Tips For Trash Removal After Major Construction Work

Posted on: 22 February 2023

If you are planning to have your home majorly remodeled or you are thinking about some drastic repair work that needs to be done, you will want to plan ahead enough so that you are considering trash removal. You don't want to finally be done with all of the construction work, only to find yourself with a huge mess that you do not know what to do with. To help put yourself on the right path for easy cleanup, you will want to spend a little time reviewing the following:

Consider Renting A Roll Off Dumpster

Roll-off dumpsters are fantastic for disposing of large amounts of construction debris. Whether you are going to end up with a lot of construction bags filled with small things or you will have large items like cabinets, lumber, old carpets, or doors, you can throw it all into the dumpster. Of course, you will want to make sure that you are double-checking with the rental company for things that are prohibited from going in their dumpsters, such as old propane tanks, roofing shingles, and paint cans that still have some paint in them.

Call Your Garbage Company For A Special Pickup

There are some standard residential garbage collection companies that can pick up some extra bags and items from your home, but they might not be able to do it during their regularly scheduled weekly pickup. This is because they have to stop at every house and there is only so much room in the back of the garbage truck before they have to head back to their headquarters to empty the truck. However, you could request a special pickup of trash from your home if you have an extra large amount of trash. You might have to pay an additional fee for this and that fee might be a flat rate for the additional run or you could be charged per bag. Talk with your garbage company representative to find out more.

Now that you have had the chance to review those things, you will have a much easier time addressing the issue of construction mess and garbage. You might not end up with enough debris to rent the largest roll-off dumpster, but you still may find it easier to rent a small one instead of trying to wedge everything into your standard home garbage bags and cans.
