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.
They are measured in cubic yards, which is also how much they can hold.
Even if you only have a few things to throw away, you'll still need a small dumpster. So, how much can a dumpster really hold? Think about the size of a regular pick-up truck. Choose the smaller dumpster size unless you have a mountain of trash to throw away. If you want to do some remodeling that is a little more complicated, rent our 20-yard dumpster.
If you're going to work on a bigger project and think you'll have about 6 pick-up truckloads of trash, a 20-yard dumpster is a safer choice. The 20-cubic-yard roll-off container will hold the same amount of trash as about six pick-up trucks. The largest piece of equipment we have is a 40-yard dumpster.
It's important not to overfill the dumpsters, so when you're looking for dumpsters to rent, make sure you know how much trash you want to get rid of. If you go over the weight limit, it can cause a lot of problems, not the least of which is that your trash could end up on the street on the way to the dump because the container broke. We can help you choose the right size dumpster if we know how big your project is and how big your area is. But if you want a more accurate estimate of which dumpster you will order from us, you should call our number.
We can't tell you right now how much the different sizes of dumpsters might cost. Again, size is not the only thing that goes into figuring out how much something will cost. If only you knew how much you would need to rent containers! You can get an idea of how much a dumpster will cost by looking at things like the type of dumpster, its size, location, availability, rental period, the weight of the trash, and how your city handles waste disposal. We also take into account the number of days the dumpster will be on your property, as well as the fees charged by the landfill and other local fees.
These are the types of dumpsters that change the total cost:
The amount of trash you put in the dumpster is a big part of how much it will cost. Also, it is against the law to put dangerous trash in the landfill. If you throw away dangerous things, you might also have to pay extra.
We are experts at emergency rentals, but you will have to pay more because of the situation. The people who answer the phone have been trained to help you quickly. Our customer service reps can help you choose the right dumpster. Dial our number right away.
Call the number for Fountain Hills to find out more about how to get a permit and what you need to do to get one. We always tell our customers to park the dumpster on their own property so they don't get in trouble with their HOA or a government inspector. Since we started this business, most states don't really ask for paperwork if you just put the rental roll-off dumpster on your property.
When you put the container on your property, they mostly don't care because you still have the right to do that. But, and we've seen this a million times, some people don't have a lot of room in their yard or house to fit the yard container. If you want to put rented dumpsters on public property, you need a permit. Be ready and get a permit ahead of time to make sure your project doesn't get messed up. This is important because if you leave the dumpster on the street for a long time, you will be blocking traffic. The same is true if you put the bin on the sidewalk, which means that people on foot will have to go around it to get by.
Even if you have permission from your city office, you still need to talk to your homeowner's association. This is especially true if you live in an exclusive neighborhood and pay yearly fees to the group. So, neighbors and association officers won't be able to say anything bad about you.
