Dumpsters are large containers for disposal of waste. There are actually different types of dumpsters based on size and how they are loaded and transported. Below are the most common types of dumpsters for dumpster rentals in Massachusetts.
Front Load Dumpsters
Front load dumpsters are typically emptied by a truck that picks up the entire unit and empties the contents into a garbage container. The opening is therefore typically in the front (thus the name “front load”). There are also slots on the sides of the dumpster which are used by the garbage truck to secure and lift the container. Because of its design, these units are generally smaller than other dumpster sizes.
Roll Off Dumpsters
Roll off dumpsters are much larger in size and capacity than front load dumpsters. These dumpsters get their name from the loading and unloading process. They are “rolled-off” the back of a truck with a winch or similar mechanism. The units are not picked up and transported to a facility for unloading. Roll off dumpsters are ideal for disposal of larger items or larger volumes of waste.
