How much does a dumpster cost?

The cost for renting a dumpster varies on two variables: the zip code you need the dumpster delivered and the size of the dumpster that you need for your project.

The price is calculated on a base price that is for a 12-day rental period (This is a regular rental period with Samson Disposal – other companies rent it for less periods of time). The cost of the truck getting it to the desired zip code and the cost of bringing it back once the rental is over. Another cost involved is the fee that needs to be paid at the dump.  Everything is already calculated and charged with no extra or hidden fees when you hire Samson Disposal for your dumpster rental.
