It’s easy to see why there is so much construction and renovation going on in Denver. As you can see in the video, even in the midst of construction, keeping the environment clean is a real priority in Denver. Residents and government officials alike are interested in all aspects of protecting the environment, from recycling to waste management.
If you are involved in some form of construction, whether as a commercial contractor or as a residential homeowner remodeling a home, Affordable Roll-Offs is here to help you manage the waste created by your projects. Renting a dumpster from Affordable Roll-Offs is easy and we cover the Denver Metro Area. Here are some quick tips to help you make the most out of your dumpster rental:
- It is important that you keep the area around your dumpster clean. Leave 2-4 feet of empty space for easy access.
- It is amazing how fast your dumpster will fill up if you are not strategic about how you put waste in. To get the most out of your dumpster put bulky objects in the back first and then work your way forward and up. Have a lot of cardboard? Be sure to break down boxes and make them flat before you throw them in. This simple step will save you a ton of room! If you have smaller trash put it into the empty spaces between the bulky trash. Yes, this method may sound like a huge game of Tetris, but organizing your trash will help to ensure you do not need a second dumpster. Who doesn’t need to save time and money these days?
- You see that “Fill Line” on your dumpster? It really does matter! Do not fill your dumpster to the tippy top. If your dumpster is overflowing items may fall out when it is picked up. No one wants a couch or pieces of wood falling out on the highway! Our customers’ safety (as well as anyone traveling on the roads) is a huge priority to us and we need your help! Please be advised that our drivers WILL NOT remove a dumpster that is over-filled. Sorry. We can’t. We care too much about others’ wellbeing.
- Starting a new home project or maybe just tackling some spring cleaning? We have you covered! Please feel free to put the following items in your dumpster: home and commercial renovation fragments, spring cleaning trash, backyard waste, construction rubble, old appliances, broken-down furniture, trashy carpets, and demolition wreckage. Not sure about something you are throwing away? Please give us a call at (303) 339-0293 to make sure it is ok!
- There are certain things you CANNOT throw in the dumpster, including batteries, e-waste, tires, compact fluorescent light bulbs, full cans of paint, and full cans of oil. A good rule of thumb is if it is labeled flammable or hazardous material, it does not belong in the dumpster. Please dispose of those items responsibly!
