Preparing for Your Dumpster Rental Drop Off

Before your dumpster rental arrives, it is good to have the logistics worked out as it can save you time and trouble during delivery. The preparation is simple and your dumpster rental company, Circle J Roll-Offs, can assist in answering any questions in advance. Here are some tips to consider before your rental arrives.

Location & Placement

The best area to place a dumpster would be a hard, flat surface – ideally concrete or asphalt parking lot, street, or driveway. But in some cases, these options aren’t available so it’s good to discuss this with your rental company. Some dumpster rental companies have restrictions on where they can place a dumpster so it doesn’t hurt to check and see if your proposed location is a feasible option. Several examples of generally prohibited placement include:

  • Along a city street – this often requires a dumpster permit prior to drop off
  • On a hill – the dumpster could shift
  • On soft or sandy surfaces – the dumpster could get stuck

Cleaning Up

In order to have a quick delivery, it’s important to have a clear space for the truck to drop off the dumpster. When cleaning, remember that most roll-off trucks need a lot of space to unload the dumpster so clear out plenty of space. Be sure to remove any items in the way including vehicles, trash, fences, or any other debris in the drop off area.

Damage Prevention

Choosing an appropriate location and clearing an area in advance help to reduce the risk of damage to your property, but there are other ways to prevent damage as well. Some dumpster rental companies will take precautions to protect your property but not all, so it’s better to prepare in advance.

One way to protect your property from damage is placing boards beneath the contact points where the dumpster touches the ground on your driveway, street, or parking lot. This will reduce the risk of damage to the concrete due to the weight of the load. Be sure to put the boards down before the dumpster is dropped off. Please note that most dumpsters will not harm your driveway, street, or parking lot, but in cases of heavier loads, it is better to take precautions.
