The advantages of renting a dumpster include time savings, the ability to keep a work area tidy and cost savings. Most garbage haulers offer dumpsters for rent on a short- or long-term basis. Dumpsters are generally available in a variety of sizes.
Saving time is one of the main reasons most businesses and building contractors and subcontractors rent dumpsters. Rather than making multiple trips to the landfill or transfer station or dealing with overflowing trash cans, these customers are able to dispose of garbage without much thought, knowing there is plenty of room in their dumpster.
Dumpsters also promote cleaner work areas by providing a convenient and obvious place to throw away waste, thereby cutting down on garbage being stacked or heaped in inconvenient areas. Many companies that rent dumpsters also offer recycling bins at a discount, which reduces clutter in the work place even more.
Compared to the cost of having multiple cans of garbage picked up each week, dumpsters are usually much more economical. While the volume of trash might be the same in one dumpster as in several cans, the former takes far less of a garbage hauler's time to empty, which ultimately saves the company time. This saving is passed on to the customer.
