What Do You Put Under a Dumpster to Keep from Rolling & Protect Your Driveway in Provo, UT?

Why Choose Rolys® Dumpster Rentals

There is no better way to get rid of clutter, construction waste and other debris that starts to accumulate when you set out on a big project at home, than to rent a dumpster. This can be an easy way to take care of all the garbage that comes from your project. However, you don’t want to find that you have damaged your driveway in the process. Luckily, there are some things that you can do to make sure your driveway is unfazed by the dumpster that you need to get work done on your home. Rolys Dumpster is here to share some tips to ensure your driveway is protected when renting a dumpster.

Tips to Protect Your Driveway When Renting a Dumpster

When you have your dumpster rental delivered to your home, you will more than likely end up putting it on your driveway so that it is easily accessible throughout the project. However, many homeowners are worried that the dumpster will cause damage to that part of their property. Followijng are some tips to make sure that isn’t going to happen:

-Place Wood Under Dumpster: One simple solution to the problem is to cover the driveway with wood. You don’t have to cover the entire thing, just make sure the area that you have decided to have the dumpster placed on has a large piece of plywood on the surface to give your driveway the protection you need. If you don’t have a large piece of plywood to lay down, you can also use 2x4s to get the job done. Simply put the 2x4s down under the wheels of the dumpster and have it strategically placed on them.

-Proper Dumpster Weight Distribution: It might be tempting to simply throw whatever you want into the dumpster without giving it much thought. However, you will want to make sure that the weight is evenly distributed to make sure that no damage to the driveway occurs. When it is unbalanced, you might find that the excessive weight in just one area will cause the dumpster to shift and move around which can cause scratching and makes on the driveway.

-Avoid Leaking from Dumpster: Make sure that the dumpster isn’t leaking anything onto your driveway. There might be some wet materials that have been put in the dumpster. It isn’t uncommon for any liquid that gets into the dumpster to leak onto your driveway and cause staining. Avoid putting these substances into the dumpster to avoid this problem all together. If you do have to put liquid in the dumpster, strategically place it to avoid leaking.
