If you are a small business owner, you may wonder if renting a dumpster is worth the cost. However, there are multiple advantages of renting a dumpster. Here are a few of them:

Tax Savings

Some states offer tax benefits for organizations that recycle. Thus, if your company rents a dumpster and participates in the dumpster provider's recycling services, your business is likely to save money on taxes. In some cases, the tax benefit that your company incurs  may  be enough to cover the cost of  your dumpster rental fees.


Having a dumpster that is designated solely for the use of your organization can help eliminate the inconvenience of having to share a dumpster unit with another business. In addition, your business will have more space for  waste disposal.

Many dumpster providers offer containers in various sizes. You can select the size that best accommodates the amount of waste that your business produces. Still, it is best to overestimate your waste production. Trying to store waste until the dumpster has been emptied or placing trash around the dumpster unit in hopes that the garbage service will discard it properly can lead to problems.


Renting a dumpster can make clean up easy. Your commercial space will look much less inviting if there is litter on the property. Still, regular cleanup can be difficult if there is no designated dumpster for the collected waste. Having a large dumpster that can accommodate many different types of waste,  including outdoor trash, old office equipment, broken furniture and large boxes, can make it much easier to complete necessary workplace cleaning duties quickly and efficiently.

No Need to Purchase a Unit

If your company decides to purchase a dumpster, they can expect to pay a hefty upfront cost. However, by renting the dumpster, your company can use the trash container without depleting a large amount of company funds up front.  In addition, your company will not be responsible for the pickup and placement of the unit.

Standardized Units

When you rent a dumpster for your business, you will know that the dumpster meets necessary standards and can be readily emptied by waste collection agencies.

For more information about renting a dumpster, contact a dumpster rental facility in your area. The rental company representative can advise of available dumpster sizes and their associated rental costs. Be sure to advise the representative if you would like to participate in recycling services.
