While you’re looking into dumpster rentals, one of the first things you want to know is: ‘What is the price tag for renting a roll off dumpster?’ While nothing is set in stone, we can get a decent picture of what to expect when you factor in a few different items. Location, size of the dumpster, time frame needed, weight of materials deposited, and type of materials are the primary sources of price change for dumpster rentals.
Let’s Start With Location
Local dump fees average anywhere from $30 to $125 per ton. Then you need to factor in the time of travel, time waiting in line and gas prices. These costs quickly add up when you are attempting to dispose of your waste. Luckily, when you rent a dumpster, these costs are automatically considered in the price for the dumpster in question. Another location factor is where you plan to place the dumpster. Typically, it must be placed on your property. If that isn’t possible, then your local dumpster rental should be able to walk you through your best placement for the job at hand and any permits you would need to acquire. It saves you valuable time and frustration while allowing you to focus on more important matters.
Size of the Roll off Dumpster
There are many sizes to choose from when it comes to rentals. We always advise to seek out a free quote when making this decision. For your everyday smaller projects that need a 10 Yard Dumpster you are looking at a price range of $200 to $575. From there, you can expect an average of $50 increase per size as you make your way up to the large 40 yard Dumpster that ranges from $350 and up.
Some projects can be knocked out in a day or two, while others take weeks. Big or small, knowing the length of time needed to finish a job is not always the easiest to accomplish. With dumpster rentals you have professionals at your fingertips to help calculate how long you will need your rental for and the information at hand if you need to extend or reduce the time allotted. When discussing your options, always ask for the “What ifs” Of time and cost. Dumpster rentals also cut out the need to verify dumping timeframes with your local waste management locations. They work with you to find the best time frames available.
Type and Weight of Materials
The most common misconception of dumpster rental is if you can fit it in the dumpster, it’s all the same. Unfortunately, this is incorrect. Even if you manage to cram 2 tons of waste into a 1 ton container, the pricing is based on the expected weight you plan to use. If you are a construction company looking to dispose of heavy material such as brick, cinder blocks, or roofing material then you may want to focus on how much a dumpster can handle in weight instead of the size of the dumpster. The type of material can also affect the final cost of rentals due to the special care needed to dispose of the item properly. There are available lists of what materials can affect pricing and what you can expect. Let the professionals worry about the specifics. Just explain your project and materials and we do the rest.
