Front-Load vs. Roll-off: Which Dumpster Container Type Is Right for You?

Last updated 5 years ago

No matter how hard you try, there’s a good chance that any project you undertake is going to produce a lot of trash. When the time comes, you’ll need either a front-load or a roll-off dumpster for easy waste removal. Here are a few factors you should consider before choosing between a front-load and a roll-off dumpster

Project Size

Different jobs produce varying amounts of debris. Before you rent a dumpster, you should think about the amount of waste your project will produce. If you’re remodeling your kitchen, for instance, an enormous 20-yard roll-off dumpster should do the job. If you’re doing a little spring cleaning, a 2-yard front-load dumpster will suit your needs.

Type of Waste

Front-load and roll-off dumpsters are designed to handle different kinds of waste. Unfortunately, front-load dumpsters cannot accommodate large pieces of trash due to the small size of their openings. If you anticipate an upcoming project to produce many large pieces of waste, you’ll be better off with the open-top access of a roll-off dumpster. If you want to keep your waste safe at night, however, you’ll find the enhanced security of a front-load dumpster to better suit your needs.  

Length of Rental

Before you rent a dumpster, you should do your best to estimate the length of rental. The 10-, 20-, and 30-yard roll-off dumpsters are typically used for short-term projects, while the more compact front-load dumpsters are designed for long-term use. Carefully estimating the rental timeframe can help you rent the appropriate container and reduce costs.
