Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need a Permit for a 20 Yard Dumpster Rental in Chicago?

That depends. A 20 yard is what we like to call a "middling" dumpster size. Its not too small yet not too large, which makes it perfect f0r larger residential projects and smaller-scale commercial work. Due to this, there are times when the dumpster may need street placement. A permit from the City of Chicago will be needed in this case. Also, even if the 20 yard dumpster fits on your property, you will need to make sure the local HOA approves of your placement spot. 

Can I Get My 20 Yard Dumpster First Thing in the Morning?

Discount Dumpster cannot make any guarantees in regards to specific drop off or pickup times for dumpsters. We have a standard delivery window of 6 AM - 6 PM, Monday through Friday. We are more than happy to take any requests you have for specific times, so feel free to leave a request and our staff will work as hard as they can to accommodate you!  

Will a 20 Yard Bin be Big Enough for my Project in Chicago?

20 yard dumpsters are great for larger residential projects and small commercial work. 20 yards can handle more debris for projects like landscaping, home remodels, and roofing work. These dumpsters are also perfect for commercial projects like office cleanouts or strip-mall renovations. We wouldn't advise using a 20 yard for heavy duty construction and demolition work, however.  

What Happens if My 20 Yard Dumpster is Overfilled or Overweight?

Any dumpster left overfilled on the day of pickup will result in a pickup rejection by the hauler. Transporting a dumpster filled over the top is a safety hazard and cannot be permitted by local regulations. After pickup has been rejected, a costly trip fee will be charged to you.

A dumpster over its weight limit will result in additional fees once the bin is weighed at the transfer station. These fees will be charged to you per extra ton.
