How high can I fill my dumpster?

You can fill your dumpster as high as you like, provided that you really do not load it higher in relation to the sides of the container. Over filling the dumpster could cause the waste or debris to slide off as the dumpster is loaded onto the truck or as the truck is driving. Overloaded or heavy dumpsters are not really safe, and companies WOn't carry unsafe loads as a way to safeguard motorists and passengers on the road.

In certain places, dumpster loads must be tarped for safety. In case your load is too high, it will not be able to be tarped so you'll have to remove some of the debris before it can be hauled away. This might result in additional fees if it needs you to keep the dumpster for a longer duration of time. Remember to maintain your load no higher in relation to the sides of the dumpster, and you will be fine.


Does my waste get recycled?

When you rent a temporary dumpster, your goal is to fill it up and have the waste hauled away. But if you prefer your waste recycled, you may have to really go about it in a somewhat different manner. Waste in most temporary dumpsters isn't recycled as the containers are so large and carry so much stuff.

If you're interested in recycling any waste from your project, check into getting smaller containers. Many dumpster rental companies in Fort Myer have a wide variety of containers available, including those for recycling. These are typically smaller than temporary dumpsters; they are the size of regular trash bins and smaller.

If you need to recycle, learn if the company you're working with uses single stream recycling (you don't have to sort the stuff) or in the event that you will need to organize the recyclable stuff into different containers (aluminum cans, cardboard, plastics, etc.) This can really make a difference in the variety of containers you should rent.
