Before Ordering Your Dumpster Rental
Although driveway damage is unlikely, please be aware of the possibility of damage caused by the weight of the dumpster and the contents placed in the dumpster.
Watch the process of a dumpster delivery below, and find out our tips for keeping your driveway protected.
Prevent Scratching & Cracks
We recommend that you place 4′ x 8′ sheets or 2″ x 4″ plywood on your driveway where the dumpster will be placed. The wood will prevent the dumpster from scratching or cracking the driveway. Please take the proper precautions to protect your driveway!
Dumpster permits are typically only required when placing a dumpster on public property such as a street, easement, or sidewalk.
Please contact your local township office or public works department to determine exact permit requirements for your specific situation. Permit requirements can vary within the same town based on placement specifics!
Please check with your local municipality. Permits are often required for dumpsters.
It is recommended to allow 4’ of clearance on all sides of the dumpster to assure adequate clearance. Please refer to our Dumpster Selection Guide for dumpster dimensions.
Yes, your dumpster will have a hinged back door that will swing open.
An empty dumpster weighs between 3,500 lbs. (10 yard dumpster) and 6,500 lbs. (40 yard dumpster). The weight of the dumpster itself does not affect pricing. Rather, ONLY THE WEIGHT OF THE MATERIALS PLACED IN THE DUMPSTER AFFECTS PRICING.
No, our roll-off dumpster rentals do not include any type of cover or lid. We highly recommend using a tarp secured with bungee cords to cover the dumpster to help keep out unnecessary weight from precipitation and unwanted debris from nearby residents.
The price of a dumpster rental includes a one-time delivery and removal for the selected roll off dumpster, a disposal weight allowance, and a stated rental period. All waste will be disposed of in a fully approved and licensed disposal facility.
Department of Transportation regulations limit the weight of any roll off dumpster to approximately 15 tons. Certain materials such as concrete, dirt, brick, drywall, roofing shingles, tree trunks, etc. can be very heavy. Before placing any heavy materials in your roll off dumpster, please review the applicable additional weight charges per the terms and conditions of your agreement and contact us at 888-885-2048 for guidance. Under no conditions should a roll off dumpster be loaded above the fill line, even with light material.
Yes, if the weight of the materials in your dumpster exceeds the included weight quoted in your order confirmation, you will be charged for the additional weight at the specified tonnage rate. We are charged by weight at the disposal facility and we pass along this charge accordingly.
The truck drives onto a scale at the disposal facility where an initial weight is recorded (gross weight). The truck then empties the contents of the dumpster. Next, the truck drives onto a second scale that records the weight of the truck and the empty dumpster (tare weight). The difference between the first and second weights (gross – tare) is the weight of the debris in the dumpster. The scales are regulated by state bureaus of weights and measures.
Mattresses, large/bulky electronic waste items, tires, and items containing freon may incur a per-item fee at the disposal facility. Any per-item fee(s) will be passed on to the customer.
Hazardous waste, dirt, industrial waste, chemical products, oil filters, herbicides, pesticides, radioactive material, solvents, paint (except completely dried latex paint cans, no liquids), other flammable liquids, aerosol cans, propane tanks, motor oil, transmission oil, lubricating/hydraulic oil, oil filters, contaminated oils (mixed with solvents, gasoline, etc.), antifreeze, appliances, petroleum contaminated soil/lead paint chips, tires, batteries, computers, monitors, televisions, microwaves, fluorescent tubes, railroad ties, medical waste, asbestos, animals, barrels, all liquids.
Nothing can be sticking out of the top of the roll off dumpster.
Additional requirements may apply based upon locality. Liability for appropriate waste remains with the customer.
