Rent A Dumpster Bin Without Damaging Your Driveway

The best way to protect your driveway from damage caused by a dumpster bin is to use common sense and smart planning. While using a roll-off dumpster will be more convenient than other methods, it requires extra precautions as it is much larger than the typical trash can and poses a higher risk of damage if placed incorrectly.

Dumpsters should always be placed on a hard, flat surface; if you don’t have one, you should pressure wash your driveway before using the dumpster bin. This will help ensure that its weight is distributed evenly across your driveway and will also help prevent cracks in the pavement. By following the steps below, you can easily avoid costly repair costs due to careless placement of a dumpster on your property.

Using The Plywood Pieces

Using plywood pieces as a surface for the roll off dumpster is an effective, easy method to ensure that you minimize the damage and wear on your driveway. The plywood sheets are relatively cheap to buy, can be sized to fit any driveway, and will restore the surface when you move the dumpster bin again. When used properly, your driveway will be protected and you won’t have to worry about any unnecessary wear.

A plywood board is available at most home improvement or hardware stores. It is easy to cut a plywood board to the size you want. The boards are also lightweight and can be easily handled by two people. Using plywood rather than asphalt shingles will help; it will also protect your driveway from sinking in when the dumpster is removed.

Just Don’t Through Your Trash in the Dumpster Bin

Instead of throwing your waste haphazardly into the dumpster, focus on evenly distributing your waste inside the container. This will help keep the dumpster balanced and protected from damage.

A good tip for anyone looking to rent a roll-off dumpster is to take a moment and lay out your waste. Spread it across the body of the dumpster bin, then do your best to spread it evenly before placing a lid on the dumpster. That way, you can make sure that your trash is placed in an orderly manner that’s easy for you to access when you’re ready to remove it later. It also prevents potential damage or issues with the integrity of the dumpster itself – things you’d definitely want to avoid. You won’t ever be sorry you took a long moment at the start of your rental period to lay out your trash properly.

Look for Leaks & Damages

Whether you’re using a dumpster bin for your roofing project or for another type of job, it’s important to know what to look for in a dumpster. First, you should always make sure that the dumpster is structurally sound, and second, you should inspect the dumpster to make sure it doesn’t have any leaks. If you find any holes or cracks in the dumpster, be sure to immediately notify your professional before he or she begins loading the dumpster. And if possible (when renting a dumpster in Vancouver), it’s best to request a replacement rather than continue to use a potentially unsafe dumpster bin.

Don’t Overfill The Dumpster Bin

It’s important to note that it doesn’t cost more to fill up a larger dumpster bin. However, it will cause damage to your driveway if the dumpster is too heavy. Over-filling can also result in spillage and other messy situations, depending on the type of materials you’re putting in the dumpster. Ultimately, be sure to measure the dimensions of your dumpster, and keep an eye on your weight limit. A lighter load makes for a safer load.

Overfilling your dumpster bin is generally a bad idea, both for your driveway (as we’ve discussed) and for the safety of the workers who have to transport and empty your dumpster. If you’re worried about finding enough space inside the dumpster, you can always rent part of a larger unit rather than a smaller one.


Whether you’re doing a full-scale remodel or a small project, protecting your driveway will help you avoid costly problems down the road. Hire a professional dumpster rental company to take care of your project site waste and keep your driveway and street clean for visitors.
