If you’re ordering a dumpster for the first time or haven’t needed one in a while, it’s normal to have questions. Don’t worry — from choosing a container size to scheduling delivery, we’ll help make renting a dumpster an easy process.

Step 1: Pick a Dumpster Size

Selecting the right container size is one of the most important steps in the dumpster rental process. You don’t want to overload your bin and have items hanging over the sides, but you also don’t want to overspend on a dumpster that's too large.

The most common roll off dumpster sizes across the country are 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 yard bins. However, sizes will vary by market, so check what's available in your area. Let us know what you're tossing, and our team will recommend the right size for your debris.

Common Sizes for Specific Projects

Choosing the right dumpster size is easier if you know how much debris your project will generate and how much it will weigh. Below, you’ll find a helpful breakdown of what sizes we often recommend for certain projects — from removing dirt to tearing down a building.

Small Remodels & Cleanouts:A 10 or 15 yard dumpster is typically ideal for dirt removal, minor remodels, single-room cleanouts and heavy debris disposal.

Mid-Sized Construction and Repair:Consider a 15 or 20 yard bin for roofing jobs, multi-room cleanouts, landscaping projects and general construction.

Large-Scale Remodels and Cleanouts:Use a 30 or 40 yard container for demolition, large renovations, bulky item removal and large-scale construction.

Step 2: Get Quotes

To get an upfront price, you'll first need to provide some information to get an accurate rate. When you request a quote, have the following details on hand:

•Your delivery address and zip code.

•The type and amount of debris.

•The date you need a dumpster and for how long.

•Any unique requirements for the project.

Variable Pricing:Keep in mind: many other companies use a variable price model. This means your quoted price is often the base rate without any added fees that will appear on your final invoice. As a result, the price you pay is often higher than your quoted cost.

Unexpected Fees With Other Companies:

•Mileage and fuel

•Administrative fees

•Disposal fees

•Franchise fees

•Debris weight

All-inclusive Pricing:With us, you’ll receive an all-inclusive price quote. Our dumpster prices are bundled to ensure that the cost you are quoted is the price you’ll see on your final invoice — as long as you don’t incur added fees, which we explain upfront so you can avoid them.

Our Straightforward Prices Include:



•Disposal fees

•Rental period

•Covered weight limit

Step 3: Review Details

Our team is professionally trained to answer any questions you might have about your dumpster rental. We’re well-versed in the disposal regulations in your area, and we’ll take the time to review them with you when you order.

Step 4: Place an Order

When you're ready to order your dumpster, request a quote online to get started. Here are a few tips to help the ordering process go smoothly:

•Tell us your zip code, debris type and requested dumpster size.

•Pick a delivery date — we recommend placing an order several days before you need a dumpster.

•Select a delivery location, free of obstructions.

•Have a credit card ready to finalize your order.

How to Prepare for Delivery

After you place your order, we can typically deliver your dumpster within five business days. We’ll take detailed placement instructions so you don't need to call off work or rearrange your schedule for your dumpster's delivery.

Clear the Way:Make sure there's enough space for your dumpster, as well as no low-hanging wires or tree branches near the delivery area.

Mark the Spot:Consider putting down plywood, cones or other indicators so the driver knows where to place the dumpster.

Avoid Prohibited Items:Learn more about accepted and prohibited items to avoid unexpected dumpster disposal fees.

Step 5: Schedule Pickup

When you approach the end of your rental agreement, we’ll send email reminders to schedule your pickup. Once you’ve finished loading your dumpster with debris, just email us back, schedule a pickup online with your address and pickup date.

As you decide on your pickup day, keep these things in mind:

•Be prepared for your dumpster to be removed at any time throughout the day.

•We’ll do our best to provide a time of arrival, but our routes are based on fuel efficiency.

•Make sure your dumpster is accessible and not overloaded with debris.
