What steps do I need to take to cancel or make changes to my order?

To cancel or make changes to an order that has already been placed, call a Dumpster Central customer service representative at (877)-206-0222. Make the request at least one full business day prior to your scheduled delivery or removal to allow for processing. Be sure to have the service address on hand when making modifications to any order. As per the terms of the agreement, cancellation fees will be charged for any cancellation requests.

How can I acquire a larger container?

If the container has filled up before the project is completed, be sure to contact customer service at (877)-206-0222 to look into options. Make sure to have your order number ready at the time of the call. Review the available container sizes to decide the best fit for the project at hand. Additional fees may apply if the container size needs to be adjusted.

The date I need the container has changed. What should I do?

Any changes to an order, including the date it is to be delivered, can be changed by calling customer service at (877)-206-0222. Have the service address when making the change, and be sure to call at least one business day before the requested change to allow ample time for processing the order.

What if the location where I need the container changes?

At least one day before the scheduled delivery date, call (877)-206-0222 with the previously planned service location as well as the new service location. Prices will vary depending on the service location requested, so expect a change in the price that was previously quoted.

How far in advance do I need to order?

All online orders must be placed at least one full business day before you wish to have it delivered. For added convenience, there is an online feature that allows customers to see all of the available delivery dates before any order is finalized. Specific delivery times are not guaranteed, so make sure the container arrives before it is needed, even if it is delivered the day before it will be used.

Do you provide emergency delivery options?

Depending upon the location and the availability, emergency services are available to customers who request it. All online orders must be completed at least 36 hours in advance to allow ample time for processing and additional fees may be applied, in accordance with the terms and conditions.

Can I request service 24 hours a day?

Service can be requested for all times during the day, but emergency service will depend upon the location and the current availability. Make a request online 36 hour in advance or call customer service at (877)-206-0222. Be aware that additional fees may apply for additional or unscheduled service requests.

Can I get an additional haul if needed?

Additional hauls can be ordered, but the full initial quote will also be the cost of the second haul of the same product.

What can I do if the driver comes to deliver of remove the container before I am ready?

Any changes to an order can be requested by calling customer service at (877)-206-0222 at least one business day before the delivery or the removal is scheduled. If the driver has arrived at the service location before the container is ready for pickup, an additional trip fee of $150 will be charged on top of the quoted price for each time an unnecessary trip is made. If the container rental extends past the agreed upon rental period, additional service fees may apply.

What if I need to change the duration of time I am renting the container?

Any changes to an order involving the duration of the rental can be made by calling (877)-206-0222 with your service address in hand. If the duration is being extended, additional rental fees may be applied to the original quoted price.

Does someone need to be present during a scheduled delivery or container removal?

Having someone on-site during the delivery and removal process is not required, but it is preferred. Having someone available will allow the driver to know exactly where the container is to be placed. Otherwise, the driver will use their best judgment to find an accessible area that is safe and secure. If the container is not placed in an acceptable spot because no one was available on-site, additional fees may be applied to place the container in the desired area. When a removal is scheduled, the area must be unobstructed, so the driver can have access to the container. If the container is not accessible, additional fees will be applied.

What is the ton limit for my container?

This amount varies and is dependent upon the weight of the materials being disposed. Typical trash, wood, and aluminum are lightweight items, so the container can be filled more with these. Cement and soil are much heavier and will weigh the container down much quicker. Before deciding to add any heavy materials to the container, contact a Dumpster Central customer service representative at (877)-209-0222 for guidance. Never fill the container above the water level, regardless of the materials inside.

Will additional weight in the rented container cost me extra?

Yes. Additional fees will be applied if the weight goes above the maximum tonnage listed on the rental agreement.

What payment options are accepted at Dumpster Central?

Dumpster Central accepts all major credit cards, including: American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Checks are also an acceptable method of payment if the order is being made over the phone. Have your method of payment ready when placing any order.

What is included in the price that is quoted to me?

The price includes a container that is the selected size as well as standard disposal, fuel, and taxes. It also includes the initial delivery and the final pickup of the container. All waste disposal sites are fully approved and licensed facilities that accept waste disposal.

Will the container cause damage to my newly paved driveway?

It is highly recommended that the customer protects the area that the container will be placed with a 4’ x 8’ sheet of plywood. The area must be capable of bearing the weight of a full container as well as contractor vehicles and equipment. The customer assumes full responsibility for any damage around the container placement site, which includes the driveway or pavement that it is placed upon.

Can I put the container on the street?

Check the local laws and regulations pertaining to this at the local municipality. Permits may be required before the container can be placed there.

How large of a space do I need for the container/for delivery?

Please refer to the container dimensions listed below. It is recommended to provide space to accommodate double the amount of the width and height of the container to assure adequate height and space clearance.  

What materials are not to be placed in the container?

Hazardous waste, industrial waste, oil filters, pesticides, medical waste, solvents, paints, radioactive material, propane tanks, flammable liquids, motor oil, antifreeze, aerosol cans, tires, batteries, computers, televisions, florescent tubes, microwaves, animals, asbestos, barrels, and liquid are all unacceptable in the containers. Additional restrictions may apply in different locations. Nothing can be above the top of the container. Liability for the waste placed within the container lies with the customer, which is agreed upon in the terms and conditions of the rental agreement.
