Roll Off Containers Versus Dumpsters

by | Feb 28, 2013 | Waste Management

Many people have no idea what the difference is between roll off containers and dumpsters. In this article we will explain in detail exactly what the difference between these two is. Dumpsters are typically located at the back of restaurants, schools or even at public parks and rest areas. Dumpsters are loaded up with garbage that is carried off by local trash trucks. Sometimes dumpsters are used to recycle bottles or glass or paper. Cranes are typically used to raise the dumpsters off the ground so that their contents can be dumped into local trash trucks and carried away to the local landfill. Most of the time these dumpsters are labeled in a way that prohibits anyone that does not work at the business in which they are located or does not attend the school in which they are located from using them. This keeps folks from taking their household trash to these dumpsters and depositing it there. This type of action is illegal and if you are caught doing so, you will be in quite a bit of trouble.

Sometimes dumpsters will be used at construction sites. These types of dumpsters are typically quite a bit larger than those you will find behind restaurants or in parks. These dumpsters are able to handle very large loads of waste materials. They can typically take on about 40 yards worth of waste material.

Roll off containers are open on top and have wheels on their bottom end. These containers are quite a bit smaller than dumpsters and can be loaded up and carried on the back of a trash removal truck. These types of waste containers are used a lot at construction sites because they can be easily filled and then carried away with little to no hassle. Typically you rent a roll off container for a certain period of time and as you fill the container up with waste, the company truck will come and take the unit and dispose of the waste and then return the container to you to repeat the process.

As you can see, both roll off containers and dumpsters alike are helping to make our world a more beautiful place in which to live. They can both help to make jobs much easier than they would have been in the past. Decades ago, folks had to take their trash themselves to the dump or landfill and this took away from their business because they had to spend quality work time travelling the roads to the dump.
