Many home projects are started without planning for proper debris disposal.  Usually, bulk waste is carted out to the curb in the hopes that one day the municipality will remove these items and dispose of them at the local landfill or disposal facility.  While each municipality is different, many have specific regulations regarding the disposal of large household or construction debris. Once you understand the regulations, it may be a while before the items are actually picked up.  They will reside on the curb in front of your home, attracting vermin and posing a safety threat to local children until the municipal clean up team can arrange to pick it all up. 

Another option is to collect the bulk waste and cart it off in your car to your local disposal facility, one load at a time.  Some municipalities may accept this waste and others may not.  Some may charge a fee for disposal.  Meanwhile, you never realize how much waste you have until you try to fit it all in your car.

For this reason, many people choose to rent a Russell Reid dumpster for their home renovation or clean-up projects.  The dumpster can be placed in a convenient location and will hold tons of debris, keeping it safe from local children or curious critters.  When your project is complete, Russell Reid will pick up the container immediately and dispose of the contents for you at an approved disposal facility. 

Some popular uses for Russell Reid dumpsters include:

DIY or Home Renovation Projects: Roll Off dumpsters are a safe and convenient way to collect debris from any home renovation or do-it-yourself project. Collect lumber or wood scraps, windows, drywall, flooring, old doors, fixtures, pipes, siding or any other type of construction or demolition debris. The items can be placed safely inside a dumpster without having to worry about anyone or anything getting injured by old rusty nails, sharp metal edges or splintered wood.

Landscaping or Yard Waste: Spring or fall yard clean-up activities can generate a large amount of waste. For convenient disposal, use a dumpster to dispose of debris from pruning, trimming, mowing, shrub removal, stone and brick projects, sod, tree stumps, etc. Debris is more effectively contained inside the dumpster and removed before the wind can carry it back to your yard.

Attic, Garage or Whole House Clean Out: A dumpster can help you complete your household clean up job quicker by placing it closer to the area to be cleaned. It also eliminates the eyesore and safety hazard created when piling the bulky items & trash up at the curb. These dumpsters can be filled with old furniture, clothing, broken toys, old mattresses, car and bike parts, carpeting, attic and garage debris or any other type of general household trash.

Some important factors to consider when renting a dumpster for household trash:

  • Hazardous items or items containing hazardous materials should not be disposed of in a dumpster.  These include hazardous chemicals, used motor oil, paints & solvents, tires, fluorescent lights, lead acid or rechargeable batteries, propane tanks, etc.  Contact us if you are unsure of any item.
  • As of 2011, televisions, computers, laptops and monitors are banned from the garbage in accordance with New Jersey’s Electronic Waste Management Act (Act).
  • If you want the dumpster placed on your driveway, you may want to lay down several pieces of plywood to protect the area from any damage.
