Whether you're tackling a full-on home renovation or just a few projects, dealing with construction debris can be a hassle. Even something as simple as redoing your landscaping can lead to a lot of trash and debris that your current trash service cannot handle. The solution to all of this debris is renting a dumpster. A roll-off dumpster rental will help you manage the waste from any project you tackle. Here's what to know about dumpster rentals.

Different Sizes Are Available

Whether you are dealing with significant construction or a small project, there is a roll-off dumpster that will meet your needs. However, finding the right size for your needs is vital. If you go too small, you may have to rent another dumpster. Too big, and it can be a waste of money. Most companies offer dumpsters that range from 10 to 40 cubic yards. Your contractor can help you determine what size dumpster will best suit your needs. 

What It Will Cost

A few factors impact how much a dumpster rental will set you back. First, the size of the dumpster plays a significant role in rental fees. Larger roll-off dumpsters will cost more to rent than smaller ones. There are also delivery and removal fees to consider. Dumping fees are another thing to keep in mind and can vary depending on the type of debris and how much there is. On average, dumpster rentals cost between $292 and $480. Dumping fees average between $40 and $65 per ton of debris. Before committing to a roll-off dumpster rental, make sure you know what the total expense will be. 

A Permit May Be Necessary

While a roll-off dumpster rental is necessary for construction, dumpsters are big and cumbersome. Often, you will place the dumpster on your property, either in your yard or driveway. However, if you don't have enough room for the dumpster on your property, you'll have to put it on the street or in a public area. Depending on where your dumpster rental will go, you may need a permit. Before committing to a dumpster rental, check with your local government to see if they require a permit.
