Are You Considering Renting A Dumpster For Your Elderly Parents’ House Cleanout?

Helping elderly parents with a house cleanout can be a daunting task, but renting a dumpster can streamline the process and alleviate stress. Here’s a guide to renting a dumpster for your elderly parents’ house cleanout:

1. Assess the Scope of the Cleanout:

Begin by assessing the extent of the cleanout. Determine which areas of the house need decluttering and the types of items that will be disposed of.

2. Estimate the Volume of Debris:

Estimate the volume of debris that will need to be disposed of. Consider items such as old furniture, appliances, household items, and general clutter.

3. Choose the Right Dumpster Size:

Selecting the appropriate dumpster size is essential to ensure you have enough capacity for all the items being disposed of. For smaller cleanouts, a 10-yard dumpster may suffice, while larger cleanouts may require a 20-yard or 30-yard dumpster.

4. Consider Accessibility:

Assess the accessibility of the property for dumpster placement. Ensure there is sufficient space for the dumpster to be delivered and positioned close to the areas where items will be removed.

5. Determine Rental Duration:

Determine how long you will need the dumpster for the house cleanout. Consider factors such as the pace of decluttering, the availability of assistance, and any potential delays.

6. Coordinate with Fleetwood Waste:

Contact Fleetwood Waste to discuss your dumpster rental needs. Their experienced team can guide on choosing the right dumpster size and arrange for delivery and pickup at your convenience.

7. Sort and Organize Items:

Before the dumpster arrives, sort and organize items to be disposed of. Separate items that can be donated, recycled, or discarded, and prioritize decluttering areas of the house systematically.

8. Load the Dumpster Safely:

When loading the dumpster, exercise caution to avoid injuries. Use proper lifting techniques, and distribute weight evenly to prevent overloading or imbalance.

9. Dispose of Hazardous Materials Properly:

Ensure hazardous materials such as chemicals, paints, or electronics are disposed of properly. Fleetwood Waste can provide guidance on disposing of hazardous materials safely and responsibly.
