Renting a dumpster is not as hard as it may seem, do not worry as we made this website to help you navigate through the dumpster rental process.
Yes, first-timers are usually surprised by some of the technical intricacies of arranging the container rental process. As much as every dumpster rental company in Columbus wants everything to be as simple as possible for its customers, some states counties take trash more or less seriously and various regulations may apply.
The stringency is brought about by the fact that municipalities have realized that there will not be enough space to accommodate all the junk produced by the businesses and residents of Oklahoma. If they kept things too lenient, then the city could potentially face a serious problem in the long-term.
To help clear the doubts in your mind, this page covers most of the common business and residential inquiries regarding rolloff dumpster rentals.
How does renting a dumpster container work?
Renting a dumpster unit can sometimes be confusing. But with the right company, your application should move smoothly. You just need to contact the company and request for their service. They will then introduce their services, with the size and the type of dumpster you might need depending how much waste materials there is to take care of at your location.
Afterwards, they will offer the appropriate quotation. Once everything is settled, your dumpster will be delivered to your address on the agreed time and date. You can expect a slight duration before the delivery as it can be difficult to maneuver a dumpster on the road.
When will the roll-off dumpster get picked up?
This depends on the agreement between you and the company. Since waste management, length of service, and the waste collection schedule are going to be discussed beforehand, the dumpster will be picked up (with or without trash inside) at the agreed address, on the agreed date and time.
How big are the dumpster containers?
Dumpsters are measured in cubic yards. Typically, waste management companies like us that offer these rentals have 14 different dumpster sizes. However, keep in mind that other companies may not have every size out there as some of them might be out of stock.
You may discuss the dumpster size with an expert at our company (call 614-412-4334 now). This way you can give a correct estimate of the trash your house or your business needs to get hauled away, and then our company can suggest an appropriate size.
What goes in the dumpster bin?
Our company accepts all types of waste and junk materials that are classified as household, construction and concrete debris. Dirt or soil, stump and brushes are also allowed. However, keep in mind that hazardous waste such as harmful chemicals, battery liquids, asbestos, solvents and any harmful wastes are forbidden, or require a special package.
In the event that you need to get rid of these types of wastes, consult your local county government office and they will be able to provide you a list of accredited companies who can safely handle and dispose of hazardous chemicals.
What is your policy on recycling and being environmentally friendly?
Many dumpster rentals and waste management companies offer green services, and we do too. Typically, the contents of a dumpster will immediately get dumped at the landfill after your garbage has been picked up.
However, our company, just like the majority of the rental dumpsters today offer bin rentals for items that are recyclable. On rare occasions, some companies even offer to sort the contents of the bins for you for recycling. All you have to do is ask if they offer this service.
What is the dumpster size I need?
This will depend on the size of the project or the expected amount of trash output you are going to have. It has always been a rule in our company to brief our customers on the allowable load of the container unit. If you are uncertain about the amount of litter you will throw out, it is recommended that you get a bigger dumpster.
But if you are remodelling or renovating your business or your home, smaller dumpsters are preferred. Construction debris like cement, rocks and other heavier materials can exceed the weight restrictions as they tend to be heavier than normal trash. When in doubt, pick up the phone and contact us. The experts in our office can help you decide about this.
Before you sign your agreement, know that each city has different dumpster specifications for both private and public land. Do not forget to contact your local county and ask the requirements you need to follow. On some occasions, the rental company can assist you to garner the information you need. However, processing it would be on your hands.
