You May Be Able To Place Your Residential Dumpster Rental In The Street


When you are renting a dumpster, you might find that you are running out of space and you might be forced to place your dumpster somewhere else. The street might be the only feasible option and you might wonder if you're allowed to do so. This depends on your jurisdiction.

Paperwork Might Be Required 

Depending on your jurisdiction, you may be allowed to place the dumpster in the street. However, you will need to determine if you are required to fill out paperwork and obtain a permit before doing so. You will typically need to provide the name of the dumpster rental company you will be working with, the exact location where the dumpster will be placed, and how long you will have the dumpster for.

Safety First

To reduce the risk of accidents, you will need to place reflectors, lights, and traffic cones around the dumpster so that it's easier for drivers to see. 

Even with a permit, you will not be able to place the dumpster in certain locations such as in front of:

  • Valet areas
  • Fire hydrants
  • Bus stops
  • Parking meters
  • Restricted areas

Complete the Project Before the Permit Expires

The dumpster must only be kept on the street for as long as the permit allows. Therefore, you will want to complete the project as quickly as possible so that you will not be fined if you do not remove the dumpster at the agreed time. You may try to contact the city if you would like to have an extension to your permit.

A Residential Dumpster Rental Service Can Help You

Fortunately, in many cases, you won't have to obtain the permit by yourself, and many dumpster rental companies will assist you. They will explain to you whether you are allowed to place the permit in the street and the steps you must take to obtain the permit.

Get Started as Soon as Possible

Because the process of obtaining a permit can sometimes be difficult, you may not want to delay when hiring dumpster rental services. The sooner you contact the dumpster rental company, the more likely a dumpster will be available and the more likely that you will be able to obtain the necessary permit. Then, you will be able to have all of your garbage and such hauled away before the permit expires.
