Business Trash, Garbage and Recycling Services FAQ

What size container is right for my business?

  • Size matters when it comes to garbage. Waste Management has many bin, dumpster and container options available to handle all your waste and recycling needs. We make it easy to have your facilities serviced so you can focus on running your business.
  • Front-load containers, bins and dumpsters are most often used for non-residential, business or commercial waste collection. You can arrange for one or more 2-,4-, 6- or 8-cubic-yard containers. 
  • Front-load containers are good for office buildings, manufacturing plants and offices, distribution centers, apartments, multi-family properties and residential buildings, hotels, schools and universities, shopping centers, grocery stores, convenience stores, service stations, auto body shops, nail salons, hair and grooming salons, restaurants, lunch counters, delis, healthcare offices, urgent care locations, hospitals, health testing facilities and strip malls.

What is the difference between a front-load container and a rear-load container?

  • Front-load dumpsters and rear-load dumpsters typically have the same capacity for trash and refuse. The key difference is the way the truck picks up and empties the dumpster. With a front-loading dumpster, there are metal slots on both sides of the dumpster where the truck forks insert, and the container is lifted and emptied over the top of the truck cab. 
  • With rear-load dumpsters, the truck connects directly to the face of the dumpster, usually by way of a cable. This means rear-load dumpsters don’t have slots on the sides, making them ideal for tighter spaces.

What is the difference between a slanted-top bin or a flat-top bin?

  • Slanted-top bins are better suited for very cold environments. Melting snow and ice will drain off the slanted tops. Both types of bin have tops made of hard plastic.

Where will my business trash bins be located?

  • Waste Management will consult with you to identify a location(s) that is easily accessible for our trucks and drivers and safe for your customers and employees. 

How often is business trash picked up?

  • Business trash pickup is once per week, with additional days available by request. We make it easy to up-size your container or arrange for additional pickups based on the seasonality and peaks of your business. 

Do you offer 24/7 support and paperless billing?

  • Waste Management recognizes that our business customers have many different priorities and that their time is valuable. We offer 24/7 online support through the My WM portal and online chat features. We send digital alerts and notifications and offer AutoPay and Paperless Billing. The My WM account portal allows you to track and manage your business account’s records online. Phone support is also available during regular business hours, at 855-852-7110Opens in a new tab..

What is a roll-off container or roll-off dumpster?

  • Roll-off dumpsters — so named because they have wheels and are unloaded from the back of a roll-off truck — are ideal for manufacturers, large retailers, commercial or residential renovations, construction and demolition firms, land, yard or tree clearing trimming and removal, festivals and large events, and agricultural harvests. Many different sizes of roll-off dumpsters are available from Waste Management. The most-popular sizes are 20-, 30-, and 40-cubic-yards of capacity. 
  • Roll-off dumpsters and bins can be placed in safe locations. Waste Management trucks will need to be able to access the dumpster in order to remove it. Once emptied, it can be replaced in its original or other designated location. Some types of waste, especially hazardous, are not allowed in roll-off dumpsters and/or require an additional fee. Contact us at 855-852-7110Opens in a new tab. to order your roll-off dumpster or to ask about what materials can and cannot be placed in a roll-off container.

What is a compactor?

  • A compactor is an electrically powered machine that reduces the size of waste material by pressing on it with significant force (compaction), thereby greatly reducing space needed for storage. Waste Management compactors are fully enclosed and range in size from 2 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards. The mechanical blade within the container compacts the loaded-in waste materials. Compactors are ideal for businesses that generate large amounts of waste or use significant quantities of recyclable materials.
  • Up-front costs for compactors are typically larger than that of roll-off dumpsters. However, over time, compactors yield savings by reducing trash pickup counts or recycling sell-offs. Compactors are often used by hospitals, distribution centers, manufacturing companies, industrial plants and recycling centers. Because of the internal blade, employee training is strongly recommended prior to installing a compactor. Ask Waste Management for training ideas and solutions, if needed. 

