Top Tips to Save Money on Your Dumpster Rental

Whether you are a building contractor, a real estate property manager, or just a private citizen with property, affordability is an important concern when considering waste removal and dumpster rentals. We have refined our systems and processes over many years to be more efficient and save our customers time and money. However, there are still things you can do as a customer to maximize your cost savings when renting a roll off dumpster. From having a better understanding of maximizing space, shortening your rental period, and avoiding unexpected costs from permits, there are easy ways to save more on an affordable dumpster rental in Fort Worth.

Efficient Space Management

First, it’s important to understand the space that you will be working with. When you are trying to determine which dumpster is the best size, remember that the sizes are measured as cubic yards. For example, a 20-yard dumpster means that it is 20 cubic yards in size (not 20 yards long!). When you compare the dumpster sizes to the different types of materials and waste that you’ll be putting into the dumpster, you start to get a better understanding of managing the space you are working with.

Here’s a great example: yard waste. Maybe you did some tree work or there was a storm that caused a lot of debris to litter around your yard. If you have tree branches that you need to be hauled off along with other waste, it is probably best to cut these branches into smaller pieces. By cutting them into shorter pieces, they can actually take up much less space by volume and by not blocking space to place other items. The same concept can be applied to things as simply as boxes. Flattening cardboard boxes or disassembling items can help you to save space, which means you might be able to rent a smaller dumpster size.

Dumpster Rental Period

The length of time that you have your dumpster rental is the second most important factor when determining the cost of your rental. Simply put, the longer that your dumpster rental will be sitting at your property, the more it will cost. By having a project plan in mind prior to renting can really help with lowering your costs. If you can shorten the amount of time that you will need your dumpster rental, then you’ll be able to save even more money. Win-win!

Know Your Local Regulations

Sometimes there may be unexpected costs that come up with dumpster rentals. These can be for a variety of reasons, but there are two reasons that are most common: materials that are disposed of and government regulations. We bring up the type of waste that is being disposed of because there are certain materials that aren’t even allowed to be taken to the dump. Many of these materials cause contamination or can be dangerous. Heavier materials like bricks, roofing materials, stone, and concrete may incur special pricing due to the weight. While these materials may not take up a lot of space, they are significantly heavier.

In many places, including the city of Fort Worth, permits are required if you are going to be parking a dumpster on a sidewalk, in the street, or on public property. Obtaining these permits typically come at a cost. However, there are some easy ways to avoid having to pay these costs. For example, if you normally park your car in your driveway, you may consider parking your car in the street for the few days that you have your dumpster rental.
