Dumpster Rental Alternative

A dumpster or roll-off is pretty much a common site around most towns and major cities. It’s a big business that’s worth the cost. However, if you are in the need of dumpster rental for your junk removal, you should be aware of a few things. You will likely only be responsible for some of the following:

  • Pay for the dumpster or roll-off rental
  • Pay for the weight of junk and other stuff you put in the dumpster or roll-off over and above the original cost
  • Abide by the restrictions on what you can or cannot put in the dumpster
  • Only load the stuff/junk into the dumpster or hire some person to do it for you
  • Having that dumpster sitting in front of your property until you’re finished loading your junk

On the other hand, if you hire a regular moving company, you may be able to avoid the conveniences that come with that moving company. Some take junk like appliances, scrap metal, electronics and organic materials that the dumpster rental won’t allow. You should also inquire as to whether your junk will get recycled or reused whenever possible. So here’s the bottom line, folks.

  1. Will you be able to make onsite appointments as well as same day service?
  2. Will you receive upfront pricing on the junk being removed?
    Note: Most all dumpster rental companies offer the following:
  • 10 cubic yard dumpster – 12′ long x 8′ wide x 3′ feet tall
  • 12 cubic yard dumpster – 16′ long x 8′ wide x 4.5′ tall
  • 30 cubic yard dumpster – 22′ long x 8′ wide x 5′ feet tall
    If you need a larger dumpster ask about their 40 yard container for larger projects you may have.
