What Kind Of Dumpster Do You Need For Your Business?

Construction & Contractors Blog

Trash is a normal part of just about any business operation. However, picking a dumpster for the first time can feel a little intimidating because there can be so many different choices. Here is a look at a few questions you should know the answers to in order to determine what type and size dumpster will work best for your business. 

How much space do you have available for the unit?

Will you be placing your dumpster in your parking lot, behind your building, or on the curb? How much space do you have available to use for waste collection? It is not uncommon for some business owners in urban areas to have very little space to work with, which means they must go with a smaller unit and will require more retrievals for emptying. Upon request, your chosen dumpster service can give you the dimensions of the different dumpsters they have available to help you out. 

How much trash do you have on a weekly basis?

Trash needs can vary greatly according to the type of business you operate, so get a good idea of how much waste you have before you call a dumpster service for help. If you have a whole lot of trash from week to week, you may need a larger dumpster than most places. Dumpsters are usually measured in cubic yards, which means they are sized according to how many cubic yards of waste the container can hold. 

Will your dumpster need to be secure?

Is your dumpster going to be in an area where it could be prone to dumpster divers? Will you be tossing out items that should be kept private? Are pests a concern at your place of business? Use these questions to figure out if you need a dumpster that has an open top or if you need a dumpster that is more secure with a lid that can be locked up between visit. 

What type of trash do you usually have?

Just like space availability and the volume of trash should be used to determine which dumpster to rent, so should what you are going to be throwing away. Some dumpster services have different types of waste receptacles for different purposes. For example, you may need to get a certain type of dumpster if you will be throwing away a lot of food or if you will have medical waste.
