Making Space In Your Garbage Can

After we started cleaning out our basement, I was blown away with the amount of trash that we came across. There were loads and loads of extra items that we didn't need anymore, and it was really frustrating. I started focusing on making more space in our trashcan, and I was really impressed with how much extra room a few smart moves made. We started nesting garbage items inside of paint buckets, and breaking down boxes carefully. This blog is dedicated to helping homeowners to make better use of the space they have inside of their trashcans. You never know, you might be able to enjoy more free space inside of your home.

Options For Hauling Remodeling Waste


If you're working on a residential remodeling project, one of the biggest logistical questions can be what to do with the waste. You have many options depending on the amount of waste and your budget. 

Haul the Waste Yourself

If you have some spare time and have access to a pickup truck, then you have the option of hauling the waste to a dumping facility yourself. This can help you save money since you'll only pay based on the weight that you dump. This can be a time-consuming process, however. With a small pickup truck, you'll likely need to make at least weekly trips to get rid of waste. And you'll need to do the work of sorting the waste yourself based on the material types. Some haul-it-yourself companies may not accept all types of residential construction waste, either, so make sure that you do your research so you don't get stuck with materials that you can't get rid of. 

Use a Hauling Company

A hauling company is a compromise between complete order and chaos. You can simply pile your construction waste on a part of your property and schedule a hauling company to come get it when the pile becomes too unwieldy. A hauling company is a great option when you can't afford to rent a truck or hire a rolloff dumpster company. But it can create a bit of a mess on your property, and if your team isn't careful to stack the waste appropriately, it can present a hazard in case your pile falls. It's also not as convenient as rolloff dumpster services, because you'll need to monitor your available space and repeatedly schedule for pickups. 

Hire a Rolloff Dumpster

If you can afford it, the rolloff dumpster for rent is definitely the way to go. You'll be able to store the waste material cleanly on your property, and you won't have to worry much about logistics because the company will come to empty the bin on a regular basis. If your dumpster fills up early, you can simply call the company to schedule an additional pickup. There are a few permitting issues with rolloff dumpsters since they can take up a lot of space, but as long as you plan ahead and work with your rolloff dumpster service, you can get all of the logistical details arranged ahead of your project so that you can focus on more pressing issues during the renovation.
