How Long Can I Rent a 20 Yard Dumpster in Kansas City?

A typical dumpster rental period is 7 to 14 days. When you call to order your dumpster, we’ll discuss your project with you. If you need a longer rental period, we can customize your quote to get you what you need. In general, you’ll have two options: either extend the rental period or provide for a second dumpster to complete the job. Your dumpster may be eligible for an extension of the rental period if we have availability. In that case, there would be a charge for the extra days. If we cannot extend your rental, we can arrange for a swap-out of your dumpster for a new one with an additional 7 to 14 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

A permit should only be needed from Kansas City if you need to place your dumpster on a street or any other public-right-of-way. Kansas City authorities usually don't require a permit for dumpster placements on private property. However, if your property is governed by any kind of HOA, you will need to secure the HOA's permission first before you can proceed with placement.

Can I Get My 20 Yard Dumpster First Thing in the Morning?

As much as we would love to say yes, we cannot unfortunately. Discount Dumpster can't guarantee any specific delivery or pickup times. Our usual delivery/pickup window is 6 AM - 6 PM, Monday through Friday. You are welcome to put in a request for specific times and our staff will do their absolute best to accommodate the request, if possible.

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

20 yard dumpsters are perfect "middling" sizes. This means they aren't too small or too big, and can be utilized for both residential and commercial projects alike. However, we wouldn't recommend, a 20 yard dumpster for simple junk clearing or heavy-duty construction work. A 20 yard would be best suited for a larger residential project such as a remodel or smaller commercial project like cleaning out an office or strip-mall.  

What Happens if My 20 Yard Dumpster is Overfilled or Overweight?

A dumpster that is overfilled will not be picked up by our haulers come the day of pickup. This is due to safety reasons, as an overfilled dumpster can have its contents fall onto roads and streets. This puts other motorists and pedestrians at risk of injury. If a dumpster is overfilled, the pickup will be rejected and you will be charged a costly trip fee for our driver's effort.

An overweight dumpster will have additional charges applied per extra ton once the dumpster is weighed at the landfill. You will be responsible for the extra charges.
