What Size Dumpster ?


Without plywood and only one layer, probably between a 5 yarder and a 10 yarder.

Some dumpster companies will only ship out a 20 yarder for roofing debris though.

The roofer that gave me the estimate insists a 20 yard be used. Says it's better for his guys.

To be honest with you, we only use our own dump truck, but on the few occasions when it is in for maintenance, we only order 20 yarders, as they can be moved to the next location for a small fee if the weight limit did not get met.

Dumpster prices are all over the board, depending where in the country you are located and how many disposal mlocations are near by, if they have not already been closed.

I always figure a minimum fee of $ 225.00 for any roof removal hauling, which is to cover the driving time and the overhead to cover for the expense of maintenance and repairs. That is the rare circumstance where we do not need to charge significantly more than that, just to cover our costs for disposal though.

I got a 20 yard dumpster. I ripped up 12 sheets of plywood, 24 squares with felt, and a couple of small trees. It was about 3/4 full.

What Size Dumpster ?


Guys that explains a lot. The roofer socks me $476.00 for a 20 yard dumpster. Then goes to other jobs on my dime. What a racket. No wonder when I did a little price exploration the dumpster guy told me just 10 yard would be more than enough for 15 sq of 3 tab. When I told him the roofer insisted on 20 yard he said that he was in the business for a very long time and it sounded like the roofer was trying to make some extra dough.

I HAVE A LOT TO LEARN!!! Thank you both for leveling with me.

In my area, they charge a minimum of $ 425.00 for a 20 yard dumpster.

I prefer my own dump truck for the convenience factor.

Most roof jobs always have a 20 yarder delivered to the job site. What if some additional materials need to be torn off and disposed of, such as delaminated plywood decking?

Then they would have to order a 2nd small but expensive 10 yarder to make sure they get all of your debris hauled away.

just paid $275.00 for 20yd from ROLL OFF INC in Cleveland Ohio area.

Didn't use it for shingles, but I ran out of space and instead of spending $50 or so more for the next size, now I'll have to pay full price again

oversize it...

elementx440 Ummm, Sounds like sage council. Here in Ct. I think the prices are higher if roofing material is what is being placed in the dumpster. I'll probably go with a 10 yard.

8 yard dumpster coming the 22nd. $330, ouch! Best rate I could find. To do any better I'd have to get rid of shingles in my 1/2 ton. $30.00 per 4sq x 4 trips. Heck with that!

In addition to the actual dumpster cost,
your contractor is probably figuring in the time needed to meet the dumpster,
lay down some plywood to protect your property, and be there for the removal and possibly small amount of clean up after they leave.

He is also taking an allowance for the responsibility for any damages incurred while moving the dumpster.
