1. What are the different dumpster sizes?

2. What will be the ideal dumpster size for me?

Well, there is no one dumpster size to fit all customers. The size of the dumpster for your particular project will largely depend on two factors – the amount of junk and type of debris to be picked up by our haulers. It’s better to contact us as your chosen dumpster rental company and elaborate about your project details. Our experienced rolloff rental staff will be able to suggest you the ideal size required for your specific project.

3. Do I need to consider weight limits while renting dumpster?

Yes, you will have to consider some weight limit while renting one of our dumpsters. The rental companies generally offer dumpsters with specified weight limit, this is common market practice. It denotes the amount of weight a particular dumpster can hold safely. If you exceed the given weight limit with your hired dumper, you will possibly have to pay additional charges.

A reputable dumpster rental company like us will usually offer a weight calculator on its website. Use it to determine the weight of waste materials to be disposed of. Based on that information, your chosen dumpster rental company will get you the ideal dumpster with the required weight limit for your specific project.

4. What can or can’t be included in the roll-off dumpster?

The items that you can include in your dumpster are:

  • yard waste
  • electronics
  • appliances
  • concrete, brick, asphalt

5. How to load my hired dumpster

Try to load it as evenly as possible. It will enable you to stash more debris inside and also to prevent any dumpster overload. No item should hang over the sides of the dumpster.

Overfilled container generally carry an additional fee. So make sure the dumpster is not exactly filled over the brim.
