What to Look for in a Residential Dumpster Service

dumpster rental size

It happens to all of us. We collect enough stuff that we don’t know what to do with it anymore. Though sometimes we can donate items, other items aren’t worthy of becoming someone else’s treasure. In these cases, the best strategy is to throw it all away.

But what happens when you have so much stuff that you can’t fit it all in your residential garbage can? Though some trash companies allow you to refill your trash can multiple times while you stand there and then empty it repeatedly, this isn’t always a realistic (or convenient) solution. When we have accumulated a lot of junk, we want it gone, and we want it gone now.

4 Things to Look for When You Need Residential Dumpster Service

When you have a lot of stuff that you are ready to part with, you want it gone quickly. The longer those items sit in your house, taking up space and accumulating dust, the more your stress levels will rise. Thankfully, there are residential dumpster services available to help you get rid of the items you want when you want to get rid of them.

If you are located in the New Jersey area and are logging in to find dumpster rentals near me or dumpster rentals NJ, take a moment to educate yourself on what to look for in a residential dumpster service.

Customer service 

As with any consumer-facing business, customer service is critical. Look for a dumpster service that offers fair, up-front pricing calls you ahead of drop-off, and cleans up after themselves. You want to know that you are going to be treated fairly and with respect. And, many dumpster rental companies skimp on customer service just so that they can keep costs down. These companies are missing the boat, though – there is no reason that a dumpster service provider can’t offer excellent customer service and low prices.


If you are ready to part with your trash, you don’t want it taking up space any longer than it has to. If you call a residential dumpster service that can’t deliver a dumpster to you for several weeks, don’t assume this is because they are receiving a lot of business, and this must mean they do a great job. Instead, this is a sign of a disorganized business that can’t adequately take care of their customers. The best companies can deliver a dumpster to you either the same day or the next business day.


Residential dumpsters should be smaller than commercial dumpsters. Don’t find yourself in a tough predicament by failing to understand the size difference. The last thing you want is the dumpster company to arrive with a dumpster that is too large to fit on your driveway.

Look for a residential dumpster that is 15 yards in length (12 feet) that only takes up the same amount of space as a minivan. 


It can be frustrating looking for a residential dumpster company in your area. And it’s not a good experience to get through the reservation process only to find out that the dumpster company doesn’t service your neighborhood.
