Why Selecting the Correct Roll Off Dumpster Size Matters

Choosing the right container size is important to make sure you don’t overload your dumpster or exceed the weight limit—both of which can result in additional fees. In most cities, dumpsters weighing more than 10 tons can’t be legally hauled on the road, so you may need to schedule empty-and-return service or rent multiple containers depending on how big your job is. If you’re on the fence about which roll off box best suits your project, consider going up a size.
