Proper Dumpster Loading

Proper Dumpster Loading

So, you’ve decided to hire the professionals at Johnny Bobby’s Junk Hauling & Roll-Off Dumpsters to take care of your debris removal needs. We’ve quoted you a price. We’ve arranged to have a dumpster placed at your location until your project is finished and you’re ready for us to safely remove the debris from your premises. However, before we can pick up your debris, we need to let you know how to properly pack your dumpster.

When renting one of our dumpsters, you will want to maximize the space. We encourage these proper dumpster loading tips, as we want you to get as much value as possible from your rental. That being said, there is a wrong and a right way to pack one of our dumpsters. You might be tempted to stuff it with everything that you’ve got, even to the point of overloading. Do not do this. An overloaded dumpster creates safety hazards, and it could actually cost you more than you’re trying to save.

Improperly Loaded Dumpsters

One of our top priorities here at Johnny Bobby’s Junk Hauling is to make sure that every dumpster is safely loaded and transported to the disposal site. The first step to ensuring a safe dumpster haul is selecting the correct size receptacle. We offer our customers a variety of dumpster sizes to choose from. This way you can match the size dumpster to the size of your project and your debris removal needs. To make sure that nothing falls out or flies in the air during transportation, we require that you place all your debris up to the side railing—not above.

Larger Dumpster Required

For proper dumpster loading, please make sure that you select the right dumpster size to fit your needs. The professionals at Johnny Bobby’s Junk Hauling & Roll-Off Dumpsters can help you with the size selection. We will not pick up and move an overloaded roll-off dumpster. If we arrive and see that your dumpster is overloaded, our drivers will not pick up the receptacle. You will also incur additional fees and penalties for the dumpster being overloaded. Please ensure that nothing is sticking out from the sides of your dumpster.

Blocked Dumpster

In order to collect your dumpster, our trucks need to be able to safely back in. Make sure that the area surrounding the dumpster is clear of all vehicles or items. A blocked-in dumpster means that we cannot pick up your items from your project. You will be charged for the failed pickup. We will then need to reschedule the collection of your dumpster.

Although you are renting a dumpster, you cannot put any and everything in there. If you are unsure about what items may be allowed, check your invoice or give the experts at Johnny Bobby’s Junk Hauling & Roll-Off Dumpsters a call and we will happily guide you.

Finally, food waste and other odor-causing debris are not allowed in our dumpsters. Additionally, under no circumstances should you place hazardous materials of any kind within our dumpsters. Essentially, the rules work in the same way as city garbage collection. Again, if you have any questions, please give us a call.
