Small Project Dumpsters

When you have a clean-up or residential remodel that creates more waste than your Schaap Sanitation trash cart can handle, it’s time to consider a small project dumpster.

Small Project Dumpsters by Schaap Sanitation are a convenient and safe way to contain demolition/construction or clean-up debris. We provide a wide variety of construction containers and open top roll-offs.

Why You Should Consider A Dumpster or Roll-Off

  • Convenient
  • Cost-effective
  • Safe containment of debris
  • Delivery and removal on your schedule – on-demand or on a regular basis
  • Saves you the hassle of hauling waste to the landfill

Call our SW Minnesota trash services office at 800-293-5642 to learn more about furnishing a quick and efficient set-up by our experienced and DOT approved employees. Our sales representative will meet with you or your contractor to determine exactly what size is needed to get the job done.
