If you have many items that are not recyclable and want the convenience of working around your own schedule, a 14-day rental from Discount Dumpster would work best for you. You can declutter your basement and garage and have all your trash taken away to the landfill in just one trip. You’ve got plenty of time to call a friend if you need help with heavy or bulky items. Our collection times are flexible if you need to reschedule your pickup.
If you have appliances to get rid of, they can’t go into a dumpster but may be recyclable. A junk hauler can take them to a recycling center for you.
At Discount Dumpster, we don’t surprise you with any hidden charges. Our team will give you an accurate quote that includes all local taxes and fees. The overall cost is based on the weight of your waste, the area in which you live, and the dumpster size you rent. Tell us about your project so you get the right container, and keep your waste at the fill line so you don’t get any overage charges.
As long as your dumpster can be placed on your property, you should not be required to obtain a right-of-way permit. However, if the dumpster is placed on the street or another public right-of-way, a permit will be needed. For the most up-to-date information, please contact local officials at 757-385-4211. If you reside in a neighborhood governed by a homeowners’ association, check the bylaws for any restrictions on dumpster placement. Also, placements are not allowed on any yards, dirt, soft ground, or grass.
The Environmental Protection Agency regulates what can be put in landfills. These rules regulate what cannot go into your dumpster. Hazardous waste is prohibited from disposal in a rental dumpster; it’s dangerous and should be disposed of properly. The following items are not allowed in the dumpster:
For more information and a complete list of what cannot be put in your container, please contact Discount Dumpster or local organizations.
If you are loading heavy construction material into your dumpster, it can exceed the weight limit even when it is below the fill line. We recommend discussing your project with our friendly team to be sure you get the right container for your needs.
If you find that you are getting close to the fill line and may go over, please try to rearrange the debris in your dumpster. A dumpster that is filled to the top is dangerous to transport and may exceed the weight limit of your rental plan. The driver may have to unload some of your material and leave it for you to manage later. Some overfilled bins are not suitable for pickup at all. Please keep your content at or below the fill line.
Concrete, asphalt shingles, bricks, and dirt weigh more than wood and may require you to get a larger dumpster with a higher weight allowance. Heavy construction debris weighs about 1 ton per yard, so be aware of what you are disposing of. A load over 10 tons cannot be transported in a safe manner.
Smaller dumpsters do not weigh more than a regular car, and they are not likely to damage your driveway. If your driveway is new, or if you have a heavy dumpster coming, you may want to take extra precautions. You can protect your driveway by putting down lumber and plywood for the dumpster to rest on.
Large appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, stoves, dishwashers, washers, and dryers cannot be put into a landfill and should be recycled. It’s also important to safely dispose of or recycle smaller appliances that have electronic components: microwaves, bread machines, coffee makers, and rice cookers. All of these items can be taken to the Recycling Center at 2201 Sisters Walk Ct, Virginia Beach, VA 23454. Call 804-706-5877 for more information.
There are many different types of mattresses, but all of them have disposal restrictions. Innerspring mattresses can take up to 120 years to decompose in a landfill. Polyurethane foam mattresses may take up to 1,000 years to decompose. During decomposition, mattresses can house rodents and bacteria, and the springs can damage landfill liners, allowing toxic chemicals to leak into the ground. Recycling your mattress is an eco-friendly alternative. Mattress Disposal Plus can pick up your old mattress and box spring for recycling. For information on operating hours and service area, call 877-708-8329.
In Virginia Beach, tires can be recycled at the Walmart Tire and Lube Express located at 1149 Nimmo Parkway. The phone number is 757-430-1836.
