Renting an appropriately sized waste container is an often overlooked aspect of any medium to large sized residential or commercial renovation project. Given the fact that improper removal of industrial waste can cost you quite a bit in fees and inconvenience, finding the right size and type of dumpster can be an important step to expedite the renovation process.
