Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do before my dumpster rental arrives?

Once you've scheduled your roll off dumpster delivery, make sure the placement location is clear of any obstacles. If you want to keep 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. Planning to have your roll off dumpster in the street? Check with the city of Ames for permitting information first. Contact our team if you need help preparing for drop-off.

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

Heavy rain can fill your roll off container with standing water and saturate your debris, making it heavier than normal. Since landfills charge disposal fees by the ton, exceeding your set weight limit will result in additional per-ton charges. The easiest way to prevent this is to drape a tarp over your bin and secure it with bungee cords or tie-down straps. To better prepare your roll off dumpster for inclement weather, give us a call.

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.
