Limit The Weight Of Your Dumpster: Tips To Help You Avoid Dumpster Overage Fees

Many dumpster rentals limit the weight of the items that you can place in one of their dumpsters. If you go over this weight limit, you may be charged a dumpster overage fee. Dumpster overage fees can add up quickly. As such, you may be looking for ways to limit the weight of your dumpster. Here are a few of the tips that can best help you to avoid extra dumpster rental fees. 

Rent the Right Size Dumpster for Your Needs

One of the best ways to avoid dumpster overage fees is to rent the right size dumpster at the beginning of your project. If your dumpster is too small, you will be trying to cram too much into the dumpster, and this is a sure-fire way to make it too heavy. Learn about the different sizes of dumpsters available to help you select the right one for you. 

Rent a Concrete Dumpster Rental As Needed

If you are going to be disposing of heavy items, such as gravel, concrete, and asphalt, look for a dumpster rental specifically designed for these items, typically called a concrete rental. These items are extremely heavy and can quickly increase the weight of a regular rental. Many concrete dumpsters do not have weight limits but cost more than regular dumpster rentals. This allows you to dispose of these heavy items. 

Cover your Dumpster When It Is Raining

Rain can saturate items in a dumpster and cause water to sit in the dumpster, both of which increase your weight limit. Throw a tarp over your dumpster if rain is expected to keep the weight of your dumpster down. 

Prevent Neighbors From Dumping in the Dumpster

When neighbors see you have a dumpster, they may be tempted to sneak their own trash into your dumpster, thinking one or two bags of debris won't hurt anything. Try to keep the dumpster covered when it is not in use to help prevent neighbors from dumping in your dumpster. 

Donate or Recycle Anything You Can

Finally, be sure to donate or recycle anything that you can. This keeps some items out of the dumpster while also being better for the environment. 

It can be challenging determining the weight of a dumpster and what size dumpster you need based on the type of job that is being completed. A dumpster rental company can help you determine how much waste can fit in the various sizes of dumpsters they have and approximately what the weight of those items are. When in doubt, it is better to size up to avoid overage fees than it is to incur dumpster overage fees.
