Plan for Delivery and Pickup

When you set up a 15 yard dumpster rental, we’ll ask for detailed delivery instructions so we can place the container in a convenient location for you, even if you can’t be there. To ensure a smooth drop off and pickup, stick to the following guidelines.

Pick a Location:

Clear about 60 feet of space for the delivery truck. If you plan to place the dumpster in the street, you may need to get a permit first.

Remove Obstacles:

The truck needs at least 23 feet of vertical clearance to unload and remove the container. Also, make sure there are no locked gates, cars or other obstacles blocking the area.

Don't Overload It:

Make sure not to overfill the container. If debris is sticking out the top of the roll off, it cannot safely be transported to the landfill and you will be charged a fee.

Schedule Pickup:

Don’t forget to contact our team before the end of your rental period to request a pickup on or before the last day of your term to avoid additional fees.
