There are times when you need to dispose of large or bulky items from your household or job site. You cannot count on your regular bins for these situations. This is why alternative options are available, such as roll-off containers. A roll-off container is useful for temporary waste disposal, it can be easily rolled away when it’s not needed anymore.
What Roll-Off Containers Are Used For
Roll-off containers have wheels at the bottom for easy transportation. This way, they can be easily rolled or dragged on the ground when needed. Moreover, roll-off containers are loaded on specially designed trucks used for rental services.
Roll-off containers are commonly used for large-scale waste disposal and clearing of home projects and construction sites. The specific types of trash may include home improvement items, construction materials, and similar big projects. They are also often used for clearing out damaged areas with lots of disposable items.
Different Types of Dumpster Containers
The word dumpster and container are synonymous. You can use these words interchangeably and they will mean the same thing. However, you may find different size dumpsters that are used for different applications.
A hopper box container is usually 4-8 yards and sit permanently on the side of a commercial building. They are primarily used as a large trash bin for businesses to empty their waste. A dump truck will empty the trash container on a regular basis so businesses can continue to use it. The container seldom leaves its location.
A roll-off container is usually 12-20 yards and are temporarily at residential or construction sites for a particular job. They are much longer containers that are also used for trash and waste, and they are removed when a job is complete. These types of containers can also be switched out with empty containers if the bins ever get full — this is called a switch-out.
Roll-off containers are loaded onto trucks using either a hook lift or cable hoist. At Gregory Roll-Off Containers, we use hook lift designed containers because they are easier and safer to maneuver into tight spaces at your location. We also put wood boards under the rollers to protect the surface that the container will temporarily reside on.
What to Put Inside a Roll-Off Container
A roll-off container is typically rented or leased out by private waste removal companies, which means that these are subject to certain rules. What’s certain is that anyone can dispose of large quantities of construction materials and yard waste in these containers. However, if you see a roll-off container on the street and attempt to throw your garbage in it, you might get fined or penalized by the authorities or renter of the container. Moreover, renting a roll-off container does not give you the license to put whatever you want in it.
The rules are pretty straightforward for roll-out containers. First, you cannot put any object that might harm any person or animal trying to access the dumpsters. Next is that you must take note of the waste disposal laws in your city or state. Finally, leaving toxins, contaminants, and explosives inside the roll-off containers is a bad idea.
Remember that once your roll-off container is full, you can switch it out with a new one. This illustrates the temporary nature and usage of roll-off containers in the household and even in commercial industries. It is the most convenient means of large-scale waste disposal.
