How Much Does Dumpster Rental Cost?

The national average for a dumpster rental cost is nearly $500. However, the prices of dumpster rentals range from around $200 to over $1,000 in some cases. Variables that may affect the price of a dumpster rental including:

  • Where you are located
  • The size of the dumpster
  • The type of waste in the dumpster
  • The final weight of the dumpster
  • The number of days you have the dumpster rental

It is important to note that the best way to get an accurate price for a dumpster rental is to contact your local roll-off rental company.

The cost of renting a dumpster depends on where you are located. Typically, in big cities renting a dumpster costs more than renting one in a small town. This is because fuel costs, disposal fees, and regulations vary from location to location. In New York, for example, the cost of a dumpster rental will be significantly higher than a small town due to less access to landfills and higher disposal fees for the waste company. The higher cost will ultimately land on the customer, thus the rental price increases. Your location has a big impact on how much it costs to rent a dumpster.

Dumpster Size:

The dumpster rental cost depends on the size of the dumpster. A good rule of thumb is that the larger the dumpster, the more you will pay. Affordable Roll-Offs offers 15 yard, 30 yard, and 40-yard dumpsters. It is important to get the right size dumpster for your project. A dumpster that is overfilled with debris may not be able to hauled away due to safety concerns. On the flip-side, a dumpster that is too large may become a victim of unwanted dumping and items that do not belong to you. Affordable Roll-Offs can help you decide which size is best for you!

Type of Debris

The type of debris or waste that goes in the dumpster rental may increase the cost. The type of debris will determine which landfill type the hauler will drop off the waste. For example, household debris is dropped off at a different landfill than construction or landscaping debris. Additionally, it is important to be aware of much debris is going in to the dumpster. The weight of certain materials, such as dirt, gravel, and concrete, can add up very quickly . Many companies will charge a fee if the dumpster is over the weight limit. See below for material type and weight:

Weight of the Dumpster Rental

The weight of the dumpster may increase the final amount you pay for a dumpster rental. Before any truck is able to dispose of waste in a landfill it is weighed. If the weight of a dumpster rental exceeds a certain amount the hauler may be charged fees to dump the waste. These fees will be reflected in the final cost of your dumpster rental. The amount of additional charges depends on the company, but generally, it is based on how many tons over on weight the dumpster is. It is important to clarify how many tons are allowed in your dumpster rental if it is not listed online. This can save you hundreds of dollars in fees. Always be sure to contact Affordable Roll-Offs with any questions on weight allowances!

Rental Period

The rental cost of a dumpster increases with the number of days it is needed. Most companies offer a weekly, bi-weekly, and sometimes monthly price on dumpsters. However, if a dumpster is needed for longer than the allotted rental period, additional daily rental fees may apply. A good rule of thumb is to be sure you only have a dumpster on-premise for as long as you need it and no more. A dumpster that is sitting on a street or alleyway is likely to get filled with unwanted waste/debris that does not belong to you. Additional items can lead to fees. Therefore, it is always best to get the dumpster filled as quickly as possible and have it hauled away.
