Customer Reviews

When placing a roll off container on your property, avoid grassy or soft surfaces. They're heavy, thus improper support could cause considerable damage.

Use plywood under the roll off's wheels to protect a concrete or asphalt driveway.

  • Automotive fluids or oil
  • Batteries

When your project's trash or debris is loaded into the roll off container, call your rental company and they'll carry it to a recycling facility, transfer station, or landfill.

  • Remodeling a bathroom or kitchen

A 20-yard container may hold 20 cubic yards of trash, or 10 pickup loads. Cost, capacity, and tiny footprint make this the most common size.

Mechanicsburg Dumpster Costs

Various factors affect Mechanicsburg rental rates. While most companies offer free estimates, you should know how rental rates are calculated. Here are several price-affecting factors.

Container dimensions

Bigger containers carry more waste volume and weight. Big container hauling and dumping need work. Larger canisters cost more than smaller ones to rent.

Landfill Prices

Some towns and states charge more for dumping at local landfills. One city's dumping fee may be higher than another's. This cost is factored into container rental pricing. Most Pennsylvania roll-off dumpster companies quote this fee.


If you live far from a recycling center or rubbish dump, you might expect to pay more than someone who lives closer to where the container will be discarded.


Construction garbage is heavier than domestic waste. Therefore, construction trash removal costs higher. If construction trash is recyclable, recycling costs less than a landfill.

Size, kind of waste, distance from the disposal, and local landfill fees all affect dumpster rental pricing.
