Prepare for Delivery and Pickup

When you call to order a dumpster, we ask for detailed placement instructions so we can drop off the container in a convenient location. To make the process go smoothly, and so you don’t have to be present for delivery or pickup, complete the following tasks:

Pick a Spot:

Select a location for your dumpster. Remember that you’ll need a permit from the city to have the container placed on the street.

Clear the Area:

The truck will need about 60 feet of space to approach and 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise and place the bin.

Avoid Overflowing Debris:

An overloaded dumpster is a safety hazard, so make sure all of your materials are inside, or you'll be charged a fee. If it's more than 10 tons, we can't haul it away.

Schedule Pickup:

Don’t forget to schedule a pickup for your dumpster on or before the last day of your rental period.
