Are you thinking about renting a residential dumpster for the first time and need to learn more about them?
Whether you’re moving, renovating, or doing a major yard cleanup, renting a residential dumpster is a great idea. But, how do you know what you can load into a rented dumpster or whether you need a permit?
Read on if you’d like to learn the answer to these questions and a few other basic things to know about renting residential dumpsters.
Your Residential Dumpster Is Delivered & Removed For You
A residential dumpster is delivered and picked by the dumpster rental company. At our dumpster rental company in Burlington, we deliver roll-off residential dumpsters to homeowners who need them.
They’re delivered on a special truck which allows the heavy dumpster to be gently slid off the truck and onto the ground. Once you fill it up, we pick the dumpster up along with all the junk inside and haul it away. Viola, your waste disposal needs are easily taken care of!
Homeowners Associations May Have Rules About Dumpsters
Some HOAs have regulations about setting up a dumpster in neighborhoods. If you or your neighbor’s house is part of an HOA, you should know what rules are about setting up dumpsters in your driveway or other areas of the neighborhood or you may be fined for illegal dumping.
Permits For Residential Dumpsters
Unless the residential dumpster is parked on the street or in another public area, you won’t need to worry about getting a city permit for the dumpster.
Contact your city or county permitting office to tell them where the dumpster needs to be parked and whether or not you’ll need a permit.
Some Things Cannot Be Loaded In A Rented Dumpster
There are some things you can’t load into a residential dumpster, such as hazardous chemicals, car batteries, household cleaners, refrigerators, paint cans, and asbestos.
What you can’t put in your dumpster depends on your location and the local rules about the disposal of hazardous waste. Some places don’t even allow mattresses, electronics, or upholstered furniture, so make sure you know in advance what the dumpster waste disposal rules are in your area.
