If you’re a property manager or landlord who provides trash removal services for your tenants, you have choices to make about the best way to accomplish this. In this article, we’re going to discuss rolling containers, residential dumpsters, and recycling services, so you can make informed choices about what you really need.
Rolling Containers – Ideal for Single Family Units
A rolling container is the typical ‘garbage can’ you see out for curbside collection. These units are made of durable materials, designed to endure typical wear and tear while keeping trash neatly contained. Between 5-7 average sized trash bags fit in a rolling container. This amount is typical for a family of four or less to generate in a week. If you have four or fewer rental units at an address, rolling containers are the most likely option for trash removal.
Residential Dumpsters – For Multi-Family Dwellings and Commercial Properties
To contain costs and minimize the number of trash collection containers you have on your property, renting a dumpster makes sense. If you have more than four units in a property, or you’re renting out commercial spaces, using a dumpster for trash collection is the way to go. Dumpsters are available in 6 yard size – great if space is an issue! – as well as 10 yard. Not sure what you need? Give us a call – we’d be happy to help you out.
Obviously, everyone wants to do their part to help the planet. Residential recycling bins are available for your tenants to recycle glass, cardboard, newspaper and junk mail, and select plastic containers.
Choosing a Local Trash Company to Serve Your Rental Units
When choosing a trash company to serve your rental units, the best bet is to go with a local company with a reputation for reliable, professional service. The reputation and value of your property depends upon it being clean and well-maintained. Dependable, timely trash collection services play a key role in making this happen.
