Understanding Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Prices

Roll-Off Dumpster

It’s often said that no matter what kind of construction site or event you’re working on, you’re going to need dumpsters. Okay, maybe not often said, but it is well known that trash and debris build up fast, and having a roll-off dumpster on site is extremely important for keeping the area clean and safe.

By working with local providers and vendors all over the country, ASAP Site Services is able to offer the lowest rent a dumpster prices available in just about any market. These prices vary based on a few different factors, so we’d like to share more info to make sure you understand exactly how we arrive at our listed costs and how much it costs to rent a dumpster for your use case.

The Basics

To start with, dumpster size, the length of the rental, and product availability form the base cost of your dumpster rentals. Standard rental durations are 10 days in length and include a maximum tonnage per unit. Product availability varies, so prices may be slightly different between orders of the same size of dumpster in your region.

Local Elements

Prices differ most widely by region and distance travelled. For example, if your project site is 50 miles away from the nearest landfill, your expenses may be higher than someone 10 miles away. There are also different regional costs associated with city fees, environmental fees, and landfill disposal rates in a given area—someone in small-town Kansas is unlikely to pay the same rates as a customer in Los Angeles, California. We’ll work all of these factors into your estimate when you request a dumpster rental quote for your zip code.

The Franchise Factor

One potential issue that could affect pricing is whether or not your location is in a franchised zone. This means the city or municipality has a contract with a single entity who takes care of any trash removal and dumping in the area. Unlike most parts of the United States, we have less wiggle room to negotiate with franchise vendors because of the lack of competition, so we can’t lower our dumpster rental prices in these regions as much as we’d like. To see if this is the case in your area, contact the department of public works and ask about any trash and debris franchise agreements.

By being open and honest about our pricing policies, we’ve been able to build some incredible relationships in communities all across the country. We’d love to add more satisfied customers to that list by helping you out with any project you may be working on. Contact us anytime to inquire about how much it costs to rent a dumpster in your area.
