4 Types of Roll-Off Dumpsters – Which One is Best For You?

If you need to remove a large amount of debris and you don’t want to cause a huge mess then you may need a roll-off dumpster. Roll-off dumpsters are used for collecting and disposing of all kinds of debris. You may have seen them before outside of new home builds, construction sites, and in disaster zones for cleanup. They are large top-open metal dumpsters designed to be transported easily and have the ability to “roll off” wherever you need it. They come in many different sizes and can be rented for as long as you need it.

Before you call for a quote, read these short descriptions of the different types to help you determine if you need a roll-off dumpster.

1. Construction Roll-off Dumpster

If you are planning a major renovation or building a new home, then you need a construction roll-off dumpster. If you are new to construction or doing a renovation on your home for the first time, then you are well aware of the need for new building materials. However, some first-time remodelers make the mistake of not accounting for the old materials that are being removed from the home or building. Construction roll-off dumpsters are ideal for collecting and removing those large debris items that result from major construction. These items include building materials such as drywall, flooring, tile, wood, windows, glass, siding and more.

2. Residential Roll-off Dumpster

It’s not just renovations and new builds that may require a roll-off dumpster. Sometimes a major cleaning job calls for it, too. Residential roll off dumpsters are perfect for household clean-outs, clean-ups, general junk removal, small renovations, and moving or selling preparation. This roll-off dumpster is slightly different than the construction roll-off dumpster in that is used more for large trash items from inside the home. Household trash roll-off dumpsters can be used to dispose of all types of furniture, carpet, boxes, clothes, appliances, attic debris, garage debris, and more. Basically, when you are doing major spring cleaning or updating outdated items in your home, then you need a residential roll-off dumpster. 

3. Concrete Roll-off Dumpster

One of the more difficult items to dispose of is concrete. If you are planning on digging up your concrete driveway to replace it, then you need a concrete roll-off dumpster. Concrete roll-off dumpsters are used for either “clean” concrete or “clean” dirt loads. “Clean” concrete refers to concrete that has been broken up from a driveway, foundation, or walkway to be disposed of. “Clean” dirt refers to fill dirt, or dirt that can be repurposed. Some concrete can be recycled and needs to be disposed of properly. Using a concrete roll-off dumpster helps keep the load together and free from other debris when removing it from the property. 

4. Yard Waste Roll-off Dumpster

Are you planning on doing major architectural changes to your yard or property? Do you need to clear a portion of land for development? Are you changing up your landscape design? If so, you will likely accumulate a lot of debris from plants, trees, and other landscape features. Yard waste roll-off dumpsters are great for large landscaping and small land-clearing projects. Yard waste dumpsters are commonly used for cleanup projects involving shrubs, grass clippings, branches, leaves, and small trees. Using a yard waste roll-off dumpster will save you tons of time and headache when it comes time to transport the waste from your property.
