If you've let your property get out of control because you've been too busy to keep up with things, it may be time to finally tackle house and yard cleaning to get your property back in order. Spending a week or a few weekends cleaning your property would make a big difference in the curb appeal of your home and would help you feel better about having a tidy living space.
You may generate a lot of debris, and renting a roll-off dumpster is a good way to deal with it. Here are some ways to use a roll-off dumpster rental to clean up your property.
1. Get Rid Of Yard Debris
If your trees haven't been trimmed in a long time, you could have a lot of branches that need to be hauled away. You should cut them down as much as possible so you can get more in the dumpster.
Newly cut branches are fluffy and take up a lot of room, but they lose moisture and volume fast. You might want to cut the branches and stack them in the backyard a few days before the dumpster arrives so they'll be wilted and won't take up as much room.
You'll need to make sure everything you put in the dumpster is below the top so branches don't become a hazard when the truck is on the road.
2. Eliminate Household Clutter
One of the best uses for a roll-off dumpster rental is to get rid of clutter in your house. If you've accumulated a lot of clutter and it makes your house seem crowded, it's probably time to start throwing things out.
You might want to donate valuable things, but if you have old appliances that don't work, used clothes that aren't worth donating, worn-out furniture, and other assorted junk, you can toss it in a dumpster and make more room in your house.
3. Haul Off Construction Debris
A roll-off dumpster rental is ideal for construction debris. If you're doing work on your house, you might throw out old cabinets, drywall, flooring, and other construction materials. You could even tear down an old shed and throw the debris in a dumpster to be hauled away.
Part of the problem with undertaking projects around your home that generate a large amount of debris is figuring out how to get rid of the debris if you don't have a truck to haul it to the dump yourself. Plus, if the city landfill is far away, you may not want to make multiple trips. Instead, rent a dumpster so getting rid of junk and waste is easy and convenient.
