Dumpsters for Rent
Is the waste recycled? If not, where does it go?
Some do and some don’t. In recent years, recycling efforts have picked up drastically and so an increasing number of roll-off rental companies are starting to offer recycling
The best way to ensure your debris is recycled is to first ask if it’s offered.
If so, you’ll need to keep recyclables in a separate dumpster.
For example, concrete debris
should go in one dumpster and non-recyclables in another.
Loads that are not recyclable will go to local municipal landfills, C&D landfills or waste-to-energy plants.
How can renting a larger dumpster may save me money?
It’s very difficult to accurately estimate how much your debris or junk is going to weigh and how much volume it will consume inside a dumpster
While dumpster rental companies are remarkably good at helping you choose the right size dumpster for the job, it’s still just an educated guess.
For this reason, it may be a more cost-effective strategy to go with a slightly larger container
than you think you may need.
The extra $50 to $100 in rental fees may in fact be less expensive compared to the potential overage charges
incurred if you go over the weight limit on a smaller size dumpster.
Overage charges generally range from $50 to $100 per ton
but can be more than that in some instances.
Going with a bigger container is also cheaper in situations where you rent a bin that’s slightly too small to complete the job and so you end up renting another.
You rent a 10-yard container
for a home cleanup and it turns out there’s about 15 yards of debris. You may have paid $250 for the rental but now you’ll need to pay an additional $250 to rent a second 10 yard dumpster to complete the job. If you have rented a 20 yard roll-off
in the first place for $350-$400, you would’ve saved a substantial amount of money – not to mention time.
