Dumpster Rental FAQs Asked and Answered

A KEI dumpster rental sits in the street in Butler.

Roll-off dumpster rentals are a convenient solution for homeowners, contractors, and businesses that need to dispose of large amounts of debris or waste. Having questions about the dumpster rental process isn’t uncommon.

From how much it costs to suitable delivery locations, we dive into your most frequently asked questions to help you make an informed decision before renting a roll-off dumpster for your next project.

What is a roll-off dumpster?

A roll-off dumpster is a large, open-top container designed for the temporary storage and removal of waste. Construction debris, household junk, and landscaping trimmings are all suitable for this method of disposal.

Unlike standard dumpsters from your local garbage collection service, roll-off dumpster rentals have a rectangular shape, include wheels for easy movement, and come with open tops for easy – and safe – disposal of items.

Roll-off dumpsters are delivered on-site and retrieved once full or when the rental period expires (whichever comes first).

What are the typical dumpster rental sizes?

Roll-off dumpster rentals come in various sizes. Most range between 10 and 40 cubic yards. KEI offers the following dumpster sizes to its customers:

  • 10-yard containers are 12 feet long, 4 feet high, and 8 feet wide. They hold up to 2 tons of material and are ideal for attic or basement cleanouts, small remodeling projects, and landscape debris.
  • 15-yard containers are 14 feet long, 4 feet high, and 8 feet wide. They hold 2.5 tons of material and are ideal for decluttering, apartment cleanouts, small remodeling or construction projects, and yard debris.
  • 20-yard containers are 16 feet long, 4 feet high, and 8 feet wide. They hold 3 tons of material and are ideal for new construction, large residential remodeling projects, and industrial sites.
  • 25-yard containers are 16 feet long, 6.16 feet high, and 8 feet wide. They hold 3.5 tons of material and work well for large construction sites, large house remodeling projects, and industrial sites.

If you’re not sure what size you need, talk to one of the team members at KEI when ordering. They can recommend the perfect dumpster size to meet your needs.

How much does it cost to rent a roll-off dumpster?

The cost of renting a roll-off dumpster varies depending on its size, rental duration, location, and the type of debris or waste you need to dispose of.

Requesting a quote from KEI is the best way to estimate how much you should budget for a dumpster for your next project. The larger the dumpster, the more expensive it is to rent.

Are there any restrictions on dumpster rentals?

Yes, there are several restrictions on what you can dispose of in your dumpster rental. Roll-off dumpster rentals in Pennsylvania are subject to statewide regulations that prohibit KEI from collecting specific materials.

The following items are banned or restricted for collection in our dumpster rentals:

  • Batteries
  • E-waste items (computers, monitors, printers)
  • Freon-containing appliances (air conditioners, freezers, refrigerators)
  • Gasoline, oil, and other liquids
  • Hazardous waste
  • Paints
  • Televisions
  • Tires

Items containing corrosive or explosive components also are prohibited. If you’re not sure whether the materials you want to throw out can go into one of our dumpsters, ask one of our team members before scheduling delivery.

How long can you keep a dumpster rental?

The length of dumpster rentals ranges between 7 and 14 days depending on which company you use. KEI’s rental agreements provide a standard 7-day rental period unless other arrangements are made.

If you need to keep your dumpster longer or need drop-off and pick-up services to accommodate a large construction project, let a KEI team member know when you call to reserve your dumpsters. Additional fees apply to rentals that extend beyond the typical 7 day period.

Do I need a permit to rent a roll-off dumpster?

The short answer to whether you need a permit to rent a roll-off dumpster is it depends on where you live. Most communities in Butler County do not require permits if the dumpsters are on private property.

If you must place a dumpster in the street or in a location that is blocking public access, check with your local municipality about permitting requirements for those situations. Failing to obtain a permit if your local government agency requires one can lead to fines and other punitive actions.

What’s the best place to put a roll-off dumpster?

The best place to put a roll-off dumpster rental is on a flat, solid surface where it isn’t blocking public access to roadways or other amenities. KEI recommends driveways if you have one available on your property.

In a pinch, we can place our dumpsters at the curb in the public street. However, you may need a permit from your local municipality before doing so.

