Understand what size container and what you will need it for.
It is also very important to know where you want the container to be placed and to make sure the surface can handle the weight of both the empty and full container along with the truck. Containers weigh between 2000 and 4000lbs empty and as much as 18,000lbs full. The average roll-off truck weights nearly 36,000lbs with no container. It is very important to make sure the surface can handle the weight.
Old paint cans: Although our ‘unacceptable sections’ state no paint of any kind can be placed in the containers, it is possible to manipulate them to dispose of them properly. You may open your paint cans and fill them with cat litter. The litter absorbs the moister in the paint, creating a solid after only a few days. The cans can then be placed in the dumpster and successfully removed.
