Preparing for a dumpster delivery? Budget Dumpster has you covered. The most important step of preparation is to make sure the surrounding area is clear. That includes cars in a driveway, items in the street and wires or trees hanging too low for placement. If anything is the way, it could result in a failed delivery attempt. You can place cones or a similar item down to let the driver know where you’d like the dumpster to be placed. You can also provide sheets of plywood if you’d like to fully protect your driveway. It’s important to know, a dumpster truck backs into driveways and cannot go on neighbor’s properties without prior permission. That’s why it’s critical to clear not only the placement location but the surrounding area, as well.
