Find the best roll-off container with Plum Creek!
Construction and demolition waste as well as other types of waste are commonly disposed of in roll-off containers. Some roll-off containers do not have an open top and must be used with commercial or industrial trash compactors.
Most roll-off containers have a swinging door at the end to facilitate the disposal of waste. Construction debris may come from a demolition site, a construction site, or a remodeling site.
Also, roll-off containers can be used for any job that requires a lot of materials to be removed. Materials in roll-offs may be disposed of at a landfill or recycled, or recovered or disposed of in another manner.
Size Specifications Of Roll-off Containers
The dimensions of roll-off containers are typically determined by the size of the trucks they are hauling. It is determined by how much debris the container can hold, which is measured in cubic yards. Standard container sizes include 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards.
It is possible to rent roll-offs by volume, but there may be weight limitations. To comply with the laws and regulations regarding road safety and usage, weight limits may be needed. The weight limit will vary depending on the container size with most roll-off providers. Generally, containers that are loaded with more weight than they are allowed will not be hauled away for safety reasons.
A roll-off truck and the road it drives on can suffer damage if containers are overloaded. At the start of the job, the maximum weight is specified. Containers with lower sidewalls are used when disposing of particularly dense materials, such as dirt, rock, or concrete.
By doing so, the risk of exceeding the weight limit is reduced. The Department of Transportation sets a standard weight limit of ten (10) tons of debris per vehicle.
How Roll-off Containers Operate
When the containers are picked up, they are taken to a disposal facility where they are weighed before gross and after tare. Using this difference, the customer is charged based on the net weight.
To increase efficiency, some facilities pre-record the weight of trucks and containers. It eliminates the need for a second weighing by allowing the tare weight to be looked up.
A roll-off truck places roll-offs. Roll-off trucks operate hydraulically to lift the bed of the roll-off truck. A cable and winch system pulls the filled waste container onto the roll-off truck after it has been loaded with waste.
Roll-off trucks are most likely hook-lift systems if they do not have a winch system. Hook-lifting involves the truck extending an arm at a 90-degree angle with a hook on the end that hooks under a bar and gently lifts the dumpster onto the truck.
As they are usually used for containers less than 20 yards in size, hook-lift systems are most commonly found on smaller roll-off trucks. On smaller scale construction jobs such as roof replacements, kitchen remodels, and garage clean-outs, these systems are usually the preferred option.
It is generally considered safer to operate smaller single-axle trucks since they are lighter and can be transported more easily through residential areas. It is important to cover the roll-off when transporting.
