A roll off dumpster is a portable dumpster that comes in different sizes. The roll off trailer, allows for dumpsters to be delivered to different sites, rolled off the trailer or truck and be left to be filled. The roll off mechanism allows the driver of the truck to be able to deliver and pickup up many dumpsters, dispose of their waste and deliver them empty to other people during a short period of time – as opposed to needing a truck for every dumpster. Dumposaurus offers excellent info on this.
This type of dumpster is perfect for a construction job or a home owner – allowing it to be filled at the leisure of the customer or contractor that wants to rent a dumpster. These dumpsters are measured in square yards and generally range from ten to forty yards per container. Depending on the need of the consumer, a certain sized dumpster will be delivered by a truck with a roll off trailer with ease.
Most roll off dumpsters can be filled from either the top by throwing the disposal items over and in, or from a back or side door that typically swings open and then fastens closed. The more methodical you are about loading, the better use you can make of the top load and the back and side swinging doors. Larger, heavier items should be loaded first through the back or side door and then the smaller, lighter items thrown in on top – but never higher than level with the sides, since the dumpster does need to safely be able to travel to the disposal center on the roadways.
When your roll off dumpster is picked up, the driver will pull the hook from the trailer, fasten it to your rental dumpster and then pull it back up onto the rollers and and onto the trailer. This is a very easy process if the dumpster is properly loaded, secured and was delivered to a firm, flat area. The roll off dumpster is a great invention making waste disposal easy for both the consumer and the disposal company.
