If you’re planning on a home renovation project, you may wonder what you’re going to do with all the construction waste. The easiest and most economical solution is to contact St Paul Roll Off Dumpster Rental for a roll off container.
Q. What is a roll off dumpster?
A. It is a large, rectangular metal container with an open top. The container has wheels on the bottom so that it can be rolled into position. These dumpsters are transported on the back of a roll off truck. When the truck arrives at its destination, the truck bed is raised and the container rolls off the back of the truck. A cable is attached to the container so that it rolls slowly off the truck. When the dumpster is ready for pickup, the cable is attached to the container and a winch pulls it up into the back of the truck.
Q. What sizes are the containers?
A. The roll off containers are available in several sizes and you can choose the correct size according to the amount of waste you’ll generate. The most common sizes of containers are 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 cubic yards. For a home remodeling project, a 20 cubic yard dumpster will usually suffice.
Q. How long can I keep the roll off container?
A. Most companies will let you rent them for a week at a time for a specified price. They’ll come to your home and place the container and when the week is up, they’ll come and pick it up for you.
Q. Are there certain materials that cannot be placed in the dumpster?
A. When you rent your container from St Paul Roll Off Dumpster Rental, they’ll give you a list of unacceptable items. This list may include items such as hazardous materials, chemicals, batteries, flammable materials, motor oil and appliances. When filling the dumpster, it has to be level at the top and nothing can be sticking out.
Q. How much does it cost to rent a roll off dumpster?
A. The price varies depending on the size of container you’ll need for your project. The price includes the container rental and the dropping off and picking up of the container. You’ll also have to pay disposal fees and sales tax.
