PRO Hauling can help you in this difficult time

estate cleaning pennsylvania Losing a loved one is a time of grief and stress. Cleaning out their home exacerbates both those emotions.

PRO Hauling is here to make that cleaning-out process less stressful with our easy dumpster rental services. Our team has helped many of your Tunkhannock area neighbors with this, and we can put our experience to work for you and your family.

We start with a discussion of what you’ll be needing and the scope of the cleaning out, and give you a FREE, no-obligation quote. PRO Hauling offers a wide range of dumpster sizes so you’ll have the right one for your project.

6 tips for estate cleaning-out

While this will be a difficult process, the cleaning out can be made easier and less stressful in several ways. Here are some important tips for you.

  1. Secure the home immediately. Sadly, there are people in the world who see your loss as an opportunity for their gain. Notify your local police about the death so they know to keep an eye out for burglars. Change the locks and the security system passcode right away, as you don’t know who may have keys to the house or the passcode.
  2. Gather essential paperwork. Ideally, your loved one had their paperwork organized. That may not be the case, so you need to look for that before you start emptying the house. Papers you need include the will, power of attorney, bank and credit card statements, tax returns and receipts, military records, 401K and pension records, passports and other ID, utility statements, property deeds and titles, car titles and registration, mortgage deed if there was a mortgage on the house, lease agreement if your loved one lived in a rental, and stocks and bond certificates.
  3. Decide how to tackle the work. Are staring at the house and the accumulated possessions of someone’s lifetime and feeling like a tsunami is coming your way? Take a deep breath and break down the job into bite-size chunks. You can create projects based on objects, such as the furniture or clothing, or go room by room, based on what works better for you, the way you work, and your schedule.
  4. Go on a treasure hunt. Are there items you or someone else know they want, such as a piece of art, a quilt made by a great-grandparent, or the china set brought out for every holiday and celebration? Find those first and either take them out of the home or put them in a designated space such as one empty room so they don’t accidentally get pitched.
  5. Focus on the easy stuff first. Arrange to get the things to be kept or items for donation such as clothing or furniture out of the house first. Put the stuff you know that is trash in the dumpster. These will make later sorting and purging easier.
  6. Rent a storage unit. If you are on a time crunch because the house is going on the market quickly, a small storage unit can be used for family mementos and other items you want more time to carefully go over and distribute.

Make clearing out a loved one’s home less stressful with our dumpster rental services. Contact us today to learn more about what PRO Hauling offers.

Benefits of commercial dumpsters on construction sites

Renting a commercial dumpster from PRO Hauling makes managing your construction project easier because we take some work off your to-do list.

Using PRO Hauling’s dumpster services also keeps your workplace cleaner and safer. Allowing waste and debris to accumulate makes your worksite more difficult and potentially dangerous to navigate and work in. There are very often pieces of waste or debris that are heavy and/or sharp. Also, paper waste and other items may be combustible, so leaving them out can be a potential fire hazard.

The scale of your project. Is this a single-home construction project, a commercial construction project, or a residential development project? We’ll go over the details of what you’ll be doing so you can be assured that you’ll always have dumpsters on-site and ready to be filled.

What you will be putting in the dumpster. Some waste is lighter than others. For example, if you are disposing of gravel, fill, and other yard waste, these can be heavy. You will need to use a smaller dumpster so it can be safely hauled away.

What size space you have for a dumpster. You may have a lot of stuff to put in a dumpsters, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you can just rent a bigger dumpster for fewer pickups. That’s especially true if your project space has a lot of vehicles and equipment on the site. You may need a smaller dumpster picked up more frequently.

What you cannot put into a dumpster. This is where PRO Hauling’s experience comes in handy. There are many items we cannot haul, such as paint, anything containing gasoline, and chemicals such as asbestos, fertilizers, and R-22 refrigerant.

10-yard dumpster. If you have a small project, such as cleaning an attic or basement, this size is perfect. If your project involves disposing of lots of heavier debris like concrete or bricks, then you should use this size.

PRO Hauling can help you tackle your yard projects!

yardwaste pennsylvania This time of year, people here in Pennsylvania are busy getting their yards ready for winter and finishing up outdoor projects before the snow flies and the ground freezes.

While some towns may do leaf pick-up for your raked leaves, you are on your own when it comes to other yard waste such as branches, dirt, and sod.

Residential dumpster rental from PRO Hauling for the yard waste from your outdoor projects makes sense because you save time and work more efficiently!

