When getting rid of trash generated from home renovations or even from a spring cleaning, your household could benefit greatly from renting roll off dumpsters.

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.
