Before the garage makeover or epoxy floor coatings.As a homeowner, there are many factors to consider when it comes to renovating your garage. One important factor that you may not be thinking of is how you will dispose the waste produced during the cleanup and renovation process. Here are a few tips that will help you secure a proper dumpster before you begin your renovation project.

Quantify Your Needs 

Before you start looking for a dumpster to rent, you need to determine your needs based on the scale of the renovation project. The more waste that will be produced during renovation, the larger the dumpster you will need.

The first thing you should consider is how many items are currently in your garage. Before you renovate your garage, you will need to clean out the garage. Chances are you plan to dispose of most of these items rather than placing them in storage. Therefore, you should consider how many items you need to throw out when determining the size of the dumpster you want to rent.

The size of the average dumpster offered by Budget Dumpster ranges from 10 to 40 yard dumpsters. While it's generally better to overestimate rather than underestimate, you also don't want to spend too much money unnecessarily.

Duration of Renting Period

The next thing you need to consider is how long you should rent the dumpster. Most people opt to rent a dumpster for about one to two weeks. If you're having a difficult time determining exactly how long the rental period you should be, you don't have to worry too much because most places have flexible rental periods. Budget Dumpster gives customers the option to rent the dumpster for additional days at a rate of $10 per day. Due to the flexible renting period, you don't have to worry about underestimating when it comes to the duration of the renting period. You will be able to add an additional day or two to the renting period to account for any possible setbacks during the renovation process.

What Can Be Disposed?

Before you rent a dumpster from a company, like Budget Dumpster, you should find out exactly what can be disposed in these dumpsters. The dumpster company should have a list of prohibited items so that our customers know upfront before renting out a dumpster. Of course, the list of prohibited items varies slightly from market to market. In general, it is prohibited for chemicals, tires, and electronics to be disposed of in the dumpster. Budget Dumpster disallows all items that can prove to be incredibly harmful to our customers, our employees, or the environment.

Not only will you need to clean out your garage, but also plenty of waste will likely be produced during the actual renovation process. Therefore, you should consider renting a dumpster from Budget Dumpster.
