The Dumpster Rental Process in Greensboro, North Carolina

If you're wondering how to rent a dumpster in Greensboro, we broke down the rental process into a few simple steps:

  1. Choose the Right Dumpster: The first step in renting a dumpster is to determine the appropriate size, type, and weight limit for your project. Different projects generate different amounts of waste, so it's essential to choose the right dumpster to avoid overfilling it or overpaying for unneeded space. We offer four main sizes, from 10 to 40 yards.

  2. Schedule Delivery: Once you have selected the right size and type of dumpster for your project, the next step is to schedule delivery. We will deliver the dumpster to your location and place it in the area you have selected. To ensure smooth delivery, make sure there is a clear space of at least sixty feet in front of the designated placement area for the dumpster. Before delivery, remove any obstructions to avoid any delivery inconvenience.

    You don't have to be present at the time of delivery, but if you prefer to be there, you can request a delivery window. To keep you informed, we'll send you alerts with our drop-off ETA. For urgent needs, we also offer same-day or next-day delivery.

  3. Fill the Dumpster: Once the dumpster is delivered, you can start filling it with waste generated from your project. Make sure to follow the guidelines regarding what materials can and cannot be disposed of in the dumpster. Also, take caution to never fill the dumpster above the rim, as this can cause safety hazards during transportation. Additionally, make sure to load the dumpster evenly, placing heavier items at the bottom of the dumpster.

  4. Schedule Pick-Up: When your project is complete, you can schedule a pick-up time. We will come and collect the dumpster, disposing of the waste in an environmentally friendly manner. You do not have to be home for the pick up either, just make sure the dumpster is accessible.

  5. Dumping and Billing: Once we've disposed of your waste, we will send you an invoice that should be the same amount you were charged at your checkout. If you went over your weight limit or mixed prohibited materials together, you will be charged an overage or contamination fee from the dumping facility.

  1. 10-Yard Dumpsters: 10-yard dumpsters are ideal for small projects, such as cleaning out a garage or a single-room renovation.

  2. 20-Yard Dumpsters: 20-yard dumpsters are suitable for medium-sized projects, such as kitchen and bathroom renovations or yard cleanups.

  3. 30-Yard Dumpsters: 30-yard dumpsters are ideal for larger projects, such as commercial construction projects or home demolitions.

  4. 40-Yard Dumpsters: 40-yard dumpsters are suitable for the most extensive projects, such as large-scale commercial construction projects or industrial cleanups.

Dumpsters are available in different types, each designed for specific types of waste. Below are some of the most common dumpster types:

  • Concrete Dumpster: Specifically built to handle concrete debris from construction or demolition projects, these dumpsters are rugged and durable enough to withstand heavy loads. Our concrete dumpsters come with no weight limits, which means you won't pay additional charges for heavier concrete loads.

  • Yard Waste Dumpster: These dumpsters are ideal for landscaping waste disposal, such as grass clippings, leaves, and branches. They are often used for yard cleanups and landscaping projects. Due to the light nature of green waste, these dumpsters come with special weight limits.

  • Construction Dumpster: For construction and home renovation sites, construction dumpsters are used to dispose of construction waste, such as metal, wood, and drywall.

  • Roofing Dumpster: Designed for roofing materials like shingles and tiles, roofing dumpsters are commonly used during roofing projects.

  • Household Junk Dumpster: These versatile dumpsters can handle various types of household waste, including certain appliances and electronics, and old furniture. Household junk dumpsters are usually used during home cleanouts.

When you rent a dumpster from us, you'll receive a complimentary two-week rental period. This means that you'll only be charged for the cost of the dumpster, not the duration of your use. However, if the initial two weeks aren't enough, we offer rental extensions with affordable daily rates for each additional day you require the dumpster.

How Much Does It Cost To Rent a Dumpster?

Contrary to popular belief, renting a dumpster is often more affordable than anticipated. In Greensboro, dumpster rentals start at $365, although obtaining a quote requires additional details such as your location, the materials you wish to discard, and the size of the dumpster you plan to order. To receive an accurate cost estimate, we will need this information from you when you request a quote or place your order.

Dumpster rental costs are influenced by your location for several reasons. For one, if your property is far from the waste disposal site, transportation costs may increase. Additionally, different waste facilities have varying fees for different materials, weights, etc. which can impact the total cost of the service. To ensure transparent and reasonable pricing, we only work with certified facilities, eliminating any unexpected fees or hidden charges.

Different types of materials are charged different rates at waste facilities. For instance, materials such as concrete or organic waste cost different amounts to discard since they have different levels of recyclability. Certain materials also cannot be mixed with others, which makes them a little more expensive to discard. It's essential to check the allowable items in your specific dumpster to avoid contamination fees during the transportation of your waste to the facility.

Why pay for more weight than you need when disposing of leaves, grass clippings, shrubs, and branches? That's why we offer landscaping dumpsters with special weight limits for these lighter materials. On the other hand, heavier and bulkier materials require concrete dumpsters. These dumpsters aren't charged by weight, ensuring that you aren't paying a huge amount for each pound of weight.

If you're unsure which dumpster to select, feel free to inquire about weight limits. With years of experience and a wealth of knowledge from handling thousands of projects, we're happy to help.

    How To Dispose of Hazardous Waste and Recycling in Greensboro

    As an environmentally conscious city, Greensboro has several recycling and hazardous waste disposal programs to help residents and businesses dispose of waste responsibly.

    At Sourgum Waste we do collect recycling, however, we require that you rent a separate dumpster for your recyclables since they cannot be mixed with non-recyclables. This is a good option if you have a lot of recycling to dispose of but if you need a regular collection, your city should be able to help.

    For hazardous waste disposal, the city of Greensboro has a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, where residents can dispose of hazardous waste such as paint, chemicals, and batteries. Businesses can also dispose of hazardous waste through the City's Business Hazardous Waste Program.

    If you want to know whether your materials are hazardous waste, you can reference the list of hazardous materials on the city site or use the Waste Wizard to determine how something should be discarded.

    The City of Greensboro provides residents with curbside recycling services as part of its waste management program. All residents with city-provided garbage services automatically receive curbside recycling services at no additional cost.

    Accepted recyclables in Greensboro include paper and cardboard, plastic containers with recycling symbols #1 through #7, aluminum and steel cans, and glass bottles and jars. However, items such as plastic bags, styrofoam, and food waste are not accepted in curbside recycling.

    Apart from curbside recycling, Greensboro also has several recycling drop-off locations throughout the city for residents to drop off their recyclables at their convenience. These drop-off sites accept a wider range of recyclables, including electronics, household batteries, and fluorescent light bulbs.

    Dumpster Permits

    It's unlikely you will need a dumpster rental permit, however, it's always a good idea to check to avoid any fines from the city. Typically dumpster rentals are only needed if the dumpster is being placed on public property, like on the street.

    To find out if you need a permit for your rental, you can either use our permit lookup tool or visit the Right of Way Management page on the City of Greensboro website.
