For legal reasons, you must be 21 years old to rent a dumpster. At Affordable Roll-Offs, we handle orders both large and small. Our satisfied customers include everyone from DIY homeowners undertaking renovations to business owners who need a dumpster full-time. We’ve assisted charity organizations in their clean-up after an event and real estate agents clearing out homes before a sale. We provide dumpsters for individual construction jobs as well as for general contractors and subcontractors on construction sites that require multiple hauls each day.

The size of your project and the space you have available will determine what size dumpster best fits your needs. Check out our helpful post on how to select the right size dumpster for your project here. If you are still unsure, give us a call at 303-339-0293 or email us at We’re always happy to help!

As safety is our number one priority, we ask that you don’t load any material above the top rails of the dumpster. Please try to keep the load flat and distribute the weight as evenly as possible. If for any reason the dumpster is improperly loaded and cannot be transported safely, you will have to unload the dumpster to a safe level before we can remove it. A dumpster that is not ready for transport or that has been blocked in may incur additional charges at the customer’s expense.

Yes, each dumpster is equipped with an 8’ swinging door for easy loading. The dumpster door may be opened only partially if you prefer. To fully swing the dumpster door open requires approximately 8’ft. of clearance in addition to the dumpster space requirement. Please make sure to allow the appropriate clearance for the dumpster. Also, please keep in mind that dumpsters are not permitted to block sidewalks or streets. If the size of dumpster that meets your needs is too large for the space you have available, please call us at 303-339-0293, or email us at, and we will assist in making whatever arrangements we can.

Roll-Off Dumpster - 30 yard

30-Yard Roll-Off  – Small amounts of dirt, brick, concrete, sod, and rock typically are acceptable, not to exceed one (1) cubic yard (approximately 9-14 wheelbarrows). If you think you will have more than 1 cubic yard of any of these materials to dispose of, please consider renting a 15-yard dumpster instead (see details below).

NOTE: Heavy material must be loaded first and distributed evenly along the bottom of the dumpster.

15 Yard Roll-Off Dumpster Rental

15-Yard Roll-Off  –  Dirt, brick, concrete, sod, and rock are acceptable, not to exceed eight (8) cubic yards (that will fill an evenly loaded 15-yard dumpster to about 2.5′ ft above the bottom of the dumpster). In no event may the dumpster exceed the 9-ton maximum for loads. Dumpsters that end up loaded over the weight limit included in our flat rate package will incur additional charges. 

NOTE: Heavy material must be loaded first and distributed evenly along the bottom of the dumpster.

If you think you will have more than 8 cubic yards or 9 tons of any heavy materials to dispose of, please give us a call at 303-339-0293 or email us at to make the appropriate arrangements.

If you find that one dumpster isn’t sufficient, just give us a call at 303-339-0293, or email us at Removal of the full dumpster will be covered by your original rate package, but delivery and removal of the second dumpster will constitute a new order. However, you will be able to take advantage of the same great rate for the second dumpster and the same 7-day rental period as you had in your first order. We are also happy to provide a quote if you find that you need a different size dumpster or a longer time period to finish your project.

Yes, you can rent a dumpster from Affordable Roll-Offs for more than the included rental period. If you need just a couple more days, an additional $15.00 charge for each day that exceeds the included rental period. If you think that you will be requiring a dumpster for an extended period of time, please give us a call at 303-339-0293, or email us at, for a personalized quote.

Our flat-rate pricing includes up-to a week of rental time. However, the price does not change if you keep the dumpster for less time. If you need to schedule an early pick-up directly notify us 24-hours in advance and we will schedule your pick-up for the next available pick-up day at no additional charge.

Our 30-yard and 40-yard dumpsters require at least 25’ of driveway space. Our 15-yard dumpster requires at least 18’ of driveway space. Please keep in mind that dumpsters are not permitted to block sidewalks or streets. If the size of dumpster that meets your needs is too large for the space you have available, please call us at 303-339-0293, or email us at, and we will assist in making whatever arrangements we can.

In most cases, dumpsters are not suitable for use in alleyways. A dumpster blocking alleyway access is considered a safety violation in most cities, including Denver. However, we may be able to deliver a dumpster to your private property through an alley, if the alley is large enough for our truck to safely maneuver. If you are unsure about your particular circumstances, please give us a call at 303-339-0293, or email us at

Each municipality has different regulations and permit requirements concerning dumpsters placed on private property, streets, or any other public right of way. Contact your local municipality and they will provide you with the regulations and costs to purchase any necessary permits. Affordable Roll-Offs is not responsible for obtaining proper permits.

Most driveways that meet building code standards can handle the combined weight of the roll-off dumpster and truck. The experienced drivers at Affordable Roll-Offs take every precaution to avoid damage to driveways and landscaping, however damage may occur due to poor surface conditions or improper clearance. For best results, be sure to leave ample clearance (see “Will the dumpsters from Affordable Roll-Offs fit in my driveway?”, above). Affordable Roll-Offs is not financially liable for the damages caused by normal dumpster operation.

We understand that plans can change and delays can occur. If needed, we can easily reschedule or cancel your rental.  There are no cancelation fees. The only thing we ask is that you notify us one (1) day in advance of the scheduled delivery by calling (303) 339-0293 or Email  If the rental is paid for in advance, a 100% refund will be issued back to the payment method provided.

Roll-off dumpster permits are required in some cities in and around the Denver Metro Area. Every city has its own policies when it comes to dumpsters that will be placed on a public property. For example, some cities require the hauling company to get the permit while other cities require customers to apply for the permit. Therefore, it is important to check dumpster permit requirements BEFORE renting a dumpster. Affordable Roll-Offs is happy to help customers living in residential areas of Denver get permits.
