If you are about to embark on a DIY landscaping project of your own, you might want to consider renting a dumpster to have on your property to help make things go a little smoother. Before you finally have your dream yard, there can be much disruption that takes place throughout your property. Therefore, any help that you can receive can do wonders. A dumpster can prove very beneficial as you take on a landscaping project as you can expect more waste than anticipated, you will not need to make multiple trips to the landfill, and you can ensure the debris is stored safely.

What is considered landscaping debris?

Landscaping debris comprises organic waste resulting from outdoor projects. Leaves, dead plants, branches, shrubs, sticks, and grass clippings are all considered yard waste. Yard waste dumpsters can handle all the common types of yard debris that may crop up during routine yard maintenance or while removing landscape debris, including whole or chipped shrubs; bagged or loose grass leaves; whole, trimmed, or chipped small branches; small logs under 4 inches in diameter; stumps and uncontaminated dirt.

Simplify the job with a dumpster rental

Rental dumpsters can be an asset to any landscaping job. These bins can safely take care of any messes, no matter the scale of the project. Disposing of landscaping debris and garden waste may be the most challenging part of your job. If you need to get the waste out of the way fast without paying extra and you do not have the time to make trips to the dump every day, renting a dumpster can make yard debris cleanup easy, fast, and affordable. Here are a few ways you can benefit from using a dumpster rental that will help simplify the job:

  • Time-saving: Get rid of every bush and branch without leaving the job site.
  • Convenient placement: Toss debris inside so that it never piles up on the lawn.
  • Dedicated service: Call your representative directly whenever you need a pickup or a new bin.

What size dumpster will I need?

To best prepare for renting a disposal bin, you will want to walk around your yard and get a sense of what needs to be tossed out. That way, you will know what dumpster size will be adequate for your needs. A general rule of thumb is that 4-yard and 6-yard bins are appropriate for landscaping projects. If you have a 9-yard bin full of soil, then a truck will not lift one that large. Choose the right size dumpster no matter what job you are working on.

  • 10-yard dumpster: ideal for dirt removal, regular maintenance, and redesign of one flower bed.
  • 20-yard dumpster: ideal for removing multiple trees and shrubs, cleaning up a large yard, and redesigning multiple flower beds.
  • 30-yard dumpster: ideal for sod removal, complete landscape redesign, and clearing brush from a large area.
  • 40-yard dumpster: ideal for storm debris cleanup, yard debris removal in large areas, and commercial landscaping.

What will it cost?

The average cost of a roll-off dumpster rental nationwide is $289-$645. Several factors that affect pricing include the location (some prices are regulated by local ordinances), weight allowance, container size, and debris type. When it comes to landscape debris removal, renting a dumpster can help save time and money vs. making multiple trips to a local dump. Here is a quick breakdown of the average cost range of a rental as per yard debris dumpster size:
