Debris weight + Dumpster weight limits: Why they matter

All roll-off dumpsters have a weight limit, and although your debris may physically fit inside the dumpster you rented, it could end up being extremely heavy and exceeding the dumpster’s weight limit. Shingles, drywall, carpet, concrete, and asphalt are dense materials that quickly add weight, which may require you to only fill a portion of the dumpster. Going over the weight limit may cause you to incur additional charges, so it is important to consider the type and amount of debris you are planning to dispose of when choosing your dumpster size.

What Our Customers Say


  • The last year we stayed home more than ever like everyone else and made us realize we really needed to declutter and just get rid of old clothes, furniture, and the last carpet we had left. We thought just our regular waste bins would do but we were wrong. As soon as we started cleaning out on a Saturday morning with just one room, we realized we needed to call a dumpster service. Redbox plus really came through with one of their smaller ones and they even taught us about what we were allowed to throw away in their dumpster and what wasn’t. All we had to do was call them to pick up the dumpster after we were done and that was it!

    – Jodie C.

  • A home roofing contractor we liked disappointed us a bit when he didn’t come prepared with a dumpster for all the waste. We googled for the best dumpster rental and found redbox+ Dumpsters. The job was going to take all week, so the porta potty combo was probably the most convenient one for us. We called in the morning and the rolloff was here by the afternoon! Really recommended and they even took care of both the waste in the container and the toilet. Awesome service.

    – Ralf H.

  • Can’t say enough good things about redbox+ Dumpsters of Fort Worth. We were really doubting even going through with our landscaping renovation because we were told we would need to rent a container for several days, but their customer service made it as easy as just telling them when what and where. They answered any questions we had and it ended up making the entire project finish ahead of schedule.

    – Xavier M.

  • Finally got to do the bathroom remodeling we have been planning for years and our contractor recommended redbox+ Dumpsters of Fort Worth. We really thought there wasn’t much to a dumpster rental company and that all of them were the same, but recommendations are good so we went with them. I can’t imagine ever even thinking about anyone else again for dumpster rentals! They’re red, clean, and their midsize ones are really appropriate for residential areas. Customer service was great too.

    – Rebbeca S.

  • We rented one of their toilet and dumpster combos for the extra room we were building at home. But we forgot who was going to take care of the…waste in the toilets. They didn’t need any reminding from us. They came the same day, cleaned it out with their neat pump and vac system, at no extra charge, and properly disposed of everything. We didn’t have to worry about a thing, only paying them.

    – Carol T.

  • We didn’t have a big budget after a fire damaged our garage and part of our living room and we needed to get to work quickly on repairs. Worrying about all the waste from the fire damage was the last thing on our minds. redbox+ Dumpsters really came through. Affordable, they got here right away and helped us with separating what we could throw into the dumpster and what we couldn’t (you can’t just dump a burned garage door motor anywhere).

    – Marcos K.
