Tips for Choosing the Right Dumpster for Your Needs

Last updated 3 years ago

Dumpster rental offers large-scale waste disposal customized to suit your needs. Whether you are renting a dumpster for residential, commercial, or construction use, there are a number of factors to consider. Understanding the options available will help you make the right choice for your home or business.


Check Your Waste Removal Options
If your dumpster will be emptied by a public waste removal service, it’s important to find out which type of garbage truck will be handling your waste. Dumpsters are available in either front-loading or rear-loading models, and the best option for your needs will depend upon your garbage truck’s design. A front loader garbage truck can only handle a front-loading dumpster, while a rear loader can only service a rear-loading model. If your community uses side-loading garbage trucks, these cannot handle dumpsters and you will need to discuss waste removal with your dumpster rental agency. If you plan to use your dumpster for recycling purposes, let your rental company know ahead of time. Recycling dumpsters often have special markings and must be serviced separately to ensure waste is taken to the proper facility.

Determine Your Space Needs
Both front-loading and rear-loading dumpsters are available in sizes ranging from two to eight cubic yards. If you require more volume to house waste materials, you may wish to consider a roll off dumpster. Roll off dumpsters are most commonly used for larger construction projects and can accommodate up to 40 cubic yards of waste. However, it’s important to note that roll off dumpsters can only be emptied by dump trucks specifically designed to handle these types of receptacles. Regardless of the type of dumpster you choose, make sure you have an outdoor area large enough to accommodate its size. offers dumpster rental services throughout NJ and the five boroughs.
