Dumpster FAQs

  • What does “roll-off” dumpster mean?

    Roll-off dumpsters refer to waste receptacles that are delivered to residential and commercial sites to be used for temporary waste collection. Available in a variety of sizes, roll-off dumpsters can be used for anything from cleanouts of your home’s basement or attic and light construction debris to larger commercial cleanout and construction projects. Roll-off dumpsters are then picked up when they are full so homeowners and commercial business owners don’t have to deal with getting rid of the trash.

    Saraceno Disposal offers roll-off dumpsters in four sizes:

    • 10 Cubic Yards
    • 20 Cubic Yards
    • 30 Cubic Yards

  • How do I know what size dumpster I need?

    The size of the dumpster you need will depends on the type of project you need it for. Give us a call to discuss your needs in more detail and we can recommend a dumpster and free estimate for you but here are some general guidelines to consider when deciding on a dumpster rental size.

    • 10-yard dumpsters: residential kitchen or bath remodels, basement and attic cleanouts of your home
    • 20-yard dumpsters: larger basement and attic clean outs
    • 30-yard dumpsters: New home construction, larger demolition projects, and siding jobs on medium sized houses
    • 40-yard dumpsters: New home construction and commercial cleanouts
  • Can I move the dumpster?

    No. Once the dumpster until has been delivered to your site, it will stay where it was directed to be placed when the order was made. You should fill the unit then call Saraceno Disposal for retrieval. You can also make arrangements for an additional dumpster at another location as well.

  • Is there a limit to how much can go in a dumpster?

    You can fill the dumpster up to the top. Charges are determined by the weight of the dumpster when we pick it up. Dumpsters cannot be filled above the top of the dumpster. Call for more details on pricing.

  • Can the dumpster damage my property?

    Yes. Dumpsters are massive and can damage your property based on the sheer weight. While our drivers are very experienced and will take extra steps on both delivery and retrieval, it is possible that concrete and asphalt may experience depressions, scratches, or other cosmetic damage, depending on the solid under-layer. Dirt and lawns retain depressions for some time, and can experience dead spots on occasion. It is best to place the dumpster where the damage will be minimized.

  • Is there anything I can’t put in a dumpster?

    While our dumpsters are perfect for things like demolition materials, junk removal, brush, stumps, and masonry materials, there are items that cannot be dumped. The list of prohibited materials includes:

    • Batteries

    • Tires (Special Arrangements Needed)
  • How long is the dumpster rental for?
