Dumpster Rental Tips

Dumpsters for Rent

Estimating the volume of junk or debris

It’s difficult to estimate the amount of junk or debris you’ll have for a particular project, such as a roofing job or household cleanout. Your best source of information in this case is your dumpster rental company. They have experience in dealing with a wide variety and quantities of waste and debris. They can help you choose the ideal container size with relatively precise accuracy.

If you choose to estimate the amount of debris yourself, you can measure it and convert it to cubic yards. One cubic yard is equal to a 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. pile of debris. That’s about the volume of a standard kitchen stove.

Estimating the weight of a load is extremely difficult, and so it’s best to consult your dumpster provider to determine if your load is likely under the weight allowance for a particular container size.

How many days is the rental period?

One week is a standard rental period, although it’s not uncommon to find some dumpster rental companies offering 14-day rentals included in the price. Some may even charge a daily fee for rental, which could end up being a better deal in cases where you only need the container on site for a day or two.

If you need a dumpster for longer than the rental period, you can request it for longer and pay a “late fee” of typically $5 or $10 per day. Many rental companies cap the maximum length of the rental due to inventory issues. To have a debris box picked up prior to the end of the rental period, simply call the company and request a pick-up.

5 common types of dumpsters

Commercial dumpsters – Used for weekly/monthly trash hauling services at businesses. Not for temporary use.

Roll-off containers – Dumpsters you rent for temporary use at home, construction sites or commercial cleanups.

Trailer dumpsters – 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.

Bag-style containers – “Bagster” and similar type of compact containers ranging from 1 cubic yard to 3 cubic yards, generally.

"Lowboy" dumpsters – Roll-off dumpsters with low sides, ideal for loading heavy materials, such as dirt, concrete or masonry.

Average Dumpster Rental Costs

Dumpster prices for Alabama can fluctuate significantly based on how much weight is included in the price and depending on where you are in the state. For the Birmingham metro area:

  • 10 to 12 yard dumpsters start at around $275 with adequate weight included
  • 20 yard dumpsters start around $345 with adequate weight included

Renting from local haulers is the best way to go. Not only are the often the most fairly priced option, but they also have more personalized customer service. Beware of out-of-state brokers offering artificially low rates with very low weight limits—you'll usually end up paying more. Some of these companies pretend to be local and "budget," but they are neither.

Cost to rent a dumpster in Alabama

The cost of renting a dumpster in Alabama varies greatly depending upon the location (city), supply/demand, size of the container, type of debris, rental duration, and several other factors.

The best way to get an accurate picture of how much a dumpster costs in your area is to contact two or more local rental providers to request a free quote.

Based on several years of data collected by HometownDumpsterRental.com, we have determined the national average cost to rent a dumpster are as follows:

  • 10 yards - $300-$360*
  • 20 yards - $380-$456*
  • 30 yards - $440-$528*
  • 40 yards - $490-$588

*The costs in Alabama may be higher or lower than these averages. The exact cost will vary based on location, type of debris and hauler. Check with local dumpster rental haulers to get an exact quote.

  • 20 yard - $260

  • 40 yard - $415

Dumpster costs vary based on the city/metro you reside, as well as the other factors previously mentioned.

On the flip side, slow times of the year may net you a better deal on a dumpster.

Other relatively common container sizes include 8, 12 and 15 yarders. Still other container sizes are also sometimes available. Trailer dumpsters are a roll-off dumpster alternative that work great for a wide range of situations.

Where can I access state laws pertaining to waste disposal and environmental rules?

Anytime you haul waste yourself to a landfill or recycling facility, be sure to check local and state rules regarding solid waste transportation.

If you rent a dumpster for a renovation, construction, demolition or clean-out project, your dumpster rental company can help ensure you abide by all local and state laws.

You can access the Alabama environmental regulations and laws by visiting the Alabama Department of Environmental Management website.
