Getting The Right Size Dumpster

When researching the right dumpster for your upcoming project, the most important consideration is predicting the type of debris that will be generated, and the total amount of waste material that you will need to have removed. The waste management industry standardizes roll-off dumpster sizes by measurement in cubic yards, and Crazy Dumpster Rental Kalamazoo provides containers in 4 key sizes: 10-yards, 20-yards 30-yards, and 40-yards. What follows below are some additional specifics on these roll-off container sizes, along with a quick reference guide of some of their common uses:

10 Cubic Yard Container

(10 feet long x 7 feet wide x 4.5 feet high)
If you’re renovating one or two rooms, a small kitchen or a small bathroom, the “ten-yarder” might be right for you.

20 Cubic Yard Container

(20 feet long x 8 feet wide x 3 feet high)
Use this roll-off container if you’re remodeling two or more rooms or a large kitchen and bathroom.

30 Cubic Yard Container

(22 feet long x 7.5 feet wide x 6 feet high)
The “thirty-yarder” is the most popular size that we deliver and it is always in demand in greater Kalamazoo because most homes and properties have a suitable area where the container can reside, without too many complaints from the neighbors. You can fit carpeting, drywall, and wood in a thirty yarder without too much trouble.

40 Cubic Yard Container

(22 feet long X 8 feet wide X 7 feet high)
Our “forty-yarder” is a monster roll-off, and it’s most commonly called-in by professional construction and demolition contractors for large new-build projects, as well as home, office, large-structure, and facility renovations.

How It Works: The Dumpster Rental Process

Now that you’ve identified your need for a roll-off dumpster rental, there are three simple steps that you will want to follow.

The first is gathering the information you need so that we can provide you with a price quote. For example, we need to know the type of waste material you will be putting in the container (also referred to as a “debris box”), and how much material there will be. Through a brief discussion together we can help make a recommendation on the most appropriate size, and accurately estimate how many times we’ll be hauling it away from the site.

Note: Whenever uncertainty exists with respect to the appropriate size of debris-box for your project, we usually recommended the larger size to avoid needing to rent two containers if the first turns out not to be large enough.

The second step is to give some thought to specific questions you may wish to ask us to help make sure that everything goes smoothly with your project, and that you are satisfied.
The third step is picking a good location where the container will be placed and properly preparing the site to make certain your project runs efficiently, and to avoid any potential damage to your property. Contact Crazy Dumpster Company today to set your project up for success!

Special Insert: Regarding Hazardous Materials

When you set aside the things that don’t belong in a dumpster, you help the professionals here at Crazy Dumpster Rental Kalamazoo to protect the environment, while at the same time keeping the dumpster in safe and working order for the next customer. You may even save a little money in the process. The following materials should generally be kept out of the local landfills, and therefore your rental dumpster:

Electronics Hazardous Waste

Computers, hard drives, printers, TVs, cell phones, VCRs, and DVD players should not be disposed of in a dumpster. In some states, it is actually illegal to put them in a landfill. This could translate into a fine for a disposal company that unwittingly dumps them along with their other trash. Local retailers may be able to lawfully dispose of your spent electronics. Some municipalities may collect electronics from the curb periodically. There are even online services that will pay for old phones and computers as they are able to salvage some of their components.

Batteries Of All Kinds

Most people know that batteries should be kept out of a dumpster, the same way they are usually kept out of the regular trash. Batteries contain lead, mercury, and cadmium, and these substances can seep into the ground over time and contaminate the environment. So let’s refrain from discarding batteries of all kinds, including alkaline, car batteries, rechargeable batteries, or lithium batteries in your rental waste container bin. There are
Hazardous waste facilities that are specially trained, equipped, and licensed to handle batteries, as well as many auto parts stores and other retail businesses that sell batteries. Even local grocery stores may accept certain types of batteries for recycling and responsible disposal.

Lightbulbs

Both fluorescent and LED lightbulbs should be kept out of your dumpster rental and brought to a hazardous materials center to be disposed of safely.

Tires

It is illegal to dispose of tires in landfills in Michigan. Check out the State Of Michigan Environmental website for programs and resources regarding the disposal and recycling of tires, here: www.michigan.gov/mienvironment

Chemicals

It should come as no surprise that chemical waste is not allowed in Michigan landfills, and so it must not be disposed of in dumpsters. Types of chemical waste include the following:

  • Solvents
  • Paint
  • Oil
  • Gasoline
  • Pesticides
  • Transmission fluid
  • Lead-based household cleaners

Environmentally hazardous chemicals can be properly discarded at designated drop-off locations, via municipal collections, and even some mail-based services will accept them through the use of pre-paid postage labels.

Frequently Asked Questions By Crazy Dumpster Rental Kalamazoo Customers

What is the weight allowance of my dumpster?

Most landfills have a specific weight limit for roll-off dumpsters that will result in overage charges if it is exceeded. These limits can vary from site to site, and it is important to understand weight limits prior to confirming your dumpster rental. If you do not know how much your materials weigh, then you will need to rent a higher capacity dumpster, just to be safe.

When exactly will the dumpster be dropped off?

It is a relatively standard practice in the waste removal industry to only provide a delivery day for customers. If you need a dumpster at a specific time, the best way to ensure its there when you need it is to get the container delivered the day before. Generally speaking, the schedule is determined on a daily basis, which is less than ideal for customers. Just remember to be patient and find out the company’s delivery policy prior to renting a dumpster.

What will happen if I exceed the rental period?

The average Crazy Dumpster Rental Kalamazoo rental term is about 10 days, which means some waste removal services offer less and some have more days. It is important to find out your rental period, especially if you have an extensive waste removal project. If you need the roll-off dumpster for more than the agreed-upon rental period, it should be in the neighborhood of $10 per day.

Will I need to be onsite for delivery or pick up?

Usually, rental services do not require customers to be present during the delivery or the pick up of your dumpster. Some companies may have a charge in upwards of $100 if you are not there during delivery. If you are interested in avoiding hassles and saving money, pick a dumpster rental provider that will deliver and pick up the container without you needing to be there.

Are there any non-hazardous prohibited materials?

Every company has its own set of materials, that if put in the dumpster will result in additional fees. It is essential to compare the company’s prohibited materials with the things you want to dispose of. Every day, people attempt to slip prohibited items into their dumpsters…and 90% of them get caught. This isn’t just bad for your wallet, but also bad for the environment to put a restricted material in a dumpster.

Do I need to schedule a pick-up when the dumpster is full?

Some dumpster rental services require customers to schedule the pick-up. This is not to implement additional fees, but rather to give customers an opportunity to remove all of their unwanted materials. Remember if you have to schedule a pick-up, give the company as much notice as possible.

Will I automatically be charged if I exceed the weight limit?

This is a necessary question, especially if you plan on flirting with overage charges. In most cases, if the overage fee is under a specific amount, the fee will automatically be charged to the card used to secure the dumpster. Many people are not comfortable with this aspect, so be sure to ask this question!

Do your dumpsters have doors?

Most roll-off rental units have a door to facilitate the ease of walking or rolling in your unwanted materials. This makes removing waste very easy. If your dumpster arrives without a door, then it is too late. Remember to ask this quick question.
