How to Prepare for Delivery and Pickup

When you rent a 12 yard dumpster, we’ll ask for exact placement instructions so the dumpster is delivered right where you want it. This way, you don’t need to be present when the driver arrives. However, please remember the following guidelines for smooth service:

Select a Location

Choose a convenient spot for the dumpster and remember that you'll need a permit from the city for street placement.

Remove Obstacles

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

Avoid Overloading Your Bin

If debris is hanging over the sides when we arrive for pickup, we won't be able to safely haul it away, resulting in a fee.

Contact Us for Removal

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