You might never give a second thought to trash collection services other than to place your trash on the end of your driveway on the appropriate day. My name is Lisa, and I want to tell you why you should think about your local sanitation and what happens to your trash after the garbage workers have taken it away. Did you know that trash that is not appropriately collected can cause health problems in your community? It can also damage the environment and the quality of your water and air. Educate yourself about what happens to the trash in your community so you can effectively fight for the health of your family and your planet.

Vacant lots that are overflowing with trash and debris not only cause home values to plummet, they pose a safety hazard to local children and pets as well. It's apparent that eyesore areas like these need to be cleaned up, but paying cleaning companies to come in and take over is costly. What's a town to do? Organize a community cleanup -- that's what! When you involve the community in your project, the expenses involved are minimal -- renting a commercial-sized dumpster, printing and distributing flyers, and finding a way to reward participants afterward are basically all you'll need.

Renting a roll-off dumpster can be a great way to get rid of the unwanted trash around your home. You have the option of renting an 8,10,15, 20, 30, or 40 yard container for your needs. The number of yards refers to the square yardage within the dumpster itself. Many residential customers choose to use 8 yard dumpsters that are 10 feet by 8 feet with a height of 3.5 feet. The dumpster will be removed from your property and emptied once you are done with it.
