Delivery Guidelines

Follow these guidelines when you’re preparing for delivery of your 30 yard dumpster rental:

  • Clear the way: The dumpster delivery truck requires 60 feet of space in a straight line to deliver the container. The area must be at least 10.5 feet wide and be clear of any cars or other objects before delivery.
  • Look up: The delivery truck needs 23 feet of vertical clearance to successfully place the container. Check for low-hanging wires or tree branches above your drop spot.
  • Be prepared: We’ll do our very best to place your dumpster in the requested location, as long as it can be done safely and the area has been prepared in advance.
  • Keep track: A 30 yard dumpster cannot hold a limitless amount of debris. Pay attention to the amount and weight of the debris you put inside the container to avoid going over your weight limit.
