Profile: This is primarily a portable construction dumpster rental business that also does some water and fire damage cleanups and other work. Portable dumpsters are primarily tow behind trailers that have been modified to be enclosed on all sides. There is a gate on the back that is opened for disposal. These portable dumpsters offer the homeowner the huge advantage of minimizing or eliminating the damage done to driveways and yards that may be caused by using the large, steel commercial roll-off type dumpsters.

The dumpster sizes vary from small (6, 10 yards) which rent for $325 +/- to large (4, 20 yards) which rent for $425 +/- per job with the average rental costing $395.

The cost to dispose of the material averages $100 per dumpster. The seller has agreements with several landfills where the material is disposed. In 2017, approximately 450 loads were disposed. The part time employees are largely paid on a commission basis of $50 per delivery and pick up and disposal. They deliver the portable dumpsters and pick them up when full and deliver the debris to the landfills.
