That said, having a large (albeit stunningly attractive) Bin There Dump That dumpster sitting in your driveway isn’t a situation most folks are familiar with. When the truck shows up to drop off the dumpster there are several things homeowners can do make sure they get the most out of their time.
Here are a few tips to make sure the time spent with a dumpster is productive.
Consolidate Your Junk
Junk comes in all shapes and sizes. It also accumulates, seemingly, in every room of the house. Basements, garages, attics and closets are the key repositories for the broken, neglected bric-a-brac that once seemed so important.
In the days ahead of the arrival of your Bin There Dump That dumpster, one of the best things you can do is start collecting and consolidating those memories turned trash into a single spot. Perhaps it’s one side of the back patio or the garage — maybe someone needs to park on the street for a couple of nights. (If that’s the case, make sure to check with your local police department. Some communities prohibit overnight parking. A quick “heads up” can save you some aggravation.)
Sort The Junk
Junk is junk, right? Wrong. Most of your junk is just that and can be tossed into the dumpster without a second thought. But hazardous or toxic materials may not be placed into a Bin There Dump That dumpster.
Tires, paint, chemicals from your child’s “My First Chemistry Set,” flammable liquids, propane tanks from last summer’s failed barbecue, that yellow cake uranium you were holding for a friend — all forbidden.
Don’t Box Yourself Out
Think strategically. You’ve collected all your junk in one spot, taken out all the hazardous materials making arrangements to dispose of them properly, and cleared a spot for the dumpster to go. That dumpster is going to be there for a day or two. Make sure that wherever it goes, you have access to whatever you need on the other side.
That begins with scheduling your rental dumpster bin drop-off on the side of your driveway where your car isn’t!
If the dumpster sits inside your garage can you still get the lawn mower out to cut the grass over the weekend. Do you have access to your tools? We don’t want to keep you from tinkering on your auto over the weekend, even if it is parked on the street.
Whatever it is you need while the dumpster is in place might need to be relocated temporarily. A little forethought can save a lot of aggravation.
