How to Answer the Most Frequently Asked Questions About Canister Rentals

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, container sizes vary by 10 yards, from 10 yards to 40 yards. Estimating how much trash a job will make can be hard, so it's usually a good idea to call a canister rental company in Siler City and ask them to help you figure out what size will work best for the job you're doing. Here are some more ideas for renting that could help you:

Keep in mind that if the roll-off container is going to be put on a street, you may need to get a permit from the Siler City city offices.

If the roll-off container is going to be put on your property, make sure it is not put on grass or soft ground. The units are very heavy, so they can do a lot of damage if they are not held up correctly.

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

Things You Can't Throw in a Roll-off Bin

  • Paint cans
  • Motor oil or automotive fluids
  • Batteries
  • Anything with freon, oil, or gas, medicines, or medical waste
  • Chemicals for your yard or swimming pool
  • Bleach or cleaners for the house

Customer Reviews

Once you've cleaned up your project and put the trash or debris in the roll-off container, you can call the rental company and they'll come get it and take it to the recycling center, transfer station, or landfill.

What size dumpster should you choose?

Most dumpster rental services in your area offer a range of sizes to meet your needs. The size of a roll-off bin is measured in cubic yards. Most of the time, the sizes of Accessible range from 10 to 40 yards. Here are some details about the sizes:

Ten Yard

Ten cubic yards of trash can fit in a 10-yard container. There's no perfect way to pick the right size, but here are some ideas for how this size can be used.

This is perfect for:

  • 250 square feet deck removal
  • Garage or cellar clean out debris
  • Remodeling a bathroom or a small kitchen
  • 1500 square feet of roof tiles with one layer

Twenty Yard

The amount of trash that can fit in a 20-yard container is 20 cubic yards, which is about 10 pickup truck loads. This is the most common size because it is cheap, holds a lot, and doesn't take up much space.

What's great about a 20-yarder:

  • Between 2500 and 3000 square feet of single-layer roofing shingle waste
  • Cleaning up junk from the garage, cellar, or loft
  • Between 300 and 400 square feet of deck debris
  • Taking out the carpeting and flooring from a larger home

Thirty Yard

Also, a 30-yarder is great for:

  • Garage demolition
  • Building a new house
  • Large home addition
  • Replace the outside of a small to medium-sized home or all of its windows.

Forty Yard

The amount of trash that can fit in a 40-yard container is 40 cubic yards. This unit is a great choice for large residential projects, industrial uses, and commercial clean-ups.

Also, a 40-yarder works well for:

  • Office or business building needs to be cleaned up.
  • Business roof tear off
  • Any bigger house needs new siding or windows.
  • Large amounts of trash, cardboard, or waste from building work

How to Choose Siler City Dumpster Rates

Rent prices in Siler City are affected by many different things. Even though most service providers will give you a free estimate, it's important to know how rental rates are usually set. Here are some of the biggest factors that affect prices.

Customer Reviews

Size of the Container You Rent

Obviously, trash cans with more space and weight can hold more trash. Big dumpsters also need more work to move and get rid of. Because of this, renting bigger containers costs more than renting smaller ones.

Rates at Landfills

Many cities and states have trash dumps that charge more than others to dump trash there. One city's dumping fee may be a lot higher than what another city charges. This fee is usually taken into account when figuring out how much it costs to rent a trash can. Most companies in North Carolina that rent roll-off dumpsters include this cost in the prices they quote.

Cost of getting around

Transportation costs can change depending on how far away you are from a recycling center or landfill. If you live far away, you can expect your price quotes to be higher than someone who lives closer to where the can will be thrown away.

Kind of a Waste

Most trash from homes is a lot lighter than trash from building sites. Because of this, it will cost you more to get rid of waste from building projects. But the opposite might be true if the construction waste is recyclable, since it costs less to get rid of recyclable materials at a recycling center than at a landfill.

When you rent a debris container, you should know that the price will depend a lot on the size of the unit, the type of trash, how far it is from where the trash will be dumped, and how much the local landfill costs.
