Customer Reviews

Make sure you don't throw away things that the rental company or the landfill where the things you're throwing away will end up won't let you. For example, most landfills don't let you throw away the following things, either because of rules set by the rental company or by the local, state, or even federal government:

  • Paints, paint thinners, solvents, and lacquers.
  • Chemical cleaners and toxic items found around the house.
  • Batteries.
  • Fuels.
  • Sticky things and resins.

If you think something might be dangerous, flammable, or toxic, talk to your rental company before you put it in the container.

Factors that affect the cost of a roll-off dumpster in Crystal Dumpster companies will bring empty bins to the spot you specify. Once you've filled the bin with trash, they'll take it to a dump or recycling center. The cost of renting a roll off container depends on a number of things, such as the size of the container needed, the weight of the trash, where the landfill is located, and how much it costs to get the trash there.

The main things that go into figuring out how much a dumpster costs in Crystal are:

  • Places to drop off and throw away
  • Reject the size and weight
  • Costs related to transportation
  • Rental duration
  • Kind of trash

Costs depend on the type of trash because Minnesota waste management companies have to send the right-sized container and find a good place to dump it. The fees at landfills and recycling plants are lower for things that break down and can be recycled than for things that don't break down, can't be recycled, or are dangerous. Your price is directly affected by these things.

Customer Reviews

Costs related to transportation

The cost of a rental includes things like the cost of gas and the cost of a delivery driver. Transportation costs are higher because more fuel is used. This is mostly because drop-offs and trips to landfills and recycling transfer stations are farther away. The price of a roll-off dumpster is also affected by the price of gas, since high gas prices automatically mean more gas costs.

The amount and weight of trash

The amount of trash determines how big the can is as a whole, while the weight of the trash affects how the hauler is set up. Big dumpsters and equipment that is hard to use cost more than small containers and equipment that is easy to use. You should figure out how much trash you have and how big it is so you can order the right size container.
