Types of
Roll-Off Dumpsters

Roll-Off Dumpsters and Containers for Rent

Roll-off dumpsters have two basic designs—the open roll-off dumpster and the closed roll-off dumpster—for compactors. Roll-off dumpsters are named as such because they are “rolled off” from a hauling truck at a delivery location and then picked up once the roll-off dumpster has been filled, removing the rubbish within for disposal.

Open Roll Off Containers

When people think of dumpsters, they typically think of open-top roll-off dumpsters. Open roll-off dumpsters are loaded from the top or through the back door. These are most commonly seen at construction and demolition sites but are often used for residential waste removal projects as well.

Prices for this service can be one total lump sum price with a weight limit and overage rates, or they can be a breakdown of pick-up, rental, and disposal fees for specific driving distances.

Reasons to Rent a Residential Dumpster​

Here are a few of the reasons our customers have rented a residential dumpster from us:

Closed Roll Off Containers

Closed roll-off containers are used with stationary compactors. Closed on the top, they are loaded through the end via a compactor. The compactor remains fixed, but when the roll-off dumpster attached to it is full, it is detached and taken away for disposal. For more information about compactors, check out our Trash Compactors and Compacting Dumpsters page.
