Q. What's a roll-off container or roll-off dumpster?

Roll-off containers or roll-off dumpsters are containers made out of metal and used to throw away large amounts of material. Usually used by remodelers, construction contractors and demolition crews. After delivery of your roll-off container, you fill the dumpster and we haul it away.

Q. What kind of materials can you put in your dumpster rentals and how much material?

A. A few of the waste products that are going to mostly take up volume will be things like drywall, carpeting, and scrap wood. Some of the items that are going to have more weight than volume will be things like rock, dirt, and concrete, and items such as these, you’ll only want to fill one quarter the way up cause they do get heavy. Containers that have the same amount of volume will still come in different dimensions. Something to ask rental company about is the heights. You should also ask if you can get a lower container, for it is difficult to lift a heavy container up.
