Projects such as deep cleaning, house renovation, and reconstruction, will naturally expel a lot of wastes. Hence, proper waste management techniques need to be employed when executing them.
A failure to actually employ these techniques can lead to pollution (air, land, and water) in the environment thereby leaving residents exposed to contamination.
When you think of waste management, you almost always think of dumpster bags because they are one of the best ways to properly handle waste materials. The dumpster holds the trash gathered in these sites until a proper garbage disposal service comes along to empty them.
In this article, we discuss waste management, dumpster rental prices, and every other relevant information on the topic.
What is Waste Management?
Waste management is used to describe the proper collection, movement, and disposal of wastes. If wastes are not properly discarded, they could increase the risk of contamination of food, water, and air in the environment.
This is the reason why industrial factories are located far away from residential areas. They expel so many toxic wastes. These could be poisonous if they find their way into the water bodies or atmosphere of the region.
Therefore, waste management is a vital process that must not be neglected when carrying out demolition projects, house renovation, remodeling, garage cleanout, and construction.
So then, what are the importance of waste management?
- It is a process aimed to protect the environment.
- Proper waste management helps prevent environmental pollution.
- It assists in maintaining good health, and general well-being.
- It helps maintain balance in the environment.
As stated earlier, waste management also involves any method used to eliminate waste in a bid to keep the environment clean and germ-free. These methods include recycling, biological reprocessing, incinerating, and landfilling.
So in essence, waste management comprises three processes –collection, movement, and elimination. Dumpsters are the versatile equipment that has a part to play in all three processes as they help collect and store the waste materials before deciding where and when to discard them.
Waste Management Dumpsters
There are different types and sizes of dumpsters for waste management and it is advisable to select dumpsters based on the project you are working on.
For instance, small to medium-sized dumpsters can handle waste materials appropriately for small demolition projects. On the other hand, you will need a much larger one to handle the waste materials for a complete house renovation.
A large sized dumpster such as 30 or 40-yard dumpsters will be more appropriate for such projects.
Besides, many people do not always have to buy dumpsters for continual use. So, it’s better to rent for a one-time project. The section that follows takes a look at the average rental price for different sizes of dumpster bags.
How much does a 10-yard dumpster cost?
A 10-yard dumpster is a one capable of withstanding a volume of up to 10 cubic yards of waste materials. A 10-yard dumpster is an excellent option for small projects such as removing a wall or remodeling a bathroom. It has a dimension of about 14 feet long, 7.5 feet wide and 3.5 feet high. Since many rental companies deal in dumpsters, keep in mind that the rental prices depend largely on several factors such as:
- The type of material you plan to carry
- Weight limit
- Pickup and delivery.
The average rate to rent a 10-yard dumpster falls between $270 and $493.
How much does a 15-yard dumpster cost to rent?
A 15-yard dumpster, from its name, can hold about 15 cubic yards of waste materials. This one is bigger than the 10-yard dumpster, which means it can hold more space. Typically, a 15-yard dumpster should withstand as much as 4000 to 6000 pounds of waste.
As a side note, it is important you inquire from the manufacturer on the weight limit of the dumpster so as to avoid going overboard and damaging it.
15-yard dumpsters are useful for garage cleanouts, basement cleanups, and carpet removal. It has a dimension of 7.5 feet wide, 4.5 feet high and 16 feet long. The average rental price for a 15-yard dumpster falls between $270 and $930, depending on the manufacturer.
How much does it cost to rent a 20-yard dumpster?
A 20-yard dumpster is a step up in size to the previous one mentioned, meaning it can contain more waste materials than the 15-yard dumpsters. Before you go out to rent a dumpster for your waste management, you need to look at the project and try to guesstimate the amount of waste that will be expelled during the project. That way, you don’t end up renting a 20-yard dumpster where a 15-yard dumpster is more appropriate.
Generally, a 20-yard dumpster should hold about 135 13-gallon trash bags. The dumpster’s size and space should handle projects such as wall removal, small bathroom renovation, and kitchen remodeling. It has a dimension of 22 ft. Long, 4.5 ft. High and 7.5 ft. Wide. The average cost of renting a 20-yard dumpster varies between $288 and $630, with other rates inclusive.
How much is a 30-yard dumpster from Waste Management?
A 30-yard dumpster is a good choice for larger projects. The bulkier or more complex the project, the more the space you need for proper waste disposal. You cannot compare the waste materials that will come out of a full renovation to a small garage cleanout.
A 30-yard dumpster can hold up to 10,000 pounds of waste material. It has a dimension of about 22 feet long, 6 feet high, and 7.5 feet wide. The average rental price for a 30-yard dumpster falls between $350 and $1,000. I recommend you contact the manufacturer before use.
How much does it cost to rent a 40-yard dumpster?
A 40-yard dumpster is one of the most used dumpsters because it can handle any project from small to large. It has a dimension of 8 ft. high, 7.5 feet wide and 22 feet long and can contain more than 12000 pounds of waste materials, equivalent to 240 13-gallon trash bags.
A 40-yard dumpster is useful for large projects such as garage demolition, home renovation, home flipping, and large cleanouts. The average rental price for a 40-yard dumpster falls between $440 and $770.
How much does a dumpster cost per month?
For most rental companies, the typical rental period falls between 5-7 days per week. So long term rentals will cost a lot more than the regular rental cost. Some rental companies offer their price rates based on the number of days. For small-sized dumpsters such as 5,10 and 15-yard dumpsters, the rate starts from $25 daily, while large-sized dumpsters will cost about $300.
