Frequently Asked Questions

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

Permits are required by the City of Houston if your dumpster needs placement on a street or other public area. Private property placements do not require city permits. If your driveway is large enough to fit a 20 yard dumpster, then you can skip the permit process. However, we advise you to check with any HOAs that operate in your neighborhood to make sure placing the dumpster on your driveway won't violate any guidelines.

Can I Put Electronics in My 20 Yard Dumpster?

Electronics are strictly prohibited in all dumpster sizes. Items like electronics and batteries are classified as hazardous waste, primarily due to their toxic components that won't break down over time in a landfill. All electronic devices must be taken to specialized recycling plants for disposal.

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

A 20 yard dumpster is an ideal "middling" size. This means it can be used for both residential and small commercial projects. This dumpster size is bigger than average, so it would be best to reserve a dumpster like this for larger scale residential work or smaller scale commercial projects.

What Happens if My 20 Yard Dumpster is Overfilled?

Any dumpster that is overfilled will not be picked up by our hauler. Doing so is against local laws, as debris can fall off the truck during transport. Once pickup has been rejected by us, you will then be charged a costly trip fee on top of your rental expenses.
