20 Yard Dumpster FAQ

Typically, if your rental dumpster will fit entirely on your driveway or on private property, a permit is not needed. A permit may be necessary if the dumpster will encroach on any public right-of-way, such as blocking a sidewalk or if you need the dumpster placed in the street in front of your home. In addition, some HOAs have rules about where a dumpster can be placed at your home, so you’ll want to check your HOA regulations.

Our 20 yard dumpster containers measure 8 feet wide, 20 feet long, and 4 feet tall. A 24 foot long driveway can usually accommodate a 20 yard dumpster. If your driveway is shorter than this, the dumpster can be delivered onto the street in front of your home.

Getting the proper size dumpster for your job is important. You need to be able to accommodate all the trash and debris, but don’t want to pay for a larger size dumpster than you need. Our team has years of experience helping homeowners, construction pros, and business owners get the right size dumpster at the right price. When you call, we’ll help you determine the best size for your specific project. Our 20 yard dumpster easily has room for those larger clean-out jobs, mid-size construction projects, large yard landscaping and clean-up, rental home updates, and large kitchen remodels.

Due to local, state, and federal regulations, there are some items that should not be tossed into your rental roll off dumpster container. These include flammable materials, such as fuels, propane tanks, and gasoline. Other items to keep out of your rental dumpster include liquid paint, pesticides, medical waste, old tires, and sealed drums. Large bulky items, such as old mattresses or appliances, may not be accepted at your local landfill. If you are unsure about any specific material or item, call us to determine a safe method of disposal.

We can set a later pick-up date and will include extra days at a set rate of $15 per day. If you run into weather or construction delays, give us a call to delay your pick-up.
