Common Factors That Affect 40 Yard Dumpster Pricing
- Included weight limit
- Local disposal and permit fees
- Overage fees or other surcharges
- Who you rent from
Dumpster overage fees vary from one rental provider to the next but range from $75-$100+ per ton on average depending on where you're located.
To be sure you aren't caught off guard by any fees, make sure you understand what each dumpster rental quote includes.
Ask each provider you speak to about any potential fees you could incur for things like...
- Exceeding your included weight limit
- Keeping your dumpster beyond your included rental period
- Including a certain type of debris that the company prohibits
Always factor in the estimated weight of the debris you plan to load into the dumpster, or explain your project in detail to the providers you speak to so they can recommend the best dumpster size for your project.
It can get expensive if you go over the weight limit, so choosing the right dumpster size is important.
