Roll-off containers, sometimes called construction dumpsters, are usually set temporarily at a work site. Open top roll off dumpsters are used by the do-it-yourselfer and are the most common. Debris can be thrown into the dumpster from the top of the dumpster or the hinged door in the rear of the container can be opened and the dumpster can be loaded from the rear. Roll-off dumpsters are delivered on the back of a special roll-off truck that is equipped with a cable and wench. The bed of the truck consists of two rails that match slots in the bottom of the roll-off container. The rails are hydraulically lifted up in the front and the container is “rolled off” of the truck and onto the ground with the cable.10 and 15-yard.
While Local Dumpster Rental Man can’t tell you what size container to rent, there are some guidelines to follow when deciding what size container you will need. A 10 or 15-yard roll-off dumpster is a great size for smaller projects such as cleaning out a garage, disposing of a small deck and small remodeling projects. If you do not have too many large, bulky items like couches, refrigerators, stoves, etc. then a 10 or 15-yard may be the ticket. 10 and 15-yard dumpsters are also great for roofing tear-offs. If the roofing project is under 30 squares (10’ x10’ to a square) of single-layer shingles, then this size dumpster would be ideal for your project.20-yard If you are unsure if a 10 or 15-yard is big enough for your project, then Local Dumpster Rental Man suggests renting the 20-yard dumpster. Keep in mind that if the smaller dumpster is not large enough, then you would have to order another container to finish the project and it will cost twice as much. The price for a 20-yard is not much greater than for the 10 or 15-yard and may save you money in the long run.
