Roll Off Containers FAQ

Q. What is the most popular roll off container size?

A. Without a doubt the 20 cubic yard dumpster rental is the most popular. We call it the “20 yarder”.  It has a very manageable footprint that fits on any driveway.  The 20 yarder is 12 feet long by 8 feet wide by 6 feet tall.  It has double doors on the back (just like barn doors) that open up and let you carry, drag, or wheel your trash into it.  See the dumpster sizing post to the left.

Q. Where should I take my paint, hazardous material and car tires?

A. The Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program provides convenient access to proper hazardous material disposal for all district residents. The MARC Solid Waste Management District encompasses Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte and Ray counties in Missouri. Residents of  participating communities may take paint, car tires, chemicals, etc. to the permanent collection facilities in Kansas City, Missouri, and Lee’s Summit at no charge. (Proof of residency is required.) Residents of non-participating communities may access the Lee’s Summit facility for a fee.

Q. Do I have to be there for the dumpster drop off and pick up.

A. No. If you pay by credit card over the phone you do not need to be present.

Q. I have at least 40 yards of junk, but there is no way to fit a big container on my driveway. What is my best cost solution?

Q. How long does it take to get a dumpster rental?

A. We can have one to you the same day in most cases.  The next day for sure.

Q. Does the rental fee include all costs?

A. Yes.  You pay only the dumpster rental fee.  There are no dumping fee’s, pick-up fee’s or any other fee’s.

Q. When we are done filling it, how long before you can come an pick it up.

A. Same day in most cases, by the next business day for sure.

Q. Are you insured?

A. Yes.  We carry full coverage.
