    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

    Dumpster.com 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.

    The dumper was there when I got home and it was in the right place. Like that I wasn't charged any more money because they couldn't get here on the pick up date.

    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.

Dumpster Permits

Know When You Need a Permit for Your Roll Off Dumpster

Do you need a permit for the dumpster you’re renting? The answer depends on where you plan to place your container. A residential driveway, which is the most common location, doesn’t typically require a permit.

But what happens when your driveway isn’t an option? To help keep your project on track, we compiled some basic information about dumpster permits in case you need one for your rental.

Can You Put a Dumpster in the Street? 

Many construction or renovation projects require a dumpster to be placed in a location other than a residential driveway. A permit allows you to place your container in a public space and is commonly required for these locations:

  • Residential streets
  • Sidewalks or walkways
  • Shopping plazas, marketplaces or malls
  • Town squares
  • Parks, public greens or piers
  • Convention centers

If you’re unsure whether you need a dumpster permit for your preferred placement, give us a call and our knowledgeable staff will help you figure out what you need before you place your order.

How to Get a Permit for a Dumpster

Knowing the steps to get a dumpster permit will help you plan ahead and keep your project on schedule:

  1. Call your city’s building or public works department to ask about the process for getting a dumpster permit. 
  2. In some cases, you can find the permit request form on your city’s website. 
  3. Fill out and submit the application form, and wait for it to be processed. 
  4. Most applications are approved within 24 hours, but keep in mind that processing times can take up to two weeks in some cities. 

Information You’ll Need to Request a Dumpster Permit

To streamline the permit process, have the following information on hand:

  • Dumpster rental company’s name and phone number
  • Property owner or applicant’s name, address and phone number
  • Start and end dates of your rental period
  • Exact address and/or detailed description of placement location
  • Dumpster dimensions 

Be sure to mention any potential obstructions in your desired placement area, including:

  • Bus stops
  • Parking meters
  • Loading zones
  • Car-share spaces
  • Taxi or valet stands

Common Rules and Regulations to Know

  • Your city may require you to pay a fee for your dumpster permit.
  • Your permit request may be denied if another permit has already been issued for the same location.
  • Your dumpster must be parked against the curb to allow traffic to pass.
  • Your dumpster cannot block driveways, stop signs or fire hydrants.
  • Your dumpster must be placed at least 20 feet away from street corners.
  • You must place reflective tape and/or cones around the dumpster to make it visible to traffic.
  • If placing outside of your home, contact your HOA to find out if there are any local restrictions.
  • Some cities prohibit dumpsters from being placed in alleyways.
