What Do Our Customers Think?
I ordered a 30 yd dumpster
I ordered a 30 yd dumpster. It was needed to clear out things in a house. The dumpster was delivered the day it was requested. I would definitely recommend this company.
The Big Dumpster
The dumpster arrived on time and was easy to access. The driver placed it exactly where I wanted it so we could still get in and out of our garage. They also picked it up in a timely manner. And, we filled the 22 foot long dumpster up to capacity! My only complaint was that their bookkeeping got messed up and they started to pick it up too early. After a few phone calls, I finally got that straightened out.
Scheduling a project with Dumpsters.com couldn't be easier! From the personable service from Eric (our rep) - to the delivery and pickups - everything was a smooth as you could want. The pricing was fair and the service was entirely hands-off. I would highly recommend Dumpsters.com for any project that requires dumpster services. Would definitely use them again.

How soon can I get a dumpster delivered?

Why do dumpster prices vary?
Our dumpster prices are based on several factors which can cause them to fluctuate, including:
Location: Local fuel costs, area disposal fees and regional regulations around sorting and recycling can affect pricing.
Debris Type: Disposal costs also vary based on what you’re throwing out and the landfills or processing facilities in your area.
Availability: Container availability varies throughout the year due to demand, which may cause prices to change.
Rental Period: Rental periods are generally 7-10 days, but this can vary by location. If you need to hang on to your container longer, let us know and you’ll receive a low daily rate for each additional day.
Weight: Though landfill charges are usually based on total weight, our bundled rates include a set weight limit for your rental, so you won’t need to know exactly how heavy your trash is when you place your order.
Facility Fees: Disposal facilities can charge a variety of extra costs, from standard taxes to other fees assessed by the landfill.
Is any debris prohibited in Chicago?
Flammable, toxic and hazardous waste are always prohibited from the landfill for safety reasons. However, local regulations may call for additional restrictions. We'll go over all prohibited items when you call.
However, we do offer various roll off and commercial dumpsters for a variety of debris types, including:
Where does dumpster trash go?
Much of the trash disposed of in Chicago is taken to the River Bend Prairie Landfill, located at 801 East 138th Street.
Do I need any permits to rent a dumpster?
A permit is usually required if you want to place the container in a public right-of-way, such as the street or sidewalk. Contact the city of Chicago for more information.
How do I load my dumpster?
When loading a dumpster, ensure all debris is placed inside the container. Do not leave anything hanging over the sides or sticking over the top of the dumpster. This could delay your waste pick-up because drivers cannot haul overloaded dumpsters.
How am I invoiced for my dumpster?
We'll email you or invoice once you've placed an order. When you set up your dumpster rental, your upfront cost includes delivery, pickup, disposal, local taxes and a covered weight limit. If your container exceeds the allotted tonnage or you need to extend your rental period, you may be charged additional fees. You’ll receive an invoice via email notifying you of the amount of the charge and the reason.
