Roll Off Dumpsters
How to use Roll Off Dumpsters for Projects
Roll off dumpsters come in handy when it comes to disposing of waste in areas where there is a lot of waste that is being generated. These areas include houses being remodeled, cleaning and construction sites.
The containers are often large, wheeled with open tops for dumping trash. They are rectangular and either top loaded or front-loaded depending on the size of the container.
How Roll Off Dumpsters are Used
As discussed earlier, the roll-off dumpsters can be used in many areas where lots of waste is produced. The use of the container starts when the roll-off trucks deliver them to the site. The containers are expressed in cubic yards. The sizes that you rent depend on the expected volume of trash. You may pick a 10 cubic yards container, a 20 cubic yards container, or 30 to 40 yards depending on your need.
Specific containers can carry a pre-determined weight limit. If you exceed the stated weight limit, you are going to pay extra for the extra weight. The extra amount to pay is computed per every extra pound of waste.
Always cover the container with a tarp when you are not using it. The tarp covers the container from the rain that may wet your waste making it heavier and way the stated dumpster weight limit.
You can dispose of almost all types of waste generated in your project. This includes the yard waste, regular household waste, and the construction debris. If you are going to dispose of heavy materials such as concrete blocks or brick, keep in mind the weight limits. These materials take little room but are heavy. You may reach the container’s limit when you are hardly past halfway. The waste can be dropped into the container by earthmovers with hydraulic systems to scoop and throw the trash into the container.
Trash that Cannot be Disposed of in a Dumpster
A few materials cannot be disposed into the roll-off container. Most of the materials are those that lie under hazardous waste. There are regulations that have been put in place on disposal of such waste materials. They include electronics, petroleum products and paint, chemicals, batteries, and tires. There may be other materials that are prohibited depending on the state. It is important to confirm with the rental firm on waste that you can and cannot dispose into the container. If not, you may be charged extra for handling and cleaning the container off the hazardous waste.
