Delivery and loading

Now that you've ordered your dumpster, it's time for it to be delivered. We check Google Maps before your delivery we make sure that there won't be any unforeseen issues with placement. If we anticipate an issue we'll contact you to make sure the dumpster can be placed where you want it, or find a suitable alternative delivery placement.

Below are a few tips to help ensure you have a great experience:

  • Horizontal space: Delivery trucks need about 60 feet of space in front of the placement location. Please remove any items that may be in the path between the truck and the drop spot. Move any cars out or to the side of your driveway.
  • Vertical space: The truck also needs about 23 feet of vertical clearance so that it can lift the dumpster and place it properly. Don't have the space? Give us a call (732) 366-9355 and we'll figure out how to place the dumpster.
  • No need to be home: No one needs to be home for the delivery! Changing traffic conditions and erratic lines at disposal sites make it hard to predict exactly when your dumpster will be delivered. You can stay up to date with text message updates if you'd like.
  • Be careful what you throw in: Prohibited and hazardous materials cannot go into the dumpster. Also do not fill the container above it's sides, because we may not be able to pick it up.
