Types of Dumpsters & Dumpster Services

| Dumpsters | October 2, 2012

The world of dumpster services is usually divided up into two different categories, there is temporary dumpster services and then there is permanent dumpster services. The types of containers can usually be narrowed down to open top or compactors, and large or small. Whichever you may need, you are going to want to look at the differences between the services and dumpsters.

Temporary Dumpster Service

This type of service is going to be called upon when someone needs a container that will be dropped off for a period of time, and then collected once the container has been filled with the waste that needs to be disposed. They come in cubic yard sizes, which range from 10 to 40 yards. The sizes may differ though depending on the area of the country that you live in. The typical name for this type of service is large container service. It is often used by those that have larger renovations or just have a large amount of waste that they need to get rid of all at one time.

These types of rentals can last just a day or even up to a year. It just really depends on the scope and size of the project at hand. There are professional construction companies that easily use them for months at a time. Once in a while you might see smaller sized dumpsters like you do at businesses, but that doesn’t happen very often. Simply because the weight that the normal waste of jobs of this size accumulate is far too heavy for a dumpster that size.

Temporary Dumpster Renting

One consideration that a lot of people seem to forget is you are going to want a different type of dumpster for different types of waste. The average dumpster that you see at most businesses and complex’s is the one that is meant for general waste or trash. But, there are dumpsters that can be meant for only green waste, which is your average yard waste. There is also demolition and construction waste dumpsters, and even recyclable dumpsters that are just simply meant to hold cardboard and other objects that can be recycled.

Permanent Rentals of Dumpsters

There are large dumpsters that are rented permanently, but the majority of them are going to be smaller containers or compactors. The larger containers that are rented permanently are those that you see behind malls or big corporations. Where as the smaller ones are the ones that you see when you go to just about any business. Basically the idea is that you can have these dumpsters permanently in your area while they get picked up by a truck every week or so. Compacted rentals are enclosed and will allow for the trash to be crushed and compacted, allowing the user to put more trash in the rental before it is emptied. The open top rentals are those that allow for the users to throw trash in over the top of the dumpster usually.
