Dumpster Rental Tips

Dumpsters for Rent

Estimating the volume of junk or debris

It’s difficult to estimate the amount of junk or debris you’ll have for a particular project, such as a roofing job or household cleanout. Your best source of information in this case is your dumpster rental company. They have experience in dealing with a wide variety and quantities of waste and debris. They can help you choose the ideal container size with relatively precise accuracy.

If you choose to estimate the amount of debris yourself, you can measure it and convert it to cubic yards. One cubic yard is equal to a 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. pile of debris. That’s about the volume of a standard kitchen stove.

Estimating the weight of a load is extremely difficult, and so it’s best to consult your dumpster provider to determine if your load is likely under the weight allowance for a particular container size.

How many days is the rental period?

One week is a standard rental period, although it’s not uncommon to find some dumpster rental companies offering 14-day rentals included in the price. Some may even charge a daily fee for rental, which could end up being a better deal in cases where you only need the container on site for a day or two.

If you need a dumpster for longer than the rental period, you can request it for longer and pay a “late fee” of typically $5 or $10 per day. Many rental companies cap the maximum length of the rental due to inventory issues. To have a debris box picked up prior to the end of the rental period, simply call the company and request a pick-up.

5 common types of dumpsters

Commercial dumpsters – Used for weekly/monthly trash hauling services at businesses. Not for temporary use.

Roll-off containers – Dumpsters you rent for temporary use at home, construction sites or commercial cleanups.

Trailer dumpsters – An alternative to roll-off dumpsters used by some rental providers. It offers the advantage of being on wheels, which decreases the risk of damage to your driveway.

Bag-style containers – “Bagster” and similar type of compact containers ranging from 1 cubic yard to 3 cubic yards, generally.

"Lowboy" dumpsters – Roll-off dumpsters with low sides, ideal for loading heavy materials, such as dirt, concrete or masonry.

Closer to home, get an idea of what other Delaware residents have paid for their dumpster rental:

Dumpster costs vary based on the city/metro you reside, as well as the other factors previously mentioned. For example, during the busy dumpster rental months (e.g., spring), containers are in limited supply, so costs may be slightly higher during this time. On the flip side, slow times of the year may net you a better deal on a dumpster.

Laws governing solid waste disposal and hauling in Delaware

Solid waste rules and regulations are governed by the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. You can gain access to these rules by accessing Title 7, section 1300 of the Administrative Code.

It’s important to have a general understanding of the solid waste laws in Delaware during any type of bulk waste removal project, such as a home renovation, roofing job, new construction or residential/commercial building cleanout. Disposing of the debris correctly can save you a headache, and a bunch of fines, later on.

Luckily, your local dumpster rental company can help ensure your waste and debris is properly disposed of or recycled.
