Renting a dumpster is a great idea for your home projects. It will save you money on disposal fees, it’s not as hard on the body when you only have to move from the house to the driveway and, of course, it can save you money! Here’s everything you need to know about dumpster rental prices in Southeast Louisiana.


How Many Days Do You Need A Dumpster? 

Depending on who’s providing you the dumpster rental, the costs may vary based on the number of days you’ll need the container. Do they charge per day or is there some sort of flat rate involved? At Bin There Dump That we offer a standard 7-day rental into our dumpster rental prices to take all of the guesswork out of how much you’ll pay for each day you have the dumpster. You can always collaborate with our Dumpster Consultants if you require the bin for longer in which we’ll charge a minimal extra days fee for any day after the 7th.


What is the Cost of Dumping at the Landfill?

The only consistent thing about landfill rates is that they’re different in every parish. In Southeast Louisiana, you can expect to pay somewhere between $50 and $100 per ton. Most dumpster suppliers will bake in weight disposal as part of their pricing, allotting a certain weight per container.

What Type of Waste are You Discarding?

The type of waste you’re putting in your dumpster can also affect your costs. Keep in mind when you’re thinking about these costs that most dumpster rental companies do not accept hazardous waste for disposal. What they do accept are typical household waste and non-hazardous construction materials. Here’s a quick list to give you some ideas:


  • Cardboard
  • Shingles
  • Regular household Waste
  • Drywall

All waste is not created equal and you can expect a dense load of roofing shingles and debris to cost more than loose household items you’ve collected from a garage cleanout.


What Size Dumpster Do You Need?

One of the main factors that can affect dumpster rental prices of your rental is the size of the dumpster you rent for your project. You may be able to rent dumpsters as small as 2 yards or as large as 40 yards. At Bin There Dump That we’ve found that the following dumpster sizes are the most popular for residential use:


  • 4-yard
  • 10-yard
  • 14-yard
  • 20-yard


If you only have a small project, a 4-yard dumpster is usually more than enough and it’s more convenient than a couple of runs to the landfill. It will be your least expensive option as well. Prices do go up as you go up in size, but even a 20-yard dumpster at Bin There Dump That is still reasonably priced.


Where Are You Located?


The old adage, location, location, location isn’t just a worn-out phrase. Your location can impact the price you’ll pay for a dumpster. Some dumpster rental companies may charge you mileage if you live in an out of the way rural location and that can get expensive.


At Bin There Dump That, as long as you’re in our service area our standard 7-day rental fee will apply if you don’t go over the allotted weight limit for you dumpster size. Now that you know what goes into pricing a dumpster rental, it should be easier to set aside the right budget for your project.
