What is a roll off dumpster?

Roll off dumpsters are just the thing when your waste removal needs exceed the weight limit of your regularly scheduled weekly trash pickup. Our rectangular, open-top dumpsters with wheels are designed to be transported by special roll off trucks to and from your location efficiently. 

As a dumpster rental provider offering both residential and commercial construction dumpster rentals, we offer various dumpster sizes and rental costs to help you find the right fit for your project, even if it involves the removal of large volumes of bricks and concrete. Just contact us ahead of time so we can find the ideal dumpster size and price quote for your needs. 

What are the advantages of a roll off dumpster?

Besides being conveniently delivered to and from your location, open-top dumpsters significantly increase how much junk you can remove from your property in one go. That means you don’t have to spread out taking out the trash over several weeks so you can stay within the allotment for your weekly curbside pickup. An open-top makes it easy to place items inside.

You can also dispose of larger materials resulting from spring cleaning and major home improvement projects. All our dumpsters are durably constructed with heavy-duty materials to handle the load. 

Finally, wheels make it easy to move roll off dumpsters from one end of your property to the other, even when they’re full.

  • 30-yard dumpster: Holding nine pickup trucks’ worth of waste, a 30-yard open-top dumpster is appropriate for larger-scale residential cleanouts and home remodeling projects like a garage removal or a home siding replacement. This size also works for some commercial construction projects.
