Am I allowed to rent a dumpster at my house or apartment?
Renting a dumpster and having it on-site at a single-family home is usually possible, but it’s always best to do your homework. Our team can help you confirm if you need a permit or advise if you’ll need permission from your HOA based on your address. We can also help you plan where to safely place the dumpster in case blocking shared driveways or utilities is a factor in the decision process.
How much does it cost to rent a dumpster?
Pricing for dumpsters varies based on your location and the size of your dumpster container.
Our team strives to provide competitive upfront pricing, and will take factors including your address, and the expected weight and volume of your refuse into account. Factors also include how long you plan to keep the dumpster, and how many times it will need to be removed and replaced over the duration of your project.
How long can I keep the dumpster?
Weekly and monthly flat-rate dumpster rentals are available to suit your needs. If you fill up your dumpster earlier than expected or need to extend your dumpster rental period, get in touch with our team so we can help coordinate based on your needs.
Where should I put my dumpster?
Dumpsters are usually placed on solid, flat surfaces. They should not be stored on uneven ground or soft soil, or in a spot that poses a threat to underground utilities or septic tanks. It’s usually most convenient for home projects to have the dumpster placed alongside the house close to the door, or in the driveway. Our vehicles must be able to access the dumpster easily for drop-off and pick-up.
If you need to put your dumpster in the street, be sure to research any laws and guidelines based on your municipality.
What items can you put in a dumpster rental?
Dumpsters can accommodate non-hazardous waste, debris, and general junk.
Items that fall into these categories:
- Yard waste (including branches and leaves
- Furniture (wooden, metal, or PVC)
- Hardware and fixtures (such as lights and sinks)
- Roofing shingles and construction debris
- Carpeting or flooring
It’s always best to discuss the types of items that you’re planning to dispose of before you rent a dumpster, so that our team can help you scope size, and forewarn you of anything that may not be accepted at the landfill.
What cannot be discarded in a dumpster?
Customers commonly ask, “What can I not throw away?”
Never add hazardous or flammable items to a dumpster. That includes batteries, paint cans or lacquer containers, oil or oil-soaked rags, refrigerators, hot water tanks, tires, or medical waste.
If you’re disposing of heavy, solid items such as large volumes of dirt, gravel, bricks, or concrete, let us know! We can arrange the best size container to avoid overage charges.
