At first, glance, renting a dumpster may seem like an unnecessary expense. Homeowners and the like will have to typically shell out at least a few hundred dollars to get a dumpster delivered. Can’t all the junk simply go in the trash? Oftentimes that’s not possible. Municipal waste services typically limit how much waste they will pick up in a given week. Some things, like car batteries or electronics, also simply can’t be picked up by the trash truck.
If someone is engaged in a large project, say building a new home or clearing out a large barn, they may quickly generate too much trash for the garbage truck to pick up. In these cases, the easiest solution is often simply to rent a dumpster. A dumpster rental can save folks time, and at the end of the day, time is money.
Ultimately, costs can vary a lot when renting dumpsters. For one, there are many different sizes of dumpsters. Some are quite big, others are small. Local municipal waste removal costs can also influence pricing. Ditto for location. Weight is important too, with heavier weights costing more. If the dumpster needs to be delivered to a remote area, it’ll typically cost more than delivering just down the street.
