Dumpster Rental Permits

We start the need for rental permits because it is one of the most asked questions by all potential customers. Getting a dumpster rental permit really depends on your municipality and the ownership of your current property. You might get a rental permit when you are not the owner of the proposed location for your dumpster.


This is a generic name used to describe any kind of movable garbage containers, but you probably already knew this. Most times, it is known as a “roll-off dumpster,” “rental dumpster or “roll-off bin.” They’re all designed to be lifted away by a special truck that will empty the content at the landfill or dump.


This garbage rental term means Construction and Demolition. Any C&D Projects are expected to generate waste like concrete, gravel, bricks, or other similar materials.


This term has everything to do with weight allowances or the allotted amount of space that is used per dumpster. The weight allowance isn’t the same for all companies, but it is compulsory to abide by the limit provided by each dumpster rental provider. If you exceed the limitations given by the company, it is known as “overage,” and you will definitely be penalized.

Hauling Fees

This is a customer’s fee payable for the rental duration or dumpster pickup services rendered by the dumpster rental provider.

Dump Fee

This is the fee that is incurred by dumpster providers at the landfills, and it isn’t constant.

Hazardous Waste

The classification of hazardous waste really depends on the regulatory agencies and local laws of your municipality. However, wastes are classified as unsafe when they have any potentially dangerous characteristics, like chemicals, explosives, flammables, liquids, or other harmful materials.
