Dumpster Rental Tips for Montrose, PA
Dumpsters for Rent
How can I reduce costs when renting a roll-off container?
As with any purchase, informed shoppers get the best deal. That’s certainly the case when it comes to dumpster rentals.
So, here are a few tips that help you become a more informed customer when shopping for the best deal on dumpster rentals:
- Call at least two roll-off container rental companies for quotes. This ensures you’re getting the best deal. You can even barter for a better deal by using one quote as leverage against the other.
- Avoid overage charges by keeping heavy debris at a minimum (e.g., dirt, concrete, brick, etc.). Likewise, avoid late fees by calling and having the dumpster rental provider pick up the container at the agreed upon date.
- When on the fence about which bin size to choose, go with the larger dumpster. The difference in price is minimal compared to the potential of being hit with overage fees later on.
Ask about recycling options. It’s often cheaper for the dumpster company to recycle a load rather than dump it at the landfill. They may pass these savings on to you.

How long is a typical dumpster rental period?
A 7-day dumpster rental period is pretty standard, although this can vary by dumpster rental company. Some companies offer 14-day rental periods included in the price while others may charge a fee for each day you have the container.
Most companies allow you to keep the container longer by paying a “late fee,” which typically ranges from $5 to $10 per day. A maximum number of days may apply. You can also have the bin picked up earlier than the agreed upon pick-up date by calling the company and requesting a pick-up.
How do I estimate the volume of waste?
This is one of the most difficult aspects of choosing a roll-off container size. Luckily, rental companies are experienced in handling a wide variety of loads ranging from household junk to roofing shingle debris. They can help you choose the ideal container size for the job.
You can also estimate the amount of debris yourself by physically measuring it and converting it to cubic yards. 1 cubic yard is equal to a 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft item or pile of debris. Due to the varying container dimensions, bulky or irregularly shaped items may consume quite a bit of volume in the container. It’s best you discuss this with your dumpster rental provider.
