When you are getting ready to rent a dumpster, the first step is determining which size suits your needs the best. You will need to estimate how much waste you need to dump, which can be done my measuring your pile of debris by the length and width and dividing by 27 to get the cubic yards of waste. Once you have the cubic yards that you'll need you can take a look at the capacity for 3, 6, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 cubic yard dumpsters and choose one that will work. It's important that you have enough space, so if you are on the border between two different sizes you should choose the larger one, or you may have to order another dumpster, or pay for it to be hauled to the junk yard and back to your property, which will cost more than just getting the right sized roll off right from the start.
There are two main types of dumpsters, which are available in a few different sizes, they are:

Here at XRefer, we are used to fielding tons of questions from customers looking to rent a dumpster. Here's a few of the most common questions that our customers ask us:
You can get rid of a variety of things such as roof shingles, siding, furniture, general trash, clothes, construction debris, yard waste and much more. You can't put oil, paint, aerosols, refrigerants, tires, hazardous materials, batteries, tree stumps, asbestos, fuel, or adhesives.
In some cases you can get a same day delivery, but not always. If you know that you will need a dumpster delivered on a certain day, it's always a good idea to schedule it a few weeks in advance to make sure there is availability.
Dumpster rental costs range from $150 to $550 depending on the size you need, and what you are disposing of.
Deliver is often included in the quoted dumpster cost, but in some cases it's in addition, so it's important to ask what the quote includes. If it's added on it usually costs about $100.
This is important to ask, as additional fees can really tack on a lot of unexpected expenses. Such possible fees include going over the weight capacity, delivery and pick-up fees, and disposal fees.
Depending on where you plan to keep your dumpster, you may need to obtain a permit from your local city government. When you obtain an estimate from local dumpster companies they'll let you know if you need a permit or not, and if there are any fees associated with it.
It's recommended that you distribute waste and debris evenly throughout the container, so that it doesn't become off balance. You also cannot fill it above the edge of the dumpster, as this is dangerous to transport. If you fill it above the line, you will likely be charged an additional fee.
You can keep the dumpster at your property for as little as one day up to 28 days. If you are working on a project and need to have weekly hauling, your local dumpster company can set that up for you.
No, if you give good directions about where it needs to be dropped off, then you do not need to be present when it's dropped off or picked up.
Yes, often times homeowner's would like the dumpster delivered, filled, and hauled away ASAP so it's not taking up space on their property.
It's possible to find a company that will offer dumpster sales, but it's rare. In most cases it just makes more sense to rent anyway.
