Rent a Dumpster for Your Auto Repair Shop
People rely on auto repair shops for maintenance and service repairs on their vehicles. Some auto repair shops specialize in certain parts such as tires, transmissions, mufflers and brakes -- just to name a few. But regardless of your specific specialty, there will always be a lot of leftover waste once you're done repairing someone's car. The best way to handle your waste is to use a commercial dumpster. Budget Dumpster can be your number one source for a cheap dumpster rental!
Should I Rent a 2 yard or 4 yard for My Auto Repair Shop?
That's a trick question because no matter which one you choose you will be satisfied! You may ask yourself, is there really a difference between the two commercial sizes? We're here to clear that up for you.
Our 2 yard commercial dumpster is our smallest dumpster that is the most popular among companies that don't produce a high waste stream. It can hold between 600 to 800 lbs. of waste which is equivalent of a one ton pickup truck. You don?t have to worry about placement with this commercial dumpster. It has dimensions of 3 feet in length, 3 feet in height, and 6 feet in width. It's ideal for properties with limited space. Since this permanent dumpster is only 3 feet high, disposing of waste is easier than ever! This is by far the best space-saving and wallet-sparing option.
The 4 yard commercial dumpster is a little bit bigger. The dimensions are typically 5 feet high, 4 feet long and 6 feet wide. But, if you ask us, it's the perfect size. It's a great in-between size to accommodate your small-medium waste stream. The 4 yarder can hold between 800 to 1000 lbs. of waste which is equivalent to two pickup trucks worth of waste. It can even handle the occasional bulky materials you may accumulate over a period of time. Even though it's a size bigger than the 2 yarder, it can be easily placed and emptied.
Once you decide which size is best for your auto repair shop, go ahead and request a quote. Our customer service representatives would love to give you all of the information for a proper waste removal!
What Items Are Prohibited in Commercial Dumpsters?
Even though we accept almost any kind of waste in our commercial dumpsters, you should be aware of the materials we prohibit.
Auto shops generate a lot of hazardous waste. One example is oil or any general industrial lubricants. Used oil can be recycled through a number of nationwide retailers. So, instead of throwing oil in a permanent dumpster, please consider recycling it. We also prohibit car batteries because of their lead-acid composition. The high levels of lead and other heavy metals cannot be mixed with other wastes. Depending on what your auto shop specializes in, paint can be a common material found in your shop. Unfortunately, we prohibit any paints or lacquers in our permanent dumpsters. They can potentially contain harmful elements such as lead and mercury. There's also a chance of damaging or permanently staining garbage trucks or dumpsters.
Please be aware: if you mix a nonhazardous material with a hazardous material, the mixture may become hazardous.
We've listed only a few of our prohibited items that are typically discarded by auto shops above. View our full list of prohibited items.
How Often Will Trash Be Collected from My Auto Repair Shop?
We try to meet the different needs of each of our customers. By doing so, we offer flexible commercial dumpster pickup schedules. We recommend a weekly pickup for auto repair shops, however, we'll work with you to set the best schedule for your shop.
