Roll Off vs. Front Load Dumpsters: Understanding the Difference
Having a dumpster on site for a construction project or a big clean-out for residential use makes getting rid of debris easier and safer. The size of your project and how much you’re looking to get rid of will determine the type and size of dumpster you’ll need.
At Wall Recycling, we offer roll off dumpsters and front load dumpsters in different sizes. As you think about the scope of your project, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with both types so that you can choose the right one.
What is a Roll Off Dumpster?
A roll off dumpster opens at the top and is designed to hold large items. These types of dumpsters are heavy and rectangular. They are loaded onto and off a commercial truck where they are taken away to be emptied. Once you’re done with the project, your dumpster is removed from your property.
Where are Roll Off Dumpsters Most Useful?
Roll off dumpsters are most useful for construction projects, cleanouts, and demolition. They are useful because they can be hauled away when the project is complete. When used for a construction project, a roll off dumpster can haul away debris like shingles, brick, cabinets, and more.
Sizes of Roll Off Dumpsters
At Wall Recycling, choose a roll off dumpster in one of five different sizes:
- 10 yard-Best for small & mid-sized projects
- 15 yard-Best for mid-sized projects with more debris
- 20 yard-Ideal for landscaping, construction, and small building remodels
- 30 yard-Good for landscaping and large construction projects
- 40 yard-Good for industrial projects
If you’re unsure what size dumpster is best for your project, the team at Wall Recycling can help.
What is a Front Load Dumpster?
Unlike a roll off dumpster, a front load dumpster stays on-site for long-term waste disposal. It is emptied weekly to suit your schedule. It is placed on your property in a safe and accessible location.
Where to Use a Front Load Dumpster
A front load dumpster is best suited for a variety of businesses and organizations like hotels, schools, restaurants, medical clinics, stores, salons, and more.
Sizes of Front Load Dumpsters
Like roll off dumpsters, front load dumpsters also come in different sizes to suit your needs.
At Wall Recycling there are three sizes to choose from:
- 4-yard: Ideal for 100-employee businesses
- 6-yard: Good for mid-sized businesses of about 250 employees
- 8-yard: Best for large organizations that produce a great deal of waste
Once you assess your business or organization’s needs, let Wall Recycling schedule a convenient time and place to drop off your front load dumpster. You can also set up a schedule for regular trash pick-up. When you have a front load dumpster permanently on-site, you don’t have to worry about throwing away large amounts of trash in your regular garbage pickup. Front load dumpsters are a convenient and easy way to get rid of garbage regularly.
