Delivery Guidelines

Once you’ve ordered your 20 yard dumpster rental, keep these tips in mind to ensure a smooth delivery:

  • Leave room: We’ll need about 60 feet (in length) in your driveway to drop off the dumpster and about 10.5 feet of width. Make sure cars and other obstacles are removed from the drop-off spot prior to delivery.
  • Look up: The truck will also need 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise the dumpster and roll it off. Choose a delivery spot that’s clear of low-hanging wires and branches.
  • Go about your day: You do not need to be home for your dumpster’s delivery. Keep in mind that dumpster delivery routes are based on fuel-efficiency, so your dumpster can arrive at any time throughout the day.
  • Avoid overloading: As you work and fill your dumpster, remember your approved materials and the bin’s weight limit.
