Our local Dumpster Consultants are quite knowledgeable and will successfully choose the right waste container for your project. For instance, for a garage makeover or basement cleanout, we would typically recommend the 15 or 20 yard bins because these types of projects usually include bulky furniture and significant construction debris.
For waste debris that is more dense or compact, like roofing shingles and debris or landscaping brush, you can bet the 4, 6 or 10 cubic yard bins will suffice.
Your roll off bin rental can be used to dispose of many things without any changes to your cost structure. General construction waste such as drywall, old wiring, flooring, and basic household items are all permissible. Below is a list of the most common types of materials that are discarded in our dumpsters.
Accepted Types of Debris in roll off dumpster rentals
- Household waste: furniture, general waste, kids toys
- Construction debris: drywall, plaster, lumber, flooring,
- Yard waste: Brush, shrubs, dirt and soil
- Roofing materials: Shingles, eaves, underlayment, flashing, soffit, vents

The rental period for each container really depends on how long the homeowner will need it.

Each dumpster is designed to hold a certain tonnage. Extra tonnage charges can apply. That’s why it’s important to communicate what materials your disposing.

There is one other factor that can affects how much it is to rent a dumpster and that’s the cost of permits. These don’t usually apply when you rent a dumpster from Bin There Dump that as long as you’re going to place the dumpster in your yard or driveway.
If the dumpster needs to be placed on public property such as the street or sidewalk, you will likely need a permit first. The prices associated with this type of permit will vary depending on your jurisdiction.Other additional fees may include:
- Travel fee: If you're located outside a supplier's service area, they may charge a flat or per mile fee onto the rental
- Prohibited item fee: Did you throw tires into your dumpster? Items like tires, white appliances, etc. are prohibited to be dumped at the landfill - you may see an additional charge for this
The most significant variable in local rental costs is where you are renting from. Renting a dumpster in Hoboken, New Jersey will be significantly more expensive than renting a dumpster in Little Rock, Arkansas.The cost of living is much higher in New Jersey than it is in Arkansas and so is the cost of disposing trash. All dumpster rental suppliers will price their services around the cost of dumping waste at their local landfills or transfer stations.
Dumpster rental service is priced in separate ways across the United States. The most oft-used pricing model is the “all-in pricing” model that include the delivery, pickup, rental period and weight disposal embedded into the cost.
