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.

  1. It's good to know that there are a variety of factors that go into pricing a dumpster rental. I can understand how the materials that will be put in the dumpster would require a different method of removal and a different price. I am planning on holding a large event for a company I work for and I'm thinking that a dumpster would be the best way to manage the waste.

  2. I think it is awesome that you have made a post specifically for pricing off of volume of recycling material being used. I think it is great that we get to choose what we want to pay.I know in some communities you have to be charged a standard fee for recycling.

    1. I agree, Paige. There's a variety of projects that you could use a bin or dumpster for, so it's nice to have a variety of sizes so you can get the right bin for your needs. I think getting the right bin can really help make waste removal easier. That way, you can make sure that the waste gets collected and taken to the right place effectively.

  3. Blogs are very good way of exchanging the information and I love to read post and sometime some blogs give me so much of knowledge and this is one kind of those blogs.

  4. Companies that rent out waste bins in Adelaide help ensure that rubbish is never a problem that you need to worry about. That said, you do have to be careful about which service provider to opt. Some of them do tend to do a better job and more reliable than others. Needless to say, you'd certainly want to opt for the latter.SKIP BIN HIRE AREAS SERVICED
