How much does it cost to rent a dumpster in Boulder County?

The first question many people ask when they call us here at Bin There Dump That is, how much does a bin cost and why don’t you post prices on your website?  Since there are a number of factors that go into pricing a dumpster, we thought it would be a good idea to explain our thought process on this subject.  For starters, there are 4 sizes of bins to choose from: 4, 10, 14 & 20 cubic yard sizes are available.  The types of materials being put in the dumpster determine the price as well, since very heavy materials such as dirt, concrete, masonry and asphalt shingles have to be priced differently, and only smaller bins can be supplied for these materials, due to truck weight restrictions.  Distance to the job site also plays into pricing.  Addresses in the foothills and in outlying areas require us to travel more miles (fuel) and pay for the extra driver time – multiplied by two trips (delivery and pick-up) so we have to charge accordingly. Length of rental time is also a factor – we can sometimes leave the bin for more than 7 days during off-peak months, but may need to charge something for that extra rental time.

But just to give some starting prices, a 4 cubic yard bin for household waste/construction materials in our immediate delivery area (Boulder County along the Front Range) rents for $235.00, all inclusive, for up to 7 days.  The same bin (4 yard) for concrete/dirt/rock/brick/mortar type materials rents for $220.00 per load, all inclusive, for up to 7 days.  These prices are posted as of 2/2015.
