What is the weight limit of my dumpster?

Each container comes with its own weight restrictions, and it’s important not to exceed that weight. Use our weight calculator to determine the weight of your debris.

Is there a right way to load a dumpster?

Yes. When loading a dumpster, it’s best to load it as evenly as possible. Make sure there are no items hanging over the container walls or sticking over the top. This ensures your dumpster can be hauled away safely.

Do I need a permit for a dumpster?

If you plan on having your dumpster placed on the street or another form of public property, you will likely have to obtain a permit. A customer service representative will be able to tell you whether or not you need a dumpster permit upon placing your order.

I was very pleased with your service. Both of your drivers were courteous and spotted the dumpster down a narrow driveway. Both pickup and delivery were on time. I was very pleased.

Belleville, Illinois

We had an awesome experience with Roll Off Dumpsters from beginning to end! The customer service I received when I first called to place the order and then when I called to have the dumpster picked up was exceptional. The dumpster was delivered in a very timely manner and there was absolutely no damage done to our driveway. Pricing was super and I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family. Many thanks!
