Managing waste efficiently and cost-effectively is vital in various sectors, from large-scale property management and daily business operations to undertaking a home renovation project.
Dumpster rentals from PRO Hauling are an indispensable service when it comes to handling large quantities of waste but can also be a significant expense. Here’s how you can minimize your dumpster rental costs without compromising on service quality.
When it comes to waste management, property managers, businesses, and homeowners often prioritize cost savings. Renting dumpsters is a common solution for efficient waste disposal, whether it’s for a one-time cleanout or ongoing waste management needs. By opting for cost-effective options, these individuals can ensure that all waste is properly handled while keeping expenses to a minimum. This approach not only helps to maintain a clean and organized environment but also contributes to sustainable waste management practices.
Choosing the correct dumpster size can save you money in the long run. This is where the expertise of PRO Hauling comes in handy! We’ll go over your project with you to evaluate the amount of waste your project will generate. This helps you to avoid the common mistake of renting a larger dumpster than necessary, inflating costs for no benefit.
Different types of waste might need to be disposed of separately according to local regulations. Sorting waste materials, separating recyclables, and potentially hazardous items helps to keep costs down. Considering recycling to reduce the volume of waste that needs to be dumped. Donating items in good condition to minimize waste and potentially deduct costs.
Always check local guidelines for sorting and recycling, which could reduce the volume of waste and the size of the dumpster required, leading to savings.
With careful planning, the space within a dumpster can be maximized.
For starters, pack systematically, placing flat items at the bottom. Break down larger items into smaller, more manageable pieces. Stack strategically to make the most of the available volume. Efficient packing reduces the total number of rental cycles needed for your project.
Unexpected fees can quickly increase the cost of dumpster rentals. To avoid them:
Remember, taking a little extra time to plan thoroughly and carefully consider all aspects of your waste management strategy will not only help you save on costs, but also contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly approach. By analyzing your waste streams, identifying opportunities for reduction and recycling, and implementing efficient waste management practices, you can minimize waste generation, reduce environmental impact, and optimize resource utilization. So, invest that extra time now and reap the long-term benefits of effective waste management.

With the start of a new year, businesses as well as homeowners are looking to clear out things that are no longer needed.
If your business is downsizing, or just needs to get rid of stuff you no longer need or use, PRO Hauling is here to help you with commercial dumpster rentals that are as easy as 1-2-3!
The best way to load a dumpster is to make a plan before you start loading it. For starters, plan what goes in first. Break down cardboard boxes so they can be flat on the bottom of the dumpster.
To prevent loose and light items from blowing out of the dumpster, it is advisable to bag smaller items. Items such as Styrofoam, paper documents, and lightweight construction materials should be placed in a large garbage or contractor bag before being disposed of in the dumpster. By bagging smaller items, you not only ensure their containment but also maximize the available space in the dumpster. These bags can go in after the flattened cardboard boxes as they’ll be compacted by items going in next.
Approach loading the dumpster like a game of Tetris. If you put large items like furniture in, place smaller items on and around it to fill empty space.
Our dumpsters are equipped with a maximum fill line, which serves as a safety limit for transportation. It is crucial to cease filling the dumpster either when you reach the line or before. Exceeding the fill line may hinder our ability to haul the load, resulting in additional time and effort required to remove the items above the line. To ensure a smoother process, please inform us promptly if you require an additional dumpster.
If you have any inquiries regarding the disposal of items and whether they can be placed in our dumpsters, please feel free to ask us. It is important to note that PRO Hauling is unable to accept certain items due to safety regulations. These items include:

If you’re new to renting dumpsters, you might have questions about selecting the appropriate size. Our knowledgeable team is here to assist you with that by assessing the scale of your decluttering project. We’ll ensure that you choose the right size to meet your specific needs.
Below, you will find a comprehensive list of our residential dumpster sizes. This will give you a better understanding of the options available and help you determine the most suitable one for your project.
10-yard dumpster – Our smallest available dumpster for rent is the 10-yard size. It stands at 3 feet tall, spans 8 feet wide, and extends 12 feet in length. With an average capacity equal to that of four pickup trucks, it is suitable for cleaning projects concentrated in a single area like a basement or attic.
12-yard dumpster – If you’re looking to clear out cluttered spaces like your basement and attic, consider using this dumpster. Measuring 3 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 12 feet long, it has the capacity to hold approximately the same amount of waste as five pickup trucks.
15-yard dumpster – Does your decluttering project entail handling furniture and other large items? The dumpster measures 4 feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 14 feet in length, providing a capacity equivalent to approximately six pickup trucks.
20-yard and 20-long dumpsters – As the decluttering becomes more involved, the size of the dumpster you need increases. If your kids are outgrowing their furniture and have many unused toys, you might require a larger dumpster. Both dumpsters can accommodate approximately eight pickup trucks’ worth of materials. Your choice should be based on the specific requirements of your project and the available space for the dumpster.
The 20-yard dumpster has dimensions of 5½ feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 14 feet in length. However, for those who prefer a shorter height, there is also a 20-yard dumpster measuring 4 feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 23 feet in length.
30-yard dumpsters – This dumpster size is perfect for significant projects, such as when you’re transitioning to an empty nest and seeking to declutter and organize your home for the next phase of your life. It has dimensions of 6 feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 23 feet in length, providing ample space. With a capacity equivalent to about 12 pickup trucks, it can easily accommodate a substantial amount of waste.
40-yard dumpsters – This dumpster is perfect for major decluttering and purging projects. It’s especially useful when dealing with situations like the passing or relocation of an elderly relative, or when preparing to downsize and sell your home in the future. With dimensions of 7½ feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 23 feet in length, it offers the largest size available for rent. In terms of capacity, it can hold approximately the same amount of waste as 16 pickup trucks.

