Do not put items that cannot be compressed in first
Filling a roll-off dumpster with items that cannot be compressed is a great example of how not to fill a roll-off dumpster. Items that cannot be easily compressed include packing foam, metal rods, bankers boxes, and more. These items are not easily crushed and therefore might end up taking more space in the roll-off that could have been used for other debris or waste. Save these items for last when filling a roll-off.
Pro tip: The ultimate goal of packing a roll-off dumpster is to have as little air between things as possible. Any air between items represents valuable space. Packing items tightly ensures minimal waste of space in the roll-off dumpster
Do not have items over the maximum fill line
Finally, be sure that all items are below the maximum fill line of the dumpster. This fill line is there to ensure that items will not be falling out of the dumpster when it is on the road. If follow all of the tips above, this should not be hard to do. If there are items above the fill line, the dumpster may not be able to be picked up. This will likely cause a trip charge or other fees.
Pro tip: If there are items sticking out a simple fix may be to walk on top of the debris to “squish” it down. A little extra weight can be a great way to ensure all extra air is pushed out of the debris. Be sure to use caution when doing this!
