Many people look for a dumpster rental near them. They find a company in their area, and then they call without thinking about all of the logistics involved. It usually works out without any problems. But for some people, not planning can quickly turn into a headache when they find out that they don’t have an ideal place to put the dumpster.
If you need to order a roll-off dumpster, there are some things you should do first. You need to ensure you have sufficient space and the correct permits. It would help to make sure the surface was ready and clear. And it would be best if you thought about when the dumpster would be delivered and picked up.
Space and Permits Needed for a Dumpster
When choosing a place for your dumpster, think about more than just the space for the dumpster itself. You will also need some extra space around it so that people can walk past it without having to go around it. The clearance above the dumpster should be at least 20 feet so that the dumpster can be taken off and put on the truck without hitting anything. Be careful of low-hanging branches and wires.
If you want to put a dumpster on a public road or walkway, you will need a permit from your local government. It is not usually tough to get, but you must do it so that you don’t get fined. There are specific laws about dumpsters that you need to be aware of in Florida. It may also be an excellent idea to let your neighbors know if you will have a dumpster on the road near them.
Optimal Surface Conditions for Dumpster Drop-Off
Dumpsters can be placed on various surfaces, but the surface should have a slope of no more than 15 degrees. You should also clean the ice and snow surface, so it is not slippery. The drier the texture, the easier it will be to place the dumpster accurately.
People often wonder if the placement of a dumpster will damage the surface it is placed on. The answer is that there can be some damage, but it can be reduced or eliminated with proper planning. If you put a dumpster on grass, the grass underneath it will die. And if the grass becomes wet, the dumpster may sink into the ground a bit, leaving behind marks. You can reduce these impressions by placing plywood under the dumpster, but the grass will still die.
If you have to position a dumpster on pavement, plywood can help prevent damage. The dumpster may scrape and leave marks on the pavement. The weight of the dumpster may also leave impressions on the pavement. If you use plywood, it will help protect against both types of damage.
The dumpster delivery and pickup schedule are flexible.
Most deliveries and pickups are done during work hours on Monday through Friday. However, if you need something delivered or picked up at a different time, we may be able to do that for you. For example, if you need a dumpster delivered to a whole parking lot during work hours, we might be able to deliver it after hours when the lot is clear.
