Dumpster Rental Guide

Dumpster rentals are typically used for short-term projects at a temporary location. Once the dumpster is full, or the rental period expires, the waste management company will remove the receptacle. Dumpsters come in a variety of sizes, from smaller bin style receptacles to large roll-off units. A dumpster rental is optimal in situations where the amount or type of waste on a job site or at a function would prohibit you from using a regularly scheduled waste disposal service. The cost to rent a dumpster varies depending on size of the bin and the dro p off/pick up location. Equipmentrentalpros.com tells you everything you need to know about renting a dumpster.

Dumpster Size Guide

Knowing what size dumpster to rent is important. If you rent a dumpster that is too small, you might have to schedule an extra pickup—costing you precious time and money. If you rent a dumpster that is too large, you pay for more than you can utilize. Dumpster rentals range in size from 10 yards to 40 yards. Additionally, 8 yard disposable dumpster bag rentals are available for rental in some areas.

Common Dumpster Uses

Major and minor remodeling projects, new residential and commercial building sites, single room or whole office renovations, and house cleanouts are some of the places you will frequently find a dumpster. Dumpsters are not only used for construction projects; although, that is actually the reason dumpsters were invented by the Dempster Brothers in the 1930s.

Dumpsters are often rented for large annual events, such as a fair or circus, where the amount of refuse would be overwhelming for a regular trash pick-up. Dumpster rentals are also convenient for landscaping clean-up—leaves, large tree limbs, tree stumps, and other types of yard debris can be disposed of in a dumpster. Other uses for a dumpster include building demolition site cleanup and rental home clean outs.
