- Business renovations.
Additional charges may be applicable for tonnage, overages, the kind of debris you have, late fees and fuel surcharges. be sure to check on extra charges at the outset of your dumpster rental to avoid nasty surprises when you get the final statement.

If you want to save $100 or more, try downsizing to a 10-yard dumpster, if a dumpster that is 30 yards in size is truly bigger than you need. Some people are confused when choosing the correct size dumpster, so here are three things to consider when making your choice:
- Be as detailed as you can be about the amount and the type of debris you are going to be putting into the dumpster when you talk to the rental company. They are experts and with their experience, they can give you an accurate estimate of the weight.
- You can avoid the common problem of other people throwing their trash into your dumpster and keep rain from getting in there by covering with it a tarpaulin. In both cases, if you do not do this, the total weight of the load will increase. It is especially vital if you chose a 20-yard container over a 30-yard container, because you may have to ultimately pay more if it exceeds the weight limit.
- When in doubt – select the larger size. Inevitably you will save money by the avoidance of overage charges.
