More Tips on Dumpster Rental in McKinney, TX

How to minimize extra costs on dumpsters

As with any purchase, informed shoppers get the best deal. That’s certainly the case when it comes to renting a dumpster. Here are a few tips that help you become a more informed customer.

  1. It's smart to contact at least two companies for quotes. This ensures you’re getting a fair price.  Typically, prices are fairly close between dumpster services in the same area, but it's worthwhile to double check the market to make sure you're not overpaying.
  2. Avoid overweight fees by not mixing in heavy debris (e.g., dirt, concrete, brick, etc.) into a general debris dumpster. For example, say you're loading a dumpster with household junk and you rented it with 2 tons of weight included.  Mixing concrete into that dumpster may push the weight of the dumpster well over your limit, meaning you'll get hit with extra charges for the weight when it's weighed at the landfill. 
  3. Understand the standard rental period and avoid late fees by calling and having the dumpster service pick up the container on or before the agreed upon date.
  4. When on the fence about which bin size to choose, go with the larger one. The difference in price is minimal compared to the potential of having to rent an additional dumpster.

Ask about recycling options, particularly for "clean loads" of concrete, shingles, and some construction debris. In some areas, it's cheaper for the dumpster company to recycle a load rather than dump it at the landfill. They may pass these savings on to you.

Estimating Dumpster Size

It’s often difficult to estimate the amount of trash or debris you’ll have for a clean up project.   If your not sure what size of a dumpster you need, the best source of information is often the company delivering your container. They have experience in dealing with a wide variety and quantities of waste and debris. Helpful local companies will make recommendations on the right container size based on an accurate description of your debris and clean up job, but it's not an exact science.  Without actually seeing your debris, any advice you receive is just an educated guess.

To estimate the amount of debris yourself, you can measure it and convert it to cubic yards. One cubic yard is equal to a 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. pile of debris. That’s about the volume of a standard kitchen stove.

Estimating the weight of a load is often difficult for first time renters, and so it’s best to consult your dumpster provider to determine if your load is likely under the weight allowance for a particular container size.