You’ll also want to check that there is enough clearance over and around the space where the dumpster will go. Dumpster delivery trucks need ample space to maneuver during delivery and pick-up to prevent damaging your property or the dumpster.

What happens if you exceed the dumpster rental weight limit?

Roll-off dumpsters have weight limits for a reason. If you exceed yours, you may be subject to additional fees from KEI to cover the costs of disposing of the additional debris or waste. Garbage dumps charge dumpster rental companies for disposal based on the total weight of items placed in the bin.

Overfilled dumpsters also pose a safety risk to our drivers and the general public because the excess weight can cause the bin to tip during loading.

If you’re unsure whether you’re overloading your dumpster, give the rental company a call before you fill it up.

Can recyclables go into dumpster rentals?

As a rule, you shouldn’t put materials that can be recycled into a regular roll-off dumpster. Items like cardboard, glass, and plastic can be repurposed and reused instead of tossed into the bin with other items headed to the local garbage dump.

Some rental companies offer options for recycling certain materials such as wood, metal, and concrete. Check with your local dumpster rental company before you dispose of recyclable materials to see if they have any recycling programs or guidelines for separating recyclable materials.

Goin’ Green: Commercial Dumpster Rental Boosts Sustainability

A KEI dumpster rental truck delivers a commercial dumpster rental to a business in Butler. The green "sustainability" symbol appears over the image.

As the world becomes more environmentally conscious, businesses are under increasing pressure to adopt sustainable practices.

One often overlooked aspect of going green is waste management. Proper disposal of waste can significantly reduce a company’s environmental footprint, lower operating costs, and enhance brand reputation – making it a win-win for the businesses and the planet.

Partnering with a reputable commercial dumpster rental company allows businesses to streamline their disposal processes while ensuring waste is properly sorted, transported, and processed in an eco-friendly manner.

In this article, we’ll explore the basics of green business practices that include waste disposal, answering questions such as:

Why opt for commercial dumpster rental?

Businesses generate significant amounts of waste. It can range from packing materials to obsolete equipment. Managing this waste responsibly is critical for minimizing its environmental impact.

Commercial dumpster rental provides a structured and efficient solution for businesses to handle their waste, ensuring proper disposal and recycling.

Beyond its environmental benefits, commercial dumpster rental is a cost-effective and convenient option for businesses that produce a lot of waste. Instead of dealing with individual waste pickups or managing on-site dumpsters, companies can rely on professional services to handle their waste efficiently and appropriately.

How does commercial dumpster rental contribute to sustainability?

Improper waste disposal has severe consequences for the environment. Toxic materials can leach into the soil and groundwater, contaminating natural resources.

One of the key ways commercial dumpster rental services enhance sustainability is through effective waste segregation and recycling. Reputable dumpster rental companies prioritize separating recyclable materials from general waste, diverting items like paper, cardboard, plastics, and metals away from landfills.

Using commercial dumpster rental services helps businesses follow environmental regulations and guidelines. Proper waste disposal practices not only contribute to sustainability but also protect your company from potential legal issues related to improper waste management.

What types of businesses can benefit from commercial dumpster rental?

Whether you’re a restaurant, a retail outlet, an office space, or a manufacturing facility, businesses of all types and sizes benefit from efficient waste management.

Construction sites, with their unique waste challenges, can particularly benefit from commercial dumpster rental. These services can handle construction debris, helping to divert materials like concrete, metal, and wood away from landfills.

Using a commercial dumpster rental service provides several benefits for businesses looking to boost their sustainability efforts, including:

  • Reduced environmental impact. By properly sorting and disposing of waste, businesses can minimize their carbon footprint and prevent pollution.
  • Cost savings. Proper waste management leads to cost savings in the long run as businesses reduce their waste disposal fees and potentially earn revenue from recycling.
  • Compliance with regulations. Many cities and states have strict regulations regarding waste disposal. Commercial dumpster rental services can help businesses remain compliant and avoid costly fines.
  • Improved public image. Customers and stakeholders are increasingly aware of environmental issues. Businesses that adopt sustainable practices enhance their reputation and brand image.

How do you choose the right commercial dumpster rental service?

