The cost of a roll-off container is based on a number of factors, including the size of the container, the service location, the number of days the container is needed, and what kind of materials will be collected in the container. The Recovery Yard is the state’s only non-profit construction recycling and demolition facility. Container estimates are always free, and our prices are very competitive.
Roll-off containers are available in four sizes: 10 cubic yards, 20 cubic yards, 30 cubic yards, and 40 cubic yards.
It typically takes two to three working days to deliver a roll-off container to your site. This can vary, based on seasonal demand. Please note that additional fees apply for deliveries outside of Washtenaw County.
No liquids, food debris, or compost may be put into roll-off containers. Containers can be provided for compost only, if needed. Extra charges apply for Freon appliances, televisions, computer monitors, and tires.
Roll-off containers must be located on paved and/or reinforced surfaces only. Other areas may be acceptable as determined by an on-site pre-assessment. A user signature is required before a container may be placed on site.
Materials from all container loads are sorted to recover cardboard, clean lumber (non-treated, painted, stained or varnished), metal, concrete, asphalt, and electronics.
