Why Kansas City Landscaping Companies Should Rent a Dumpster
Commercial Dumpster Rental Services in South Kansas City and Johnson County
Landscaping companies in the south Kansas City area provide important services for residents and businesses seeking to update, improve, and maintain the look and functionality of their outdoor areas. Shrub and tree removal, deck and patio renovations, and landscape design updates generate waste that many sanitation services can’t or won’t collect. Because of this, landscaping companies are left with the inconvenience of handling waste disposal themselves, which takes time, money, and special equipment.
A Yard Waste Dumpster Rental Saves Time
As your landscaping crew tears out old plant matter, landscaping timbers, french drain systems, or patio stones, they likely create manageable piles of waste to manually transport to your own truck or hauler, which may not be parked as closely as they’d like. Then, once the project is complete, and the company truck is full, your crew has to drive to the nearest landfill or dump to discard the waste. Sometimes this requires driving for miles, depending on the location of the project and your home base.
Carrying loads to your company truck and traveling from the construction site in Lee’s Summit or Olathe, for example, and all the way to the dump takes up a lot of time. Ultimately, the increased time needed to handle waste disposal can drive up the cost of projects, and puts you at risk for losing out on work because your bid is higher than your competitors’.
A dumpster rental essentially brings the landfill to your project. Your team can dispose of waste in one convenient location. And because the dumpsters from Small Haul Containers are sized to fit into a single standard parking space, they fit in places your large dump truck won’t. The manageable dumpster size means it can be placed closer to your work. That means less time spent manually hauling waste. When your work is complete, Small Haul Containers then picks up the full dumpster and handles disposal for you, saving you the time it would take to complete a drop-off at the dump.
A Commercial Dumpster Rental Saves Money
Every hour your team works gets billed back to the project and your client. The time they spend transporting waste to fill the truck, or driving the truck to dispose of the waste costs you payroll money. It also costs your clients extra money! All this extra work might even require you to hire additional crew members to take care of clean-up more efficiently. If clean-up takes more time than you anticipated, you’re paying out more in payroll than you’re receiving from your client based on the guaranteed estimate you provided.
If your estimates exceed your competitors’, you could be passed over for projects when frugal homeowners or business owners choose less expensive options. Every project you don’t get is essentially costing you money because of the time you spent taking measurements, pricing out materials, and calculating the estimate.
A flat-rate dumpster rental for a landscaping company saves you money. Firstly, the rental costs of these dumpsters are stable and non-variable. The price you pay upon booking does not increase, and there are no additional disposal fees. Secondly, your crew does not need to be paid for the extra time it takes to drive to the landfill to dispose of project waste. Once the dumpster is loaded, their clean-up work is done. Small Haul Containers takes care of the rest.
A Container Rental Does Not Require You to Have Special Equipment
Small landscaping companies in Overland Park, especially those just starting out, don’t always have the means to purchase or lease equipment like a dump truck or other large hauler. The purchase price, insurance, and maintenance associated with such vehicles can be cost-prohibitive as well. However, it’s hard to secure landscaping jobs when you are unable to make plans to haul away rubbish and debris at project conclusion.
Especially if your company is still growing, renting a commercial dumpster for disposal of construction materials can save you from having to purchase special equipment until your business can sustain it without financial hardship. You can stay competitive in your industry while professionally disposing of waste in a rented dumpster from Small Haul Containers.

Yard waste cannot be mixed with other materials in our commercial dumpster rentals. There is an additional fee added to your bill if you mix wastes in this manner because of how we process and sort materials for disposal. Similarly, shingles must not be mixed with other materials.
