4 Questions You Should Ask Before Renting a Roll-Off Dumpster Rental

Most people don’t need a roll-off dumpster rental very often and don’t really know what they are looking for or what questions they need to ask. Here are a few questions to keep in mind:

What Types of Dumpsters Do You Rent?

Generally, there are two types of dumpsters you can rent: compacting dumpsters and roll-off dumpsters. Compacting dumpsters are used for commercial and industrial businesses that generate a lot of waste, while roll-off dumpsters are for businesses that generate a moderate amount of waste or needed for short-term waste management needs.

What Sizes of Roll-Off Dumpster Do You Rent?

Learning which sizes of roll-off dumpster your roll-off dumpster company offers is important when it comes to getting the right dumpster rental size for you. Most dumpster rental companies offer sizes anywhere from a 10-yard roll-off dumpster to a 40-yard roll-off dumpster.

How Long Does the Dumpster Rental Period Last?

The amount of time between the dumpster drop-off and dumpster pick-up is important, especially if you find out that it takes you more time to fill the dumpster than you planned. A good roll-off dumpster rental company can be somewhat flexible in these situations.

What Are Some Restrictions on What I Can Put in the Dumpster?

There are many situations where the contents emptied into a roll-off dumpster are important. In the case of a LEEDS project, you need to make sure that you sort the dumpster contents for recycling. Another situation where the contents of the dumpster is important is when considering the weight of the waste within it. For example, you shouldn’t fill a 30 or 40-yard roll-off dumpster with concrete, masonry, soil or rock because the dumpster would then be too heavy to remove it. These items should be disposed of in a 10 or 20-yard roll-off dumpster. Most dumpster rental companies also have restrictions on the types of waste you can dispose of—for example many roll-off dumpster companies do not accept toxic chemicals, or asbestos. It is always a good idea to call the dumpster rental company ahead of time to learn about their particular restrictions.
