Answers to some of the most common questions we get about renting a roll-off dumpster

If you want to rent a roll-off dumpster but aren't sure what it can be used for, the following tips should help. Renting a container is a good way to get rid of a lot of trash that can't be taken away by your regular trash service. If you need to do some spring cleaning at home or at your business, or if you are remodeling or renovating your home, renting a container can make the job easier. But before having a canister dropped off, it is usually a good idea to call the Troy city office. For what? Because you might need a permit if you want to put the dumpster on the street or near a house.

If you want to get a roll-off canister, these tips could be helpful.

1. Don't put these things in a roll-off container until you've talked to the company that rents them to you:

  • Ovens, fridges, deep freezers
  • Mattresses
  • Any cans of motor oil or paint
  • Antifreeze or gas
  • Gasoline or propane
  • Batteries
  • Grease or leftover food

2. Make sure you get a canister that is the right size for your project.

3. Don't put anything next to, behind, or on the container.

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

5. Never put too much in the canister. This means to keep an eye on the "fill line."

6. Keep the area around the unit clean so that pests don't move in.

Things that affect the price of trash containers in Troy

Homeowners, construction companies, and businesses in MO need to be aware of the things that affect the cost of trash cans. Given that different renters pay different amounts. Here are some of the things that will be taken into account when putting together your price quotes.

Customer Reviews

How trash is made

There are different kinds of trash that need to be thrown away. Houses make different kinds of trash than construction companies and businesses that make things. Most of the time, homeowners pay much less than businesses that are building. When the trash is heavy and bulky, the company that takes it away will charge you more. Most places of business also charge less for rent if renters recycle their trash. This is because recycling companies usually charge less than landfills to get rid of trash.

Dumpster Size

Bigger trash cans hold more trash, so it makes sense that they cost more to rent. On the other hand, smaller containers are much cheaper to rent than bigger ones because they are easier to take to the dump.

Fees at the dump

Some landfills charge a lot more than others to get rid of the same kind of trash. Most of the time, these rates vary from state to state and even from city to city. Your costs could be higher or lower depending on how much the landfill near your city charges.

The distance from the dump

Most of the time, the person who rents the dumpster pays for the costs of transporting it. Most of the time, renters who live far from the trash dump or recycling transfer stations pay more than those who live closer.

Even though there may be more, these are some of the most important things that affect prices.
