Frequently Asked Questions

HOW TO OPEN AND LOAD YOUR DUMPSTER

In this video Kyle Kraft provides a step by step, all you need to know tutorial on how to open and safely load your dumpster.

The first thing you need to do before renting a dumpster is to determine what size you’ll need. One of the biggest mistakes people make is ordering the wrong size. Paying for a dumpster that is only half filled, or paying for a second dumpster because you didn’t order a big enough one doesn’t make sense.

This really depends on what is most convenient for you the customer. If you have room on the driveway that is usually the best spot. Our dumpsters have driveway friendly rubber wheels.

Schedule the Dumpster the day you intend to start the project to prevent unauthorized dumping in your Dumpster. Schedule Dumpster pickup 24 Hours in advance to make sure it is moved out of your way

Another consideration is the type of waste you will be generating. Many dumpster companies don’t allow a mixture of materials. For examples gravel and fill cannot be combined with other materials. Also, depending on what you will be dumping, the weight just might be a factor. Heavier items will cost more to dump. The best way to determine your cost is to consult us let us know exactly what you need to dispose and we will let you know the most cost effective solution for your disposal.

It is against the law to dispose of hazardous waste. Hazardous wastes include chemical products, oil filters, herbicides & pesticides, radioactive material, solvents, paint (except completely dried latex paint cans, no liquids), other flammable liquids, partially filled aerosol cans, propane tanks, motor oil, transmission oil/lubricating/hydraulic oil/, contaminated oils (mixed with solvents, gasoline, etc.), antifreeze, refrigerators, petroleum contaminated soil/lead paint chips, tires, batteries, fluorescent tubes, railroad ties, medical waste, asbestos, dead animals, sealed barrels or cylinders.

Renting a dumpster can be a big expense and prices can greatly vary from one supplier to the next, so do your homework and get at least two quotes. Inquire about added expenses such as; overage charges, tipping fees, late fees and fuel surcharges, so that you can have a true comparison.
