3 Steps to Prepare Your Property for a Dumpster Bin

To ensure that your property is sufficiently prepared for a dumpster bin delivery, you will need to complete the following steps:

1. Find the Right Surface and Make Space

Dumpster bins are extremely heavy, especially once they are filled with junk or construction debris. To ensure that your bin remains stable and does not move once it is placed, you will need to find a flat and durable surface. If you cannot determine which location would work best for a dumpster, contact a professional for assistance. Once a suitable location has been determined, move any vehicles, debris, or other items out of this space and ensure that there is a clear lane for the truck to access the area for delivery and retrieval.

2. Know the Rules

It is crucial to understand which items can be placed in your dumpster bin and which items cannot. For example, gasoline, oil, and chemicals are restricted substances that cannot be placed in a dumpster bin and will need to be safely disposed of at designated facilities. Failure to account for prohibited items can result in additional disposal costs, so it is worth speaking with your bin provider to obtain a list of allowed/prohibited items prior to the delivery date.

3. Sort Your Items

Once you know what is/is not allowed in your bin, it is a good idea to start sorting your junk. Organizing your junk or waste prior to delivery of your bin is especially crucial for short-term rentals, as this will ensure that you have enough time to properly dispose of every item. Proper organization of your junk will also allow for more efficient loading of your bin, cutting down on the time and effort required for the job.
