How Our Upfront Pricing Saves You More

We bundle the costs of your roll off dumpster into one straightforward rate that combines delivery, pickup, taxes, disposal fees and a generous weight allowance. This way, you can budget for your project confidently.

When comparing dumpster rental prices and sizes, you might find that other providers’ cover smaller weight limits for the same size container, or do not include all of the costs associated with their service with your initial quote. With us, your invoice is the price you pay - it's that easy.

1. Location

Local dumpster rental prices depend on fuel costs, 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.

2. Debris Type

Local disposal costs for household items, construction materials, yard waste and heavy debris vary based on the availability of landfills and other processing facilities. We’ll make sure you’re aware of local regulations, recycling options and prohibited items.

Here are our most common temporary dumpster categories and types of materials we generally accept:

Common Items: Household Debris, Furniture, General Trash and Junk

Common Items: Asphalt and Slate Shingles, Underlayment, Flashing and Roof Vents

Common Items: Shrubs, Bushes, Trees, Dirt and Soil

Common Items: Concrete, Brick, Gravel and Asphalt

Common Items: Drywall, Plaster, Wood, Flooring and Cabinetry

3. Weight of Materials and Dumpster Size

Landfill tipping 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 to order.

Try our weight calculators to find the tonnage you need.

4. Rental Period

The length of time you keep a temporary dumpster on site is also factored into the cost. Standard rental periods are generally 7-10 days, but if you need to hang on to it longer that may impact the final price of your container. If you're planning a long-term project, please ask about our ongoing roll off rental services when you call.
