Is driveway protection available?
Yes, we offer driveway protection or you can provide the supplies to protect your driveway. All of our dumpsters for rent have steel wheels that can leave marks on the driveway just from the delivery process, unless you have material set on the driveway before hand there is no way to eliminate the markings. Customers can have materials on hand (1 sheet of 4×8 plywood 3/4″ thick and a 2×4- 8′ long or 2- 2×6-8′ long and 1 2×4-8′ long ) so our drivers can place them where they need them- there is NO CHARGE if you supply the above materials. Or, we can bring materials that we have created for the driveway protection, for an extra charge for this, please call our office for pricing and arrangements.
How is the weight determined?
Prices for rental are set up calculating the amount of weighed debris to be inserted. All containers that we pick up are charged by the ton (2,000 lbs.) at the various transfer stations we dump at. We pick up your dumpster and drive to the transfer station to pull up on a (state regulated) scale. The scalemaster enters our weight with all debris inside the container. After dumping the load, the truck is weighed again, this time empty. The difference between entering the scale and leaving the scale is subtracted and that ends up being the total weight of the content inside the dumpster. The transfer stations charge by the ton (or portion of) that is the cost of dumping your debris.
Our dumpsters are priced to include *base weights. Any additional weight incurs an overweight charge. We will send a copy of the dump ticket from the transfer station and an invoice stating how much weight was paid for originally and how much overweight the dumpster was.
*base rates have been determined using averages of previous containers throughout the years
Do I have to be home for delivery?
No, you can let us know when you order where you want dumpster placed. We will attempt to place in where you want depending on surroundings (trees, overhead wires, basketball hoop)
How many pounds in one ton?
Can I put landscape in a construction dumpster?
You can put a minimal (2 paper landscape bags) amount of landscaping in a construction dumpster. Landscape debris goes to a different dumpsite. You can order a dumpster (any size) for all
landscape material (no construction debris whatsoever)
How many times will you dump and return the dumpster for the same price?
Our rental includes one trip to the dump. If you need more empty dumpsters it will be the same price as the initial dumpster.
Why do I have to pay for an overweight if it’s caused by the rain/snow?
We pay at the dump by the weight. If you are concerned about the rain or snow, you can tarp the dumpster to help keep the rain/snow out.
Does it cost less if I only need to rent the dumpster for 2 days?
No, our rentals are for up to 1-7 days. If you need it for a less time, we can pick it up early provided you call us 24 hrs. in advance.
Why do mattresses cost extra?
Because the transfer stations we dump at charge us extra to dispose of them.
Can I drop debris off at your location?
No, we are not a transfer drop off facility
Can I come to your facility to see the different sizes of dumpsters?
No, the dumpsters are not kept at our facility, we have various yards around the area where they are parked- we can give you an address of a job site near you.
Why do you have specific weight restrictions on all your dumpsters?
We need a basis point for pricing, so we did a study of our customers and the average weight that they put in the container and that is how we established the weight structure.
Can I fill the dumpster over the top?
No, dumpsters should be filled just below the top so material does not slide out. Dumpsters need to be safe going down the road with a tarp.
Do you have employees to load the dumpster at our job site/home?
No, we only deliver and pick up the dumpsters – loading is not available.
Do all the dumpster have doors on the back for easy loading of material?
Yes, all our dumpsters open, swinging to the right side. You will need 8’ of room to open the dumpster up all the way.

We accept credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) and cash. (You will need to furnish credit card to back up the cash for extra charges if they are incurred)
