Delaware County, known in local colloquialism as “Delco”, was so named for the Delaware River, which all of the County’s waterways drain into at some point. The Delaware River itself is perhaps most famous for George Washington’s nocturnal crossing of the river during the American Revolution, when he took the Hessian troops then occupying New Jersey by surprise. Chester City is the home of the MLS soccer team the Philadelphia Union, in addition to the oldest baseball league in the country, the Delco League. Such major sporting events produce vast quantities of waste, including discarded plastic cups, food containers and ticket stubs. Accordingly, the areas surrounding the sites of sporting events often incorporate massive roll-off dumpsters not unlike the roll-off dumpsters often found at construction sites. These massive, wheeled dumpsters can measure anywhere from ten to forty cubic yards, and require purpose-built heavy-duty trucks to empty and manage their phenomenal bulk. You may be familiar with the distinctive arms on the front of many front-loading dump trucks. Roll-off dumpster trucks require a different beast entirely. Unlike the hydraulic prongs on typical front-loading dumpster trucks, roll-off dumpsters do exactly as their name suggests, rolling on and off the back of the truck at designated dump sites for emptying and the disposal of their contents. Of course, it would be extremely hazardous to perform this rolling with only gravity to secure the fully loaded dumpster, so the roll-off truck will be used in conjunction with either a winch or a hook-lift system. Dumpster rental in Delaware County, however, is not limited to these gargantuan containers, and smaller dumpsters are widespread according to need. Many businesses and schools use standard dumpsters that are emptied on-site weekly as they simply do not produce the volume of waste necessary to justify the use of roll-off. Similarly, house clean outs and yard work, although they frequently produce a significant amount of waste, generally require nothing larger than a twenty-yard dumpster.
