2. Prepare for Delivery

3. Fill Your Container

Unlatch the easy-to-open door to get started. For home cleanouts, you can load dining room sets, old appliances and other household junk without waiting for bulk pickup day. Or fill the bin with outdated sinks, countertops and remodeling debris if you’re working through a renovation.

How to Load Your Home Dumpster:
  • Place bulky items in first.
  • Remember the weight limit.
  • Break down boxes or large materials.
  • Do not toss prohibited items like wet paint.

4. Schedule Pickup

You can keep your container for a day, a weekend or longer - just let us know. Our rental periods typically last up to 10 days so you have plenty of time to work. When you're ready for pickup, get in touch before the last day of your agreement and we'll schedule removal.

Ways to Streamline Pickup:
  • Make sure debris is not overflowing.
  • Close and secure the dumpster door.
  • Unlock gates or fences on pickup day.
  • Keep the area clear of equipment and obstacles.

Helpful Guidelines to Avoid Extra Costs

Don’t Let Anyone Else Use the Dumpster

Use signs or cover your bin to keep outsiders from tossing trash in your container. Their debris could push your dumpster over the weight limit or include a prohibited item.
