How To Get A Dumpster Permit

Obtaining a dumpster permit is a straightforward process in a lot of jurisdictions.

Actually, many cities have a requirement that the dumpster rental company you rent from to pull the permits for you.

Also, in cities that do not require permits, the dumpster rental company can be a helpful source of information as far as pulling dumpster permits.

Request information from the dumpster rental company you’re renting from if a permit is required for your rental.

When the dumpster is going to be placed in the public eye, a permit is needed.

When the dumpster rental company takes care of the permit for you, you don’t need to anything else! If they don’t, go to the next step.

Get ahold of your local city hall by phone, online, or face to face.

Speak to the permit department, then fill out the dumpster permit application.

A lot of cities provide online dumpster permit application submissions.

It’s not unusual for the permit approval process taking three or more days days. Prearrange ahead and have the dumpster drop off fittingly.

Adhere to the rules detailed on the permit document and/or the information relayed to you by the employees at the permit office and the dumpster rental company.

Get a hold of the dumpster rental company to guarantee every requirement is met and rules are adhered to.

After the dumpster gets dropped off, fill it with your debris and have the dumpster rental company pick it up prior to the dumpster permit expiring.

If you are going to need more time, again speak to the permitting office and inquire about how to get an extension. Fee are going to apply.

Possible Fines

Not adhering to the city’s guidelines and regulations controlling dumpster use in the public eye could bring you fines.

Fines may cost $200 or more each day in some areas, and when the offense isn’t addressed, constant fines will heighten, and the penalties will get more severe.

Adhere to the rules and regulations and be fast when filling the dumpster.

Renting A Dumpster Vs Junk Removal: What’s Better For DIY Projects?
Written by Craig B

40 Yard Dumpster Rentals Costs 2021

DIY projects are exciting and intimidating at the same time. Maybe you have already mapped out your process, but what comes after the project is completed? Should you dispose of the waste via junk removal or renting a dumpster? Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of both services.

DIY Projects

There are so many DIY projects that homeowners can tackle. A common project these days is essentially a full bedroom makeover. Homeowners can make and design their own headboards, nightstands and even dressers, in some cases. Building bookshelves is another popular exercise. Generally, this is done to improve upon or replace an old bookshelf. What happens with many of these DIY projects is homeowners underestimate how much waste will be produced. Believing your personal trash cans can hold all the waste can be a huge mistake. So, whether you are taking on a project in the bedroom or living room, look into the possibilities of renting a dumpster or calling a junk removal service.

Other common DIY projects:

  • Painting/adding wall art
  • Building a custom entertainment center
  • Constructing a firepit
  • Custom shelfing for storage
  • Making a new set of curtains
  • Closet shelfing or drawers
  • Re-tiling bathroom floors

Dumpster Rentals

There are numerous benefits of choosing a dumpster rental for your upcoming DIY venture. The first pro in the dumpster rental checklist is the safety factor. Being able to dispose of items right away will keep your job site/home as safe as possible. Don’t leave dangerous materials laying around while you wait for a junk removal company. Instead, dispose of them right away, giving you peace of mind. Another benefit is flexibility. Most dumpster companies will give you upwards of ten days to keep the rental. This is definitely enough time to complete any at-home project. You can save money by choosing this route over junk removal, as well. Dumpster rental services offer plenty of sizes of roll off containers, with the smaller sizes working well for at-home cleanings and coming with a much smaller price tag.

  • Eco-friendly
  • Keeps the home safer
  • Peace of mind
  • Saves you money

Junk Removal

The first obvious benefit of hiring a junk removal service is it saves you work. Instead of hauling and tossing materials constantly, the professionals will handle everything for you. Saving you work and hassle is the main calling card for these companies. With saving work comes less time spent overall. This way, you can exclusively concentrate on your DIY project instead of worrying about making trips to and from the dumpster. Many of these services will recycle. Just make sure to ask about that ahead of time, if recycling is one of your bigger concerns.

  • Less work for the homeowner/commercial property owner
  • Saves time
  • Recycling options available

Renting A Dumpster For Garage Cleaning

The fall season brings cooler weather and many new cleaning tasks. Clearing out the garage may be next on your fall cleaning checklist. Renting a dumpster for this process can be invaluable. Here’s a look at some garage cleaning tips and where to rent a dumpster for your excess waste.

Do not underestimate how much waste you’ll produce when giving the garage a full cleaning. A dumpster rental is well worth the investment. Costs can vary, depending on the dumpster rental provider, of course. Always ask about extra charges that could be added on after your project has been completed. Most companies will hold you accountable when it comes to the weight limit. Additional charges will apply in most cases when your load comes in overweight. Another charge that can be added occurs when the renter needs the dumpster longer than expected. Some companies may charge $10+ per day for every extra day needed. Below is a look at average prices for the different sizes of dumpster rentals.

  • 10 yards: $325
  • 15 yards: $325
  • 20 yards: $375
  • 30 yards: $400
  • 40 yards: $445
  • 50 yards: $545

Garage Cleaning Tips

The first thing that should be on your checklist for cleaning the garage is marking down what items you wish to keep. This can be done in several different ways. You can either mark the wanted items with stickers or set them all aside. Next up would be to remove everything from the garage area. This is will give you a great idea of how to use the space better when placing items back in the garage, post-cleaning. You can separate the wanted and unwanted materials in the driveway once everything has been moved from the garage area.

Knowing when and how to let go of an item is crucial. This is something many homeowners struggle with, regardless of what the item may be. Deciding what to throw out may be best left to the entire family. Being honest about use of some items and potential uses is necessary. Throw out or attempt to sell any items that are unneeded. Remember, regardless of the size of dumpster you choose to rent, there will be more than enough space for your discarded items.

Finding alternative storage or putting things away differently can be part of your fall cleaning project. If you have a storage unit, perhaps throwing products you rarely use or ones that only get used during spring, is always a good idea. Unique storage means hanging materials up inside your garage. Things like rakes, brooms or gardening tools can be hung. It also gives your garage a very stylish and sophisticated look. Try to contain all items in your garage, as well. You won’t want any materials loose around the area. This makes them harder to find, and can cause the garage to get messy quickly.

Quick and simple tips for garage cleaning:

  • Separate wanted and unwanted materials
  • Move everything out of the garage area
  • Let go of items you rarely use
  • Find alternative storage, if necessary
  • Organize materials for future needs
