Before we drop off your 30 yard dumpster, prepare the delivery spot with these four steps:
Your driveway must be 60 feet long to fit a 30 yard dumpster rental. Move your cars to the street or garage and open any entry gates to your property before we get there.
Our driver needs 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise your dumpster and place it correctly. Make sure the drop-off location is clear of low-hanging wires and branches.
We schedule deliveries around the most fuel-efficient routes, so your dumpster can arrive at any point during the day. While you don’t need to be present for drop-off, you should prepare the area ahead of time.
Take note of your weight limit and stay within it. If you overfill your dumpster or throw away prohibited items, you’ll incur additional fees.
You can never throw paint, asbestos, household chemicals and other hazardous waste in a dumpster. These materials are dangerous to touch and pose a safety concern in landfills. Please note that we accept appliances and mattresses in some areas, but you may incur additional fees due to local mandates. If you have questions about anything our 30 yard dumpster rentals can’t haul away, give us a call.
Choose an open and accessible spot for your 30 yard dumpster rental. For residential projects, your driveway is usually the most convenient location. If you’re working on a construction site, keep the dumpster in a designated waste or recycling area. We can also place your container on the street in front of or adjacent to your property, but you may need a permit from the city in advance. Contact our team for additional help with your roll off dumpster placement.
