Residential Rolloff Containers

Renting a temporary rolloff container saves homeowners time and labor with their home remodel or clean out projects. Since 1960, area residents have used Coastal Rolloff to access their needs, and safely deliver their container in San Luis Obispo County within 24 hours Monday through Friday.

The cost of a rolloff container is based on the following:

  • Type of Waste to be Disposed
  • Weights and Measures
  • Container Size
  • Haul Time
  • Number of Days Container is On-Site

To save you time and headaches, here's the step by step process:

Step 1 – Write a description of the type and quantity of materials you need removed.

For a comprehensive list of what materials are accepted or not accepted in rolloff containers, please refer to the Materials section.

  • Construction & Demolition (C&D) Debris
    Materials used to build a house or structure like boards, wood, drywall, windows, doors, roofing shingles, tile, plywood, toilets, bathtubs, shower stalls, cabinets, countertops, etc.
  • Household Waste
    Items placed inside the home or building after it was built like clothes, furniture, carpet, etc.
  • Heavy Materials
    High-density materials like concrete, stone, asphalt, dirt, sod, brick, block, stumps, logs, etc.

Step 2 – Choose a container size.

It's not every day that we deal in the Cubic Yard of anything, but the chart below makes it easy. For example, if a garage has a pile of debris 18 feet long by 8 feet wide that equals 144 square feet. If the pile is 2 feet high that's 288 cubic feet. Knowing that a yard is 3 feet, divide 288 cubic feet by 27 (3 x 3 x 3) to calculate cubic yards.

Our experienced professionals will also help you select the right size(s) for your residential clean out, remodel or demolition project.

How to Calculate Cubic Yards

Length in Ft Width in Ft Square Ft Height in Ft Cubic FtDivide by  
18 x 8 = 144 x 2 = 288 27 = 10
10 x 10 = 100 x 10 = 1,000 27 = 37
Length in Ft 18 10
x Width in Ft 8 10
= Square Ft 144 100
x Height in Ft 2 10
= Cubic Ft 288 1000
Divide By 27 = 10 37

Step 3 – Measure the area for adequate and safe rolloff placement.

Before ordering a container, it is wise to measure the area where you want the Coastal Rolloff driver to unload the container and to check that there are no overhead hazards like power lines and tree branches.

The images below show a dump-style truck unloading a rolloff container to a site. Note the overall length needed and up to 20 feet of aerial space is needed for safe container delivery and pickup.

If there isn't room to deliver the container on private property, please refer to Encroachment Permits.

Step 7 – Meet the driver for the container delivery and placement.

Someone at least 18 years of age is required to be on site to meet the driver to explain where the container is to be placed, and to also answer the pre-delivery phone call from the driver.


Step 8 – Load acceptable materials evenly.

Please load the materials evenly in the container and do not fill above the top level. If the container is loaded unevenly or too high, it will impact safety, and California state law forbids us from transporting the container in this unlawful condition.