What are the rules for business or commercial recycling?

  • Waste Management offers commercial, business and industrial recycling services, and there is no “one size fits all” approach. We invite you to contact our customer service team at 855-852-7110Opens in a new tab. to identify how our recycling services can meet your specific business ecology and needs. 
  • Our most common recycling services include weekly pickup of commonly recycled items, such as cardboard, paper and everyday metals or plastics. In select areas and markets, we offer heavy duty paper, steel, aluminum, fiber and plastics recycling. Typically, these items are collected through roll-off dumpsters, frontload containers or compactors. These specialized recycling offerings can be packaged with your commercial waste, trash or garbage service at a great value.

How is industrial waste managed?

  • We recognize that some of our customers may generate special waste. You can trust that Waste Management handles such material in an environmentally sound manner. Our capacity, industry experience and trade leadership allow us to identify the type of waste and customize removal, allowing for heightened safety measures and specialized disposal processes. 
  • We ensure environmental compliance and provide “cradle to grave” compliance tracking. Contact us at 855-852-7110Opens in a new tab. to partner with an experienced disposal company who can expertly track, report and manage your special waste. Ask us about our Subtitle D Class 1 landfills with best-in-class liners, certified scaling systems and leachate collection.

Temporary Roll-Off Dumpster FAQs

What is a roll-off dumpster?

  • A roll-off dumpster is a heavy-duty trash container used for big cleanup projects. This large, sturdy trash container is rectangular in shape and made of welded steel with an open top for easy, on-location loading of junk, trash and debris. Its large capacity makes it ideal for a cleanup, remodel, renovation or demolition. The industry name for these garbage containers is “roll off dumpster” because they are delivered by a truck that rolls the dumpster off the back of the truck.

Why would I rent a dumpster?

  • A roll-off dumpster is the workhorse of any home or business construction or remodeling project. It’s the perfect way to centrally and safely collect garbage and debris. The size and depth of a roll-off dumpster makes it perfect for large cleanups, junk and trash removal, managing remodeling, demolition and construction debris, roofing and driveway replacements, yard cleanups, and renovations after a hurricane, fire or flood.
  • There are many uses for a roll-off dumpster.
  • Spruce Up Property to Sell
  • Declutter for a spacious look
  • Throw out junk and broken items
  • Pare down to just what you plan to pack
  • Enhance Curb Appeal
  • Tear out overgrown landscaping
  • Clear out yard debris and clutter
  • Haul off plant waste in one load
  • Spring Cleaning
  • Clear out attics (those boxes of old papers are fire hazards)
  • Clear out basements (trade junk for more space)
  • Reclaim your garage (toss clutter and park in a clean garage)
  • Large Repairs or Remodels
  • At homes or for commercial or business locations
  • Carpet and flooring tear-outs
  • Re-roofing
  • Demolitions and rebuilds after a disaster event
  • DIY Projects
  • Kitchen updates
  • Bath remodeling
  • Door and window replacements
  • Contract Jobs
  • Detailed remodeling
  • Major renovations
  • New construction
  • Tear-downs and rebuilds

What are my options when renting a dumpster?

  • Dumpster Size
  • The first choice to make when renting a dumpster is what size you need. Dumpsters are sized based on how many cubic yards of waste they hold.
  • 10 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 12 feet long x 3 ½ feet high. It holds 10 cubic yards of waste.
  • 20 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 22 feet long x 4 feet high. It holds 20 cubic yards of waste.
  • 30 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 22 feet long x 6 feet high. It holds 30 cubic yards of waste.
  • 40 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 22 feet long x 8 feet high. It holds 40 cubic yards of waste.
  • *A cubic yard is 3 feet wide x 3 feet long x 3 feet wide. Weight will vary for a cubic yard. For example, a cubic yard of popcorn will weigh significantly less than a cubic yard of housing shingles.
  • Extra Options
  • Wheels are a popular rental choice. They are ideal if your trash container needs to move between or around job sites.
  • Locking devices can be part of your rental, too. They make sense when child safety or animal control is a concern. They also deter people who may be tempted to add their trash to your dumpster.
  • A roll-off dumpster can also be equipped with a rear swing door. This feature lets workers carry heavy items through the rear door at ground level, rather than having to lift that object high enough to toss it into the dumpster’s open top.

