Any additional fees during the rental period, including overweight fees, extra days, or additional fee items are billed after the rental is dumped, to the card that was used at the time of ordering.
If you exceed your weight allowance you will be charged $0.0975 per pound ($195/ton) over. This fee is charged to the card used to pay the original order invoice. You will receive an additional invoice showing the weight overage, and dollar amount charged.
Select a location for the dumpster that is convenient for loading debris and easily accessible for the driver during drop-off and pick-up, ensuring no obstructions. Optimal choices include hard, level surfaces like asphalt driveways or concrete slabs. Keep in mind that the dumpster door requires 8 feet of space behind it to swing open fully. If a driveway isn't an option, be cautious of potential damage to grass, as dumpsters and delivery trucks are heavy and can sink into soft or wet ground. Additionally, consider overhead power and communication lines, as they can potentially obstruct the placement of the dumpster and pose safety hazards while loading and unloading. It's best to choose a spot that isn't directly underneath such lines to avoid any complications or risks during the rental period.
Our safety policy strictly prohibits any movement, pushing, lifting, pulling, or alteration of the dumpster's position once it's placed for any reason. Violators will be subject to a $1,000 fine. If you require relocation of your dumpster(s), please contact us.
Our dumpsters can handle most types of waste including household junk, yard waste, stumps, construction and demolition debris. However, hazardous wastes, oil, pressurized tanks, asbestos, and chemicals are not allowed due to safety and environmental regulations. A quick reference guide will be provided for you at the time of drop off, and is available here.
Yes. We are able to accommodate projects that necessitate multiple dumpsters. Frequently, you can save time and money on a job by renting two smaller dumpsters instead of a single large dumpster. This can be achieved by strategically placing two dumpsters on site to minimize walking distance and to provide the added benefit of always having one available even if the other is full. If you are uncertain about your requirements, our team is available to assist in determining the optimal waste management solution for your project.
Your dumpster will be picked up on the date scheduled at the time of ordering, no call to request pick up is required.
