Dumpster Rental Permits

Dumpster Rental Permits

When do you need to obtain a Permit for your Roll-off Container?

Your permit requirements will be based on a number of factors.  The first thing to consider is if the dumpster will be placed on your private property – this will immediately rule out any need to get a permit. Also be aware that the local dumpster rental company that you are paired with through Dumpster Market is not necessarily responsible for any fines you receive throughout your rental – certain cities will hold the dumpster rental company responsible, but not all.

If you plan to have your dumpster sit in public places such as the street or the sidewalk you will likely need to look into your city’s dumpster rental permit requirements. We are in the process of adding specific permit guides for all of the cities we serve to our website to take this burden off of your hands.

The places that will approve your dumpster placement and issue you a permit could be:

  • Your city’s public works department
  • Your city’s building department
  • Your neighborhood homeowner association
