Massachusetts Waste Disposal and Dumpster Rental Guide

How much does a roll off dumpster cost in the State of Massachusetts?


Dumpster rental prices vary from state to state, city to city, and hauler to hauler. Size of the dumpster, location, landfill fees, local taxes, and the amount of weight included in the price are the biggest factors affecting the cost of renting a dumpster in Massachusetts.


A typical 10 yard dumpster for rent in Massachusetts can range anywhere from $325 (including just 2,000 lbs) to $400 or above when more weight is included in the cost of the dumpster. An additional "per ton" charge applies after the weight limit is exceeded. 


What types of materials can I dispose of in my roll off dumpster?


Please recycle or reuse when possible, prior to disposing of debris in the dumpster.  


Most household waste, large items, and unrecyclable goods can be thrown into a dumpster for disposal.


When disposing of C&D (Construction & Demolition) debris, roll off dumpsters are ideal. However, prices may vary depending on type of material being disposed.  If you're disposing of construction and demolition debris in the dumpster, check to see if your hauler has C&D recycling facilities nearby that the debris can be delivered to, rather than the landfill.


The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection implemented its first waste ban in 1990. Massachusetts waste ban's mandate recycling of certain materials versus throwing them into the trash or a roll off dumpster to be taken to a landfill. More waste bans have been introduced and phased in over time.


Please check the list of items that are prohibited from disposal to be sure you are meeting the guidelines.  

Tips for renting a roll-off dumpster in Massachusetts

5 most common dumpster styles

Commercial dumpsters – Businesses use these dumpsters for weekly or monthly garbage hauling service. They are not for temporary use.

Roll-off dumpsters – These are the containers you rent for temporary uses, such as household cleanouts, roofing projects or commercial construction.

Trailer dumpsters – Used by some dumpster rental companies, these trailers are used similarly to roll-off dumpsters but are different in that they are on wheels – this offers the benefit of being easier on your driveway.

Bag-style containers – These small bins are made from durable fabrics and plastics and range in size from 1 to 3 cubic yards and hold less than 2 tons of debris. The “Bagster” container is one such dumpster.

Lowboy dumpsters – Similar to traditional roll-off dumpsters but with low sides, making it ideal for loading heavier debris, such as dirt, roofing material, concrete, tiles and masonry.

Information about dumpster rental weight limits and overage charges

Dumpster rental providers typically put a cap on the amount of weight you can load into a dumpster due to the fact it costs them more money to dump heavier loads at local landfills. This weight limit can range from 1 ton (2,000 lbs.) to 8 tons (16,000 lbs.) or more.

Overage fees typically range between $50 per ton and $100 per ton. For example, if the weight allowance is 2,000 lbs. and your load weighs in at 2,500 lbs., you’d owe an additional 1 ton of overage charges at the $50 to $100 rate, or whatever rate your dumpster rental agreement specifies.

TIP: Be particularly careful of going over the allotted weight limit when dealing with heavier debris, such as concrete, roofing shingles, dirt or masonry.
