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 that you are being billed for a permanent 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. While the delivery fee will be processed around the time of your dumpster delivery, your credit card will be charged on the first day of the following month.

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 your dedicated account manager to update it.
