Dumpster Rental for Dirt Removal in New Jersey
Looking for a dumpster for dirt removal in New Jersey? If you are a homeowner handling your own yard renovation project, then you may not be aware that dirt removal dumpsters are actually different from the dumpsters that you would use for demolition work or other types of waste. That is because dirt is not taken to a landfill, but disposed of in a different manner. This makes a price difference in the cost of the dumpster rental, and also means that you need to follow some specific rules when filling your dumpster. Sound confusing? Have no fear; the waste disposal experts at Christensen are here to make sure that you get the dumpster you need to make your project as easy and manageable as possible!
We offer two sizes of dumpsters for dirt removal: 10-yards and 20-yards. We do not offer larger containers for dirt disposal for two reasons. The first reason is that even for large projects, a 20-yard dumpster is generally adequate to meet our customer’s needs. The second reason is that dirt is very heavy. It weights approximately 1.25 tons per yard, which means that there are weight limits for the containers because of the trucks that haul away the containers once they are full. Our 10-yard container can hold 10 tons and our 20-yard container can hold 15 tons.
There are other things to keep in mind when getting a dumpster for dirt removal. Because dirt is heavy, you want to protect the site where you are placing the dumpster. We suggest placing a plywood barrier between the dumpster and the ground, to help minimize the risk of damage. You also want to make sure and only put dirt in the dumpster. While you can put in a mix of grass and dirt, doing so means that the dumpster cannot go to a dirt-only site because of possible pesticide contamination, so disposal will cost you more money.
