Dumpster Selection Tips

The are various factors to consider when selecting the right dumpster for your project - from size to materials to space needed. View our dumpster selection tips below to ensure your project runs smoothly!

Choose the Right Size

Select a dumpster that is the right size for your project. Make sure it is large enough to fit all of your waste, and that debris does not go above the rim. You will always save money by having the right size dumpster for your project from the beginning, rather than needing two smaller ones.

Examine your Materials

Determine what materials you are trying to dispose of. State and local laws do not permit a certain mix of materials to be thrown out together, as it is harmful to the environment. If you have a variety of different materials, you may require smaller dumpsters in order to prevent contamination fees. Some materials that typically require their own dumpster are dirt, yard waste, and concrete or brick. Feel free to contact Sourgum Waste if you are having trouble deciding which materials cannot be mixed or thrown out together.

In addition, never put any hazardous materials in a dumpster, as it harms both people and the environment. This includes asbestos, wet paints, electronics, batteries, fuels, propane tanks, and more. Reach out to us if you are unsure or if you need help disposing of hazardous waste.

Sourgum Waste can also help if you need to haul away odd materials such as telephone poles, railroad tires, and more. Fill out our roll-off dumpster quote form, and we will respond with a free quote within 24 hours.

Dumpster Placements

We deliver dumpsters on roll-off trucks, where the dumpster is slowly rolled from the back of the truck onto the ground. In order for it to be delivered, the truck needs a space that is a bit more than double the length of the dumpster. If you feel like your space may be too narrow or have any other concerns, please contact us and we will help you decide the proper size for you.

Dumpster Rental Services Offered in Philadelphia County Pennsylvania

In Philadelphia County, Sourgum Waste offers a variety of different types of dumpster rental services:

We provide an extensive variety of commercial dumpsters for any type of business recycling and waste disposal you may have. These dumpsters range from 2 to 8 cubic yards and are customizable! You can add wheels and locks or have it to be made out of lightweight durable plastic.

For those needing something larger, we also offer roll-off commercial compactors. These compactors are self-contained, fully sealed, and can reduce the frequency of hauls by 75%! They are perfect for businesses with space constraints and high-liquid content waste, such as supermarkets, malls, hotels, hospitals, and more.

Sourgum Waste offers dumpsters for construction that make it effortless to discard waste and keep work areas safe. From construction projects to commercial renovations and home remodels, these dumpsters are ideal! They are very versatile and can hold materials such as lumber, drywall, roofing, flooring, and so much more. They can even handle concrete and asphalt, but if you have a large amount, we recommend that you check out our concrete dumpster to save some money.

Why should you rent a concrete dumpster? Concrete is a very heavy material, and its weight can easily go over the limits of typical construction dumpsters. This means more cost for you. However, at Sourgum Waste, we offer special pricing for materials such as concrete, asphalt, block, and stone. Our concrete dumpster is perfect for projects such as home and business remodeling, driveway and slab removals, and retaining wall demolition. Best of all, you will never see any surprises on your bill! Our flat-rate pricing is transparent and all-inclusive.

Concrete dumpsters can have a weight limit of up to 20 tons. You can choose a size between a 10 to a 20-yard dumpster, but the 20-yard dumpster can only be filled about halfway.

What can go in a Concrete Dumpster?

The following materials are allowed in a concrete dumpster, at different prices:

  • Clean concrete, free of contaminants. Painted concrete is allowed, as long as the paint is free of lead.

  • Concrete with metal. Since the metal needs to be taken out of the concrete, the pricing will be higher.

  • Asphalt and/or brick

  • Mixed Heavy Debris. Any mixture of the above is allowed, but the pricing would be higher than if the materials were separated.

What can NOT go in a Concrete Dumpster?

The following materials are not allowed in a concrete dumpster:

  • Concrete slurry (Combination of sand, cement, water, and lime)

  • Other waste, trash, and other materials are not listed as accepted.
