Express Roll Off Dumpsters Guide to Construction Dumpster Rentals
Demolition site roll off rental
There are several key factors to consider before renting local roll-off dumpsters for immense commercial construction or demolition / renovation projects. Some of the key respects include: the type of debris disposed of, the volume of waste, the estimated project’s duration, the availability of the local dumpster rental provider’s roll off stock, turnaround time, pricing, and more. Proper scheduling can easily reduce dumpster rental prices relative to a large project by 22 percent or more.
FOR EXAMPLE: A contractor who plans carefully while working on a commercial demolition project selects a dumpster rental company that can supply three (3) 30 yard construction dumpster rentals that are switched out when the container becomes full. This total cost comes out to $1,200. If the contractor had gone with a dumpster rental company that only had 20 yard dumpsters available, the contractor would need five containers at a cost of roughly $300 a piece, or $1,500. The first scenario represents a 25% savings, even though the total container volume available for debris is the relatively the same in both instances.
The above example is hypothetical, but it accurately represents a very real concern that contractors should consider when renting construction site dumpsters. A bit of due diligence can pay off in the end, especially for industrial-sized construction or renovation projects.
What do construction and demolition dumpsters cost?
Express Roll Off dumpsters discloses their roll off rental costs. The following is the average dumpster rental prices for nationwide, local dumpster carriers:
Roll Off Dumpster Size & National Average Cost
10 yard dumpster $304
15 yard dumpster $344
20 yard dumpster $383
30 yard dumpster $441
Express Roll Off has waste management dumpster rental prices that are much lower than those listed above. We are a licensed and insured local dumpster rental carrier that services all cities in Brevard County Florida, such as:
Palm Bay, Melbourne, Titusville, Merritt Island, Rockledge, Viera, Subtree, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Melbourne Beach, West Melbourne, Malabar, Sebastian, Indialantic, and more.
TIP: Ask Express’s contractor’s specials, or for volume discounts for renting multiple dumpsters (3 or more). Express Roll Off offers deals to contractors working on job sites within Brevard County, Florida who plan on renting multiple dumpsters on an ongoing-basis. Express’s rates end up being cheaper than Waste Management dumpster rental prices and the majority of the other larger chains.
Generally it ends up being more cost-effective to rent the largest size dumpster available (30 cubic yard dumpster) for the type of debris your job site is generating. Selecting a larger dumpster size saves your crew from renting a second, third, etc. roll off, that’s hundreds of dollars you’ll save on rental costs. If you’re disposing of dense or heavy materials, the 15 yard dumpster filled 3/4 of the way full is the size roll off Express utilizes. Heavy materials include: concrete, roofing shingles, dirt, rock, asphalt, and other heavy debris.
Estimating the amount of waste at job site
Construction job site dumpster rentals
Accurate waste estimations are critical in minimizing your disposal costs. FEMA came up with a formula to help estimate the debris generated during your demolition project.
Commercial Building Demolition:
Length x Width x Height x 0.33 / 27 = Cubic Yards of Debris Generated
Single-Family Home Demolition:
Length x Width x S (number of total stories) x 0.20 x VCM (vegetative cover multiplier) = Cubic Yards of Debris Generated
***(Vegetative cover multiplier = yard waste)***
One ton of construction and demolition debris (C&D) is equivalent to 2 cubic yards of waste.
Once you’ve calculated your debris estimate, it’s much easier to access your roll-off dumpster needs. For industrial projects, the use of a 2 to 3 30 cubic yard roll off dumpsters, and arranging for frequent switch outs (or dump returns) is probably your best option.
When disposing of heavy debris, such as: shingles or concrete, a larger roll off is generally not used. This type of high-density, low-volume waste is disposed of in smaller-sized containers, such as 15 cubic yard dumpsters. In fact, Express Roll Off requires the use of smaller containers for heavy material disposal; since our roll off trucks have to work much harder to haul these heavier items.
