Why Should You Rent a Dumpster in Delaware?

If you want to achieve effective bulk cleanup at home or work, renting a dumpster is an essential step in the process.

Whether you're downsizing before a move, cleaning up debris from a construction or demolition site, doing spring cleaning, cleaning up after a storm, or redoing your landscaping - getting a wide dumpster for your cleaning project is a more thoughtful way to keep your area clean, safe, and organized and save money in the process.

When renting dumpsters at Sourgum Waste, you can have a less stressful cleaning experience. We have dumpsters for all types of projects, from small household cleanings to large renovation projects and everything in between; when you need dumpsters for ongoing projects with flexible weight limits and rental periods, Sourgum Waste has got you covered.

Important Dumpster Rental and Trash Disposal Tips

The waste material you're disposing of is probably the most important factor to consider before renting a dumpster, because certain mixtures of materials are not allowed, or cost-effective, to be disposed of together. An example is gravel which mustn't be combined with any other material when disposed of.

Here are the types of materials that can be disposed of together:

  • Construction & demolition debris

  • Non-toxic household items

  • Organic brush & branch

  • Roofing (shingles etc.)

  • Clean concrete

  • Concrete and brick mix

  • Concrete with rebar

  • Asphalt

  • Dirt

Another reason the type of waste is important is that it influences the weight of the dumpster, which contributes to its pricing. There's a weight limit for each dumpster type and size; the heavier the dumpster, the higher its disposal cost. This is why it usually makes sense to rent both a construction and a concrete dumpster if you have large amounts of concrete because the concrete would drive up the cost of your construction dumpster too much.

Unsure which material type to select? Our material selection guide provided on the roll-off ordering page helps simplify the material selection process, and it is readily available. You can also request a free consultation through our Contact Us page to understand how much it'll cost to dispose of a particular type of material.

Before renting a dumpster, you must also determine the size of the dumpster you will need for your cleaning project because you are charged based on not only your location and the type of material to be disposed of but also the size and weight limit of the dumpster. Each dumpster size comes with a predetermined weight limit but you can customize it to fit your needs.

Getting the wrong size could risk you going over the weight limit if you get a smaller size to dispose of heavier waste, thereby increasing your price to pay. Conversely, you do not want to pay double for more space than you need when your rent a bigger-sized dumpster and use only half the space.

Our dumpster sizes range from 10-yard dumpsters to 40-yard:

The 10-yard dumpsters are just right for small remodeling projects or medium-sized clean-outs like single-room renovations, basement or garage clean-outs, cleaning up the waste from a 250 sq ft deck replacement, and shingle roof removal of 1,500 square feet. They hold 10 cubic yards of material, translating into 4 pickup trucks full of debris.

The 20-yard dumpsters are perfect for medium-sized remodeling projects, multiple-room renovation, multiple-room clean-outs, a large deck or roof replacement, yard cleanup with small trees, major clean-outs such as carpet or furniture removal, and concrete and heavy debris removal. The 20-yard dumpsters hold 20 cubic yards of material, translating into 8 pickup trucks full of debris.

Our 30-yard dumpsters are majorly used for construction and demolition projects. They are preferable for major home renovation projects, new home constructions, large estate clean-outs, and tree and storm debris removal. They hold 30 cubic yards of material, translating into 12 pickup trucks full of debris.

Finally, our largest size, the 40-yard dumpsters, is used for large and ongoing projects at construction sites like new construction, commercial building clean-outs, and commercial landscaping projects. They are most suitable for commercial or industrial purposes. They hold 40 cubic yards of material, translating into 16 pickup trucks full of debris. These larger dumpsters are not as readily available, so make sure you check with our customer success associates whether this size is what you need and whether it is available for your time frame and service location.

Regulation for waste disposal in Delaware is governed by the state, in a manner that protects humans and the environment. We abide by the regulations of any place we service, including Delaware and the counties of New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. This is why we do not allow all items in our dumpsters. Read our comprehensive guide for what can and cannot be thrown into our dumpsters.

What Is Hazardous Waste and How to Dispose of It

Oil filters, radioactive material, chemical products, wet paint, solvents, herbicides & pesticides, flammable liquids, motor oil, antifreeze, medical wastes, batteries, asbestos, petroleum-contaminated waste, and propane tanks are all examples of hazardous waste, which cannot be placed in our dumpsters.

The Delaware Solid Waste Authority operates Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Events at different locations throughout the year and weekly throughout locations in the state. Delaware residents can bring their HHW to the event free of charge.

Not Sure? Compare Disposal Companies

Comparing disposal companies and their services helps you select the best that works for you. Since prices, dumpster sizes, and location access vary per supplier, comparing their services eases off the uncertainty in the decision-making process.

When comparing service providers, make sure to ask for the full pricing (including extra fees - a lot of competitors will announce a low fee and then tack on overages) for a comparable size, weight limit, and rental period. You are entitled to the full information before you make a decision!

Additionally, check the provider's reviews and make sure that their clients are consistently satisfied with the service and willing to vouch for them.
