Have you ever wondered how we determine dumpster pricing?

If you are about to rent a dumpster, pricing is clearly one of your main concerns. It’s good to know how dumpster rental services work prior to gaining their services. And here’s all you should know about dumpster pricing before renting one out.

There are three main focuses when it comes to dumpster pricing; the time, the content/ size, and the location. Let’s discuss each and understand how it affects your pocket.

  • The Time

Before you are renting out a dumpster, it’s wise to have an idea about the time period you are going to use it. For how long are you going to rent a dumpster? If you are going to rent it for 14 days, it will probably be less expensive than renting one for a month. If you rent from Dumpster Near Me for 14 days but require its service for more than that, it will simply cost you an additional $10.00 daily. Apart from that, most dumpster rental services will make it expensive for you, if dumpsters are kept on-site longer, as they are counted as demurrage days.

You overusing a dumpster may reflect in your service provider losing other contracts or business opportunities, hence the additional charge.

  • The Content/ Size

What’s in your dumpster? That’s another factor that determines the pricing. What goes in your dumpster ultimately adds up and makes it heavy. Things like wood, metal, and building debris which often make up a dumpster’s contents can accumulate and end up becoming quite hefty. Dumpsters come in different sizes and each has its own capacity. A specific tonnage will be permitted within each size dumpster. For instance, our most popular dumpster, 21 Yard Roll Off Dumpster is 14 × 7 × 6 in. with a capacity of 3 tons. You will be charged an overage fee on your rental if you exceed the tonnage.

Then, there are materials dumpster rental companies don’t allow you to put in. At Dumpster Near Me, we don’t accept appliances, asbestos, barrels, batteries, chemical products, computers, contaminated oils, and many other materials. These are more materials that won’t be accepted by us:

  • Aerosol cans
  • All liquids
  • Animals
  • Antifreeze
  • Dirt
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Food waste
  • Hazardous waste
  • Herbicides & pesticides
  • Lubricating/ hydraulic oil
  • Medical waste
  • Microwaves
  • Monitors
  • Motor oil
  • Oil filters
  • Other flammable liquids
  • Paint
  • Propane tanks
  • Radioactive material
  • Railroad ties
  • Solvents
  • Televisions
  • Tires
  • Transmission oil

Putting in unacceptable materials or overloading may cause severe damage to a dumpster. Sometimes, if the weight is too much to bear, it will require fixing and maintenance that surpass its usual maintenance pratices, hence the additional charge.

  • The Location

Dumpster pricing varies according to your location as well. As we provide you with both delivery and pick-up facilities for your convenience, you may or may not be subject to fuel surcharges. Check out fuel surcharges for your city in Illinois or Iowa.


What Can You Do To Avoid Additional Charges And Save Money?

It’s really easy! Stay within the limits.

If you rent a dumpster for 14 days, stay within that time. An additional day will cost you $10! Also, stay within your weight allowance as an additional ton will cost you $50! If you are overloading the dumpster or putting in unaccepted materials, you will have to bear the cost of additional charges for return trips! Everything must be leveled at the top of the dumpster and nothing can be hanging or sticking out of the top. That’s the rule.

Avoid these mistakes/ extra charges and you can save hundreds, if not thousands!