Incorporating commercial dumpster rental services into a business’s waste management strategies takes a significant step toward boosting sustainability and reducing environmental impact.

When selecting a dumpster service, consider the following factors:

  • Waste streams handled. Verify the service provider can accommodate your business’s specific waste streams, including recyclables and compostable materials.
  • Service area and frequency. Choose a provider that services your area and picks up waste on a schedule that meets your needs.
  • Pricing and contract terms. Compare pricing and contract terms among different providers to find the most cost-effective solution.
  • Environmental certifications. Look for providers with certifications or accreditations that demonstrate their commitment to sustainable practices.

Dumpsters Aren’t Just for Spring and Summer Cleanouts: Experience the Year-Round Benefits

A roofing contractor repairs a problem with a gutter on a roof. Roofing projects require local dumpster rentals during all seasons of the year.

When most people envision renting a roll-off dumpster, they imagine using it for big spring cleanouts or summer renovation projects that generate a lot of waste. While local dumpster rentals are most popular in the spring and summer months, they can be helpful year-round if you know how to think outside the bin.

Consider roll-off dumpsters as more than temporary trash bins for home decluttering. Yes, they’re handy for curbside tossing unwanted items without the hassle of making multiple trips to the local dump.

However, the benefits extend to all four seasons when you start to list the many ways that they make the removal of unwanted trash and other debris convenient and safe.

Let’s explore some of the seasonal joys of local dumpster rentals to give you an idea of how to get the most bang for your buck.  

Winter Benefits of Local Dumpster Rentals

You never know what kind of weather you’re going to get in Western Pennsylvania during the winter months.

The region might be blessed with mild temperatures that make it ideal for some outside projects that normally must wait until spring.

Other times, it might be cold and snowy, making you dread leaving the house.

No matter which scenario happens, you can find creative ways to use local dumpster rentals to get things done around your home or office.

Home or office remodeling projects

Wintertime is the perfect opportunity for home or office remodeling or renovation projects. For starters, there’s less competition for contractors during these times of the year. Another perk is you’re not spending time inside working on improvements when you’d prefer to be outside enjoying the warmer temperatures of the spring and summer.

It’s a win-win situation.

Roll-off dumpsters are a convenient way to dispose of debris and other waste from remodeling and renovating. Just make sure you choose the correct size to accommodate your disposal needs.

Wintertime yard maintenance

Milder winters mean more of an opportunity for outside improvement projects around your home. From cleaning up fallen branches and other debris left over from the fall to building a retaining wall alongside your driveway, plenty of outdoor winter projects benefit from having a dumpster on-site.

If you plan to use your roll-off dumpster for disposing of concrete or other heavy construction materials, be sure to alert the rental service so they can match you with an appropriately sized dumpster with a reinforced floor to accommodate the extra weight.

Spring Benefits of Local Dumpster Rentals

Spring is one of the busiest times of the year for dumpster rentals. People emerge from their winter cocoons, eager to shed their homes and offices of clutter and embark on improvement projects that generate significant waste.

Because dumpsters are in such high demand, you might have to wait to get access to the size or number of dumpsters required to accommodate your needs (which is one more reason to consider a wintertime rental instead).

Home and office cleanouts are among the most popular uses for local dumpster rentals in the spring.

Some of the other ways residential and commercial property owners use roll-off dumpsters in the spring include:

  • Disposal of junk and debris from basement, garage, and shed cleanouts that can’t be repurposed or donated.
  • Removal of old playground equipment and other outdoor furniture and features that are no longer useful or in working order.
  • Tossing bulky waste items like appliances, furniture, and mattresses that some curbside trash collectors won’t accept.
  • Yard trimmings and other lawn debris that collected during the winter months.

Summer Benefits of Local Dumpster Rentals

Next to spring, summer is one of the busiest seasons for local dumpster rentals.

Summertime is prime for yard cleanups, remodeling projects, and estate sales that require cleanouts before inviting bidders onto the property.

Buying and selling homes – which requires relocating – is also popular during the summer months when school-aged children are on break. Roll-off dumpsters accommodate the disposal of unwanted items before a big move.

Outdoor festivals and events require an efficient cleanup solution that can handle the volume of waste large crowds produce.

