Rent the Right Size Container for the Job



You will almost certainly need a container one size bigger than you think you need. Carpeting, scrap wood, drywall--all of these waste products take up volume. Concrete, rock, and dirt are more weight than volume, and usually you can only fill the container quarter full (verify this with your Service company). Finally, containers of similar volume may come in different dimensions. One dimension that you want to ask the Service company about is height. It's hard to heft weighty materials over the side of a high container, so ask if you can get a lower container.
