When placing a roll-off dumpster in the public right-of-way…

If you need to place your dumpster in the street, the State of New Jersey first requires that you obtain the proper permit from the local municipality, if required by that city or county. This permission is valid for 30 days, at which point it must be renewed (if necessary).

When placing a dumpster on the side of a public street, sidewalk or parking lot, it’s also required that you place reflective markers/tape around it. Violators to this rule face a $100 fine.

Most common roll-off container sizes

Roll-off dumpster sizes vary; the most common are:

  • 10 yard: 12 ft. x 8 ft. x 3.5 ft. (LxWxH)
  • 20 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 4 ft. (LxWxH)
  • 30 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 6 ft. (LxWxH)
  • 40 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 8 ft. (LxWxH)

The container sizes in your area may vary based on what the dumpster rental company carries, as well as the availability of specific containers. If you can’t find the container size you’re looking for, check with a different rental company near you.

Other relatively common container sizes include 8, 12 and 15 yarders. Still other container sizes are also sometimes available. Trailer dumpsters are a roll-off dumpster alternative that work great for a wide range of situations.
