What Does a Roll Off Quote Include?

When you rent a roll off container through Discount Dumpster you will receive a flat rate. That includes:

  • Delivery
  • Pickup
  • Hauling
  • Environmental

Some companies will quote you a cost to deliver the dumpster to you and stop there. Then when the dumpster is hauled away and dumped there will be additional charges for disposal, fuel, environmental, etc. Understand what the final cost will be so that a roll off dumpster doesn’t break your budget.

Dumpster Rental Cost

The cost of a container rental ranges in price from $250 – $600 and a lot of that depends on different factors such as:

  • Dumpster Size
  • Location of Rental
  • Weight of Debris
  • Permit

What Dumpster Size Should you Rent?

Whether it is your first time renting a dumpster or a contractor who uses containers regularly it is best to know what size will work for your specific project. We offer many different sizes but the most common sizes are:

15 Yard

  • National Average Cost: $300.00
  • Dimensions: 12′ long x 6′ wide x 4′ high
  • Average Weight Limit: Up To 2 Tons

30 yard

  • National Average Cost: $450.00
  • Dimensions: 22′ long x 8′ wide x 6′ high
  • Average Weight Limit: Up to 4-5 Tons

20 Yard

  • National Average Cost: $385.00
  • Dimensions: 22′ long x 8′ wide x 4′ high
  • Average Weight Limit: Up To 2-3 Tons

40 yard

  • National Average Cost: $385.00
  • Dimensions: 22′ long x 8′ wide x 4′ high
  • Average Weight Limit: Up To 2-3 Tons

The name of the dumpster comes from the amount of cubic volume of the container. For example, a 15 yard dumpster fits up to 15 cubic yards of waste, making larger projects a breeze. While the aforementioned dumpsters are the most common sizes available, there are also 20 cubic yard, 30 cubic yard, and 40 cubic yard containers available. Please be advised that the size and prices of each container are location specific. 

Dumpster Rental Cost

Different dumpster sizes include a specific amount of weight in the cost of the rental. Be sure to ask about the weight limit so you are aware of this prior to throwing material away. When we take your trash to the local dump, the trash truck is weighed in. The driver then dumps all of the trash out at the dump and receives an additional weight ticket when they exit the facility. The difference between the two weight tickets is the total weight in the container.

Common terminology for weight when renting a roll off is tonnage. For example, most 30 yard containers hold up to 4 tons of debris. One ton of weight is equal to 2,000 pounds. When we dispose of debris at the dump, we pay on an agreed upon price per ton. If you are under the specified weight limit on your invoice, there is no additional cost what so ever. If the weight limit is above the specified limit, Discount Dumpster pays this fee and then recoups the cost from the customer. This rate is usually a pro rated $65.00/ton, but varies based on which transfer station is closest to you.

Do I Need a Permit to Rent a Dumpster?

The best way to avoid a permit is to place the roll off container on your private property. The majority of time the dumpster is placed on the driveway which allows for simple disposal and quicker removal. In some cases, a permit will be required if you plan to place the container on a street or city right-of-way. These permits are issued by the local city’s planning and building department. Not sure if you need a permit? Give us a call and a representative will help you understand the permitting process.
