"I have used this service twice now 2 years apart and both times found this company to be friendly helpful and very professional. They do what they say they will," and willingly pick up the dumpster earlier than scheduled without complaining.

-donna D.

"Great. I priced about 8 companies that provided this service. had the size I needed for the best price. They also delivered the dumpster" on schedule and picked up with no delay. It was also clean when it was delivered. The administrative staff who scheduled my call was awesome. I just don't remember her name.

Dumpster Service and Garbage Collection

While most homeowners can take care of basic trash disposal on their own, large jobs, such cleaning out your basement or renovating your bathroom, require a more complex process.

20 things to throw away
Organization - Home & Garage

Looking to get your home organized? Here's a list of 20 things to get rid of quickly.

We've all been there. Even the nicest of neighbors can have some pretty annoying habits.

Before you toss it, check the label. Hazardous items — like batteries and ink cartridges — should be disposed safely, which doesn't mean at the curb!

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.


You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.




Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

Dumpster Rental reviews in San Antonio


Great service. Courteous drivers. Moderate cost. Bin was placed without harm to driveway. Instructions on bin doors provided. Came and got bin in record time.

This is the 3rd time in the past year I've used their services while cleaning out a house of a deceased relative. They have always delivered and picked up on time. On this occasion they provided a dumpster on very short notice. They were also very accommodating when I needed a dumpster over the 2014 Christmas holidays. I recommend them highly. ...More Based on research for my first rental I would say their prices are competitive with other providers.
- Bradley P.

I can't say enough good things about San . I first used their services in November 2013 when I was remodeling my kitchen. Neenah was super easy to deal with and was able to deliver the dumpster the following day. I had some specific requests regarding the placement of the dumpster, and knew it ...More would be challenging to get the dumpster into my backyard due to the driveway having a tight squeeze between the side of the house and fence. Neenah ended up delivering the first dumpster herself and was able to get the dumpster right in the spot where I wanted it. The 10 yard dumpster was a perfect size to hold all of the debris removed when gutting my kitchen down to the studs. On the 9th day I received a call from asking if I would be down with the dumpster on the 10th day according to the rental contract, or if I needed it longer. I told them I was complete and the dumpster was removed the following day, and you could never tell that it was ever there. My driveway was swept clean and there were not even any little bits of drywall left behind.
When I started to remodel one of my bathrooms last month, I knew I was going to need another dumpster to haul off all of the debris and save me from making a hundred trips to the bulk waste facility. The experience mirrored my first experience with the company. Neenah answered the phone, took my order, and I had the dumpster the next day in the same spot where the first was dropped off. I received a call on the day prior to pick up, and the dumpster was picked up the following day and the driveway was swept clean.
I will be using San again in the coming months when I remodel another bathroom, or any other big projects around that house that produce a large amount of debris.
- William P.

After describing what I was trying to dispose of, they recommended a 4 cubic yard bin which was the perfect choice. I was able to provide details and payment info by email. They delivered when promised and placed it exactly where I requested. I filled it to the brim with rock and gravel from a small patio and walkway I was removing, then called to ...More have it removed. The next day it was gone, and they had even swept up the driveway. Perfect experience and the most competitive price I found for disposing of rock and gravel.
- daniel C.

To be able to have a dumpster IN MY DRIVEWAY was so helpful. And the dumpster was clean and brightly painted no foul odors. The instructions were . We filled it to the brim. I think the whole neighborhood took note. Thank you, Neenah, , and everyone!
- Susan W.

We had a huge garage project to complete in a short period of time. They delivered the first bin on a Thursday, which gave us an extra day at no charge. We had to have them unload and deliver a second bin as the job was actually larger than we anticipated. So, the actual cost per bin was $421.09 for ~five days. They were punctual and professional ...More and did exactly as promised. We were not bothered during delivery or pick up - they just placed the bin as we asked them to. Neenah is very kind and courteous and we will use this company in the future if necessary. We have recommended them to several of our friends. Their pricing was very competitive.
- Linda B.

Spoke to a very friendly Neenah to get prices on the different sizes of their dumpsters (prices online would be nice). Once we decided on the size we called and gave her the date it was needed. The dumpster was delivered on time and put exactly where we needed it by a very courteous and friendly driver. When we were done loading ...More it, they came and picked it up at the time they promised. The whole experience was perfection.
- Ginger S.

Outstanding...from the first contact to the last, these folks are true professionals. I needed a dumpster for a rehab project and started calling around to get competitive pricing. The prices were all over the place and some had fees that would only be calculated after the job was finished. Very unnerving situation. Then I called these wonderul ...More people and got straight answers, detailed pricing and a super can do attitude. Took the plunge and signed up and guess what? No surprises on my bill, everything was on time and as promised. I would strongly recommend you call them anytime you need this kind of help! We will use them every time we need this kind of service.
