Before we drop off your 20 yard dumpster, prepare the delivery area with these four steps:
Your driveway must be 60 feet long to fit a 20 yard dumpster rental. Move your cars to the street or garage and clear any potential obstacles before we get there.
For a successful dumpster delivery, our driver needs 25-30 feet of vertical clearance. Make sure the drop-off location is free of low-hanging wires and branches.
We schedule deliveries around the most fuel-efficient routes, so your 20 yard dumpster can arrive at any point during the day. Prepare the area the night before your delivery date.
Take note of your dumpster’s weight limit and stay within it. If you overload your dumpster or throw away prohibited items, you’ll incur additional fees.
You can throw drywall, home clutter, yard waste and more in a 20 yard dumpster. We also accept appliances and mattresses in some areas, but you may incur additional fees due to local mandates. These materials take longer for landfills and transfer stations to process, making their disposal more expensive. For safety reasons, we can never haul away paint, asbestos, tires and other hazardous waste. Not only are these items dangerous to touch, but may damage your dumpster rental as well. If you have questions about the debris you’re tossing, contact our team.
We recommend loading your large and heavy items first, walking them into your dumpster through the swinging door. Spread these materials apart to distribute their weight evenly and efficiently use space in your container. Then, you can toss small and light objects over the edges. Before we arrive for pickup, make sure your debris is below or level with the dumpster walls. Need help filling your 20 cubic yard dumpster? Give us a call.
