Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Renting a Roll-Off Dumpster

If you're thinking about renting a roll-off dumpster but don't know what to do with it, the tips below should help. Renting a container is a great way to get rid of a lot of trash that can't be taken away with your regular trash service.

Customer Reviews

If you're planning to do some spring cleaning at your home or business or finish a remodeling or home improvement project, renting a can can make the job easier. But you should always call the Decatur city office before having a canister dropped off. For what? Because you might need a permit to put the dumpster on the street or close to a home.

If you're thinking about renting a trash can, these tips could be helpful.

1. Don't put the following things in a roll-off can until you've talked to your rental company:

  • Stoves, fridges, deep freezers
  • Mattresses
  • Any cans of oil or paint
  • Antifreeze or fuel
  • Gasoline or propane
  • Batteries
  • Grease or leftover food

2. Make sure you get a container that is the right size for the job.

3. Don't put anything next to, behind, or on top of the trash can.

4. Put the unit in a place that is easy to get to.

5. Don't put too much in the canister. This would mean you need to pay attention to the "fill line."

6. Keep the area around the trash can clean to keep rats from coming.

How to Choose the Right Size Container

If you want to buy a canister for your project but aren't sure what size will work best for you, we have a great guide for you. This will help you figure out what sizes of roll-off containers are usually used for different types of projects. This will make it easier to figure out what size you might need.

10-yard dumpsters are good for small jobs like remodeling a bathroom or kitchen. But this size probably won't work for ripping up carpet or remodeling a big house because it's square and the bigger sizes are rectangular.

20-yard – This is where you should start if you need to get rid of large pieces of tube, carpet, or wood, as well as long glass windows. The rectangle shape of these canisters lets you put longer items inside without having to worry about anything sticking out with sharp edges that could be dangerous.

The 30-yard dumpster is perfect for big remodeling jobs. This size is often used for garage demolition projects. It can also be used to build a new home or to replace the windows in a small or medium-sized home.

The 40-yard bin is the largest size and works well for big commercial jobs like tearing off a roof, building or remodeling a large house, or even tearing down a small house or building.

No matter what you are trying to do, we are sure to have what you need. If you need help, just give us a call. We'd be happy to help you choose the right size roll off dumpster for your needs.

What affects the price of a roll-off container in Decatur?

If you want to rent a roll-off dumpster and want to know how much it will cost in Decatur, you might want to compare the prices of different local rental companies.

Customer Reviews

Still, you should make sure you're comparing apples to apples when making comparisons. To do this, you'll need to know how rental costs are figured out. Here are the most important factors that will affect your price:

1. Where it is

How much something costs can depend on where you live. Costs are usually higher in Texas's bigger cities than in its smaller ones.

2. Travel time from the place of drop-off and disposal

If the rental company has to drive a long way to get to where you want the unit set up or where the trash will be dumped, you can expect to pay more than someone who lives closer.

3. Size and how much it can hold

The size of a canister is measured in cubic yards. More yardage means you'll have to pay more. Canisters with the same yardage but different side heights can hold very different amounts of stuff. Costs go up as total capacity goes up.

4. Disposal prices

The rental company has to get rid of the trash you put in the trash can, which can cost different amounts. The type of trash can also change how much it costs to rent.


We'd love to work with you.
