How Do I Maximize Space in My Dumpster in Layton, UT? Flatten Cardboard Boxes & More

Why Choose Rolys® Dumpster Rentals

Many people don’t give two seconds thought to how they should fill up a dumpster. For many people, they have the dumpster delivered and they just start chucking their trash inside of it. The proper way to fill a dumpster is something that is not talked about very often. However, when you load a dumpster properly you will find that there are is a lot more that you can fit inside it. Rolys Dumpster Rental is here to talk about the right way to fill up your dumpster.

How Do You Load a Dumpster the Right Way?

Believe it or not, there is a right and wrong way to fill a dumpster. We would like to share our best tips to help you fill your dumpster the right way.

  • Don’t Throw in Large Items: The first thing that you need to think about when filling your dumpster is the size of the items you’re getting rid of. If you have any large items that you are throwing away, make sure that you break them before you throw them into the dumpster. When you simply throw a large item in there it takes up a lot more space than it would if it had been broken into smaller pieces.
  • Flatten Cardboard: There is more than likely going to be some cardboard that you’re throwing away as well. If you are throwing away cardboard, make sure that you’ve flattened it before you throw it away. This is a huge space saver.
  • Check for Gaps in Dumpster: As you were working on your project and throwing things away, make sure that you are checking to make sure there aren’t any gaps inside the dumpster. If there are, try rearranging things or fitting smaller items into those gaps to take advantage of that space.
  • Heavy Items at the Bottom: You should always throw your heaviest items away first. Take a quick inventory of the things that you are throwing away and make sure that your heaviest items are loaded first followed by the lighter items.
  • Even Weight Distribution Matters: You want to make sure that you have a well balanced dumpster. Make sure that you are evenly distributing the weight of the items that you’re throwing away. This can help avoid any disasters during the dumping and transporting process. Make sure you are throwing things away on both sides of the dumpster to help with this common problem.
  • Avoid Overfilling: It might be tempting to fill your dumpster as high as you can with the items you’re getting rid of. However, you need to avoid overfilling as this can lead to extra charges.
