How to Prep for Delivery and Pickup

When ordering a 10 yard dumpster, keep in mind that you will need to provide placement instructions for the driver. No one needs to be onsite when the container is dropped off or picked up, but remember the following guidelines:

Select a Location:

Clear a spot where you'd like your dumpster placed. Remember that you'll need a permit from the city to have the bin placed on the street.

Remove Obstacles:

The truck requires about 60 feet of space to approach and about 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise and place the dumpster.

Avoid Overloading Your Bin:

If we come pick up your container and debris is sticking out of the sides, we won't be able to safely haul it away, resulting in a fee.

Call for Removal:

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