10 Yard Dumpster


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.

20 Yard Dumpster

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.

30 Yard Dumpster

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.

40 Yard Dumpster

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.

How much does it cost in Delaware to rent a rolloff?

There are a number of things that affect how much it costs to rent a dumpster in Delaware. These include the size of the dumpster, the type of debris, the weight of the debris, how long you rent it for, and how much your county's landfill costs. Most of the time, though, the price will be between $300 and $750. Give us a call if you want to know the exact price for everything.

Here are some tips that will help you choose a container.

The size of a dumpster is based on the amount of space it can hold in cubic yards. For example, a 10-yard trash can can hold 10 yards of trash or other waste. Most of the time, the sizes of containers range from 10 to 40 yards in 10-yard steps.

Customer Reviews

Estimating how much trash a project will make can be hard, so it's usually best to call a container rental company in Delaware and ask them to help you figure out what size container will work best for the job you're doing. Here are some more ideas for renting that might help you:

Remember that if the roll-off container is going to be put on a street, you may need to get a permit from the city offices in Delaware.

If the roll-off container ends up going on your property, make sure it doesn't go on grass or soft ground. The units are very heavy, so if they're not supported properly, they could cause a lot of damage.

Even if the container is going to be put on a concrete or asphalt driveway, you might want to put plywood under the rollers of the roll off to protect the driveway.

Things You Shouldn't Throw in a Roll-off Bin

  • Paint cans
  • Motor oil or automotive fluids
  • Batteries
  • Drugs or waste from hospitals
  • Anything that has freon, oil, or gas in it
  • Chemicals for the lawn or the pool
  • Bleach or cleaners for the house

When all the trash from your project has been put into the roll-off container, you can call the company that rented it to you and they will come pick it up and take it to a recycling center, transfer station, or landfill.

Choosing between the different sizes of dumpsters

Most dumpster rental services in your area offer a range of sizes to meet your needs. Cubic yards are used to measure roll-off cans. Most of the time, the sizes range from 10 to 40 yards. Here are some details about the different sizes:

Ten Yard

The amount of trash that can fit in a 10-yard container is 10 cubic yards. There is no perfect way to choose the right size, but here are some ideas for how this size can be used.

Customer Reviews

A 10-yard shot is good for:

  • 250 square feet deck removal
  • Clean out your garage or basement.
  • Remodeling a bathroom or a small kitchen
  • 1500 square feet of roof tiles with one layer

Twenty Yard

A 20-yard container can hold up to 20 cubic yards of trash, which is about ten pickup truck loads. This is the most popular size because it is cheap, holds a lot, and doesn't take up much space.

A 20-yard shot is great for:

  • Between 2500 and 3000 square feet of single-layer roofing shingle waste
  • Cleaning up junk from the garage, basement, or loft
  • Between 300 and 400 square feet of deck debris
  • Taking out the carpet and flooring from a bigger house

Thirty Yard

A 30-yard roll off dumpster can hold thirty cubic yards of trash. The 30-yard canister would be great for both large-scale commercial cleaning jobs and complete home cleanouts.

A 30-yarder is the right length for:

  • Garage demolition
  • Building a new house
  • Adding a lot to the house
  • Complete replacement of the outside of a small to medium-sized house or all of its windows.

Forty Yard

The amount of trash that can fit in a 40-yard container is 40 cubic yards. This unit is a great choice for large residential projects, industrial jobs, and business cleanups.

Also, a 40-yarder is great for:

  • Office or business building needs to be cleaned up.
  • Business roof tear off
  • Any bigger house needs new siding or windows.
  • Lots of trash, cardboard, or garbage from building work
  • Major renovations or new building of a large house

Choosing the right size roll-off container is not an exact science, but it is best to call a roll-off company in your area and ask for help choosing the right size for your job.

Estimating Prices for Roll-Off Containers in Delaware

Rent prices in Delaware depend on a lot of different things. Even though a lot of service providers usually give free quotes, you should still find out how rental rates are usually set. Here are some of the most important things that change prices.

How big is the rental unit?

Obviously, bigger containers can hold a lot more trash, both in terms of volume and weight. Big containers also need to be moved and dumped with more work. Because of this, renting a bigger canister costs more than renting a smaller one.

Customer Reviews

Fees at the dump

When it comes to dumping trash in landfills, many cities and states charge more than others. The fee that one city charges to dump trash could be a lot more than what another city charges. This fee is usually taken into account when figuring out how much it costs to rent a trash bin. Most companies that rent roll-off dumpsters in Ohio include this cost in the prices they quote.

Cost of Getting There

Transportation costs depend on how far the canister has to go. If you live far from a recycling center or garbage dump, you should expect to pay more than someone who lives closer to where the canister will be dumped.

Sort of Garbage

Most trash from homes is a lot lighter than trash from building projects. Because of this, it costs more to get rid of waste from building projects. But the opposite might be true if the construction waste is recyclable, since it costs less to get rid of recyclables at a recycling center than at a landfill.

When you rent a roll-off container, you should know that the price will depend on the size of the unit, the type of trash, how far it is from where the trash will be dumped, and how much the local landfill costs.
