Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need a Permit for a 15 Yard Dumpster Rental in Chicago?

A 15 yard dumpster can easily fit on most residential driveways. Therefore, the City of Chicago will not likely need a permit if the dumpster can fit neatly on your property. Streets and public right-of-ways will need permits. However, if your property is under the jurisdiction of an HOA (homeowners association), then you will need to secure their permission first. 

Can I Get My 15 Yard Dumpster First Thing in the Morning?

We would love to say yes! However, Discount Dumpster cannot guarantee any specific times of day for delivery or pickup. Our standard delivery and pickup windows are 6 AM - 6 PM, Monday through Friday. You are welcome to request certain times for delivery or pickup, and our staff will do the best they can to accommodate your needs.  

Will a 15 Yard Bin be Big Enough for my Project in Chicago?

A 15 yard dumpster is one of our smallest sizes. We recommend using a 15 yard for residential projects primarily. 15 yard dumpsters shouldn't be used for heavy-duty construction or demolition work, to avoid overweight charges. 

What Happens if My 15 Yard Dumpster is Overfilled or Overweight?

Overfilled dumpsters will not be picked up by our hauler come the designated pickup day. Doing so risks debris falling off the back of the truck, which could injure motorists or pedestrians. In the case of a pickup rejection, you will be charged a costly trip fee. 

Overweight dumpsters will have additional fees added per extra ton over the weight limit. Monitor what you're throwing away and how much to avoid overweight charges.
