WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- There is now a new way for West Lafayette neighbors to get rid of their trash with the introduction of roll-off dumpsters for rent.

The West Lafayette Street and Sanitation Department said it has been a struggle to take away hundreds of pound of trash from one person's home.

So the solution is 20 and 30 yard dumpsters.

They hold 20 to 30 cubic yards of waste which is about 10 to 20 truckloads.

They cost $300 to $350, are dropped off and picked up and can be kept for seven days.

Mayor Dennis said this will alleviate problems with trash and employees.

"If you set it on the curb we are going to pick it up, but what we realized is that it's creating problems, not just for the volume of stuff being set out, but it is also creating challenges for our employees," said Dennis.

Call the street department to rent a dumpster. (765) 775-5242

Remember you can not put concrete, dirt, gravel, bricks, tires, chemicals or electronics inside them.
