My local one closed a couple years ago. The equipment went very cheaply.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Got the new high efficiency airless tips and a new gun.

And some new tile spacer clamps. Going to give them a shot and see how they work.

As well as a bissell crosswave wet floor cleaner. That thing was awesome spot removal last night. Now I'm going to see if it will clean thinset haze off the new tiles.

No still the construction business. Tired of spending more than 50k on trash and not getting what I need when I need it. Be a nice chunk of change staying in the company this way too

So how much does a dumpster go for? What is your plan for moving and emptying them? Do you have a roll off truck?

Just for reference how big of a company are you or how many jobs you got going at once? Just curious one how much 6 dumpsters will support?

That trailer is what you haul the dumpsters on one at a time.

We have 3/4 and 1 ton trucks so yes we can haul them.

Moving and emptying will happen with truck and trailer. My old boss had his own dumpsters as well and used a 3/4 diesel for years to haul them. I imagine the dually will pull these often, but our 3/4s have never had trouble with 20.yard dump trailers when not full.of concrete or something.

We have had 14 to 20 yard dump trailers these are much the same.

Dump trash in San Saba. 5 of our vehicles and 5 drivers (including the us the owners ) Can pull them.

Last two years 5-8 jobs at a time.

Like I said spent over 50k in trash last year.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Didn't even know they made roll off trailers. Just did some googling and they're pretty neat.

So what made you go with this setup over buying a handful of dump trailers? I'm guessing one roll off trailer and 6 dumpsters is more cost effective?

How much you looking to save a year by not paying the dumpster rental fees and fee to dump/deliver? Seems like a good idea that even smaller business' could benefit from depending on how one roll off trailer and 1 or 2 dumpsters compares to a dump trailer.

Have you looked into any of the EPA/DNR stuff for running your own garbage service now? Any special licenses or permits needed? I'd guess they would be pretty strict on something like that. So what happens if someone throws some prohibited crap in your dumpster and they find it when you dump? I know most sites around here with a dumpster aren't secured and people love to dump whatever they can throw in them.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


There is no special liscences in Texas for hauling your own garbage, most contractors have at least one dump trailer. This is no different except you can drop it off and leave it. Harder to steal and I can leave it overnight in municipalities you can't leave a trailer

TCEQ has no special certs either for running your own debris to the dump either. I would never lease to anyone else, I'm not a trash company. I'm sure there are special requirements if you have a trash company

Same thing would happen if I put something illegal in a dump trailer - if someone sees it at the dump you have to take it with you

This is not a dumpster service. This is the same as any other contractor with dump trailers.

Makes sense I didn't really think about it like that, just saw the trailer full of dumpsters and "getting more tomorrow". LOL
