Dumpster Rental Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my dumpster rental cost?

This is usually our most frequently asked question, so let’s get straight to it. The price of your dumpster rental depends on a few factors, most importantly, the size of the dumpster, the length of the rental, and when you need it. Larger containers, longer rentals, and short notice delivery times increase the price of the rental.

While most consumers look at a dumpster rental as an expense, it’s important to think of the time and effort saved in using a professional container rental. Additionally, if you didn’t use a dumpster rental company, you would have to pay the dump fees yourself at the landfill. That said, as a general estimate, a standard roll off rental costs between $400-$800, depending on your needs. Just give us a call and we’ll be happy to walk you through the pricing factors of your specific situation.

Will there be any additional costs after my quote?

In a word: no. When you work with us, there will be no hidden fees or surcharges above your initial quote. Dumpsters may have weight limits, and when exceeded, you may be charged more, but we will be clear about this upfront with you when you book your rental.

Can you help me load the dumpster?

We know several local junk haulers who would be happy to help you if you need help loading the dumpster, so just let us know and we can get you connected. We ourselves only handle delivery and pickup of the dumpster.

Are there any unacceptable materials?

Yes, we do not accept any hazardous materials such as liquids, rebar, medical or biological waste, asbestos, paint, gas, or oil. We can help you dispose of such materials in other ways, so contact us and give us a heads up so we can help you make the appropriate arrangements.
