Dumpster Rental Tips

Construction Dumpster Sub Tip 3

Reminders When Renting a Construction Dumpster:

Don’t go over your dumpster's weight allowance. The weight capacity will vary depending on who you rent from and the dumpster size you rent. Going over the weight allowance will incur additional charges as high as $100 per ton.

Standard rental periods are seven days (varies by company). A per-day late fee is applicable for keeping the dumpster longer than your contract covers, so make sure you understand your dumpster rental period to avoid paying extra.

The type of waste/debris is important. Some rental companies have rules in place based on the type of debris. The weight allowance may vary depending on the debris you're throwing away. Some companies may not allow you to mix certain debris, like concrete and household trash for example.

Some waste is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, hazardous wastes, tires, automotive fluids, and batteries.

Many dumpster rental companies recycle. Make it easier for your dumpster rental company (and potentially less expensive for you) by separating recyclable materials when possible, like concrete, asphalt shingles, dirt, cardboard/paper, and scrap metal.

Common Construction Dumpster Sizes

The most common size construction dumpster are 10 yard, 20 yard, 30 yard, and 40 yard containers. Sizes and availability vary by company, so check with a couple of different companies to get the size you need.

Some rental providers specialize in compact dumpsters designed specifically for residential use (e.g., home renovations, remodeling projects, small cleanouts, and other small home projects).

Easy steps to rent a dumpster

Ensure the dumpster rental process goes smoothly using the simple steps outlined here:

1. Plan ahead – Renting a dumpster is generally not a spur of the moment thing. Determine your project’s disposal needs at least two weeks ahead of time. Call at least a week in advance to book the dumpster, or two weeks in advance during busy months (spring, summer, and fall). That way you can rest assured knowing the dumpster will be there when you need it.

2. Get multiple quotes – Be sure you’re getting the best rate, service, and container for your project by getting quotes from multiple rental providers. We recommend at least two or three.

3. Prep for drop-off – Make sure the drop off location has easy access and no obstructions, such as cars, kid’s toys, or even fences (if applicable).

4. Follow the loading guidelines – Avoid the headaches later on and: Don’t over-fill the dumpster, avoid disposing of prohibited items (e.g., hazardous wastes), don’t mix trash in with clean loads (e.g., concrete only), and follow other guidelines given to you by the dumpster rental company.
