Rent a Dumpster Near Me

A common search phrase on Google is “rent a dumpster near me.” While this feels like it might be especially true this time of year, the search is relatively steady. It seems that people are always moving, renovating, cleaning out, or building.

 

We seem to always be generating the kind and amount of garbage that exceeds the capacity of our streetside containers.

 

So what is involved in renting a dumpster?

 

How much will you be throwing away?

Obviously, your first concern is the amount of garbage that you will be throwing away. With almost every home project it is self-evident that an extra trash can is not going to be enough to contain your waste.

 

By the time you’ve stripped wallpaper, taken out old drywall, thrown away old and now replaced plumbing or wiring, set a room up to be painted, and replaced furniture, you know your needs are great.

 

Most home renovations like this only require the smallest available dumpster.

 

But what if you’re redoing a whole floor, or a whole house? Or what if you’re doing new construction? Then you will need a larger dumpster, or a regular schedule for switching out dumpsters to keep your project moving.

 

What is “near me”?

The other important part of the calculation of renting a dumpster, and of this specific Google search, is the words “near me.”

 

Because we are used to running our own errands and tracking down our own supplies, many people who use Google to search for items, naturally add the words “near me” to every search as a habit. We might look for a “Home Depot near me” or to “buy a spud bar near me”  or “find a paint store near me.”

 

However, renting a dumpster is very different. You don’t have to go get it. You don’t have to empty it. You don’t have to take it back when you’re done.

 

The words “near me” in this search are helpful because they give you a range of local options, but they shouldn’t really affect your search too much. This is because the dumpster company you choose, like Big Daddy Dumpsters, will bring the dumpster to you.

 

And the transportation to and from your location will be covered in the standard cost, and will emptying it in the right landfill.

 

Sure, some dumpster companies will limit their work within a certain distance, but it is far further than you would think to drive for a good price on linoleum or a particular stone for your next project.

 

So the next time you ask Google “rent a dumpster near me,” remember that the terms are relative.

Spring Is Here! Organize a Life-Changing Garage Clean-out Day for Your Neighborhood

We have all been there. We have accumulated junk in our garage and basement for a couple of years, and we find ourselves at the awkward spot between too much to throw in the trash, but not enough to justify renting a dumpster.

 

Last year the solution was easy: you closed the door on the garage and ignored it for another year. Good for you – you found some time! But you did not solve the problem.

 

Well this year what if you try a different strategy?

 

This year, go together with your neighbors to organize a neighborhood clean-out day, and utilize the Big Daddy Dumpster three-day rental option. This will create a targeted, specific window of time for getting the work done, making it easier and more fun.

 

 

Garage clean-out challenges

There are lots of challenges involved in cleaning out your garage.

 

First, some of the things in your garage don’t belong in a dumpster. For instance, you should not put flammable liquids or biohazards in the dumpster, and you likely have a few gallons or more of these items in the back corner, over there beneath the shovels.

 

Second, some of the things you need to throw away are too heavy or too bulky to include in your regular trash. You can’t put that old lawnmower frame in the trash can. You need a little more space.

 

Third, some of the things you need to lift or move are pretty heavy.  that old door you removed in the basement remodel? You can probably move it yourself, but do you want to risk your back again?

 

These and other similar problems are solved by having a neighborhood garage clean out day.

 

 

A neighborhood garage clean-out day solves these problems

First, the problem of hazardous items.

 

It feels a little wasteful to carry one or two gallons of expired paint thinner and paint to the appropriate county drop-off location. But if you join together with your neighbors, suddenly you find that you have a small truckload. Now one person, or maybe two of you, are taking the trip for the whole neighborhood. Now you are building friendships, helping others out, and really building the spirit of community.

 

Second, bulky items. When you go together with your neighbors to split the expense of a dumpster, you help everyone dispose of all their bulky items at once.

 

Third, heavy items. Good news, everyone is working outside this weekend. And you neighbors who just lifted one heavy thing and threw it in the dumpster will be glad to help you with throwing something else in. That’s just the energy of a good, productive day.

 

Transform your community this summer with a three-day rental from Big Daddy Dumpsters for a neighborhood garage clean-out day!

Spring Cleaning Time is Here! Take Care of Your Pets!

With the sun shining, days getting longer, and the snow finally melting under warmer weather, we can’t deny it any longer. Spring cleaning time is here.

Of course, our favorite is throwing a spring cleaning party! Who wouldn’t want to come over for that formal, jacket and tie affair! Ok, maybe not. However, here are some tips for keeping everyone you love safe and healthy during the spring cleaning bonanza.