One big advantage dumpsters have over hauling the waste yourself is that dumpsters are, well, big. Think about how long it takes to get to and from your local yard waste dump site, plus the time it takes to empty everything. Even if you have a pickup truck, you could be losing working time to make multiple trips a day, making the work longer and harder.

But when you rent a dumpster from PRO Hauling, your time is saved for actually getting work done! Instead of loading and schlepping the yard waste, you simply fill the dumpster, and we haul it away for you! We take yard waste such as grass clippings, leaves, twigs and branches, tree trunks, bricks, soil, pavers, landscaping stone, shrubbery, potted plants, natural mulch such as bark and rock, and more.

How to use a dumpster for yard waste

If you’ve never used a dumpster before, the experts at Pro Hauling are here to help!

We’ll walk you through the process of how we deliver and pick up dumpsters, and some best practice tips for loading them safely and efficiently.

Our dumpsters come with swing doors that make it easy to load your dumpster. Instead of having to lift and hoist your yard waste over the side, you can easily carry it in and use a wheelbarrow to load it. It’s faster, safer, and easier!

An important thing to consider is the weight of what you are putting in the dumpster. Excessive amounts of rock, soil, and concrete may make the dumpster too heavy to haul.

A 10-yard or 12-yard dumpster, for example, includes a weight of one ton of waste to be hauled in our billing. If you go over the allotted tonnage, your feel will be prorated at $90 for each additional ton.

That’s why it may be a good idea to balance out what you are putting in the dumpster. If you know you are going to have a lot of concrete and paving stones to remove, it may be cost-effective for you to mix those with lighter items such as branches, leaves, and soil, have it carted away, and get another dumpster for the rest. You can also upsize to a 15- or 20-yard dumpster, which has an allotted tonnage of two tons. We’ll help you choose the right dumpster size for your project.

While you are getting rid of yard waste, something you must not put in the dumpster is contaminated soil. Also, we do not accept pesticides or fertilizer.

10-yard dumpster

Our 10-yard dumpster is the smallest size we offer for rental. At 3 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 12 feet long, it can hold on average about four pickup trucks worth of waste. It is perfect for small projects, such as cleaning out an attic or basement. If you are disposing of heavier debris such as concrete or bricks, this is the size to use.

12-yard dumpster

Your project may be a little bigger, like clearing the basement and attic both at once, or renovating a single room. This dumpster is 3 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 12 feet long and may be the one for this kind of job. It can hold about five pickup trucks worth of waste.

15-yard dumpster

If you’re tackling a medium-size renovation like redoing your bathroom or primary suite, you’ll need a bigger dumpster to accommodate bulkier items. This dumpster measures 4 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 14 feet long and can hold approximately six pickup trucks worth of materials.

20-yard and 20-long dumpster

These two dumpsters hold the same amount of material, about eight pickup trucks worth. Which one you choose depends on your needs for the project and your available space for the dumpster. The 20-yard dumpster measures 5½ feet high, 8 feet wide, and 14 feet long. Some people prefer a shorter height, so the 20-long measures 4 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 23 feet long.

30-yard dumpster

Got a big job ahead of you? You may need this size dumpster. It’s designed for larger projects such as a kitchen renovation, a bathroom renovation, or a major house decluttering and cleanout ahead of moving. It measures 6 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 23 feet long. It can hold about 12 pickup trucks worth of material.

40-yard dumpster

This is the largest dumpster we rent. At 7½ feet high, 8 feet wide, and 23 feet long, it holds about 16 pickup trucks worth of stuff. We recommend this size dumpster for major projects, such as a major, multi-room home renovation or emptying out a home after a loved one has passed away or has moved into long-term care.

What’s the difference?

types of dumpsters pennsylvaniaYou may be wondering about this. A dumpster is a dumpster, right?


There are different types of dumpsters depending on their application, and whether they are for residential or commercial purposes. We’ll walk through the types of dumpsters and their uses with you here.

Residential dumpsters

As their name implies, residential dumpsters are used in residential settings.

PRO Hauling carries dumpsters in a wide range of dumpster sizes so we have the right one for your project. Whether you need a small dumpster for a home decluttering project, a medium one for a bathroom renovation, or a large one for emptying the home of a loved one who has passed away, we’ve got you covered.

The PRO Hauling dumpsters are ideal for residential projects. For starters, they are designed and sized to fit an average residential driveway. However, that design also allows them to provide greater volume in spite of the smaller footprint.

We have extensive experience serving residential customers and it shows in our responsive, courteous service. For starters, we place the dumpster on protective wooden boards, so your driveway is protected. We also clean up the driveway once your dumpster is removed.

