Need to know how to open a dumpster door? Budget Dumpster has you covered. The first step is to grab ahold of the dumpster's safety latch or pin and if necessary, move it over and then up. It should end up looking something like this. You'll then want to remove the safety chain from its current position and place it on the ground out of the way. Finally, take one hand and grab the dumpster's door while the other lifts up on the lever. You'll notice the door will start to open. Gently lower the lever and then push the door open. That's all it takes. You can now begin to fill up your dumpster.
