5 common types of dumpsters and how they are priced

Commercial dumpsters – Used for weekly/monthly trash hauling services at businesses, like restaurants and gas stations. These "front load" containers are generally not for temporary use and are priced by the number of pickups during the week or month.

Roll-off dumpsters – "Open top" containers you rent for temporary use at home, construction sites or commercial cleanups.  Pricing method varies by company, but generally involves a flat fee with a set amount of weight included in the price.  Additional weight costs more.

Dump trailers – An alternative to roll-off dumpsters used by some rental providers. It offers the advantage of being on wheels, which decreases the risk of damage to your driveway.  Priced similar to roll off dumpsters.

Dumpster bags – Large 3 cubic yard bags are delivered or purchased locally and picked up by the provider when complete.  For small amounts of debris.  Purchase the bag (generally $30 - $40) and pay the hauler for the pickup (frequently in the $149 to $199 range).

Lowboys – Dumpsters with very low sides, ideal for loading heavy materials such as dirt, concrete or masonry.  These are often required to be "clean" loads in order to get the best pricing.  By clean, we mean only one type of debris.  For example, a load of clean concrete can be taken to the concrete recycler rather than the landfill for a much lower disposal fee.  Concrete recycling facilities do not accept "dirty" loads of mixed debris.

What are the most common roll-off dumpster sizes?
