What Should I Do Before My Dumpster Rental Arrives?

Renters should perform a number of small chores before their dumpster rental is dropped off. Failure to do so may delay delivery and result in extra fees. 



There are dozens of reasons homeowners might order a large receptacle for their residence.  Spring cleaning, roof repair, kitchen remodels, and various home improvement projects are made cheaper and easier with dumpster rental. And because service providers handle delivery, pickup and disposal, homeowners rarely have any difficulties.  There are, however, a few things we recommend renters do to prepare for delivery.  Failure to perform these tasks could delay delivery and/or result in extra fees.

Clear a Space

Before a container is dropped off, it is important to find an unoccupied area where it can safely sit for several days or weeks. Make sure that the area where the bin will be delivered is free of debris and clutter. Remember that a truck and a bin need to be able to be in that space in order to place the bin and make sure to account for both the vehicle and the bin. The ground in this area should be protected by a hard surface, such as concrete or hard gravel, so the receptacle will not sink into the earth. It is also important that something be placed under the dumpster on top of the driveway or gravel to ensure that the dumpster rollers and edges do not touch the ground to help prevent damage. At Bin There Dump That every bin we deliver we provide a proven driveway protection system that utilizes wooden board placement under all of our bins, saving you the time of having to provide and often lay them down yourself like with other companies.  It also provides peace of mind that your driveway will not need to be repaired after the project you are completing now is done.

Ensure Safe Disposal

Because they are potentially dangerous, there are certain items you can't place in a dumpster rental. Although guidelines may vary from state to state, most prohibit the disposal of hazardous chemicals. As such, products like gasoline, propane tanks, paint, and pesticides are off-limits. Renters should also abstain from tossing tires, needles, syringes, and household electronics into their bins.

Make Room for Delivery


Many first-time renters make the mistake of only clearing enough space for the receptacle. But because the delivery truck is much bigger than the dumpster rental, it will need a fairly wide berth. There should not, for example, be any cars or objects within ten feet of the staging area. If there are obstructions that cannot be moved by the delivery truck driver, he cannot drop off the receptacle at the designated time.

Cleanouts and remodeling projects

Cleanouts and remodeling projects can be overwhelming, if you can ask family/friends to come over to help you out. Offering pizza, snacks and a good time afterwards can often entice others to come help you with larger projects and allows you to spend time with those you care about while making the process easier to manager for you.  Make it a party!


Obtain Permits (If Needed)

If you intend on placing a rented receptacle in your driveway, you probably won't need a permit, because that's your private property. However, if you want to keep the dumpster rental on a public street, odds are you will need a permit from your local parking enforcement or building permit office. Failure to do acquire one could result in expensive tickets and parking fines.

Follow these simple tips to ensure safe and expeditious dumpster rental delivery.
