Dumpster Selection Tips

When selecting the right dumpster for your project, there are numerous factors you should consider, from size and materials to the space needed. Read our dumpster selection tips below to make sure to make the right decision for your project!

Selecting the right size dumpster begins with having a solid understanding of the amount of waste you are going to be disposing of. For most projects, this is relatively simple to judge on your own, but you can always consult us to ensure you are making the best decision.

In the case where you are in between two dumpster sizes, we recommend you choose the larger of the two. This is to give you flexibility in disposing of your waste and prevent a situation where you need to rent an additional dumpster to fit everything. From our experience, it is always to pay a little more for a larger dumpster than to pay for 2 smaller dumpsters.

Before you simply estimate your total waste and select one dumpster to dispose of it all, you need to more closely examine what materials you are disposing of. This is due to a few reasons.

First, state laws and regulations prohibit certain materials to be disposed of together, as this poses environmental risks. In order to avoid contamination fees associated with these laws, you need to carefully determine what materials you are disposing of and whether you need to rent separate dumpsters for those materials.

Second, you are not allowed to place any hazardous materials in a dumpster as this similarly poses harmful risks to both people and the environment. Hazardous materials include wet paints, electronics, batteries, propane tanks, and more. We understand that these things may be difficult to determine on your own, so don't hesitate to contact Sourgum Waste for more information and clarity.

Depending on your project and the waste you are disposing of, Sourgum Waste offers a variety of dumpsters to fit your specific needs:

Construction & demolition:

Any non-hazardous material that you would find at a construction or renovation site, anywhere from sheetrock and lumber to shingles and concrete. If you have a large amount of concrete or other heavy debris, we recommend getting another dumpster specifically for it, to help lower your costs.

Household items:

Any non-hazardous item from your home, including furniture, gear, toys, appliances, and more. If your household items are still in good working condition, consider upcycling them by donating or selling them instead of disposing of.


Any material you may need to dispose of during a roofing job, including asphalt shingles, wood shingles, clay, and more.

Brush, branch & logs:

Most typical yard waste including brushes, branches, and leaves are all acceptable. Logs over 4 inches in diameter or tree stumps can be disposed of, but they will incur an additional charge.

Clean concrete:

Concrete that is free of any rebar, trash, wire mesh, or other contaminants. We recommend getting a separate dumpster for concrete, as concrete dumpsters have higher weight limits and will avoid you from paying weight surcharges.

Concrete with rebar:

Concrete that has rebar, wire mesh, or other metals which can be often found with concrete demolition. Again, we highly recommend getting a separate concrete dumpster in order to control your costs.

Concrete, brick mix:

Concrete that is mixed with, brick, stone, or other heavy materials. Please note your concrete mix cannot have large amounts of dirt.


From your driveway, roadway, basketball court, or another asphalt surface.


If you have material that is not listed above, or if you are unsure where your waste fits in the list, we are happy to help. Submit a free roll-off dumpster quote request online or give us a call at (732) 366-9355 for friendly support.

    The Dumpster Rental Process

    How to Rent a Dumpster

    Renting a dumpster may seem daunting but we reassure you, it is not. With Sourgum Waste renting a dumpster is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6! Our infographic outlines the six easy steps needed to successfully rent a dumpster and have us haul away your unwanted waste.

    What will you be disposing of? Types of accepted materials include construction & demolition, household items, roofing, brush, branch & logs, clean concrete, concrete with rebar, concrete and brick mix, asphalt, and more.

    We offer 10, 15, 20 and 30-yard dumpsters. A 10-yard dumpster holds 4 pickup truck loads, and a 30-yarder holds as much as 12 pickup truck loads.

    Most dumpster rentals come with an included weight limit but you can choose to add more if you know you will likely be going over.

    Every dumpster rental comes with a complimentary rental period but you can choose to add more if you know you will need extra time.

    Make sure you provide plenty of space in front of your desired drop location and that all obstructions are cleared from the truck's path. If you choose to place the dumpster on the street, check with your city whether you'll need a permit.

    That's it! Sit back and relax as we drop off your dumpster, and call or email us to pick it up once you are ready.

    You've understood by now, what you put inside a dumpster will impact the price you pay for disposal, but it also impacts the environment. This is why the local and federal government regulates the possible contents of a dumpster. So, what can and can't go into a dumpster for the smoothest and most sustainable disposal process? We've created a dedicated guide and made it as exhaustive as possible to help you answer this very question.

    Our process for delivering a dumpster is on roll-off trucks, that roll the dumpster from the back of the truck onto the ground. In order for this to happen, the truck requires a space that is slightly more than double the length of your dumpster. Measure your available space based on the measurements of your specific dumpster before ordering, and if you have concerns about space, please contact us for guidance.

For the disposal of electronic or hazardous waste, you will need to visit the Delaware Solid Waste Authority's website.
