Things to be aware of with your Memphis dumpster rental:
- Prohibited Items – Make sure you do not put anything prohibited inside the dumpster, this will result in fines and extra charges per item not allowed. These are things like liquid chemicals, TV’s, tires, appliances, etc.
- Dumpster Parking – It is important you calculate dumpster space before ordering a dumpster. Make sure the driveway or designated parking area is big enough to fit a dumpster. Check for low hanging power/telephone wires. If parking on a yard or dirt area, inspect the area for water lines, irrigation lines, and septic tanks that are not visible to the truck driver and point them out upon delivery. If not parking on concrete, gravel, or asphalt make sure the grounds a firm enough for a dumpster.
- Ground Protection – If you are concerned with damages to your property from the dumpster it is highly recommended to cover the dumpster ground parking area with pieces of wood. Although it is rare for damage to occur things do happen and parking on wood does help avoid damage. There are multiple factors that contribute to damages to the ground like cracking, scratching, or gouging the parking surface. Things like thickness of the concrete/asphalt and pre-existing cracks.
- Dumpster Fees – Temporary dumpsters mean you are given an allotted time that you can keep the dumpster. If you are wanting to make sure you stick to a low budget and avoid extra time charges, then make sure you plan accordingly and fill your dumpster within that time frame. How heavy you load the dumpster will also be a huge determining factor on your final bill. Trash is taken to waste facilities where they weigh your waste debris and you are billed based on how heavy your load is. Generally, house clean ups in Memphis are significantly lighter than a construction remodel project because the materials being thrown away do not weigh as much.
