Safety Recommendations for Renting a Dumpster

Follow these recommendations to remain safe while using a rental dumpster.

1. Engage the rear wheel locks when you park the dumpster on an incline. Even a little incline could induce it to roll.

2. Don't overfill the dumpster. Items should not stick out of the top opening.

3. Use caution when opening the dumpster door, and be sure you lock it when you're done.

4. Wear safety gloves to protect your hands while loading debris.

5. A back support brace can help prevent injuries while carrying heavy items to the dumpster.

6. Only let adults close to the dumpster.

7. Never put chemicals in the dumpster. As soon as they enter the landfill, they can leak out and contaminate your local ground water.

8. Make sure you have lots of light when transferring debris to the dumpster. If you plan to work at dusk, get a light that provides enough illumination.

Terms to know when renting a dumpster in Alexandria

When you rent a dumpster in Alexandria, you're dealing with professionals who use terms associated with the construction industry and dumpsters each day. Since you probably don't use these terms every day, here's a bit of the lingo to get you acclimated. This will really help you deal with business employees who may get impatient should you not understand what they are explaining about their products.

"Container" and "roll off" are both acceptable terms for the big metal box you need to rent. Professionals do not use the term "dumpster" as much as the other terms. Containers are often let in cubic yard sizes, but you do not have to contain the "cubic" part. Only say "yard" or "yarder." If, for example, you need to rent a 30-yard dumpster, you can say, "I am interested in a 30-yard roll off" or "I Had like to rent a 30-yarder." Use these terms, and you're going to sound like a professional when you call.


Junk removal vs Dumpster Rental in Alexandria - Which is right for you?

For those who have a job you are about to undertake at home, you may be wondering if it is better to hire someone to come haul off all your garbage and crap for you, or if you should just rent a dumpster in Alexandria and load it yourself.

Renting a container is a better option if you'd like the flexibility to load it on your own time and you also do not mind doing it yourself to save on work. Dumpsters also work well in the event you've at least seven cubic yards or more of debris. Roll offs generally start at 10 cubic yards, thus should you just have 3-4 yards of waste, you are paying for a lot more dumpster than you need.

Garbage or junk removal makes more sense in case you'd like somebody else to load your old stuff. In addition, it works well should you'd like it to be taken away fast so it is outside of your own hair or in the event you simply have a few large things; this is likely cheaper than renting a whole dumpster.