Let’s not forget commercial cleanouts. Businesses often use the summer months to conduct deep cleaning, renovations, and reorganizations that produce plenty of debris and other waste.

Fall Benefits of Local Dumpster Rentals

Local dumpster rentals help with many projects around your home or office during the fall. Fallen leaves, tree branches, and other yard debris aren’t always collected by curbside trash collectors, leaving you holding the bag.

Roll-off dumpsters provide an alternative for disposal, with the added convenience of curbside pickup once it’s full.

Weatherproofing and repairs in preparation for the winter can also generate quite a bit of debris. Gutters need cleaning out, and you’ll want to have a handy place to dispose of the gunk you find trapped inside them.

Experience the year-round convenience of local dumpster rentals

Local dumpster rentals deliver valuable benefits in every season. With the variety of cleanup, maintenance, and remodeling tasks that pop up throughout the year for both home and business owners, it pays to know you can conveniently dispose of debris and other unwanted items with a roll-off dumpster when needed.

5 Things to Ask About Local Dumpster Rentals for Home Projects

A red KEI roll-off dumpster sits in front of a home that needed local dumpster rentals for a home project.

Local dumpster rentals make just about any home project easier. From DIY bathroom remodeling to roof replacements, a dumpster is a necessity for the convenient and efficient removal of debris and other construction waste.

Asking the right questions before you reserve a roll-off dumpster rental helps you have a better experience. You’ll want to choose a waste management service that meets your specific project needs and budget.

Not sure what to ask? No problem! Our latest article guides you through the process with the 5 most important things to know, including:

What size dumpster do I need for my project?

Choosing the correct size for local dumpster rentals prevents problems down the road. If it’s your first time using a roll-off dumpster, you might be confused about how to decide whether you need a 10-yard or 25-yard container.

Follow these 3 tips to get sizing right:

  • Estimate the amount of debris your project might generate. Take some measurements of the area of your home you’ll be working on. Then, make an informed decision about the amount of waste you’re likely to produce. For example, a 15-foot by 10-foot room with 8-foot ceilings that are being fully gutted may generate between 20 and 30 cubic yards of debris.
  • Match up your anticipated waste with the correct dumpster size. With your estimated debris calculations, you can now determine what size dumpster best accommodates your needs. It’s better to overestimate slightly than to find yourself with a dumpster that’s too small for your entire load.
  • Avoid the pitfalls of over or under-filling your dumpster. Overfilling your dumpster creates safety hazards for dumpster delivery drivers and other motorists on the roadways. Likewise, choosing a container that’s too large and then underfilling it costs you money.

Don’t be afraid to ask the dumpster rental company for assistance if you’re truly confused and don’t want to make the mistake of requesting the appropriate size container. Consider it a red flag if the roll-off dumpster rental service won’t help with this request.

Local dumpster rentals are specific to the type and amount of debris you plan to dispose of. This construction dumpster is full of drywall, boards with nails, and insulation.

Do you offer different types of roll-off dumpsters?

Not all containers are created equally. Reputable local dumpster rental services should have various sizes and types to accommodate a variety of home projects and other waste disposal needs.

Ordering the container best suited for your project prevents contamination, avoids extra fees, and makes proper disposal of your debris and other waste easier.

Consider these types of dumpsters for specific home projects:

  • Concrete dumpsters are ideal for brick rubble and concrete blocks because they accommodate the extra weight.
  • Roofing dumpsters have reinforced floors and are best suited for old roofing shingles, which can contain nails and tabs that might damage regular dumpsters.
  • General construction dumpsters come in a variety of sizes and can handle typical construction debris from DIY home projects like bathroom remodels or floor replacements.
  • Yard waste dumpsters

Waste materials not suited for local dumpster rentals

Not all materials are suited for local dumpster rentals. Most local dumps won’t accept these items because they have the potential to pollute the environment.

  • Hazardous wastes such as paints, solvents, gasoline, lubricants, and electronics are prohibited.
  • Regulated materials such as vehicle tires, car batteries, and appliances containing freon or other refrigerants.
  • Problematic materials such as flammable items (propane tanks, gas cylinders) and biohazards like medical waste.

