The Best Prices for Renting a Rolloff Dumpster in Maine, IL for Construction or Residential Dumpsters

How Do I Know What Size Dumpster I Need?

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 construction waste 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.

Metal dumpsters come in standard sizes of 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards. All of those sizes should be enough to meet any need. The sizes of these dumpsters are measured in cubic yards, which makes it easy to remember how much trash goes in each one. However, when choosing the right container size, you also need to think about the type of trash and the size of the area. To find the right size, you need to know how much trash you have, what kind of trash it is, and how big the area is.

If you choose the right size dumpster, you won't have to make as many trips or rent another one to fit all your trash. This will save you money and time. For example, a 10-cubic-yard dumpster is the same size as three pick-up truckloads. Now, if you want to do a big renovation or demolition project, you'll need a big container, like the 40-yard dumpster.

A 10-cubic-yard dumpster can hold the trash from three pickup trucks. This size dumpster should be enough for small-room clean-up projects. This is the right size container to use when planning a roofing project or a kitchen remodel. This is the best size dumpster for small jobs, like cleaning out your attic or basement or doing some small landscaping. This can hold up to six full loads of trash from a regular pick-up truck. It's perfect if you want to remodel a room or plan to put a roof on a house.

For example, heavy-duty dumpsters are made to handle the weight and abuse of things like concrete and bricks. We can tell you how much a roll-off container will cost to send to your property. For comparison's sake, the maximum weight that a 10-cubic yard container can hold is 10,000 pounds less than that of a 40-yard container.

We can't say enough about how important it is to only throw away as much trash as your dumpster can hold when you rent one. We have to estimate the weight of the trash or debris by looking at it or hearing what you have to say when you call us. Call our phone number so you can tell us everything we need to know about your specific problem.

Renting a dumpster will cost you

The table rates you see on websites are just an estimate of how much it will cost to rent a roll off dumpster based on its size. Just tell us how much you want to spend and we'll find a dumpster that fits your needs. But it should be said that the total price will depend on more than just the size. It will also depend on what's in it, what kind it is, and other costs like permits and sanitary landfill fees.

Here are the different kinds of roll-off containers you can rent if you decide to do so.

  • Remodeling projects on building sites
  • projects on roofs
  • Landscape jobs
  • home cleanouts
  • any kind of trash removal

The main thing that affects how much it costs to rent a container is how much trash you are putting in it. Look at the different kinds of things you can put in the container. If you throw away dangerous things, you might also have to pay extra.

  • roof and shingles
  • dirt and yard waste 
  • concrete 
  • construction waste 
  • household trash

Do I need a permit to rent a dumpster for my Maine job site?

Do yourself a favor and call Maine to find out more about how to get a dumpster permit, how much it will cost, and how long it will take to process. Sadly, there are rules about renting roll off containers. Even our business had to get licenses before we could start running. If you do this, you will still be able to use your driveway while your project is going on.

This is also something that business owners can do—they can park their rented dumpster on a public road so that their customers can still use the parking lot while construction is going on. Only if you want to put your rented dumpster on a public property, you may need to get a permit. Have your permit ready ahead of time to avoid having to wait and to make sure you will be fined if you park illegally. Aside from breaking a local law, you are also breaking the transport code, which says that you can't block traffic.

No longer will you need a city permit to put a rented dumpster in your own driveway. Again, the best way to get all the answers is to go to your local city office.
