What You Should Know Before You Rent a Dumpster

Thousands of people rent dumpsters every day in the United States. From homeowners to contractors, people use dumpsters to make their cleaning, decluttering, landscaping, or construction jobs safer, easier, and more efficient.

Dumpsters make it easier to keep your work area clean, which makes it safer. Unsafe building materials lying about have sharp edges and can be tripping hazards.

Imagine spending an entire weekend cleaning out your garage or attic. You end up with a huge pile of trash bags, and even worse, you have an enormous pile of old furniture and appliances on your lawn. Hauling all that waste will be a nightmare!

Instead, rent a dumpster, have it delivered, toss your trash in easily, and call to have it picked up on Monday morning. Voila! You're done.

Even longer projects like home renovations will go faster when you have a dumpster rental. The time you spend driving to a waste facility is time you could spend tiling the new shower.

It costs much less than people think to rent a dumpster. However, you can't get a quote until you provide more information. Without knowing a few things, it's impossible for your dumpster rental company to give you an accurate quote.

Your location plays a part in determining the price of your dumpster because every waste facility has a different fee structure. The facility your waste goes to will help determine the cost of your dumpster rental.

Waste facilities have a fee structure with different amounts for every type of waste. Some materials can be recycled and will be less expensive to deliver.

Heavier materials cost more to transport. When you order your dumpster, you can choose from different weight limits depending on the type of materials you need to dispose of.

Sustainable Waste Disposal Technologies

All across the United States, towns, cities, and states have passed laws to promote sustainable waste and recycling practices. There are several innovative techniques being used by companies throughout the nation.

The top trends in waste solutions include using artificial intelligence to manage waste flow, robotics to sort waste, internet-of-things for timely waste collection, and advanced recycling technologies. Companies are also using decomposition technologies and analytical data to find the best ways to eliminate waste at the lowest cost.

Why is this important? Sustainable waste & recycling is essential to the future of the Earth, and everyone plays a part in the cycles of waste generation. When you rent a dumpster, what you put in it matters.

What Can and Can't Go in a Dumpster

The first thing that you need to do is find out if any of your waste can be recycled.

Recycling in Virginia Beach

Not only does the city of Virginia Beach have state-of-the-art curbside recycling services, but it also has recycling facilities to handle large amounts of yard waste and alternative recycling options for materials like metals, electronic waste, and batteries.

For more ways to upcycle your discarded materials, ask your waste service provider for assistance.

What Can Go In a Dumpster

If your materials can't be recycled, you can put them in the dumpster, unless they're hazardous, toxic, or combustible.

What Can't Be Put In a Dumpster

If you aren't sure whether or not your materials are hazardous, check to see if there is a warning label. If you aren't sure, ask your dumpster rental company to be on the safe side.

Hazardous Waste Materials

In Virginia Beach, you can use the drop-off services at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. There is a complete list of hazardous materials that they will accept if you are a resident of Virginia Beach.

How to Rent a Dumpster in Virginia Beach

Renting a dumpster only takes a few minutes once you have all the information you need. You can rent your dumpster online, and you can also call or email to place an order.

It's your responsibility to make sure you have a dumpster permit if you need one. Every municipality is different, and some require you to get a permit even if the dumpster is placed on your property.

In Virginia Beach, check the city's Right of Way Permits page for more information.

Your dumpster will be delivered on the date that you scheduled. You don't have to be home when it is dropped off, but if you want to be, ask for a delivery window and text alerts to facilitate.

A roll-off dumpster is, as its name suggests, rolled off the back of a delivery truck, and that requires some space. When deciding where to put your dumpster, keep these space requirements in mind:

  • You must have 60 feet of space in front of where the dumpster will go

  • You also need 23 feet of vertical space

  • The area must be clear of obstructions, vehicles, and piles of waste

  • Keep your dumpster away from doors and entries

You should also try to make sure that your dumpster isn't placed where you would have to walk on your landscaping to throw your trash away.

After you load your dumpster, you’ll need to call your dumpster rental company and ask them to come and get it. At Sourgum Waste, you can just log in to your customer dashboard and request the pickup online. Please don’t forget this step, otherwise, the dumpster company will pick the dumpster up after the end of your complimentary rental period which may incur per diem fees.

You will receive an email confirmation after your dumpster has been delivered to the transfer station, weighed, and dumped. If you stayed within the weight limit that you ordered, then you're done. If you went over the weight limit, you'll be charged overage fees, which will be explained in your email.

Choose the Best Dumpster Rental Company

Finding the best dumpster rental company will make your experience much smoother. Look for these qualities when you choose a waste service provider:

Excellent Customer Service

It's easy to tell if a company cares about customer service. Call them and ask them some questions. You'll get a feeling for how helpful the company is right away.

You can also Google their business and read reviews. No one expects a company to have zero negative reviews, but if you see several, then that's a good indicator that the company doesn't provide excellent customer service.

Transparent Pricing

One problem that people have with dumpster rental companies is hidden fees. Make sure the company you are working with has transparent pricing.

Visit their website or give them a call and ask them about how they price their dumpster rentals and if there are any hidden fees.

Commitment to the Environment

If a company's stance on the environment matters to you, then you aren't alone. More and more, consumers are looking for green companies.

No industry is better situated to create positive changes in our environment than a waste & recycling company. They should be taking every opportunity to help reduce or eliminate waste in your community and on Earth.

Dumpster Sizes & Types

Because there isn't just one type of waste, there isn't just one type of dumpster. In modern waste disposal, getting waste materials to an upcycle stream starts with keeping them separated.

Here are some common dumpster types:

Choosing the right size dumpster is critical to the success of your project. If you order a dumpster that's too small, you'll just have to get another one to finish your project. Choose too big and you may be paying more than what you needed to.

How to Choose the Right Size Dumpster

Don't hesitate to call your dumpster rental company to ask for their advice. They have the knowledge and expertise to help you find the right size dumpster.

Dumpsters come in several different sizes, which are measured in cubic yards.

To calculate the cubic yards, you measure the length, width, and height of a dumpster in feet, and multiply those numbers together. The result is cubic feet, which you then divide by 27 to get the number of cubic yards.

10 Yard Roll Off Dumpster

A 10 yard dumpster is the smallest size available, and is best if you do not have a lot of debris or the space to fit a larger dumpster. A 10 yard dumpster can hold 10 cubic yards of material, about 4 pickup truck loads, typically holds approximately 2 tons of debris.
