Steps for Renting a Dumpster

1) What size do I need?

Determine the amount of debris or junk your project will generate. Our dumpster sizing guide helps visualize the amount of space in a dumpster, as well as the most common sizes for certain types of projects.

2) Estimate the Length of your Project

Estimate the amount of time your project will take. Our vendors offer base rental periods ranging from 7-15 days. All of our vendors will let you keep it longer, but some have different extra day fees. If you think your project will take longer than 15 days, it’s best to either pick a vendor with low extra day fees or plan to have the dumpster swapped out. A swap out will extend your rental by the base period and give you an empty dumpster to fill.

3) Get your Drop-off Location Ready

Check your driveway and your job site, be sure that your drop off location is free from low-hanging power lines or branches. The truck will need vertical clearance of 14-18 feet depending on the size of your dumpster. In addition to the height of the truck, a straight line of 50 feet from the drop-off point should be clear for rolling the dumpster off the truck.

If you have a stone or paver driveway, you may want to consider placing plywood down where the dumpster will be dropped off, this will help prevent damage. If your dumpster is getting placed on the street, you may need a special permit.
