What To Look For In A 3-Yard Dumpster

  • Check local regulations and HOA rules for 3-yard dumpster size and weight restrictions
  • Verify if a dumpster permit is needed for a 3-yard dumpster in your city
  • Ensure the 3-yard dumpster is clean and well-kept for the rental duration

Choose a company that offers driveway-safe 3-yard dumpsters like Bin-Drop

  • Know the fees associated with your 3-yard dumpster rental and avoid hidden charges
  • Consider the type of project to ensure you can dispose of all materials safely in a 3-yard dumpster

Refrain from disposing of propane tanks, fuel, oils, and hazardous substances in the dumpster. Incorrect disposal of these flammable materials is illegal in many regions.

Some common additional charges for renting a 3-yard dumpster include:

  • Hazardous waste handling fees: $350+
  • Fuel surcharges
  • Long-term rental fees
  • Overweight load adjustments: $250/hr
  • Last-minute delivery/pickup changes: $150
  • Expedited service fees: $150

In most cases, 3-yard dumpsters must be situated on private property, like a driveway or alley access, rather than on a public street. Placing them directly on the street or obstructing traffic flow typically requires permission or licenses from the town.

3-yard dumpsters must not obstruct traffic and should provide a clear path for truck access on private land, ensuring sufficient clearance.

Once your 3-yard dumpster is full and no longer required, contact us or schedule a pickup online, and we'll promptly dispatch a truck for collection.
