04 Apr FAQs about Dumpster Rentals
On the surface, something like dumpster rental seems so mundane that you’d think it’s as easy as calling a company, having a dumpster delivered and then having said company haul the dumpster away after it’s been used. But like anything else, once you dig a little deeper and learn more of the details on dumpster rentals, you’re likely to have some questions. At Lakeshore Recycling Systems, we specialize in recycling and dumpster roll-off service, and as you might imagine from reading this post so far, we get a lot of questions about what we do and how it’s done. That said, we’ve put together this FAQ guide to help you out:
Q: What types of roll-off dumpsters are offered?
We offer roll-off containers of all different shapes and sizes. Our commercial rear-load containers vary from one to 10 yards in space, while we also offer larger, 11-50 yard dumpsters as well. Additionally, we offer stationary compactors of various sizes.
Q: How do I know what type of roll-off dumpster I need?
It all depends on the project. If it’s a large project, a roll-off container is likely to be the way to go. They’re usually ideal in construction environments, for disposing of things like brick, concrete and dirt. On the contrary, small projects typically only need rear-load containers. These types of containers are best for standard waste removal as well as cardboard recycling. Contact us today for further input on exactly what type of dumpster best fits your situation.
Q: Is there a right or wrong way to load a roll-off dumpster?
Generally, we recommend that you try to load the dumpster as evenly as possible and to not overload the dumpster. This makes for an easier dumpster removal process, as there’s less of a risk of items falling out of it.
Q: Do I need a permit to rent a roll-off dumpster?
Possibly. If the dumpster is going to be dropped off on a public road or street, or on public property, then the answer is “yes.” However, in the situation where the dumpster will be dropped off on private property, then the answer is likely “no.”
Q: How much will roll-off dumpster rental cost?
That’s a tough question to answer due to a variety of factors. For instance, how big of a dumpster do you need? How long will you need it? Will it need to be swapped out at all? We recommend contacting us to get a price quote for your dumpster rental.
Q: Are there things that I can’t put in a roll-off dumpster?
Yes, usually anything flammable or hazardous waste needs to be discarded of separately and more responsibly. Contact us for more information on what can and cannot be discarded of.
