The two things that have the biggest impact on the cost of renting a dumpster in Tulsa are where you are located and how much debris you need to have removed.
Your location will have a significant impact on the cost of renting a dumpster as each landfill and city municipality will have different fees and taxes associated with disposing of the contents of a roll-off dumpster, the difference can be 300 to 400% from city to city.
The amount and type of debris you will be disposing of will also have a big impact on the cost. Simply the more material and the heavier it is the more it’s going to cost.
Most dumpster rental companies charge a flat fee for the specific sized dumpster, a specific number of days, and for a certain amount of weight. For example, you would receive a bid of $400 for a 30 cubic yard dumpster, for 7 days, and not exceed 5 tons.
However, some dumpster companies may have additional fees for, delivery, landfill costs, fuel charges, etc. So make sure when are quoted a price it is a flat fee for a specific size, time, and weight. Then comparing prices will be very straightforward.
Extra charges may apply if you need to dumpster longer than the scheduled rental period. There is usually a daily fee for extending the rental period that is typically between $3 and $10 per day.
Additionally, if you exceeded to stated weight limit there will be additional fees. Each dumpster is weighed at the landfill or transfer station and the dumpster service pays a fee to dispose of the dumpster. If the dumpster exceeds the agreed upon tonnage there will be an additional weight fee that typically ranges from $30 to $100 per ton of overage, depending on the local landfill fees and taxes.
