Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How Much Does a Dumpster Cost? Dumpster prices are determined almost entirely by the dumpster marketplace--by supply and demand. Haulers set their own prices for certain services and products, and based on your needs, our systems try to find you the best possible price or value. We can't actually guarantee that we're the lowest price, but, by offering a larger number of suppliers than you could reasonably reach out to in a few phone calls, we can save you time, money, and effort.
Is This Service Really Free? Yes! This service is entirely free! There is absolutely no catch or trick and absolutely no "hidden" scam. We contact vendors and encourage them to compete for your business in our selection system. In exchange, we make our money on 1) advertising and 2) referral fees, which we charge only to vendors and never to you. We don't charge you anything to use our service nor do we add any "hidden fees" to your purchase order. Try it once, and see for yourself!
How Large a Dumpster Will I Get? You determine the size dumpster you want during the order process. You can see for yourself by clicking "Find a Dumpster" in the top navigation!
How Long Can I Keep My Dumpster? This is defined by the Hauler. Logically speaking, the shorter the period of time you define, the greater the avaiable supply of Haulers. Technically, our system allows you to have one for up to ninety (90) days, but most Haulers allow for a shorter period of time than this.
Do I Need a Permit to Order a Dumpster? Each city usually has its own rules regarding permits. You should contact your local city hall to find out the rules specific to your city.
