How to get answers to the most common questions about renting roll-off dumpsters

The size of a dumpster is based on how many cubic yards of stuff it can hold. For instance, a 10-yard container will be able to hold 10 yards of trash or dumpster contents. Most of the time, the sizes of canisters range from 10 yards to 40 yards in 10-yard steps. Figuring out how much trash a job will make can be hard, so it's usually best to call a canister rental company in Plymouth and ask them to help you figure out the right size for the job you're doing. Here are some other ideas for renting that may work for you:

Keep in mind that if the roll-off container is going to be put on a road, you might need to get a permit from the city offices in Plymouth.

If the roll-off container needs to be put on your property, make sure it doesn't go on grass or soft ground. The units are very heavy, so if they aren't held up properly, they can cause a lot of damage.

Even if the roll off is going to be put on a concrete or asphalt driveway, you might want to put plywood under the rollers to protect the driveway from wear and tear.

Things You Shouldn't Put in a Roll Off Container

  • Paint cans
  • Motor oil or automotive fluids
  • Batteries
  • Medicines or waste from health care
  • Anything that has freon, oil, or gas in it
  • Fertilizers for the lawn or chemicals for the pool
  • Bleach or cleaners for the house

When the trash or other waste from your project has been put in the roll-off container, you can call the company that rented it to you and have it picked up and taken to a recycling center, transfer station, or landfill.

What affects the price of a trash can in Plymouth?

The Guys Who Rent Out Dumpsters If you want to rent a roll-off dumpster in Plymouth and want to know how much it will cost, you might want to compare prices from different rental companies.

Customer Reviews

Still, you need to make sure you're comparing apples to apples when you make comparisons. To do this, you'll need to know how to figure out how much rent costs. Here are the main things that will affect the price of your service:

1. Where it is

The price can change based on where you live. Most of the time, prices in big cities in Wisconsin are higher than prices in smaller cities.

2. Distance from the place where you drop off and throw away

If the rental company has to drive a long way to get to where you want to put the unit or where the trash will be dumped, you can expect to pay more than someone who lives closer.

3. Size and how much it can hold

The sizes of containers are given in cubic yards. The more yards you buy, the more you have to pay. Depending on how high the sides are, canisters with the same yardage may hold different amounts. More volume is more expensive.

4. Disposal prices

The company you rent the dumpster from has to get rid of the trash you put in it, which can cost different amounts. The type of trash can also change how much it costs to rent a space.
