What size dumpsters do we offer?

There are a few different sizes of dumpsters that you can rent. For minor yard or garbage clean-up, you might consider a front-load dumpster, which ranges in size from 1 to 8 cubic yards. These smaller containers, often called residential dumpsters or front-load dumpsters, are convenient for waste collection, junk removal, and general clean-up on a regular basis. You’ll commonly find them outside of apartments, restaurants, or dorm halls.

For projects such as large-scale home renovations or demolitions, you might want to consider a roll-off dumpster, which comes in sizes of 10, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards.

What size dumpster do I need for my project?

To estimate what size dumpster you’ll need, measure your trash if at all possible. The last thing you want to do is get a dumpster and find out halfway through your project that it isn’t big enough, or that it’s too big. Feel free to contact us with details about your project or task and we’re happy to help you figure out which container you’ll need. You’ll also want to consider where you’re putting the dumpster (eg: residential driveways only have so much room and may not be able to fit a large dumpster and the truck to drop it off). Lastly, you’ll also want to consider the weight of your materials.

What can I put in a front-load dumpster?

Generally speaking, any item that you would put into your curbside trash bins can go in a dumpster. You also have the option of splitting up recyclables, should you so choose. We’ve compiled a list of acceptable materials below:

  • Paper

  • Cardboard

  • Plastics

  • Aluminum

  • Light metals

  • Food waste

As with any dumpster, garbage disposal, or junk removal, hazardous materials are not allowed inside our containers because of the harmful chemicals and features they contain. Hazardous waste includes TVs, monitors, fridges, paints, solvents, liquids, or asbestos.

When loading your dumpster, make sure the debris inside is piled evenly. Avoid concentrating trash in a particular spot, and don’t overload the dumpster. No waste should pass the top or stick out of the container - otherwise, you may be subject to additional rental fees.

Legal considerations of renting a dumpster in Vandalia IL

Most dumpster rental companies take care of the basic permit requirements necessary for you to obtain the container, but if you plan on placing the dumpster on public property, you may need a permit from your local parking enforcement or building permit office.

How does it work?

The dumpster rental process typically works as follows:

  1. You communicate with a dumpster rental company requesting their services

  2. You and the dumpster company make arrangements and agree to terms (including selecting a dumpster type and size and payment terms)

  3. Your dumpster is dropped off at the agreed address on the arranged date and time

  4. You load your dumpster with the accepted weight and type of waste

  5. The rental company picks up your dumpster (with or without trash inside of it) from the agreed address on the contracted date and time.

What Does It Cost to Rent a Dumpster Container in Vandalia, IL?

Costs for your project will depend on on a few factors, including but not limited to length of rental, availability, dump fees, and type and weight of the container. Smaller containers cost less upfront, which may appeal to you, but remember, you do not want to choose a container that is too small.
