Didn't want to start a range war on the "Papering a Dormer" post. See what
happens on this Q.
Need to get a drop off container to put 26 square of single layer shingles
removed from roof. Anyone have an estmate based on experience of a
container size? Can figure weight but that does me no good.
Probably get it a bit bigger and get rid of some garage stuff.
A 9 yard dumpster will be suffice for the old shingles, wrappers, & scraps
for 26 square single layer. When we used to use dumpsters, we figured 30
square for 9 yards. Be aware, if you have old wood, you may want to save to
put in last, so you don't create voids if the wood isn't laying flat in the
dumpster, creating problems with getting the shingles in the dumpster.
Of course you'll want a bigger one for getting rid of some "garage stuff"
also. Take note b/4 you decide to get rid of the garage stuff. In this
area, the dumpster haulers get rid of construction debris cheaper than a
hodge podge of debris. If your area is the same way, you may find an
additional expense for dump fees because of what you put in the dumpster.
Garbage is usually a no-no, same goes for tires, chemical/paints, aerosol
cans, batteries, etc.
Thanks for the replies. Both are good pieces of info with two different
options. Will check out the flat fee vs. by weight as well as the
Dump fees tend to be higher here due to the "green" factor. Good thing is
you can can take scrap metal to the dump for free but if you have someone
haul it you'll get charged for the weight.
