Tips for Renting a Dumpster

Does Size Matter? That all depends on the context and with dumpsters, you can't really ever go too big. As one of the largest mistakes when ordering a dumpster for the first time, people can overestimate and even underestimate the amount of waste a project will produce. So What Size do I choose?
10 yard dumpster charlotte nc
The 10-yard dumpster
is ideal for small remodeling projects like remodeling a single bathroom or medium cleanouts like a deck that's 300 square feet or a shingle roofing removal job that's under 1,500 square feet. These hold 10 cubic yards of material or about 3 pickup trucks.
20 yard roll off dumpster rental
The 20-yard dumpster is perfect for medium-sized remodeling projects or for major cleanouts such as an entire house carpet removal for a large home, or a shingle roofing job over 1,500 square feet. They hold 20 cubic yards of material or about 6 pickup trucks.
30 yard roll off dumpster rental
The 30-yard dumpster is normally used more for commercial purposes, a major home addition, new construction sites or long rental periods. They hold 30 cubic yards of material or about 9 pickup trucks.
40 yard roll off dumpster rental
The 40-yard dumpster is the largest size and more commonly used for commercial and industrial purposes but is great for the entire window or siding replacement jobs. They hold 40 cubic yards of material or about 12 pickup trucks.

  1. Know Your Trash An important thing to note and bring up when you call to rent a dumpster is telling us what type of waste you will be using the rental for. Based on the location, amount, and laws that govern how certain types of waste should be handled in your state, we don't want you getting additional charges for accidentally mixing materials or putting prohibited items in the mix. Another thing to note is the weight, as going over the weight allowance is enforced by the landfill where the waste is taken for disposal.
  2. Don't Dump that It is against the law to dispose of hazardous waste. Such waste includes chemical products, oil filters, herbicides, pesticides, radioactive materials, solvents, paint, flammable liquids, partially filled aerosol cans, propane tanks, motor oil, transmission oil, lubrication/hydraulic oil, contaminated oils, lead paint chips, tires, batteries, fluorescent tubes, railroad ties, medical waste, asbestos, dead animals, sealed barrels/cylinders. The extent of waste laws does vary state to state but these are the general items that are never allowed. Save money and dump it right. If you're also not sure if your waste is acceptable, give us a call.
  3. Call Us for the Best price now, this last tip is crucial. But why? You can always call around and shop for the best price but are you calling everyone? Our dedicated team of experts are always on the phone comparing our prices and seeing how much more expensive everyone else is. And If there's a lower price, let us know. We strive on having the most affordable, competitive pricing on rentals and with price changes almost every day varying from area to area we can't always catch them all but we will take care of you.
