At J&S Dumpsters Inc, we understand that everyone’s needs are different. The size of the dumpster, how long you need it for, and where you’re located will all affect pricing. With our variety of options and personalized approach, we’ll find the right solution for your specific job – ensuring that it’s both effective AND cost-efficient.
You may put almost any sort of waste in our dumpsters, however there are a few things that we are unable to take due to landfill limitations. Tires, batteries, highly flammable materials, and liquids are all examples of prohibited items. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding what can or cannot be placed in your dumpster container.
Although you generally don’t need a permit to rent a dumpster, there are some instances where you will. An example would be if you want to put the dumpster on a public street; in that case, it’s likely you’ll need written permission from your city or county first.
We take most major credit cards. When the dumpster is delivered, we will charge your current credit card on file. If you want to pay by check or cash, please let us know when you order the dumpster and we’ll work out the details.
If an emergency comes up and you need to cancel your dumpster rental, please call us right away. We’ll do our best to work with you, but please keep in mind that we may charge a small fee if you cancel less than 24 hours before your scheduled delivery date.
