What methods of payments are accepted?
You may pay with a credit card or you can also download our Credit Application and set up an account with us. We’re sorry, but as of 1/01/08, we will no longer accept payment on-site.      

How soon can I get a dumpster?
It depends on how busy we are at the time the request is received, however, to insure a more accurate delivery date we ask for a 48-hour courtesy notice prior to the delivery time.

Do you have same day service?
Yes we do. If the order is received before noon we’ll most likely be able to provide service that same day.  

How can I determine the amount of weight in a dumpster?
There is no way of knowing the weight in a dumpster until it is actually weight. For weight regulations our customers can refer to the instructions on the work order that’s given upon delivery. Be aware that certain materials such as, but not limited to; drywall, roof shingles, stucco, etc. can make a dumpster heavier. Something else to keep in mind is that tree trunks and tree stumps are large items and a hard to handle fee may apply.

What happens if I go over the limit weight?
There will be additional charge per ton. Also, because of safety regulations from the California Highway Patrol (CHP), if a dumpster exceeds 10 tons or is not filled uniformly it will not be pick it up and there may be additional trip charges.

Will rain add a significant amount of weight to a dumpster?
Not likely, because most of the water will seep to the floor of the dumpster and eventually drain out. However, some inert materials do retain some water.

If a dumpster is placed on my driveway, will it damage it in any way?
An important factor to consider before placing a dumpster is the sturdiness of the driveway, sidewalk, curbs, or lawn where dumpster is to be placed. We recommend the usage of plywood between the dumpster and surface in order to avoid scratches, although, major damage can still occur due to the weight of the dumpster once its fully loaded. 

Do I need a permit to place a dumpster on the street?
Yes, all municipalities require a temporary street use permit when a dumpster is going to be placed on the street, and it’s the homeowner or contractor responsibility to obtain the appropriate permits.  For more information on how to obtain a temporary street use permit see our Links or contact your city’s Public Works Department.

How much space do I need for a dumpster?
It varies depending on the size of dumpster needed. Please, visit Services for more precise specifications.
Keep in mind that our trucks need a minimum of 36 feet long, 10 feet wide, and 14 feet high of space to maneuver safely. Convenience is secondary to safety.
