A 40 yard dumpster is the largest size dumpster provided by NASA Services. It best suits large scale jobs, such as cleaning construction and demolition debris, home remodels, and major cleanouts.
A 3 yard dumpster is the best choice for projects including construction, commercial, and residential jobs. A temporary bin is the ideal option for small home remodeling jobs and garage cleanups, not heavy construction debris, such as brick, concrete, and sand.
Roll-out Service / Backyard Services
NASA offers curbside Roll-out and Backyard Services to customers for an additional charge upon request. Roll-out services include collection of refuse, green waste, and recycling carts from a location other than curbside. The service requires that the driver dismounts the collection vehicle in order to obtain the carts from their storage location, empty them and properly return them to their storage location.
To utilize this service, the customer must grant NASA the right of access onto the premises in order to carry out the services. Carts must not exceed 60 pounds.
