If you're thinking about renting a roll-off dumpster but aren't sure what it can be used for, the tips below should help. Renting a container is a good way to get rid of large amounts of trash that can't be taken away by your normal trash service. If you're doing spring cleaning at your home or business, remodeling, or renovating your home, renting a can will make the job go more smoothly. But it's usually a good idea to call the local government office before having a canister sent. For what? Because you might need a permit if you want to put the dumpster on the street or near a house.
1. Don't put these things in a roll-off container until you've checked with your rental company:
2. Make sure you get a container that is the right size for the job.
3. Don't put anything next to, behind, or on the trash can.
4. Put the unit in a place that is easy to get to.
5. Don't fill the container too much. This means you would have to watch the "fill line."
6. Keep the area around the trash can clean to keep mice away.
Before you rent a roll-off container, you should think about what size you need based on your needs. Different sized roll-off bins will work best for different tasks.
You need a roll-off container that is neither too small nor too big for the job you want to do. There are four main sizes: ten, twenty, thirty, and forty yards. Each is better for different-sized projects.
This is the smallest size you can get, and it can hold ten cubic yards of trash. It will be great for a lot of different jobs.

Dumpster companies will bring empty bins to the place you specify. Once you've filled the bin with trash, they'll take it to a dump or recycling center. The cost of renting a roll-off container depends on a number of factors, such as the size of the container needed, the weight of the trash, the location of the landfill, and the cost of transportation.
The main factors used to figure out how much a dumpster costs in DC are:
Costs depend on the type of trash because waste management companies in the District of Columbia have to send out the right-sized container and find a good place to dump it. The fees at landfills and recycling plants are lower for things that break down and can be recycled than for things that don't break down or can't be recycled or are dangerous. Your price is directly affected by these things.
Gas and driver costs are included in the rental price. More fuel use, mostly because people have to drive farther to drop off items and get to landfills and recycling transfer stations, means that transportation costs will go up. Prices for canisters are also affected by the cost of fuel, since high fuel prices mean that gas costs will also be higher.
The overall size of the can depends on how much trash is in it, while the equipment on the hauler changes based on how much trash is in it. Costs are much higher for big dumpsters and complicated equipment than for small containers and simple equipment. You will need to know how much and how big your job's trash will be so you can ask for the right size roll-off container.
