Dumpster Information & FAQ

The dumpster rental process is full of unique choices that can make a world of difference in saving valuable time and money. Size, price, location, and waste type - these are all considerations one should take into account before making a final decision. Below is a short list of questions we get frequently from our dumpster customers. If you feel you need additional assistance, please do not hesitate to call our location in your area.

Frequently Asked Dumpster Questions

Q: Are there any items I can not put into my container?

A: Absolutely. For the most part, only solid waste material is allowed to be disposed of in the dumpster or roll-off container. A few items that are not allowed are:

  • Radioactive substances.
  • Volatile compounds or liquids.
  • Highly flammable material.
  • Explosives (e.g. fireworks).
  • Biomedical supplies.
  • Infectious materials.
  • Toxic or hazardous substances.

In addition free liquids are not permitted in the containers. Based on your location, different laws may apply to you. Make sure you understand fully what is permissible to dispose of if you think there is any question about it. Fully understand the user agreement before renting.

Q: Are there materials that can be disposed of for an extra fee?

A: There are some questionable materials that can be disposed of in a roll-off container for an extra fee. Generally these items contain Freon (such as AC units and refrigerators) or are items that are not disposed of in landfills (i.e. tires and televisions).

Q: Can I get my dumpster today?

A: Generally, the time needed for dumpster delivery or roll-off container delivery is 24 hours. However, depending on the situation and supplies, you may be able to get your dumpster within just a few hours.

Q: Is a permit or license required?

A: A dumpster or roll-off container that is placed on public property (i.e. a street or parking lot) must have a permit. Additionally, some municipalities require you to obtain one for placement on private property as well. These rules are generally put in place so that neighbors don't need to deal with dumpsters that may be an eyesore for extended periods of time. Confirm your local laws before moving forward.

Q: What is the difference between "Clay Pavers & Concrete Pavers"?

A: Clay pavers are made with real clay that is mixed, extruded and baked in a kiln at very high temperatures and concrete pavers are made with a special blend of concrete and coloring that is compacted at very high pressures in a special machine.

Q: Which type of paver is better?

A: There is very little difference between pavers in general. The important difference is the maker of the pavers. Paving materials can vary from one manufacturer to the next. The qualities that make a paver perfect are its compressive strength, water absorption rate and abrasion index.

Q: What happens if I have to do a repair job below the paving? Does it leave an unsightly patch mark?

A: No, that is one of the long-term benefits to installing Flexible paving. Because all interlocking paving is flexible it can also resist cracking. This is especially beneficial in California which has very expansive soils.

Q: Can you do any other types of specialty masonry?

A: Yes, our tradesmen are fully trained masonry professionals. We specialize in matching almost any material and seamlessly installing it so that the repair is undetectable in most cases.

Q: What does "Interlocking Paving" mean?

A: Interlocking paving is a misleading term. What actually constitutes interlocking is really a dynamic function containing three different components. They are "rotational interlock" (resistance to tipping) "horizontal interlock" (resistance to spreading) "vertical interlock (resistance to sinking)". So, that means for lasting quality you need good containment, good sub base and proper paver thickness. Thicker pavers for driveways thinner pavers for patios.

Q: After you're done Paving the work surfaces should I Seal It?

A: Yes, it protects it from leaky cars that might leave oil stains and it stays cleaner for much longer if you seal it right away before it has a chance to get stained. Remember when it's sealed it only takes a hose to clean it off. We use breathable type sealers that protect against just about anything.

Q: What can be done to restore ugly faded old concrete?

A: In most situations faded concrete can be renewed by recoloring it using various Tints & Stains.
