How much Does a Construction Dumpster Rental Cost?

An average construction dumpster rental price is between $285 to $1,068. Since demolition and construction debris have higher disposal fees than residential waste, these containers are more expensive than residential bins.


Are there any materials that may incur additional fees?

The disposal facility may charge a per-item disposal fee for mattresses, tires, large/bulky items of electronic waste, and items containing freon. The customer will be charged any per-item dump fees.

Is it possible to determine how much debris weighs?

A gross weight is recorded at the disposal facility after the truck drives onto a scale. The truck returns to its starting point after emptying the dumpster. The second scale measures tare weight (truck and dumpster).

As a result, the debris in the dumpster weighs what is left over from the first and second weights (gross-tare). The state measures and weighs bureau regulates the scales.

What materials are prohibited?

The material includes dirt, hazardous waste, industrial waste, oil filters, herbicides, chemical products, pesticides, solvents, radioactive material, paint cans, other flammable liquids, propane tanks, aerosol cans, motor oil, lubricating/hydraulic oil, transmission oil, oil filters, and contaminated oils, appliances, antifreeze, petroleum contaminated soil, tires, computers, batteries, monitors, fluorescent tubes, medical waste, railroad ties, animals, asbestos, barrels, all liquids.

Are there any weight limits on my dumpster?

Yes, there is a weight limit on my dumpster. The weight limit on each dumpster size indicates how much debris you can dispose of without exceeding your quote. You will be charged an additional fee if you exceed your weight limit. If unsure, call us at (610)679-8449.

Do dumpsters have doors?

Yes, we provide open-top containers with a rear door, also known as roll-off dumpsters. You fill your dumpster to the top, we haul it away, and we deliver it on special trucks.

What size dumpster do I need?

Depending on the project you are working on, you’ll need a different size dumpster. If you are doing a small home remodeling debris project, you may only need a 10-yard dumpster. Please call our customer service team and explain your project so we can assist you with choosing the right dumpster.

Is there a proper way to load a dumpster?

When filling a dumpster, try to load it evenly. If you do this, the dumpster can hold more debris, and you won’t have to worry about overloading it. The hauler should not pick up the dumpster if items hang over or stick above the side of the container. It is important to note that overfilling your container may result in an additional fee.

Can I put anything in a dumpster?

No, you cannot put anything in a dumpster. Debris from construction materials and household projects can be disposed of in your dumpster. Our dumpsters do not permit hazardous materials, including flammable materials, toxic materials, and hazardous chemicals.

Can you tell me how to load my dumpster?

It would help if you placed all debris inside a dumpster while loading it. It would be best to throw anything sticking through the dumpster’s edge or over the sides away. The driver cannot haul overloaded dumpsters, which may delay picking up your yard waste.

Is a permit required for a dumpster?

Permits are typically required only when dumpsters are placed on public property such as streets, easements, or sidewalks.

You should contact your local municipality or the public works department to determine what permits are required for your specific situation. Even within a town, permit requirements can vary!


What is the estimated delivery date of my dumpster?

The delivery of dumpsters typically occurs between 6 am. and 6 pm. on weekdays, depending on availability. Since drivers’ routes are dynamic and fuel-efficient, we cannot provide an ETA.

A permanent service dumpster will not be delivered until the existing contract expires. The delivery of your dumpster will take one to three business days after you sign up if you don’t have a current service.

Is my presence required for delivery and pick-up?

You don’t need to be present at the time of delivery or pick-up. You will instruct the driver to drop it off at the location you specify when you order.

Is my dumpster picked up automatically?

Roll-off dumpsters aren’t picked up until we receive a notification. Please schedule a pick-up online at least one week in advance to ensure your rental period ends on the last day.

We will charge you for each additional day you keep the dumpster if you do not contact us by the last day of your rental period.

Do I need to be there when it is delivered/removed?

Delivery or removal of the roll-off dumpster rental requires someone on site but is not necessary. Using the best judgment, the driver will place the roll-off dumpster where it is most accessible. Relocation charges will be your responsibility. The customer must provide unobstructed access when the roll-off dumpster is picked up. Accessible dumpsters will incur wasted trip fees.

Roll-off versus front-load dumpsters: what’s the difference?

Yard roll-off dumpster is used primarily for remodeling, construction, roofing, clean-up, and yard waste disposal. Rental periods for these bins range from one week to two weeks, making them ideal for one-time projects.

A front-loaded dumpster is a covered bin designed to hold trash for regular pick-up weekly, biweekly, or monthly. With front-load dumpster rental services, you’ll benefit from a flexible agreement for the length of time that you’ll need the dumpster.
