If you've got a mess that needs hauling away, chances are you've peeked into the local directory, known as Google, to see if there are any companies that will haul it off for you. Chances are you’ve seen the average "We haul away your junk" service, and found them to be expensive, and found them to be expensive and in some cases a little bit seedy. The other option you'll find is a roll away dumpster service. While it seems simple, they aren't all the same. So here are a few things you should look for in a dumpster company.


Cleanliness is key when renting a dumpster. The absolute last thing you want is a giant smelly bin of someone else's garbage juice hanging around your front yard for a day or two. This goes for unsightly rust as well. Your ideal dumpster will be washed after every use and repainted as needed.


A mess doesn't politely remove itself or stay hidden just because the dumpster guy didn't show up. Google reviews are your friend. Find a company that’s reliable, shows up on time and most importantly, removes the dumpster quickly when you call.

Ease of use

You might not realize it yet, but tossing heavy items over high walls can be tiring, especially when you have to do it enough times to fill up, say, a dumpster. If this is a problem for you, you'll want to go with a company that offers refuse containers with doors.

Research is the best tool you have to ensure you get the smoothest possible experience when renting a dumpster, so consult your local Google results and get going!
