Sometimes it can be difficult to keep your home organized, especially if you tend to keep items just in case they come in handy one day. Most of the stuff you may never use or need again gets stashed in the basement or the garage. It would be nice to declutter that space for a better use, and it would be great to park your car in the safety of your garage.
Maybe there’s an empty lot next door or nearby where others have tossed all kinds of trash, some of which could be dangerous, especially to children. Perhaps you just want to do a little yard cleanup, paint the porch, or redo the landscaping to brighten things up a bit. It really doesn’t take much to make your community look better and be safer.
It’s a great time to get together with your neighbors to take care of what needs to be done. Many hands make short work of a lot of things. Talk to your Highland Park neighbors and the folks at the Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency to see if you can get a group project going. Once you have a plan, make trash management easy with a quick call to Discount Dumpster. We’ll help you choose the right container and delivery it promptly.

With a dumpster, you’ll have a 14-day rental period to access the container and fill it with trash, construction debris, and unwanted clutter. You don’t have to rush your project. An on-site dumpster is almost always cheaper than a junk hauling service, especially when you have enough trash to require many expensive trips. Unless you have only a few items that you can’t put into your regular trash, a dumpster is a better choice for you.
The rental cost depends on your location, the size of the dumpster you order, and the weight of the waste you put in it. It can be challenging to know how much something weighs, but our team members have the experience to help you estimate the weight of your trash. They can make sure you get the right-sized roll off bin for the job. No project is too big or too small for a rental dumpster.
If price is an issue, consider talking to your neighbors, organizing a block cleanup, and splitting the rental cost. Remember, if you’re sharing your dumpster with your neighbors, be sure everyone knows what cannot go in it. Discount Dumpster can provide a list of prohibited items.
If you can fit the dumpster you order in your driveway or on your property, you usually don’t need a permit. If it has to sit on the street, you may need a right-of-way permit, but those are usually inexpensive. The best thing to do is to call the City of Highland Park at 313-252-0050.
Congratulations! Highland Park has a strong record of recycling. In fact, 40% of your waste is recycled, which is above the national average. Still, hazardous waste remains a problem, and it cannot go into your dumpster because it destroys the landfill areas and can leach into the groundwater. The following things are considered hazardous waste: pesticides, fertilizers, electronics, mercury thermometers, medical waste, car parts, railroad ties, and paint. Some of these things, such as electronics, can go to a recycling center. You may be able to contact a collection service for appliances that contain Freon, such as refrigerators.
For information on the landfill closest to you and hazardous waste restrictions, please contact the City of Highland Park at 313-252-0050. You can also call Discount Dumpster if you have questions about placing certain items in your roll off bin.
