Q.Where can I place the dumpster on my property?

A.In some areas, a permit may be required if you plan to place the dumpster on a public street or right-of-way. Check with your local municipality or city government for specific requirements.
Q.Do I need to be present when the dumpster is delivered?
A.No. It is not required for the renter to be present when the dumpster is delivered. Please make sure any special instructions are given to the office at the time of renting the dumpster.
Q.What if I fill the dumpster before the rental period ends?
A.If you fill the dumpster before the rental period is over, you can call to schedule a pickup for early removal or request an empty-and-return service for an additional fee.
