Whether you need to get rid of trash before a big move or simply need to rent a receptacle for summer cleaning at your school or place of business using a roll off dumpster provides you with a convenient means to dispose of unwanted materials. Before you decide to rent a roll of number become aware of any hazards associated with using such a receptacle. Keep small children away from dumpsters and evenly load the containers to avoid any tragic accidents.

Think safety and research all that you need to know before using any roll off services.

No Overloading

Resist the urge to overload your dumpster just to take the most advantage of your rental. Avoid any additional fees from the rental company by loading responsibly. You might not even be able to get your dumpster picked up if you overload the receptacle. Prevent any safety hazard as items stacked too high tend to fall off of dumpsters and can damage properties or harm individuals in the vicinity. Never load your roll off dumpster above the container top to stay safe.

Safety First

Since many children see dumpsters as play things be mindful of safety. Prohibit kids from playing by or near dumpsters. Since people using these containers might not see or hear small children playing by dumpsters you can avoid a dangerous situation by not allowing kids to be anywhere near the receptacle. Many items being tossed into dumpsters contain nails or sharp edges which can injure children and adults alike. Since kids like to play hide and go seek or similar games close the dumpster side door if you are not actively using the container. Talk to your children about dumpster safety lessons to drill home the point that these large containers are dangerous and should never be viewed as a play thing.

Never Toss Forbidden Materials in Dumpsters

Avoid tossing any toxic, flammable or hazardous materials in dumpsters to adhere by safety regulations. Be mindful of any local ordinances related to prohibited materials. Dangerous materials can threaten residents who live or walk by the dumpster during the rental period. Be safe to protect your family and friends.  Keep workers at the facility working with the dumpster as well as the driver transporting the dumpster in mind too. Tossing hazardous material into a roil off dumpster might seem like a quick and easy way to dispose of materials but you can jeopardize the safety of many people through your moment of mindlessness. Dispose of such trash in accordance with local laws. Avoid any stiff fines and think about others. Leave dangerous materials out of your dumpster.

Even out the Load

Spread out trash materials evenly to safely use your roll off dumpster. Load heavy materials from front to back to evenly distribute any weight throughout the container. Piling all heavy materials near the end of the dumpster can create a safety hazard during transport.  Distributing the load evenly can help workers pick up your dumpster and transport the materials from the rental spot to the warehouse.
