What is a roll-off dumpster?
A roll-off dumpster is a large, rectangular waste container typically used for construction and renovation projects. It's called a "roll-off" dumpster because it's delivered to your site on a large truck and "rolled off" onto your property using a hydraulic system.
Roll-off dumpsters come in various sizes, ranging from 10 to 40 cubic yards. The size you'll need will depend on the scope of your project and the amount of waste you expect to generate.
