How Best to Load a Roll Off Dumpster

Organize Trash For Dumpster

When renting a roll-off dumpster, it is important to plan how you will load of the items to be disposed. Getting the most out of your dumpster’s size can be accomplished by following a few simple guidelines.

Break down larger items – Tear down your larger items into the smallest pieces possible. Boxes should be folded, drywall broken into smaller sheets, even wood cut to smaller lengths. You want to fill all open air ‘pockets’ with waste items.

Plan how you are going to load – Before loading the dumpster, have an idea of what is going in first and make piles of large, medium, and smaller items. Then load your dumpster starting at one end, not the middle, and work your way to the front or gate end. This will protect you from getting hemmed in by garbage.

Add Larger Items first – By adding your large and bulky items first, you can then fill the gaps with your other smaller items, getting the most out of your roll off dumpster and maybe ensuring one load will finish the job.

Advantage of organized piles – By taking the time to organize your items in sizes, or similar waste in advance, will help you to maximize filling your roll off dumpster to capacity. You will more easily be able to select which items to add as the dumpster begins to fill.

When is the roll off dumpster full – Is best not to over fill the dumpster as the items will just have to take them back out. Preferably, you want all items level with the top edge of the dumpster.  This will keep loose items falling out over the side in transit, but the driver most likely will not move the dumpster until is safe to do so.
