More tips on renting a dumpster in Oakland, MD
How long can I keep a temporary dumpster?
A 7-day rental period is often standard, although this can vary by company. Some dumpster services offer 14-day rental periods included in the price while others may charge a fee for each extra day you have the container.
Most companies allow you to keep the container longer by paying a per day or per week rental fee, which typically ranges from $5 to $10 per day (but can vary). A maximum number of days may apply. You can also have the trash bin picked up earlier than the agreed upon pick-up date by calling the company and requesting a pick-up.
Can any of my trash or debris be recycled?
Household junk or trash is taken to the landfill. Some types of construction and demolition debris may be able to be recycled, but it depends mostly on whether recycling facilities are available in your area. In recent years, recycling efforts have picked up significantly and so an increasing number of roll-off companies are able to offer recycling of C&D (construction and demolition) debris, asphalt roof shingles, concrete, and some other debris types.
The best way to know if your debris can be recycled is to first ask your selected disposal service. If so, you’ll need to keep recyclables in a separate dumpster. For example, concrete debris should go in one dumpster and non-recyclable mixed trash in another.
