How Do I Rent a Dumpster?

When planning for a large house project, such as a remodel, clean-out, or addition, one of the most crucial elements to your plan also tends to be the most intimidating. How exactly will you get rid of all the trash and debris from the project? In most cases, your project will require a dumpster rental. But this doesn’t need to be intimidating at all!

Renting a dumpster may seem like an ordeal that’s out of the average homeowner’s league, but we promise you it’s not. At Green Terra Disposal, we work with homeowners every day to help them through the dumpster rental process from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first dumpster or tenth. Our priority is making sure you get the right dumpster for your job and are completely comfortable with how it all works.

Dumpster Delivery in a Few Simple Steps

When you contact Green Terra Disposal to learn about renting a dumpster for your home project, you can trust us to be the experts you need. We understand that this is not an everyday task for you, so our goal is to answer your questions and guide you to the right size dumpster for your job.

Get started by calling our office at 215-703-7302. During our initial conversation, we’ll ask you the details of the project, the size of your home or of the area being worked on, and the layout of your property. Based on what we learn, we’ll recommend a dumpster size and placement location. Since we are an environmentally friendly dumpster service that unloads at a recycling center rather than a landfill, it’s important to go over the list of materials our dumpsters cannot take.

Our most common size dumpster for home projects is 15 yards. It measures 16’ long by 8’ wide by 4’ tall and can be loaded through a door or from the top. For reference, this size dumpster can hold 80-100 full trash bags, and it’s great for a bathroom remodel, yard cleanup, or house cleanout. For larger projects, we may recommend our next size up, which is 20 yards.

Once you reserve your dumpster, you’ll receive an email confirmation with the details, delivery date, pickup date if known, and any special notes from the conversation. If you have any questions or find any mistakes in the confirmation, just call us back! As a family-owned business, we’re focused on making sure everything goes smoothly. We’ll touch base the day before delivery with a 2-hour window for the drop-off so you can make sure to have the space cleared and ready.

You’ll receive a final text about 20 minutes before delivery, and you can rest assured that our driver already confirmed the route to your location and knows exactly where the dumpster is to be placed. Our driver will place boards to protect your property before rolling the dumpster carefully off the truck. If you’re on location, he’ll review how to use the door, safety precautions, and a reminder about what materials can’t go in the dumpster.

Dumpster Rental Makes Your Project Manageable

That’s it! All you have to do is fill the dumpster as you work through your project. When you’re ready to say goodbye, give our office a call 24-48 hours before you’re ready for pickup. We’ll schedule the dumpster’s removal and take care of the rest. As your project wraps up, we hope you’ll think of the dumpster rental as the easiest and least stressful step in the process.
