quickly.

Likewise, if you are a property owner who needs to get rid of junk left by building contractors or old tenants, a dumpster service might be helpful. This is a good option to consider if you have tenants who've left a lot of trash in the space.

For Construction

We have construction dumpsters for construction debris that help to maintain a neat workspace and reduce workplace hazards. These dumpsters accept debris like wood, drywall, metal, and more.

Home Renovations

Replacing things like your garage door, picket fence, wallpapers, and even appliances is common for a homeowner. The amount of waste that comes with renovations can quickly pile up. Getting a dumpster helps to control this waste flow and keep your home clean and liveable.

How to Rent a Dumpster in Durham

Although you do not have to be onsite for the dumpster delivery, you must prepare the dumpster drop-off location beforehand. Ensure that there are at least 60 feet of space available in front of the designated spot for the dumpster. Additionally, make sure that there are no overhead obstructions like tree branches or wires above it.

To ensure safety while filling a dumpster, it is important to follow certain guidelines:

  • Avoid exceeding the rim level when filling the dumpster. Overfilling can cause unsafe transportation and may result in additional fees if we are unable to pick up the dumpster.

  • Load the dumpster by placing heavier objects at the bottom and lighter ones on top. This ensures that the weight is evenly distributed, making it safe to transport the dumpster.

  • Avoid disposing of hard-to-remove materials like glue or paint in the dumpster as they can cause damage and incur extra fees.

Once you have completed your use of the dumpster, let us of your desired pickup date by contacting our customer service or accessing your account. Failure to schedule a pickup will result in an automatic pickup at the end of the 14-day rental period.

After we pick the dumpster up, we will transport it to a facility where it will be weighed. If the weight is within the specified limit that you have chosen, no additional fees will be charged. However, if the weight limit is exceeded, an excess weight fee will be incurred and we will loop you in on the additional charges via an email with receipts.

How Much Does It Cost to Rent A Dumpster in Durham?

The rental cost of a dumpster is influenced by several factors such as the size of the dumpster, the duration of the rental, and the type of waste materials to be disposed of.

To obtain a precise quote for your dumpster rental, contact our team, and we will assist you in selecting the suitable dumpster size for your project. We will also provide you with a detailed breakdown of all the cost factors involved in the rental process.

The rental cost of a dumpster from our company is influenced by location because of transportation fees. The distance between your location and the nearest waste disposal facility influences transportation fees. Additionally, dumping rates for different materials can vary across different waste facilities, which can impact your final bill. However, we ensure our transparent pricing policy by providing you with a copy of the invoice from the facility.

At Sourgum, we collaborate only with certified and authorized waste disposal facilities to ensure that there are no undisclosed charges added to your final invoice.

The cost of your dumpster rental can also be impacted by the type of materials you dispose of, as each material has a different disposal fee. Some materials like concrete or organic waste require special disposal methods and should be placed into specific dumpsters for proper recycling.

When disposing of your waste, it's important to ensure that only acceptable materials are placed in the dumpster. Dumpsters filled with unsuitable materials may be charged contamination fees from the dumping facility.

The weight limit and size of the dumpster also impact the rental cost. For instance, dumpsters designed for heavy materials like concrete do not have a weight limit, while those meant for lighter materials such as yard waste may have a lower weight limit to save you money.

Moreover, the size of the dumpster can also affect the rental cost. Typically, larger dumpsters are more expensive than smaller ones.

If you're unsure of the appropriate dumpster size or weight limit to choose, there's no need to worry! Our experienced team has assisted numerous customers with their dumpster rental requirements, and we're pleased to offer guidance to help you make the best decision for your project.
