Q: "Does the dumpster container have a door?"

A: Yes. All of our containers feature an access door at the rear that is as wide as the containerer. Most of the containers the door swings all the way around and flush against the side when opened. The container is open along the entire top.

 

Q: Do you offer residential curbside service?

A: At this time we do not offer weekly residential services. However, we are happy to help you with your remodeling or cleanup disposal needs.

 

Q: "I have a nice driveway that I don't want damaged or scratched when the container is delivered. What can be done to help prevent any damage?"

A: We cannot guarantee that the container will not leave marks. However: we can recommend that the customer provide two 4x8 sheets of plywood for the driver to place under the container. The boards may be old scrap lumber but should be free of screws and nails. This step will help prevent scratching and dimpling on the driveway. The wood will be left behind at pickup. We also cannot guarantee your driveway will not crack. Our trucks empty can weigh up to 30,000 lbs and full legal weight is 54,000 lbs. We are not responsible for broken or cracked driveways.

 

Q: "Can the dumpster be placed on my front lawn?"

A: Yes, but the container and truck will leave marks and damage the lawn. There may also be a problem if we have to back over a curb to place the container in position. Some towns forbid doing this, others don't mind. Please check with your towns building department if you are not sure. We are not responsible for broken or cracked curbs. You should be knowledgeable of the water lines and septic tank locations.

Q: Where can I place the roll-off container?

A: Most homeowners have the container placed in their driveway. Please keep in mind that driveways must have a firm foundation or the weight of the truck and loaded container may crack the driveway. Containers may also be placed on the lawn, but the weight of the container and truck will damage the lawn and in some cases leave ruts. Please examine the area you would like the container to be placed to ensure there is enough access keeping in mind that there must be at least 25' of overhead clearance.
