Red Rover DumpstersEddie Hager has worked in the tree removal and trimming industry for years. When filling up a chip truck, it’s helpful to have a dumpster on-site. Hager and Charlie Gorman began to notice, however, that finding dumpsters to rent in the Louisville area was a difficult feat.

“It got to a point where it was two to three weeks out to rent a dumpster,” Gorman says. That’s when a new business idea began to percolate – a dumpster rental business.

Hager was on board, so next was coming up with a name for their business, which launched in February of 2022.

“We wanted something with strong marketing that would be remembered,” Hager says. His cousin, Lee Abshire, reminded him of Red Rover, a childhood game they used to play, and the tagline fit perfectly – “Red Rover, Red Rover, bring a dumpster right over!”

And that’s precisely what they do. The goal of the team at Red Rover Dumpsters is to offer same-day delivery. They also offer straightforward pricing, charging a set amount based on the size of the dumpster. For instance, a 10-yard container holding up to one ton rents for $280. A 20-yard container holding up to two tons costs $420. They also have 15-, 30- and 40-yard containers. A client can keep the dumpster on their property for that price for up to 10 days, although customers often don’t want or need the dumpster for that long, and when they’re done, they usually want it hauled away quickly. Renting a dumpster is an efficient way of disposing of junk so call World of Dumpsters today.

“We’re Johnny-on-the-spot to pick it up,” Hager says.

Red Rover DumpstersRed Rover is truly a step above other dumpster rental companies for a number of reasons. Not only do they offer professional, friendly, prompt service with a smile, but they also rent clean, functional, sharp-looking dumpsters.

“We’ve been in your shoes,” Gorman adds. “That’s really all our sales pitch has been, because we understand the importance of punctuality and customer service – and time is money.”

One of their happy clients is Sun Tan City, which gave Red Rover their entire contract, spanning three different states.

“Lately I have had nothing but bad experiences with dumpster companies until I found Red Rover Dumpsters,” says the director of facilities for Glow Brands, which owns Sun Tan City, Planet Fitness and Buff City Soap. “[The team at Red Rover Dumpsters] has excellent communication, on-time delivery, and go above and beyond for our special requests.”

Red Rover’s team has also been a help to the community on more than one occasion. For instance, last summer they responded immediately when a 52-foot trailer spilled over.

“We brought out four dumpsters for emergency cleanup from 10 p.m. until 7 a.m.,” Gorman says.

Many area builders also use Red Rover Dumpsters because they are pleased with the top-notch service they receive.

“We provide white-glove, concierge, VIP service from the minute you call us to the minute we pick it up,” Hager says.

The Red Rover team is looking to eventually franchise across the country. For now, they are focused on providing a stellar experience for their Louisville-area customers. For more info call 502-977-9502 or visit them online at
