Is it Better to Rent a Dumpster or Haul Junk to the Dump Myself?

Several times a week, we receive calls from people inquiring if they can bring us their household items, construction debris, or regular trash.  We explain we rent roll-off dumpsters but can not accept drop-offs. Many are surprised to learn renting a dumpster for their residential needs is an option. A common question is, “What is the better deal, renting a dumpster or hauling it to the dump themselves?”   The answer to this question is, “It depends”.
We would like to provide you with some useful information to help you decide which option is best for you.
The first thing you need to determine is how much junk you have and how you plan on getting your items to the dump? 
Pick-up truck beds range in size from 1.5 cubic yards to 3 cubic yards.  The standard full size pick up has dimensions of 8’ long X 5.33’ wide X 1.5’ high.  This will hold 2.5 cubic yards of materials.
Next, you will need to decide how many trips it will take to complete your project.  Is it going to take you 1 trip or 10 to get rid of all of your items?  Most companies rent dumpsters ranging in sizes from 10 yards to 40 yards.  The charge for one pick-up load at an Oklahoma City landfill can range from $48 to $65. The average cost of a 10 yard dumpster in the Oklahoma City area is $285.  If your project will take four or more trips to the dump, it might be more economical to rent a roll-off dumpster. 
Other things to consider is the cost of fuel, weight of the items, the value of your time, and the potential hazards to your vehicle at the dump.  Most of the landfills are located on the outskirts of the city, requiring more fuel and time to get there. The landfills are often muddy and have various potential hazards such as nails, broken glass, and other sharp objects which can cause tire punctures.  
Many residential customers like to do their projects on the weekend.  The local landfills close at noon on Saturday and are closed on Sunday leaving you to hold your items until Monday.   
In summary, although renting a roll-off dumpster can initially sound costly, in most cases, it will not only save you money, but also time, stress, and potential damage to your vehicle. 
If you have just a few items and think it will only take one trip to the landfill then choosing to haul your own items may be the best choice for you.  Below are a few of the landfills located in the Oklahoma City Metro area. 
 Please do not hesitate to contact us at (405) 640-4345 with any questions about our dumpsters, or visit us on our Facebook page.

  19. If you have an old car that you want to donate there are a couple good ways to do it. How to donate junk car is a question many people would like to know. One way to donate a junk car is to give it to a junk yard. A junk yard will use the car for parts for people repairing and fixing up their vehicles. Some junk yards send old car parts off to have them turned into new parts. When you donate your car to a junk yard you will be paid for the weight of the vehicle so if you have a heavy vehicle that will mean more money for you. Junk yards recycle used car parts from junk cars. junk removal
