Rolloff dumpsters, or roll-offs, sometimes referred to, play a significant role in the waste management industry. A rolloff dumpster is an open-top container that varies in size and length of use. These items are meant for temporary storage and can be used on commercial sites such as grocery stores, construction sites, or individuals at their homes. They allow consumers to quickly unload bulky trash into the storage unit and dispose of it when full without having to make several trips back and forth from a landfill.
What Are Rolloff Dumpsters Used For?
The contents inside will often remain compacted if not mixed with new debris; this allows them to hold more volume than traditional containers. Rolloff dumpsters can come with wheels that enable them to be easily maneuvered to the compacting area, usually a truck. They are used for yard waste or other types of debris. Still, it is advised that residents only fill them over 70 percent capacity to prevent any damages from occurring while being transported. The rolloffs come in various sizes and are meant for daily use under certain circumstances.
The Capacity of Rolloff Dumpsters
The smallest dumpster is ten cubic yards, otherwise known as a 10-yard bin, and can hold up to 720-800 lbs of materials inside. That means an individual will be able to load it with roughly eight wheelbarrows worth of material before having to haul it away themselves or pay for extra services. The next size is the 15-yard rolloff which holds around 1000 lbs of weight. It is also 1&1/2 times larger than the smallest unit, which means it will take approximately 12 wheelbarrows worth of materials to fill. The last dumpster size offered by rolloff companies is 20 yards or a 20-yard bin, and it can hold around 1400 lbs of waste.
