Roll Off Containers - Renting Low Cost Dumpsters

If you are planning on doing a remodeling or building project, you don't only need new materials, you need someplace to get rid of the scrap you tear out. One of the first things to get lined up is renting a roll off container or dumpster so you'll have it on hand when you get started.

Roll off containers are ‘larger than normal’ dumpsters that are open-top and are rectangular in shape. They are mounted on wheels which allow you to roll the container in place.

These containers are designed in such a way that they can be transported back and forth by automated loading trucks that are set up to easily load and off load the container at your site. Roll off containers are larger that your typical ‘dumpster’ are usually used when there is a large amount of debris to remove.

Roll off containers come in different sizes. They typically range from 10 to 40 cubic yards. Apart from the volume, the weight is also a big factor to consider when it comes to deciding on the size of the roll off containers. If you end up renting a container which is too small and therefore, will get over-loaded, you may have to cover the additional costs.

Rates vary based on the size of the roll off you rent, and the length of time you will need it. Try to make sure that you get a size that will fit for the material you’ll have to get rid of. If you find that you’ve run out of room and still have more material, call the company to have your container picked up. Then you can decide if you should have them return a smaller size unit so you can finish your project.

A majority of companies which deal with roll off containers let you know about the items that will not get accepted. Some examples include computers, tires and paint. Check with the company as they may offer options for getting rid of usable recyclable materials at a lower or no cost. If your project will generate a large amount of cardboard, this can usually be kept separate and many companies will pick it up at no charge.

When you are renting a roll off container, it is important for you to get permission from your local authority. Check and see if any permits are required. This permit should either be obtained by the company providing the rental service or the individual who needs it. It can be a hassle, but it’s best to check with your local city offices to make sure you won’t be violating city ordinances, especially if the roll off needs to be parked on a street.

Roll off containers are an especially useful method of removing construction debris and waste. The services roll off container companies provide are not only convenient but also cost effective. Consider the cost of waste removal as part of your project.

Having a roll off container to hold all the ‘junk’ and then having it ‘disappear’ when the project is done makes things easy, quick and convenient for you.
