Questions about a dumpster in Cedar Rapids, IA?

Check here first for similar questions that have been asked about dumpster rental in Cedar Rapids:

When should I rent my own dumpster?

If you plan on having more debris to dispose of than what fits in your regular garbage can, then you should consider a dumpster rental. Depending on your area, the company that takes your waste may charge extra for overflowing municipal dumpsters. Renting a dumpster will prevent unnecessary fines or turmoil from the disposal company in your area.

How much does a dumpster rental cost?

The price of a rental dumpster varies depending on its size, the area that you live in, how long you rent the container, and others. If you are within our service area, then our pricing will range from $400 to $1000 for a typical at-home construction project. For major construction projects, you may end up paying more than $1000 for a dumpster rental for a typical six-month project.

How long can I keep my dumpster rental?

The beauty of operating in the Cedar Rapids area allows us to quickly deliver and pick up your rental dumpsters. We can drop off and pick up your dumpsters within one day, or you can choose to keep them for as long as need be. You can rent your dumpster for as long as you’d like and can set up a pickup schedule at any frequency of your choosing, whether it’s biweekly, monthly, or even quarterly.

Am I allowed to throw everything into the dumpsters?

Please refrain from disposing of any hazardous wastes. This includes automotive fluids, motor oil, paint cans, batteries, medical waste, household cleaners, lawn fertilizers, or any other chemicals. If our dumpsters are contaminated with hazardous waste, then we are unable to just isolate out the source and must treat the entire container as if it’s contaminated.

How do I properly fill my dumpster?

It’s advised that you fill your dumpster evenly so that trash doesn’t blow out when driving through Cedar Rapids. Cedar Rapids has strict littering laws, so it is important that you do not overfill your containers. We recommend distributing garbage evenly across the entire area of the dumpster in layers to prevent any wasted space.

Do you offer same-day service?

Yes, in the Cedar Rapids area we do in fact offer same-day service. Many customers want the sometimes smelly containers off of their property as soon as possible. We understand and offer same-day pickups!

Do I need to be home for my dumpster delivery?

When you rent a dumpster from us, we prefer for you to be home so that we can drop it off at an ideal location. We’d hate to block off an important entryway and have to come back and adjust the container’s location. Fortunately, if you’re unable to meet us for delivery, then you don’t need to be home for delivery. Just provide us with delivery instructions and we’ll do our best!

Will my dumpster be picked up automatically?

Unless told otherwise at the beginning, we will not automatically pick up your dumpster. It’s up to you to call us and tell us when it is full. When it is full, we can quickly come out (often same-day) and either pick the container up or offer an empty-and-return service.
