Frequently asked questions

What size dumpster do you recommend for my job?


At Your Disposal offers 15, 20, and 30 yard dumpsters. Our 30 yard dumpsters are by far the most popular selection of our customers for general, yard, or construction waste. A 30-yard dumpster is approximately 22 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 6 feet tall and can hold up to 12 tons. The 30-yard dumpster would be appropriate for most construction sites, large roof tear-offs, or major demolition projects. If you have limited space to place the dumpster and you are tackling a smaller remodel, small-to-medium roof tear-off, or small yard project, you may want to consider our 15, or 20 yard dumpsters. The 15-yard dumpster is approximately 16 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 3.5 feet deep. The 20-yard dumpster is the same length and width as the 15-yard dumpster but offers an extra 1.5 feet of depth at 5 feet. Give us a call and describe your project and we will give you our recommendation.




Can I place the dumpster on the street?


Placement of a dumpster on a public street may require traffic control, public Right-Of-Way, or parking permits depending on your location. Please check with your local municipality before requesting the dumpster be placed curbside. All renters are responsible for securing necessary permits.

Will a rolloff dumpster damage my driveway?


Most driveways are unharmed when rolloff dumpsters are placed on them. However, there is always the potential for damage depending on several factors including; the quality, age, and material of the driveway, the load and weight distribution of materials placed in the container, and the slope of the driveway. For example, some concrete driveways are prone to chipping from poor installations and additional damage may occur when placing a dumpster on these driveways. AYD is not liable for any damage occuring from the normal operation of placing and retrieving our dumpsters. Our metal roller wheels are approximately 12 inches in width. Boards or plywood sheets at least this width may be used underneath the wheels to prevent damage to surfaces. These materials would need to be supplied by the customer.




Are any materials prohibited from from disposal in AYD dumpsters?


Electronics, Paint, Oil, Gasoline, Antifreeze, Batteries, Propane, Fluorescents, Asbestors, Chemicals, or any other hazardous materials as defined by the EPA https://www.epa.gov/hw/learn-basics-hazardous-waste are not allowed in our dumpsters. Please check with us if you are unsure if any of your materials are considered hazardous.




Is there a weight or size limit of the materials I am disposing of?


Materials need to be below the rim line of the dumpsters and there should be no materials overhanging the sides of the dumpsters. This is one of the reasons the 30-yard container is our most popular choice. All our loads are covered when we transport them to the waste facilities. Our maximum load limit is 12 tons of materials (24,000 lbs), though we recommend lighter loads where possible. Hometown Demolition Contractors provides calculations to help you estimate the weight of Construction and Demolition (C&D) materials, concrete waste, and landscape waste. See the link here. https://www.hometowndemolitioncontractors.com/blog/how-many-dumpsters-does-it-take-to-demolish-a-house Please note that we include 3 tons (6,000 lbs) in our base price. Each additional ton will incur a $30/ton charge. This additional charge is primarily due to the additional fees we are required to pay to dump the materials.




What forms of payment does AYD allow?


AYD accepts all major credit cards, checks, and Venmo. For commercial projects, we are happy to set up regular invoicing and payment cycles with your company.




How long can I keep the dumpster for my project?


Customers may keep our dumpsters onsite for up to 7 days. If you want it gone sooner or need it a little longer, let us know and we will work something out.




Do you offer commercial pricing?


Yes! Please call for specific pricing. Many of our customers are commercial construction, roofing, demolition, or disaster clean-up companies. We are capable of supporting large, multi-year projects and we are happy to share our experience with these types of projects. Let's discuss your project.




Can I share the dumpster with a neighbor?


Absolutely! What a great way to get to get to know your neighbors. Who knows, you may even find their trash useful. We will still need one rental agreement and one form of payment though. This is a great way to share the cost. We recommend the 30-yard dumpster.




Can the material be recycled?


Yes! In fact, we prefer to recycle every load possible. Unfortunately, mixed waste cannot be recycled. However, loads consisting entirely of green waste, or dirt, or clean concrete (without rebar) may be recycled at one of a handful of facilities along the Wasatch Front. Help protect our local environment by asking about recycling your materials. We are capable of delivering multiple containers to your job site to enable improved rates of recycled materials (discounts apply!).




What is the price of your dumpster rentals?

There are many factors that determine the price including: - Size of dumpster - Location of service - Materials being disposed of - Length of dumpster rental (7 days included) - Tons disposed of (3 tons included) We provide referal discounts and commercial pricing beyond our already competitive pricing!