How much does it cost to rent a dumpster?

  1. Rental rates vary across the country, but all rates are dependent on:Type of debris
  2. Dumpster size for the job
  3. Length of rental
  4. Extra options ordered
  • In weighing your purchase decision for a dumpster rental, consider efficiency and effectiveness. Workers can be much more efficient on a roofing project or driveway replacement at your home or business with access to a centrally located, deep-capacity dumpster to safely contain shingles, sharp and broken debris, garbage, clutter and junk. 
  • WM wants you to be a well-informed customer. This is critical to making good rental decisions.
  • Use these 5 easy steps to estimate your dumpster rental cost.
  1. Know the contents of the load to collect and haul away. This helps with estimating volume and weight. Here’s an example: Storm damage covered your property with fallen limbs. You rent a 10 Yard dumpster for one week. When the job is done, the volume of debris almost fills the 10 Yard. The weight of debris you take to the landfill is under 3 tons. This job is on budget: under the limits for weight and volume.
  2. Choose the right size dumpster. Visit our Support Center to speak with one of our friendly team members if you have questions about the right size for your rental.
  3. Estimate how long you plan to have your dumpster on site. Daily, weekly and monthly rentals are available at a wide range of prices from various rental companies. We strive to work with your project’s needs, even if they change as your job unfolds. Shop around for what you need. And watch out for hidden fees that can drive up a rental that looks like a bargain!
  4. Select options of wheels, locks, plastic liners, rear entry doors and other add-ons that may be helpful for your project.
  5. Ask about permitting that may be required in your area. City or county permitting costs will not be included in the cost of your dumpster rental, in most cases.
  • A word of caution!
  • Some rental companies charge extra fees that can add up fast. 
  • Delivery Fee: Charged for dumpster delivery to the site.
  • Removal Fee: Charged for dumpster haul-off from the site.
  • Shorter Rental: For example, you may be charged full one-week price even if you don’t use the dumpster for a full week.
  • Extra Days: Extra day charge may be as little as $5 – $10 per day, or significantly more. Check with the service providers you are considering.
  • Overflow Fee: Any debris not beneath the Maximum Fill Line on an open top dumpster may incur this charge.
  • Overload Fee: Loads above the Maximum Capacity Weight of a roll-off dumpster are fined for each additional ton.
  • Special Items Fee: For electronics and bulky household items. Regulations vary across local and state sites.
  • Taxes: You will be charged federal and state taxes, in most cases, for your dumpster rental.

  • A focus on sustainability and the environment

  • WM stands by our guarantee of environmental responsibility. We deliver every load of refuse to only certified disposal facilities and landfills. No shortcuts. No illegal dumping.
  • Our commitment to the environment is not only the right thing to do, it’s the law. When you work with WM, you’re not only protecting the beauty of your area. You’re protecting your company’s brand and guarding against potential fees.
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Save yourself time and avoid potential fines by ensuring you’re compliant with local regulations for dumpster placement. Don’t forget to check with your HOA or neighborhood association too.

What items can’t go in a dumpster?

  • WM is proud to support and follow hazardous waste precautions. Environmental safety is important to us. Batteries, asbestos, harmful chemicals, flammable liquids and more are considered environmental hazards and should not go in any dumpster. You will be asked to remove these items if you put them in a rented dumpster.
  • Hazardous materials are classified differently by country, state, county and city. Be familiar with, or ask one of our team members, what is acceptable in your area’s recycling centers and landfills. Additional fees may be charged for some materials. Be clear and up-front on what you will be putting into a dumpster to ensure you will not be penalized for hazardous content. 
  • Importantly, make sure that disposal of any haul-off from your jobsite goes only to certified recycling centers and landfills. That’s how every load is handled by WM, America’s largest waste services provider. 

