For any home project in Louisville, KY, be sure to have a residential dumpster rental on site.

Whether you are installing new flooring, remodeling a bathroom, or finally decluttering the basement, having a residential dumpster rental can make any job easier. Many think that dumpster rentals are just for large commercial projects, when in fact a residential dumpster rental is perfect for homeowners and DIY projects.

A residential dumpster rental in Louisville, KY is a popular choice for a large-scale cleanup or home improvement project because they provide a simple way to get rid of all that bulky debris, waste, and unwanted items. Having a small dumpster on hand makes it much easier to toss things quickly to keep your space clear and safe.

At Economy Dumpster in Louisville, KY, we take care of all the heavy lifting. We drop the dumpster off, give you plenty of time to fill it up and then haul it away with one flat rate. With a wide range of dumpster sizes, you can find the perfect option for your next project.

Benefits of Renting a Roll Off Dumpster

Save Time:

When you’re working hard, the last thing you want to do is stop what you’re doing to deal with the pile of trash piling up in the front yard. If you are moving, cleaning, remodeling, landscaping, or running a business, you have enough to do. Time is your most valuable asset, don’t waste it driving to the dump.

Save Money:

It may seem cheaper to just borrow a pickup truck and haul it off yourself, but that’s not always the case. The average pickup truck is significantly smaller than a 10-yard residential dumpster rental. This is going to require several trips to the dump, landfill, or waste facility. All the wasted money on gas driving back and forth, combined with the dumping fees associated with most landfills in Louisville, KY add up quickly.

Stay Safe:

A residential dumpster rental is designed for the nasty stuff. Construction materials, mold, old and dirty items, and landscaping materials are not items you want in your truck. A dumpster is the best and safest place for these types of items. You don’t want to risk damaging or ruining your personal vehicle just to save a few bucks. The walls of a dumpster can take a beating, and keep hazardous items safely contained.

Projects Best Suited for a Residential Driveway Dumpster

Home Improvement: Whether you’re remodeling a bathroom or building an entire home addition, we have a residential dumpster rental that can help. Common household debris like flooring, siding, shingles, tile and even most appliances is perfect for our residential dumpster rentals. Keep your site organized and we can help you haul away almost everything, (including the kitchen sink.)

Demo Day: If you recently purchased a fixer-upper or foreclosure home in Louisville, KY and demolition day is in your future, don’t start without a residential dumpster rental. It doesn’t take long to fill up a pick-up truck. Having a roll off dumpster rental on hand allows you to keep working and we will haul it all away at once.

Storm Cleanup: Storms can show up out of nowhere. Wind and hail can wreak havoc on your home, yard, roof, siding, etc. Flooding inside the home can ruin furniture and cause a stinky mess. Tornados can leave a giant path of rubble in their wake. When disaster hits Louisville, KY, having a residential dumpster rental on-site is the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to clear out your home, streets, and neighborhoods. If others in your neighborhood have been affected, you can split the cost and work together to bring your homes back to normal.

Updating your Landscaping

Putting in a pool? Redoing your front garden beds? Installing a retaining wall, deck, or renovating your outdoor living space? A residential dumpster rental is perfect for landscaping projects big and small. Rocks, grass, leaves, trees, plants, and other yard waste generated by landscaping projects is dirty, muddy, and not something you want to fill your truck up with. Hauling away large bushes and trees can be too much work for a small pick-up truck. Having a dumpster on site allows you to fill it up with items both large and small and have it hauled away for you.

Please Note: Particularly heavy landscaping items like rock, concrete, sand, or cinder blocks may require a heavy-duty concrete dumpster. Concrete dumpsters are designed to carry a heavier load, so if you’re working with these types of items, ask about our specific offerings for concrete dumpsters.

If you are planning to move in or out of the Louisville, KY area, having a residential dumpster rental can be a huge help.

Getting Ready to Move:

Big decluttering projects need a big haul away option and moving is a great time to purge your house of unnecessary items. If you’re moving out of the Louisville, KY area, use a residential dumpster rental on-site to quickly get rid of old and broken furniture, baby supplies and clothing you no longer need or want. Even small things can add up quickly. Household objects like old, dusty lamps, tables, chairs, unused office supplies, paperwork, small household appliances, outdated home décor and knickknacks can all be tossed. Our small residential dumpster rental fits easily in your driveway without damaging your property and is perfect for a whole house cleanout. With a roll off dumpster rental in place, you can throw stuff out as you’re packing, and haul away anything you don’t want to take with you.

Items You Cannot Throw in Dumpster

Cost of a Home Dumpster Rental

The cost of a Louisville, KY residential dumpster rental is cheaper than you think. But why spend several hundred dollars to rent a dumpster when you can haul loads of waste or debris to the landfill yourself? The truth is, it might actually be cheaper to use a dumpster service.

When handling the waste hauling yourself, it can take a significant amount of time and energy to load the trailer or truck with the debris, properly and safely secure the load once it’s full, drive it to the dump site, pay the fees, and unload it yourself. For larger projects, it may require 2, 3, or even more roundtrips to the landfill outside of Louisville, KY. We believe your time is more valuable than that.

With a residential dumpster rental on site, all that’s required of you is to fill it. No driving, emptying, securing the load, driving back, etc. The cost of each dumpster includes delivery, pickup, 10 days of use, and the full weight of your debris. There will be an additional cost added if, at the time of pickup, the amount of debris in the dumpster exceeds the weight limit or is heaping over the walls.

At Economy Dumpster, we have several dumpster sizes to choose from to 10 to 40 yards. For most residential projects a dumpster between 10 and 20 yards is plenty of space.
