The Development Services Department for the City of Des Moines works with homeowners and contractors on any permitting needs. Your best option is to have your rental dumpster container delivered onto your private property. If that is not possible, we also offer street delivery. In this case, you will need to consult with the city to determine if a permit is needed. This is particularly important if the dumpster could impede traffic through the area.
A rental dumpster on-site is a convenient way to dispose of your trash and debris, but you should not toss anything and everything into the container. There are regulations that govern local landfills and prohibit certain materials. Many banned items can be taken to a hazardous waste or recycling facility instead.
Local regulation limit what can be disposed of. Banned items include:
There may be other prohibited items, so check with us before tossing anything questionable into your rental dumpster.
You may be wondering if it is safe to have a dumpster delivered onto your driveway. Some homeowners are concerned about damage to the concrete surface. In general, the chance of damage is small, but can occur if the driveway is cracked, older, or weak in areas. If you have concerns, you can protect your driveway by laying plywood down on your driveway. This will spread out the weight and provide a barrier between the metal dumpster and the concrete. It is also a good way to ensure the dumpster container does not scrape the concrete. Do not overload the dumpster, as excess weight could cause your concrete to crack.
Our rental terms include a weight allowance for each size dumpster. When your dumpster is weighed at the landfill, we cannot determine if any of the weight is from water accumulation in your dumpster. To prevent having excess water increase the weight of your dumpster, take care to keep water out while you are working. If you are expecting rainstorms or snow, you can cover your dumpster with a large tarp to keep water out. Much of the excess water will drain off when the dumpster is tipped onto the truck, so any excess water should not significantly impact the weight of the dumpster.
Each size dumpster container has a specific weight limit. The container is weighed at the landfill. The hauling truck is weighed as it enters the grounds and then when it leaves with an empty container. The difference is the weight of the trash load. If this weight exceeds the standard weight allowance for that size container, you could be charged an over-weight fee. If you anticipate disposing of heavy material such as concrete, tile flooring, rocks, or roofing shingles, let us know so we can get the appropriate container to accommodate the heavier weight.
Metro Waste Authority of Des Moines offers a couple of options for large appliance disposal. You can pay to have an extra pickup for your appliance by purchasing large item disposal stickers. You can then call to arrange for a pickup day. Alternatively, you can self-haul your large appliances to one of three locations: Metro Park East Landfill, Metro Park West Landfill, or Metro Hazardous Waste Drop-Off locations. Appliances that are accepted include freezers, refrigerators, ranges, air conditioners, water heaters, furnaces, washers/dryers, and more.
Most communities ban old mattresses from their landfills. They not only take up a large amount of room, but they are better recycled than tossed away. They are often contaminated and can be considered a biohazard. Discount Dumpster asks that you do not dispose of your used mattress in your rental dumpster. Instead, you can take it to a household hazardous waste facility in your community. Some community organizations will accept used mattresses, but only if they are in good condition.
Tires are best recycled, and many landfills ban old tires. Thus, they are prohibited from disposal in your rental dumpster. We are sometimes able to offer tire disposal as a separate service. You can have your tires picked up at the same time as your dumpster for a fee of $50 per tire. We ask that you keep the tires separate until pickup. If you’d like to use this service, please request this when you order your dumpster and arrange for delivery. At pickup, our operator will place the tires in the dumpster before hauling it away for delivery to a recycling facility.
