About four pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 10 yard roll-off container. They are often used for small projects like remodeling a bathroom or kitchen, cleaning out a garage or basement, replacing a small roof up to 1500 square feet, or taking down a small deck up to 500 square feet.
About eight pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 20-yard roll-off container. They are often used to remove carpet or flooring from a large house, clean out a large garage or basement, replace a roof up to 3000 square feet, or take down a deck up to 400 square feet.
About 12 pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 30 yard roll-off container. They are often used for big home additions, building a new house, tearing down a garage, replacing siding or windows on a small to medium-sized house, and so on.
About 16 pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 40-yard roll-off container. They are often used for big projects like building or remodeling a big house, cleaning out a business, or replacing the siding or windows on a big house.
The size of the project is one thing to think about when deciding whether or not to rent a roll-off container. This is probably one of the few industries where you pay for the space. It's a waste of money to pay for space you don't use. Before you decide to rent a container, it's best to talk to us, your container rental company.
This is so you don't rent a dumpster that is bigger than you need. We are very picky about what goes inside because dangerous materials need extra permits from the city and state, and people who break this rule will be fined.
First, you should know that dumpsters are usually 10 cubic yards, 20 cubic yards, 30 cubic yards, or 40 cubic yards. Sizes in between aren't very common. Here are just a few examples of metal dumpsters and what they are used for: Consider the following load requirements, which are typical for most home improvement projects, to help you decide what size dumpster to rent.
One-Room Remodeling or Teardown: If you are remodeling or tearing down one room, all the debris and waste will fit into a 10- or 20-cubic yard dumpster, depending on how big the room is. The bigger one is 22 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 4.5 feet high, so you can even put some furniture in there.
General Cleaning and Renovating Multiple Rooms: If you are cleaning more than one room in the house, all of the trash can fit in a 30-cubic yarder. It looks like your choice will mostly depend on how big the project is.
One Storage Area Cleanup: If you're cleaning out a storage area, like the attic, basement, or garage, choose a smaller dumpster, between 10 and 15 cubic yards. If you are getting rid of old furniture, on the other hand, you will need a bigger dumpster. But if you are disposing your furniture as well, then go for a 20-cubic yarder.
Whole-House Cleanup: If you're cleaning your whole house, and it's a normal-sized house and not a mansion, you might only need a 20-cubic-yard dumpster.
Landscaping: You should be fine with a heavy-duty container that is 10 to 15 cubic yards. If you are tearing down your patio, then a bigger sized dumpster is advisable. A metal dumpster with 10 to 15 cubic yards of space can hold small amounts of trash, dirt, plant or tree leaves and branches.
Construction and Demolition: Construction and demolition are medium-sized projects that usually require a 30- to 40-cubic yarder to hold construction waste like drywall and lumber. But if most of what you want to throw away are bricks, you should be able to fit them in a smaller specialty dumpster. For bigger projects, a 40-cubic yard metal dumpster would be the ideal option.
Feel free to use this information, but when you're ready to start the project, give us a call so we can help you choose the right dumpster for your needs. The information above only gives you a general idea of the size and uses you can expect.
Surprisingly, dumpster pricing does not come at a high price you’ll have to break the bank for. But keep in mind that there are certain conditions that can increase the total cost, like for instance, the dumpster size, the purpose, and other fees.
Indeed, these different types of dumpsters will affect dumpster cost:
Also include these factors into the computation:
Simply put, it's impossible to list accurate prices here without knowing what your needs are. To cut a long story short, we can't list the cost of renting here. We're going to tell you that the average price of a metal dumpster in the United States is about $400.
It certainly won’t hurt if you call up the local city office or your homeowners association and ask for an expert advice.
Based on our experience, if you put the dumpster within your property within a reasonable period, you won’t need any kind of permit. However, the rules change when you don’t have any space in your property. Then you would have to park the dumpster in the street or on the sidewalk. You can unburden yourself of the hassle by renting an order that is small enough to fit on your property. Needless to say, do try to find out more about pertinent laws in your area by contacting Aiken city office. You will also want to connect with your HOA or the local rental company to be sure you have all the rules straightened out.
Nevertheless, do not hesitate to give us a call for any other inquiries you may have, or if you are ready to get started.
