How to Prepare for Delivery and Pickup for a 20 Cubic Yard Dumpster

When you order a 20 yard dumpster, keep in mind that you'll need to provide placement instructions for our team. You won't need to be onsite during delivery or pickup, but keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Clear a Space: Select a location for your dumpster. Remember that you'll need a permit from the city to have the dumpster placed on the street.
  • Remove Obstacles: Prep the area where you want the dumpster to be placed. The truck will require about 60 feet of space to approach and about 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise and place the dumpster. 
  • Call for Removal:  Don't forget to call to schedule pickup for your dumpster on or before the last day of your rental period. 

During drop off and pickup of the dumpster, double check nothing is blocking the truck's access to that location. Common obstacles include:

  • Parked cars
  • Locked gates
  • Low-hanging tree branches
  • Wires and cables
  • Garbage cans blocking the driveway apron

Once your order is completed over the phone, our team will send you an email with additional details, including a list of prohibited items and a copy of your invoice.