Commercial dumpsters

When you think of commercial dumpsters, you most likely think of the ones outside local businesses like restaurants that are designed for regular emptying by waste management companies. They often come with lids, as well as wheels so they can easily be moved around.

There are two kinds of those commercial dumpsters.

Front load dumpsters. As the name suggests, A front load garbage container is emptied into a waste removal truck from the front. It usually has a sloped top to enable trash to be dropped in. The container also has openings on each side for a waste truck to push its prongs and raise the dumpster. Front load dumpsters, which can contain up to eight cubic yards of waste, are a useful tool for daily waste management because of their compact design and slanted front that makes loading easy.

Rear load dumpsters. A rear load dumpster has a slanted back and extending poles. The hinge-and-winch system is used to dump its contents into a truck. Unlike an overhead movement, the truck manually hooks onto the rear load dumpster and pulls it upwards so that the trash will fall in. Rear load dumpsters are a little more difficult to empty waste into because of their height and the rear slope. They can, however, typically hold more waste and their taller design fits in narrower places.

PRO Hauling’s roll-off dumpsters are also used by local businesses in many applications. They’re staples at construction and renovation sites, as they come in a wide range of sizes. Also, office-based businesses like our dumpsters because they are easy to load, thanks to the hinged door, and are great for getting rid of large volumes of paper and other materials that are no longer needed.

PRO Hauling is your top choice for renting a dumpster

PRO Hauling makes renting a dumpster easy! All you have to do is contact us to get a quote, then we deliver the dumpster on the day you need it and pick it up when you ask us to.

Something else that makes renting a dumpster easy is knowing how to put it to good use for maximum efficiency. We’ve put together five tips to help you do that.

What’s allowed in your dumpster & what isn’t

If you have questions about what you’re throwing out and whether you can put it in one of our dumpsters, ask us. Due to safety regulations, there are several things that PRO Hauling cannot accept, such as:

Do some work before loading the dumpster

A little work before you start loading, or even before the dumpster arrives, can make the project go faster and easier for you.

Do you have cardboard boxes? Break them down. They’re easier to carry that way and take up less room in the dumpster.

Break down furniture for easier loading and so it’s more compact. For example, a bed can be broken down, so the headboard and footboard lie flat with the side rails on top of them.

Be strategic when loading

Another way to prepare is by knowing what should go in first. Lighter items such as flattened boxes, pillows, and furniture pieces should go in first. The heavier items on top will compact them so they take up less room.

Bag light items such as papers, Styrofoam, and fabrics so they don’t blow away. Put them on the bottom of the dumpster as well so they can be compacted by the heavier items on top.

Use the door

Our dumpsters have a door that swings open. It may seem like more fun to just toss stuff over the side into the dumpster, but using the door makes the job faster, easier, and safer.

Start at the back of the dumpster and work your way back towards the door. This also allows you to distribute the load more evenly for safe hauling.

Know when to stop

Our dumpsters have a maximum fill line. That line indicates the limit for safe hauling. Stop when or before you reach it. If the load goes past the fill line, we may not be able to haul it. You’ll lose time removing the items above the fill line. It’s easier and more efficient to let us know that you need another dumpster.

Important information to know ahead of your project

dumpster guide pennsylvaniaRenting a dumpster from PRO Hauling for residential projects like a renovation project or major de-cluttering or purge ahead of a move is a great idea.

Dumpsters are a cost-effective way of keeping your project moving forward. That’s because you don’t have to pause multiple times a day to deal with corralling waste and getting it to your local dump. You simply put the waste in the dumpster and keep working.

The experts at PRO Hauling will go over the scope of your project to make sure you have the right size of dumpster for the job. From there, we deliver the dumpster when you want it, setting it carefully on boards to protect your driveway. When you fill it, call us and we haul it away and replace it with another empty dumpster if you need it.

However, there are two important things you need to know when it comes to using your PRO Hauling dumpster: what can go into it and what can’t.

If you’re doing a renovation, a great many items can go in the dumpster, including plumbing fixtures, drywall, cabinetry, discarded wiring, piping, and more. If you are purging and have items such as furniture, small appliances like a coffeemaker or slow cooker, clothing, and toys that aren’t accepted for donation, those can go in the dumpster.

Items We Can Not Take

Let’s run down what we can’t haul away, for safety or regulatory reasons.



Household goods

Heavy items

Your municipality may have options for helping you get rid of some items, such as electronics, paints, and household chemicals. Check your local public works department website or get in touch with them for more information.
