Frequently asked questions

We’ve compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions on Columbus dumpster rentals. These are specific to the Columbus area, so if you have any questions that are more general in nature, you might also find our full FAQ page helpful.

Unless you are planning to place the dumpster in a right-of-way, you will most likely not need a permit. You can have it on your driveway or anywhere on your site without needing special permission. However, if your rental will be on public property such as a street or sidewalk, you should contact the City of Columbus Building and Zoning Services targ to obtain an occupancy permit.

You will need to complete a permit application from the City of Columbus Department of Public Service detailing the specific right of way being affected, how long you’ll have the dumpster, among other pertinent information. Make sure that the dumpster is in compliance with current city regulations, such as being equipped with a weatherproof plastic envelope for the permit and reflectorized hi-intensity barricade tape.

Ohio is no stranger to any type of weather, so it would help to be prepared. You can cover the rental unit with a tarp to prevent excess moisture from getting in.

If the dumpster rental will be in the right of way but is not going to be used in a large construction project, then the permit will only last seven days, unless an extension is granted in advance. Additionally, if the unit will be situated in a parking meter space, the associated fees must also be paid.

    The driver even called to let me know when he had delivered the dumpster. I wasn't on the site and i wasn't expecting that. He followed the instructions i had given the dispatcher about placement perfectly. Thank you!
