It's summertime and you want to jump into those home improvement projects you've been putting off. But what do you get rid of all the trash and debris that comes with them?
Whether you are a "Do-It-Yourself" kind of person, or you hire a contractor, any project that involves remodels, renovations, landscaping, or new additions will produce large amounts of trash and debris.
And it all has to be gotten rid of somehow and to somewhere.
In addition, depending on how long your projects take and how extensive they are, you may need to make multiple junk hauling runs in order to get rid of it all. And the problem for most people is how will they best get that done?
What To Do With the Junk?
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 Debris Removal 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, while dumpster rentals are often a good idea for residential construction or home remodeling projects, the traditional full-sized dumpsters come with some negative issues for a homeowner such as:
- The rental cost can be quite high with added fees.
- They can be inconvenient for a residential street and block driveways or curbs.
- They are often unsightly and may have to sit in a yard or driveway for days.
- Any labor for a dumpster rental is often charged separately.
Another concern with renting a commercial-sized dumpsters is that there is a real possibility of damaging your driveway, parking lot, or other property.
In addition, there's the space that is taken up with a giant steel box that can be eight feet tall, eight feet wide and over twenty feet long. (Not to mention having to keep your neighbors and others from using your rented dumpster to get rid of their own trash when you're not looking!)
The good news is that this is no longer your only dumpster option. There is a new and even revolutionary alternative to those massive, industrial-type dumpsters you usually think of when you consider a dumpster rental.
A Unique and Attractive Dumpster Solution
A Junk King MINI Dumpster, however, can minimize and even eliminate these problems. 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. Whether it's a series of home improvement projects, cleaning up your workspace or shop areas, or removing garbage and trash after a large event, the speed and convenience of a Junk King MINI Dumpster rental is sure to make your clean up chore almost painless.
Bigger is not always better and, when it comes to saving space, our MINI Dumpsters have 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.
It's NOT a big, ugly dumpster!
Our MINI dumpsters are clean and brightly painted. That would be Junk King red, by the way! 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 all of your driveway!
The Junk King MINI Dumpster is an easily accessible, driveway-friendly debris box that comes with the great customer service you expect from Junk King! And our MINI Dumpster rental is perfect for homeowners, renters, small businesses, and anyone else who wants a simple self-service dumpster solution.
Our MINI-dumpster, while smaller than those typical commercial-sized boxes, still holds up to 12 cubic yards of debris. And remember that with Junk King's MINI Dumpster rental services you are only paying for the space you use - not the weight of the material.
How much is 12 cubic yards?
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, the bed of a full size standard pickup, when loaded level full, can hold about 2.5 cubic yards of material. That means our MINI can hold almost five pickup truck loads of debris!

What Can You Put in a MINI Dumpster Rental?
Junk King lets you put just about anything in your rental MINI Dumpster. The only things we prohibit are hazardous materials such as chemicals, ammo, paint, and propane.
Otherwise, if it fits, put it in.
We take care of the sorting on our end, which means that you can toss in whatever junk you have and all of it will get recycled or reused if possible. That's part of our long-standing commitment to being green and eco-friendly.
While our roomy, 12 cubic yard dumpster can manage many large pieces of furniture and piles of debris, you’ll want to avoid having anything sticking up over the top of the dumpster. One easy way to do this, for example, is to partially disassemble any large pieces of furniture so that they fit snugly without protruding.
Generally speaking, by taking the time to break large things down you can fit more in the dumpster and, as a happy result, dispose of more junk in one dumpster rental.
