    • We can exchange or pickup your full dumpster, empty it, and return it typically within a day (or even same day) depending on time, location, etc.
    • Pricing is less for an exchange or dump & return as long as it’s done during the existing rental timeframe
    • We can also provide a larger or smaller one if you need more or less room then originally though during the exchange
  5. Will dumpsters damage my driveway or lawn?
    • Dumpsters will not damage your driveway, protection is always laid down to prevent any damages
    • Some surface damage may happen when delivering in grass or dirt but is typically very minimal
  6. Do I need to be home during delivery or pickup?
    • Not usually, as long as a clear location is noted during booking we can usually place the dumpster without issue
    • Often times a simple call is enough from us to get the dumpster placed
  7. How do I know when you’ll arrive?
    • We send out text alerts to you when we are on the way for both delivery and pickup
    • A text will also be sent when the dumpster has been delivered or picked up
  8. Will rain or snow affect the weight of the dumpster? How can I prevent this?
    • Rain & snow can add a small amount of weight. However it is usually not enough to cause any overages to you
    • Placing items like clothing in trash bags then throwing them in the dumpster can help keep water weight down
    • Most of the water sits on the bottom of the dumpster, keep things like mattresses in the middle or near the top of the dumpster so they won’t soak up any rain
    • Throwing a tarp over the dumpster during heavy rains can also help
