It’s nearly 3am and I can’t sleep because I’m thinking about dumpsters! Seriously. . . isn’t this something I can think about in the morning? After I’ve slept. This is the stuff that drives me insane. So what kind of dumpster should I get? 10 yard, 12 yard, 20 yard? How does renting a dumpster compare with taking stuff to the dump? What does an actual 12 yard dumpster look like and will it suit my purposes?
They tell me that here in Westbrook, one must pay $50 a load (one load = one pick-up truck) at the dump. This price seems ridiculous. My garbage guy tells me that a 12 yard dumpster is the equalivent of three pickup trucks worth and comes at the price of $333. The price of having a lovely dumpster, readily accessible for 2 weeks, parked in my front yard (while attempting to sell my house) unfortunately seems the way to go. I don’t own a truck and my thinking is that it will be heaps (no pun intended) easier for me to just squish as much stuff as possible day by day into a dumpster and then have them take it away!
Decision made. Now let’s get some sleep.
