    Just picking y'all's brains. Always looking for ways to keep cash flowing during the slow mowing months.
    Found this setup 4sale for gooseneck 14k pnd roll off/dumpster trailer & 3x 12yds containers.
    $9k for the setup.

    Figure these would be good to market to flooring & cabinet remodelers. Home builders doing renovations and even homeowners.

    Any thoughts?

    Looks like a nifty setup. Not sure about your area, but here the market is flooded with bin and mini bin companies.

    It can be. depends on how much your area is flooded with dumpster market. Residential will love them because they are lightweight & small. Wont take up the whole driveway either. If you buy it, get a flatdeck made for it. You can move your skidsteer, deliver sand bags, haul your bark bags and set them done on the ground to make easier. $9000.00 is a good price, trailer alone is $12000.00 new. Boxes are around $3000.00 new.

    I would buy it just for myself at that price. Especially since you have he space for it. Then sell the big dump trailer if you want

    I think there is a market for smaller cans. You will be competing with the small dump trucks, dump trailers and Waste Management's "Bagster" but there doesn't seem to be a shortage of garbage. You could offer one to people for spring cleanup. If you had one sitting around, you could drop it for scrap iron, etc.
    I think the banks/forecloser departments could put you in touch with contractors who are working for them doing make-ready. I just talked to a contractor who supposedly has a lot of homes to do in a day but he was telling me that by the time they load up a trailer with junk and go dump it, they barely have time to get to the second house and they are supposed to hit 3 a day for the bank.
    He was telling me that he needs to dispose of yard clippings, light trimming, and whatever junk the renters or owners left behind... I can see an opportunity there.

    Great for condo renovations!

    I like the idea for leaf cleanup. Rent the rig to landscapers with a tarp lid. $$$

    A horse farm that I landscaped for used one for cleaning out the barns, manure and bedding.
