Major projects and renovations can improve the aesthetic quality of your home while also increasing its value. While this construction has plenty of benefits, you’re often left with an overwhelming mess at the end of it. But have no fear. Big Timber Tree Service offers top-of-the-line waste management and recycling services for your yard debris removal.

But before renting a dumpster for your yard debris removal needs, here are some things you’ll need to know.

The Basics

When using our dumpster rental service, a roll-away dumpster—a large metal container on wheels with an open top to put your trash—will be delivered to your home. You can instruct our driver to drop off the dumpster at a specific location on your property.

You can fill the container with your trash up to the maximum load limit. Once you’re finished, call us back and we’ll arrange for your dumpster to be picked up. Our service will then take the trash and dispose of it in the proper way.

What to Consider When Renting

Most municipalities do not require a permit to rent a dumpster, but it is wise to check with your town or city about their particular regulations before doing so.

Dumpsters can become extremely heavy once they are full and this can cause damage to your driveway, pavement or lawn. Usually, you are responsible for any damage the dumpster causes to your property, not the dumpster service. To help prevent damage, place a large piece of plywood under the wheels of the dumpster to help distribute the weight.

It is also important to be aware of the items you’re placing in the dumpster. You’re not allowed to dispose of any hazardous waste, chemical products, pesticides or radioactive materials. Flammable materials are also prohibited, such as aerosol cans, propane tanks or motor oil. Call 856-983-0351 to learn more about the specifics of what you can and cannot place in our dumpsters.

With our rental service, you pay for the delivery of the container, the weight of the trash and the haul. The cost can vary depending on location, as well as length and size of the container rented. Local costs, such as landfill costs and dumping taxes, by the municipality can also affect the price.
