We've compiled our Renting a Dumpster Guide to help address any questions you may have about renting a dumpster. We hope you find it useful:
Renting a dumpster is the solution for large-scale rubbish disposal. Perhaps you've already heard about this through your pals or another source, but let's go over the topic in further depth. Leaving a pile of garbage in your yard is not only an eyesore, but it may also be against the laws of your homeowners association or city office about waste disposal.
The Dumpster Rental Guys offers roll-off dumpster rentals in the Columbia area. Continue reading to learn more about roll-off container rentals.
Roll-off containers of 10 cubic yards may accommodate nearly four pickup trucks worth of debris. Typical applications include modest bathroom or kitchen renovations, garage or basement cleanouts, small roof replacements up to 1,500 square feet, and minor deck removals up to 500 square feet.
20 yard containers can carry roughly eight pickup truck loads of waste. Typical applications include carpet or flooring removal for a large house, garage or basement cleanouts, roof replacements up to 3000 square feet, and deck removals up to 400 square feet.
30 yard containers can carry roughly 12 pickup loads worth of waste. Large home extensions, new home building, garage demolition, siding or window replacements for a modest to medium-sized house are common applications.
40 yard containers can carry roughly 16 pickup trucks worth of waste. They are frequently employed for projects such as significant house renovations or construction, business clean outs, and siding or window replacement for a large residence.
The size of the project is a determining factor when renting a roll-off container. Consequently, if your container is too large relative to the amount of waste to be discarded, you may wind up spending extra.
Choose between 10-, 15-, 20-, 30-, and 40-cubic-yard containers when it comes to the sizes of metal dumpsters. Some of them are categorized as heavy-duty to accommodate the additional weight, especially if the waste includes concrete, soil, and drywall. There are other intermediate sizes, such as five cubic yards and fifteen cubic yards.
Trash Removal, Garage, and One-Room Remodeling: If you are doing a spring cleaning or a remodeling of a single room, you should be able to fit all your debris into a 20-cubic yard dumpster. However, if you are remodeling your kitchen and need to dispose of appliances and cabinets, a larger dumpster would be more appropriate. A one-room remodeling project will not generate more than 10 truckloads of rubbish, so a 20-cubic yard dumpster will suffice, unless you are rebuilding your kitchen and disposing of your kitchen cabinets, in which case you can choose a larger yarder, such as the 30-cubic yard dumpster.
General Construction or Multiple-Room Renovation and Remodeling: For general construction or multiple-room renovation and remodel, you may pick between a 20-yard or 30-yard metal dumpster. We can assist you in selecting the appropriate size, which will depend on the amount of trash in your yard or home.
One Storage Area Cleanout: If you will find primarily junk in your attic, garage, or basement, you do not require a dumpster larger than 15 cubic yards.
If you are demolishing your deck or shed, or cleaning your entire home, a 15- or 20-cubic-yard aluminum container will suffice. This should be sufficient for storing all of your household rubbish. Obviously, a larger dumpster will be safer if you anticipate the amount of rubbish to be around 9 truckloads.
A 10-cubic or 15-cubic yard dumpster is usually a wise choice for a landscaping or yard clean-up activity.
Major Projects and Construction: A 40-yard container may be the optimal solution for debris of a moderate size. Concrete and bricks, however, require a dumpster with a heavy-duty frame to accommodate their weight. Due to the size of these jobs, either a 30-cubic or 40-cubic yard dumpster is advised.

We must dispel the idea that dumpster leasing is pricey. Sure, it will cost you a few hundred dollars for a home project, but you must calculate the cost-benefits of hiring our service by considering the amount of effort, petrol, and time you would waste if you dispose of the debris yourself.
Listed below are some reasons why the cost of a dumpster may increase:
Consider the following common dumpster uses that can also effect the price:
As it is, the price will not be the same for everyone; therefore, if you want specifics, please describe your project, including its size, what you plan to dispose of, and where you plan to set the yarder.

Despite the fact that not everyone will be required to obtain a permit for a roll off rental business, it is essential that you have all the necessary paperwork in order, particularly if a significant restoration project is involved. It may not be essential to obtain a permit in order to rent a roll-off container, but it is prudent to have the necessary paperwork on hand just in case. Typically, a permission is required if the dumpster must be positioned outside of your property, such as on a residential street. Considering that a dumpster is a sizable container that is typically not parked on private property, you should determine whether a permit is required in your circumstance.
Whether you are required to obtain a permission relies entirely on local ordinances. Most cities in the United States do not require a permit provided the dumpster does not block access to private or public property. If not, a permit may be required. It should also be noted that merely applying for a permit does not guarantee acceptance, especially if the dumpster you intend to rent will block a substantial portion of the street and impede traffic. Your HOA or the local rental agency might also present you with a list of tasks you must do prior to beginning the remodeling.
