How to Rent a Dumpster

Ensure the dumpster rental process goes smoothly using the simple steps outlined here:

1.) Plan ahead – Renting a dumpster is generally not a spur of the moment thing. Determine your project’s disposal needs at least two weeks ahead of time. Call at least a week in advance to book the dumpster, or two weeks in advance during busy months (spring, summer, and fall). That way you can rest assured knowing the dumpster will be there when you need it.

2.) Get multiple quotes – Be sure you’re getting the best rate, service, and container for your project by getting quotes from multiple rental providers. We recommend at least two or three.

3.) Prep for drop-off – Make sure the drop off location has easy access and no obstructions, such as cars, kid’s toys, or even fences (if applicable).

4.) Follow the loading guidelines – Avoid the headaches later on and: Don’t over-fill the dumpster, avoid disposing of prohibited items (e.g., hazardous wastes), don’t mix trash in with clean loads (e.g., concrete only), and follow other guidelines given to you by the dumpster rental company.

It’s illegal to throw away e-waste in Illinois

Most electronic items, including (but not limited to) computers, TVs, printers and MP3 players, must be recycled or reused and cannot be mixed in with the general waste stream.

Public Act 97-0287, passed in 2012, mandates that e-waste be sent to an EPA registered e-waste collector.


TIP: In most cases you can also return electronics for proper recycling at the point of sale.
