A debris box or a dumpster is a great option when you are working on a project to help move out your debris and make sure that your project site stays clear and safe. Determining the right size dumpster that you need for your project can help get things started. There are plenty of different sizes of dumpsters that you can rent to get the job done.
Standard Box 8’ x 22’ x 6’
The standard box is great for just about any project, but especially for very large jobs. This is one of the largest dumpsters that you can get, and this size offers the ability to hold up to 10 pickup truck loads of debris. This means that you are going to be spending less time going back and forth to the dump, and you can keep to your timelines and keep working.
This is the most basic size box that you can get, and it works well for those that have a huge amount of debris that needs to be removed. Larger jobs need a larger dumpster that is going to hold a large amount of debris easily. This size dumpster is ideal for large jobs like construction sites, demolition sites and more.
Low Boy 8’ x 16’ x 2’
Another great option is the low boy dumpster. This is a dumpster that is great if you have very heavy materials like concrete that are not going to be easy to put up over the high side of a taller dumpster. This is a great option that is going to work well for the removal of very large items like decks, basements, roof pieces and more. These boxes are still large enough that they can be used for a large amount of materials. This is a great heavy-duty option.
Don’t Forget to Recycle
There are many reasons to recycle. Probably the most important reason is that recycling extends the life of existing landfills. When landfills reach their capacity and closed, new landfills are usually sited a long way from urban areas. This increases transportation costs. Also, many construction projects require a recycling/diversion deposit. You can receive a refund of all or part of this money if you can prove you recycle or diverted material from the landfill.
