Should you Get a Street Permit for a Dumpster Rental?

You’re ready to clean up at home, but you don’t have a driveway for a dumpster. It’s possible you can get a permit to have a roll-off dumpster parked on the street while you clean up. The process to get a street permit for your dumpster rental might vary from location to location. If you will be placing the dumpster in your driveway, you likely won’t need a permit. However, if you will be placing it on the street, any type of public property, or on a sidewalk, you will likely need to get a permit. The permit you need is called a right-of-way permit or a street permit. It will usually come from the city’s public works or building department for your area. It’s also a good idea to check with your homeowner’s association. Sometimes, you will need to get a permit from your HOA, as well.

How to Get a Street Permit for Your Dumpster Rental

The process to get a permit for your dumpster rental will vary from one city to another. There are some basic steps you can follow, however. If you already know the company you will be renting a dumpster from, they should be able to direct you to the right place to get a permit, too.

Find Out if You Need a Dumpster Permit

When you rent a dumpster from Waste Removal USA, we can let you know if you will need a street permit or not. Our team will answer all your dumpster permit questions and we can direct you to the right public department to obtain a permit. If you don’t need a permit, it will be a pretty easy process to rent your dumpster from us.

Contact Your Homeowners Association

When you find out you will need a permit for your dumpster rental, you should start with your homeowner’s association. You might need to get a permit from the city and from the HOA. Your HOA should be able to direct you to the right department in the city for a dumpster permit. They might be able to inform you about the fees, as well.

Contact your Public Works Department or Building Department

Depending on where you live, you might be getting a dumpster permit from the building department or the public works department. It will either be handled through the city or the county. Make sure you contact them as soon as possible. The processing time might not be so quick, depending on where you live. It’s always a good idea to allow at least a week when applying for a street permit for a dumpster rental. The city might need time to create a no-parking zone to ensure you have space for the dumpster on the street. Make sure you give them plenty of time to make room for your dumpster before it’s supposed to arrive.

Schedule Delivery for Your Dumpster

Once you receive your street permit, you can schedule your delivery. In some cities, you will need a copy of the permit or a permit number to be able to place your order for a dumpster rental. In other cities, this isn’t required.

Why do You Need a Street Permit for a Dumpster Rental?

A street permit allows you to park a dumpster on the street, sidewalk, or another portion of public property. It also informs the city and they can make arrangements to block off parking spaces or other areas to accommodate your dumpster rental. In most cities, a street permit for a dumpster rental will cost $10 to $25 per week. You might be able to pay for just a few days or for an entire month depending on your project. If you don’t get a permit, you could be subject to fines, which can cost $200 or more per day. It’s better to go through the process and get a dumpster permit than deal with hefty fines on top of the rental cost.

Follow the Rules of the Street Permit

Each city is a bit different about the rules. Your dumpster permit should spell out the rules for you. Of course, if you have any questions, you’ll be able to ask the city and they can give you the proper answers. Before you get a street permit for your dumpster rental, make sure you get the right one. You might need a permit from the city or county you live in, along with one from your HOA. Do your research and ask the right questions, so you can get the right permits and you don’t overspend. Once you have the right permits, call Waste Removal USA and we will be happy to help you with the dumpster rental you need. Our team will deliver to your home fast and put the dumpster wherever your permit allows.

In the past, I have used several companies around Atlanta but will only use Waste Removal USA from now on. From the person who answers the phone to the drivers who deliver, everyone was very professional and helpful. They are flexible and really have an appreciation for their customer's needs.