Think about your pets before you spring clean

We don’t want you to forget these health and safety issues before you start cleaning. Because spring cleaning often means working with hazardous cleaning chemicals including ammonia and bleach, and it often means adding a fresh coat of paint, you’ll want to take special precautions to keep your beloved four legged companions safe.

Dogs

Dogs have especially sensitive snouts. Exposure to strong smells like bleach and ammonia can be irritating to them and can cause problems for days later. If at all possible, you should keep your dog outside and away from the work until the smell is essentially gone from the space. Then let your dog re-enter at his own speed, when he feels up to it. Some dogs might happily barge right back into a cleaned up space. Others might tentatively reenter a space and leave it multiple times, searching for remembered smells, and wondering why the place just is not the same as it was before.

Either way, it is important that you not force your dog back into a small space with a strong chemical odor. It may irritate or even harm your best friend.

Cats

Sure, it seems like your cat knows just how and when to get lost, and spring cleaning time seems like a time they’ll spend in the closet upstairs.You know your feline friend the best of all, but you might consider these concerns during spring cleaning.

Cleaning often means one or more people coming in and out of the house multiple times. If you’re laughing and talking or carrying things, your indoor cat might find this a great time to make a break for the outdoors.

Consider a cage or intentionally locking the cat in a comfortable room while the heavy work is going on. A little uncomfortable meowing is better than searching all evening for a lost companion. Or, worse yet, the guilt associated with stepping on a pet and potentially dropping a piece of heavy furniture or equipment.

Birds

You know the term “canary in a coalmine” but have you ever considered its origins? Miners used canaries to indicate when oxygen levels got too low for people. The canaries, ever more sensitive than us, died first.

Don’t let that happen to your birds during spring cleaning. If possible, remove them to a draftless spot in a trusted neighbor’s house, or in a room as far from the cleaning as possible. You don’t want to find out the hard way that the chemicals you were using were too harsh for your beloved and beautiful pets.

Caged and tanked pets

Again, our caged and tanked pets, being much smaller than us, are also more sensitive to changes in temperature and breathing in harsh chemicals.

Consider removing them to another location or, if that is not possible, cover the cage or tank and open the windows to make sure there is abundant air circulation.

With a little planning you can keep everyone safe during spring cleaning.

A Big Spring Cleanout to Transform Your Life

The change of seasons from winter to spring can bring a huge boost to your mood. Extra sunlight, a little more heat, and days spent outside instead of trapped on the couch … it can feel transformative.

It is this transformative nature of spring that also prompts us to do a big spring cleaning around the house. A big clean out will transform your life when it gets rids of more than a year’s worth of clutter and trash.

A major spring cleaning weekend is an intense and quick way to roll up your sleeves and tackle the months of clutter that have been holding you back this winter.

Plan it out

Before you get going on your project, you will want to have a plan. Ask yourself these important questions:

  • Do I want to tackle the whole house? Or just a single floor? Or will one room be enough?
  • Who will I have available to help me and what will we need – a truck? A dumpster?
  • What cleaning supplies will I need, and do I have them?
    • Bucket
    • Sponges and mop
    • Towels
    • Puddy knife
    • Cleaning liquids
    • Gloves
    • Trash bags
  • How much time will it take to get the results I want?

Budget

You will want to consider your budget for this work. What can your budget afford, and how much better will it make you feel?

$50 – a few friends, supplies you already have, and a couple pizzas and beer at the end of the day.

$150 – for the new homeowner who has a lot to get rid of and few supplies, but who still wants pizza and beer for the crew

$500 – for when the cleaning will merge into something a bit more, like painting or remodeling

>$500 – remodeling with a lot of removal, including dumpster rental, and enough sponges for multiple people to be working on the same thing at once

Inventory

Take inventory of the things to be sold and then sell them using Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, or freecycle depending on what they are and the likely taker.

Remember, everything you sell is something you don’t have to take to the curb or throw in your dumpsters.

Finally, if you can’t sell a decent and working item, you can donate it to St. Vincent DePaul or other local charity. Letting those items have a second life feels good too.

Start

The important thing is to start early and enthusiastically on the appointed day. Nothing gets you moving like already being on the move!

Plan out the process based on the space available. Are you cleaning everything out in one sink? Clean that room last – no sense cleaning it twice!

Want an early win? Start with the easiest room and mark it finished as quickly as possible.

Dumpster Rental Prices

When you are planning a significant building or renovation project, you want to carefully consider all of the costs involved.

