Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the more common questions we receive. Please call us if you have any other questions about our dumpster rental services.

How Do I Rent a Dumpster?

The process is very easy. Call us for current dumpster rental cost for your delivery location. We charge a complete container fee which includes delivery, rental, and one time pick-up of your container.  The material you put in the dumpster will be weighed on a scale and charged on a per/ton disposal rate that is prorated.  In other words, you only pay for the exact weight that you have in the box.  For your convenience, we can take your order up to a week in advance of your project.

What are the dimensions of the containers?

We have 4 container sizes available for temporary dumpster rental.

  • 10 yard container:  12′ L, 7′ W, 4′ H
  • 14 yard container:  13′ L, 7.5′ W, 4′ H
  • 20 yard container:  18′ L, 7.5′ W, 4′ H
  • 30 yard container:  18.5′ L, 7.5′ W, 6′ H

We require a 9′ width of space for access and proper box setup.

What type of material can go in a dumpster?

There are a lot of items banned from the landfill. In some cases we can make special arrangements for clean concrete or organic waste loads. For a more complete list of items not accepted please visit our Order A Dumpster page or see the Dane County Landfill listing.

  • Grass, leaves, and brush
  • Oil and chemicals
  • Paint (empty cans are accepted with their lids removed)
  • Larger appliances
  • Fluorescent bulbs and fixtures
  • Batteries
  • Hazardous and infectious materials, including their containers
  • 55 gallon barrels and drums
  • Computers and TVs
  • Electronics, including printers, VCRs, DVD players
  • Recyclables (State laws require everyone recycle. Contact your local recycling office for specifics.)
  • Asphalt shingles
Can you place a container on the street?

Many municipalities do allow placement on the street. Please contact your local municipality to determine if a permit is required.

Do you provide labor services to clean out a property?

We can only provide the dumpster. Please contact our office for suggestions on companies that can provide this type of service for you.

If I am using a container for a roofing project can I put any other types of waste in the container?

All asphalt shingles are now required to be recycled. Therefore, only roofing and roofing related material is allowed in the container.

Do I need to call in for removal?

Yes, you must call and arrange the removal of the dumpster. Please know we must have clear access to dumpster. It’s important to make sure no vehicles or debris is in the way of the dumpster, and in winter months, any snow and ice must be removed to avoid trip charges.

How long can I have the dumpster on site? What if I need to extend the rental?

We’ll work hard to try to accommodate your dumpster needs. Based on the large demand for dumpsters, especially during the warmer weather, we may need to limit the time allowed for each rental. Additional rental day-charges could apply. Please feel free to discuss your questions and concerns with our office.

What if I need to change my dumpster order?

We certainly will do our best to accommodate your needs, but once the job has commenced, there may be additional charges if the order is changed.

What size dumpster do I need for my project?

To help determine the size you may need, calculate the volume of your load. Here’s how: Multiply the Width in feet x the Height in feet x the Length in feet and divide by 27 to get cubic yards. Keep in mind that when you load the dumpster larger pieces will make a difference in the ability to fit all items into the dumpster. All items must be contained within the dumpster level full.
