Renting a dumpster gives you added safety. As your project is going on, you can dispose of waste as you go. At the end of each day that you are working on your home project, clean up the mess, sweep up any nails or splintered wood, dust, etc. and throw it in your rented dumpster. The worry of stepping on something sharp or tripping over something is no longer a worry.
When you rent a dumpster, you are creating efficiency in your project. You will find that it will make your life so much simpler while you clean up the mess. The beauty is that there is no pile of waste to clean at the end or daily drives to the dump. You can clean as you go and when you are done, the waste is hauled off for you!
