Dumpster Rental Frequently Asked Questions

How much space do your dumpsters take up?

We recommend that you leave enough space around the dumpster so that you can load it up with waste easily. It is recommended that you have about 35-50 feet of free space to place your dumpster rental. It is important to keep in mind that this is just an estimate and it is best to connect with us on the appropriate space for your dumpster before delivery.


What can I put in the roll-off dumpster?

This is one of the most common questions that our waste removal company gets. It is important that you abide by these guidelines to ensure that we are in compliance with the law.

You are allowed to put items such as: construction waste, household appliances such as stoves, washers, and dryers, furniture, clothing, and general household items in the dumpster.

You are not allowed to put items such as: car batteries, tires, chemicals of any kind, or paint in the dumpster.

Please ask us first before putting items such as asbestos, roofing shingles, or dirt in the dumpster.