A 20-yard dumpster’s measurements are 5 ½ feet tall, 8 feet wide, x 14 feet long. To give you a visual idea of what that would look like, this would be the equivalent of filling the beds of eight pickup trucks. A 20-yard dumpster has the capacity to hold around 110-130 trash bags of 33 gallons each, which is equivalent to 20 cubic yards of material. In terms of weight, these dumpsters can typically accommodate approximately 3 tons or 6,000 pounds.

We’ve put together a guide covering information about our commercial dumpster and how they’re used so you can get a better idea of what size is required to meet your needs.
10-yard dumpster: This is the smallest size dumpster available. It’s commonly used for small office cleanouts or for projects involving heavy materials like cement or stone.
12-yard dumpster: Another small dumpster, this size is preferable for heavy materials, along with office cleanouts and small demo projects.
15-yard dumpster: This is the dumpster size that you will likely need if you’re doing a larger scale office cleanout or a moderate amount of debris from a roofing project.
20-yard dumpster: You will probably need this size dumpster for larger office cleanouts or renovations, as well as for average roofing projects.
20 long dumpster: This dumpster has the same amount of space as a 20-yard dumpster, but its lower walls and longer length make it easier to fill.
30-yard dumpster: For larger commercial renovations or cleanouts, you’ll likely need this size dumpster.
40-yard dumpster: This is the largest commercial dumpster available. If you are managing a whole-house emptying, or a large-scale commercial renovation or construction project, you’ll need this dumpster.
While commercial dumpsters are great for removing waste from your business or job site, there are multiple items that cannot be put in a dumpster for safety or regulatory reasons. These include:

Are you new to needing a dumpster? If so, you likely have a lot of questions. Fortunately, PRO Hauling is here to help with our residential and commercial dumpster rentals.
One of those questions may be about where to place your dumpster to maximize safety and efficiency for your project. We’re here to help with some information about dumpsters and the importance of putting them in the proper place.
Your dumpster must be placed in an area accessible to our trucks so it can be safely delivered and placed.
Wherever your dumpster is placed, PRO Hauling places it on top of wood boards to protect the surface underneath it. Once the dumpster is removed, we will clean up after it, so you don’t need to.
For optimal stability, ensure your dumpster is placed in a level and sturdy area. This is why driveways are the preferred option. While placing it directly on the ground is an option, be aware that it may damage the surrounding grass and leave marks when relocated. Concrete or paved surfaces are highly recommended.
When choosing a location for the dumpster, it’s important to consider ease of access. Look for a spot that is conveniently located near nearby doors or the worksite. The dumpster should be out of the way, yet easily and quickly reachable. Additionally, be mindful of any potential obstacles or structures that may impede access to the dumpster. Avoid placing it near fences, trees, buildings, or anything that could slow down or prevent access. Opt for a location that offers a clear and unobstructed path to the dumpster.
For safety and practicality, there are a few spaces where your dumpster should not be.
On the street: On the street may not be a bad place, but you need to do some thinking and planning ahead first.
In most municipalities, bins can be placed on city streets for a maximum of 24 hours. If you need to keep it longer, you’ll need a permit from your town or city hall and that needs to be done before the dumpster is delivered. Ensure that the permit is prominently showcased on the exterior of the bin.
Also, remember to be considerate of your neighbors. Make sure the dumpster won’t block access to driveways or keep neighbors from seeing traffic as they are exiting their driveway. If the dumpster is going to be there for multiple days, it may impact access to street parking, which can cause problems on weekends if anyone is having a party or cookout. Give them a heads-up.
On a slope: You may think, “Oh, it’s not that steep an angle. What’s the big deal?” However, as the dumpster accumulates additional weight from the items you’re disposing of, the likelihood of it sliding or gliding down a slope grows. It is crucial to be mindful of this, especially in winter, early spring, or late fall when the risk of frost and freezing exists. That can make a sloped driveway or yard extra slippery and turn your dumpster into a dangerous projectile.
On soft or sandy ground: While the dumpster may look fine when you place it, as you start to fill it, the combined weight of the waste and the dumpster will cause it to sink down into the ground. This makes it difficult to remove the dumpster.

Something else that makes renting a dumpster easy is knowing how to put it to good use for maximum efficiency. We’ve put together five tips to help you do that.
If you have questions about what you’re throwing out and whether you can put it in one of our dumpsters, ask us. Due to safety regulations, there are several things that PRO Hauling cannot accept, such as:
A little work before you start loading, or even before the dumpster arrives, can make the project go faster and easier for you.
Do you have cardboard boxes? Break them down. They’re easier to carry that way and take up less room in the dumpster.
Break down furniture for easier loading and so it’s more compact. For example, a bed can be broken down, so the headboard and footboard lie flat with the side rails on top of them.
Another way to prepare is by knowing what should go in first. Lighter items such as flattened boxes, pillows, and furniture pieces should go in first. The heavier items on top will compact them so they take up less room.
Bag light items such as papers, Styrofoam, and fabrics so they don’t blow away. Put them on the bottom of the dumpster as well so they can be compacted by the heavier items on top.
Our dumpsters have a door that swings open. It may seem like more fun to just toss stuff over the side into the dumpster, but using the door makes the job faster, easier, and safer.
Start at the back of the dumpster and work your way back towards the door. This also allows you to distribute the load more evenly for safe hauling.
Our dumpsters have a maximum fill line. That line indicates the limit for safe hauling. Stop when or before you reach it. If the load goes past the fill line, we may not be able to haul it. You’ll lose time removing the items above the fill line. It’s easier and more efficient to let us know that you need another dumpster.
