Dumpster rental costs in Alaska

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

Based on several years of data collected by, 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 Alaska 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.

Closer to home, get an idea of what other Alaska residents are paying for their dumpster rental:

  • 10 yard - $247
  • 20 yard - $355

Dumpster costs vary based on the city/metro you reside, as well as the other factors previously mentioned. For example, during the busy dumpster rental months (e.g., spring), containers are in limited supply, so costs may be slightly higher during this time. On the flip side, slow times of the year may net you a better deal on a dumpster.

Most common roll-off container sizes

Roll-off dumpster sizes vary, but the most common are:

  • 10 yard: 12 ft. x 8 ft. x 3.5 ft. (LxWxH)
  • 20 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 4 ft. (LxWxH)
  • 30 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 6 ft. (LxWxH)
  • 40 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 8 ft. (LxWxH)

The container sizes in your area may vary based on what the dumpster rental company carries, as well as the availability of specific containers. If you can’t find the container size you’re looking for, check with a different rental company near you.

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.
