4 Things to Know Before Calling an Omaha Dumpster Rental Company

Thinking of selling your Omaha area house, but have lots of “stuff” you are not using, won’t have room in your new home or apartment, and need to get rid of?

When decluttering, or preparing for a move or sale of a house, you can always have a garage sale, donate to a charity, or give items to friends or family members that would like them.  But what do you do with the stuff that is left and you don’t want?

Most likely, your next step is to dispose of them.  But what happens if you have more stuff than will fit in your regular dumpster that gets picked up weekly?  You most likely need to consider calling a dumpster rental company.

But before calling a dumpster rental company, I’d like to provide you with a few items to consider when renting a dumpster.

What Size Of A Dumpster Will I Need

You will need to take a look at home much “stuff” you want or need to dispose of, to determine the size of the dumpster you will need.  You don’t want to spend more money on a large dumpster that you can’t fill, or ren a dumpster that is too small and end of having to rent it twice.

Know What You Can and Cannot Throw Away

Don’t assume you can throw anything you want into a dumpster.  Dumpster rental companies usually have guidelines of what types of waste you can dispose of.  Hazardous or flammable materials are generally not allowed.  Before you rent a dumpster, you may want to check with them to ensure you can dispose of the items you want or need to.

Do You Have Space For A Dumpster

When renting a dumpster, make sure you have an easily accessible space to put it.  If you do not have an easily accessible space on your property, you may need to place the dumpster in the street.  If that is the case, you may need permission from the city, or need to get a permit to do this.

One other thing to consider, is to ask the dumpster rental company for assurance that placing a dumpster on your property will not damage a driveway or other area you will need to place it.

Get Your Stuff Ready to Dispose

Although you can sit back and wait for the dumpster to arrive, it may be better to have all the stuff ready to more easily dispose of when the dumpster does arrive. 

Boxes or other bulky items for instance, can be broken down ahead of time, so they will take up less room in the dumpster.

Having your stuff ready before the dumpster arrives will allow you to fill the container as soon as the dumpster is delivered.  This will reduce the amount of time the dumpster will need to be at your property, and minimize the rental fee.
