2. What size dumpsters do you offer?

10yd (8ft wide, 10ft long, 4ft tall)
15yd (8ft wide, 11ft long, 4.5ft tall)
20yd (8ft wide, 11ft long, 6ft tall)
25yd (8ft wide, 14ft long, 6ft tall)

3. Does anyone need to be home for dumpster delivery?

No one is required to meet us for dumpster delivery. Please be sure to clearly communicate with your local Dudez any special notes regarding dumpster placement. Our Dumpster Dudez team will always ask where you would like the bin placed and will do their very best to accommodate all requests within the safety and parameters of our equipment and ability.

4. I have a small driveway; will the dumpster fit in my driveway?

Dumpster Dudez dumpsters come in a variety of sizes and can often fit in tight spaces. Since most driveways are at least 10 feet wide, this provides plenty of room for the dumpster. Our smallest dumpster has a footprint about the size of a standard car, and our largest dumpster has a footprint about the size of a standard enclosed landscape trailer. Please be sure to inform your local Dudez of any special circumstances regarding a confined space delivery to ensure best practices are followed.

5. Will the dumpster damage my driveway?

Your local Dudez will always place the dumpster on wooden boards; which has proven to be the best method in protecting surfaces. Our Dudez use best practices to safeguard your driveway and are trained to keep the dumpster on the boards at all times during drop off and pick up of your dumpster.

6. What does it cost to rent a dumpster?

Pricing is determined based on several local factors and will vary depending on your location. For accurate pricing, please contact your local Dudez to request a quote and receive expert guidance.

7. How does the rental process work?

Dumpster Dudez makes renting dumpsters “E Z” in, and “E Z” out! To start, you simply call to speak with an expert and place your order, or reserve your order online. Then, your local Dudez will deliver the dumpster on the day you scheduled. Let us know when you are finished with your project, schedule your pick up, and our Dudez will retrieve the bin as soon as possible. We pride ourselves on customer service and clear communication; if anything arises that changes the schedule, we do our very best to notify you as soon as possible.

8. Can you break down the fees associated with a dumpster rental?

Additional fees and pricing will vary by location. Examples of additional fees include; sales tax (per state), extra weight, extra days, banned materials, over-loaded, dumpster damage / cleaning, etc. We recommend clear communication on your end regarding time, material type, material quantity, etc. to avoid additional fees.

9. How does the payment process work?

Each location may process payments with variations; however, you will typically be charged via credit card for the dumpster rental on the scheduled day of dumpster delivery. Any additional fees will be assessed and calculated once the dumpster is picked up and emptied, and a second charge for additional fees will be processed only if applicable.

10. Will I need a permit to rent a dumpster?

It is always best to check with your local municipality or HOA for compliance. Any placement (driveway, street, alley, etc.) may require you to obtain a permit from your local municipality or HOA. If you are unsure, we always recommend you double-check with the authorizing agent.

11. What type of waste is accepted? And are there any materials I cannot put in the dumpster?

Most non-hazardous solid waste can be placed in the dumpsters. This generally includes waste from home cleanouts, moving preparations, construction projects, etc. Acceptable materials may vary per location, so please check with your local Dudez before disposing of any materials you might believe to be prohibited.

12. What materials are not permitted in the dumpster?

We are a solid waste carrier, so generally speaking; no liquids, solvents, chemicals, or paints of any kind, anything flammable or explosive, anything corrosive, most large electronic devices, appliances, or tires. A list of items can be found on our website, but again, it’s best to check with your local Dudez regarding any questionable items.

13. Is there a weight limit for my dumpster rental?

Pricing varies by location, but typically, your rental pricing will include an allotted complimentary tonnage per bin size. For example, you may receive a price for a 10yd bin that includes say, 1 ton, in the price. As long as you do not exceed that allotted tonnage, you will not have an additional charge for extra weight. Please contact your local Dudez for dumpster rates and the allotted tonnage included with each dumpster size.

14. I’m not sure how long I need the dumpster; do you offer different rental lengths?

Yes, but available rental periods vary by location. Common rental lengths include 7-day, 14-day, and 30-day rentals; and you can keep the dumpster for the agreed-upon rental period. If you need additional days beyond the agreed upon rental period, please check with your local Dudez to discuss pricing, rental lengths, and availability.

15. I have old cans of paint, am I able to put them in the dumpster?

Yes, but they must be dried out completely with a paint-drying agent for our safety on the roads. This also helps ensure you avoid additional cleaning fees.

16. How much notice do you need to schedule my dumpster pick-up?

Often times, it is fair to expect a 24-hour notice for scheduling a pick-up. However, in some cases, our Dudez may be able to pick up the dumpster sooner depending on their schedule. If circumstances arise where a 24-hour pick-up is not possible, we will do our best to communicate the timeline needed for scheduling the pick-up.

17. What should I do when I am finished loading the dumpster?

When you are finished, simply call or text your local Dudez to schedule the pick-up. No one needs to be present at the time of pick up, but please ensure the dumpster contents are even with or below the top of the dumpster, and move vehicles or anything else that would be obstructing our access to the dumpster. We will secure the dumpster contents with a tarp and double check the area to clean any leftover debris.

18. Where do you dispose of the contents?

Our Dudez unload the dumpsters at the local landfill, or at a transfer station if access is available. Doing so allows for fast and accurate calculations of any applicable additional expenses to close the job and provide a detailed receipt for the order.

19. How high can I fill the dumpster?

Please ensure all contents are even with or below the top rails of the dumpster. This helps ensure the safety of our Dudez while securing the tarp, and also when we are transporting the contents on the road. Overstuffed dumpsters are liable to having contents removed, and any additional work required by your local Dudez to ensure safe transport may result in additional charges.

20. Do you accept clean fill; dirt, rock, concrete, asphalt, bricks, etc.?

Acceptance of this type of material varies by location, so it is best to check with your local Dudez prior to ordering a dumpster for any of these contents. Due to our truck capacity and weight restrictions for safe transport, we must ensure the amount of debris does not exceed a 5yd maximum. If approved by your local Dudez, we can offer a 10yd dumpster to be filled halfway. Additional charges will be applied for overstuffed dumpsters or extra work required by your local Dudez for the safe transport of the contents.

Excellent service from Dumpster Dudez, so accommodating and helpful. The delivery person contacted me ahead of time to let me know the dumpster was on the way. I didn’t even have to be home. Filling the dumpster with 20 years of collected junk was quite satisfying. Highly recommended.

Such a great experience! We needed a dumpster to clean out our house before selling and this was the best company we talked to – not just price wise but with how friendly and knowledgeable they were. Highly recommend them!
