Different Types of Bulk Waste Containers
: These are the most popular choice for a wide range of cleanups, including construction jobs, demolition, household cleanouts, roofing work and more. Roll-offs are rented for a temporary basis
and the rental provider drops it off, picks it up and disposes of the debris for the customer. Roll-off dumpster sizes
range from 10 to 40 cubic yards.
Commercial or business dumpsters
: These bins are used by businesses for weekly trash removal needs. Commercial dumpster sizes generally range from 1 to 8 cubic yards. The waste hauler empties the container at a set interval, similarly to that of weekly trash pickups offered to residences.
: These are used similarly to roll-offs. They may be referred to as 'rubber-wheeled dumpsters
' or 'trailer dumpsters' as well. Because these bins are on wheels, they're ideal for use on softer ground. Not all waste haulers offer dumpster trailers. Sizes are generally smaller compared to roll-offs.
: These are designed for small amounts of renovation or demolition debris (e.g., 3 cubic yards or less). They’re made from tough materials that are flexible, yet strong. The “Bagster” is a popular bag-style waste container
that’s available at most home improvement stores or through waste hauling companies. You’ll generally pay for the bag and for disposal costs.
