Dumpster Rental Permits

We begin with the need for a rental permit since it is one of the most asked by possible customers. Getting a dumpster rental permit all depends on your municipality and the ownership of your property. You might obtain a rental permit when you are not the owner of the proposed location for the requested dumpster, but it all depends.


This is a very generic name used to describe movable garbage containers. Most of the time, it is called “roll-off dumpster,” “rental dumpster,” or “roll-off bins.” They’re all designed in the same way to be lifted up by a particular truck that empties out the content at the landfill.


This term is easy, and it mans Construction and Demolition. C&D Projects are expected to generate waste like bricks, concrete, gravel, and other types of materials.


Overage is the term that has to do with weight allowances of the allowed amount of space per dumpster. The weight allowance isn’t ever the same for all companies, but it is compulsory to abide by the limit given by every dumpster provider. When you do exceed the limitations given by the provider, it is called “overage,” and you will then be penalized. This is an essential dumpster rental term to know.

Dump Fee

This is a fee that dumpster providers incur at landfills, and it is not constant either.

Hauling Fee

This is a fee that is payable by the customer for the rental duration and the dumpster pickup services rendered by the primary provider.
