Dumpster Rental Tips

Dumpsters for Rent

When a dumpster permit is necessary

A dumpster permit, sometimes called a “temporary occupancy permit,” is required in cases where the dumpster is to be placed in the public right-of-way. This includes placing the container on the side of a city street or blocking the sidewalk.

If the roll-off container will be placed in the driveway or on your private property, a permit is generally not needed. Check with your dumpster rental provider to be sure all permitting requirements are met.


Tips to reduce the total weight of the load

The weight of debris inside a dumpster can add up quickly, especially when loading dense debris like dirt, concrete or roofing shingles. Here are two tips that can help minimize the weight of a load:

  1. Tarp the dumpster when not in use, otherwise rainwater can drench the load and add a significant amount of weight. It’s possible you could end up paying overage fees if this puts you over the dumpster’s weight allowance.
  2. Some junk or debris may be valuable to others, such as salvaged bricks, working appliances, or reclaimed wood. Leave these things out of the dumpster and instead, sell or give them away locally.

Always be aware of the weight allowance on your dumpster, and discuss this in detail with your dumpster provider if you plan to load dense debris, such as concrete or masonry.
