Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need a Permit for My 40 Yard Dumpster Rental in Atlanta?

Because of the size of these dumpsters, the answer is likely yes. 40 yard bins are our largest size and will not fit on most standard driveways. Dumpsters that cannot fit on private property will likely need street placement, which requires permits. You can contact your local City of Atlanta to get more information on permits, and we also have our own permit info on our site.

Can I Schedule My 40 Yard Dumpster for Delivery at a Certain Time?

As much as we wish we could accommodate all delivery time frame requests, Discount Dumpster is unable to guarantee any specific times. Our windows are 6 AM - 6 PM, Monday through Friday. You are welcome to place requests for certain times, just know it isn't necessarily guaranteed.

Can I Put Electronics in My 40 Yard Dumpster?

In short, no. Electronics and batteries are considered hazardous materials and landfills will not accept them. You can take old electronics to an e-waste recycling services for proper disposal.

Can I Fill the 40 Yard Dumpster Rental Over the Top?

Overfilling a dumpster can prove hazardous during transportation, for any dumpster size. Due to this, our haulers will refuse to pickup any dumpster that is filled too high. Once pickup is refused, you will be charged a costly trip fee on top of your rental costs.
