Dumpster rental seems so ordinary that everyone thinks it is as simple as calling a company, having a dumpster provided, and then having the company haul the dumpster away after it has been used. However, as with any other service, once you dig a little deeper and learn more about dumpster rental specifics, you are likely to have questions.

At Same Day Dumpster Rental Lubbock, we deal in dumpster roll-off service and recycling services. This list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) has been put together to answer your most important questions.

How large is a dumpster?

The dumpster’s dimensions are displayed in cubic yards. For example, a 30-yard dumpster can hold 30 cubic yards of waste materials. The standard sizes for our dumpsters are 10 yards, 20 yards, 30 yards, and 40 yards.

How long can a dumpster be rented?

You can rent a dumpster from maximum rental services for anywhere from one day to four weeks. However, larger waste management companies such as ours can provide dumpsters that can be rented for longer than four weeks or even on an ongoing basis. In this setup, the dumpster is serviced by a regular curbside collection, with removal happening daily, weekly, or even biweekly.

What is the dumpster rental process?

The dumpster rental process is actually pretty simple. First, you call the dumpster rental company and let them know where and when you would like your dumpster delivered.The driver then delivers the dumpster on the date you ordered. You then fill the dumpster with debris and other items from your location, home, or job site. When you are finished with your dumpster, call the office to let them know you are ready for the dumpster to be removed.

What size dumpster do I need?

This is the most common question we receive. It is often hard to predict just how big a dumpster you need, especially when a small job ends up turning into a rather large one.

All types of items can go inside dumpsters. Roofing and construction companies use dumpsters for roofing shingles and other construction debris. Renting a dumpster for yard waste is common in the spring and fall. Dumpster rentals for home renovations that require disposing of drywall, tile, and other debris are also frequent. Most household junk can also go inside your dumpster. Items you are not allowed to put in the dumpster include batteries, adhesives, oil, paint, tires, and anything that might be flammable or explosive.

What If the Dumpster Causes Damage?

You acquire the dumpster at your own risk. Please be aware that the dumpsters and trucks are extremely heavy, so it is possible that they could cause damage to the area. We placed wood underneath the junk can when it was placed on the driveway. This almost always protects the driveway, but we are not responsible for any damage.

What If Rainfall Occurs?

When the dumpster is picked up and placed on the truck, all the excess water will be drained away. Yes, the weight could be affected if there are items that absorb water. There is nothing we can do to change the situation. We are also charged for the weight of that water. If you are extremely concerned, we recommend covering it with a cover to keep water out.

Why Do I Get Charged For Overweight?

We transport the dumpsters to transfer stations, which charge based on the dumpster’s weight. We include a certain weight allowance in the cost of the dumpster. However, if it exceeds the weight limit, you will be charged for the excess weight.

What Happens If My Dumpster Is Overfilled?

If the dumpster is too full, we will not collect it, and a trip fee will be assessed. In some instances, it is only a matter of a few items being unsafely piled on top. The driver will remove them and leave them on the premises.

How much does dumpster rental cost?

This differs by company, but most charge for pick-up, drop-off, fuel surcharge, tonnage, and daily rental. Depending on your circumstances, there may be additional fees. Be certain to discuss your needs with the company in advance.

What types of junk do you remove?

We specialise in working with the majority of home improvement, demolition, and cleanout projects, but EPA regulations prohibit us from disposing of certain items.

How long can I keep my dumpster rental?

All of our dumpsters come with a 14-day rental agreement; however, we understand that sometimes projects take longer than expected.

How Do You Take Payment?

We require additional payment upon delivery. We accept cash and debit or credit cards as methods of payment.

Can the dumpster be moved?

No. We recommend that someone be present at the time of delivery (though it is not required) or specify exactly where the dumpster should be placed on the property. If we are unsure, we will place it in the most convenient location possible. Call us if you have questions about location.

Can I rent multiple dumpsters?

Yes.   We will automatically return in 7 days to pick up the container unless you instruct otherwise.

What goes into the junk can?

Our business accepts all household, construction, and concrete waste materials. Soil, stumps, and brush are also permitted. Keep in mind, however, that hazardous wastes such as harmful chemicals, battery liquids, asbestos, solvents, and other hazardous wastes are prohibited or require special packaging.

Consult your local county government office if you need to dispose of these types of waste; they will be able to provide you with a list of accredited companies that can safely handle and dispose of hazardous chemicals.

What is your policy on recycling and being environmentally friendly?

We, like many dumpster rental and waste management companies, offer eco-friendly services. Typically, the dumpster’s contents are dumped at the landfill as soon as the garbage has been collected.

But Same Day Dumpster Rental Lubbock, like most dumpster rental companies today, also rents out bins for things that can be recycled. Occasionally, some companies offer to sort the contents of your recycling bins for you. You need only inquire whether they provide this service.

What size dumpster do I need?

This will depend on the scope of the project and the expected amount of waste generated. Our company’s policy has always been to inform customers of the maximum load capacity of the container unit. If you are unsure of how much junk you will generate, it is recommended that you rent a larger dumpster.

However, smaller dumpsters are preferred when remodeling or renovating a home or business. As construction debris such as cement, rocks, and other heavy materials tend to be heavier than typical junk, they can exceed the weight limits. When in doubt, please contact us by phone. The specialists in our office can assist you with this decision.

Before you sign your agreement with us, know that each city has different dumpster specifications for both private and public land. Do not forget to contact your local county and ask about the requirements you need to follow. On some occasions, the rental company can assist you in gathering the information you need. However, processing it would be in your hands.
