What is the difference between a roll off dumpster and a regular dumpster?

A roll off dumpster “rolls” off the truck. Roll off dumpsters are larger than regular commercial dumpsters. Always open top, these dumpsters have a large door on the back of the container to walk material in. Its sides are low so that trash can be loaded from the side as well.

Will the dumpster damage my driveway?

Roll off dumpsters do not normally damage a driveway or street. We recommend, however, that wood boards be placed at regular intervals on top of the pavement where the dumpster will be positioned, just in case. If you aren’t sure what size or how many wood boards you’ll need, we are happy to offer advice.
