Preparing for Delivery and Pickup of a 15 Yard Dumpster

When you set up a 15 yard dumpster rental, you’ll need to provide delivery placement instructions for us to communicate to our driver. You won’t need to be onsite when the dumpster is dropped off or picked up, but it’s important to follow these general guidelines:

Make Room:

Clear about 60 feet of driveway space to accommodate the delivery truck. If you plan to place the dumpster in the street, you may need to get a permit first.

Remove Obstacles:

The truck needs about 23 feet of vertical clearance to unload the dumpster. Also make sure no locked gates, cars or other obstacles are blocking the area.

Call for Pickup:

Don't forget to call our team member to schedule pickup for your dumpster on or before the last day of your rental period.

After you order your 15 yard dumpster, our team will send you a detailed email about what to expect, along with a list of prohibited items and a copy of your invoice. If you have any questions or want to double-check anything with your rental, just give us a call.
