Dumpster Rental Rules and Requirements

  • Only one dumpster may be placed at your residence for rental. The City does not allow more than one City dumpster to be placed at your residence on the same day.
  • Dumpster rental fees must be paid prior to drop off of a dumpster, with a signed waiver giving permission to enter the resident's property. Dumpsters must be placed on a hard surface and not on the grass or in the street.
  • The dumpsters are used for snow plowing, which takes priority over dumpster rental. 
  • Large dumpster rental is discontinued starting the second week in October until April (weather permitting). Small dumpster rental is available all year.
  • Dumpsters are dropped off on Friday and picked up on Monday.
  • The following items cannot be put into a dumpster: tires, paints, chemicals, liquids and food rubbish.
