Tips for Michigan Homeowners and Investors: Dumpsters and Roll-Off Rentals are not just for Commercial Projects

Tips for Homeowners: Dumpsters and Roll-Off Rentals are not just for Commercial Projects
KEY Green energy might be available to you right now, so make a phone call and see if you can find it. Most electric companies are now offering green energy sources that can meet consumer's needs.

Dumpster rentals are essential for homeowners who are doing large home renovation, landscaping or garage clean-out projects. The rubbish will have to go somewhere. Piling it up in the back yard or hiring a hauling service at premium prices isn't the best solution.

A good trash company will accommodate the homeowner as well. They will explain the options to the average homeowner who may not be familiar with their terminology. Roll-off containers are rented in standard cubic yard sizes. The bigger the job, the larger dumpster you will want to rent.

KEY If you are building a new house from the ground up, build with green energy in mind. Make sure that your property has enough room for a wind turbine, or add on a roof that is sloped correctly for solar panels.

Be sure to choose the right size container for the job; you will typically want a container that is one size larger than you think you will need. Carpet, scrap wood, drywall, yard waste and rubbish that has accumulated over the years will take up a lot of space. Concrete, rock and dirt will be heavy and should only fill the container about quarter or half full. Your rental company will be able to advise you on this issue.

Different volume sizes come in different dimensions. Height is an important thing to consider when lifting heavy materials over the side; you might ask if you can get a lower container if you're disposing of heavy items. Following is a description of typical dumpsters and roll-off containers:

KEY Choosing to switch to green energies is a decision you should make after considering how much money you will really save. You should have a good idea of how much energy you are currently using and what it is costing you.

10 Cubic Yard Container: 12 feet long, 8 feet wide and 4 feet high is a 10 yarder. It would be good for a small job, like tearing out a small bathroom.

20 Cubic Yard Container: 12 feet long, 8 feet wide, 41/2 feet high. This is usually the minimum size container for a large job; it will accommodate the rubbish from a small bathroom without overfilling or packing the dumpster.

KEY A great way to garden green and efficiently use green energy is to xeriscape. This means plant native plants in your yard so that there is less maintenance and energy used on it.

30 Cubic Yard Container: This is an ideal size; it fits in front of most houses and accommodates carpet rolls, drywall debris and scrap wood without too much trouble. It's also good for disposing of concrete or rock.

40 Cubic Yard Container: This is the size for very large demolition and renovation jobs. It's 12 feet long, 8 feet wide and eight feet high and will serve most needs.

KEY When you invest in green energy, you are not only helping to reduce any monthly electric bills you would normally have. You are also helping the environment by consuming less energy from outside sources allowing less green house gases to be emitted into the atmosphere which let's the world become a healthier place to live in.

Decide on the size container that is right for your job, then plan where it will be placed for filling. Remember, you cannot move it once you've started filling it. Plan where you will be parking, whether or not you need vehicle access to and from the garage and consider how far you want to walk the rubbish before throwing it into the dumpster. Be sure the way is clear for the container to be delivered. If you will be placing the dumpster on the street, be sure to check with the city or township for codes and light requirements. The dumpster service company should be able to supply adequate lighting; a local company will most likely be familiar with the rules and regulations.

Don't forget to be sure the way is clear when it come time for the dumpster or roll-off container to be picked up. If the driver cannot get to it, he may charge extra for his time and trouble making another trip to pick it up. You may be delayed in having it hauled away and end up paying for an additional day.
