What to Expect When Renting a Dumpster in Massachusetts During Winter

The weather is changing in Massachusetts, the air is getting colder, and you might be starting to pick up your indoor projects, such as remodeling your bathroom or kitchen. This is a perfect time to start thinking about renting a dumpster in the winter for those house projects.

Salt and Shovel your Driveway when Renting a Dumpster in the Winter

Because the weather in Massachusetts can be unpredictable, it is important to salt and shovel your driveway and part of the sidewalk if there is any sign of snow, especially if you are considering renting a dumpster in the winter. When you are walking out to bring unwanted items to your dumpster, you also do not want to slip and fall on a patch of ice due to an unsalted driveway or sidewalk! 

Doing both of these things can keep the driveway clear and safe for not just you and your family, but the Pleasant View truck drivers and the dumpster itself. 

Bundle Up

This may seem obvious, but bundle up when disposing of things into the dumpster rental in the winter. Even though you may be walking out into the cold for a short amount of time, it is vital to keep yourself warm. Apply layers as needed!

The health and safety of our customers is always the number one priority when you work with Pleasant View.

Cover Your Dumpster During Inclement Weather – Have a Tarp Handy

We always recommend placing a tarp over your dumpster rental if there is inclement weather coming. Living in New England and especially Massachusetts can be unpredictable when it comes to the weather conditions.

Having a tarp can prevent the snow from weighing down the content of the dumpster rental in the winter, as water weight can negatively affect your rental. You can easily find a tarp at a hardware store in your local area of order one online.
