Most frequent questions and answers about roll-off dumpster rentals.

A roll-off dumpster is a sturdy, large trash container made of strong steel. Its rectangular shape and open top make it easy to load with junk and debris at the location. These dumpsters are perfect for residential cleanup, renovations, demolitions, or construction sites. They get their name, “roll off dumpsters,” because a truck delivers them and rolls them off the back where they’re needed.

Dumpsters will dispose of most not-hazardous materials such as construction debris, concrete, gravel, cement, siding, roofing, drywall, wood, household junk, appliances, furniture, green waste yard trimmings sod, rocks, mixed cardboard, paper scrap metal and dirt. Heavy materials may be restricted to certain size containers because the weight would exceed DOT regulations and be unsafe to haul.

We DO NOT accept hazardous waste, industrial waste, chemical products, oil filters, herbicides & pesticides, radioactive material, solvents, paint (except completely dried latex paint cans, no liquids) other flammable liquids, aerosol cans, propane tanks, motor oil, transmission ,oil. lubricating, hydraulic oil, oil filters, contaminated oils mixed with solvents, gasoline, etc. antifreeze, petroleum- contaminated soil/lead paint chips, tires, batteries, microwaves, fluorescent tubes, railroad ties, medical waste, asbestos, animals, barrels, all liquids, flammable, toxic and/or hazardous materials, thinners, lacquers, asbestos, batteries, infectious waste, contaminated soils, fuels, inks, resins, car batteries food wastes, adhesives or industrial drums, or “Special” waste, as defined by Local, State, and Federal laws or regulations.

We can pick up refrigerators, freezer units, and air conditioners at an additional cost.

For general waste, including household and construction waste, you may fill the dumpster to the top. You may fill the dumpster completely full but the material must not exceed the top edge of the dumpster; nothing can be sticking out of the top. We must be able to safely tarp the container and ensure that no material will fly out of the container as it is being hauled on the roadways. For dense materials, such as gravel, dirt, concrete, plaster, brick, block, etc. you may fill the dumpster to the lower line marked on the outside of dumpster. Filling past this point could cause unsafe overweight conditions, and you may be required to remove material before we will remove the dumpster. Before placing any of these heavier materials in any containers, please review the terms and conditions of your agreement and contact customer service rep for guidance on how much is allowed in the container. Do not fill the container above lower line level with these materials. Excess debris MUST be removed by the customer before the container will be removed from the site. Customers will be charged for His Ground LLC Dumpster Service to make a second trip to collect a dumpster that was uncollectible.

We highly recommend that the customer protect any surface where the dumpster is going to be placed with a sheet of plywood.

It is preferred to have someone onsite for delivery or removal of the container. The driver will use their best judgment and place the container in the safest accessible area when delivering the container. If you have specific placement instructions we suggest that you be at the location when the driver arrives at your drop off site. If you aren’t present at the time of delivery and aren’t satisfied with the placement of the dumpster, you may call customer service and ask for the Dumpster to be relocated. Relocation fees will apply. For removal; customer agrees to provide unobstructed access to the equipment on the scheduled pick up day; if the equipment is inaccessible, the customer is subject to additional pick up charges, as terms and conditions apply.
