Understanding Your Commercial Dumpster Bill: Section by Section

True to our promise of offering a simple and straightforward waste removal service, invoices for commercial dumpster services are clear and easy to read. Here are the main sections to look at on your dumpster bill. 

Order Type

This identifies if you are being billed for a permanent or temporary dumpster rental.

Payment Status

This will indicate if your invoice is paid in full, or if you have a balance due. Any open charges will be listed at the bottom of the bill under “Payments and Balance”. 

Scheduled Service Day

This is the day of the week that your dumpster will be serviced. Depending on your business’s location, you may be able to choose the day of the week. 

Invoice & Delivery Date

The invoice date is the day when you are invoiced, and the delivery date is the scheduled day for your dumpster to be delivered. It’s important to note that the delivery date is when your credit card payment will be processed each month for the ongoing dumpster service.

Customer Information, Billing and Delivery Address

This includes contact information, in addition to the billing and delivery address. Please double check each invoice to make sure that the correct information is provided, if for any reason the information is incorrect, contact a customer service representative to update it.

Service Frequency and Terms

This area will detail how often your dumpster will be emptied, either weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, and the dumpster size.

Potential Extra Fees on Your Permanent Dumpster Bill

Additional line items that may appear on your monthly bill include:

Extra Pickup

If you held an event and needed to schedule a pickup outside of the normal waste removal schedule, you will see a line item added to your monthly bill to reflect the charge.

Overfilled Dumpster

The door on the dumpster needs to be closed when it is picked up. Overfilling the dumpster can lead to an additional cost which will be reflected on your front load dumpster bill.

Prohibited Item Fine

If any prohibited waste is found during the processing of debris, additional costs will be added to your bill. 

Trip Fee

There will be a trip fee added to your dumpster bill if the placement location is inaccessible the day of the scheduled delivery.
