Residential and Commercial Dumpster Rentals are Available

Dumpster rentals are handy for both business and residential jobs. They can save you time and money and make your work site safer and cleaner.

Homeowners doing a cleanup or remodeling of any size can benefit from renting a dumpster. Even if you get a small roll off dumpster rental in Prince George's County for junk removal, you'll find it much easier than using your pickup truck.

It's routine business practice for most contractors to use roll-off dumpsters on their job sites. Dumpsters are an efficient way to dispose of large amounts of waste materials, and it's easy to have them delivered to the job site and picked up when the work is done.

If you've never used a dumpster rental before, or you need to use one for a different type of job, you might be wondering how to choose and order the right dumpster for your project. Even contractors who use dumpster rentals regularly for their business sometimes have questions.

Getting the right dumpster rental depends on several factors, and you can choose from a few standard sizes. You should also know what you can and can't throw into a roll-off dumpster.

Things to Consider When Preparing to Rent a Dumpster

When choosing the right dumpster rental for your job, consider these three things which affect the price and availability in your area: location, material, size & weight limit, and rental duration.

There are a lot of different kinds of jobs that require a dumpster. A dumpster makes your life easier when removing bulky trash or recycling building materials.

The pricing of dumpster rentals is affected by your location, what material you'll be putting in, how much it weighs, how large it is, and how long you need it for.

Prices change depending on your location because municipalities within Prince George's County have individual regulations for waste disposal.

Other factors like how far the rental company has to travel to get to your location will affect the price, too. It might cost more if you are far away from where the trash ends up, such as the Materials Recycling Facility in Capitol Heights.

Sourgum Waste is a haulsourcing platform, meaning we'll always use the best hauler for your location. Online ordering on Sourgum Waste makes the cost of dumpster rentals easy to find. The ordering process is easy to follow and only takes a few minutes for most orders.

Your roll-off dumpster rental will be delivered when you need it and picked up as soon as you're done.

Not all trash is equal. Not all waste materials can even be considered trash.

It matters where your unwanted material ends up. The type of material it is will determine its final location.

Many materials can be recycled, for example, concrete. Recycling companies salvage doors and windows, and construction companies use bricks and masonry for landscaping material.

Some companies and charities have even made it their business to salvage construction and demolition materials.

The right waste & recycling company will make every effort to dispose of the waste material in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.

Think of the familiar old riddle, "What weighs more? A pound of feathers or a pound of lead?" Of course, the answer is that they weigh the same, but your dumpster will weigh much more if you fill it full of lead.

The pricing of different sizes of dumpsters includes a certain amount of weight. If you exceed the weight limit, you will pay a prorated amount.

Just remember, the size of the volume of a dumpster rental is different than the amount of weight it can hold.

Dumpster rental periods are included with your order. If you need more or less time, however, make sure the waste disposal company you select will work with you to meet your dumpster rental needs. Sourgum Waste offers flexible rental periods so you can finish your project on your schedule.

Other Factors to Consider When Renting a Dumpster

Size matters

You don't want your debris sticking up above the rim. Make sure you order a dumpster that fits your trash, or the dumpster won't be allowed to be picked up as it'll be a transportation hazard.

Materials matter

Environmental laws may require placing different materials in separate dumpsters. You must dispose of hazardous materials properly. When in doubt, contact your dumpster rental company.

Placement matters

Delivery trucks slowly roll off dumpsters from the back of the truck. There should be at least twice as much space available as the dumpster will take up. Also, ensure that you have the proper dumpster rental permit if you want to park it on the street.

How Big Are Roll-Off Dumpsters?

Dumpsters come in various sizes and shapes for different types of projects. The size of a dumpster is designated by how much volume it holds. For instance, a 10-yard dumpster has a volume of about ten cubic yards.

Calculate the three-dimensional volume measurement by multiplying the interior dimensions (length, height, and width). If your sizes are in feet, divide the result by 27 to get cubic yards.

10 Yard Roll Off Dumpster

A 10 yard dumpster is the smallest size available, and is best if you do not have a lot of debris or the space to fit a larger dumpster. A 10 yard dumpster can hold 10 cubic yards of material, about 4 pickup truck loads, typically holds approximately 2 tons of debris.

What Are The Most Common Dumpster Sizes?

It's essential to get the right dumpster size for your needs. You can choose from several dumpster rental sizes.

The most common size dumpsters are 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40-yard dumpsters. Here are the most common uses for these dumpster sizes:

This dumpster is 3.5' x 8' x 13' and equals about four pickup truck loads. A ten-yard dumpster is excellent for small home projects, like single-room renovations. It will also work for typical attic or basement cleanup projects.

