And we have many companies to choose from

I used to work for a guide rail and fencing company. The landfill contracted us to put up 30' tall privacy fence around the trash pile so the neighbors didn't have to look at it. You would no BELIEVE the parade of trucks coming into the dump through the course of a day. Mostly coming down from NY because PA trash taxes are a bargain compared to any state that touches us!!

2 weeks max - 24hr. notice - cash only

Local drop off at waste manag. is $65.00 ton with 20 or 30 dollar min i think
Was this comparable to the others? when i order containers i usually get no weight limit. . . but the price is usually more.
3 tons for a 20 yd seems low

Yes it does...this guy is a small hauler- not sure if this matters - but the other pricing was higher for all sizes, although i could pay by check

At least where I live, if you use the citizen drop off, you have to show your tax bill to prove you are a property owner in the County.

Dave - Cook & Young Industries is who I use almost exclusively.

I've had dumpsters as long as 6 months, with no extra charge. They take checks, CC, etc.

Unless I have it wrong, my understanding is that containers are exchanged between companies all of the time.. similarly to how you can exchange propane tanks at most stores that sell them regardless of where you bought it.

My office neighbor is always changing his trash company and he explained to me that he shops around for the best "pull" price to have the thing emptied.. and essentially when they drop the new container, they take the full one, dump it, and then repaint it with their name.

Re: Dumpsters


We don't pay by the ton. Just the size of the dumpster. You can only put concrete in a 10 yard around here. And shingles only up to a 20 yd.

10-$150
20-$265
30-$325
40-$465

They all claim to charge a fee every day after one week, but we have never been billed for it. We do a considerable amount of dumpster business.

WM would probably be the most expensive option by far around here.

Re: Dumpsters


I guess my off the cuff estimate of 3k for a dumpster on a remodel this morning was a little off. Oops. I had to get to work!

Re: Dumpsters


3 yard dumpster picked up every other week is 40 per month ...worst part about it is my driveway is super long and when the frost lets lose the truck destroys my drive way

they will take any thing on the ground too...

Re: Dumpsters


A ten yard dumpster should be sufficiant. All flooring, vanity, tub, and surround should fit without any problems. Remember to layer your heaviest rubble in the bottom! Good luck!

Re: Dumpsters


I use a small local guy that I found a few years ago.

$90.00/10 yard can
$125.00/20 yard can
$175.00/30 yard can

$75.00/ton

I used to use a company called Benjer, but they started trying to screw me with ridiculous overages, and no matter how much business I gave them, they never gave me a break. When they wanted almost $500 for a 30 yard dumpster I said "That's it".

ABC Dumpsters. It's a small operation, but so are we.

I've heard from two different past bosses that HAI was one to stay away from.

Re: Dumpsters


The landfill where I live has really changed in the past year. Long gone are the days of pull up and dump. Now it's pull up and sort, while the powers that be look over your shoulder.

I think ca restrictions are really harsh but they tend to set the trend for the rest of the country :
