- Spring cleaning projects
- Decluttering a house before a move (or just because it needs it)
- Yard waste removal
- Roofing replacement or repair projects*
- Kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects*
- Replacing windows or siding*
- New construction*
* Construction and demolition debris materials should be disposed of at a
Construction & Demolition Debris Landfill
Renting a dumpster isn’t too difficult, but it can be intimidating for the first time renter. You can make an appointment for delivery in a matter of minutes, but in order to get the most out of your dumpster experience without overpaying, you’ll want to be privy to a few things first.
How are roll-off containers designed?
Roll-off containers (dumpsters) have swinging doors on one side, and feet or rollers on the bottom. The doors make loading bulky, heavy items easy. The feet should be placed on wooden planks to protect your driveway or street.
Choose the right dumpster size.
Dumpsters come in a size range of sizes and are measured in cubic yards, which indicate the container’s capacity.
Know the dumpster rental terms and conditions.
Make sure to know your rental terms ahead of beginning your project or clean-up.
- Is the dumpster company automatically coming to pick-up the dumpster at the end of the rental period?
Some dumpster rental companies will automatically come pick up at the end of your rental, but it is best practice to call the company as soon as you are done with your dumpster.
- What can or cannot put in the dumpster?
Each hauling company works a little differently, and they have different rules.
- How much weight is included in the rental price?
Some dumpster rental companies include a specific amount of weight in their dumpster charge and some charge for a dumpster rental cost plus the weight of the materials you place inside the container. Make sure to ask how your dumpster company charges.
Load Your Dumpster
The company you hire will set up your dumpster so the doors can be opened all the way back. This makes for easier, more efficient loading.
Never put these things in your dumpster!
