Plow The Area – Make sure the spot where you plan on your dumpster going and the pathway to get to it are clear of snowfall and debris.
De-Ice Like Crazy – Use rock salt, kitty litter or sand to cover the area in which your rental will sit as well as the pathway you will be walking upon to get to it.
Protective Boards – Your local dumpster rental company should provide protective boards to keep your dumpster stable and to protect your property. Be sure to bring it up when booking your dumpster. Situations can change overnight so, if a weird obstacle or scenario occurs while your driver is there to drop off your rental, simply ask their opinion. Dumpster rental drivers always have great ideas on how to handle an obstacle creatively.
Protect Your Rental – Use a tarp with bungee cords or a piece of plywood to cover your dumpster rental and keep out rain or snow. The water could throw your weight off and could potentially increase the risk of slippage.
