Read About Our Kansas City Dumpster Rentals, and Stick Around for Our Homeowner Tips!
Fall is upon us, and while we’ve been enjoying the weather and the season for all it’s worth, there are also fall clean-ups to take care of before the winter comes.
Of course, we know you’d rather find ourselves around the fire pit, drinking cider, or going for a hike in the autumn leaves, but there’s also plenty to be done, and a lot of excess waste that comes with it.
However, there’s no need to stress about it. You’ll be back around the fire in no time! Small Haul Containers – your homegrown Kansas City dumpster rental team – can lend a hand, and make the job easier.
Many residential and commercial customers don’t realize that a large or small roll-off dumpster rental can be of great assistance during a fall cleanup. Small Haul Containers has your solution for any fall yard project you can imagine. Below, we’ll cover the projects our business can help you with, explain how you’ll benefit, and – as an added bonus – we’ll give you some of our favorite fall yard clean up tips and tricks.
What are the Different Kinds of Fall Yard Projects?
If you’re new to fall clean-ups, there are a few basic projects that are important to knock out before winter comes.
- Leaf Raking
- Trimming Branches
- Gutter Cleaning
- Brush Clearing
These are all necessary projects to make sure your property is in great shape for the upcoming season. You don’t want freezing leaves on your lawn all winter, and you don’t want frozen debris in your gutter, and ice-laden branches collapsing around your home.
Luckily, our large and small residential rental dumpster can be delivered right to your driveway, exactly where you want one, so you can dispose of your yard waste simply and sustainably. But before we get into that, let’s first make sure you have all the knowledge you need to get a fall clean-up job done well.

What If We Told You We Weren’t Just a Residential Dumpster Rental Service? We Have Homeowner Tips, Too!
These all might seem like pretty simple fall yard clean-up activities, right? However, Small Haul Containers is not only dedicated to getting rid of your junk, waste, and debris when you need us. We’re also here to provide tips that make each of these jobs just a little easier.
Are we expert gardeners and landscapers? No. But we absolutely love the way that Kansas Citians beautify their property throughout the year, making our city’s neighborhoods some of the very best in the nation. So, here are some tips that will make each of these jobs a bit easier.
A Leaf-Raking Tip from Your Residential Dumpster Rental Team, Small Haul Containers
According to This Old House, there’s a “smart and healthy” way to rake leaves. They recommend alternating hands when you rake so you aren’t using the same position each time. Additionally, they suggest raking all of your leaves into a tarp, and then disposing of them. This way you’re not bending as you fill up flimsy hardware store bags.
Why Trim Branches?
You want to be sure you trim branches around your home because winter winds and ice can easily break them, causing storm damage or affecting power lines. Additionally, one of our favorite gardening websites recommends pruning trees back to ensure they are less susceptible to disease. In the case of some trees, trimming and pruning allows them to grow back more healthfully. Perhaps you’ll have even more beautiful leaves next fall!
A Gutter Hack from Robby, Co-Owner of Our Residential Dumpster Rental Company
One of our favorite ways to get the leaves and gunk out of gutters is a two-fold process involving your leaf blower and your hose. One warning, first! Make sure you haven’t already raked around your home, because there’s going to be more leaves after this process. The worst thing that can happen is a leaf and gunk mishap after you’ve already cleaned the yard.
Here are two easy steps to follow if you want to clean your gutters fast:
- Get up on a ladder or roof with the leaf blower and blast as many leaves out as you can.
- Then, when you’re just left with gunk, use a hose with a long spray wand or another high-powered extension, and just flush everything else down the drain.
We Love These Tips, You Say, But How Can a Residential Dumpster Rental Help With These Projects?
Now that you have some new ideas for getting these jobs done right, let’s focus on how we can help with one of our large or small residential dumpsters.
Here’s how this works:
- Call us when you’re ready to get your fall clean-up started.
- Let us help you with sizing (we like to compare our dumpster sizes to the number of pickup trucks you’d need to do the job yourself – for example, our smallest rental dumpster is the equivalent of three truck beds full of debris).
- Tell us when and where you want your large or small roll-off dumpster rental.
- Customize the experience with any particulars we need to know to ensure you’re happy with our delivery process.
- We deliver your rental dumpster on-time, every time. Our residential dumpster rentals in the Kansas City area are delivered carefully and precisely, so your property is left unaffected.
- You dump the yard waste! Take care of your project on your time, and dump the yard waste (keep in mind that yard waste needs to be in its own container – not mixed in with other household debris – otherwise, an additional fee of $75 applies).
- We haul it off! We come back on-time, every time, as well! Your yard waste and the roll-off dumpster rental will be out of your way, leaving your yard pristine and ready for a season spent indoors with family and friends.
Our services are consistent, efficient, and marked by our excellent customer service, no matter when you need us. However, there are additional benefits that you may not have considered: the environment. Keep reading for more!

Why is Our Residential Dumpster Rental Service Considered Environmentally-Friendly?
The environmental cost of getting rid of debris may be more harmful to people and our air than you’d expect. At Small Haul Containers – your leaders for Kansas City dumpster rentals – we’re committed to making the least environmental impact for the benefit of this area we love so much.
Why Burning May Not Be the Best Option as a Waste Management SolutionMany folks like to burn their extra yard debris, including leaves, branches, weeds, and
more. While this practice is often seen as a desirable way to get rid of debris fast in the fall, there are some considerations to be made before engaging in this practice.
Burning yard waste can affect air-quality for people who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other breathing conditions. This is because the smoke that is generated from these burns contains mold spores and other allergens.
Instead, consider a way of disposing of debris that is just as simple. There’s no bagging or back pain involved. You can get a residential roll-off dumpster and get rid of everything there. This is just as practical as burning, and it protects the people around you, as well as the overall air quality.
What Makes Dumpster Bags an Unsustainable Option as a Waste Management Solution
Many folks also consider dumpster bags because they seem like easy options fordumping waste and washing our hands of the job quickly. However, these bags are not recommended as a waste solution because of their environmental impact.
These bags are only meant for a one-time use, and they’re made of plastic. Imagine one of these things floating around somewhere in the ocean after someone does a leaf cleanup. It’s not pretty.
Instead, consider our beautifully-maintained, clean, small roll-off rental dumpsters that can’t float, and won’t end up in the ocean in the first place. Our residential dumpster rentals can also be reused. The only thing they accumulate, job after job, are the memories of happy homeowners who’ve used them.
