Once you’ve ordered your 10 yard dumpster, get the drop-off area ready for delivery day by following these four steps:
To accommodate a 10 yard dumpster rental, your driveway must be at least 60 feet long. You should also move your cars to the street and open any entry gates to your property before we get there.
Our driver needs 23-25 feet of vertical clearance to raise your dumpster and place it correctly. For this reason, choose a drop-off location that’s free of low-hanging wires and branches.
Your dumpster can arrive at any point during the day. We schedule drop-offs around the most fuel-efficient routes, so it’s important to prepare ahead of time. That said, you don’t need to be present when the bin arrives.
Take note of your 10 yard dumpster’s weight limit and be careful not to overload it. If you exceed your weight limit or throw prohibited items in the bin, you’ll incur additional fees.
A 10 yard dumpster is the smallest size you can rent from us. We recommend using our small dumpster rentals for decluttering projects and minor home improvements. If you’re throwing away more than 1-2 tons of debris, you’ll probably need a bigger size. See which dumpster rental is right for your project.
Our 10 yard dumpster rentals can haul away home clutter, drywall, yard waste and more. We also accept appliances and mattresses in certain areas, but you may incur additional fees for these items due to local mandates. These materials take longer for landfills and transfer stations to process, making their disposal more expensive. Please note that you can never use our 10 yard dumpsters to get rid of oil, paint, asbestos and other hazardous waste for safety reasons. If you have questions about prohibited items or the debris you’re tossing, contact our team.
