DC Dumpster Rental Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a roll-off dumpster?

A roll-off dumpster is a heavy-duty trash container that is used for large clean-up jobs. They are a great fit for remodeling and small construction jobs, or they can be used for clean-up projects as well. A roll-off dumpster is delivered by a truck that rolls the dumpster off the back of the truck and places it where you need it most for access during your project.

When would I need to rent a dumpster?

There are many times when you might want to rent a dumpster for your project or your clean-up job, whether for commercial or residential use. Dumpsters are ideal for construction and renovation projects, and they are also a great fit for festivals or large event use. The height and depth of a dumpster make it a better kind of container to use to collect junk or debris, and it is easy to place these dumpsters where wastes from construction can be readily placed in the dumpster. It is also much easier to safely remove construction and other kinds of waste with the use of a dumpster.

What does dumpster rental cost in Washington, DC?

Dumpster rental cost is usually one of the first things that people want to know about when renting a dumpster. There are many variables that can impact the rental cost of a dumpster. You will need to consider the length of the rental, the options that you add to your order, and the size of the dumpster as factors in the total cost of your rental. The support center team can help you to calculate your total cost for your rental, and there are also options for daily, weekly, and monthly rentals that might be more affordable for your unique needs.

Will I need a permit to use a dumpster?

In some areas of Washington, DC, you will need a permit to be able to use a dumpster. This might be a permit that allows you to block the sidewalk or to place the dumpster in the road while work is being done at your location. You will need to speak with your county or city permitting office to be sure about the permits that you might need for dumpster use. Our support staff can help advise you about the best ways to find out more about permitting and associated limitations on the use of dumpster rentals in Washington. You should never assume that you will not need a permit for your job, so checking on this important factor is key to any clean-up or construction project.

What hazardous things should I avoid putting in a dumpster?

You cannot throw out asbestos, batteries, harmful chemicals, flammable liquids, or any other environmentally hazardous waste in a dumpster in Washington, DC. Our support team can help you to learn more about what you can throw out in a dumpster. Some items are allowed with an additional fee, but most of these wastes are not acceptable for use in any dumpster that Common Waste can rent to you.
