Dumpster or Temporary Container Rental

For clean-out projects, renovations, and yard waste removal, we have the container to suit your project. From a small 4-yard dumpster to a 40-yard roll off, there is a dumpster to meet your needs.

Our larger open top containers (dumpsters) feature a convenient swing door at the end to make it easy to walk in all your junk, debris, or trash. We have 4-yard dumpsters, 10, 15, and 20-yard open top dumpsters, and 30 and 40-yard roll-off containers.

Standard rental for our open top dumpsters is 10 days, but we also have options for long-term needs.

Curbside Composting Program / Organics Pickup

Our growing curbside composting program is now available to residents in Amherst, Easthampton, Hadley, and Northampton. Our goal is to make curbside composting as easy and common as basic recycling has become.

We'll provide each customer with a kitchen compost pail (2 gallons) and a compost cart (65 gallons) for pickup at curbside. Pickup is available every two weeks. Call 413-587-4005 or contact us via our contact form for pricing in your town. See our composting page for additional information.
