How Roll Off Dumpsters Are Generally Priced
Easy Dumpster Rental strives to make your dumpster rental experience as hassle-free as possible. To this end, we always charge flat rental rates for our dumpsters. We will take the time, however, to explain to you how dumpster rental pricing is done, helping you to understand some of the factors that influence the final cost.
For starters, the larger dumpster you select, the more you will have to pay. Aside from the size, other elements of dumpster rental pricing include the city’s landfill/recycling fees, type of debris, amount/weight of debris, government permit fees and, in some cases, even transportation fees.
The main factors affecting roll off dumpster rental cost are looked at below:
1) Landfill Cost
Landfill fees for the disposal of waste and debris are normally the biggest contributors to roll off rental costs. Since these fees vary from state to state and from city to city, you may find that landfill costs in Athens run either above or below those in other cities. Easy Dumpster will only charge you an extra amount for landfill fees if the material you dispose of goes over the allowed weight off if it is classified as hazardous.
The Athens-Clarke County landfill is located just east of the city of Athens on the Clarke County/Oglethorpe County line. Its entrance is situated on highway 78 at
5700 Lexington Road
2) Rental Period
No matter the size of the dumpster, the standard rental periods are 14-day and 30-day. Years of dumpster rental experience has taught us that hard-and-fast rental periods are not really in the best interest of the customer. So, in an effort to give you hassle-free dumpster rental service, we make our rental periods much quite flexible and suited to your schedule and needs.
3) Debris Type
The cost of dumpster rental takes into account the type of material being disposed of, with some types of waste attracting higher fees than others. Recyclable materials, generally, will cost you less to dispose of, and in some cases disposing of them is free of cost. On the other hand, if the material is deemed hazardous or non-recyclable, then you can expect to pay more for its disposal.
4) Debris Weight
The amount of material to be disposed of is directly tied to the size of the dumpster needed (more waste material = larger dumpster = higher starting cost). Easy Dumpster Rental allows its customers to choose from the most commonly used dumpster sizes: 10-yard, 20-yard, 30-yard, and 40-yard. Our simple and convenient dumpster calculator helps in the selection of the right sized dumpster for your project. Assistance is also available from our knowledge and friendly staff. They are trained to ask exactly the right questions, as they guide you in dumpster selection.
Persons renting a roll off dumpster usually go up a size than estimated – as a precaution. This saves them from having to pay for an extra haul in the case of unforeseen circumstances or just simply under-estimation of the amount of material.

Recycling in Athens
The city has various initiatives in place to encourage and help both residents and business interests to properly dispose of recyclable waste. Included in these is “single stream recycling”, whereby all acceptable recyclables are collected curbside mixed together in one container (without any trash). Drop-off sites for recyclables are located throughout the city, as a convenient option to citizens. There is even the offer for your business to apply for becoming a drop-off site.
There is also the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM), run by Athens-Clarke County. This facility accepts varying quantities of items that are not eligible for inclusion in the single stream curbside recycling cart and are usually difficult to recycle or dispose of. CHaRM charges residential and commercial customers minimal fees to for its services.
Are you unsure of what to do with food scraps, unused medications or demolition material? Athens provides residents with a recycling guide packed full of ideas on how to best handle and prepare different categories of items before they are sent for recycling. The guide also gives information on their Leaf and Limb services through which they collect leaves, grass and cutting. These item are used in the landfill’s composting initiative.
