Whether you’re undertaking a home renovation, a large-scale construction, or major room clean-outs, having a roll-off dumpster is an invaluable asset to any sized project. After scheduling your rental, the next step is to prepare your job site for delivery. While our team is expertly trained to deliver your dumpster when and where you need it, there are steps you can take to ensure a smooth, safe, and efficient waste removal process. Avian Carting is your trusted partner in trash disposal, and we’re here to guide you through everything you need to know to prep for your dumpster delivery.

Choose the Right Location

The first step, and the most crucial, is selecting an appropriate spot for your dumpster to be placed. The location should be easily accessible for you, your construction team, and our delivery truck drivers. The ideal area is flat and free from overhead obstructions, like low-hanging tree branches or electrical wires. Choosing the right location helps ensure a dumpster delivery that’s free of hassles or delays.

Clear the Area

Before the dumpster arrives, it’s important to clear the delivery area of any debris, vehicles, or obstructions. Ideally, the area should cater to the size of the dumpster: clear a large enough space to accommodate the width of your rental and allow for easy loading. If you have any questions about choosing the right location for your delivery, give our team a call ahead of time, and we’ll help you pick the best spot for the job.

Protect Your Property

Our Avian dumpsters are big, bold, and heavy-duty– and with large sizes and dense weight comes possible damage to driveways and lawns. While our team uses preventative measures to protect your property, your assistance can ensure a smooth delivery. For example, having plywood or boards on hand to place under the dumpster’s contact points will help prevent damage to concrete or grass surfaces.

Safety First

Ensure the area around the dumpster remains safe by keeping children and pets away from the site and being mindful of the materials you dispose of. Hazardous waste, such as motor oil or propane tanks, cannot be placed in an Avian dumpster. Our full list of accepted and prohibited items can be found here.

Plan for Weather Conditions

If rain or snow is forecasted during your rental period, protect your dumpster from accumulating water by placing a cover or tarp over the top. Excess water from precipitation can make waste disposal challenging, so have a plan to keep the site dry in case the storm clouds roll in.
