Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need a Permit for My 40 Yard Dumpster Rental in Houston?

The likely answer is yes. 40 yard dumpsters are the largest size in our inventory. These dumpsters usually won't fit on a standard driveway. Unless you can place this bin on your property, you will need to secure a permit from the City of Houston. 

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

We cannot guarantee any specific times of day for delivery or pickup. Our windows are 6 AM  - 6 PM, Monday through Friday. You are welcome to put in a request and our team will do everything possible to accommodate your needs.

Can I Put Electronics in My 40 Yard Dumpster?

Electronics are not allowed in any of our dumpsters. They are considered hazardous waste, and must be taken to a proper e-recycling facility for disposal. 

What Happens if My Dumpster is Overweight?

Overweight dumpsters will see charges tacked on per extra ton. For example: if you rent a 15 yard dumpster at a weight limit of 2 tons and the dumpster has a weight content of 3 tons, you will be charged a fee for that extra ton. To prevent overweight charges, we recommend monitoring what you're throwing away and how much of it. Certain materials will weigh more than others, so its good not to get caught off guard.
