Waste Managment FAQs

Frequently asked questions about waste management and dumpster rentals


Front Load Dumpsters:

How do I know if I need a front load dumpster?

We have found that the following types of places may need a front load dumpster: office buildings; restaurants and hotels; churches and places of worship; shopping and retail centers; schools and universities; sports, recreation and other entertainment facilities; apartments and condos; and other businesses.

Where will the front load dumpster be placed?

You select the place that provides the easiest access for you on your property. The space should be away from traffic and preferably not close to any doors into the building. Easy access for dumping trash and pick-up is also a consideration. We are available to offer suggestions as to exactly where the front load dumpster should be placed on the property.

Are there restrictions on what I can put into a front load dumpster?

Toxic and hazardous chemicals and materials should never be placed in a front load dumpster. These include—but are not limited to—paints, tires, petroleum products, car batteries and electronics. If you decide to rent a front-load dumpster, be sure to request a comprehensive list of prohibited items.

How do I load a front load dumpster?

The only requirement is that the dumpster not be overloaded or exceed weight specifications. This means that nothing should be piled above the top or hanging over the side of the dumpster.

How much are front load dumpsters?

The price varies depending on the size of the dumpster, the type of debris, the weight of the debris, your area and how often you require pick-up. When considering your options, remember that many companies require you to enter into a long-term contact.

How often will my trash be picked up?

You can arrange to have your trash picked up on a regular schedule, either weekly or up to 6 times per week depending on your location.
