How high can I load my dumpster?

Do I need a permit?
Each town, city and municipality has different regulations concerning dumpsters placed on their property. Please check with your local municipality.
Can I put my dumpster on the street?
Check with Proper Authorities if It’s Going on the Street Your local parking enforcement office or building permit office can give you information about permits needed if you’re putting the container on the street. This is a real concern, and you definitely need to clear this up. If you have room to place it on your own property, you won’t have these worries. If you live on a street with a neighborhood association, it is almost certain that the provisions of the homeowner’s association contract do not allow for a rolloff. Exemptions may be available by appearing before the association’s board.
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes, Mr. Cheapee’s is fully insured which includes general liability, and workers compensation for all demolition work.
Is it necessary for someone to be there when they deliver or remove my dumpster?
It is preferred, but not necessary, to have someone onsite for delivery or removal of the dumpster rental. However, please be as specific as possible when answering the delivery questions, as the driver will use their best judgment and place the rolloff container in the safest accessible area when delivering the dumpster. If an onsite contact is not available for delivery, you will be responsible for all charges involved with relocation of the dumpster should it be necessary. For removal; customer agrees to provide unobstructed access to the dumpster rental equipment on the scheduled pick-up day; if the dumpster rental is inaccessible customer is subject to additional pick-up charges, as terms and conditions apply.

Any other tips for me?
First, make sure that your street or driveway is clear for where you want the container to go. Sitting it too far from your house can cause you to have to walk everything a long distance, which is not ideal. Second, you might have to park far away from your house if the Dumpster is taking up your parking space. Lastly, these containers can be pretty tall. If you are not very tall or will have trouble heaving the rubbish up into the container, you might need to create or buy some steps or solid boxes to make this process easier on your body.
