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, usually doesn’t require a permit.
But what happens when your driveway isn’t an option? If you plan to place your dumpster in a public area, you will most likely need a permit. Keep in mind that dumpster permit regulations vary from city to city. Some communities require a permit if the dumpster will be visible to passersby, while others only enforce permits if the container will be on public property. To help keep your project on track, we gathered some basic information about dumpster permits in case you need one for your rental.
The answer is yes - in most cases. For many construction or renovation projects, placing a dumpster in a residential driveway isn’t an option. A permit allows you to place your container on the street or in another public space.
If you’re unsure whether you need a dumpster permit for your preferred placement, give us a call and we’ll help you figure out what you need before you place your order.

Before you call, gather the details of your project. Also, keep your dumpster’s dimensions in mind to ensure it won’t obstruct any property in your desired placement area. Having this information ready to go will make it easy to get your dumpster permit.
The fee often falls between $10 and $100 per week, but can be more depending on your area. The cost of a dumpster permit varies by city and the amount of time the container will be in your desired location.
