A Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Almost Makes It Fun
It won’t be long before the holidays are behind us, and clean-up efforts kick into full gear. With a new year looming on the horizon, many homeowners will want to take the opportunity to do a thorough job cleaning up after the holidays.
This year, instead of just throwing out the wrapping paper, boxes, and old holiday decorations that are no longer needed, why not get rid of all the old stuff your new presents replaced?
Rent a Dumpster for the Job
Small Haul Containers, Kansas City’s number one company for residential dumpster rental, can help with the post-holiday clean-out process. Our small dumpster rentals are the perfect solution for homeowners who want to clear out post-holiday trash and other household items that are no longer needed. Many different types of items can be disposed of in a roll-off dumpster rental from Small Haul. And what’s even better is that we take the stress out of the process by bringing the dumpster to you. When you’re finished — or at the end of your rental period — we’ll come back and pick it up. Easy as that pie you consumed at your holiday dinner!
If you’re ready for a post-holiday clean-out, here are a few tips from Small Haul Containers to get you started.
Make a Reservation
Before you lift a finger to throw anything out, consider renting a dumpster for the project. By reserving your container ahead of time, you put a stake in the ground, so to speak. You now have a target date to work toward, and that helps keep you on track.
Reserving a residential dumpster rental first also ensures that you get one for a date that works for you. Our online rental service allows you to check the availability of our small dumpster rentals and choose a date that fits into your busy schedule. You can reserve it on the spot and mark your calendar!
Make a List and Check It Twice
Next, make a list of all the new items you got over the holidays. If you got gift cards, pause and give some thought to what you’ll buy with them. Add those items to the list. Then go through the list again and jot down the old things you have in the house that your new stuff is replacing. Doing this first makes you think about what you already have and what you need to get rid of.
Once the list is done, go through the house and round everything up that you’re getting rid of. Put it all in one place so that when your dumpster arrives, you’ll be ready to toss it all in!
Keep an Open Mind — and Open Eyes
The chances are good that as you’re rounding up items to get rid of, you’ll come across other things that aren’t on the list. That’s okay! Keep your eyes open, and really look at what’s in each room, closet, or cabinet. Keep an open mind, too. Just because you’ve owned something for years doesn’t mean you still need it. If you have things sitting around that are never used and have nearly become part of the furniture, you might consider rounding them up with everything else. Maybe you don’t need them anymore.
Also, remember that a residential dumpster rental is perfect for disposing of old furniture, broken lamps, busted toys, and other items you’ve been meaning to throw out and just haven’t gotten around to. Grab them as you go by. There’s no time like now to haul them out and clean up your home.
Renting a dumpster makes getting rid of large items easy. There’s no need to lift things over your head to get them into the container. Our small dumpster rentals have barn-style doors that swing open, so you can walk items in and set them down. Much easier on your arms and back!
