Which Roll-Off Container is Best for YouSeptember 5, 2023
Roll-off containers simplify the need to manage waste and recycling materials at any job site, but every job site has individualized needs for its dumpster. Whether hauling or working in construction and demolition, adding a suitable roll-off container will make transporting debris more convenient.
What You Need from Your Container
Choosing the right open top dumpster for the job is determined by a few factors. When deciding on the appropriate roll-off container for your job site, it’s essential to consider the following:
- Container size
- Type of waste
- Amount of waste
- What can be loaded into the dumpster
- Location of the container
The dimensions of the heavy-duty dumpster vary, ranging from 10–40-yard containers. In considering size, determining factors for the right fit include the volume of waste, how often and how it’s moved, and space available at the job site.
Different roll-off containers are suitable for construction, landscaping, and household debris. Depending on your job site’s needs, you may need separate containers for varying types of waste disposal. Whether materials need to be unloaded is also a factor, as tub-shaped styles make emptying open top dumpsters uncomplicated.
Amount of Waste
The density of waste material should also be considered; high-density loads work best in smaller dumpsters, while low-density loads are more suitable for larger container sizes. Also, rectangular-shaped dumpsters are more favorable for heavy-duty applications.
Contents & Location
Consider the space available at the job site for the open top dumpster. Depending on where the job site is located, a larger option might not be practical, and depending on the waste material density, a smaller option might not be feasible.
