How to reduce costs when renting a roll-off container

As with any purchase, informed shoppers get the best deal. That’s certainly the case when it comes to dumpster rentals. So, here are a few tips that help you become a more informed customer when shopping for the best deal on dumpster rentals:

  1. Call at least two roll-off container rental companies for quotes. This ensures you’re getting the best deal. You can even barter for a better deal by using one quote as leverage against the other.
  2. Avoid overage charges by keeping heavy debris at a minimum (e.g., dirt, concrete, brick, etc.). Likewise, avoid late fees by calling and having the dumpster rental provider pick up the container at the agreed upon date.
  3. When on the fence about which bin size to choose, go with the larger one. The difference in price is minimal compared to the potential of being hit with overage fees later on.

Ask about recycling options. It’s often cheaper for the dumpster company to recycle a load rather than dump it at the landfill. They may pass these savings on to you.

How long is a typical dumpster rental period?

A 7-day rental period is pretty standard, although this can vary by dumpster rental company. Some companies offer 14-day rental periods included in the price while others may charge a fee for each day you have the container.

Most companies allow you to keep the container longer by paying a “late fee,” which typically ranges from $5 to $10 per day. A maximum number of days may apply. You can also have the bin picked up earlier than the agreed upon pick-up date by calling the company and requesting a pick-up.

How to estimate the volume of waste

This is one of the most difficult aspects of choosing a dumpster size. Luckily, rental companies are experienced in handling a wide variety of loads ranging from household junk to roofing shingle debris. They can help you choose the ideal container size for the job.

You can also estimate the amount of debris yourself by physically measuring it and converting it to cubic yards. 1 cubic yard is equal to a 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. item or pile of debris. Due to the varying container dimensions, bulky or irregularly shaped items may consume quite a bit of volume in the container. It’s best you discuss this with your dumpster rental provider.

Most common roll-off container sizes

Roll-off dumpster sizes vary, but here are the most widely available:

  • 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. Check with several rental providers if you can’t find the container size your project needs.

Other relatively common container sizes include 8, 12 and 15 yarders. 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 is the waste sent?

Not all waste can be, or is, recycled. Much of the non-recycled waste in Hawaii is sent to the Covanta H-Power WTE plant in HI on Oahu, which is a waste-to-energy plant that burns the waste to create electricity – up to 8% of Oahu’s electricity usage.

There are also several other landfills in Hawaii that accept waste, and some waste is shipped away to landfills on the mainland.

Landfilling and shipping waste is expensive, topping $100 per ton in some cases. With the cost of recycling operations dropping just about every year, it’s becoming much more cost effective to recycle rather than landfill, not to mention the environmental benefits of recycling.
