How to Prepare for a Dumpster Delivery

Como Disposal - Thursday, April 18, 2019

It’s that time of year that spring cleaning, home renovations and landscaping projects are in full swing.  The best way to get rid of unwanted junk, construction debris and yard waste is to rent a dumpster.  To save time and hassle, it is best to have a plan of where to put the dumpster and have the area prepared before delivery.  This will ensure that the process will be free of problems.

When ordering your dumpster by phone or online, be sure to let the company know where you plan to put it so they can let you know if it is a viable option.   

A hard, flat surface is an ideal location.  The area should be at least a 16 feet wide to accommodate the truck and its mechanics.  Also keep height in mind; the area should be clear of tree limbs, hanging wires etc.  The drop-off zone should be clear of vehicles, kid’s toys, fences, debris, garbage cans etc at the time you are expecting delivery, exchange, or pickup.  If the container is being placed on a driveway or other asphalt that is in good condition, you should place large pieces of plywood where the bin is to be located to avoid damage.

You should not consider placing your dumpster on a hill (for obvious reasons!) or soft surfaces where the delivery truck could get stuck.  If your dumpster is going to be sitting on the street make sure you have the proper city permits. 

Dumpsters rarely cause damage but be careful with heavy loads such as concrete or roof shingles.  Be mindful of the stated weight limit of the dumpster. 

Be sure to make note of your delivery date and time! A dumpster rental is a simple and safe way to dispose of your unwanted waste especially when you are prepared!
