A single layer of asphalt roofing shingles on a small house - 1500 square foot roof (150 squares) would require a 10 yard dumpster. Roofs up to 3000 square foot (300 squares) would need a 20 yard dumpster.

If multiple layers need to be removed, multiply the size needed by the number of layers.

For example, a 3000 square foot roof with 2 layers to be removed would need:

20 yards x 2 = 40 yard dumpster.

junk removal, dumpster rentalYou had a great holiday season!  Your household received plenty of gifts.  You purchased that new set of candy cane lights for the driveway and those cute dishes for your family’s holiday dinner.  Now the holidays are over and you have to find a place to put everything away until next year.  The trouble is your house is filled to the rafters with stuff already.  So it’s time to get rid of some of your old stuff to make way for the new.

How to dispose of your old stuff will depend on what it is?  Did you get a new refrigerator for Christmas?  Getting rid of the old one will take more than a garbage can.  How about those old, broken bicycles that you never fixed or that cracked dining table?  Again, these are too big for a standard garbage...

If you’ve purchased a historic house, it’s probably because of the charm of its original features and the potential you see to make it a showcase home. But owners of historic buildings face different challenges when making renovations than owners of ordinary homes or commercial spaces.

If the building is a nationally significant one – perhaps a rare survivor of the work of a master architect or craftsman, or a place where a historically significant event took place – it may be a National Historic Landmark, designated for their “exceptional significance in American history,” or otherwise listed in the National Register of historic buildings. Owners of these buildings are often restricted to preservation or restoration of their  home – retaining the building’s original fabric through conservation, maintenance and repair. Any demolition work done in renovating the building may be restricted to removing additions and materials from other time periods, with the aim of returning the building closer to its original state.
