Our large dumpsters handle the biggest of jobs, which can take some time. We offer a standard 7 to 14-day rental period. To ensure you can fill up your dumpster in that time, schedule for your delivery to start when you are ready to start discarding trash and debris. If this standard rental period is not enough to complete your job, we may be able to extend the rental period for a prorated rate. Alternatively, we can arrange for a swap of your dumpster with a new container, giving you another rental period to complete your job.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will a 40 Yard Dumpster be Big Enough for My Project?

We certainly hope so! Our 40 yard bins are the largest sizes available in our inventory, so if your project is too big for a 40 yard you may need some help! 40 yard dumpsters are better suited for the largest commercial projects such as construction and demolition work. We wouldn't recommend a 40 yard dumpster for residential work (unless you have a massive property to remodel).

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

Discount Dumpster cannot guarantee any specific delivery times. Our windows for delivery and pickup are 6 AM - 6 PM, Monday through Friday.

Can I Put Electronics in My 40 Yard Dumpster?

No! Electronics and batteries are considered hazardous and will not break down properly in a landfill. All electronic items must be taken to an e-recycling facility for proper disposal. 

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

You should never fill a dumpster past its fill line. An overfilled dumpster will not be picked up by our hauler, as doing so puts motorists and pedestrians at risk of getting hit by flying trash! Any pickup rejection will automatically add a costly trip fee to your final bill.
