Local dumpster rental prices depend on the availability of landfills, local disposal fees and even regional regulations about sorting and recycling in a given area. For example, container rentals on the East Coast or West Coast may be more expensive than in the Midwest, and a debris box in a big city may cost more than in a smaller town.
We’ll walk you through the dumpster rental process and make you aware of certain local specific regulations including permit requirements.
2. Debris Type
Local disposal costs for household debris, construction materials, yard waste and heavy debris can vary based on the availability of landfills and waste transfer facilities. So container prices factor in the processing costs for what you’re throwing out. Here are some examples of common dumpster categories and types of materials we generally accept:
Household Debris, Furniture, General Trash and Junk
Asphalt and Slate Shingles
Shrubs, Bushes, Trees, Dirt and Soil
Concrete, Brick and Asphalt
Drywall, Plaster, Wood, Flooring and Cabinetry
We’re here to help you determine what type of dumpster you need for your specific project, whether it’s new construction or a home cleanout. If you have any questions about prohibited items, just give our team a call at 833-499-7504 and we’ll help you understand the disposal options in your area.
3. Weight of Materials and Dumpster Size
Landfill disposal fees are primarily based on the total tonnage of your material: the heavier the dumpster, the more it costs to dispose of the contents. Think about the total weight of your debris when deciding which container size you order. Here are the typical weight limits for each size, but keep in mind they can vary by location:
10 Yard Dumpster
The average cost of a 10 yard dumpster is $377.45. This price typically includes a 2-3 ton weight limit, meaning even our smallest roll off dumpster size still holds a substantial amount of debris.Learn More
20 Yard Dumpster
The average price of a 20 yard dumpster is $424.73. This price covers a 3 ton weight limit. This is the size we typically recommend for roof tear-offs large cleanouts or home renovations.Learn More
30 Yard Dumpster
The average cost of a 30 yard roll off dumpster is $487.71. This price typically includes a 3.5-5 ton weight limit, making this size is ideal for disposing of large amounts of yard waste, bulky items and roofing shingles.Learn More
40 Yard Dumpster
The price of a 40 yard dumpster averages $544.73, with a 5-6 ton weight limit. Our largest dumpster size is great for disposing of debris from big projects like major renovations or demolitions.Learn More
We include a standard weight limit for our roll off dumpsters included in your rental price. When shopping around, you may find that other providers’ rates cover lower weight limits for the same size containers, so always check what you’re getting for your money. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 833-499-7504.
4. Rental Period
The length of time you keep a temporary dumpster is also factored into the cost. Standard rental periods are generally ten days, but if you need to hang on to it longer, that may impact the final price of your container. If you're planning for a long-term project, please ask about our ongoing roll off rental services when you call.
Long rental periods and ongoing roll off rental services help keep your project on track and your job site clear from debris. When shopping around for other dumpster rental quotes, be sure to ask about standard rental periods and if there is any flexibility to extend the rental.
Does Anything Else Affect the Cost of a Dumpster Rental?
There are a few scenarios that can result in an additional dumpster rental fee. Since no one likes to see an extra charge show up on their bill, our team will fully review the terms and conditions in your rental agreement to help you understand these charges and what you can do to avoid them. The most common fees include:
We charge a trip fee if a driver cannot deliver or pick up the dumpster when they arrive. This usually happens because there isn’t enough room or there is something blocking the location, like a parked car or power lines.
Hazardous Waste Disposal Fee
Hazardous waste requires handling at a special facility since it cannot be processed at a general landfill. We charge a fee for any prohibited materials placed in the dumpster to cover transporting it to the proper facility.
Going over the weight limit included with your dumpster rental may result in an overage fee. This is more common when dealing with bulky items, heavy debris and roofing materials, so try using our weight calculators to estimate how much your debris will weigh.
We charge a fee when any material is sticking over the top or hanging over the edges of the dumpster. Remember that our drivers can’t legally transport overloaded containers on the road.
We charge a late fee for each day you keep your dumpster beyond your rental period. If you know your project will take a specific amount of time, you can ask for an extension when you call to set up your rental, or set up ongoing roll off rental service.
