How to Rent a Dumpster in Winston-Salem

If you're looking for a hassle-free solution to complete large projects quickly and safely, renting a dumpster is the way to go. Here are the simple steps to follow:

  1. Decide if you need a dumpster for your project

    Not every project needs a dumpster. You should only rent a dumpster if you know you will generate more waste than you can physically handle yourself.

  2. Determine the type of materials you need to dispose of

    Consider the debris that will be generated from your project, whether that is green waste, construction debris, concrete chunks, or another type of material.

  3. Choose an appropriate dumpster size and weight limit.

    Figure out the amount of weight you need to hold all of your project's waste so that you can estimate the size dumpster and the weight limit you need for your debris.

  4. Select a rental period that works for you

    We offer a free two-week rental period, so you can choose the date for those two weeks to start.

  5. Place your order by phone, email, or online.

    We provide you with 3 ways to order dumpsters for your convenience.

  6. Prepare for the delivery of the dumpster by clearing any obstacles that may impede delivery.

    Before your dumpster delivery, make sure you have your phone notifications on so that you are alerted when your dumpster is on its way and when it is delivered.

You do not have to be present during the delivery, but you must prepare for the arrival of the dumpster. Please make sure that there are at least 60 feet of clear space in front of the designated location for the dumpster, and that there is a vertical clearance of 23 feet free from any overhead obstructions such as tree branches or wires.

When filling a dumpster, there are some important guidelines to follow for safety:

  • Always avoid overfilling the dumpster beyond the rim. This can make transportation unsafe and result in extra fees for you if we can't pick up your dumpster.

  • Load the dumpster evenly, placing heavier materials at the bottom and lighter items on top. This ensures that the weight is distributed evenly and the dumpster can be transported safely.

  • Avoid putting hard-to-remove materials like glue or paint in the dumpster, as this can cause damage or result in additional fees.

When you are done with your dumpster, simply let us know when you would like it picked up by calling our customer service or logging into your account. If you do not schedule a pickup, we will automatically pick up the dumpster at the end of the 14-day rental period.

After we pick up the dumpster, it will be transported to a station where it will be weighed. If the weight is within the limit you selected, you will not be charged any additional fees. However, if you do go over the weight limit, you will be charged an excess weight fee. We will send you an email with a detailed breakdown of the additional charges.
