Our flat rate pricing substantially limits additional fees, but there are a few ways to be charged more. If your container is overloaded past the fill line and can’t be picked up, weighs over its granted weight allowance, or the pickup is blocked or not possible, additional fees may be incurred. Generally, dumpster trucks cost about $100 per hour to operate. We’re always building a constant puzzle of where to pick up a dumpster that we can dump at the landfill, and then drop off at the next location. When a dumpster is overloaded or overweight and can’t be picked up, it throws our delivery schedule out of sync and costs driver time and fuel.

We also get charged at the landfill by the ton, when the truck is weighed on the on the way in, and weighed on the way out. If the landfill charges us more than our weight allowance, we pass that cost on to the customer.

How Can You Incur Additional Fees?
