Roll-off services and gondoals/baskets/hoppers are dependent on type and quantity of material being generated.

Are you looking for information on:

ROLL-OFF CONTAINERS

Roll-off container services are available for the commercial, industrial, and farm-agricultural sector that are producing large volumes of scrap material.

SIZING

Container sizes include:

All roll-off containers have a hinged, side-swinging door at the rear to make loading easy.

For availability, and for assistance in selecting the proper size for your needs, please call us at 989-269-6829 ext. 202 or email us at trucking@dwsalvage.biz.

SCHEDULING

We at D&W require at least two business days advance notice when scheduling a container drop off, pick up, or exchange.  This allows us adequate time to arrange trucking.

We do our best to attend to containers on a first-come, first-serve basis.  However, if there are multiple containers along the same route, we may attend to those that make sense logistically first.  For this reason, delivery, exchange, and removal times are not guaranteed.

PLACEMENT

Please keep in mind that all containers are delivered via semi-truck   Therefore, adequate space must be available for a vehicle that is approximately 60 feet long to maneuver.

 

This means:

  • Making sure that all driveways are capable of bearing the weight of a fully-loaded semi (ie. not overly muddy or sandy).

  • Ensuring that there are no overhead obstructions, including power lines, tree limbs, or eaves/overhangs.

 

In the event that the location is not sufficient to bear the weight of the semi, or if we are unable to place a container due to obstruction, towing charges and/or dry-run fees may apply.  (See the section below entitled Charges and Fees)

LOADING

Some basic rules apply when loading roll-off containers:

 

  • Containers are to be used for scrap metal only.  We do not accept and will not pay for anything that is not metal.  Prohibited items include but are not limited to: (See our Prohibited Items page for a full listing of unacceptable items)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Containers are to be filled to their capacity.  For this reason it is HIGHLY recommended that an excavator with a thumb, or other equivalent piece of equipment, be used to load the container and pack down any scrap material.  This omits dead space, allowing for the maximum weight to be loaded.  Any containers returned having far less material than the container can handle (e.g. placing only a small pickup or trailer load in a 30-yard container, or placing only 9,000 pounds in a 80-yard container) will be subject to a light load charge.  (See the section below entitled Charges and Fees).

 

  • The contents of the container shall not be heaped up or protrude over the sides--they should be "water level" full with the top of the container.  It is unsafe to transport a container that is heaped up over the sides, and it also puts our semis over the legal height limit for transport.

 

  • If our driver arrives to pick up a container and its contents are heaped over the top of the container, he will NOT pick it up and a dry run fee will be imposed. (See the section below entitled Charges and Fees)  At that point, it is up to the customer to reload or remove any excess material before calling us to return for pick up of the properly loaded container.

 

  • Care is to be taken when loading our containers.  If the container is damaged, mistreated, or lost while it is in a customer's possession, it will be the responsibility of the customer to pay for any and all costs related to the damage. (See the section below entitled Charges and Fees)

PRICING/PAYMENTS

All prices for received material are based upon D&W Salvage's published price at the time of pick-up.

Instead of charging a placement fee, D&W Salvage uses a Distance Deduction fee schedule for the use of our roll-off container services.

Distance Deductions are determined by the most direct route (i.e. 'as the crow flies') from D&W Salvage to the container placement location.  These deductions are designed to help cover our costs for wages, fuel, and truck wear and tear.  A general rule of thumb is that for every seven (7) miles away from D&W Salvage, another distance zone begins.  Each distance zone marks another $5 off/Ton of our yard price.  Click here for an interactive Distance Zone Map.

Example:  If you live in Minden City, it is approximately 17 miles "as the crow flies" from D&W Salvage.  This puts it in Distance Zone 3, in which we deduct $15/ton off of yard price.  That means that if scrap prices at the time of pick up were $120/ton, we would pay you $105/ton for your material.  ($120/ton - $15/ton = $105/ton)

All payments are made within 30 days from the date of container removal and will be mailed in the form of a check.  

CHARGES AND FEES

Towing Charges

 

It is up to the customer to ensure that the container placement location is free of obstructions and is able to accommodate the weight of a loaded semi-truck.  In the event that we are asked to place a container in a location that cannot bear the weight of our semi (ie. overly sandy/muddy driveway or field) and we become stuck, it is the customer's responsibility to pay for any towing charges.

 

 

Dry Run Fee

 

When D&W Salvage is unable to complete a container delivery, exchange, or removal due to conditions that can easily be controlled by the customer, a Dry Run Fee will be issued.  Examples of situations when a Dry Run Fee will come into play are:

 

Overloaded Container

 

Unsafe Container Access

 

Inadequate Access to the Container

 

Errors in Delivery/Pick-Up Instructions

 

Obstructions/Unfavorable Placement Conditions

 

Called to Pick-Up/Exchange Before Ensuring Container was Ready for Pick-Up

 

 

Dry Run Fees are a flat rate fee of $150.

 

 

Light Load Charges

 

A "Light Load" means that the container has not been loaded to its full potential.  This occurs when the container is loaded by hand and/or is filled with larger, bulky items that have not been packed down using some type of equipment.  As a result, dead space occurs that could have been used for more scrap metal, and the container is underweight.  In this instance, a substantial reduction in the price of the material will occur, otherwise known as a Light Load Charge.  Light Load Charges will be handled on a case-by-case basis since every container's placement location and quantity of material is unique.

 

 

Damage Charges

 

If the container is damaged, mistreated, or lost while it is in a customer's possession, it will be the responsibility of the customer to pay for any and all costs related to the loss or damage.  This includes things outside of normal wear and tear such as theft, graffiti, wheel damage, bent rails, and damaged/bent sides. (The only exception is any damage resulting from D&W Salvage's handling of the containers)

PLACEMENT

All gondolas/baskets/hoppers are delivered via a flatbed truck with an approximately 24 foot bed.  Therefore, adequate space must be available for our truck to deliver your container(s).

A forklift must also be available to load/unload the requested gondolas/baskets/hoppers at the time of placement.

In the event that the placement location does not have a forklift available to offload the containers, or if we are unable to place a container due to obstruction, dry-run fees may apply.  (See the section below entitled Charges and Fees)

  • Containers are to be filled to their capacity.  Our drivers will not make a special trip to pick up a container that is nearly empty.

  • The contents of the container shall not be heaped up or protrude over the top or sides of the container.

 

  • If our driver arrives to pick up a container and its contents are heaped over the top of the container, he will NOT pick it up.  It will be up to the customer to quickly and efficiently level the top of the container while our driver is there.  If this cannot be done in a timely manner, a dry run fee will be imposed. (See the section below entitled Charges and Fees)  At that point, it is up to the customer to reload or remove any excess material before calling us to return for pick up of the properly loaded container.
