Putting the Container on the Street
If you plan to put the container on the street, make sure you check and see if you need a permit from the city, county, and your homeowner's association. The last thing you want is a delay (or worse yet, a fine), when just as your project gets underway.
Leave Enough Room
Remember that thee containers are large and take up a lot of room. Remember to put it in a location where the truck that's delivering it has room to manuever as it puts it in place. If it's going in your driveway, you might wnat ot place sheets of plywood under the wheels. Finally, make sure there's room around the container to open the doors and to toss material inside.
Rent the Proper Size
Whatever size container you think you need, we strongly recommend renting one size larger. There's always more debris than you think and it doesn't stack in the container as neatly and compactly as you may imagine.
Think About Height
Some containers are pretty high and it may be tough to toss things inside. Consider a ladder and work with a partner to safely get materis into the container without making a second mess around it.
