When renting a container, you should keep in mind that it would be helpful to know how much trash you'll be getting rid of. We have roll-off containers that are 10, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards in size.
But you can always call our number and talk to us. Sizes vary, so you need to make sure you have enough room for the dumpster you choose. But there are some important things you should keep in mind if you are trying to figure out what size dumpster you need.
In the Burbank area, the main things that affect how much it costs to rent a dumpster are how big it is and how much you think it will weigh when it's full. First of all, we'll just say that whatever number you're thinking of right now, it's likely that our rental price will be much lower.
We can give you an idea by showing you this survey from Home Advisor. It says that the average cost for a homeowner to rent a dumpster is about $400. This is because the rates will also take into account other things.
If you have more questions, give us a call so we can answer them. Depending on what kind of trash you put in the dumpster, you may have to pay extra. Check with the company that you rented the container from because they might offer ways to get rid of recyclables for less money or for free.
There are different sizes of dumpsters. This means that our rental units can meet your needs, which might be:

Just to give you an idea, you usually don't need a permit from your city office to put one of our dumpsters in your yard or driveway. A permit is not needed to rent a roll-off dumpster and put it on private property. You can't also put pedestrians in danger, which is exactly what you'll be doing if you block the sidewalk.
Aside from where you put the dumpster, what you put in it is also a factor in whether or not you need a permit. Also, some homeowners or apartment renters who need a dumpster have to think about where they will park it, which can again affect the requirements and cost of permits. You can't just throw them in the trash because there's a special way to get rid of them.
The best way to find out if you need a permit is to talk to a city or town official in your area. Permits have to be picked up in person and paid for when they are given out. So, you wouldn't have to go to the city hall, which saves you time, effort, and money.
