We get it—the last thing you want to worry about is removing waste from your home or jobsite.

If you’re like most people, you want to get it gone quickly, easily, and conveniently…

And that’s exactly why we’re here. But before you tackle your next project, there are a few options for waste removal you need to know about—junk removal and dumpster rentals.

It all comes down to the size and scope of your project, the type of waste you need to get rid of, and the volume of waste being produced.

So, let’s dive in. Here’s everything you need to know about roll-off dumpster rentals vs. junk removal services.  

Dumpster Rental v. Junk Removal: What’s the Difference?

The main difference between dumpster rental and junk removal is the amount of waste the volume of waste these services handle, the duration or your project, and pricing…

Material volume

If you expect minimal waste (3-5 large items), our junk removal service is an excellent choice. On the other hand, if you have anything more than a few large items, dumpster rental is a better option. We offer dumpsters from 10-40 cubic yards, built to handle waste from projects large and small. 

Project duration

While we aim to keep our dumpster rental options flexible, scheduling is a factor. Typically, roll-off dumpster are rented for at least 3-4 days, and weekly rentals are common. Dumpsters provide flexibility and versatility, while junk removal is a quick and easy solution for disposing of a few items.


Depending on where you live, you may need a permit to rent and keep your dumpster on-site. So, the cost of a permit (as well as daily rental costs) are worth considering. On the other hand, junk removal is priced per trip. 

Dumpster Rental & Junk Removal: The Pros and Cons

With the differences between dumpster rental and junk removal out of the way, let’s dive into the pros and cons of each option… 

The Pros of Dumpster Rentals

Flexibility: No need to worry about multiple trips—rent a dumpster by the day and use it for as long as you need. 

Affordability: Expecting to call us for a more than a few junk removal pickups? Chances are, a dumpster rental will save you money and time. 

Versatility: If you’re like most people, you’ll end up with more project waste than you expect. Ensure you’ve got the space to get rid of it with a dumpster. 

The Cons of Dumpster Rentals 

Loading: Depending on what you’re getting rid of, loading a dumpster on your own may be difficult.

Location: Depending on your location and project, getting a permit (when necessary) and finding a place for your dumpster may be difficult. 

The Pros of Junk Removal

Efficiency: We’ll do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to, and get your unwanted items removed quickly and easily. 

Low Prices: If you’ve got a limited number of items to get rid of, chances are our junk removal service will save you money.

Single Item Pickup: For just a handful of large items (furniture, debris, etc), our junk removal service is the clear winner.

The Cons of Junk Removal 

Item Limits: As we mentioned, junk removal is limited to a few items, and calling us for multiple pickups may be more expensive than renting a dumpster.

Scheduling Pickups: While we take care of business quickly, you’ll still have to call us to schedule a pickup time, rather than having a dumpster on-site and ready to go.
