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.
There are different sizes of metal roll-off dumpsters. When you choose a yarder that fits your needs, you can save a lot of money. You'll want to save as much money as possible, so choose a dumpster that is neither too big nor too small. For instance, if you end up with a small container, you may have to make several trips to get rid of all the trash, which can be expensive. So, how do you decide which size to pick?
Most dumpsters are 10 cubic yards, 20 cubic yards, 30 cubic yards, or 40 cubic yards. There are also sizes in between. Here are just a few examples of metal dumpsters and what they are used for: Here are just a few examples of metal dumpsters and what they are used for:
One-Room Remodel: For a one-room remodel, you probably won't need more than a 20-cubic yarder. This is because a 20-cubic yarder can already hold 6 truckloads, which is supposed to be enough for a regular-sized room. If it's a larger area, like the kitchen, and you need to get rid of cabinets and kitchen appliances, a 30-cubic yarder will be better.
Multiple-Room Remodeling: If you are cleaning up more than one room in the house, you can fit all of your trash in a 30-cubic yarder. After getting an estimate of the amount, we can help figure out the right size.
One Storage Area Cleanup: If you're cleaning out a storage area, like the attic, basement, or garage, choose a smaller dumpster, between 10 and 15 cubic yards. If you are getting rid of old furniture, on the other hand, you will need a bigger dumpster.
Whole-House Cleanup: If you're cleaning your whole house, and it's a normal-sized house and not a mansion, you might only need a 20-cubic-yard dumpster. This should be big enough to hold all the stuff you don't need anymore. Obviously, a bigger dumpster is safer if you think the trash will fill up about 9 truckloads.
Landscaping: Most landscaping projects don't make a lot of trash, so a 10-cubic or 15-cubic yarder is often a good choice. A lot of space is taken up by plants, tree branches, and soil.
Construction and Demolition: For construction waste like drywall and wood, you'll need at least a 30-cubic yard dumpster and maybe even a 40-cubic yarder.

The prices for dumpsters are actually quite fair. Even though the price to rent one of our dumpsters is the same no matter what size or type it is, there are other things that come into play.

Here are some of the most common types of dumpsters and how much they cost:

As you can see, the actual cost will depend on your needs, so you'll need to tell us about the size of the project, what it's for, and other details before we can tell you how much it will cost. Just give us a call, and we will figure out what you need.
This question doesn't have a single answer. In some states, you need a permit before you can rent a metal dumpster. Some people don't need one at all, except on very rare occasions. But if you want to be sure, you should talk to your homeowners association.
Or, why not talk to the city office in Milford Mill? In most cities in the United States, you don't need a permit to put a dumpster on your property, as long as you keep it on your property. On the other hand, if you put the dumpster on a public property, for example, you will probably need a permit. The permit will tell you what you can do and how much you will have to pay if you break any of its rules.
