Renting a Dumpster

The process of renting a roll off container:

The first step in renting a roll off dumpster would be for you to think about the task you are about to do, and how much junk or debris you will have during and after the task. If you are not certain about this, give us a call! We’ll recommend the container sizes that may fit your job the best.


Next use our online ordering service (the contact Cobra Roll-Off form above), fill out a few questions and we’ll have a container out to you right away.


Renting a dumpster that you think is larger than the waste from the job site is probably going to be your best bet, as having to pay for an extra dumpster is not very cost effective.


Think about the actual debris going into the dumpster as certain waste debris is not permitted to be stored in a roll off container. Again, check with us if you’re not sure about this.


Most of our containers have a set time of up to 7 days, so try to plan your job to be completed within the allowed time period.


Pay particularly careful to the amount of weight you’re putting into the container and be sure it’s not over the allowed weight for the container.


If you have any questions please give us a call or use the contact us link above and we’ll do our best to answer your questions.
