Temporary Dumpster Rentals in Washington D.C.

DPW offers residential trash/recycling collection but not commercial services

Businesses, apartment complexes and residential buildings with four or more units must hire trash/recycling services from a private dumpster company, as the Department of Public Works does not handle commercial dumpster services.

Will I need a permit to rent a dumpster in Washington DC?

You will probably need to secure a permit if the container is to be placed in the public right-of-way, such as a city street or alleyway. The cost of these dumpster permits is $75 per month.

Check with your dumpster rental company to see if they handle permitting requirements for you or if you need to secure the permit yourself.

Washington DC recycles construction and demolition debris

The DPW in Washington D.C. does not collect construction and demolition debris as part of its bulk waste collection service. C&D debris is collected and recycled by private waste removal companies.

More Tips on Dumpster Rental in Washington DC, DC

What type of waste is not allowed in a dumpster?

Certain wastes are banned from dumpsters for environmental reasons. Local, state and federal laws govern what’s allowed to be dumped at landfills and disposal services must stick to these guidelines. These are the most common prohibited items:

  • Household hazardous wastes (HHW), such as cleaners, bleach, paint and other chemicals
  • Automobile fluids, such as motor oil, antifreeze and brake fluid
  • Explosives, such as fireworks
  • Any flammable liquid
  • Sealed 55-gallon barrels
  • Scrap tires
  • Lead-acid batteries (e.g., car batteries)
  • Debris containing asbestos
  • Certain appliances that contain toxic chemicals, such as refrigerators containing Freon

Keep in mind that this list is not exclusive. Talk to your dumpster rental provider about its policies on prohibited dumpster wastes, as well as where the proper place to dispose of these items is located.

5 common types of dumpsters and how they are priced

Commercial dumpsters – Used for weekly/monthly trash hauling services at businesses, like restaurants and gas stations. These "front load" containers are generally not for temporary use and are priced by the number of pickups during the week or month.

Roll-off dumpsters – "Open top" containers you rent for temporary use at home, construction sites or commercial cleanups.  Pricing method varies by company, but generally involves a flat fee with a set amount of weight included in the price.  Additional weight costs more.

Dump trailers – An alternative to roll-off dumpsters used by some rental providers. It offers the advantage of being on wheels, which decreases the risk of damage to your driveway.  Priced similar to roll off dumpsters.

Dumpster bags – Large 3 cubic yard bags are delivered or purchased locally and picked up by the provider when complete.  For small amounts of debris.  Purchase the bag (generally $30 - $40) and pay the hauler for the pickup (frequently in the $149 to $199 range).

Lowboys – Dumpsters with very low sides, ideal for loading heavy materials such as dirt, concrete or masonry.  These are often required to be "clean" loads in order to get the best pricing.  By clean, we mean only one type of debris.  For example, a load of clean concrete can be taken to the concrete recycler rather than the landfill for a much lower disposal fee.  Concrete recycling facilities do not accept "dirty" loads of mixed debris.

What are the most common roll-off dumpster sizes?

The most commonly available roll-off container sizes include:

  • 10 cubic yard bins – Ideal for residential cleanouts
  • 20 cubic yard containers – Versatile container can be used for a variety of cleanups
  • 30 cubic yard dumpsters – Good size for handling foreclosure cleanouts or shed/garage demolitions
  • 40 cubic yard dumpsters – Optimal container for new construction and demolition

1 cubic yard is equal to the volume of a 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. object. A standard kitchen stove is approximately 1 cubic yard in size. Learn more about roll-off dumpster sizes.
