How much debris can I put in the roll off dumpster?
Can I fill the container to the top?
You can put as much material in the dumpster as long as it does not exceed the rim.
All materials must be level off at the top of the container and nothing over and sticking out of the top. By law we are required to cover the top of each load for transport.
All materials that exceed must be taken off and you are responsible for removing the excess. We will not pick up a container that is over full and you will be charged extra for return trip fee to pick- up container.
It is recommended to let us know in advance what you are putting in the bin so we can advice you accordingly to avoid inconvenience and you ending up paying more than what is necessary.
We make every effort to protect the environment with safe and Eco-friendly practices.