How can I use a dumpster in a move?

  • After you rent a moving truck, it’s time to get serious about what goes with you to your new location. Start fresh by getting rid of unwanted junk, broken items and general trash instead of taking it with you to your new home. 
  • Simplify Cleanup
  • If you have a large amount of purging to get done, utilize a sturdy, large-sized rental dumpster from WM. Many different sizes and prices are available, and rental durations can be arranged to best meet your moving time frames. You don’t have to get it all done in one weekend. 
  • The first choice to make when renting a dumpster is what size you need. Dumpsters are sized based on how many cubic yards of waste they hold.
  • 10 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 12 feet long x 3 ½ feet high. It holds 10 cubic yards of waste.
  • 20 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 22 feet long x 4 feet high. It holds 20 cubic yards of waste.
  • 30 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 22 feet long x 6 feet high. It holds 30 cubic yards of waste.
  • A 40 yard dumpster is 8 feet wide x 22 feet long x 8 feet high. It holds 40 cubic yards of waste. 
  • *A cubic yard is 3 feet wide x 3 feet long x 3 feet wide. Weight will vary for a cubic yard. For example, a cubic yard of popcorn will weigh significantly less than a cubic yard of housing shingles.
  • Reduce Clutter and Costs
  • The perfect time to arrange for your dumpster is right after you search for a truck or moving company. Moving is on your mind, and you will find that moving charges depend on the amount or volume of goods you plan on hauling from your current location to your future location. You can save in moving costs by removing items from your move load and move list that you don’t want, no longer need, or are just broken.  
  • When you get a quote from a mover, you can ask them to also quote for 2/3 of your original move load. That will give you an idea of what the price could be if you reduce clutter and junk before your move begins. Reducing the quantity and weight of items you will move can even cut down on the amount you spend on boxes, packaging peanuts and protectors, and tape.
  • Have a safe move! WM is here to help you reduce clutter and remove waste with a temporary roll-off dumpster. Contact us to arrange for new curbside service after you move. We would value the opportunity to serve your home or business with a recurring garbage or recycling pickup service.

Are there dumpster alternatives?

This is a 3 cubic yard heavy-duty bag, able to hold 606 gallons of debris or 3,300 pounds of refuse. The bag is 8′ long x 4′ wide x 2’6″ tall, large enough to hold full sheets of plywood or drywall.

  • The easiest way to dispose of concrete is by renting a temporary roll-off dumpster. A 40-yard roll-off is recommended for most jobs that produce concrete debris.
  • Renting a temporary roll-off from WM is easy. Just check availability in your area, choose your dates of service, select your waste type and book your rental.

How do I dispose of construction waste?

  • Renting a roll-off from WM couldn’t be easier. Just check availability in your area, choose your dates of service, select your waste type and book your rental.

How do I dispose of ceramic tile?

  • As with most waste generated by construction, demolition and renovation projects, ceramic tile disposal is best handled by a temporary roll-off dumpster rental.
  • For smaller jobs like single homes or a standalone office, an 8- or 10-yard dumpster should suffice. For larger jobs, you’ll want to consider a 20-, 30- or even 40-yard dumpster.
  • WM offers these sizes and more, with easy rental. Just check availability in your area, choose your dates of service, select your waste type and book your rental.

Where can I drop off construction debris?

  • Waste Management has hundreds of drop-off locations across the United States where you can dispose of your construction debris. If hauling your construction debris to one of our landfills isn’t feasible, you can order a temporary roll-off dumpster or one of our Bagster® bags.

How do I recycle construction material?

  • First, make sure the material is recyclable. Some examples of recyclable construction debris include:
  • Concrete
  • Porcelain
  • Rigid plastics
  • Tile
  • Lumber
  • Metals
  • Masonry
  • Plastic
  • Rock
  • Carpet
  • Insulation
  • WM has experts who can work with you to develop a custom recycling program so that your projects run smoothly and your material finds its next best use. 
  • We’ve also developed cutting-edge sorting and diversion initiatives to ensure it’s easy to stay efficient and compliant while tracking your efforts and gaining points towards LEED® certification.

