Dumpster Guidelines

Dumpster Sizes

Dumpster sizes vary by service and by area. To check available sizes in your area, enter your zip code in the residential dumpster service finder.

Larger sizes may be available in your area, but not shown online. For assistance, please contact Customer Service.

Dumpster Placement

It is recommended that you provide space to accommodate double the amount of the width and height of the container to assure adequate height and space clearance. Please refer to the container dimensions described in the product details. If you need additional assistance, please contact Customer Service.

Residential customers: please check with your local municipality in case permits are required before placing a container on the street.

The customer assumes all liabilities for damages to any private driving surface, pavement or accompanying subsurface or any route associated to perform the service that was contracted.

Delivery & Removal Guidelines

  • If you have a gated driveway, you will need to provide the driver with a pass code, a key, or the hours of operation and an onsite contact. 
  • It is not necessary to have someone onsite for delivery or removal of the container. However, please be as specific as possible when answering the delivery questions, as the driver will use their best judgment and place the container in the safest accessible area when delivering the container. If an onsite contact is not available for delivery you will be responsible for all charges involved with relocation of the dumpster should it be necessary. For removal, the customer agrees to provide unobstructed access to the equipment on the scheduled pickup day; if the equipment is inaccessible, the customer is subject to additional pickup charges, as terms and conditions apply.
  • If the driver comes for delivery or removal and the customer is not ready for the container to be dropped or removed, please note that trip charges will incur a supplementary cost of $150 per visit from the initial quote.
  • Please be advised that deliveries can run any time of the day, and as early as 2 AM in some areas.
