Delivery Guidelines

Follow these guidelines when you’re preparing for delivery of your 40 yard dumpster rental:

  • Clear the area: Make sure the location for the dumpster is at least 10.5 feet wide. Remove any cars or other objects blocking your driveway or lot before delivery. The truck will need about 60 feet in a straight line to drop the bin.
  • Check for wires: For delivery, we need 23 feet of vertical clearance to successfully place the container. Check the area above your location for low-hanging wires and tree branches.
  • Be ready: We’ll do our best to place the dumpster in your requested location as long as the area is clear for delivery. If we cannot place the dumpster because the area is blocked, you will incur a trip fee.
  • Pay attention: The 40 yard dumpster can hold a lot of debris, but you must keep to the weight limit on your invoice. Calculate the weight of your debris before filling the container to avoid going over your weight limit.
