Homeowners spend anywhere between $90 to $850 for dumpster rentals, with an average cost of $395. This cost covers delivery of the dumpster and pick up after it’s full (or after the rental period is over). Of course, small dumpsters will cost much less than larger ones.
Here are average prices for typical dumpster prices:
No permit is required if you will be placing the dumpster on your private property, such as a front yard or driveway. If placing it on a sidewalk, street or any other public space you will need to check with the authorities near you for proper permits to avoid fines.
If you need a much smaller dumpster rental, a Bagster may be your best option. With a cost of about $142 for a Bagster rental, you can obtain a unit that’s collapsible, easy to place outside your home, and simple to use.
There are also other factors that will affect the cost of a dumpster rental. While most companies charge per week, you may need the dumpster for a longer period. Overage charges per day range between $5 to $10, and you can get a bargain on renting for a longer period from the get go.
For large projects requiring 15-yard to 40-yard dumpsters budget between $700 and $850 - for smaller projects requiring 10-yard dumpsters or smaller, budget $500 to $600.
For most average sized homes, a 10-yard dumpster works well. It has a length of about 16 feet and a width of 8 feet, making it ideal for projects such as home renovations, moving, or simply getting rid of large amounts of waste from the home.
A dumpster rental gives you the independence of handling waste according to your own schedule. You can hire a dumpster for your home or business and fill it up during the duration of the rental period. When it’s full, the rental company will pick it up from your home for disposal.
