Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions for dumpster rentals. If you have specific questions pertaining to your local regulations and fees, you might find our local information section helpful.
Renting a dumpster is a relatively simple process. ZTERS determines the best dumpster type for your project based on the amount and type of waste, rental duration, & delivery address. We give you an exact quote and setup a window to have the dumpster delivered to the jobsite. You fill up the dumpster, we come pick it up and take it to the nearest waste facility.
The size of a dumpster you need is not only going to be determined by the amount of waste you are disposing, but also what type of waste it is. Dirt and rock, for example, weigh significantly more than other construction debris or household trash, and therefore you will need a smaller container so the truck can handle the weight of the haul. Here are some typical dumpster sizes with example debris types:
|Dumpster Size||Tons Included||Debris Types|
|10 Yard||2||Flooring, piping, concrete, heavy debris|
|20 Yard||4||Lower-end commercial construction|
|30 Yard||2||Landscaping, renovation waste|
|40 Yard||2||Large scale construction|
View the scaled illustration of these dumpster sizes below.
You are not permitted to fill the dumpster with materials that exceed the top of the container. Additionally, common materials that aren’t allowed in dumpsters include (but are not limited) to:
- Hazardous Waste
- All Liquids
- Dead Animals
- Medical Waste
- Railroad Ties
- Industrial Waste
- Paint (except For Dried Latex Paint Cans With No Lids)
- Flammable Liquids
- Radioactive Material
- Pesticides And Herbicides
- Chemical Products
- Fluorescent Tubes
- Aerosol Cans
- Propane Tanks
- Oil (transmission Lubricating, Motor, Hydraulic Or Contaminated Oils Mixed With Solvents Such As Gasoline Etc.)
- Oil Filters
- Petroleum Contaminated Soil
- Lead Paint Chips
Whether or not you can put a dumpster on the street depends on the area and the laws of your local municipalities. Check with your local municipality to find out whether a license is required in your area. For example, you must obtain a Street Use permit before your dumpster is delivered and placed on a street in Seattle, Washington. This only pertains to residential use, however. When placing dumpsters in the public right-of-way for commercial purposes, you will need a Commercial Use permit instead. For more information, check out the rules and regulations for your city or county.
In most cases, a dumpster can be delivered as soon as the next day if it is ordered before noon in the applicable time zone, Monday through Friday. A rush fee may be applicable for all next day orders called in after 12:00 p.m. noon and/or for Saturday deliveries. If a dumpster is needed any sooner, call us at (877) 893-7743 and we will do our best to have the container delivered when you need it. However, please be aware that delivery times are not guaranteed. If a dumpster is required in the morning, we strongly recommend scheduling the delivery for the day before you plan to use it.
A good rule for determining the room you need for a dumpster placement is to take the length and height of the dumpster size and double it. That way, you’ll have plenty of space for the container as well as the truck to load and unload with ease. For example, a 10 yard dumpster measures 13 feet long by 3.5 feet high. So ensure that your delivery area measures at least 26 feet long with a minimum overhead clearance of 7 feet. Also ensure there is enough road clearance leading up to the worksite for the delivery truck to access.
Additional costs are applied for any amount of weight over what is included in the initial price for the dumpster. Exceeding the weight limit could potentially cause damage to the container or make it harder and more dangerous to transport. If the weight limit is significantly exceeded, your delivery will have to be split into two or more trips so that the risk is mitigated.

Dumpster Size Illustration
Our 40-yard dumpster rental includes 6 tons of weight and ten days on site.
This is the largest size dumpster available. Choose for large-scale construction and make sure you have adequate clearance for this size. The size is equivalent to roughly 12 pickup truck loads.
Our 30-yard dumpster rental includes 4 tons of weight and ten days on site.
Perfect for sizeable clean-outs, this size is ideally suited to lower-end commercial jobs, such as heavy-duty renovations and waste removal for landscaping. The size is equivalent to about nine pickup truck loads.
Our 20-yard dumpster rental includes 4 tons of weight and ten days on site.
This size is the most popular choice for small to mid-sized jobs and commercial construction. It holds approximately six pickup truck loads.
Our 10-yard dumpster rental includes 2 tons of weight and ten days on site.
This size is ideal for re-flooring, small amounts of piping, disposal of concrete and other heavy materials. The capacity is equivalent to about three pickup truck loads.
NOTE: Not all dumpsters are well suited to all locations. Once you explain your project to a dedicated ZTERS account manager, we’ll recommend the right size and style of dumpster, and we’ll establish a service schedule that gets your job done.

The delivery was fast, customer service was great, friendly, and always answered and called back promptly. Andrea was resourceful, and mike, i think, was humble and kind in letting me know delivery was late and that we wouldnt be charge for the extra time/days the dumpster had to sit til it could be picked up. They might have missed a small detail of contact persons number and the request for a change of contact person, but it worked itself out. Pickup was delayed, but everything else was efficient and no damage to fences or property, so that is good!

I was expecting a phone call before the driver left with the container so i was not prepared when he got here. He stated that he did not have anything on his paperwork to phone prior to leaving. I was hoping to have the dumpster closer to the house; but the driver clearly explained that he needed a straight line to drop the container onto the pad. Since there is an island with trees & shrubs his placement of the container was the best place. The driver was very courteous and professional.

Other than customer services, the agreement for a dumpster was a nightmare, expensive delays that put me 2-3 days behind my schedule that was given at start, pre-supply t visit driver verified as no issues but report next day claimed issues and canceled m deliver at the last minute. I was forced to do it my sef because time was out. Then they called and said they would be on-site in ten minutes that was after my equipment was on the way to the site, when they arrived it was to large of a truck for the area. very bad deal and organizational local end.
