What impacts the price of a dumpster rental in Grand Rapids, MI?

The three biggest factors that will impact a roll off price is your location, how much debris you will be throwing, and what type of material you will be throwing in the bin. Location has an impact on price because each city municipality and landfill can have different fees and taxes on disposing the junk. The amount of debris will affect the price if you have extra charges for over-filling your dumpster or going over the weight limit. The type of material will affect the price if you throw tires, mattresses, electronics or hazardous material in the bin. We will let you know what these are when you call.

Can I fill a dumpster to the top?

You must not fill your dumpster rental higher than 3/4 full so we can transport the bin safely. Laws state that we have to cover the top of the bins to make sure no debris flies out of it while on the road, so filling it to high might cause a problem with getting the cover on.

What size dumpster is best for a kitchen remodel project?

We recommend a 20 or 30 yard dumpster for that type of project. Give us a call and we can help you narrow down your size.
