These items must be disposed of in the proper manner through private companies like Sourgum Waste.

No one wants a project to be delayed due to additional cleaning time or worse, injury to due to debris laying around. Having a construction dumpster rental scheduled in advance and available on-site is the easiest way to reduce the risk of debris-related injuries and excess site maintenance.

How To: Dumpster Rentals Pittsburgh

What is the scope of the project you're working on? Is it a room, a yard, or an entire house? Dumpster rentals are needed for a variety of project sizes, from remodeling and landscaping to cleaning out homes and installing a new roof. If your project will generate more waste than your regular garbage bin can contain, you'll need a dumpster.

Outline your project scope, figure out how much demolition and cleanup there is, and check what types of materials you'll be disposing of.

Now you know what types of materials you're getting rid of and how big the project is, but estimating debris is tricky. Dumpster rentals are determined by the weight and volume of the debris, so getting the right size matters. If you're unsure of what size dumpster you need, use our handy tool below to explore the different dumpster sizes and what types of projects they work best for. Pay close attention to the weight requirements, because exceeding the predetermined weight will increase the rental price.

Our roll-off dumpsters range from 10 to 40 yards in size, so there's a perfect size for every project. If you still have questions about the best dumpster size for your Pittsburgh PA project, visit our roll off sizing guide, or reach out to us directly and we'll be happy to help.

Once you know the size of the dumpster you need, you're ready to reserve your dumpster. From here, Sourgum Waste takes care of it!

We make renting a dumpster easy, with three ways to get in touch with us. Place an order online, send us an email, or give us a call at (732) 366-9355. The price you see during your order is based on Allegheny County's disposal rate, types of debris, and total dumpster weight. Each dumpster rental is based on a predetermined weight, but even if you go over the weight limit, Sourgum Waste will still take care of it. Dumpsters that exceed the weight limit incur a prorated fee for excess weight, which is outlined to you during the rental process. Even for overweight dumpsters, there are absolutely no hidden fees!

After the rental is completed and paid for, you're set! You don't even have to be home during the dumpster drop-off; just confirm the site is free of debris so the truck can successfully drop off the dumpster. With our flexible rental periods, you can extend or shorten your dumpster rental at any time.

Once your project is done, the hard part is over. Give us a call when you're ready to have the dumpster hauled away and we'll be there. You don't need to be home for the dumpster pickup either. We'll transport the dumpster to the closest disposal facility in Pittsburgh and you'll get a disposal ticket with the total weight of your dumpster for full transparency. You'll also be happy to know we recycle as much as possible out of every load. You can relax knowing that you've found a reliable partner for all of your dumpster and waste disposal needs.

Materials like stone, brick, asphalt, and concrete, can easily surpass the weight limit of ordinary dumpsters before your project is completed, so it's essential to ensure you have the right dumpster. These materials are also easy to recycle meaning we can bring them to a specialty facility and pass the cost savings on to you. Concrete dumpsters are good for projects such as driveway and slab removals, retaining wall demolition, or masonry work. As always, our prices are transparent with no hidden fees or surprises on your final bill.

Dumpster Rentals Pittsburgh FAQs

Renting a dumpster with Sourgum is easy! Find answers to the most popular dumpster rental questions below or read our full dumpster rental FAQs here.

If you are getting rid of household clutter, construction and demolition debris, yard waste, or any other waste that doesn't fit into your trash on a temporary basis, then yes, you most likely need a roll-off dumpster or a roll-off trash compactor if the volume of trash exceeds what can fit in a regular roll-off.

If your waste flow is going to be long-term (a few years at least) or permanent, then you will want to look into our recurring solutions from small  2 yard dumpster rentals to large trash compactor dumpsters.

In conclusion, roll-off is the right product for short-term dumpster rental or temporary dumpster rental, while you may need another solution for long-term dumpster rental.

Dumpster rental pricing is affected by service location, type of waste material, volume of the dumpster, and length of the rental. In the Pittsburgh area, dumpster rentals start from $425 for a 10-yard dumpster filled with household items, to $775 for a 30-yard dumpster filled with construction and demolition debris.

Sourgum's prices include all taxes and fees, and we announce any potential overages you may face in advance before you place your order. The only time you may pay extra on your dumpster rental is if you exceed the weight or duration on your order, and even then we charge a fair, prorated fee so you will not break the bank. You may also incur an extra fee if our driver cannot deliver or pick up the dumpster, but we work with you to make sure that does not happen!

You need a permit for your roll-off dumpster rental in Pittsburgh if you plan to place the dumpster on any public right-of-way, such as the street in front of your home or business. However, no permit is required if the dumpster will be placed entirely on your private property, like your driveway or parking lot.

To obtain a permit for placing a dumpster on public property in Pittsburgh, you need to apply for a Construction Staging Permit (Demolition Dumpster) from the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure. The permit application can be submitted online through OneStopPGH at least one week in advance, and the fee is $25 per week for residential use.
