Tips To Prevent Dumpster Vandalism

You are most likely responsible for the condition of the dumpster you have rented for your business. This is why it's important that you protect it from damage. Vandals sometimes target dumpsters, for everything from target practice to graffiti marks. The following tips can help you protect your dumpster.

Tip #1: Keep the lid locked and the area clean

A dumpster that is sealed and well kept doesn't draw as much attention as one that is left open and messy. Make sure the area around the dumpster is kept clean and that all trash is stowed inside. Don't stack wooden pallets or any other tempting items by the dumpster. It's also important to keep the lid closed and locked. Dumpster fires are a real problem in some areas, so you don't want to provide any temptation to a vandal to set your dumpster alight.

Tip #2: Install a protective fence

Some municipalities require that all dumpsters be placed inside a fence, but it's a good idea to do so even if it isn't required. A closed and locked fence protects the dumpster from vandals completely. If they do decide to cause trouble, it will be to the fence instead of the rented dumpster. The key is to make sure the gate is kept locked. Make sure your employees understand that it can't be left open for any reason.

Tip #3: Keep the area well lit

Most vandals prefer to work under cover of darkness. Place an outdoor light near the dumpster. You can use a light on a timer so it is on from dusk to dawn, or you can opt for a motion controlled light. Lighting is especially important if your dumpster is tucked away behind a building or in another hard-to-see area. If problems persist, you may want to also consider the installation of a security camera. Sometimes, simply posting a security sign is sufficient to scare off would-be vandals.

Tip #4: Fix damage quickly

One act of vandalism often attracts more. If your dumpster is targeted, make sure you repair the damage quickly. Repaint the dumpster or the fence if it is tagged. Replace lids or locks if they are broken. By staying on top of any acts of vandalism, you can discourage future vandals from attacking your dumpster.
