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.

    Thanks for pointing out that we need to remove the snow on our path when going out and put our trash in a dumpster to prevent slip-and-fall accidents. I will follow your advice when I rent a dumpster for my home here in Salt Lake City, Utah this year. It’s my first time to be having my own place, so I definitely need these tips for my convenience and safety.

    Thanks so much for the advice to salt and shovel your driveway so you can avoid slipping while you add things if you rent a dumpster in the winter. My brother has been getting stressed with the amount of stuff he accumulated in his house and he’s been wanting to clean out. Most of it is unsalvageable trash so he’s been looking into finding a place he can rent a dumpster from so he can start the cleaning process. We’ll also have to make sure we keep his driveway clean of snow like you said to avoid injury and mess.

    Thanks for pointing out that it is best to cover the dumpster with a tarp when inclement weather is going to keep them from affecting the rental negatively. I can benefit from this piece of advice a lot now that I plan to rent a dumpster this coming April. My house will be renovated completely which is why we need a place for the construction debris to keep the process from making a mess in the neighborhood.

    I like the tip you gave that appropriate solution for waste management could be helped by your service provider for your safety. The other day, my brother told me he and his business partner were looking for a reliable dumpster solution to help them safely dispose of waste from their clothing property renovation. He asked if I had thoughts on the best option for renting a dumpster. I appreciate the information about the importance of safety. I’ll tell him that consulting a well-known dumpster rental service can help with proper waste management.

    I have a bunch of junk that I need to get rid of after a big home remodeling project. It makes sense that I would want to get a dumpster rental for this! I’ll be sure to look for discounts to see if I can save money.

    I appreciate it when you explained that there must be a tarp over the dumpster for rent to keep the snow from weighing down the contents of the container. I will keep that in mind because I plan to rent on starting today to have a place for our waste and not have an eyesore in our yard. Hopefully, there would be a size that is perfect for a single-family home’s driveway that will not block the car’s path.
