Difference between a front load dumpster & roll off dumpster rental?



A dumpster is a dumpster, right?  No, there are 2 basic types of dumpsters that can be rented.  A Roll off dumpster and front load dumpster.  A roll off dumpster is generally what you see at a construction site, residential location, or being used by someone moving.  A front load dumpster is generally what you see behind a business, shopping center, restaurant, or commercial facility.


Roll off dumpsters are commonly referred to as a open top dumpster, roll-off dumpster, construction dumpster, rental dumpster, bin, or simply a dumpster. These are general on a short term rental and is only needed 1 or couple of times. All roll off type dumpsters have an open top and usually one door.  The design of these dumpsters will vary, but most are longer than taller and hauled on a large CDL truck.  The two most common types of lifts that roll off dumpsters use are either a hook lift or a winch cable. Hook style lifts have become more common and have less issues.


Front loading dumpster are usually long terms rentals and are tied with a contract.  These are the type of dumpsters you would see behind a shopping center, restaurant, or business complex. Most governments require them if food waste is going to be disposed off, because they are seal at the base and do not let water out; unlike the roll off dumpster.  Also, governments require front loading dumpster to have lid to prevent rain from filling them and to keep animals out of food waste. The design is taller to take up less room, usually have 1 or 2 sliding doors to load trash, lids, and seal water tight around the base.  Unlike roll off dumpsters, front load dumpster are not hauled away everytime they are emptied. A large compactor truck with a forklift style lift.  Then they pick up it up and tip it upside down into the back of the truck.  It is very similar to how weekly trash pick up is done.


Lets review the differences of the two dumpster types.
