Reasons to Rent a Dumpster for a Construction Site

When a construction site comes to mind, demolition is with it. Construction is a messy business! Whether the site is constructing new office buildings or flipping an old home, trash accumulates quickly. Although several large garbage cans might get the job done, a dumpster is far more efficient. Fortunately, construction companies can rent dumpsters for one-time projects.


Disposal without a Dumpster Could be Costly

Many hesitate in renting a dumpster because they believe it may be too much of an expense. However, when you think about what is needed to haul away trash without a professional, you may be surprised at the savings. Consider how much garbage a construction site accumulates. 2018 saw a total of 600 million tons of construction and demolition waste in the United States.  

A construction company would have to pay employees to handle the garbage by hauling construction site debris without a dumpster. Plus, company trucks would take on extra wear and tear and require more gas. Many organizations would also have to pay a fee or acquire a permit to dispose of the debris. When it all adds up, renting a dumpster is often the more logical choice. 


Prevent Workplace Injuries

A construction site is home to various dangerous materials. When the standard-sized garbage bin cannot contain the construction site garbage, employees will start a pile. A pile of uncontained waste can result in lost nails, jagged pieces of metal, tripping hazards, and more. Renting a dumpster allows for these materials to be contained in a single space. Workers are less likely to get puncture wounds, cuts, and other injuries.

Additionally, using a dumpster means employees do not need to pick up heavy garbage cans to haul away in a truck. Heavy lifting may be part of the construction job but lifting more than necessary only adds to the risk. A dumpster is lifted by machinery and handled by professionals – prevent workplace injuries by relying on a dumpster. 


Better Efficiency and Productivity

How often would a garbage can need to be emptied or swapped for an empty one on a construction site? Compare it to how often a dumpster would need to be emptied, and you may see the productivity benefits of renting a dumpster for your site. A rented dumpster could also add to productivity by offering a place to drop large waste items. Broken and unusable fixtures are more easily disposed of in a dumpster than having to haul them alongside garbage cans.
