Costs to Start a Dumpster Rental Business
The major initial purchases will be a truck, trailers and dumpsters. Truck N Trailer has used roll-off trucks ranging from $60,000 up to $100,000, while new models start at $150,000 and up. Small dumpsters start at $1,000 new, but larger roll-off containers can cost $6,000 or more.
