Do I need a permit to rent a dumpster?

If you plan on renting a dumpster and placing in on the street, on a sidewalk, or on public property, you’ll need a permit. If the dumpster is on your driveway or private property, you do not need a permit.

Permits take time and money to obtain. If you live in an apartment or housing complex, you may have a hard time figuring out where to park your disposal bin. However, junk haulers do not require permits to be on your property.

How do dumpster rentals work?

Dumpster rentals are typically used during a move, renovation projects, or spring cleaning. They are also primarily used to construction, moving, or yard waste.

When you use a trash bin rental, the company will bring a large, open container to your property. You are responsible for filling it with scrap and rubbish. When you're done, the company will haul it away.

Are dumpster rentals expensive?

The cost of renting a dumpster is much more than the advertised rental fee. Many rental companies also charge for the disposal of your junk, a price that’s often based on your junk’s weight. Since it’s hard to estimate how much your stuff will weigh before you put it in, this cost can end up being more expensive than you anticipated.

The price of your disposal may also vary based on your location and how long you rent the dumpster for. Depending on the size of your job, this can add up quickly! If you need to park your bin on public property, you must also factor in the price of a permit.

How much does it cost to rent a trash dumpster?

The cost of renting a dumpster varies by your location, the size of the dumpster, the type of junk you’re throwing out, and how long you rent it for. In some cities, renting a dumpster can cost anywhere from $25-$300 a day. Weekly prices run higher, typically around $120-$620 a day. Monthly dumpster rentals can run up to $2,000 or more. 

Some items such as tires, mattresses, and certain electronics, are banned from being dumped in the landfill, which means you may not be able to put them in your dumpster. Doing so may result in a fine, which is another price to add to your total cost.

What roll off dumpster size do I need?

Rental rubbish bins come in a variety of sizes. They're typically measured by cubic yards, and can vary in cost based on their size.

Here are some common roll-of dumpster sizes:

  • 10 yard dumpster (12 ft. long x 8 ft. wide x 3.5 ft. high)
  • 20 yard dumpster (22 ft. x 8 ft. wide x 4 ft. high)
  • 30 yard dumpsters (22 ft. long x 8 ft. wide x 6 ft. high)
  • 40 yard dumpster (22 ft. long x 8 ft. wide x 8ft. high)

To pick out the right size for your waste needs, make an estimate on how much waste you’ll be throwing away. Remember, dumpster rentals mean loading the junk in yourself - if you have a lot of junk, you may need special tool to help load into the bin.

What can I put in a roll-off dumpster?

Generally, anything you can put in your regular trash collection can be placed in a rental waste bin. This means that hazardous and hard-to-dispose-of materials, such as wet pains, chemicals, electronics, pianos, tires, treated wood, and other large pieces of furniture may not be accepted. Make sure to check what junk is accepted before renting a bin to avoid getting any surprise charges.
