Additionally, if you are a contractor or someone who needs to rent construction dumpsters often, let us know and we can discuss our volume discounts for renting multiple dumpsters.

Why Should I Rent a Dumpster?

You should rent a dumpster if you plan to dispose of large amounts of waste generated by construction, remodeling, or cleanup projects. Our dumpsters come in four sizes and are typically used for the disposal of debris such as construction materials, household junk, yard waste, and more. Renting a dumpster allows you to easily and efficiently dispose of large amounts of waste in a single location, rather than having to make multiple trips to a landfill or waste transfer station. Additionally, renting a dumpster can save time and hassle compared to loading debris into a pickup truck and hauling it away yourself.

Dumpster Sizes

There are four main dumpster sizes available: 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards. It's important to choose the appropriate size for your project to avoid overpaying for unused space or choosing a dumpster that's too small to accommodate your waste. If you're unsure which size roll-off bin is right for you, don't hesitate to contact us for guidance.

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.

How Do Rentals Work in Long Island?

Like we said before, taking care of our customers is at the heart of our business. For that reason, our dumpster rental process is easy and can be done completely online. Here are the easy-to-follow steps of the rental process so you feel confident ordering from us.

It's important to determine if your project requires a dumpster and if so, what type and size you need before beginning the ordering process. Dumpster rentals are typically best suited for projects that generate a large amount of waste, such as construction, demolition, or renovation projects. These types of projects can produce significant amounts of debris, making it essential to have a reliable and efficient waste disposal solution in place. Some common projects that require dumpsters are:

  1. Kitchen remodels

  2. Bathroom renovations

  3. House cleanouts

  4. Landscaping projects

  5. Construction work

Keep in mind this is not a complete list. If you don't see your project on here but think you'll need a dumpster, reach out to us and we can help you with finding a solution for your waste.

Once you've determined the appropriate size and type of dumpster for your project, the next step is to place your order. Prior to doing so, there are a few key details to consider, such as the duration of your rental period, your preferred delivery date, and the location where you want the dumpster dropped off. Our dumpsters are transported using roll-off trucks, which require adequate clearance space to safely lower and place the dumpster. While many customers choose to have their dumpster delivered to their driveway, it can be placed in any suitable location of your choosing, provided that there are at least 60 feet of clearance space in front of the desired drop-off point.

When you have decided that you need a dumpster for your specific project, head over to our online ordering portal and place your order. You can also order by phone at (732) 366-9355.

Now that your dumpster rental has arrived, it's time to start filling it with your waste materials! This is a straightforward process that can be done by loading your trash through the rear door or over the rim of the dumpster. However, there are a few important considerations to keep in mind. First, it's important to load the dumpster evenly to ensure safety and stability. Additionally, do not overload the dumpster beyond the rim, as this can create a hazard for our drivers and may prevent us from being able to safely pick it up. Finally, it's important to ensure that only appropriate materials are placed in the dumpster to avoid contamination fees. By following these guidelines, you can make the most of your rental and enjoy a hassle-free waste disposal experience.

If you have questions about what can and can't go in the dumpster, check out our guide that details allowed and prohibited items.

Once you've finished loading your dumpster, it's essential to notify us so that we can schedule a pickup. If we're not informed of your completion, we won't be able to pick up the dumpster, and you may incur charges for each extra day that the dumpster remains in your possession. However, if you need an extension, we are happy to accommodate your needs. Simply reach out to us and we'll give you an extension hassle-free. You'll only be charged a prorated fee per extra day, so you'll have the flexibility you need without breaking the bank.
