Dumpster Features

What size dumpster should I rent?

The right dumpster size for your project depends on the type and amount of debris you’re throwing away. Call us up and describe your project, and we’ll be happy to recommend the right size dumpster.

Is there a weight limit on my dumpster?

Yes, each container has a designated weight limit, however usually only heavy construction debris goes over that, typically normal household trash does not.

Is there anything I can’t put in my dumpster?

Avoid putting in materials you did not list – for instance if you said household trash and debris, don’t put in concrete. Otherwise, you can never put in any hazardous waste, liquids, paint, tires, propane tanks, large appliances. If you do need to dispose of these items, ask us at the time you call and we can help you. There are separate costs for disposal of some of these items.

Do your rental dumpsters have doors?

Yes. The whole back opens up to about 8 inches of the ground, allowing you to easily walk your debris in.

Is there a right way to load my dumpster?

Yes. Make sure you evenly distribute the weight, and do not load it past the top of the container.

Do I need a permit for my dumpster?

Not unless you belong to a Homeowner’s Association (HOA) that requires it.
