If you are going to be doing any construction work on your business property, then think about having a commercial roll-off dumpster in place before the construction begins. If you have hired contractors, they will tend to this. However, if you are overseeing the job yourself, then the rental of the dumpster will be your responsibility. By having it dropped off before construction begins, you can prevent a lot of mess and problems from the start of the job. Here are some things you want to understand about commercial roll-off dumpster rentals.
You want to have a proper place cleared out for it
The dumpster should be as close to the work area as possible, but it also needs to be far enough so it is out of the way and it needs to be put on level ground. You want to know where it is being put ahead of time and make sure the area is cleared out so it can be delivered without hassle.
You want to have a system for disposing of everything
Make sure it is clear what all is going in the dumpster and what materials you want to have set aside for other things, such as future projects or even to resell to recoup some of your money. Everyone needs to be informed of the system and be on the same page. Otherwise, a lot of things that you don't want to be thrown away will be. Also, things may go easier if you designate certain people to tend to the disposal of the trash because then you know the wrong things won't end up in the dumpster.
Keep the area outside the dumpster clean
It's easy for debris to fall on the outside of the roll-off dumpster when things are being tossed into it. However, anything that lands outside of it should be immediately picked up and put in it. This will decrease the chances of a workplace injury by someone ending up getting injured, such as by stepping on a piece of wood with a large nail in it, for example.
Call before it's full
If you know you are going to have the dumpster full soon, then you want to call up as soon as you can to let the company know so you can have it picked up and an empty one brought to you before you end up with the dumpster full and nowhere to throw anything else away.
