Renting a dumpster is a perfect way to get rid of residential, commercial or construction debris rather than having to haul away each load of junk individually. One question we get asked a lot is: Do I need a permit to rent a dumpster?
Unfortunately there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer to this common question, but typically the answer is no if its going on your property. Different counties and municipalities have varying regulations regarding this matter and our experienced team will be able to help you determine if this is the case and how to go about the process. Here are some likely scenarios where a permit may be required.
Commercial Dumpster Permits
Any construction or commercial project will need a dumpster on site – in some cases the project may not have sufficient space for a dumpster and you may need to place the dumpster in the street, on the sidewalk, or in the parking lot. In this case you will need to obtain a permit since these locations are classified as public property and leaving a dumpster there will get in the way of traffic and other daily activities. If the dumpster will be placed on the construction site most of the time you will not need a permit, however we recommend you check with your local county.
Residential Dumpster Permits
Most of the time a residential dumpster rental will not require a permit since typically the dumpster will be placed on your property and will not be obstructing others. Certain neighborhoods and HOA’s may have different rules regarding a dumpster rental so it’s always best to check with them first.
This changes if you live in a densely populated area where there is no space on your property to place a dumpster. In this case the dumpster will need to be placed on the street or sidewalk and you will need to obtain a permit prior to placement.
