Many people use dumpsters all the time at work or for construction projects, but you probably have a lot of questions the first time you rent a dumpster. Junk King San Francisco is here to help with friendly service at every step. Here, we’ll shed light on the most common questions about dumpster rental.
When you are ready to rent a dumpster in San Francisco, call us or book online! We have competitive prices, convenient and flexible scheduling, and a green commitment to recycling.
What’s the cost for dumpster rental in San Francisco?
We have a customer-friendly pricing model for dumpster rental that lets you pay ONLY for the space you use. That’s right, you can pay based on volume so you get a lower price for a partially filled dumpster. We have a low minimum of $148, and even a full container costs just $368. The other guys will make you pay a maximum price no matter how little you actually put in!
There are other possible charges, such as for extra days and extra weight. We also have to pass on special disposal or recycling fees for certain items such as televisions. Rest assured, our pricing is all upfront and honest!
What size dumpster should I rent?
Don’t waste money by choosing a larger dumpster rental than you really need. Junk King San Francisco has containers that hold 12 cubic yards, so you have more space than a traditional 10-yard dumpster. The JK MINI can handle small to medium home improvement projects and cleaning needs. If you’re unsure, call us to describe your needs and we’ll let you know your best option.
What can (and can’t) I put in a dumpster?
We place very few restrictions on what you can put in the MINI. Hazardous waste such as flammables, gas, oil, paint, and ammo are prohibited.
Some other San Francisco dumpster rental companies do not let you use their containers for dense construction debris. Junk King lets you use the MINI for dirt, cement, brick, and other debris. Just be sure to watch the weight—these items hit the weight capacity at about 1/3 full.
How much can I put in?
It is important to avoid overfilling the container. For safety reasons, nothing should be sticking out of the top of the dumpster, or else you’ll have to break it down or remove it.
The MINI dumpster rental comes with a 2,000 pound weight limit. Beyond that, we need to charge $0.05 per pound.
How long can I keep the dumpster?
Junk King San Francisco has pricing for 3, 5 or 7 days. Set the delivery and pick-up times before the dumpster rental, but feel free to contact us if you need more time.
What if I need more time?
Simply re-schedule your pick-up appointment if your project is taking longer than expected. We have a reasonable per diem service charge for extra days. Please just be sure to let us know so our crew doesn’t make an unnecessary trip.
Where should I put the dumpster?
Most people use their dumpster rental in the driveway. Here in San Francisco, you may need to get creative if your street is narrow or you don’t have a driveway. However, the JK MINI has a compact size (about 8 feet wide) and it’s driveway and sidewalk friendly!
Which is better: dumpster rental or junk removal service?
We started Junk King as a full-service junk removal company with a focus on recycling. We now offer more options with our MINI dumpster rental. You still get helpful service and the junk gets handled in an eco-friendly way.
Dumpster rental makes sense for projects that last a few days or longer. It’s also convenient to have a dumpster nearby if you are creating debris from demo or renovation.
If you’re wary of loading a dumpster yourself, we can pick up your stuff instead. We have a similar pricing model for junk removal — you pay based on the volume of junk. If you have a room full of junk or just a few items to throw away, it may be easier to have our guys haul it away rather than renting a dumpster.
