What You Need to Know Before Renting a Dumpster in Atlanta

When it comes to planning a dumpster rental in Atlanta, there are a few important things to remember. First, you'll want to consider the size of the dumpster you need and how much the debris will weigh. Then, think about your specific project, whether it's a home renovation or clearing out space, which will determine whether you are looking at a short-term rental or long-term rental.

Don't forget about permits and regulations, which vary by location. Checking local government websites, like the Atlanta Department of Public Works and the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, can provide you with the latest info on rules and permits in your area. 

This ensures you're on the right track for a successful dumpster rental experience.

Dumpster Types and Sizes Available in Atlanta

For most uses, you will need a standard roll-off dumpster between 10 and 40 cubic yards. But specific use cases may require smaller containers such as 2 yard dumpster rental or roll-off dumpster compactors to handle huge volumes of trash.

10 Yard Roll Off Dumpster

A 10 yard dumpster is the smallest size available, and is best if you do not have a lot of debris or the space to fit a larger dumpster. A 10 yard dumpster can hold 10 cubic yards of material, about 4 pickup truck loads, typically holds approximately 2 tons of debris.

    Dumpster Rental Atlanta, GA Drop-Off and Pick-Up

    Our roll-off dumpsters are delivered by specialized trucks, carefully rolled off the back onto your chosen service location. Keep in mind that the truck typically needs over double the dumpster's length and height for successful delivery. If you plan to place the dumpster on public property, check local regulations for required permits. To ensure a smooth drop-off, clear a 60-foot space, provide approximately 23 feet of vertical clearance, consider using wooden planks for delicate driveways, and don't worry about being present during delivery – you can opt for text message updates to stay informed. Our expert drivers make the process hassle-free.
