Choosing a 30-Yard Dumpster Rental

One of the biggest parts of a new construction or remodeling job is getting rid of the trash and debris that accumulates throughout the construction project. The best way to handle all this debris is to rent a dumpster. When renting a dumpster you want to make sure that you rent a dumpster large enough to require only one pick-up.  Since dumpster rentals usually charge delivery and pickup fees, having only one pickup will save you money. A 30-yard dumpster is one of the most commonly rented sizes when it comes to dealing with debris from construction or remodeling projects.  A 30-yard dumpster holds 30 cubic yards of materials and debris. This is equal to about 10-15 pickup loads of waste.  A 30-yard dumpster will easily hold the debris from one of the following projects:

  • 2 layers of roofing shingles from an average sized home.
  • Whole-home cleanout project.
  • Large deck or pool removal.
  • Small home demolition.
  • Interior renovation project.
  • New home construction project debris.

There are also two styles of dumpsters that are available for rent.

Open-top roll off dumpsters.  This is the most common type of 30-yard dumpster used.   It is delivered on a flatbed truck that rolls the dumpster off the back of the truck into place.  These bins usually have a door at one end that will open for easier loading. This is really convenient when loading large and bulky items. Great for loading heavy items such as home appliances.

Dump trailers.  Because it is on wheels a dump trailer is more suited for some sites.  If the ground is not stable enough to hold up a dumpster delivery truck then a dumpster trailer is the answer. Dump trailers are less common than roll-off dumpsters and are usually only available in smaller sizes.

The average cost of a 30-yard roll off dumpster container is $400-$500. There are other charges that may apply. Charges for weight overages, fuel surcharges, late fees and the types of debris may apply. Each company varies with the policies they have. You need to prepare enough room in your driveway to accommodate the dumpster. A 30-yard dumpster is 22’ x 8’ long plus you will need enough additional space to walk around the dumpster.
