Common Dumpster Rental Questions

If you've never rented a dumpster before (or you're a little dusty), you might have some questions regarding dumpster rentals. Luckily, we've simplified the process so now it's easier than ever. We've also answered some common questions about dumpster rentals below.

There are a lot of dumpster types! We have dumpsters for every kind of debris from any kind of project, but some of our more popular dumpster rentals include:

  1. Concrete dumpsters

  2. Yard waste dumpsters

  3. Household junk dumpsters

  4. Construction debris dumpsters

  5. Roofing dumpsters

This isn't a full list, but a representation of all of the different dumpster types we have available to serve your waste needs.

The dumpster size you need depends on the project you are taking on, as different projects create different amounts of waste. Our roll off rentals come in four basic sizes, and each size has a specific use case:

  1. 10-yard dumpsters: These small dumpsters are best suited for small-scale projects, such as a bathroom or kitchen renovation. They are also great for getting rid of yard waste, like branches and leaves.

  2. 20-yard dumpsters: These mid-size dumpsters are ideal for larger renovation projects, such as a basement or garage cleanout. They are also great for small commercial projects, like store cleanouts or restaurant renovations.

  3. 30-yard dumpsters: These larger dumpsters are great for big home renovation projects, like a whole-house cleanout or a major landscaping project. They are also good for commercial projects, such as large-scale office renovations or building cleanouts.

  4. 40-yard dumpsters: These are the largest dumpsters available and are typically used for large-scale construction projects, like building demolition or major site development.

Filling up a dumpster properly is important for safety reasons and to ensure you make the most out of the space you have. Here are some tips for filling up a dumpster properly:

  1. Start by placing larger, heavier items on the bottom of the dumpster. This will create a stable base for the rest of the items you'll be disposing of.

  2. Break down any large items, like furniture or cardboard boxes, to make more space in the dumpster.

  3. Fill the dumpster evenly, distributing the weight of the waste as evenly as possible. This will help to prevent the risk of tipping over.

  4. Do not overfill the dumpster past the fill line. This can make it unsafe to transport the dumpster and may result in additional fees or penalties.

  5. Avoid putting hazardous or prohibited materials in the dumpster, such as chemicals, electronics, or appliances. These items require special handling and must be disposed of separately.

All materials are not allowed in the dumpster! Hazardous waste is prohibited from being tossed in a dumpster and must be disposed of at special facilities. Items considered hazardous in Orange County are:

  1. Paints, solvents, and thinners

  2. Pesticides and herbicides

  3. Household cleaning products

  4. Batteries

  5. Fluorescent light bulbs

  6. Automotive fluids, such as motor oil and antifreeze

  7. Electronics, such as computers, printers, and cell phones

  8. Pharmaceuticals and medical waste

Other items that cannot be thrown into a dumpster are appliances with freon in them, like fridges and freezers. If you have a question about whether or not a specific item you have can be thrown away in a dumpster, please reach out to us and we can help.

Renting a dumpster in Orange County NC means your dumpsters start at the low price of $375. Factors that affect this price are

  1. Location--the distance from a dumping facility plays into how much you are charged for transportation fees.

  2. Materials--the type of material you are discarding affects your final price, as different waste facilities have different prices for dumping different materials. For example, it's typically more expensive to discard concrete than wood.

  3. Weight limit--the amount of weight you order for your dumpster also affects the price, as larger weight limits cost more than smaller ones

  4. Size--the size dumpster you order plays into the price, as smaller dumpsters cost less than larger dumpsters.

Not all dumpsters are dumped equally. This means that some dumpster rental companies, they'll dump your trash at facilities that contribute to landfills, pollution, and are all around bad for the environment.

On the other hand, at Sourgum Waste we are working towards a zero-waste future. This means we only dump at legitimate facilities that avoid landfills as much as possible. We also recycle a large amount of the waste we pick up.
