Why is a Dumpster Rental Important while Remodeling a Kitchen?

Kitchen remodels can be a bit overwhelming, but don't let the debris stress you out! One of the best ways to make the clean-up process easier is to rent a dumpster. But, what size dumpster do you need? Don't worry, we're here to help!

In this blog post, we'll break down the factors that the best kitchen remodeling contractor use to determine the size of the dumpster you need for your kitchen demo and remodel, give you some tips on how to estimate the amount of debris, and provide guidelines for the most common sizes of dumpsters available for rent.

Determining the size of the dumpster

When it comes to determining the size of the dumpster, there are a few things to consider:

  1. The size of your kitchen: The bigger the kitchen, the more debris it will generate.
  2. The scope of your demo and remodel project: A full gut job will generate more debris than a simple cosmetic update.
  3. The amount of debris that will be generated: This can be estimated by taking into account the number and size of cabinets, appliances, countertops, and flooring that will be removed, as well as any additional debris such as packaging or construction materials.

Choosing the dumpster 

As a general guideline, a 10-yard dumpster is perfect for small kitchen remodels or single-room remodels. It can hold up to 2-3 tons of debris. A 20-yard dumpster is great for most kitchen remodels and can hold up to 4-6 tons of debris. And a 30-yard dumpster is ideal for larger kitchen remodels or for those who are also working on other rooms in the house, it can hold up to 6-8 tons of debris.

Renting the dumpster

When it comes to renting a dumpster, the process is pretty straightforward.

  • Most dumpster rental companies will just need your name, address, phone number, and a description of your project. Some may also require a deposit, credit card, or other forms of payment.
  • The rental period typically covers 7-14 days, but additional days will result in additional charges. It's essential to have a plan for the dumpster, such as a specific date for pickup and delivery, as well as a plan for the debris once it's removed from the dumpster.
  • Lastly, when choosing a reputable dumpster rental company, make sure they're licensed and insured. Read reviews and ask for references from previous customers. This will give you an idea of the level of service and the quality of the dumpsters that the company provides.

Final Thoughts

Keep in mind, the information we’ve given above are just general guidelines and the size of the dumpster may vary depending on your specific project. To make sure you're choosing the right size dumpster for your kitchen demo and remodel, we recommend consulting with a dumpster rental company to get a more accurate estimate of the amount of debris that will be generated. So don't let debris stress you out, let a dumpster do the heavy lifting for you. Happy remodeling!
