Why Should I Rent A Dumpster?

People rent dumpsters all over Guilford County for various home improvement, landscaping, and cleanout projects. Renting a dumpster provides several advantages over hauling your own trash.

Here are some reasons people choose to rent dumpsters:

  • Moving

  • Cleaning out the basement, garage, or attic

  • Remodeling

  • Cleaning up after a tenant

  • Estate clean-outs

  • Yard projects

  • Demolitions

By renting a dumpster, you can make your job easier, safer, and more environmentally friendly.

Renting a dumpster can significantly simplify your project when you have a significant cleanup job to tackle. Instead of hauling bulky items in your pickup truck and making multiple trips to the dump, you can rent a dumpster, fill it up, and leave the rest to us.

Renting a dumpster is especially crucial when you're remodeling, cleaning up after a flood or a storm, as it provides a safer environment. Whenever debris is left scattered, it can pose a safety hazard, with sharp edges and bacteria. Renting a dumpster ensures a designated space to contain all your construction or clean-out waste, making it safer to complete your project without any potential hazards.

Choosing a dumpster rental that caters to the type of material you're disposing of can facilitate your waste disposal company's recycling efforts. Specialized facilities can recycle concrete as long as it's uncontaminated, and yard waste can be repurposed into mulch for use in other gardens.

When selecting a dumpster rental company, it's crucial to ensure that they don't merely remove your waste, but do so in an environmentally responsible manner by recycling materials when possible.

What You Should Know Before Your Rent a Dumpster

Before renting a dumpster, it's crucial to gather certain information such as the amount of waste (estimate) you will be throwing away, the type(s) of materials that will be discarded, and the size of the dumpster you need. These pieces of information will help us determine the best rental for you.

For example, say your project is a single-room renovation. You could most likely get away with ordering a 10-yard dumpster for renovations with a weight limit of 1.5 tons.

It's also important to know how dumpster pricing is broken down, what weight limits are, if you need a dumpster rental permit, and what to do with items that can't go in a dumpster.

Four main details factor into dumpster pricing. These details are:

  1. Location: Your location plays a big role in determining the cost and logistics of renting a dumpster. The distance your waste has to travel and the facility it gets delivered to depends on your location. Additionally, not all waste facilities accept all types of waste, and the fee structure can vary from one location to another.

  2. Material: Different materials can differ in volume, weight, recyclability, and toxicity. They can also be charged different dumping prices per material. While some materials can be easily and efficiently recycled, others are more challenging and costly to process due to their toxicity or non-recyclability.

  3. Size: The size of the dumpster is another big factor in determining the cost of your rental. It's important to select the best dumpster size for your waste disposal needs to avoid overpaying for space or overfilling your dumpster. Additionally, you can consult with us to determine the ideal size based on the type and volume of waste you plan to dispose of.

  4. Weight Limits: The weight limit refers to the maximum amount of waste allowed to be loaded into the dumpster, and exceeding the limit can result in additional fees. It's important to estimate the amount of waste you plan to dispose of accurately and select a dumpster size and weight limit that accommodates your needs. Additionally, you can consult with our customer service team to understand to determine the best weight limit for your dumpster.

In certain regions, obtaining permits may be necessary for placing your dumpster on public property or streets. For instance, in Greensboro, a right-of-way use permit is needed only if the dumpster is placed on public property. However, in other cities, no dumpster permit may be required. If you're uncertain about the permit requirements for your dumpster rental, you can check using our permit tool which will tell you if permits are required in your area. You can also check with Guilford County's permitting department for further guidance.

If you're unsure about how to dispose of items that cannot be thrown in the dumpster, you may find these resources helpful, depending on your location. Guilford County provides Full-Service Drop Off Centers, where you can recycle various items, including refrigerators, televisions, and tires, and even hazardous waste. If you need any assistance, feel free to ask us for help.

Dumpster Sizes

Choosing the right dumpster size helps you avoid spending unnecessary money. Opting for a dumpster that's too small could require you to rent another one. Similarly, renting a dumpster that's too big would mean paying for unused space.

If you're unfamiliar with renting dumpsters and unsure about what size would be suitable, check out our dumpster sizing guide for some guidance.

Below are our most common dumpster sizes, their dimensions, and example uses for each size.

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 to Rent a Dumpster

Renting a dumpster from Sourgum Waste is a hassle-free process that can be done online or by calling (732) 366-9355.

To order a dumpster online, you'll need to answer a few questions about your project, such as your location, the type of materials you'll be disposing of, and the appropriate dumpster size. You'll also get to customize your weight limit and rental duration before proceeding to checkout. Additionally, you can select a date for drop-off and provide any special placement instructions. The final price you're quoted at checkout includes all costs, with no hidden fees or surprises.

For delivery, our dumpsters are rolled off the back of delivery trucks, which requires a minimum of 60 feet of front space clearance. Ensure there are no obstructions or vehicles in the way. If you want to be present during delivery, request a delivery window to avoid waiting around all day. If you will not be present, you can send us a photo of where you want the dumpster placed or mark the desired location on your property.

After filling up your dumpster, give us a call to schedule a pickup. You don't have to be present for the pickup either, just make sure the dumpster is accessible.

Common Dumpster Rental Mistakes

Honesty is our policy, and we make sure to be upfront about our pricing. Incorrectly using your dumpster, however, can lead to fees being tacked onto your bill from the dumping facilities. To prevent overpaying for your dumpster, avoid these common mistakes that lead to such fees.

To ensure the safe and secure hauling of your dumpster, please keep all garbage beneath the dumpster's rims. An overflowing dumpster is a hazard that cannot be safely transported.

It might seem like placing heavy items on top of lighter items would help compact the contents, but this creates an unsafe hauling condition. To properly load a dumpster, it's recommended that large, bulky items be placed at the bottom and any gaps filled in with smaller items.

If your dumpster rental company isn't able to drop off or pick up your dumpster at the designated location, you may be charged a trip fee. To avoid this, make sure no obstructions or vehicles are blocking the area where the dumpster is to be placed or picked up.

Our dumpster rentals come with a complimentary rental period of 14 days. We do offer extensions for a low daily fee for each additional day beyond the complimentary period. If you want to avoid that daily rate, make sure to finish up your project within your rental period.

Avoid spilling hard-to-remove substances like paint or oil in the dumpster.

If you have only a small amount of concrete and dirt to dispose of, you may be able to include it with your regular garbage. However, for larger amounts, it's important to rent a special dumpster specifically for concrete and other heavy debris. Mixing large amounts of concrete and dirt with regular garbage can cause safety hazards and potentially damage the equipment used to haul the waste.

Hazardous waste should never be placed in a dumpster, as it requires special handling and disposal procedures. If you are unsure about whether an item qualifies as hazardous waste, it's important to review the guidelines on what can and cannot be placed in a dumpster and to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
