Tips for renting a roll-off dumpster in New York

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.
