The Temporary Dumpster Rental Guide for Fort Worth Residents

Everything You Need to Know About Dumpster Rentals In Fort Worth Tx

Need to quickly rent a roll-off dumpster for a residential project? Don't panic! Wildcat will walk you through the key factors to consider when choosing the right temporary dumpster rental.

Choose the size and type of rental dumpster.

One of the first questions you need to tackle is what roll off dumpster size you will need. Start by calculating the amount of waste you will be generating and how much space it will take up. Different sizes come in different geometrical volumes, so make sure to pick the right type of roll-off dumpster for your project. Wildcat suggests the client always measure the amount of waste when choosing an open-top containment waste solution for the project. Consider weight limits too, as overloading can incur extra fees.

Check what items are prohibited from being disposed in the dumpsters.

It is not always a given that all waste is allowed in a dumpster. The landfills in Tarrant county forbid certain items from being disposed in a dumpster. Commonly banned items include oil and other hazardous materials like paint, batteries, fertilizers, tires, medical waste, or flammable liquids, so make sure to check for prohibited items on the Wildcat FAQ list before renting a dumpster. Not sure of the local regulations in your North Texas county? Contact your local solid waste centers for more info on disposal guidance.

Learn the acceptable weight limits for your dumpster rental. 

Your Wildcat dumpster rental comes with a maximum weight limit that tells you how much debris you can put into the container, this information can be found in the FAQ. Sticking to this weight limit is important so that your rental does not sustain damage with overloads of heavy materials, which incurs additional costs. Going over the given weight limit can delay pickup and disposal and incur additional weight overage fees.

Inquire about any additional fees or restrictions regarding your rental period.

It is important to inquire about any additional charges with any dumpster rental company you choose, as most companies have a set rental period, which incurs additional costs if the rental needs to be extended. Look into any additional fees such as pick-up, delivery, fuel surcharge charges, and applicable taxes. Make sure to establish a timeline so that you are aware of when the dumpster needs to be picked up and disposed of in order for you to stay within your rental contract and avoid additional unexpected charges.

Get familiar with local laws and regulations related to temporary residential dumpsters.

Before committing to a dumpster for rent, familiarize yourself with local laws and regulations. Some towns and cities in North Texas have agreements with larger waste management companies prohibiting smaller roll-off dumpster companies from servicing the area. Knowing all these details ahead of time will help determine what rental company is best suited for you.
