When you own a business, it is important that you are able to have the trash hauled away on a regular basis to ensure that there are no foul smells being created by the trash on hot summer days. When you rent a dumpster from a dumpster rental company, it is your responsibility to keep people from using it who should not be using it and to keep animals from climbing into it. The guide below walks you through a few ideas for how to keep your dumpster secure.
Build a Fence Around the Dumpster
A huge problem that comes with renting a dumpster is that someone people will try to throw their personal trash into the dumpster rather than taking it to the local dump or paying to have a trash service take their trash away for them. When this happens, your dumpster will fill up sooner and you will have to pay to have it dumped more often. To keep people from gaining access to your dumpster who should not have access to it, consider building a fence around it. The fence will have doors so you and your employees can easily access the dumpster, but it will make it more difficult for other people to access it.
Consider Adding a Lock to the Dumpster
There are small doors on the sides of the dumpster and a latch on the top of the dumpster. You can place small locks on the doors of the dumpster so that people and animals cannot open them. The top of the dumpster is somewhat heavy and will be difficult for someone or an animal to lift on their own.
Consider Adding Security Cameras
If you feel that you are still having issues with the dumpster after taking the steps listed above, post signs on the fence to the dumpster that states that the dumpster is for private use only and that disposing of trash in the dumpster will be considered trespassing. Then install security cameras that can catch people throwing the items away. You can then contact the police for people trespassing on your property when they should not be and the police can arrest them on the spot if they see them doing it in the future.
You do not want people to have easy access to your business's dumpster because you do not want to be responsible for what people throw away, as well. If something in the dumpster catches on fire, for example, you could be responsible for paying for the repairs or replacement of that dumpster.
