Many home and business owners like to start the New Year with a remodeled or de-cluttered space. If you are planning a big project like this, you’re going to need to rent a dumpster.
But for many small businesses or homeowners, this isn’t something you shop for every day. So how do you know what to ask for?
Let’s look some terminology. For temporary, short term jobs, most property owners need what we call a “roll-off dumpster,” aka “roll-away box.” These are open-topped steel boxes on wheels up to 6 feet high, with doors on one end that allow you to walk in or roll in a hand cart and dump your debris. Dumpster rental from ABH Services Inc. includes padding to protect your driveway.
Here are some of the issues you need to think about when planning your roll-off dumpster rental:
Cost of Dumpster Rental
ABH Services has the most competitive rates in the region, and are often below the national average. Rates will depend on many variables. These include: proximity to, and fees for, landfills in your area; the type of debris we will be hauling away; duration of the rental, and, of course, the size of the dumpster. Call us at 781-941-2422 for a free, no obligation quote.
ABH Services has a size to service any need. Our dumpsters are 10, 15, 20 or 25 cubic yards. To put that in perspective, think about the typical permanent, closed-top dumpsters you see outside restaurants or grocery stores. Typically, these are 6 cubic yards, and hold about 72 bags of trash. With that in mind, you can start to estimate the size of roll-off dumpster that is likely to fit your needs:
10 Cubic Yards – 14’ long x 8’ wide. Good for small projects such as a bathroom remodel.
15 Cubic Yards – 16’ long x 8’ wide. For larger cleanouts and demolition, such as a kitchen remodel .
20 Cubic Yards – 22’ long x 8’wide. For larger projects, several room demos, basements, garages.
25 Cubic Yards – 16’ long x 8’ wide x 6’ high – For several room demolition projects or roof tear offs.
Type of Debris
To quote you the best rate, we will need to know what kind of debris you will be loading in your dumpster. ABH Services Inc. does not limit the type of debris we handle. We are a full-service demolition, recycling and restoration business that can handle the widest range of junk you need removed, including appliances, tires and electronics. We also destroy hard drives to protect your privacy.
Be aware that in many cases, you, or the property owner, will need a permit from your municipal public works department, and fees may be involved. Most municipalities will want to know the dates of dumpster delivery and pickup, and specifics about the location you want. For instance, if you hope to have the dumpster placed on the street alongside the curb, you will need to insure it can be a minimum distance from corners (usually 20 feet). You should expect to identify a spot that avoids bus stops, taxi stands, hydrants, loading zones, parking meters, etc.
Does your job require specialized services, such as concrete or metal cutting? ABH Services has the full array of specialty saws, jackhammers, skid steers and manpower to help you get the job done. We can cut or break it up so you can dispose of it.
