Types of dumpster rentals 

  • Roll-off Dumpsters

Roll-off dumpsters are built in large sizes, and the largest size is up to 40 yards. You can load these types of dumpsters in two different ways; you can load them up with a winch and sled or with a robotic arm that carries the bin onto the truck’s bed. These dumpsters are ideal for taking out trash and junk in construction projects, remodels, and landscaping. The size of these dumpsters gives you all the space you need to fill it up with a lot of trash before you empty it. That means you’ll have no reason to pause your project.

Sizes Available:

  • 10 Yards
  • 15 Yards
  • 20 Yards
  • 30 Yards
  • 40 Yards
  • Residential Dumpsters

Residential dumpsters are like construction dumpsters, but they’re designed for use in the home. When you have any home projects, such as renovating your home’s exterior and interior renovations, junk removal, flooring removal, and decluttering, you’ll need a residential dumpster. Like construction dumpsters, they can provide temporary solutions to storing your junk and garbage till your service provider comes to empty it.

There are different sizes of residential dumpster storage capacities. You can get a residential dumpster from as low as a 10-yard container; this one can fit comfortably in your driveway.

  • Construction Dumpsters

A construction dumpster, as the name implies, is mainly seen on construction sites. They are designed to be large and open-topped so that trash can be easily disposed of. These dumpsters can serve different purposes, and construction companies usually treat them for temporary use.

Construction dumpsters can also be called roll-offs because of the wheels below them. The wheels make it easy to move the containers from one position to the other. Construction dumpsters have different sizes ranging from 10-40 cubic yard capacities. They’re the best option for many cleanup projects like demolitions, roof tear-offs, building remodeling, and yard waste.

Also, these construction dumpsters are designed in different forms and for specific purposes. A dirt dumpster can handle yard debris and soil compound, while specific dumpsters hold clean concrete, brick, and asphalt.

Do I need a permit for my dumpster rental in New Orleans?

You only need a permit for your dumpster rental in New Orleans if you place it directly on a street, sidewalk, or public property. These are commonly called street or right-of-way permits and are given by your city’s public works or building department.

If you place your dumpster in a private space like your driveway, you will not require a street permit. If you belong to the homeowners association in your neighborhood, you may need to get permission from them before you place your dumpster on the street.

How to Obtain a Dumpster Permit

The process of getting a permit varies according to different cities. In some cities, the dumpster service provider must obtain a permit. In this case, you don’t have to go through the hassle of getting one yourself. In other places, it’s the customer’s responsibility to obtain the permit. 

If you need a dumpster permit, contact your public works department and homeowners association. If you have to be the one to obtain a street permit in your city, then reach out to your city’s public works or building department. They will give you the appropriate form to fill out. Depending on your location, this process can be done online or in person.

Also, the time to process your permit may vary across different cities. In light of this, you should apply for a permit for at least a week before renting a dumpster. Some applications may be completed in a day, while others will need time to enforce no parking zone and create space to keep your dumpster on the street. You should also check with your homeowner’s association and cross-check if they have any laws regarding keeping your dumpster on the street or in your driveway.

You should also let your dumpster service know when you’ve received your permit in case they need a copy of it before they deliver the dumpster 

Why can’t I put certain items into my roll-off dumpster?

Although roll-off dumpsters are for taking out trash and junk, however, there are some items you should never put in them. You cannot put hazardous materials in a dumpster because they are not safe for the environment and the community at large. These hazardous materials include flammable, sealed tanks, wet paints, and other dangerous chemicals. Below are other items that should never go into a dumpster:

  • Mattresses

Technically, you can’t fit mattresses in a roll-off dumpster. They can easily be replaced in the dumpster. However, it is better and eco-friendly if they’re recycled. Apart from being eco-friendly, mattresses fill up landfills too quickly. For this reason, many manufacturers are offering recycling services. You can take your old mattresses to them for them to be recycled. Mattresses can also be used for other purposes, such as clothing and carpeting. So instead of disposing of it, you can take it to a nearby bulk waste collection company. You can either do that or give it out for charity.

  • Used Tires And Other Heavy Materials

It is prohibited to throw tires into dumpsters in some states. These items take up a lot of landfill space; also, large items like bricks, concrete, and asphalt are unsuitable for dumpsters. It is not ideal for dumpster companies or landfill personnel to take extra-large materials like these from dumpsters to landfills. Heavy materials can also reduce the lifespan of the dumpster. If you live in an environment with a scheduled time for disposing of large items, then dispose of your heavy items at those times.

  • Batteries

Electronics and batteries should be disposed of properly but not in a roll-off dumpster because batteries contain lead, mercury, cadmium, and other harmful components. These elements are hazardous to the environment, and their effect on wildlife and the environment can be immense. Also, before you dispose of any electronics, remember to remove the batteries. You can drop off old batteries at any local retailer that makes use of old batteries.

  • Electronics And Appliances

Electronics, computers, and accessories should not be thrown in dumpsters. Your old cell phones, computers, and tablets still have some valuable components that can meet specific needs in the hands of the right person. Also, they contain the same chemicals found in batteries and are harmful to the environment. In some states, electronics are prohibited in landfills, and dumpster companies have to pay a fine if they’re caught disposing of electronics in landfills. You can find retailers who need your old electronic products.

  • Flammable Materials

Flammable materials should never be disposed of in a dumpster. Combustible materials should be separated when cleaning out the home or doing house renovation. Flammable materials include aerosols, paints, lighters, cleaning products, and automotive fluids. These types of materials can be harmful to the environment if disposed of in a dumpster.

Is Street Placement Allowed for My Dumpster?

In some places, you can place your dumpsters on the streets, and in other places, you need to get a permit before you can do such. You need to inquire about your community if you’re new there and ensure that you’re not breaking any rules by placing your dumpster on the street. Also, this will let you know if you need a permit or not.
