Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do before my dumpster rental arrives?

After you've scheduled your roll off dumpster delivery, you'll need to make sure the drop-off area is clear of any obstacles. If you plan on keeping the container in your driveway, move any vehicles to your garage or the street and make sure all gates are open. For construction sites, simply keep the spot where we're dropping off the bin clear of any equipment or debris. For more information about our Ames dumpster rental services, call 515-393-4536 today.

Do I need to cover my roll off dumpster if it rains?

Heavy rain can fill your dumpster with standing water and saturate your debris, making the bin heavier than normal. And since landfills charge disposal fees by the ton, exceeding your container’s maximum weight limit will result in additional per-ton charges. The easiest way to prevent this is to throw a tarp over the top of your dumpster to cover it. You can secure your tarp using bungee cords so the wind doesn't blow it away. If you have additional questions about weight limits or other dumpster rental guidelines, call our team at 515-393-4536 for more information.
