Important Factors to Consider When Selecting a Dumpster Size

  1. Make sure the dumpster will fit on your property.
    You're ordering a dumpster with a specific volume, but the outer dimensions of the container can vary depending on your location. Please keep in mind that there has to be enough space to accommodate the dumpster and for the truck to deliver and service it. 
  2. Order the correct dumpster for your waste.
    Specific dumpsters can only accept construction material, while others are designated for household waste. Putting household or organic waste in a construction dumpster can result in additional fees and charges. 
  3. Check your city's permit requirements. 
    Our Customer Service Specialists can help you determine if you need a permit to place your dumpster on public property, such as the street.
  4. Ask questions to ensure you have accurately scoped your project.
    Use our dumpster weight calculators to estimate the right size to handle waste from your demolition project. When selecting a dumpster for your business, talk with one of our representatives to discuss your industry, number of employees, square feet of your space and other important factors. Ordering the right dumpster size helps you avoid overage charges from exceeding the container weight limit.
