Whether you are cleaning out an old house, or starting an enormous remodel, you will have a good deal of waste. So where do you go with all of that trash? A Roll-Away dumpster is your answer.
A roll-away or roll-off dumpster is an open-top waste container used for commercial or residential projects that will have a great amount of waste. It is designed to be delivered when needed and picked up when the job is complete or the container is full.
What Roll-Away Dumpster Do I Need?
First you must consider the project scope and size. What type of materials will you be disposing of, and how much? This will include what is being removed and the waste of new materials. Consider the entire job, taking into account any specifications or local restrictions.
Roll-away dumpsters can be used to get rid of junk like toys, pots and pans, furniture, and old clothes. Any construction debris, untreated lumber, roofing debris or storm debris can be placed in a roll-off.
Some areas will restrict yard waste, such as dirt, grass, trees, or bushes. When planning your project, you must also consider what cannot be placed in your dumpster. This also depends on local regulations but might include: refrigerators, hot water tanks, paint, asbestos materials, industrial drums, cleaning products, aerosol cans, and adhesives. Electronic disposals can also be directed by local governments.
Dumpster rentals are available in different sizes. Texas Johns offers 20-, 30-, and 40-yard roll-off dumpsters. All dumpsters we offer are 22 ft long, 7 ½ ft wide. A 20-yard is 4 ½ feet high, while a 30-yard is 6 feet high. A 40-yard dumpster is 8 feet high. It is important to rent the appropriate size dumpster because each can only hold a certain maximum weight. This is where knowing what you are disposing of and how much comes into consideration. Your roll-away rental provider can help you decide what will best fit your needs.
Research Local Companies
When renting your roll-away dumpster, it is important to deal with a reputable company. There are specific laws in Texas and the Dallas/Fort Worth area about what cannot be disposed of in a roll-away. Your rental company should advise you accordingly.
While searching for your rental, read reviews, and check for proper licensing and insurance. A personal referral is always helpful. Get quotes and compare prices versus service.
Do not be afraid to ask questions when speaking with a roll-away dumpster company. Ask about insurance, licensing, empty and replacement fees, and be sure they are aware of local regulations. Ask about mileage and fuel costs, administrative fees, disposal fees, and weight limit charges. With some companies, some things are included while others are added fees.
Placement and Permits
Prior to renting, check with your local municipality regarding any regulations on placement or any permits that are needed. You must consider placement to prevent any property damage. Ask about limitations, like size or length of time it can be at your location. Disregarding regulations can cost time and money.
