What is the right way to load a dumpster?

Please be sure to only load dumpsters to the level of the rim.  No items should be hanging over the sides or sticking out of the dumpster. If a container is over loaded past the rim of the container there will be an additional charge of $50 for driver to remove trash to acceptable level. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we do not want trash blowing off our trucks and into our city highways.

Do you deliver to residential driveways?

Yes, but we recommend 20 cubic yard dumpsters for residential projects due to the size and weight of dumpster containers. Please keep in mind that most driveways are designed to support regular vehicles, not a roll-off weighing over 50k lbs. when loaded.

  • We recommend that our customers protect any surface where the roll-off is going to be placed with sheets of plywood. However, this does not guarantee that it will fully protect any driving surface. Therefore, it us up to the customer to determine the best possible location to place container and determine if it strong enough to support the weight of the equipment and container.

Can we dispose of dirt, concrete and steel?

Yes, but we recommend 20 cubic yard dumpsters for residential projects due to the size and weight of dumpster containers. Please keep in mind that most driveways are designed to support regular vehicles, not a roll-off weighing over 50k lbs. when loaded.

  • Dirt is extremely heavy, especially when wet. Please call us for a dump truck.
  • Due to the weight of concrete, we only allow 20-yard boxes to be filled approx. 60%.
  • For hollow or light steel that takes up a lot of volume, a 30-yard box may be used; however, solid steel may require a 20-yard box to be filled 50% to 75%.

Please note if driver feels that the load is too heavy when raising on to the truck, he would have to lower box so that customer can remove some weight.
