How does renting a 20 yard dumpster work?
All this dumpster rental jargon may be new to you. We’ll help you understand the processes so there are no surprises. Checkout our full guide on how to rent a dumpster for even more information.
For starters let's estimate how much weight you'll be putting into the dumpster. If you need help you can always give us a call (732) 366-9355 and we'll happily help find the right weight limit for your project. Weight limits are based off of US tons, where 1 ton is equal to 2,000 pounds. A weight limit is a pre purchased amount of material that you can put into the dumpster at a discounted disposal rate.
If you're ready, our online ordering process will take you step by step to get the best weight limit for you.
Delivery and loading
Once you place your order the next step is delivery. Before every delivery we check Google Maps to make sure that we send the right size truck. This way your deliveries always go smoothly. Not on Google Maps? Don’t worry we’ll contact you ensure you don’t experience any hiccups or delivery delays.
Here are a few tips to help out with your dumpster:
- Placement: Roll off trucks need about 60 feet of space in front of your desired drop location. Please move cars out or to the side of the driveway and remove all items from the path of the truck.
- Vertical clearance: A standard roll off truck need about 23 feet of vertical clearance in order to raise the dumpster to place it. If you think there will be an issue please call us. We have more compact trucks which don't need as much clearance that we can send.
- Go about your day: Due to wait times at disposal sites and changing traffic conditions it is difficult to determine when your dumpster will arrive. No one needs to be home for the delivery though. You can sign up for text message updates to know when to expect your dumpster.
- Load mindfully: Placing prohibited items in the dumpster can result in contamination fees. Also be mindful of the rim, loading above the rim can pose a hazard when the dumpster is being transported. Loading above the rim is not allowed.
Pick up and disposal
Pick up is simple. Contact us when you are done loading your dumpster and we'll promptly remove it for you. No one needs to be home for the pick up.
We then bring your dumpster to the appropriate disposal facility where they weigh the material you put into the dumpster. If you dumpster is within your weight limit you’re all set! If the material does exceed the weight limit the appropriate and agreed upon overage disposal fee will be automatically charged.
You’ll receive your payment receipt by email.
