5 Things to consider when choosing a location for your dumpster.

When placing a dumpster on a construction project, it’s important to choose a location that is easily accessible for waste removal.

Some key considerations include the following. 

Proximity to the work area: 

Ideally, you should place the dumpster close to the construction site to minimize the distance that waste has to be brought.


Space requirements:

Ensure that the dumpster fits in the designated area and that there is enough space for the truck to safely maneuver in and out of the site.



You should place the dumpster in an area that is easily accessible for the truck to pick up and empty without causing any damage to property or obstructions.



Avoid placing the dumpster near overhead power lines or areas that may pose a risk to workers.



Consider parking availability for the truck, and ensure that the dumpster is not blocking any fire lanes or emergency access routes.
