Dumpster Rental For Your Summer Projects

Posted by Junk King on Jun 13, 2017 9:43:35 AM


Summer is traditionally a great time for taking on those indoor or outdoor projects around the house. But what do you do with all the trash and debris that you'll end up with?

One of the inevitable result of most projects - remodels, landscaping, or new add-ons - is trash and debris. And, depending on how long the project takes, or how extensive it is, there may the need for multiple junk hauling runs. But the real question is how are you going to get it done.

You usually have three options when it comes to debris removal and junk hauling.

  • You can haul it out yourself and take it to the local dump or landfill.
  • You can have someone you know with a truck do it for you.
  • Or you can find a reliable firm to come and haul it off for you.

The challenge is when you have a project that is generating trash over and over again through the course of work. You don't really want to have someone making multiple trips to the dump (providing you still have a dump near you!) And it's quite likely you don't want to be piling trash and debris in your front yard or driveway, waiting to take it all off at once.

A Dumpster Rental is a Great Option

Having a dumpster onsite can solve those problems, but a regular commercial dumpster can be a bit large to work with for most homeowners with residential projects. In addition, these can be costly to rent, there are limits to where they can be placed. In addition, they are usually unsightly.

While dumpster rentals are often a good idea for residential construction or home remodeling projects, the traditional full-sized dumpsters offer a few other issues for a homeowner such as:

  • The cost can be prohibitive.
  • The can be inconvenient on a residential street and block driveways or curbs.
  • Commercial dumpsters are often unsightly and can be sitting in a yard or driveway for days.
  • Any labor that goes into a dumpster rental is often charged separately.

Other concerns with commercial-sized dumpsters there is the possibility of damaging your driveway or other property. In addition, keeping your neighbors and others from using your rented dumpster can be a problem, as well!

The good news is that this is no longer your only dumpster option. Now there is a revolutionary alternative to the massive industrial-type dumpsters you might usually think of when you consider a dumpster rental option.

A Different Kind of Dumpster

With a MINI Dumpster, however, these issues are minimized or even eliminated. The smaller size and quick delivery and pick-up service makes this dumpster the right choice for those larger junk hauling needs.

Our unique MINI dumpster system is a great solution for residential and small commercial dumpster rental needs. Bigger is not always better and when it comes to saving space our MINI dumpsters are about the same footprint size of a small truck. This is especially important for homeowners, property managers, and residential contractors since these dumpsters can be used in your driveway.

No more ugly boxes! Our MINI dumpsters are clean and brightly painted.  You can rest assured that you and your neighbors will not be forced to look at the rusting hulk of a beat-up commercial container taking up 75 percent of your driveway!

Our MINI-dumpster, while smaller than the typical commercial sized boxes, still holds up to 12 cubic yards of debris.

How much is that? 

One cubic yard can be visualized as a cube that  3-foot by 3-foot  around and is also 3-feet tall. In fact, it's about the size of a large oven. Now picture stacking up 12 of them.  Imagine all that in the interior of a Junk King MINI dumpster. That's a lot of ovens!

By comparison, a typical large moving box measures The bed of a full size standard pickup, when loaded level full, will hold 2.5 cubic yards of material. That means our MINI can hold almost five pickup truck loads of debris. 

What kind of projects can use a MINI dumpster for clean up? Here's an illustrated list to inspire you:


What Can Go in a Dumpster Rental?

Junk King lets you deposit just about anything in your dumpster rental. We only prohibit hazardous materials such as ammo, paint, and propane.

If it fits, drop it in. We handle the sorting on our end. That way you can throw in whatever junk

you have, and still know that it will get recycled or reused if possible.

Our 12 cubic yard dumpster fits many large pieces of furniture and tons of debris, but you’ll want to try to avoid overflow so nothing sticks over the top of the dumpster. For example, you might partially disassemble a large piece of furniture so that it fits snugly without protruding. In general, breaking things down will help you fit more, so you can dispose of more junk in one dumpster rental.