If you’re not sure whether the items you plan to dispose of during your home project are suitable for local dumpster rentals, ask the company before placing your order. You’ll save yourself a huge headache later if you dump materials that are toxic and not accepted by the local dump.

What is included in your roll-off dumpster rental fee?

When budgeting and planning for a roll-off dumpster, it’s important to understand what your rental payment does and doesn’t cover.

Typically, the base fee includes the following:

  • Dumpster container. The roll-off dumpster for the duration of your rental period is included in the main rental fee. The amount you pay depends on the dumpster size you select.
  • Delivery and pickup. Transport fees for your roll-off dumpster are bundled into your standard rental rates. KEI’s delivery trucks can handle every size of dumpster they rent.
  • Disposal and dumping. Tipping fees to dispose of waste at the local municipal solid waste landfill, recycling center, or transfer station are built into rental costs. Taxes and government environmental fees also may be included.

Combining these expenses into one rental price simplifies the rental process for all parties. Be sure to clarify any extra charges for things like extended rental periods, overloading weight fees, and limitations on materials.

How long can you keep a roll-off dumpster rental?

Most local dumpster rental companies have standard rental terms of between 5 to 7 days. The timeframe compromises between giving customers enough time to finish their projects and not having a dumpster blocking a driveway, street, or sidewalk for longer than necessary.

KEI offers standard 7-day rentals for all its roll-off dumpsters. However, for more extensive home projects generating high volumes of waste over longer periods, you can request an extended rental agreement. In this scenario, KEI recommends a pickup-and-replace option.

A KEI delivery driver collects your full dumpster and replaces it with an empty one. This cycle is repeated for the duration of your project. Inquire during the rental request call if this is a benefit you may need to use.

What steps should you take to prepare for your dumpster delivery?

After ordering your dumpster, taking a few quick preparation steps can help with a smooth delivery. The first thing you should do is confirm access requirements with the rental company.

Measure the width of access routes like gates and alleyways. Check for low-hanging tree limbs or wires. Dumpsters typically require 12 feet wide and 15 feet high clearance.

Some municipalities require permits for local dumpster rentals. Check with yours to secure the appropriate permissions to avoid hefty fines and other repercussions. Some dumpster rental services won’t deliver if they know you need a permit for your area, and you’ve not provided one.

Lastly, clear plenty of space for your dumpster. As a general guideline, it’s best to leave between 40 and 50 feet of empty area for the delivery truck to maneuver. Avoid placing the dumpster by utility meters, lines, and AC units. If you need to place your dumpster on a city street, traffic cones are useful for reserving the space.

Local dumpster rentals are your go-to resource for seasonal decluttering and efficient disposal of debris and other waste from construction projects.

Choosing a roll-off dumpster rental service doesn’t have to be complicated when you understand how the process works. In this helpful guide, we explore some of the most common questions about local dumpster rentals to help make the process smoother.

Whether you’re a homeowner trying to declutter before overnight guests arrive or a business owner renovating your retail space to improve the user experience for customers, you likely have some or all of these questions:

What are local dumpster rentals?

Local dumpster rentals are a service provided by waste management companies. They offer temporary access to roll-off dumpsters of all sizes to help you conveniently and efficiently manage waste disposal.

You can reserve dumpsters to accommodate home or business renovations, construction, decluttering, and other activities that generate too much waste for curbside pickup with your regular trash hauler.

Some of the key features of local dumpster rentals include:

  • Convenience for disposing of large amounts of debris and other waste in one central location.
  • Cost-effective compared to making multiple trips to the dump using your vehicles.
  • Flexible pickup and drop-off delivery options that coordinate with your project timeline.

Why choose local dumpster rentals over other options?

Choosing local dumpster rentals over other waste disposal options depends on the specific needs of your project, the volume of waste generated, and other considerations like cost and convenience.

Let’s compare the benefits and best uses of roll-off dumpster rentals with some of the alternatives to help you make the best decision.

Local dumpster rentals

Local dumpster rentals are convenient, cost-effective, and versatile, making them one of the best options for everything from construction projects and renovations to cleanouts.

