What is the Average Rental Period for a 40 Yard Dumpster?

Ready to rent a 40-yard dumpster? Follow these four simple steps to prepare for a seamless delivery:

  1. Leave Space: Before your 40-yard dumpster arrives, clear your driveway of any obstacles, ensuring it's at least 60 feet long. We recommend moving your vehicles to the street and opening any gates to your property for easy access.
  2. Check Surroundings: Ensure a smooth delivery by selecting a drop-off location with at least 23-25 feet of vertical clearance. This allows our driver ample space to raise and position the dumpster, avoiding any low-hanging wires or branches.
  3. Don't Wait: Your dumpster can be delivered at any time throughout the day. We prioritize fuel-efficient routes for our deliveries, so it's best to prepare your chosen location in advance. Rest assured, you don't need to be present when the dumpster arrives.
  4. Stay Aware: Be mindful of your 40-yard dumpster's weight limit and avoid overfilling it. Remember, exceeding the weight limit or disposing of prohibited items will result in additional fees.

A 40-yard dumpster rental offers ample space for your project, holding the equivalent of:

The 40-yard dumpster is usually the largest size available for rent from our company. We typically recommend these large dumpsters for major projects like commercial renovations or large-scale home cleanouts.
