    Needed a dumpster for my kitchen renovation. Called on a Tuesday had it delivered Thursday. Filled it in 2 days, called Monday, it was gone Tuesday morning. I would say you can't beat that kind of service.

    • Suzanne Vickory staff were friendly and efficient. Delivery and pick up were prompt. We had two dumpsters delivered. The first was in very poor condition and probably frightened the neighbors. But it got the job done. The second appeared to be brand new and was great advertising for the company’s green Program, which I appreciate. Thank you.

    I contacted Rodger about a dumpster to clean out my basement . He was very helpful in helping me determine the right size and informing me as to what should not be put in it and what was a extra charge. The driver was very professional and careful as to where he placed the dumpster. You are the best will recommend you to others

Dumpster Fees and How to Avoid Them

Understanding Extra Charges on Dumpster Rentals

At, the rental price for your dumpster is a flat-rate determined by your location, weight limit, debris type and dumpster size. If you follow your rental terms, what you're quoted is what you'll pay. However, if you overload your dumpster and go over the weight limit outlined in the terms, you may end up with additional dumpster fees. 

To help you stay on budget, we've outlined several common extra charges below, along with tips on how to avoid them.

Give us a call if you have any additional questions about the different types of dumpster fees or pricing. Understanding how to avoid extra charges on a dumpster rental will help you keep your project operating within your budget.

Common Dumpster Rental Fees

Trip Fee

What is a trip fee?

We charge a trip fee if the truck driver cannot drop off or pick up your dumpster due to obstacles that interfere with loading or unloading. 

For example, the delivery truck needs 18 feet of vertical clearance to drop off a dumpster. If there are low-hanging tree branches over your drop spot that prevent the driver from unloading the container, you may be charged a trip fee. 

Tips to avoid a trip fee:

Choose a placement area that is free of any permanent obstacles, and keep the location clear during the time window for delivery or pickup. 

  • Remove low-hanging tree branches.
  • Check to ensure there are no low-hanging wires over the delivery area.
  • Familiarize yourself with dumpster dimensions to clear enough space.
  • No vehicles in the driveway or blocking access from the street.

Hazardous Waste Disposal Fee

What is a hazardous waste disposal fee?

We can't accept hazardous waste and other prohibited items in our dumpsters because they require special disposal. If you put these items in your container, you may be charged a fee to cover the cost of proper disposal. 

Prohibited Items
  • Adhesives
  • Asbestos
  • Batteries
  • Contaminated Absorbents and Soils
  • Food Waste
  • Fuel
  • Industrial Drums
  • Infectious Waste
  • Ink and Resins
  • Oils
  • Paints and Lacquers
  • Railroad Ties
  • Refrigerators and Air Conditioners
  • Tires
  • Hot Water Tanks



How to avoid an extra disposal fee:

Do not dispose of prohibited items in your dumpster. If you have a question about a specific item that isn't on our list, call our helpful service team at 844-444-DUMP before tossing it in the dumpster. 

*Please note that specific items may be prohibited because your dumpster will go to a recycling facility for sorting.

What should you do with hazardous waste?

If you need to dispose of items classified as hazardous waste, contact your local waste management department to see if there are drop-off sites or scheduled pickup dates for your area. Here are some common options for proper trash disposal:

  • Mail-In Kits: Certain organizations can send you a mail-in kit for your waste. You will need to fill out a form online to specify what you will be disposing of and your location. 
  • Recycling: Drop-off sites and retail stores often host recycling programs for batteries, cell phones, tires and other prohibited materials you cannot throw in a dumpster. Auto-parts stores and repair shops may accept used car oil or antifreeze for recycling. 
  • Request Hazardous Waste Pickup: If there are no local drop-off sites in your area, you can often schedule a pickup through your waste service. 

Overage Fee

What is an overage fee?

Landfills charge a dumpster hauler by the weight of the debris in the dumpster. We include a specific weight limit in our flat-rate dumpster rental prices, and if you exceed that number, you may be charged a prorated overage fee for each ton over the weight limit. 

How to estimate what your debris weighs:

The best way to avoid an overage fee is to accurately scope your project and order the correct dumpster size. Use our dumpster weight calculators to estimate how much your debris will weigh. Our calculators cover common materials including:

  • Concrete and Asphalt
  • Drywall
  • Shingles

Unsure which size to order? Call our team with any questions or concerns. We're here to help you choose the right dumpster for your project. 

Overloading Fee

What is an overloaded dumpster?

If a dumpster is so full that materials are piled higher than the walls or are hanging over the sides, then it is considered overloaded. Drivers can't legally transport overloaded dumpsters on the road, so if you put too much in your container, you may be charged an extra fee for driver delay and container dig-out. 

It is also illegal for a driver to transport a load weighing more than ten tons on the road. If the debris in your dumpster is so heavy that it cannot be removed, you may be charged a trip fee (see above).

How to load your dumpster properly:
  1. Place all bulky items at the bottom of the dumpster. Remember you can use the dumpster door for easy loading!
  2. Load the dumpster evenly. This will help keep the dumpster from shifting or tipping over during transit. 
  3. Fill in any gaps as you start to load up the container.
  4. Break down and flatten items whenever possible so they take up less space.
  5. Be conscious of the dumpster's weight limit. If you dumpster is filling up faster than you thought, you can schedule an empty-and-return-service.

Late Fee

When do late fees apply?

Late fees generally apply each day that you keep your dumpster after your rental period ends. Remember that we will not pick up your dumpster until you call us to schedule removal. Be sure to call on or before the last day of your rental period. 

How to schedule pickup and avoid a late fee:

Once you're done using the dumpster, call our team at 844-444-DUMP to schedule a pickup. As long as you call for removal on or before the last day of your rental agreement, you will not be charged a late fee. 

Give us a call if you have any other questions about our pricing or the different types of dumpster fees. Understanding how to avoid extra charges on a dumpster rental will help you avoid surprises on your bill.