  • Convenient – roll-off dumpsters are delivered to your location and retrieved by the dumpster rental service when your agreed-upon rental period ends.
  • Cost-effective – most local dumpster rental companies charge reasonable fees for using their services compared with what you could expect by making trips to the local dump yourself.
  • Versatile – roll-off dumpsters are a convenient and safe way to dispose of debris and other waste from a variety of projects.

Bagster removal systems

Some home and tractor supply retailers offer Bagster removal systems. Consumers buy a “bag” of a predetermined size and then fill it with debris and other waste.

While this might seem convenient and affordable, there are some drawbacks to using this kind of service.

First, they have limited capacity, making them an unsuitable choice for big cleanouts or small construction projects. Most hold up to 3,300 pounds (the equivalent of roughly one cubic yard of heavy materials).

Second, these types of systems are limited to certain areas of your property for convenient pickup. These restrictions might make trips to the Bagster carrying heavy debris awkward.

Traditional curbside pickup

Traditional curbside pickup has many restrictions on the types of materials it accepts. Weight restrictions also can be an issue when trying to dispose of materials from even the smallest renovation projects.

Additionally, your regular weekly trash day may not align with your project timeline, leaving you storing unwanted waste on your property for longer than you’d prefer.

Hauling to the landfill

Hauling debris and other waste to the landfill yourself is an option. However, you can rack up a lot of miles handling disposal in this manner. Not to mention you may need to rent a pickup or box truck to move larger items that don’t easily fit into a passenger vehicle.

Another issue with this method is it’s very time-consuming.

By the time you add up all these factors, it’s likely cheaper to rent a roll-off dumpster from a local dumpster rental company.

Professional Junk Removal Services

Professional junk removal services are convenient if you prefer to have someone else handle all the hard work of removing and disposing of clutter and other waste from your home or business.

However, you’re going to pay for the convenience. Professional junk removal specialists are more expensive than dumpster rentals, which can be a costly mistake for smaller projects you could easily handle yourself.

How do you choose the right-sized dumpster for your project?

Most dumpster services offer several sizes to accommodate your needs. The smallest unit KEI offers is 10 yards, which is ideal for cleanouts, concrete disposal, and light demolition projects.

You don’t have to guess to find the right-sized dumpster when you consider the following factors:

  • Available space – evaluate how much space you have on-site for a dumpster, then choose from the options offered by the dumpster rental service that are ideal for your space limitations. Make sure you leave enough room for the delivery truck to load and unload the dumpster safely.
  • Amount and type of waste – estimate the volume of waste you expect to produce with your project to ensure you choose a dumpster sturdy enough to handle it.
  • Project timeline – for smaller projects that take a few days to complete, you can probably get away with the smallest sized dumpster available.
  • Weight restrictions – roll-off dumpsters include weight restrictions. Overloading them can pose safety hazards for you and for the dumpster delivery driver.

If you’re stuck, local dumpster rental companies can help you choose the best-sized roll-off dumpster for your project. Just provide some details about how you intend to use it and they can recommend the best option.

What items are prohibited in local dumpster rentals?

Roll-off dumpster rentals aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution to your waste disposal needs. There are restrictions on the types of debris and other materials you can toss into them.

Most local dumpster rentals prohibit the following items:

  • Batteries
  • E-waste items (computers, monitors, printers)
  • Freon-containing appliances
  • Gasoline, oil, and other hazardous liquids
  • Paint
  • Televisions
  • Tires

Never toss items with corrosive or explosive components into a roll-off dumpster. If you have items of this nature that need disposal, ask for recommendations from the dumpster rental service on the best way to handle those needs.

What are some tips for a smooth dumpster rental experience?

Scheduling your roll-off dumpster delivery well ahead of time is one of the smartest things you can do to ensure a smooth dumpster rental experience. This is especially important during peak rental times (spring and summer).

Some other tips for achieving local dumpster rental satisfaction include:

  • Avoiding prohibited items to prevent problems at pickup or disposal.
  • Loading materials in a way that evenly distributes the weight and avoids overloading.
  • Monitoring weight limits to avoid additional fees or other issues at pickup time.
  • Securing permits, if necessary, for the placement of your dumpster on your property.
