At Independent Waste, we customize each quote to ensure that each of our customers receives exactly the services they need—nothing more, nothing less.

Our pricing is all-inclusive, which means that all delivery fees, pickup fees, local taxes, and other expenses are included in the rate. You never have to worry about hidden costs.

Independent Waste rents 20-yard, 30-yard, and 40-yard roll-off dumpsters for commercial and residential use. We recommend 20-yard dumpsters for most residential projects. For commercial clients, the size depends on the type of material you’re disposing of.

An additional fee may be charged if this occurs. Please speak to our team for details.

Our 20-yard roll-off dumpsters are ideally suited for concrete disposal. Once you’ve filled the dumpster, our drivers will haul it away on your behalf.
