Delivery and Pickup Tips
When you order a 15 yard dumpster, we’ll ask for detailed delivery instructions so we can place the container in a convenient location, even if you can’t be there. To ensure smooth drop-off and pickup, stick to the following guidelines.
Clear about 60 feet of space for the delivery truck to back in. We also need about 23 feet of height and 11 feet of width to ensure seamless delivery.
Ensure that vehicles, tree branches and wires aren't blocking the placement area. Also, unlock any gates or provide access codes.
Make sure not to overfill the dumpster. If debris sticks out the top, it can't safely be transported to the landfill and you will be charged a trip fee.
Contact our team before the end of your rental period to schedule removal. You can schedule a pickup online.
Remember to Ask About Permits
If you need to place the dumpster in a public right-of-way like the street, you’ll most likely need a permit approved by your local government. If possible, we'll take care of the permit for you and add the cost to your bundled price. However, most cities require the homeowner or contactor to apply for permits.
When you call, we’ll let you know if you need a permit and whether or not we can handle it for you.
