Lehigh County, in the valley of the same name, is humid through much of the year, although winter and fall can be relatively dry compared to the muggy summers. Dumpsters are commonly used in Lehigh County throughout the year, although snowfall in more severe winters can often outdoor activities. As a result of this, dumpster rental tends to see a spike in the warmer months and following snowstorms, when residents of Lehigh County get out and about to do yard work, clearing the debris from in and around their homes. Dumpsters themselves are a relatively simple technology – when you think about it, a dumpster is just a gigantic bin – but how the dumpsters interact with the trucks designed specifically to empty and transport them is a truly ingenious innovation. Smaller dumpsters, below twenty yards, often have spaces on their sides to allow a dumpster truck to “grab” the bin and empty its contents into the tray on the bed of the truck. These front-loading dumpsters are fairly common for household and small-scale industrial application throughout the world. However, the strength and power required to lift a larger industrial dumpster necessitates a different design. The size of the truck needed to lift a forty yard dumpster full of bricks and rock would be thoroughly impractical, which is why construction sites and factories often house roll-off dumpsters. As the name suggests, these roll on and off the back of the specialized truck, making transfer easier and allowing for the removal of higher volumes of heavier waste. Roll-off dumpsters are even available in smaller sizes for ease of use, and using an assortment of different sizes to customize your dumpster use is a popular choice for many industrial cleanouts, demolition projects and redevelopments. Some companies, for example, will separate bricks and heavy debris from lighter objects such as paper and glass, and place the different weights in different dumpsters, allowing for easy management of tonnage and waste disposal.