A small deck replacement and about 1500 square feet of roofing can also fit in a 10-yard dumpster.

A 20-yard dumpster measures 3.5' x 8' x 22' and is about the same as eight pickup truck loads.

A 20-yard dumpster rental will work for multiple room renovations, small remodels, and cleanups involving more than one room. It will be adequate for extensive deck replacements and yard cleanup with small trees.

It's easy to throw material over the side of these dumpsters, and there is also a rear door.

20-yard dumpsters are perfect if you're doing a community cleanup in Rogers Height or Kentland.

30-yard dumpster rentals are a little taller. These containers measure 5' x 8' x 22'. The larger size makes it easier to fit bulky items in them. They equal about twelve pickup truck loads.

This dumpster size is excellent for estate cleanups, extensive home renovations, and new home construction. It's also useful for large landscaping projects.

The 40-yard dumpster is the largest roll-off dumpster available and equals about 16 pickup truck loads. This container is even taller than the 30-yard dumpster at 7' x 8' x 22', which makes it perfect for large items like those found in construction waste.

Commercial job sites often use forty-yard dumpster rentals. They are helpful when you are demolishing a home, too.

Depending on the size and scope of your job, you might need more than one dumpster.

Keeping different waste materials separate so your waste disposal company can recycle them might save you money in the long run, and it's better for the environment.

Still Unsure?

Waste disposal companies have the experience and knowledge to estimate the size of dumpster you need. If you have any questions, you can ask them for assistance.

How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Dumpster?

What You Can Put in a Dumpster

Knowing what you can and can't throw away is very important. There are strict regulations about the disposal of certain items. Violation of these regulations can result in additional penalties and fines.

You can throw most household items into a rental dumpster unless they are hazardous. If it is something that you would typically throw in the trash, then it can probably go in your dumpster.

You can throw away common household trash, like old toys, rugs, and curtains.

Before renting your dumpster, review the items that you can recycle rather than throw. Reviewing this list will help you decide what size dumpster you need.

You can throw almost all furniture in a dumpster. Mattress and upholstered furniture disposal rates vary from county to county, so check with the waste & recycling company to determine the requirements in Prince George's County, MD.

Old appliances like dishwashers, ovens, and washers can be thrown away. If you are discarding a refrigerator, you have to drain the freon first. Check with your dumpster rental company if there are any additional fees per appliance.

Some companies accept old appliances for recycling, and some will even come and get them from you. Find a fridge or freezer recycling program before you decide how to get rid of them.

While you can put trees and brush in a dumpster, some Maryland counties limit the amount of organic material. Depending on your location, you might also get a discount if it is separated.

Check with your waste & recycling company for more information specific to Prince George's County.

Home renovation materials usually weigh more than regular household waste. To avoid extra weight charges, make sure you are renting the right size dumpster.

You can put most construction materials in a dumpster. Some items can be recycled.

Like yard waste, roofing shingles will cost less to dispose of if you don't mix them with other waste. They are also heavy. Getting a dedicated roll-off dumpster just for your roofing shingles is a good idea.

Heavy materials like concrete and asphalt require a special kind of concrete dumpster with a much higher weight limit or a simple flat rate pricing.

What You Can't Put in a Dumpster

You can't put anything hazardous in a dumpster. If you have any doubts, it is best to check with your waste disposal company to avoid penalties. They might be able to refer you to other services that can help you dispose of these items.

Electronic waste, including computers, televisions, and printers, should not be thrown in a dumpster. Prince George's County offers an Electronics Recycling Acceptance Site to drop off your old electronics Thursdays through Saturdays.

Batteries have harmful chemicals that can leak and cause fires and are not allowed in dumpsters. Even small batteries can be disposed of in drop-off bins to be recycled and protect the environment.

You must treat any contaminated soil according to Federal Superfund guidelines. You cannot throw it away with your regular trash.

Asbestos is found in older building materials with vermiculite, like some types of insulation and vinyl tiles. Asbestos materials need to be removed by licensed contractors.

Check with your waste & recycling company if you need to dispose of a hot water tank. They cannot be disposed of with regular trash in all locations.

Anything hazardous, like paints, lacquers, and pesticides must be disposed of properly and cannot be thrown in a dumpster.

When in Doubt, Check it Out

If you aren't sure whether or not something can be thrown away, it's best to call your waste disposal company to find out. Reaching out only takes a minute, and they will be happy to help. You can avoid fines and penalties and protect the environment.

Remember that these companies exist to provide these services to you. They want to help!
