Commonly Asked Questions and Answers
How far in advance should I place my order for a dumpster rental?
We at Pro-Star Roll-Off Dumpsters try very hard to accommodate everyone's schedule. Typically 1-2 days will be required to schedule service. However, we understand that events occur and emergencies arise, and therefore we will make our best efforts to accommodate your needs. Should delivery of your site be rendered impossible due to weather conditions (muddy field, flooding, ice, etc.), we will deliver your order as soon as it is safe to do so.
How much does it cost to rent a dumpster?
Rates vary depending on dumpster size, contents being disposed and delivery location. Please note that while a smaller dumpster may be cheaper, it may not provide the collection capacity you need. Please contact us so we may discuss your specific needs.
What may be placed in a dumpster?
Dumpsters may be used for household trash, paper, landscaping materials such as brush and leaves, and construction waste. Concrete is allowed in dumpsters but all reinforcing mesh or steel must be removed before placement in the dumpster.
We do not accept the following items for disposal:
- Oil and other automotive fluids
- Air conditioners
- Pesticides and fertilizers
- Asbestos shingles
- Waste products deemed hazardous by EPA
Should you need to discard any of the items mentioned in the list above, please contact your local government for location of a waste facility that will accept them.
How much space do I need to accommodate a dumpster?
Our dumpsters are 8 feet wide and 22 feet long with sides from 4 feet to 7 1/2 feet in height. We require that there be minimum clearance of 20 feet above, 50 feet in front and a minimum of 5 feet on either side of the dumpster for safe delivery. The dumpster must be on level ground and there should be no power lines or overhanging tree branches above it. Should you have a specific spot where you want the dumpster placed, please mark such location and/or meet our driver and direct them to the specific location. If we need to return to your job to relocate a dumpster, you will incur additional fees.
We reserve the right to refuse service to job sites that we cannot safely deliver a container.
What method of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
