20 Yard Dumpster
The most popular rentals tend to be the 20 yard dumpster. This dumpster is perfect for room remodels, yard cleanups, decluttering your home, and it fits nicely on the average driveway. Twenty-yard containers include front-loading doors to allow you to carry in bulky or heavy items more conveniently. The typical dimension of a 20 yard trash container is 22 feet long, 4.5 feet high and 7.5 feet wide. This dumpster can hold up to 20 cubic yards of matter, which is about 120 13-gallon trash bags or about eight pickup truck loads of trash. Be aware of how quickly the weight can add up. Your 20 yard dumpster can hold 2-3 tons or 4,000-6,000 pounds.
A good note to remember is to cover your dumpster if you are throwing away materials that hold water. Materials like carpeting and padding, sheetrock, and wood soak up water and increase the weight substantially. If you are throwing away these types of material and the weather forecast calls for rain, cover your dumpster with a large tarp. You don't want to be dumping water-soaked materials as water can quickly build up in the bottom of the dumpster.
20 yard roll off dumpster prices can range. Rates include delivery, pickup, taxes, disposal, and a weight limit. The exact price will depend on your area and the type of debris you are placing in the container.
Also, note if you need permits for your dumpster use. Laws vary from area to area, but generally, you will need a permit if your dumpster is going to sit on public property, a roadway or sidewalk. There are times you will need a permit even if you unload your dumpster on your driveway. Contact your city to determine the rules and fees for your area. Your city is only trying to protect the environment and your neighborhood, and if you want to discard residential or hazardous substances, you very well may need a permit.
There are drop off requirement for your container, and some of these requirements are:
• Have about 50 feet in length in your driveway so the dumpster can be easily dropped off.
• Have your permit on your premises at the time of delivery.
• Clear a minimum of 14 to 18 feet of vertical space. This amount of space enables the dumpster to be put in the right position. Make sure the delivery area is free of low hanging tree branches or utility wires.
• Pay attention to the weight limit and debris restrictions.
