Customer Reviews

Before you get a roll-off container, check Lexington's laws to see if you need a permit. There may be more instructions from Lexington about where to put the dumpster once it gets to your property.

Make sure you don't throw away things that the company renting you the dumpster or the landfill where the things you're throwing away won't let you. For example, most landfills won't let you dump all of the following items, either because of rules set by the rental company or because of rules set by the city, state, and federal governments:

  • Paints, paint thinners, solvents, and lacquers.
  • Compound cleaners and compounds used around the house.
  • Batteries.
  • Fuels.
  • Sticky things and resins.

If you think a substance might be dangerous, flammable, or smelly, you should check with your rental company before putting it in the canister to be safe.

How to Figure Out How Much a Dumpster Will Cost in Lexington

Dumpster companies bring empty bins to the place you tell them to. Once you've filled the bin with trash, they'll take it to a dump or recycling center. The cost of getting a roll-off container depends on a number of things, such as the size of the container needed, the weight of the trash, the location of the landfill, and the cost of transportation.

The main factors that go into figuring out how much a dumpster costs in Lexington are:

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

What kind of trash

The type of trash affects the price because North Carolina waste management services have to send out the right-sized bin and find a good place to dump it. When compared to non-decomposable, non-recyclable, and dangerous materials, landfills and recycling plants charge less for things that break down and can be reused. These things have a direct effect on what you charge.

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 go up because more fuel is used. This is mostly because drop-offs and trips to landfills and recycling transfer stations are farther away. Fuel prices also affect the price of roll-off containers because when gas prices go up, so do roll-off container prices.

Garbage volume and weight

The amount of trash determines the size of the trash can, while the weight of the trash determines the equipment used by the hauler. Large dumpsters and complicated tools cost more than small containers and easy-to-use tools. You might want to figure out how much and how big your job's trash is so you can ask for the right size bin.