These costs include, but are not limited to, the materials you will need, the tools you will rent or purchase, and the labor costs if you are hiring help. Of course,even if it is just you and a few friends who are demolishing an old garage, there are the expenses of pizza and beer, or White Claw, depending on your friends.

There is one last expense to consider as well.

You may have initially thought that your project could end up on the curb, in garbage bags or a handful of rolling trash cans borrowed from neighbors. But you’re wrong.

Most curbside waste companies have strict limits on what you can take to the curb and what they will haul away on trash day.

Rumpke limits garbage day haul

Rumpke, Southwest Ohio’s largest garbage removal agency, has strict rules for what it can and can’t take away.

This includes rules for how much they will haul away from your job site or home on garbage day. Their rules cap hauling at six large, 32 gallon bins each garbage day.

Sure, that’s a lot of garbage! Most average families fill one of these a week. Some especially active families who eat out a lot more than others might need a second of these containers after a particularly busy week.

But still, that is a lot of garbage. And your project might call for this amount of waste removal, raising a second question. Where would you get six of these containers?

This means that in order to reach the maximum, you would have to invest in a few more cans than you already have, then keep and store them forever afterwards. Most people will find it easier to rent a dumpster instead.

A ten yard rolloff dumpster, our most common rental type, holds ten times as much as you can put curbside with Rumpke. This means that one curbside roller saves you from having to plan how to fill up and set out 6 bins each week for ten weeks.

Ten weeks of maximum garbage hauling fits in our smallest bin.

So Big Daddy Dumpsters does not just save you money, Big Daddy Dumpsters saves you that most precious commodity: time.

Check out Big Daddy Dumpster prices versus curbside

Here are the equivalent costs and sizes for the intrepid and determined do-it-yourselfer, assuming you start with one 32 gallon bin provided by Rumpke.

10 cubic yards = 5 x 32 gallon bins = $125 dollars  / 10 weeks

15 cubic yards = 5 x 32 gallon bins = $125 / 15 weeks

20 cubic yards = 5 x 32 gallon bins = $125 / 20 weeks

Can you imagine spreading your project out over several months, when you could have the convenience of getting a dumpster delivered, filled up, and hauled away in a matter of days?

We can’t either. Call today!

Common Costs Added to A Dumpster Rental

When you buy any product or service it is not unusual to have additional costs added at the end.

However, most people don’t usually rent a dumpster. so those extra costs might surprise you if you aren’t prepared.

In the best-case scenario the company you rent from offers a single price that includes everything.

However that company takes on multiple costs in the process Falling Away what remains of your project.

Here are some common costs you might see added to your dumpster rental.

Common Dumpster Rental Costs

Taxes

Taxes are the most predictable cost with any purchase. and your locality these may include a sales tax and perhaps a service or Usage Tax. Even for companies that claim to provide one low price, the tax will be added as a separate final cost. They want to remind you that Uncle Sam, and not the company, is getting that money.

Distance Fees

Depending on the location of your project and the distance between your dumpster rental company and that project, you may be charged a distance fee. You should be informed of this upfront and it should not be a surprise that shows up on your bill later. The company must haul the dumpster to and from your location, and to the dump or landfill, so there are multiple considerations in assessing these fees.

Hazardous Materials Fees

A common pass-along fee that dumpster companies charge depends entirely on the type of materials you are placing in your dumpster. Every municipality has its own rules and costs for disposing of certain types of materials. For instance, some materials might have to go to a separate location that is further away, or that might require additional sorting. These items include concrete.

Insurance Coverage or Damage Protection

Another common expense that sometimes is billed separately is insurance coverage or damage protection. The insurance protects you in the case of something going wrong with the dumpster. This should generally be included in the price, but some companies will offer that to you as an additional cost. This may be required to be an additional cost, so the insurer knows that you have been informed and can collect the money directly.

The damage protection shields the dumpster company from liability in case there are deep scrapes or gouges when the dumpster is delivered or removed, or if other damage happens on the property that needs to be repaired.

Excess Weight

Even if everything goes as planned, a “one-price” company might surprise you with a final upcharge for excessive weight.  although your company May advertise their dumpsters on the basis of size, they typically are build at the junkyard based on weight. If you exceed the anticipated weight many companies will pass that charge on to you. You can ask as you rent if that could happen to you.

Typically companies take all of these things  into consideration when they are renting a dumpster to you. Being prepared and asking these questions upfront helps make sure there are no surprise additional costs to your project.
