Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do before my dumpster rental arrives?

After your roll off dumpster delivery is scheduled, make sure the drop-off area is clear of any obstacles. If you plan on keeping the container in your driveway, move your cars into the street or park them in your garage. Open any entry gates to your property as well, so our trucks can get through. On construction sites, clear the placement location of equipment and debris. For more delivery tips and dumpster rental guidelines, give us a call.

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 it heavier than normal. 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 drape a tarp over your dumpster and secure it with bungee cords or tie-down straps. To better prepare for your dumpster rental and heavy rain, call us.

How It Works

1. Choose a size and delivery spot. We require 60 feet of space in a straight line and 23 feet of vertical clearance.
2. Prepare for delivery. Remove any vehicles, materials or low-hanging obstacles to ensure we can deliver your dumpster and to avoid a trip fee.
3. Fill up your dumpster. Remember to keep your included weight limit in mind to prevent overage fees.
4. Schedule your pickup. To ensure pickup and avoid a trip fee, your dumpster must be accessible and only contain approved debris piled no higher than the sidewalls.
