Whether you’re a do-it-yourself enthusiast, contractor or business owner, a dumpster rental is one of the most convenient junk removal options. You probably already use regularly scheduled trash and recycling pickup services but still may be wondering about what a dumpster rental is and why you should rent one.

While renting a dumpster may seem like an extra time-consuming step in your project, it can pay off if your goal is to remove large amounts of debris and waste quickly and affordably.

What is a dumpster rental?

A dumpster rental is a heavy-duty waste container that can be used for large cleanup projects and rented on a temporary basis. The dumpster is rectangular in shape, made of durable steel and has an open-top to load junk, household debris and construction materials.

How much does it cost to rent a dumpster?

The average cost of renting a dumpster varies based on the type of debris, dumpster size and rental length.

When it comes to dumpster rentals, fees are common and add up fast. Five Star Clutter Removal offers all-inclusive pricing with no hidden dump fees and always includes the cost of delivery, pickup and unlimited weight.

What are the benefits of renting a dumpster?

Dumpsters are built to handle almost any cleanup and cleanout job, from landscaping to remodeling projects. It’s a great way to contain any debris and maintain a safe working environment at your home or job site. Plus, it often takes less time and effort than hauling trash to the nearest dump or scheduling a collection with the township.

What size dumpster do I need for my project?

The dumpster you need depends on the size of your project and the type of materials you’re throwing away. A dumpster’s volume is measured in cubic yards and its exterior is normally measured in feet. This way, customers know the amount of waste it can hold and how it will fit at their site.

Our units are brand new, well maintained and available in four sizes to fit any type of project.

  • 12 yards
  • 16 yards
  • 24 yards
  • 32 yards
