Dumpster FAQ

Dumpster rental seems so ordinary that everyone thinks it as simple as calling a company, having a dumpster provided and then the company hauls the dumpster away after it has been used. However like any other service, once you dig a bit deeper and get to know more about specific details about dumpster container rentals, you are likely to have some more questions.

At Dumpster Rental Denver Center, we are specialized in recycling services and dumpster roll-off rental services. In order to facilitate the main questions you may have, we have set this list of dumpster FAQ to guide you through the rental process:

How large is the dumpster?

The dimensions of the dumpster are measured in cubic yards. For instance, a 30-yard dumpster will accommodate 30 cubic yards of waste items. Our standard dumpster sizes are 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards.

How long can I rent a dumpster?

You can rent the dumpster for any length of time ranging from one day up to four weeks with maximum rental services. However, bigger waste management companies like us can supply dumpsters which can be retained for more than four weeks or even on an on-going basis whenever required. In this setup, the dumpster is serviced to a regular curbside collection, with removal happening daily, weekly or even bi-weekly.

Is it true that I need to load the dumpster in a certain way?

Yes, that’s correct. Dumpsters must be loaded in a way so that the debris inside stay more or less even. There must not be any concentrations of waste heaps or holes in a specific area inside the dumpster. You must likewise try not to overload the dumpster.

This means that the trash must not pass the top or stick out away from the container. Inappropriately filling a dumpster may lead to extra rental fees. Big dumpsters typically have a door to make it simpler to load them appropriately.

Is my presence needed during the dumpster pick up?

Your presence will not be necessary for pickup given that the dumpster was loaded appropriately and there is no obstructions to access it.

In the case that I need the dumpster for a more extended period than what I initially paid for, what should I do?

Whenever you realize during your rental that you possibly need to have the dumpster for a lengthier period than you originally planned, you must inform us as soon as you can. We are often flexible in these situations and will not give additional charges to keep the dumpster for a couple of days or more.

Do I need any form of paperwork before renting?

Generally not. However, there’s a need to obtain a permit from your building permit office if you have to place the dumpster on a public property location. The issuer defines the extent of the permit, so it would be wise to initially check if you need a permit before actually booking your rental as a hauler may receive your custom before approving your permit status.

How fast can I get a dumpster?

Dumpsters are available for rent on a first-come-first-serve basis due to the logistics involved. It is possible to acquire a dumpster on the same day you made your order in some cases. We are very passionate in giving you an exceptional quality of services, so we always deliver our dumpsters as fast as possible.

Furthermore, a dumpster can be picked up on the same day as delivery. We too accept bookings that are made one day in advance.

Is it okay for me to use a dumpster bag instead?
