Conserving the Environment this Holiday Season

I love the Christmas holidays. However, I understand this time of the year can be detrimental to the environment. Do you want to protect the environment for your children and future generations? Consider practicing environmentally-friendly tips during the hectic holiday season. For instance, think about wrapping all of your gifts in recycled materials. Instead of investing in a real Christmas tree, buy an artificial one. You can enjoy putting it up for many years to come. You might also want to limit the amount of lights you decorate with, or avoid using holiday lights altogether. On this blog, I hope you will discover more tips to help you protect the environment.

Choosing The Right Dumpster To Meet Your Needs Can Save You Time And Money

Environmental Blog

Dumpsters come in a wide variety of sizes. From the small 5 yard dumpster that will haul away 5 cubic yards of junk, to the 40 yard dumpster, choosing the right size will depend on a number of factors. First, you have to look at where the dumpster is going to be in your yard. If you need a 40, but only have room for a 20 yard one, you'll have to have the 20 yard dumpster emptied once and then replaced in your yard. While a 5 yard one is good for a room clean out or two, it's good to know that a 10 holds double the amount of stuff than a 5.

Choosing Based on the Stuff You Need to Throw Away

Take a good look at the amount of items you are going to be throwing away. If you are cleaning out an entire house, that's full of junk, you will probably need a 20 yard dumpster at the minimum. This is a popular size of dumpster to rent, and it's good for whole house clean outs, kitchen remodels, and backyard deck removals. The sizes you can rent are 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 yards, so you have options. If you have large pieces of furniture, go with the bigger, 20 yard dumpster to ensure that you only have to fill up the dumpster once.

Renovating a Small Room

A 10 yard dumpster should provide enough space when you are renovating a small room. This is large enough to hold old sheetrock, tiles and anything else that needs to get thrown away when prepping a small room to be renovated. If you are nervous that a 10 isn't going to be big enough, you can go with a 15 to be on the safe side.

What you want to avoid is getting a dumpster that is too small, unless you don't have the room for a larger one on your property. Finding out that the dumpster is too small after you have already filled it only means that you will spend more money on a second dumpster. Trying to save a little money by decreasing the size of your dumpster will usually end up costing you more money in the end.

Remember to talk with your dumpster company to see if there are any items that you are not allowed to throw away in the dumpster. And visit sites like for more information.
