Renting A Bin For A DIY Project? What You Need To Know

Posted on

If you need to get a bin for a home improvement project, like a BIZ Mechanical Complete Waste Services demolition bin, you need to make sure that you get some no trespassing and no dumping signs at the same time. Did you know that you are liable for people that get hurt on your property, even if they are trespassing and digging through your dumpster?

There are other issues that can occur if people try dumping their trash or debris in your bin. You don't want some person digging for scrap metal, or anyone jumping in and getting hurt since this can be a real hazard, and there are some other things you'll want to consider.

Mark the Property and Warn Trespassers

When you mark your property as private and warn people to trespass, it shows that you did what you could to keep them out of your yard. If they come in anyway it would be at their own risk and they would be violating the law. This means they can't try to sue you if they get hurt on something when trying to take items out of the dumpster or moving around inside the dumpster.

Cover the Dumpster at Night

Unfortunately, people will try to dump their debris in your bin, and they could have items that are toxic, illegal, or that don't meet the restrictions that are set by the bin company. If you can get a bin that comes with a cover that is great, if not you should use a tarp so it's less easy for someone to get something into the dumpster without getting caught. This will also keep animals out at night.

Call When You're Done

Call your rental company as soon as you're done with the project to come get the unit so you don't have any other stress about it being on your property. The great thing about a bin rental company is they drop the unit off for you to use as needed, and pick it up as soon as you're done with the project.

Renting a bin is one of the easiest ways to get rid of all your debris at one time and you don't have to worry about doing the hauling on your own. Just make sure that you protect the bin and yourself so you don't end up with a problem when someone or a local cat or dog tries to dig around in your dumpster bin.
