How A Dumpster Rental Can Make Your Cleanup Easier

Como Disposal - Thursday, January 17, 2019

If your big, home cleanup project will take more than a few garbage bags to remove your junk, a dumpster rental is your go-to solution for fast and efficient waste removal. Trash disposal is not as easy as often thought especially with the regulations imposed on waste management. Here are some reason why renting a dumpster would make your cleanup easier. 

1. Save Time

When you rent a dumpster, you have the ability to toss your junk directly into the garbage on-site while you are cleaning. No loading the car, no trips to the dump. You never realize how much garbage you have until you have to load it in the car! The dumpster company will drop off and pick up the dumpster allowing you to get your cleaning done quicker.

2. A Safer Work Environment

A dumpster is the perfect option for keeping your work environment clean and your junk out of sight. Waste will immediately be deposited into the bin instead of lying around; your work space will be safer with less chance of falling over piles of garbage.

3. Save Money

In many cases, it is cheaper to rent a dumpster to dispose of your trash. Take into consideration the cost to dump your debris at the local landfill, cost of gas to make numerous runs, not to mention the possible damage that could occur to your car. Be sure to order the right size dumpster; at Como Disposal we provide the best size to fit your needs for the same price, but many don’t do that, and paying more for a dumpster that is only half full makes no sense. Call Como Disposal so we can recommend that best size dumpster for your job so you have one that’s big enough, but isn’t taking up more space than necessary.

4. Environmental Disposal

Instead of you having to figure out where to dispose what, the dumpster rental company will take care of all disposal and save you from the troubles of getting rid of the junk yourself. When possible, the dumpster rental company can even get some of the things recycled, minimizing the waste going into landfills. Keep in mind that hazardous waste should not be disposed of in a dumpster.

Let the professionals at Como Disposal take care of all your disposal needs. If you think a dumpster rental would help make your home cleanup easier, call us today at 888-749-1335. We guarantee that we'll provide you with excellent pricing, on-time delivery & pick-up and quality customer service.