What size roll-off dumpster do I need for my project?

  • Waste Management offers many different sizes of dumpsters both large and small. The size of roll-off dumpster you need will depend on the type and amoutnt of waste you’ll be producing. For larger scale construction projects, a 40-yard dumpster is typically recommended; however, you can always contact our support team to get the most accurate estimate.

Common Recycling Myths

Grow your recycling IQ by debunking common myths that can help ensure your materials aren’t contaminated and successfully make it all the way through the recycling process and to their next life.

Learn the reality behind the myths to ensure you’re protecting others and the environment by recycling right.

Myth: Most Americans recycle all they can

  • Reality: False.
  • Research shows convenience and commitment are required for maximum recycling. For instance, do you recycle in several rooms of your home? If you only recycle in the kitchen, recyclables in your home office or bathroom get thrown away. So make recycling a collaborative effort where everyone participates, enabling the most recycling of the right materials.

Myth: Recycling arrows on a container mean it is definitely recyclable

  • Reality: Only in some cases. Check the table above and local program guidelines to see what’s recyclable and what’s not.
  • Many plastics cannot be made into new products. Recycle plastics by shape: bottles, jars, jugs and tubs.

Myth: Containers must be squeaky clean in order to be recycled

  • Reality: Containers should be clean, but don’t have to be spotless.
  • While all bottles, cans and containers should be clean, dry and free of most food waste before you place them in your recycling container, they don’t need to be spotless. The goal is to make sure they are clean enough to avoid contaminating other materials, like paper, or your un-lined kitchen recycling bin. Try using a spatula to scrape cans and jars, and putting recyclables in your sink among the dishes you are rinsing to share that same water to rinse and remove residue.

Myth: Even if an item shouldn’t go in the bin, it will get sorted anyway

  • Reality: False. Non-recyclable items are not accepted curbside.
  • Non-recyclable items contaminate recyclables. Recyclables stuck inside plastic bags are at risk for never making it through the recycling process. Conversely, recyclable items placed into garbage containers are hauled to a landfill and cannot be recovered effectively. The right thing to do is put the right recyclables in the recycling container and non-recyclables into garbage containers. Recyclables with the greatest impact are bottles, cans, paper and cardboard.

Myth: Hoses, tanks, shower curtains, swing sets, etc. are recyclable

  • Reality: Just because it’s plastic doesn’t mean it’s recyclable in your recycling program.
  • If it’s not bottles, cans, paper or cardboard, it probably doesn’t belong in your curbside mixed recycling bin and may even require special handling. Just because an item is made from plastic, or contains plastic parts, doesn’t mean recycling facilities can handle it. There are other resources (e.g., Earth911.org) that can help answer questions about what to do with non-recyclables or household hazardous waste.

Myth: All types of glass bottles and jars are recyclable

  • Reality: The acceptance of glass in recycling programs varies by jurisdiction.
  • Glass recycling collection varies in communities across the U.S. Some communities recycle glass with all other recyclables; some collect glass separately at the curb in its own container; and some cities have specific recycling drop-off locations for glass. Some states, like CA, CT, OR, IA, MI, ME, VT, MA and NY, have ‘bottle bill’ laws that allow for a per-bottle deposit when bottles are brought to return centers or retailers for recycling. Please refer to your community’s recycling guidelines for local program information.

Myth: Aerosol cans are acceptable in the recycle bin

  • Reality: It varies by jurisdiction.
  • Most recycling programs accept empty/dry aerosol cans (without the caps). If the can isn’t empty, it could be dangerous. Some fires are caused in baling machines from trace amounts of can chemicals, and cans with leftover propellant have been known to become projectiles when densified/baled. Waste Management facilities and commodity vendors accept steel, mixed metal and aluminum aerosol packages. Multi-material aerosol packages are not recyclable.
