Chicago Dumpster Rental


  • Know your size.

It’s important to determine how much waste you plan to need to haul and what size dumpster you need to fit it. You don’t want to order a dumpster then realize you have way more junk than you first thought. Pro Waste Inc. Dumpsters include:

– 10 Yard Dumpster: 14x8x3

Ideal for heavy debris like concrete, sand, dirt, rock, ceramic tile. Also great for small projects, home owners looking to get rid of random items.

– 20 Yard Dumpster: 14x8x6

Similar to our 15 Yard Dumpster in function, just larger for more capacity. Great for Landscape, light yard waste, store closings, construction waste, renovation waste, room debris.

  • Call ahead to reserve your dumpster

Don’t leave it until last minute to reserve your dumpster. Rental companies have limited resources, and they may not have a dumpster available for you on that particular day. Also understand when and how long you need the dumpster and how quickly you will fill it up. This will all help the process of renting your dumpster be a smooth and planned-out operation.

  • Go with a reputable company

Just like any other purchase, dumpster rental reliability and prices vary by location and provider. Research around and be sure to check out the company’s reviews on Yelp, Angie’s List, Home Advisor and Google. By going with a reputable company, you will be able to ensure that you will be getting a good service and a good price.


  • Over-fill your dumpster

Make sure that you do not underestimate the amount of space you need to get rid of all your items. Similarly, if you do overload the roll-off dumpster, the company may not accept it back with all of the items. An overfilled dumpster is a hazard to the hauler as well as the public due to materials can fall out of the dumpster in transit.

  • Assume big names know best

By shopping small and local, you can find not only a cheaper service than the big dogs, but you’re more likely to receive a more personalized service too. Larger nation-wide companies can be difficult to work with because they try to streamline the process. Supporting local small businesses is one of the best ways to help improve the community and ensure you’re getting the service you deserve.
