  3. Landscaping projects - If you are undertaking a landscaping project, such as removing a large tree or overhauling your garden, you may generate a lot of yard waste that needs to be disposed of. A dumpster rental can help you manage this waste and keep your yard clean and tidy.

  4. Commercial construction projects - If you are a contractor working on a commercial construction project, you will likely generate a lot of construction waste that needs to be disposed of properly. A dumpster rental can provide a convenient and efficient solution for managing this waste on-site.

These are just a few examples of projects that may require a dumpster rental. If you are planning a project and are unsure if a dumpster rental is necessary, it's always a good idea to call us and we can help you decide.

For longer-term projects or ongoing business waste disposal needs, we may suggest alternatives to roll-off dumpsters such as trash compactor dumpsters.

Picking the right dumpster size, type, and weight limit is important to make your project easy and not cost more than necessary. When choosing a dumpster, think about the kind and amount of trash you'll have. Dumpsters come in different types for specific kinds of waste. Here are some common types:

  1. Construction and Demolition (C&D) dumpsters - These dumpsters are typically used for construction and demolition projects and can handle a variety of materials, including wood, drywall, roofing materials, and concrete.

  2. Yard waste dumpsters - These dumpsters are designed for yard waste, such as grass clippings, leaves, branches, and shrubs. They are often used for landscaping projects and are available in various sizes.

  3. Concrete container rental - These dumpsters are specifically designed for concrete waste, including concrete blocks, slabs, and debris. They are available in various sizes and can be used for both residential and commercial projects.

  4. Roofing dumpsters - These dumpsters are designed for roofing projects and can handle roofing materials, including shingles, tiles, and tar paper. They are available in various sizes and can be used for both residential and commercial projects.

It's important to choose the right dumpster material type for your project to ensure that your waste is managed safely and in compliance with local regulations. Contact us to discuss your project and determine the best dumpster rental option for your needs.

Dumpsters come in various sizes, typically ranging from 10 to 40 cubic yards. It's important to choose a size that is appropriate for the amount of waste you will be generating. A dumpster that is too small may not fit all of your waste, so your project will be left unfinished. Our haulers also can't transport dumpsters that are filled above the rim, so it may cause a logistical problem if you order a dumpster too small. On the other hand, a dumpster that is too large will cost more than necessary which is more money out of your pocket.

It's important to consider the weight limit of the dumpster. Exceeding the weight limit can result in additional fees, so it's important to accurately estimate the weight of your waste. When selecting a dumpster, consider the type and amount of waste you will be generating to accurately estimate the weight of your waste.

To accurately estimate the weight of your waste, consider the density of the materials being disposed of. For example, wood and stone are much heavier than leaves and grass clippings. Consult with us to ensure that you select the appropriate weight limit for your project. If you are ordering a dumpster for heavier material like concrete, make sure to get a dumpster specifically for concrete so you can take advantage of the flat-rate weight pricing.

Are you looking for a long-term rental or a short-term rental? Every Sourgum dumpster order comes with a rental period built-in, but if you know you'll need more time, you can pre-pay for the entire duration. If you need more time after you've placed your order, you can also extend the rental for a small daily fee. Dumpster rentals exceeding 30 days will require a special arrangement - call us to discuss!

We know figuring out what dumpster to reserve can be confusing, so we made sure to simplify the ordering process as much as possible. We have several ways you can place an order with us. Our first and most popular way is to order a dumpster through our online portal, which is favored for its quickness and convenience. You can order whenever, and from wherever!

Dumpster Sizes

When considering a garbage bin rental, consider the amount of waste you will be generating and the space available for the dumpster on your property.

Our common dumpster sizes include 10, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards. A 10 cubic-yard dumpster is ideal for small home renovation projects, while a 40 cubic-yard dumpster is typically used for larger construction or demolition projects.

Dumpster Rental Jacksonville FL FAQ

Renting a dumpster in Jax is easy, but there may still be some unknowns on your mind. Find answers to the most popular dumpster rental questions below or read our full dumpster rental FAQs here.

In Jacksonville, you need a permit for your roll-off dumpster only if you place it on public property like streets or sidewalks. You'll need a "Right of Way Permit" from the Development Services Department. On private property like your driveway or backyard, no permit is usually required. But check your HOA rules for any restrictions, and consider getting a permit for larger dumpsters or extended rentals to avoid any hassle. Remember, it's always safer to be sure!

Yes, your roll-off dumpsters will come with one of two door types:

Handle-style locks:

Unlocking and locking roll-off dumpster doors with handle-style locks is easy. First, remove the safety chains from the locks, but keep them nearby. Look for safety pins, hooks, or latches near the handle and take them out. Lift the handle, and the door will open. To close it, push the door firmly, and the handle will fall back into place. Don't forget to put back the safety pins or latches, and reattach any chains you removed.

Ratchet style locks:

Opening dumpsters with ratchet-style locks requires a bit more effort, but it's manageable. Start by taking off any safety chains. Remove the safety pin or latch, and locate the ratcheting device. Press the small switch inside the handle to engage the gear. Move the ratchet up and down until the door is free. To close it, hold the door shut and use the ratchet to secure it back in place.

Dumpster rental pricing is affected by service location, type of waste material, volume of the dumpster, and length of the rental. In the Jacksonville area, dumpster rentals start from $375 for a 10-yard dumpster filled with household items, to $525 for a 30-yard dumpster filled with construction and demolition debris.

Sourgum's prices include all taxes and fees, and we announce any potential overages you may face in advance before you place your order. The only time you may pay extra on your dumpster rental is if you exceed the weight or duration on your order, and even then we charge a fair, prorated fee so you will not break the bank. You may also incur an extra fee if our driver cannot deliver or pick up the dumpster, but we work with you to make sure that does not happen!

How Does Drop off and Pick Up Work?

The drop-off and pick-up process for a temporary dumpster rental typically involves several steps:

  1. Delivery: Because of factors like traffic and hauling logistics, we can't determine the exact time our haulers will drop off the dumpster on the day you decide. However, you will receive notifications when it is on its way to you, so keep your phone handy.

  2. Placement: Once the dumpster is delivered, the rental company will typically place it in the designated location that you chose. Make sure to let us know where you want your dumpster to be placed and clear the area of any obstacles, debris, or items that would interfere with placing the bin.

  3. Use: Once the dumpster is in place, it can be used for the intended purpose, such as collecting debris from a construction project or cleaning out a home.

  4. Pick-up: When the rental period is over, we will come to pick up the dumpster from you. If you need an extension, it's no problem! Just be sure to let us know ahead of the scheduled pick-up date.

In order to complete the delivery and pick-up process, the dumpster truck requires at least 60 feet of clearance space. This includes overhead clearance for any power lines or trees. It's important to ensure that there is enough clearance space before scheduling a dumpster rental, as failure to do so can result in delays or additional fees.
