How much does it cost to rent a roll-off bin in Swansea?

There are a number of things that affect how much it costs to rent a dumpster in Swansea. These include the size of the dumpster, the type of debris, the weight of the debris, how long you rent it for, and how much your county charges for landfill fees. Most of the time, though, the price will be between $300 and $750. Give us a call if you want to know the exact price for everything.

Here are some tips that should make it easier to rent a dumpster.

If you want to rent a dumpster but aren't sure what you should put in it, the following suggestions should help. Renting a container is a great way to get rid of a lot of trash that can't be taken away by your regular trash service. If you're doing some spring cleaning at home or at your business or if you're remodeling or renovating your home, renting a container can make the job go more smoothly. But before getting a canister delivered, it's usually a good idea to call the Swansea city offices. For what? Because you might need a permit to put the roll-off dumpster on the street or even close to a building.

If you're thinking about getting a container for trash, the tips below should be very helpful.

1. Don't put any of the following things in a roll-off container before talking to the company that rented it to you:

  • Stoves, refrigerators, deep freezers
  • Mattresses
  • Any engine oil or paint containers
  • Antifreeze or gasoline
  • Gasoline or propane
  • Batteries
  • Grease or other food waste

2. Make sure you get a container that is the right size for the job.

3. Don't put anything near, behind, or on the container at any time.

4. Put the unit in a place that is easy to get to.

5. Don't fill the canister too much. To do this, you would have to pay attention to the "fill line."

6. Keep the area all around the unit tidy to prevent attracting vermin.

Advice on how to choose the right size trash can

Before you decide on a roll-off container size, it's a good idea to think about what you need. Different sized roll off containers are good for different tasks. You want a roll off container that is neither too small nor too big for the job you have in mind. There are four main sizes: 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards. Each is better for a different size job.

Ten Yard Size

Here's the smallest size, which is made to hold 10 cubic yards of trash. It works well for a lot of different jobs.

  • Garage of basement debris.
  • Removal of a deck that is as high as 250 square feet.
  • 1,500 square feet of roof shingles that need to be taken off.

Size Twenty Yards

This is the next sized canister out there and it can be considered for more moderate sized tasks.

  • Significant basement or garage debris removal.
  • Taking up the flooring and carpeting in a good home.
  • Between 300 and 400 square feet of deck will be taken away.
  • Getting rid of between 3,000 and 4,000 square feet of roof shingles.

Size of thirty yards

This size is often thought about for much bigger renovation sites.

  • Putting in big changes to a house.
  • Taking down a garage.

Size of Forty Yards

Here is the largest standard size, which can be used for projects that need to be strong.

  • Taking off roofs on commercial buildings.
  • Cleaning out places of business.
  • Putting on very large additions to a big house.

Customer Reviews

It can be hard to choose the right size, especially if you've never done it before. Don’t be stressed about calling for assistance if you’re having a tough time deciding which size is going to be best for your particular requirements.

How the prices for containers in Swansea are set

If you want to rent a roll-off dumpster in Swansea and want to know how much it will cost, you might want to compare prices from different rental companies.

But when you compare things, you want to make sure you're comparing like with like. To do this, you'll need to know how rental prices are figured out. Here are the most important things that affect your price:

1. Place

The price can depend on where you live. Most of the time, things cost more in Massachusetts's bigger cities than in its smaller towns.

2. Distance from the place of drop-off and disposal

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

3. Size and how much it can hold

The size of a canister is measured in cubic yards. The price will go up as the yardage goes up. Depending on how high the sides are, bins with the same yardage could hold very different amounts of trash. More volume is more expensive.

4. Disposal prices

The company you rented the trash can from has to get rid of the trash you put in it, which may cost different amounts. The price to rent a dumpster may also depend on the type of trash.
