Collecting and hauling waste is not a one-size fits all operation. When purchasing a roll-off container, the buyer needs to have a clear understanding of all the different ways the container may be used. Not all jobs are created equal, and containers are more specialized than ever. Here are some tips and facts to help you determine the type of roll-off container that can best handle your job and set you up for a profitable investment.

If you require a standard to heavy duty container that is smooth-sided (with no outside rail structure), and nestable for easy transport, you may consider a tub style roll-off dumpster. Their smooth sides provide an ideal area for signage, which is great for high visibility jobs. Available in 20-30-40 cubic yard sizes and featuring a variety of hook configurations, these containers are a popular choice.

If you are looking for a  heavier duty container, capable of standing up to demanding waste or scrap hauling jobs, consider a rectangular open top roll-off container. Available in a variety of sizes and gauges, these containers can also be configured with a ladder and greasable wheels.

If you are seeking an extreme duty container, ideal for the toughest jobs, like scrap and demolition, consider the RockBox from Wastequip. Made from Hardox® wear plate, the RockBox is 4x stronger than ordinary mild steel grades, while weighing 20% less and lasting twice as long as traditional heavy-duty roll-off containers.

Roll off containers can be revenue producing assets and keeping them in active duty is the best way to maximize your investment. Buying the container that best aligns with your needs will set you on the path to profit.

Knowing which container you need for your job can be challenging but the experts at Wastequip are here to help. Need help identifying what you need for your next job? Contact Wastequip and find a local sales representative to help you get started.
