When it comes to cleaning up, there's one thing you can never have enough of, and that's trash space. No matter how much you plan, there never seem to be enough trash cans to go around, especially when you rely on your curbside residential trash cans. Unfortunately, there are some cleanup projects that simply continue without sufficient trash space. For those projects, it's crucial that you rent dumpsters. If you're not sure that your next project will require a dumpster—or two—take a look at the list below. If you're going to be involved in any of those activities, it's time to rent a dumpster.
End-of-Summer Block Parties
Block parties are a great way to get out, meet the neighbors, and enjoy the warm weather. They're also a great way to end up with dirty streets, especially if you haven't planned for the cleanup. If you're planning an end-of-summer block party, you're going to need at least one dumpster. You might even want to rent two; one for each end of the block. That way, party-goers can toss their trash in the dumpster and leave the residential trash cans alone. Not only that, but once the party is over, you can use the dumpsters to clean up the big messes.
Empty Nester Clean-Outs
Summer is the time of year when adults kids get ready to leave for college, or to get married and leave home. If you've got adult kids who will be leaving the nest this summer, and you'll be left an empty nester, it's time to rent a dumpster. You're going to have a lot of cleaning to do once your kids move out of the house, especially if you plan on turning their empty bedroom into a den or home office. A dumpster will allow you to clean things out and make room for your new plans.
If your fall season is going to involve a remodeling project, the end of summer is the best time to start preparing for the mess. Rent a dumpster and get a head start on the preparation. This is important if you'll be emptying out space for the remodeling project. Once you're ready to start the project, you'll need a dumpster on site to provide space for all the construction debris you'll be tossing out.
If you own rental property, and your tenants will be moving out this summer, you'll need room for the cleanup. This is particularly true if your tenants were inconsiderate and left you with a big mess to clean up. A dumpster will ensure that you have a safe and sanitary way to clear out the trash and make things presentable for your next tenants.
