How to Plan for Delivery and Pickup

When you rent a 40 yard dumpster, we’ll ask you for specific placement instructions so you don’t have to be present for delivery or pickup. Keep the following guidelines in mind as you prepare for service.

Designate a Drop-Off Area:

Decide on a convenient placement location with one of our helpful team members when you set up your rental.

Clear the Spot:

To successfully place a 40 yard roll off dumpster, we’ll need about 60 feet of space leading up to the drop off area and 23 feet of overhead clearance.

Don't Overload It:

An overflowing dumpster is unsafe for us to haul away and will likely exceed the weight limit, resulting in extra costs. If it's more than 10 tons, we won't be able to remove it.

Schedule Bin Removal:

For smooth delivery and pickup, make sure the area surrounding your container won’t be blocked by parked cars, locked gates or other obstacles.
